If the watch can also have someone’s emotions, then the dual time zone is a perfect lover. The barrier between the northern and southern hemispheres may be just a difference in distance, but the emotion will not become a resistance because of distance. When we are on a business trip or study abroad, the breath of home and love may spread from our wrists. Today I recommend a Longines dual time zone watch. I believe that for many friends who like this feature, nothing is more real than the high quality and affordable price. Official model: L2.718.104.22.168
On the whole, the outline of this watch is very clear, and the black dial is not difficult for the luminous hands, even in the dark night, to know the time quickly.
On the side of the crown, we can clearly identify the outline of the crown from the shiny stainless steel material. The Longines logo is clearly engraved on the crown, highlighting its quality and telling its own story.
The strap made of synthetic material is very wear-resistant, more durable than ordinary leather, and very comfortable. The brand’s settings also make this watch more compatible, whether it is dinner or daily, it is your Good companion.
On the non-crown side, we see that the polishing of stainless steel is very detailed. We must know that many times our misunderstanding of stainless steel lies in the fact that we don’t have a good understanding of this metal. In many necessary occasions, such a material can stand on your own.
The design of the pin buckle highlights the quality and sublimates the practicality. We see the Longines logo engraved on the front of the buckle, which makes the buckle look very luxurious.
Stainless steel lugs will not worry about scratching under any circumstances. The diameter of this lug is relatively short, which not only makes the wearer more comfortable, but also prepares for tightening the strap.
The diameter of the dial reaches 40 mm, which caters to the retro theme. It is a good choice for both men and women. The dual time zone pointer is designed in red to make the function clearer. The L619.2 automatic movement runs stably, and its performance is also remarkable.
In summary: This watch is very suitable for daily wear. Not only is the movement excellent, but the appearance is also very simple and simple design, which has won the hearts of many Longines fans. On many occasions, the low-key and restraint of this watch can add a lot of color to your dress, and the price is also very suitable. If friends like it, you can try it in the store.

NTPT® carbon fiber material consists of multiple layers of parallel filaments, which are separated from carbon fibers. These thin layers not exceeding 30 microns are first immersed in a resin and then woven by a special machine. There is a 45 ° angle between the layers, creating a special visual effect similar to rare wood. After being heated to 120 ° with 6 bar pressure, NTPT® carbon fiber material can be sent to Richard Mille’s watch case factory in Proart for CNC machining.

At the beginning of the new year, Blancpain launched a limited edition of the Chinese series of Villeret classic calendars with the element of the Chinese zodiac. At 12 o’clock on the front of the dial, the spirited rooster is standing on the flawless large fire enamel dial window in a vigorous posture, striving for the New Year.

Leave the old and welcome the new, and start a new turn in life
The turn of fate, like the rooster’s throat spreading at dawn, injected new impetus into the life of fright. The promotion of positions, the addition of family members, the investment potential, the opportunity for cooperation … The occasional operation of the gift of fate is a rare surprise in life. Rather than a coincidence, it is a long-term goodwill and gratitude, and finally it is rewarded.
The Blancpain Chinese Calendar is a limited edition of the Year of the Rooster, which once again combines high-end watchmaking with traditional Chinese elements. If you taste it carefully, you can see that the rotating rooster-shaped oscillating weight has a subtle harmonic sound of ‘turning machine’, which is the auspicious sign of ‘new year praying’ in traditional Chinese culture. The auspicious rooster totem implying the fortune is coming to life. It automatically winds up with the swing of the wrist watch, and in the vigorous momentum, welcomes the year of good luck that is suddenly bright and cheerful.
Blancpain Chinese Calendar Year of the Rooster Platinum Limited Edition
The watch uses a 45mm diameter platinum case, the crown is decorated with a convex round cut ruby, and the lower part of the lug is equipped with 5 concealed adjustment buttons patented by Blancpain, which at the same time ensure the simple and smooth lines on the side. .

The Blancpain Chinese Calendar is limited to 36 pieces in Platinum, numbered 1 to 50, skipped every 4th. There are also non-limited edition red gold models to choose from.
Blancpain Villeret Classic Chinese Calendar
Blancpain has always paid tribute to the long-established traditional Chinese culture. It has even shown its masterpieces in timepieces, freehand aesthetics, folk legends and other oriental elements. Rather than drawing only Chinese elements on the dial, the Chinese calendar is completely subverted in functionality from the past. In 2012, Blancpain launched the brand’s first Chinese calendar watch. After five and a half years of research on the Chinese calendar and re-invention of the movement device, Blancpain combined the dual-track calendar with the lunar calendar and the single-track legislative calendar to overcome the irregularities of the Chinese calendar’s yin and yang calendar cycle. Many challenges, pioneeringly present the traditional Chinese timekeeping method (Zodiac Year, Tiangan Earthly Branches, Five Elements, Hours, Moon Phases) clearly and accurately on the square inch dial. Once this landmark model came out, it became a watch collection of fans from all over the world. From then on, when every Chinese year arrives, the master of Blancpain gold carving will operate, transforming the year of the zodiac into a new animal figure decoration, engraving on limited edition models. Among them, the Chinese calendar for the Year of the Dragon, Snake and Horse is limited to 20 pieces in platinum, numbered 1 to 20; the platinum version for the year of sheep, monkey, and chicken is limited to 36 pieces, numbered 1 to 50, skip 4 to skip.
Blancpain Chinese Calendar with Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey and Rooster
The layout of the chronograph dial is exquisite, and the hour, minute and standard calendars jump on the dial. It also integrates important timing elements in the traditional Chinese calendar, such as twelve hours (twenty-four hours), the lunar date, the lunar month (combined with the leap month display), ten The zodiac year even includes five elements and ten heavenly stems. The twelve zodiac signs correspond to the twelve Earthly Branches, which are matched with the Ten Heavenly Stems in turn, forming sixty basic units or sixty stems, commonly known as ‘sixty Jiazi’, which constitute the core content of traditional Chinese culture. As an important timekeeping element in Blancpain’s full calendar watch, the moon phase profit and loss function is more closely related to the traditional Chinese calendar, which played an important role in the operation of this timepiece.
Different from the standard calendar with the solar day as the basic unit, the Chinese traditional lunar calendar uses the yin and yang calendar system, that is, the monthly cycle (29.53059
Days) as the basic unit of the solar calendar. A lunar year contains 12 lunar months (354.36707 days), which is less than a lunar year (365.242374
Days) about 11 days less. Therefore, there are leap months in some years to meet the cycle of changing seasons. Since each Chinese lunar month (including the leap month) begins on the day of the new moon, the month is 29 or 30 days long. It can be seen that the lunar year including the leap month is actually 13 months, which is longer than the solar calendar; on the contrary, the lunar year without the leap month is only 12 months, which is shorter than the solar year. The typical characteristic of this traditional calendar is the cause of the uncertain date of the Chinese New Year.
Blancpain Chinese Calendar Movement
Powered by Blancpain’s innovative 3638 movement
Today, tourbillon watches usually only have more than 200 parts. This Chinese calendar is equipped with a 3638 self-winding movement, consisting of 464 parts set with 39 gems, and a power reserve of up to 7 days.
