Congratulations To Nfl Legend Tom Brady

Tom Brady is the core player of his team against the Atlanta Falcons. He has become part of the American football legend.

   The extraordinary performance against the Atlanta Falcons has allowed Tom Brady to win again this year’s most important game … and set three new records.
   He only needs to be on the field to set the first of these three records. He did it, becoming the first rugby player to reach the seven finals. But to set another two records, he has to show his strength.
   As the core player of the most important game of the year, Tom Brady led his New England Patriots to win the game. He had to withstand the pressure. His team was 25 points behind at the end of the third quarter. They successfully reversed in overtime. Stress-free Tom Brady passed 466 yards: another record for this game.
   This fifth victory made him the most successful quarterback in NFL history, but it was not enough to make him the most popular player on the planet. He will definitely win his sixth victory next season!

Sesame-sized Mechanical Magic Breguet Tradition 7047

Ref. 7047 is the 2007 Breguet Breguet model and the first complication of the Tradition series. It has undergone several changes since its launch, the most important of which was platinum in 2010. Edition, this change not only changed the case to platinum, the surface and the exposed substrate splint have been blackened, the core modification is to replace the hairspring with silicon, but also a Breguet-type three-dimensional spring This move not only specifically improved the performance of the movement, but also how to make the three-dimensional coiled Breguet hairspring in the process of silicon hairspring has also caused a discussion in the industry. Since then, Breguet has introduced this technology to other 7047 styles. For the platinum and rose gold versions that are still in service in the official catalog, both models use Breguet hairsprings made of silicon.

Pagoda wheels, barrels, tourbillons, and hour and minute plates roughly occupy the four corners of the surface, and the composition is still called equilibrium. There is a coaxial power reserve indicator on the barrel. This scale is a bit short for 50 hours of energy storage.

Feature one: the sesame chain with the open face design is completely natural
7047 is a sesame chain tourbillon. The launch of the Sesame-chain Tourbillon on Tradition is a magical stroke. This series of antique pocket watches from Breguet features a completely open face and minimizes the hour and minute dial with substantial time display, making the movement structure only possible. Show off. What the Tradition before 7047 can reveal is the middle barrel, travelling wheel train and escapement. This one has a pagoda wheel, sesame chain and a large tourbillon. These elements have to be found in general models. It’s not too ostentatious to show off, but it’s perfectly natural to put it on top of it, and it’s worth it.

In terms of the overall size of the tourbillon, it is a bold practice to fix it with only one arm, but the thickness of the bridge can be seen from the side, and this is more in line with the historical design style of the series. The balance wheel also uses the series of retro screw balances.

Feature two: the operating principle of sesame chain
The technical highlights of the models are basically ancient methods, and there are many interpretations of modern technology. The power section uses a sesame chain mechanism. The mainspring box is connected to the pagoda wheel through the sesame chain. When the mainspring is full, the sesame chain is wound around the top of the pagoda wheel with a smaller diameter. The mainspring box needs to be used for linkage. The larger force is just used to consume too strong torque when the full chain is consumed, and when the clockwork power is about to run out, the sesame chain is also rolled to the bottom of the pagoda wheel with a larger diameter. The high force is just in line with the torsion state of the mainspring. With this uniform movement, the torsional force transmitted from the mainspring box to the running gear can be maintained at a constant curve from beginning to end, making the movement more stable.

Unlike the other Traditions, the 7047 wheels are mainly driven from the back (back side). Although the power section and the escapement are on the front, they may take up too much space, so the middle link Both travel time trains are configured on the back

Feature three: intentional antique specifications
The part of the tourbillon here adopts the large size with ancient meaning. The size of the whole cage is about 16mm. In order to drive such a large device, they adopted several measures. In addition to the silicon balance spring mentioned at the beginning, the escapement fork and escape wheel of the escapement were also made of silicon. In addition, before the model was introduced into silicon, the movement The balance wheel and tourbillon cage are already made of titanium. The purpose of these actions is to reduce the weight of the device, on the one hand, to reduce the power load, and on the other hand, to reduce the impact of inertia centrifugal force on accuracy. In addition, the balance here has a low frequency of 18,000vph, which is of course to reduce the burden on the power section, but on such a retro model, the low-speed balance is more in line with the overall temperament.

The Fusion Of Japanese Decorative Arts And The Swiss Watchmaking Industry

In recent years, Japanese decorative techniques have quietly penetrated into the Swiss watchmaking industry. This root is based on common values, especially the attention to detail and portrayal. Wood grain metal, red painting, lacquer art, dill painting, etc. Many Japanese decorative arts have already died, and can only wait for their extinction, but now they are glamorous and open new windows in the Swiss watchmaking industry. Leaving aside the traditional craftsmanship of engraving, enamel and gem setting, many Swiss watchmakers have already paid tribute to Japanese master craftsmen. They are the last guardians of those ancient skills, and they are respected as ‘national treasures’ by the Japanese. The seemingly accidental encounter has a solid foundation, and it is a bridge of communication and collaboration for the almost paranoid focus on details. The latest example is from Harry Winston. The Premiere Precious Weaving 36mm self-winding watch uses Japanese weaving techniques, with gold threads and natural silver mother-of-pearl flakes overlapping each other. In addition to commercial success, Swiss watchmakers seem to have found a second self in the painstaking tradition of Japanese artisans.

Dutch forerunner

The work of Kees Engelbarts, the dial is inspired by the Japanese sword blade, traditionally made of wood grain metal
   Almost certainly, Kees Engelbarts was the first person to introduce Japanese decorative techniques to the Swiss watchmaking industry. Kees Engelbarts was born in the Netherlands and moved to Geneva in the 1980s. He trained in the Netherlands and Germany to learn about hand-carving. In his 1997 watchmaking debut, Kees Engelbarts chose a technology that the industry had never explored before-Mokume-gane, literally wood-grain metal. Laying various metal flakes on top of each other and then heating them, the resulting effect is strikingly similar to natural wood grain. The secret lies in the different melting points of the metals. This craft was originally used to make Japanese knives and is now popular in the jewelry industry. ‘I was an apprentice when I learned about wood grain metal,’ said Kees Engelbarts. ‘I have been to Japan more than twenty times, but I never really studied the technique there. But I met with my colleagues and learned from them.’

Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’ Art ‘Les Masques’
   More than a decade later, the work of Kees Engelbarts has become a source of inspiration for other brands, and Vacheron Constantin is one of them. Vacheron Constantin was originally a supporter of Métiers d’ Art, and in 2010 it became the first watchmaker to present the art of painting. Artisans create patterns by spraying gold powder on wet paint, the so-called dill painting, which means ‘spray into a painting.’ ‘Métiers d’Art ‘Les Masques’ is a brand new attempt by Vacheron Constantin, and the huge response is far beyond the watchmaking circle,’ recalled Christian Selmoni, art director. ‘Zôhiko was one of the oldest lacquerware workshops in Japan. The cooperation was completely unexpected, and this is the beginning of everything! ”Subsequently, the Métiers d’Art ‘La Symbolique des Laques’ series launched watches with different themes within three years, each year a set of three new watches , Limited to twenty sets.

Collision of ideas

Chopard L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Monkey

Master Makie Koizumi has painted gold on the dial
   Chopard then launched a Japanese-style watch collection: L.U.C XP Urushi. The series is named after a rare tree that is only present in Japan and China. Its sap can be used to make the base paint of the maki painting technique. ‘A handful of watches from the hands of lacquer master Kiichiro Masura in 2008 have been exhibited in Japan,’ said Guy Bove, a former Chopard creative director (now a consultant). ‘The idea was to apply a certain material technique , Presents Chopard watchmaking, and resonates with Japan. We like those watches very much, and so does the public, so the brand decided to make a complete collection. ‘At the Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show this year, the Lupin XP Urushi Year of the Monkey launched by Chopard. The limited edition watch is the latest masterpiece of this series.

Kari Voutilainen, 28 Hisui watch, 29 mm in platinum case, hour and minute display function, the manual winding movement equipped with it is completely handmade, the dial is decorated with dill painting technology, the material is gold powder and shell fragments

   Although Kari Voutilainen is an advocate of pure Swiss watchmaking tradition, he also opens his heart and embraces Japanese craftsmanship. In 2011, Kari Voutilainen released the first collaboration between the Personal Trava Valley Workshop and Wajma (a small fishing village in eastern Tokyo) Unryuan Studio. This studio, called ‘Yunlongyu’, is hosted by ‘The National Treasure of the World’, Takao Kitamura, and continues the art of painting. In addition to gold powder and lacquer, the artist’s creative materials also include gold foil, green turquoise shell and New Zealand abalone shell, achieving a unique rainbow miniature mosaic artistic effect. ‘From 1999 to 2002, I taught at WOSTEP (Swiss Watchmaker Training and Education Project), and a Japanese student introduced me to Kitamura Tatsuo,’ explained Kari Voutilainen. ‘If I just picked up the phone, I asked for it, He would not agree to see me, he must be recommended. ‘Initial contact has developed into mutual respect. So far, the two have worked together to create six timepiece works. ‘What matters to me is the ethics and good values ​​behind Japanese art, and this explains why the atmosphere between the two workshops is so similar.’

Continuation of tradition

Hermès Slim dʼHermès Koma Kurabe watch, Saffle porcelain dial, detailed with red painting, showing the annual horse racing scene of the Shrine
   In 2015, Hermès launched the Slim dʼHermès Koma Kurabe watch. It came out of both unexpected invitations and thanks to both parties’ interest in each other’s work. ‘In 2010, a small Hermès delegation went to Kanazawa and, under the direction of the Japanese authorities, explored local handicrafts,’ recalled Art Director Philippe Delhotal. ‘It was during this trip that I met Fukuyama, Fukushima. He is an expert in Japanese red painting crafts, especially good at painting on ceramics. I asked him if he was interested in making watch dials, and he gladly agreed. ‘After extensive research, it took another two years to finally select Saffle porcelain as the dial Material. The pigment comes from iron oxide powder and has a bright magenta color. Takeshima Fukushima reproduces the scene of the Koma Kurabe horse racing event on the dial. This event is held once a year at the Tokyo Kamobetsu Shrine (built in 678 AD).

Japanese national treasure master craftsman, ceramic painting expert Takeyama Fukushima
   The popularity of Métiers d’Art in the watchmaking industry has helped revive some of the forgotten skills; watchmakers have shown what Guy Bove has called an ‘open mindset’ and are beginning to explore a more distant horizon; and Japan is very happy Welcome on the ground. Kari Voutilainen said excitedly: ‘I was immediately overwhelmed by the attention to detail and the superb craftsmanship. It was shocking.’ Christian Selmoni confirmed: ‘Japanese do not speak English, we do not speak Japanese. But after a while After time, we can be more in line with the plating company than before. This is a truly rich and fulfilling experience. ‘For the Japanese,’ Working with Swiss watchmakers is also a way for them to continue their tradition. ‘

The watch team’s special front report team has begun to work, and they will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive watch fair reports. Now let’s take a look at the big pictures of the latest watches launched by IWC at the Geneva Watch Fair.

   This watch is equipped with a dual moon phase display of the IWC Portuguese series perpetual calendar watch, showing the change of the moon phase profit and loss in the northern and southern hemispheres in a mirror-symmetrical manner. This is also the first for IWC engineers to allow Southern Hemisphere wearers to watch the correct moon phase position on the dial. For the first time, this watch no longer has a countdown display showing the number of days remaining from the next full moon. Instead, watch designers have designed the small dial of the entire moon phase display as a starry night sky, the color of the small dial is consistent with that of the large dial. In this way, the moon and stars seem to be suspended in the boundless sky. The application of the IWC Portuguese classic rail-type minute ring is another new feature in the design. As a result, this watch is more similar in appearance to the classic Portuguese founder. The date and day display dials are the same color as the dial, making the entire dial look more balanced and elegant.

Wrist Becomes A Great Place To Show Off Your Wealth, Reveal The Satire Phenomenon In The High-end Watch Industry

Although the invention of the watch conforms to the logic of pragmatism, to this day, ‘high-end watches’ have become pure luxury. In fact, they determine the price at the beginning. For many companies, this is already a matter of brand pride, but when the world of luxury and utility collides, there will naturally be something ironic or confusing.

1. Accuracy is not important

 Perhaps for most watch lovers who are obsessed with watches, the most emotionally unacceptable thing is that mechanical watches are not as accurate as quartz electronic watches, and the gap is not small. Quartz watches with low cost and often rough design, although not aesthetically pleasing to our eyes, do perform better than high-end mechanical watches. Watch lovers have made intrinsic value judgments, and believe that the traditional design and beauty of a watch are more important than precision. Ironically, we wear watches to watch time.

 This issue is not so important now. No matter where we go, we are surrounded by high-precision digital clocks, and their times are often calibrated according to higher-precision clocks. So if our watch is a few seconds slower, we can either manually calibrate it or simply look at the clock around it-if the time must be accurate to the second. For some, however, obsessed with precision can lead to some degree of cognitive dissonance. In most cities, you can buy a quartz watch for up to $ 10. Its battery can be used for at least two years, and the time display error of each month is within 15 seconds. Of course, there are many quartz watches with much higher precision, and many high-end mechanical watches will be professionally tested by the Swiss company C.O.S.C. (Swiss official observatory testing agency). The watchmaking brand sends the movement of the product for inspection, and the movement that reaches a certain standard will obtain the COSC precision timing certification. Precision watch-certified watches usually have an error of about 5 seconds per day, which is very different from the cheap quartz movement with an error of 15 seconds per month. In terms of time display, watch lovers do not put precision first, which may be a bit ironic, after all, expensive high-end watches should be extremely enjoyable. But this does not detract from our love for high-end watches, and it is just as good.

3. The additional functions that people value when buying watches are rarely used.

 In watch terminology, the so-called ‘additional functions’ refer to functions or features such as timers and calendar displays. Additional features make the movement of a mechanical watch more interesting, potentially more useful, and more complex … On the one hand, it increases the interest of collectors, on the other hand, it also increases the value of watches, so the more additional functions, the better. If it is a timepiece of investment value, which is only occasionally worn, then such a design cannot be better. But if it is a daily-wearing watch, how practical are those various additional functions? It turns out that it is not as practical as people think.

 Of course, the irony is that, despite the fact that these additional functions or features are not practical, people are rushing to do so. In addition to time display, date display, timer (stopwatch), and perhaps a dual time zone time display function, most of the additional functions of high-end watches are just furnishings, the purpose is to convince you how worthy this watch is.

4. Sorry, do you want the manual?

 Tools and instruments are usually accompanied by instructions. Clothing and jewellery are not included-this may be because they do not require much explanation in themselves. Watches are somewhere in between, and a few merchants provide exquisite and detailed user manuals (even if the manual is not perfect, it is at least more practical). But most businesses will not teach you how to use this new tool worn on your wrist, except to sell you a watch. Experienced watch lovers take it for granted. After all, the knowledge of the use of mechanical watches is often universal, knowing how to use a watch, other watches will naturally be used. But this does not always apply to exotic clocks. Watchmakers seem to have drawn too much inspiration from the fashion and jewellery world (perhaps because watches have been mostly sold in jewellery stores for many years) and often overlook the need to provide customers with proper documentation guidelines. Questions from customers flew like snow flakes. Most of them asked how to set the time, how to use the timer function, why the mechanical watch did not leave after one week, and how to set the calendar.

 How did the watchmaker respond? Watchmakers generally claim that whether it is to instruct customers to use a new watch, or to adjust the size of the strap according to the customer’s wrist circumference, this is a retailer’s business. It’s not unreasonable to say so, after all, people usually buy watches as gifts, and many people think about it after reading the manual. It is not like a general instrument brand and has a technical support call center. Therefore, watch lovers often can only resort to the Internet, using the Internet as a universal manual for high-end mechanical tools.

5. The waterproof rating is often confusing.

 If your watch is water-resistant to 30 meters, you may be able to wear it to wash your hands at best, because it is generally believed that such a degree of water resistance can ensure that the watch does not enter water when it is splashed with water . If the water resistance is 50 meters, then you can put it in the pool and gently dip it in water, or wear it to bathe, there may be no problem. If the water resistance is 100 meters, the watch company claims that you can wear it to swim in the sea, as long as you dive down to a few feet. However, if the watch is water-resistant to two or three hundred meters, diving with it may not be a problem. Don’t forget, most waterproof ratings are the results of tests under static conditions. When people play, the pressure on the watch’s seal will be much greater.
Interestingly, most people will never dive below 100 meters in their lifetime. What’s more interesting is that some watches have a water resistance of 500 meters, 1000 meters, or even higher. Under such a deep water, even if the watch does not enter the water, most people will lose their lives.
2. Pricing based on customers’ psychology.

 To some extent, watches and older pocket watches have always been luxury items. The first timepieces that came out were extremely high-end, and only the elite among the elite could afford it. This is because every watch requires the craftsman (watchmaker) with great skill to make it by hand. In the era of the industrial revolution, the manufacture of wristwatches began to follow the trend of the times, and most of the Americans promoted the invention of watchmaking machines to mass produce mechanical watch movements. Since then, low-volume production tables and high-priced limit tables have co-existed in the market, and are targeted at various types of consumers.

 In the 1980s, with the appearance of cheap, mass-produced quartz movement watches, this trend began to intensify. Quartz movement is not only less expensive than mechanical movement, but also has superior performance. The mechanical watch industry has changed and began to transform into the high-end luxury goods industry. The competition between mechanical watches and quartz watches is not performance, but grade, design, elegance and status. Mechanical watches have become a symbol of status, wealth, and they have begun to price accordingly. Ironically, most mechanical watch makers, like quartz watch makers, rely on a number of cost-reducing industrial technologies, which have left many of the unique features of mechanical watches from the start.

 The mechanical watch has ushered in a new era. In this era, the clock is no longer a pure timing tool. Its function is to firstly show the identity of the wearer to the people around it, and secondly to display the time. In order to attract ‘savory’ buyers, watch brand pricing does not necessarily depend on the cost of the watch, but on what type of customers they want to attract. Pricing is both a psychological battle and a valuation based on design standards. Watchmaking brands reflect on: ‘What kind of people do we want to wear our watches? Is it someone who can spend $ 5,000 or $ 50,000 on a watch?’ This strategy works surprisingly well, but many brands are A little overheated when locating the target customers.

Montblanc Heritage Chronograph Annual Calendar Dagham Diamond Limited Edition 90 Pieces

Since the establishment of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, the length of the month has changed cyclically, which makes the wearer of the watch need to set the date and week according to the number of days in each month. For this reason, Montblanc watchmakers reduce the reading time through the calendar watch, so that the wearer only needs to manually set the date once on the morning of March 1 of the year. At other times, as long as the watch is fully wound and functioning properly, this complex device can automatically ensure that all calendar-related functions have the required settings and accurately display calendar information.
Efficient Almanac Complex
   Montblanc Heritage Precision Chronograph Annual Calendar Dagam Diamond Limited Edition calendar display information such as the week at 9 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock and the month at 12 o’clock are all controlled by the almanac complex function. This structure automatically controls the number of days to be displayed according to the length of the current month (such as 30 or 31 days), but for February with a length of 28 or 29 days, you need to set it manually according to the year. Montblanc also chose to incorporate the moon phase display function in this model, which is separated from the setting of the annual calendar function through independent gear train control.
Self-developed moon phase display
   The unique moon phase display function is embedded in the star pattern of the southern hemisphere, which is unique. Southern Cross is easily identifiable, especially the red star named γ in this eye-catching constellation. If you look closely, we will also see the other three stars α, β and δ in the cross, as well as other stars that Portuguese seafarers might see in 1497. In order to show the change of the moon phase, the beautiful blue paint constellation is equipped with a golden rotating dial window, and the moon phase under the night sky is displayed below, which perfectly reproduces the dazzling beauty of the starry sky of the year.

Delicate and elegant case
   Montblanc Heritage Chronograph Annual Calendar Da Gama Diamond Edition features a silver-white dial with a beautifully decorated sun-pattern pattern and appliqué scales. It is set in an 18K rose gold case with a diameter of only 9.5 mm and a diameter of 40 mm. It is set with 72 brilliant models. The bezel lines of the cut diamond are classic and smooth. Slightly turning the wrist, the watch refracts thousands of rays of light, like a bright constellation shining in the night sky, especially like the little star light of the Southern Cross in the Milky Way. Montblanc Heritage Chronograph Annual Calendar Da Gama Diamond Edition is related to the stars, and naturally engraved the ship that was flying by Vasco Da Gama with the help of the Southern Cross star-San Gabriel. In addition, the sapphire crystal window on the back of this new series is also engraved with the flagship’s pattern and the signature of the fearless explorer. Limited to 90 pieces, this watch symbolizes the southernmost point of the 90 ° Southern Cross.
