Ten Concept Watches Challenge Future Watchmaking Techniques

Over the past thousands of years, we have relied on complicated machinery and even the orientation of the sun to roughly estimate time. European watchmakers have spent centuries to make intricate devices Enables timing to microseconds. The ten concept watches selected in this article are all using the most advanced technology in the field of chronology, so that the future ‘key of time’ is in the hands of today.

1, MB & F Thunderbolt

Maximilian Büsser or Steve Jobs (Stephen Jobs) which can be equated with watchmaking. There is no intention to offend the latter, and we believe Jobs will be proud of it. Büsser and his workmates are happy to develop outer space designs and exceptionally precise technology, with the intention of revolutionizing the world of luxury watches. MB & F Thunderbol t is one of their most outstanding masterpieces. It is a watch with extraordinary complexity. Its design inspiration comes from the aircraft model structure that the designer was passionate about as a child. A pair of conical cylinders is reminiscent of a medieval twin-engine design, one of which is used to display time and the other is used as a power reserve for a watch. This watch reveals MB & F’s courage to break the stereotypes, pioneer and innovate, and stand alone.

2, Hublot La Clé Du Temps

宇 Compared to the vintage-style MB & F watch mentioned above or other watches to be mentioned next, Hublot La Clé Du Temps watches show a more futuristic side. From color matching to design ideas, La Clé Du Temps is more like a watch that travels from time to time back to the present. La Clé Du Temps means “the key to time”, revealing the unique functionality of this watch. It has a ‘end time’ system, and the time will end abruptly at the push of a button. Of course, this does not mean that it can make the space and time around us stand still. Its intention is to remind the wearer to stop the hurried steps in life to review and reflect on the elapsed time. The moment the button is pressed, the watch stops at the moment.

3, Pininfarina Bovet Ottana Tourbillon Tourbillon

The relationship between handmade watches and luxury cars is very close, which is particularly prominent in the Pininfarina Bovet Ottana Tourbillo tourbillon watch. Its styling design comes from Pininfarina, a luxury car design company. Specially designed cars for Mercedes, Ferrari, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, etc. The company’s collaboration with Bovet watches showcases the sophisticated and sophisticated engineering of luxury cars, which are equally applicable to timepieces. The innovativeness of this pocket watch is among the best in its class, and the subtle mechanical structure under the transparent case makes the wearer shine.

4. Jaeger Le Coultre Atmos Clock 566

Strictly speaking, Jaeger Le Coultre Atmos Clock 566 air clock is not a watch, but it undoubtedly has a beautiful appearance. This aerospace-inspired timepiece was developed to pay tribute to another 83-year-old clock of the same brand, expressing a continuity of the old brand. A new movement, the LeCoultre 566 Calibre, is housed in the Baccarat crystal case of the air clock. At the center of the clock is a slightly smaller concentric circle. The image of the starry sky is outlined in the circle, and the sky is displayed to the user. Because the complex mechanical rotor is built in, the sky orientation and time display are easy to read

5, Urwerk U-110 Torpedo Watch

The Urwerk U-110 Torpedo watch is as complicated as its appearance. It uses a new display method, including intricate moving parts. These small parts display time through unusual combinations. Each individual hand on the watch rotates to indicate the hours, minutes and other information. The mechanical principle of this watch is relatively advanced, but it is easy to use in terms of operation. Its instructions are distinctive and impressive

6. Parmigiani’s Bugatti Super Sport watch

Yep, that’s Bugatti! The company that produced many of the world’s fastest and most expensive automotive products has extended its tentacles to the field of watches. The Bugatti Super Sport by Parmigiani is the ideal add-on for Bugatti owners. I am afraid that only these owners can afford the watch. Maybe it doesn’t have a speed of 267 mph, but you have to pay $ 259,000 if you want to own it.

7, Knot 0hundred watch

Another successful example of the fusion of car and watch design is the Knot 0hundred watch, a timeless and futuristic time-hopping watch based on complex mechanical principles, designed and designed by Nicholas DiLoreto and Kort Neumann , With crisp and clean lines, modern design and complex functions. The outer dial indicates hours, the inner dial indicates minutes, and the central dial indicates seconds. Each number scrolls through the slot on the left in turn to show the time of preparation. Wearing such a watch is not just to check the time, it shows a sense of design and fashion that other watches do not have.

8. HD3 Complication Black Pearl

Wearing HD3 Complication Black Pearl is like wearing a vending machine on your wrist. The hour scale is displayed on the left-hand wheel, and the minutes are displayed in the upper center disc. The time display is not the most attractive part of this watch, but the complex mechanical device loaded inside. It is driven by an anti-gravity biaxial tourbillon, and the visible tourbillon is installed at the bottom center of the dial. The design of this watch is inspired by the era of pirates. The color scheme is mainly blood red and black, and the pirate flag is painted on the back as decoration. Hundreds of moving parts make up such a watch, which is definitely the rare wrist jewelry in the world.

9. Geocentric watch by Geoffrey Cooper

Three concentric circles make up this Geocentric watch designed by Geoffrey Cooper, an unprecedented style full of seductiveness. In the outermost circle marked with a 12-hour scale, two concentric circles show minutes and seconds. The white polyesteramine material makes up the edge of the dial and the back of the strap and case. The internal mechanism is exposed on the dial, and the moving parts that drive the hands to indicate the time are clearly visible, giving it a unique sense of fashion.

10. Devon Works Tread 1

The Devon Works Tread 1 is the most controversial and avant-garde of these 10 watches. It has a visually stunning appearance and uses stunning technology. Inside the Tread 1 Watch are four two-micron-thick conveyor belts that intertwine to show time. It relies on wirelessly-charged lithium-polymer batteries. This power system drives the conveyor belt in sync with an optoelectronic technology. Together, these elements give this watch the most advanced technology and the most seductive look. Devon Works Tread 1 is designed and manufactured by a California aerospace company and is comfortable to wear. It is the best example of superior technology.
