You can choose between a quartz watch and a mechanical watch, which is a privilege that only women have. If you want to buy a good watch for yourself at a price of 20,000 to 30,000 yuan or less, this is a huge challenge for men, but in women, there are many options, including even diamond-inlaid styles.
Moreover, the grade of quartz watches is not necessarily lower than that of mechanical watches. Up to Patek Philippe, Cartier, Piaget, and Montblanc, they have introduced top-quality quartz women’s watches, which are no less classic than any mechanical women’s watch. Moreover, the quartz watch does not require professional maintenance and does not need to be wound on a regular basis. It is sufficient to replace the battery when wearing it.

Cartier Launches The Latest Watch To Open Up The Future

In the 1940s, the design of the tilt rotor and flying wing concept had already appeared on the drawing board of German designers, although under that single-wing, the last three-point take-off and landing aircraft became mainstream Here, they are often regarded as ‘foreign visitors,’ but today, both designs have been applied to modern aircraft, with the MV-22 Osprey and the B-2 ‘Ghost’ as examples. Let’s go back to the ground. In 1938, the world’s first concept car, the Buick Y Job, was introduced. Electronically controlled folding canopies and windows, flat door handles and horizontal water tank covers, these designs are commonplace today, but Y Job is far beyond its era. Pioneering designs have been imitated, and more modern cars have come into our lives. In 2009, Cartier launched the first ID series concept watch, ID ONE. This avant-garde concept table incorporates a variety of new materials and innovative technologies, achieving no adjustment of the entire life cycle and accurate travel time. This breakthrough caused a huge sensation in the industry. After this, Cartier did not stop the pace of exploration. In July this year, Cartier launched the second-generation forward-looking concept design, which is the world’s first high-performance concept watch-Cartier ID TWO. ID TWO is not a simple single watch. In its 42mm case, it incorporates a large number of advanced technologies. This concept watch is very forward-looking. It can be said that every part of the watch is made of new technology.
    32-day power reserve
   To increase energy storage, improve transmission efficiency, and reduce energy loss, in order to achieve the above three goals, Cartier has comprehensively optimized every detail of the ID TWO concept watch. Compared to traditional watches, ID TWO has 30% more power and 50% less energy consumption. Inside the Calibre de Cartier 42 mm case, the ID TWO concept watch has an amazing 32-day power reserve.

   1 concept-high performance concept
   The transmission system of the traditional mechanical watch from the mainspring to the oscillating mechanism is not perfect, and this type of transmission chain that uses gears to gradually change speed has a large energy loss. According to research, the energy loss of general mechanical watches can reach 75%. The low energy conversion efficiency makes the power storage time of general mechanical watches limited, and some watches with multi-springs can only reach about 10 days of power. The design focus of Cartier ID TWO concept watch is to achieve energy efficient use, and this is the concept of high performance. 1 goal-open source and reduce expenditure
   In layman’s terms, the high-efficiency concept of Cartier ID TWO watches is similar to what we often call ‘open source throttling.’ In order to achieve this goal, Cartier conducts technical public relations from three aspects, one is to maximize energy storage, the other is to maximize the energy transmission efficiency, and the third is to minimize the energy loss of the oscillation system. Through these three efforts, the efficient use of energy is truly achieved. It can be said that all technical applications of the ID TWO concept watch are fully developed around the goal of ‘open source and cost reduction’. 6 technological innovations
   With the concept and the goal, we have to move towards the established direction. As the so-called light-handed style is not practiced, Cartier has fully realized the goal of ‘open source and cost reduction’ of this concept watch through 6 major technological innovations. Let us take a look at the technical highlights of the ID TWO concept watch. Cartier carbon crystal celestial tourbillon is the first watch to be mass-produced according to the ID ONE concept. Among them, the Deep Reactive Ion Etching (DRIE) process and the one-piece escapement system have been applied to the ID ONE concept watch and have been proven reliably, laying the foundation for the mass production of concept technology. It can be seen that conceptual design is a leader and practitioner of scientific and technological progress, and the practical application of conceptual design is not trivial. This watch will be officially announced in 2013 at the International Haute Horlogerie Salon, limited to 50 pieces. I see ID TWO-from a different perspective on efficiency Cartier has applied a lot of new technologies to ID TWO watches, the purpose of which is to maximize the energy efficiency of watches. Friends who have a certain understanding of machinery know that in the field of engines, people’s use of power is also limited. For example, the efficiency of a gasoline engine is usually about 15% to 30%, the efficiency of a diesel engine is 25% to 40%, and the efficiency of a gas turbine can reach more than 35%, but even so, the energy lost is still considerable. On the other hand, traditional watches with multiple barrels also have a power reserve of only about 10 days, and some energy has not been used reasonably. The most direct way to solve the problem of insufficient power of a watch is to increase the number of barrels, but how can the power source be infinitely stacked inside the case with extremely limited space? The important inspiration from the ID TWO concept watch is our focus on efficiency. Under the same energy supply conditions, improving efficiency can do more with less. Some friends may say that using so many new technologies is it worthwhile to improve the efficiency of the watch so much? I think that ID TWO is just a concept watch after all. Its mission is to verify those technologies and designs that can become reality in the future. Any kind of concept design will not be put into practical application at the beginning of its birth, but it The avant-garde design concept will not only become a pioneer into the future, but also broaden the design ideas of traditional watches. In today’s situation where it is difficult to significantly increase the power reserve of a watch, another way of thinking, focusing on improving transmission efficiency and reducing energy consumption, will also play the same role. Perhaps in the future, when people think back to today’s series of concept watches, they have to applaud Cartier’s forward-looking and groundbreaking ideas.

E-strap Smart Bands Make Traditional Watches Smarter

Frederique Constant launched a new high-tech masterpiece at this year’s Baselworld: the E-Strap smartband. Frederique Constant’s E-Strap smart strap is a patented smart buckle and strap specially designed for traditional watches, so our slogan is: make traditional watches smarter. The Frederique Constant E-Strap smartband, created by Frederique Constant, a Swiss watch brand, is a great way to add intelligence to traditional watches. The ultra-small extension buckle makes it difficult to detect its existence, because it is not only thin, but also covered by the original leather strap. Frederique Constant’s E-Strap smartband is based on a complete traditional Swiss smartwatch platform and its sophisticated features. The wearer can use the MMT-365 app with a traditional Swiss smartwatch. The E-Strap smart band is equipped with ‘activity tracking’, ‘smart cycle alarm’ and ‘sleep monitoring’ function to monitor sleep quality. Most importantly, Frederique Constant E-Strap is priced at only HK $ 2,200 to $ 2,400 and includes a fine leather strap with multiple colors. E-Strap will be sold through after-sales service. If customers have this demand, they can send traditional watches to Frederique Constant, and our professionals will replace the E-Strap straps for you.

   The new ‘E-Strap’ is suitable for any traditional watch with a lug width of 20 mm or 22 mm. Frederique Constant and MMT SwissConnect are working together again to bring E-Strap the same smart features as Horological Smartwatch. With the matching MMT-365 application, users can simply use the E-Strap on any traditional quartz watch or self-winding watch, and they can use various intelligent functions at any time.
