 Hermès, a French hand luggage brand with a history of 176 years, after Shanghai, Beijing and Shenyang, today opened the “Festival des Métiers” elegantly on the shore of the beautiful West Lake, showing the Hangzhou public eight exclusive classic crafts . Nine outstanding craftsmen vividly interpreted the essence of Hermès ‘century-old brand, telling the unique ingenuity contained in each piece, leading the audience on the scene to understand Hermès’ exquisite and mysterious handicraft palace and the ultimate state of perfection.

 Entering the ‘Hermes Crafts Ceremony’ exhibition area, you will be greeted by elegant and exquisite workbenches, various delicate needlework, delicate wood hammers, colorful silks … all kinds of tools and materials are in the hands of craftsmen Dancing lightly, the rhythm is in chapters, like a passionate symphony full of vitality, which illustrates Hermès’s endless enthusiasm and eternal pursuit of traditional manual skills.

 As the founding source of Hermès, saddle production has a unique and profound meaning in Hermes’ handicrafts. People often stop in front of the stand, listening to the whisper between the producer and the saddle. Since Hermes opened its first saddle and harness workshop in 1837, careful selection of materials and excellent production have been the keys to its world-renowned success. In order for the saddle to have a strong and delicate texture and elegant luster, to realize the natural fit between humans and horses, the craftsmen need to specialize the selected leather before making each part. The cowhide used only for the saddle wings requires tanning for 8 to 10 months in a container filled with oak bark. The famous ‘saddle needle method’ uses beeswax linen, all reinforced stitching is done by hand, giving the saddle an unparalleled firmness, and also a perfect fusion with leather.

 Keep moving forward, and in front of you is Hermes’ unique leather goods production workbench. ‘Beads round jade run’ and ‘saddle stitch method’, the leather goods division with its own superb skills, with the help of specialized tools, live demonstration of Hermes’s unique handmade skills. From raw hides to finely-crafted clinker, a fur product needs to undergo more than 200 complex and sophisticated processing techniques before it can become gorgeous, refined, and layered leather goods. After tanning, dyeing, and finishing the leather, you need to soften, cut, sew, flip, polish, and bead … Every step of the production process requires the mastery of the craftsman, and all the details of each piece of leather are made by a craftsman himself Do it manually. It is in this way that Hermes leather goods will have a one-piece integrity and a unique personality.

 After admiring the perfection of leather goods production, his eyes couldn’t help but be attracted by the on-site craftsman who clung leather on the wooden frame. He was showing Hermès’ exclusive glove making technology. Every winter Hermès designs 25 gloves, and in summer it adds 15 more, each with 8 to 10 colors, but few people know that a pair of classic Hermes gloves need to go through 22 different production processes. After the initial selection and processing of leather, polishing, and manual cutting and stitching in the later period, a pair of elegant, comfortable, and exquisitely crafted Hermès gloves came into being. Some styles can be as long as the shoulders or exposed fingers, and some styles are designed with freshness. Vibrant stripes, delicate wrinkles or gentle and intricate mesh laces, and some are decorated with studs and jewelry. The artisans confid their warm feelings, show unlimited talents through their hands, and convey Hermès’ unremitting pursuit of a better life.

 A workbench similar to Chinese prints attracted a lot of guests ‘curious eyes. Hermès’ exclusive silk scarf plate making process was presented to people in a black and white world. The dedicated scarf stenciler is shaking hands with the stereotyped pen, meticulously making each template for each color in the scarf pattern, ensuring that each element in the pattern is clear, complete and expressive. A Hermès silk scarf starts from the topic selection and passes the design, color matching, plate making, coloring, and hand-rolling processes. It takes more than 24 months before and after. After the pattern is determined, the craftsmen need to use high patience and a lot of time and painstaking efforts to pattern each color in the silk scarf pattern, and transfer every detail in the pattern to transparent paper to ensure that all colors can It is superimposed on a predetermined position correctly to form a predetermined pattern. It takes about 600 hours to make a single scarf.

 After completing the plate making process, on a huge table that is 100 meters long, the silk scarf printing and dyeing division is working to give each Hermès silk scarf a soul of color. 30 to 45 colors are selected from 75,000 colors and accurate. Color the floor to the prepared silk scarf floor. For each color, it takes 1 hour to 1 month to dry before printing and dyeing the second color. After a series of time-consuming and complicated processes, one party’s dazzling and colorful colors were finally released. After going through this journey of color exploration, audiences who have witnessed such superb skills can not stand by indifferently, but they ca n’t wait to pick up a square scarf and feel the spirit flowing at the fingertips.

 Many men linger on the Hermès tie making workbench. Since the advent of Hermes ‘first tie in 1949, the tie has become another symbol of Hermes’ lifestyle. Every Hermès tie is hand-woven from high-quality silk. Customize a Hermès tie with more than a thousand colors to choose from. Different from other ties, Hermes tie will carefully add a loose line, which makes the tie not only soft and fit, but more importantly, even after wearing it for many times, as long as the loose line is adjusted, the tie can be restored again. In a brand new and shabby state, we will continue to accompany our customers with perfect quality and witness their aging years.

 If saddles and leather goods are witnesses to the 100-year history of Hermès, the excellent watch series is a tribute to this century. The craftsmen carefully fiddled with the watch parts in their hands, making people want to peek into the details of this exquisite craftsmanship. Hermès has broken through the traditional watchmaking concept in watchmaking technology and tried to use advanced technology. The Dressage watch series is one of Hermès special watch series. With its outstanding case design and elegant curves, the Dresseage watch is equipped with the H1837 self-winding movement developed exclusively by Hermès. The movement is hand polished. The main splint of the movement is engraved with fish scales. The automatic tourbillon uses a brushing process and is engraved with a hand-polished exclusive Hermès H pattern decoration. The shiny H marks are closely arranged to outline the original shape of the splint. The cleverness of the new Arceau Grande Lune moon phase watch is that it is a full calendar watch with the function of displaying the day and month: a dark blue moon phase dial machine specially designed at 6 o’clock, rhodium-plated astrology, dial numbers The arrangement and swirl pattern make the entire watch show a mysterious and rich astronomical effect, which greatly enhances the wearer’s enjoyment of appreciation. Such a design that combines exquisite craftsmanship and aesthetics can not help moving, lamenting the timelessness and eternity.

 The first presentation of the knitting and woven stitching process won a warm response once it was displayed. I saw that the splicer skillfully used the fabrics and needles of the fingers to seamlessly connect the knitted cashmere and twill silk on both sides through classic connection technology, so that the knitted cashmere was firmly locked in the middle of the two twill silks. The seams between these fabrics are extremely smooth and regular. Through this unique technique, Hermès uses more stylish and simple elements to mix and match different fabrics with treated silk, while giving women’s ready-to-wear garments, pullovers, sweaters, skirts and other new shapes. , Further enhance the quality of clothing, enhance the comfort when wearing, has become a time-honored fashion benchmark.

 In order to better convey Hermès’ admiration and insistence on pure handicrafts to the audience, this event specially set up a public open day link, the visit time is from November 8, 2013 to November 12, 2013, 11: 00-19 : 00 (in the atrium of Hangzhou Lakeside Yintai Phase I). At the same time, the film documentary ‘Hearts and Crafts’, which deeply describes the essence of Hermès craftsmanship, will also be screened in the exhibition hall on the third floor of the Hermès Intime boutique during the same period.

 The ‘Hermes Crafts Ceremony’ is like a supreme tour of the highest quality and artistic life. In this mini workshop, Hermès deeply interprets its diligent pursuit of perfection and detail with classic skills, and pays tribute to the persistence and bold innovation of generations of craftsmen. The profound and ingenious craftsmanship and the profound heritage of a century of heritage make Hermes more elegant and charming under the baptism of time.

Omega Introduces New ‘first Omega Into Space’ Numbered Chronometer

In 1962, astronaut Walter Schirra wore a Speedmaster into space while performing the Mercury-Hercules 8 mission. On October 3, with the launch vehicle rushing into the clear blue sky, the legendary history of Omega’s iconic Speedmaster Chronometer exploring space began. In fact, only two and a half years later, the Speedmaster was certified by NASA as ‘competent for all manned space flight missions.’
   Now, to commemorate the pioneering initiative of Walter Scheira and the historic moment when the first Speedmaster entered space, Omega has launched a new ‘first Omega into space’ numbered chronograph. This watch inherits the classic design of the Speedmaster. The case is made of 18K Sedna ™ gold, with symmetrical lugs, and the case is engraved with the 1962 hippocampus emblem.
   The brown polished ceramic bezel ring with matte chrome nitride tachymeter scale is quite unique. The PVD sub-dial and minute scale are also brown-colored and surround the silver-white center dial. The 18K Sedna ™ gold hour and minute hands incorporate Alpha and Baton hands, and the applied hour markers indicate time information.
   Similar to the famous moon watch, this watch is equipped with an Omega 1861 manual winding mechanical movement. In addition to the hippocampus emblem, the bottom of the case is engraved with the words ‘THE FIRST OMEGA IN SPACE’ and ‘OCTOBER 3, 1962’ (October 3, 1962). Omega’s new ‘First Omega into Space’ numbered chronograph has a brown leather strap with beige silk stitching.

Teardown, The World’s Thinnest Automatic Chronograph

Today, I want to talk about a very beefy watch, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT is the world’s thinnest automatic chronograph, breaking the world record. Someone has disassembled this watch abroad, and we can take a look at how the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT is the thinnest in the world.

The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT is the thinnest automatic chronograph in the world.
Before I start, I want to highlight a few points about the Bulgari OCTO:
 1. Bulgari belongs to the LVMH group, and is a brother brand with Tag Heuer, Zenith, and Hublot. In addition, Bulgari has successively acquired independent watchmaking brands such as Jero Zunda and DANIEL ROTH. In terms of watchmaking, it has very strong technical strength.
 2. Bulgari’s main men’s watch series OCTO was designed by Master Jero Zunda. Jero Zunda has designed famous watches such as Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Philippe Nautilus, IWC Engineers, and Omega Constellation. Master’s hand, the octagonal appearance recognition is very high.
 3. Bulgari is one of the three major jewelry brands in the world. Like Cartier, Bulgari is very strong in watches and jewelry.

The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph, with a thickness of 6.9 mm, is currently the thinnest automatic chronograph.
Teardown of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT.
 Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph is the world’s thinnest automatic chronograph launched in 2019 by Bulgari. The watch is 6.9 mm thick and the BVL 318 automatic chronograph movement is 3.3 mm thick. For example, the thickness of the entire Bvlgari watch is about the same as that of the Rolex 3135 (calibre 3135 is 6 mm thick), and the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT is an automatic chronograph. Hour function, power 55 hours. Titanium case, price 142000.

The Bulgari OCTO series was designed by Jero Zunda.
 The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT has a Bulgari signature octagonal case with a round bezel. The timing button on the right side of the case is symmetrical to the two-time button on the left side of the case and blends into the shape of the entire watch, which is very clever in design. At 3 o’clock on the dial of the watch, there are two-time hands, 6 o’clock is a 30-minute chronograph, and 9 o’clock is a small second hand.

The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph uses a self-torque edge, which has no obstruction to the movement and reduces its thickness.
 Looking at the back of the watch, we can see that the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph uses an edge automatic rotor, which is located on the outer ring of the movement. While reducing the thickness of the movement, it has no obstruction to the movement and is very beautiful. From the figure we can see that after separating the case and the bezel, there is a circle of ‘rubber ring’ under the bezel, which is the waterproof rubber ring of the case.

We can see that after removing the bezel, the waterproof rubber ring in the case.
 Take out the movement, we can see the front and back of the movement intuitively. On the dial side of the movement, all the movement splints are decorated with pearl patterns. At the same time, we can also see that on the front of the movement, there is a very long curved lever. This is the lever that controls the function of the two places. When the two-time button (9 o’clock case) is pressed, this lever will push the two-time gear to adjust the time in the second time zone.

Function lever on both the front of the movement and the front of the movement.
 The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph uses an edge automatic rotor. We can see that there is a platinum bar weight on the ring of the edge automatic rotor. At the same time, there is a ring of teeth on the inside of the ring. During the rotation, the movement is wound through the teeth and the self-winding gear with the edge of the core. This is the principle of the automaton.

Bulgari edge automata structure.
 The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph uses a straddle balance wheel splint. The balance wheel is a ‘light pendulum’. The balance spring is adjusted using the fast and slow hands. The swing frequency is 28800. From the picture, after removing the balance wheel and balance plate, you can gradually see the key part of this watch, the timing mechanism.

The balance part of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT.
 We can see that the timing mechanism of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT uses a combination of a cylindrical wheel and a horizontal clutch. The combination of a cylindrical wheel and a horizontal clutch is the most traditional technical combination in a chronograph. Many modern chronographs use vertical clutches, but in order to reduce the thickness, Bulgari chooses horizontal clutches and thins parts in traditional technology.

The chronograph mechanism of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT uses a cylindrical wheel and a horizontal clutch.
 However, it is worth noting that despite the thinning, Bvlgari has not made any concessions on the key timing mechanism, and uses very large and sturdy parts. We can see that both the horizontal clutch clutch gear lever and the lever connected to the cylindrical wheel to control the start / stop / zero of the chronograph are very stout. It can also be seen that the ultra-thin watches are all “reinforced” on the core functional components.

The core timing components of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT are very stout.
 After removing the timing part, it is the main splint of the movement. At the same time, we can also see that the layer of the timing wheel is very thin. The main splint is the most basic timekeeping gear of the watch, including mainspring, second wheel, third wheel, second wheel, escapement wheel and so on. On the main splint, it can be seen that there are pearl patterns on the balance wheel and escapement wheel. The rest is covered by an upper splint, which is decorated with Geneva stripes.

The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph removes the timing wheel train.
 By dissecting the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT chronograph movement, it can be found that most of the movements use traditional constructions, which are not fundamentally different from traditional chronograph movements. But Bvlgari incorporated the edge automatic rotor into the chronograph movement, which greatly reduced the thickness of this watch, becoming the thinnest automatic chronograph in the world. In addition to Bulgari, like the Breguet’s 5377 ultra-thin self-winding tourbillon, Piaget’s 910P ultra-thin watches use edge automatic tourbillons to reduce the thickness of the watch. In recent years, Bulgari and Earl have competed fiercely in the ultra-thin field, and the court has resisted. Among them, the world’s thinnest manual chronograph is Piaget 883P, and the world’s thinnest automatic chronograph is Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT.

Parts of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT.
 Because Bulgari and Piaget both make jewelry, some players who are new to the world of watchmaking often regard them as pure ‘jewellery’ brands. In fact, each major brand has its own unique style and technology, each with its own strengths.

Longines Pulse Chronograph A Subtle Combination Of Elegance And Function

Longines, a famous Swiss watch manufacturer, pays tribute to its long-standing watchmaking tradition and injects new vitality into the brand’s antique timepieces. The Longines Pulse Chronograph cleverly combines elegance and function, giving the pulsometer scale its outstanding design, making this simple and exquisite one-button chronograph capable of measuring heart rate.

  Inspired by a medical watch from the 1920s, Longines Pulse Chronograph can measure heart rate while displaying time. The prototype of this replica was used as a medical instrument for medical staff at the time, which could quickly and accurately measure the heart rate of patients.

  At that time, medical personnel generally obtained heart rate data by accurately counting the number of pulse beats of a patient in 60 seconds. However, this measurement method is not completely accurate. The advent of pulse chronographs has greatly reduced the error in measuring heart rate, and has provided medical personnel with a fast and accurate measurement method. The results are simple and clear. The heart rate measurement is the pulsometer scale to which the chronograph hand points after 30 pulse beats.

  The Longines Pulse Chronograph inherits its prototype, highlighting its simplicity and elegance. The white lacquered dial is decorated with black lacquered Arabic numerals, subtly reflecting the Breguet blue-steel hands, and the red pulsometer scale is subtly presented on the dial. This watch is equipped with a stainless steel case with a diameter of 40 mm. Longines’ exclusive column wheel movement details are clearly visible through the transparent case back, showing the superb craftsmanship of watchmakers. The brown leather strap gives the watch a more harmonious look.

Changing The Bracelet Fashion Watch Jumps Up

Just ask the people around ‘What time is it?’ Presumably more than half of them will pull out their mobile phones. So what else can a watch do? Top watches are status symbols, and fashion watches can be used to match different lines. If you care more about its external beauty, then the most suitable choice in front of you is undoubtedly the fashion watch.

 Jewelry tendency

 First of all, most fashion watches are not expensive, and they won’t let you look like you can see Patek Philippe, Piaget and other famous watches. And it can be understood literally: a watch designed to match fashion. Compared with luxury watches, fashion watches have a strong tendency to jewellery. You can understand it as an accessory, a bracelet or a bracelet.

 Generally speaking, fashion watches don’t pay much attention to the movement, so the functions are relatively simple. Most of them are quartz watches, and more movements are used in Japan. They look quite luxurious, even pearly. Most of them use artificial diamonds, so the price is relatively cheap.

 Entry-level tide table

 In the eyes of luxurious ‘cousins’ and ‘cousins’, most fashion watches will be despised. But in fact, this type of watch is more in line with the appetite of most consumers. The total turnover of fashion watches as accessories must be greater than traditional watchmaking.

 Design wins

 How to choose a table? If you use it for fashion, don’t spend money on jewelry; if you use it for taste, buy a home-made movement. Since it is a fashion watch, beautiful appearance is the most important.

 ‘Hong Kong Design Gallery’ is a good choice for the sale of family watches. The price is between one and two thousand, which is much lower than that of similar fashion brands. There are quite a few big-name models. light. There are 40 styles of Wuhan counters. Sega Watch has a strong design team, with an annual output of 4 million pieces.

 For CK, the underwear series has always been more common in China. In fact, CK’s watches are also very good. They are based on the concept of simplicity and fashion, and the price is around 2,000 yuan. Compared with CK, GUESS watches are more fashionable and will be dazzling and colorful. The purchase crowd is mostly young women. The fashion accessory brand AGATHA from France is very decorative, and its watch is more like a piece of jewelry.

 Luxury brands also love fashion watches

 Luxury brands are paying more and more attention to the watch market. Even if you have not paid special attention to the watch industry, you will find that someone around you bought a GUCCI or Hermès watch. Compared to these brands of leather bags, the price of the watch is already quite close to the people. Many of GUCCI’s famous bamboo watches are only four digits. In addition, I am afraid you can’t think of the price of Hermes double-circle watches is only about 20,000-and this price can not buy an entry-level Omega watch. In addition, Burberry British fashion watches are also unique.

Basel Watch Show Basel 2019: Retro Tudor Tudor Black Bay P01

Baselworld TUDOR in 2019 is still the popular series of the Black Bay brand in recent years. The Black Bay P01 is very curious regardless of its name or appearance. Although it looks close to BB, it is One thing is not so BB. The original reason is that the brand has taken inspiration from the past history, combined with the design characteristics of antique watches, this new Black Bay has transformed its own personality.

Tudor was inspired by the prototype of the military diving watch designed for the US Navy in 1967, and introduced the new work of Black Bay P01. The special case shape exudes a strong retro military watch atmosphere.

Having said that, back in the middle of the twentieth century, Tudor was favored by the U.S. Navy to help the military to provide special diving watches. Later, in 1967, Tudor’s technology for developing diving watches became more and more mature, so there was a major renovation-of course, this upgrade It fully meets the requirements of the US military for military watches, and also improves the performance of watches and related ergonomic design.

Although the face plate is consistent with other models in the Black Bay series, the crown position and case shape of the watch are different from those of the same series, showing the aesthetics from the early watch design.

The Black Bay P01 this time was inspired by the Prototype diving watch designed by Tudor that year, so it can be seen from the appearance that it looks very unusual, including its crown set at 4 o’clock, and the case lug connection The particularly large pieces, together with the case and lugs extending out of the hinged end link (this is a common watch design in the 1960s), etc., make this watch look full of retro-style innovation. Considering that it was born for military needs, this design has a small egg. The hinged end link at 12 o’clock is actually movable, and the wearer can pry it open. What do you mean? This is to be used with the rotating bezel of the diving watch. The bezel is usually locked. It can only be turned after opening the hinged end link. Once the wearer seizes the link back, the bezel is in a fixed state. In simple terms, it is a device to prevent accidental contact. This is a bit different from the foolproof design of the rotating bezel of modern diving watches, which shows another creative thinking.

The hinged end link of the case at 12 o’clock has the function of bezel locking. The bezel can rotate in both directions only after the wearer opens the link, preventing the bezel from being touched by mistake.

The diameter of the Black Bay P01 is actually 42mm, but because its case, lugs, and end links are too hot, the face plate is relatively not as big as 42mm in the impression (just an illusion after comparison) The faceplate layout still maintains the elements of the Black Bay series, such as inverted triangles and round hour markers, snowflake hands, etc. In addition, the black faceplate is also a common color of Tudor. It is possible to highlight the retro texture, so the luminous of the watch The material is a bit beige, and the watch looks like it has been baptized for a little time, in line with the overall Tone tone. The MT5612 movement equipped with the watch has a junior hand and date function. Tudor’s self-made movement has continued to build reputation since its launch. This movement has passed C.O.S.C. certification, which can ensure the watch has a level of accuracy above the time.
