Its design is extremely precise, and the watch only needs one day of correction after 1058 years of operation. Deep blue solid 18K gold celestial discs, set with 2116 glittering stars with precise technology, are fascinating. The famous Nebra horoscope was unearthed less than 200 kilometers outside the town of Glashütti a few years ago, and has since found more treasures nearby. The discovery was a sensation. The Nebra astrological disk, made 3600 years ago in central Europe, is by far the oldest manifestation of the universe. Mysterious patterns show the origin of human recorded time.

‘Terraluna’ in front of the Nebra astrological chart

The producer of the Nebra astrological plate is no longer available. He just assembled several gold-made inset scales on a bronze plate with a diameter of 32 cm. accurate. The focus of the astrological disk lies on the full moon and crescent moon with 32 stars. The seven stars gathered between the two moons are the symbol of the Pleiades cluster. These stars will disappear in the night sky in March and reappear in the morning sky in October, representing the time of spring sowing and autumn harvest. These are the two most important moments in the agricultural calendar. The arc at the edge of the astrological disk also has a calendar function. The summer solstice can be determined when the astrological disk is aligned with its discovery location, the sunset at Mittelberg near Nebra and pointing towards the Brocken Mountain, the peak of the Harz mountain, about 85 kilometers away. The date of the winter solstice.

Gucci 2014 New Watch Debut In Taiwan

Last year, Gucci relied on the movement provided by Girard Perregaux to create a high-end men’s diving watch, and launched the first shot for the brand to enter the field of advanced watches. The Handmaster series is Gucci’s second fine watch. On the other hand, the brand has also added many wonderful works to the existing entry styles, including the thin G-Timeless Slim series men’s watch, Interlocking large-scale dark gray PVD watch, reduced-size G-Chrono ceramic watch, etc. And the newly added Horsebit women’s watch series of women’s watches, just the right size, elegant and pleasant appearance, showcasing Gucci’s decorative style, once again caught the attention of ladies.

 A few days ago, Gucci introduced the 2014 new watch to Taiwan, and invited Ruisha and Chen Chuxiang to explain the new look of Gucci men and women, and new models will be listed in Taiwan soon.

 Inspired by the equestrian movement of Florence’s high society, Gucci launched the Moccasin men’s shoes with horsebit chain decoration in 1953, which surprised many celebrities. Later, Gucci used horsebit chain elements in a large number, leather goods, jewelry It can be seen even on sunglasses, and the horse title chain is undoubtedly one of the symbolic features of Gucci.

 This year Gucci launched the new Horsebit women’s watch series with the horse title chain as an element. This is not the first time Gucci has put a horsebit chain style on a watch, but the new Horsebit series has more ingenious feminine elements, including 28mm fine size, soft and smooth case curves, like a bracelet Ornament-like appearance, some models with mother-of-pearl and diamond decoration, more bezel-set diamond watch style, to meet the different needs of women.

 In recent years, Gucci has continued to write more on mechanical watches to meet the different needs of consumers. The G-Timeless Slim series men’s watch launched this year is the focus of this new work. The three new G-Timeless Slim models retain the streamlined shape of this series, equipped with an ETA 2895 self-winding movement, with a diameter of 40mm and a full watch thickness of 9mm. The appearance of the watch has Gucci classic features, including the dial The diamond pattern on the top, and the double G Logo on the back of the leather strap.

It is suitable for women or men with thin wrists. The case is made of ceramic and stainless steel, and the G-shaped frame is the key feature of this watch. In addition, the chronograph push button part is also ingenious, and the thickened end is more convenient for operation. But overall, the addition of the G-frame makes this watch a bit thick.

 In addition, Gucci launched the 44mm style on the G-Chrono series. Not only has the size been increased, the central decoration on the dial has been changed to a vertical guilloché pattern, which makes the style more straightforward; as for the case, PVD gold and black contrast , Both sporty and fashionable.

Chinese Red Is Too Rustic? Ma Sichun And Xin Yanlei Were The First Not To Agree

Chinese Lunar New Year is approaching. Although the annual Chinese limit introduced by big names every year makes people ‘can’t laugh out’, I don’t know what their definition of ‘Chinese Year’ is, but from a while ago Looking at the limited edition of the Year of the Dog introduced by the big names, ‘Chinese Red’ has become a major element of big names’ interpretation of the Chinese Year. But are you really serious?

Swatch this year’s limited edition of the Year of the Dog, emmm …

Givenchy’s ‘two-kick’ lambskin lipstick is very ‘traditional Chinese year’.

I’m used to the cute Armani Highlight Powder.
 In fact, behind the overflowing Chinese Red, there are traditional Chinese people’s good wishes for the new year. The Chinese Red can bring people luck and ward off evil spirits. Do not believe if this year’s friends in this Chinese New Year have secretly How many red underwears are ready?

(Are you not prepared? Don’t worry, your mother must have prepared for you …)

 But some people have to say that red is so earthy, especially the red that is linked to the Spring Festival. NONONO, friend, if you think so, then you are very wrong. Studies have shown that red is the color that attracts the eye most, and more research shows that red is the color that can most stimulate the secretion of human male hormones. Whether in a woman’s wardrobe or on a makeup table, you can see red figures. Even the favorite ‘native color’ of female stars is not red. How to get rid of the rustic and become a red high-level player, Ma Sichun and Xin Yilei teach you to play ‘Chinese Red’.

 Ma’s generous personality in the variety show has undoubtedly made her a lot of fans. From ‘July and Anson’ to ‘Generals Up’, Ma Sichun brought us a lot of surprises outside the show. . In the television program ‘Sound Immerse’ some time ago, we also watched Mr. Ma’s broadcasting background. Netizens joked that ‘Ma Sichun was the host who was delayed by acting’.

 From Ma Sichun’s private service photos and publicity photos, we found that the secret to make Ma Sichun beautiful is actually red! Regardless of whether a large area of ​​red is used as the main color or a small area of ​​red is used as the embellishment, Ma Sichun teaches us that the secret of crushing others to become a highlight during the Spring Festival is red!

 The red plaid skirt makes the large area of ​​modern red less monotonous and layered. With a simple white shirt, Ma Sichun’s waist line is not only beautiful. In the choice of makeup, Ma Sichun focused on red lips, which made the overall look more coordinated.

 It is also a red single product. When Ma Sichun shot a magazine blockbuster with Chen Weiting some time ago, the red coat on her upper body made her look brighter under the lens. Large aperture close-ups actually need more intense colors to control, but after placing the red focus on the upper body, we can see that the obvious change in makeup is a bit lighter, and proper subtraction can actually add points.
Small tips: a large area of ​​red mines

 Don’t assume that everyone can hold the red, such a dress is actually more suitable when shooting blockbusters. In daily life, others in red are afraid to think you are wearing a red autumn clothes to go out.

Ma Sichun
 The correct way is to choose a red plaid top or a more layered red according to the way of wearing the pony’s personal clothing, and properly expose the skin to prevent others from thinking that you are wearing autumn clothes.

 If you have to choose a large area of ​​pure red, you can add a coat to enhance the overall level.

 Or different materials of red, lace dress and red silk coat, to ensure that you are the brightest one in the crowd.

 According to Ma Sichun’s red dress style, we summarized a rule: proper skin exposure, multi-level application when large areas are used, and remember to use red as an echo in makeup! The other senior face in the entertainment industry, actor Xin Yilei, is known by more and more people for her superb acting skills and exquisite high-end faces, and her cheats that make her even more cool are actually red.

Actor Xin Yanlei


 Being able to control red is so advanced and cool, I think Xin Yinglei is one of the few actresses. Xin Yilei, who struck under the red dress, perfectly interpreted the style and the cold.

Compared with wearing a white skirt and blue Yingying next to him, Xin Yinglei who was wearing a red skirt was even more eye-catching.

 If you don’t want to choose a large area of ​​red, the red in a small area is now one of Xin Yilei’s choices. Red high heels or red lips are her choices in daily life. I don’t want to be too eye-catching during the Spring Festival, but also want to have some festive atmosphere, this is a good way. Ma Sichun and Xin Yilei also chose the Cartier Blue Balloon Watch China Red Limited Edition.

 The Chinese New Year red items that Ma Sichun, Xin Xielei, Xun Liya, Zhang Tianai, and Song Zuer have chosen are Cartier blue balloon watches specially designed for China.
 The rich red color blends the enthusiasm of love with the auspiciousness of the Chinese New Year, and is endowed with a profound and profound meaning. Cartier witnessed this beloved moment of ‘red’ luck with a limited edition blue balloon red watch exclusively sold in China. With ‘Chinese Red’ as the design inspiration, combined with the extraordinary meaning of red, fuse red into every detail. The overall use of red as the main color, with a stainless steel case, the crown inherited the iconic design of the Cartier blue balloon series, more prominent femininity.

Born in 2007, the Cartier Blue Balloon watch series has become a timeless classic witness with its round and exquisite shape. In 2018, Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve intimately work together to inject a passionate and delicate declaration of love like a rose into the Ballon Bleu de Cartier Cartier Blue Balloon Watch.

 The pleasing red color not only symbolizes the enthusiasm of love, but also conveys the joy of reunion. Love, turned into a red alligator leather strap, wrapped around the lover’s wrist; convex round spinel inlaid in the grooved crown, elegant and quiet; red sunlight rays decorated dial Ambilight, such as gorgeous The red rose witnesses the moment of happiness and joy; the silver-shaped sword-shaped pointer accurately records the eternal declaration of love and touches the heartbeat of love.

Parmigiani’s Repair Tradition

‘Repairing a collection of watches and clocks is a rare and wonderful experience. That is to liberate it from the traces of time and artificial wear and tear, and to reproduce it in a moment worthy of our memory.’ — m Michel Parmigiani Even now, it is rare to find antique artisanal aids in the restoration of watches. Master the secrets, and you will be able to travel in the industry. For Parmigiani, the restoration of antique watches has always been the soul of the brand. Decisive encounter
    In addition to thirty years of constant enthusiasm, restoration work is not only regarded by Parmigiani as a series of searching for future craftsmanship for precious heritage, but also a series of decisive encounters: the brainchild of the talented watchmakers of the past And meeting with outstanding private collectors who are passionate about antique watches and clocks. In the late 1970s, Ephrem Jobin, a prominent collector in Basel, Switzerland, and the first head of the Château des Monts clock museum, entrusted him with many great collections because of his talent for repairing clocks. Recognizing the important historical significance of these restorations, Michel Parmigiani conceived a unique set of principles in his pursuit of perfection: to achieve a certain balance between improving mechanical functions and preserving previous craftsmanship. This persistence allowed Ephrem Jobin to retire and decided to give him the responsibility to repair a series of Maurice-Yves Sandoz collections. This was a great opportunity for Michelle Parmigiani to come into contact with the priceless treasures of history, and at the same time met Pierre Landolt, the president of the Sandos Family Foundation. The partnership thus established foresaw a new watch legend in the 1980s , The birth of the Parmigiani brand in 1996. Several important results of the Parmigiani Restoration Workshop
1986 ‘Cueillette des cerises’ pocket watch. 350 hours. Maurice-Yves Sandoz collection.
1990 Breguet Sympathique pendulum clock. 2000 hours. Patek Philippe Museum.
1998 François Ducommun’s astronomical pendulum. 1500 hours. Castello Sforzesco in Milan.

2007 Faso’s Yousoupoff egg. Maurice-Yves Sandoz collection. 2009 Fabergé’s peacock egg. Maurice-Yves Sandoz collection.
    Partner Museums: Château des Monts Clock Museum, Le Locle (Contributing Restorer); Patek Philippe Museum, Geneva (antique collections only); Time Museum, Rockford, Illinois (now closed); Museum of Decorative Arts, Paris; Castello Sforzesco, Milan; Palazzo Falson, Malta Islands.
The collection, despite its restoration, must remain true to its past
Parmigiani’s Persistence: The courage to face history.
    The establishment of a workshop dedicated to restoring antique collections in contemporary fine watchmaking factories is a unique initiative, and it also highlights how the spirit of the pursuit of excellence has deeply influenced the watchmakers of Parmigiani.
Start investigation
    For the restoration of the treasures passed down by the watchmakers’ predecessors to this day, they must follow their methods and traditions. Before you really get in touch with antique clocks, the indispensable preparation is to gain a deep understanding of these masterpieces through a series of data collection and research. Such collections usually do not have any signatures, and are unique works that require the restorer to browse the group books, visit various museums, look for specific documents that can explain a certain mechanical function, or even play the role of ‘Holmes’ to interpret Traces of disappearing gears. That’s it, before you start dismantling, the repairer must spend a considerable amount of time to carefully observe it and pull it away.
Immerse yourself in a glorious tradition
   The restorer must be unconditionally immersed in the craftsmanship of the predecessors, in order to faithfully reproduce it in the mindfulness of the mind. To do this, he must be proficient in various related techniques, such as gold and silver craftsmanship, enamel glazing, engraving, hollowing out, gold plating or glass making techniques.
    The time-consuming and extremely patient cleaning and maintenance work depends on the preservation status of the collection.
    The oxidation of the components is considerable and often hinders the good operation of the movement. Therefore, careful ‘derusting’ and polishing processes are necessary, and the ‘Perrin Frères’ pocket watch is just one example. The gongs, tongues, tongues, star wheels, gears, springs, and adjustment mechanisms must completely remove rust. Sometimes the restorer evaluates that instead of remaking, it is better to try to keep the main parts of the institution. An example is the leather bellows of the Rochat brothers’ timepiece. The original bellows occasionally had air leakage, which affected the sound quality of the bird’s timepiece. The air supply duct between the bellows and the mouthpiece is thus sealed. Not long ago, Parmigiani helped Fabergé’s peacock egg to complete a fairly precise repair work, so that the mechanical bird can work in coordination again; the peacock swings his feet slowly, and spreads his wings to open the screen in the circle. The unnoticed repair traces on its enamel surface also add unexpected brilliance to it.
One pair after another, each feather has been carefully adjusted.
Repair and restore
   The worst damage that time can bring is often far less than a careless pair of hands.
    When the restoration work is carried out, the most important thing for Parmigiani is to ensure the ‘reversibility’ of each process, maintain the original appearance of the collection and avoid any changes. Therefore, all processes are thoroughly recorded with a complete picture and text, and the exact part of the repair is marked.
    Taking the ‘La Cueillette des cerises’ pocket watch as an example, the improper repair actions of the predecessors have left scars that are difficult to erase. Several mechanism parts were randomly changed and soldered, which caused the steel to undergo irreversible oxidation.
   The Yousoupoff egg pendulum clock by Carl Fabergé’s workshop is another living example. With the help of computer 3D drawing, some of them bear the ‘Hy Moser & Co’ logo, and although they are damaged, they still retain the original institution’s collection to restore the original state. Among them are winding gears, winding ratchets and clockwork spindles, which must be completely remade.
Tonda Hémisphères dual time zone watch 2007 new modern perspective
    Because Parmigiani’s repairmen have experienced the baptism of all complex functions over the past 500 years, the secrets of the brand’s appreciation are few in the industry. In fact, integrating complex functions into the needs of today’s era is exactly what Parmigiani is passionate about. Parmigiani’s innovative Tonda Hémisphères dual time zone watch provides a complete second time zone hour and minute display. It is extremely convenient to use and can be set or adjusted individually. The time difference of many travel destinations is different from the synchronized GMT, which is actually half an hour or three quarters of an hour; with the birth of this watch, it finally found a reference standard.

Dual time zone pocket watch, 1870
    There are two time indications on the dial, distinguished by Roman numerals and Arabic numerals, and controlled by two movements mounted on the same splint. The winding method is to rotate the crown clockwise or counterclockwise, each of which can wind up different movements.

Le Chat et la Souris pendulum clock 2010 The tradition returns.
    To pay tribute to the remarkable talents of renowned animal sculptor and watercolor painter Edouard-Marcel Sandoz, Parmigiani created an extraordinary masterpiece called ‘Le Chat et la Souris’. Parmigiani used solid agate to create a kitten that was about to smash at its prey, and used it to interpret the rich vitality of Sandoz’s work. Its slender geometric lines are reminiscent of Art Nouveau. The mechanism of the small pendulum clock drives the kitten to circulate in a circle, which is one hour. Every time a kitten meets a platinum-encrusted mouse, the latter jumps away and keeps playing with it. To make the design more interesting, the spacing between each mouse escape is slightly irregular. It takes 60 minutes for the kitten to circle horizontally, and a single cat’s claw outstretching represents an hour. This is a tribute to the wonderful tradition of mechanical dolls of the eighteenth century, when the sole purpose of the artisans was to bring joy to the audience.

Yousoupoff Egg 1907
    This enamel pendulum clock is made at the Carl Fabergé workshop in St. Petersburg. Like many other craftsmen’s works, the eggshell is used to install a watch movement, and this work is made by Henry Moser. The time on the enamel dial shows a rather rare one: the Roman numeral four is represented by ‘IV’ instead of the traditional ‘IIII’.

Fibonacci watch 1996 The survival of craftsmanship.
    To commemorate one of the greatest mathematicians of the Middle Ages, that is, to introduce the Arabo numbers to Europe and to invent the Fischer series, to make Fibonacci the ‘1.618’ golden ratio, in 1996 Parmigiani completed the first batch of Fibonacci hunting watches design diagram.

 Powerful performance
   As mentioned in the introduction, wearing a mechanical watch is indeed not suitable for intense sports; however, sports watches are absolutely indispensable for connection with the diving field. Even if the number of people who actually wear a diving watch is tens of meters deep, the waterproof performance is still An important indicator of the professionalism of a diving watch. On the other hand, it allows the wearer to face the daily conditions such as water intrusion and impact without fear. It can also be regarded as a sports watch with stronger characteristics than ordinary timepieces.

Among them, the watch with a 46 mm diameter and a water resistance of 1,000 meters is the brand’s in the exhibition hall. focus. However, such a large diameter is not suitable for wearing on everyone’s wrist. The other two 42mm diameter models with black and blue face plates may be closer.
   Looking back on history, the Frogman watch is an exclusive timepiece specially made by the brand for the American Special Forces in 1951. In response to various dangerous tasks such as airborne, beach grabbing, and combat, the design of the crown adopts a lock-type rotary kettle-like protection device such as a military kettle rod, which has the effects of waterproof and anti-collision. The new frogman timepiece retains this design, and further uses the M-14 rifle’s gun mechanism to make further improvements. It is also powerful and convenient to use. The watch has ISO 6425 norm professional diving certification and is water resistant up to 300 meters. The H-10 self-winding movement is equipped with an 80-hour power reserve, which enhances the overall performance of the watch.

IWC Marine Timepiece Automatic
   Regarding the appearance of general diving watches, IWC’s marine timepieces in recent years have always used rotating inner rings, which are distinguished from the rotating outer rings commonly used on the case, highlighting the brand’s differences in the field of diving watches. Rotating the inner ring itself is not uncommon. Most of the operations are performed by an additional crown, which is also easy to operate. However, the reason why the design of IWC is particularly in the newly developed SafeDive safety diving system is that it can rotate in both directions by rotating the case. However, the scale can be rotated only in the counterclockwise direction, and the clockwise clockwise continues to idle to prevent accidental contact. .
   This watch was launched two years ago. Before that, the most basic waterproof performance was only 120 meters. This watch has a depth of 300 meters and has been included in the professional diving watch list. Another feature is the luminous hands and hour markers, which are marked with the hour and hour scales in blue, and the minute and rotary chronograph scales are represented in green, making ‘hours’ and ‘minutes’ clearer. The crown on the left side of the case is actually an automatic helium discharge device. As a timer that can dive into the deep sea, professional design is absolutely necessary.

Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea Watch-Model 116660 904L stainless steel Oyster case, unidirectional rotating Cerachrom ceramic word ring, 44 mm diameter, screw-down crown, rear lower case, hour, minute, second, date display , Luminous hands and time stamp, 3135 automatic winding movement, COSC certification, power reserve 48 hours, sapphire crystal glass surface, screw-in caseback and crown, waterproof 3900 meters, 904L stainless steel strap.

Rolex Deepsea Rolex Oyster Perpetual-Model 116660
   To be fair, to talk about the powerful performance, you can’t ignore the record set by Rolex, that is, in 2012, with the great director James Cameron diving into the deep sea of ​​Mariana Trench 10,908 meters deep. Chanllenge experimental watch. At that time, the watch was fitted outside the submarine and remained in normal running time for nearly seven hours in contact with seawater. This pioneering work also led Rolex to launch the Deepsea Commemorative in 2014, changing the original black faceplate to a D-blue gradient color table, representing the gradual deepening of the underwater world from sea level.
   However, before the birth of this commemorative faceplate, the Deepsea watch was already extremely powerful, with a water-resistant depth of 3900 meters and an automatic helium discharge device, which was enough to meet the limits of human beings. The requirements are attributed to the Rolex Ringlock system: a 5mm crystal stainless steel ring that can withstand huge water pressure between the mirror and the cover, and a grade 5 titanium alloy bottom cover screwed by a 904L stainless steel ring. The special Cerachrom ring is scratch-resistant and corrosion-resistant.

In the deep sea, helium is likely to penetrate the case due to the high pressure. When the diver returns to the surface, the pressure inside the case will be higher than outside the case, causing damage to the watch. The Rolex Deepsea watch automatically discharges helium at 9 o’clock. When the pressure in the watch exceeds 3 to 5 bar, the valve will open and release helium.

   Simple and clear, clear and easy-to-read hands, the hour markers have always been the signature of Rolex diving chronometers, and the Deepsea watch also uses blue luminous coating, which is very different. Equipped with a 3135 automatic movement, the stable balance wheel is supported by an adjustable height balance plate, thereby improving the shock resistance. Equipped with blue Parachrom hairspring, made of special alloy, anti-magnetic, shock-proof, and maintain stable performance under temperature changes. And like other Rolex watches, this movement is also certified by the Swiss Observatory, showing practical accuracy. The watch uses a 904L stainless steel case, which is more resistant to corrosion than ordinary 316L stainless steel and is a truly powerful timepiece.

   Seiko’s timepieces are exquisite in workmanship, and their design style has its own taste. Its diving watches are even more popular in sports watches. Some even compare them to Rolex or have two at the same time.
   Although this Prospex series model SBDX001J is a long time ago work, it continues the classic appearance of the brand’s 1968 diving watch, streamlined hands and hour markers, the crown position at 4 o’clock, and various Seiko unique designs. It seems there is still an irreplaceable texture. On the other hand, Seiko watches are always more functional in addition to craftsmanship. Since it is defined as a diving watch, it has considerable pressure resistance and water resistance. Regardless of whether it is deep enough at 300 meters underwater, the watch has the ability to saturate diving. The highly air-tight design prevents helium from entering the case, which achieves the effect of pressure and decompression during diving.

Sinn U1 camouflage watch
   In addition to the commonly used 316L or 904L used by Rolex, stainless steel also has a specially strengthened German submarine steel, which is also used by the German brand Sinn’s U series watches.
