75th Anniversary Special Edition Iwc Portugal Manual Winding Eight Days Reserve Watch List

The annual watch event, the Geneva International Watch Fair, has been opened. 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.
   To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the brand’s most iconic Portuguese collection, IWC has launched a new special edition of the IWC Portuguese series manual winding eight-day power reserve watch “75th Anniversary”, recalling the little-known but attractive IWC Founder of the Portuguese collection. This limited edition anniversary model is almost the same as the Portuguese series founder, and the manual winding of it once a week has become a wonderful ceremony for the wearer.

   The newly launched IW510206 model is equipped with an 18k red gold case and silver-plated dial, which inherits the color design of the historical models and the font of the brand logo almost intact. A date display was added at the ‘6 o’clock’ position.

43 mm case diameter

Cogwheel screw-in crown with IWC logo
Brown alligator strap with rose gold pin buckle

The case is naturally curved, with soft sanding at the corners

Small three-pointer design, small seconds dial and round date display window at 6 o’clock

   Equipped with the 59215 self-made movement, the watch has a reliable power of up to eight days in a proud size of 37.8 mm in diameter-in fact, this power can be almost nine days, but an ingenious braking device moves the movement Travel time is limited to 192 hours after winding to ensure accurate movement of the movement, which is exactly eight days. Stopping the movement before the mainspring tension is completely exhausted will help eliminate the adverse effects of the constant weakening of the mainspring moment and ensure that the accuracy of the watch remains the same throughout the entire operation. The Glucydur® beryllium balance wheel with a trimmer frequency of 4800 Hz, which is 28800 times per hour, and the Breguet hairspring that is bent and shaped using traditional watchmaking technology, ensure the watch’s extremely high accuracy.

Summary: The five-day Geneva Haute Horlogerie show presented a unique visual feast for us, and we look forward to the reporting group in front of the Watch House to bring us more exciting content.

Blancpain Villeret Series Quantième Annuel Gmt Annual Calendar 6670-1127-55 Watch

At the Baselworld 2016, Blancpain presented the latest Villeret series Quantième Annuel
Stainless steel version of the GMT timepiece. This model is 6670-1127-55 and is equipped with a 6054F self-winding movement. Coupled with its retro and simple appearance, it is very suitable for fashion elegant wear. In addition, its annual calendar function is accurate and convenient. It only needs to be adjusted once at the end of February every year. It has the GMT two-time function, which is also very suitable for business travellers who frequently travel abroad.

   This Villeret series 6670-1127-55 is not really new. Back in 2011 Quantième Annuel
GMT has launched platinum and rose gold watches. And this 6670-1127-55 is just this is the first time that this complicated function model is launched in stainless steel. The dial of the new steel two-year calendar watch has changed. The dial was originally a complex sunburst. Now it has been replaced with a simple matte white dial. The dial layout remains the same. The center is the normal hour, minute, and second hands. The three rectangular windows on the left indicate the day, date, and month. The GMT hands have not fallen into the usual position and are placed at the 8 o’clock one. 24-hour dial; 6670-1127-55 watch with a diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of 11.04 mm, the same size as previous precious metal models. The double-stepped case is fully polished, the coin crown is also polished, and the brand’s logo is cast on the side.

Old Villeret Quantième Annuel 6670-1542-55B watch
   All hands and Roman numerals are made of stainless steel, and here really should be platinum. The case is equipped with a hidden adjustment device under Blancpain’s original lugs. This is the standard feature of the JB calendar. It is strange why other home calendars are rarely designed this way. This design makes the sides of the case look clean and neat. The adjuster set at 1 o’clock can correct the day of the week, and the adjuster set at 5 o’clock can correct the month (time, GMT, date are adjusted by the crown).

   This kind of asymmetrical almanac function instruction is rare. We are more commonly seeing the 12 o’clock symmetrical window layout of the PP almanac. At the beginning, I definitely saw the calendar as unfamiliar as possible. Slowly, I find this unique design not to be interesting. The three functions of normal time, calendar, and time are clearly separated, as long as you are used to reading.
   What’s more unique is that the crown adjusts the hour hand to move for one hour until it jumps to the full hour, instead of rotating evenly, it has a little taste of the timepiece! The calendar also jumps, because there is still a time when the media appreciates it. Surface film, can not adjust the weekly calendar and month, I suppose they are also fast jump, FP movement factory to achieve an instant jump calendar function is still determined. That being said, each transient jump mechanism requires the addition of a set of cam energy storage release mechanisms, Blancpain can also control the entire watch thickness within the range of the watch.

   With a bottom-through structure, we can easily see the 6054F automatic two-dimension annual calendar movement on this watch. Blancpain equips the steel watch movement with a gold rotor, which is not shrinking at all here. The golden chandelier rotor is in sharp contrast with the stainless steel case. The almanac and GMT functions are arranged on the dial side. What you see on the back of the watch is only the regular movement version; the 6054F vibration frequency is 4Hz, there are 34 gems, a total of 367 components and a 72-hour power reserve. The plywood is decorated with Geneva stripes, the main plywood is decorated with round patterns, and the plywood is chamfered and polished.
   This Blancpain Villeret series Quantième Annuel GMT two-year calendar 6670-1127-55
Watches are very practical for the average consumer. And such a powerful movement is built into the popular stainless steel case, which makes this watch add a lot of calm and low-key in addition to practicality. At present, this watch has not been officially priced in China, and the price in Europe is 25,440 Euros. Friends who like this watch can pay more attention!

2013 Sihh Geneva High Watch Salon-richard Mille Rm 27-01 Rafael Nadal Tourbillon Watch

In 2013, Richard Mille worked with Rafael Nadal again to design the RM 27-01 tourbillon watch, which once again set a record in terms of lightness and durability of the watch.

 Rafael Nadal’s collaboration with Richard Mille opened a successful title page: On the tennis court, Nadal from Mallorca won the seventh French Open title in 2012; in terms of watches, in addition to the launch of Richard Mille with ultra light In addition to the RM 027 Rafael Nadal tourbillon watch that shakes the watch industry, the RM 035 Rafael Nadal watch, which is able to withstand an acceleration of 5000 G without affecting its performance, has also been awarded Chronofiable® for its excellent performance Certified.
 In 2013, Richard Mille worked with Rafael Nadal again to design the RM 27-01 tourbillon watch, which set a new record in terms of lightness and durability.
 The movement of RM27-01 is an astonishing masterpiece of engineering and technology. The first architectural structure is extremely complex, born of Richard Mille’s determination to develop a watch with the movement placed in the center of the case by suspension. Richard Mille took inspiration from the structural engineering of the suspended bridge structure, and expressed his willingness to apply such a structural design to the world of watches only a few tens of millimeters wide. After several months of meticulous research and development, Richard Mille’s engineers finally embody this avant-garde design concept and have achieved the most innovative building structure in recent years.
 The plate of the RM 27-01 Rafael Nadal Tourbillon watch is connected to the case by four steel cables. The braided steel cable is only 0.35 mm thick. Combining rigidity and toughness, this structure protects a movement with a total weight of only 3.5 grams. The reason why the weight of the movement can be greatly reduced is mainly based on the application of high-end materials: the bridge plate and the tourbillon frame are made of five-level titanium alloy, and the barrel and bridge mechanism of the barrel are made of aluminum lithium alloy.
 These cables are tightened by means of tensioners at 3 and 9 o’clock, and pulleys that act as tower bridges at the 4 ends of the movement. Each steel cable is fixed on the tensioning device, passes through the upper pulley and the movement, returns to the lower pulley, and then enters the inner ring located on the lower layer of the watch. After the rope is wound, the watchmaker turns the center ring of the tensioning device with a special tool to tighten the rope.
The tensioning of the steel cable and the control of the tensioning force are very difficult operations. When the tension is too tight, the wire rope or the fixing device may be broken at any time and damage the movement; on the contrary, if the wire rope is too loose, it may cause the movement to resonate and affect the timing performance.

 This remarkable movement, thanks to the movement structure suspended in the center of the case, can withstand accelerations exceeding 5000 G.
The weight of the RM 27-01 is only 19 grams, and it includes a Velcro® strap! This lightweight body also comes from the application of the case material. The RM 27-01 case with a one-piece case structure is made of carbon material. The dark gray color comes from the high-concentration carbon nanotubes in the structure, which brings perfect impact resistance and scratch resistance, and provides Rafael Nadal’s indispensable wearing comfort in tennis matches. He will all be wearing the RM 27-01 debut game.
Limited edition of 50 pieces of carbon nanotube material with Velcro® strap RM 27-01.
