The main novelty watch industry - 2013. Part 1
In today's information society and the business can not hide anything from his rivals, so the participants BaselWorld in Geneva confirmed the emerging trends of the art of watchmaking. It is also highly relevant minute repeaters, which now make up the competition clock with musical arrangements. Brands actively present their chronographs own development and production, reduce the size of enclosures up to 40 mm, compete to create ultra classic watches actively using nanotechnology and advanced materials. Also, companies are trying to create a watch with unique dials, representing miniatures on enamel, mother of pearl on, decorate them with mosaics of precious stones, straw or feathers and invent new technologies and new inlays of precious stones. About the most interesting and significant trends we'll tell you later. For now represent the main sensation BaselWorld-2013.
Patek Philippe Gondolo 8 Days Day & Date Indication 5200
Grand watchmaking currently focused all efforts on the preparation of highly complex hours to 175-year anniversary, which is an independent house to celebrate next year. But absolutely no novelties, of course, he could not do. The most interesting of which was published in the collection of Gondolo - in a rectangular enclosure (46,9 x32, 4 mm) made of white gold with anatomic bend. The most famous model of the line - Tourbillon with ten day power reserve (Ref.5100). Interestingly, taking as a basic mechanism 28-20 REC, Patek Philippe completed the master of his descent from silicon, the tourbillon module is removed and replaced with a calendar module inserted the instant action with indicators of numbers and days of the week, which is triggered at midnight. Power reserve of the two winding drums has been reduced to eight days.
Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement
The fact that the loss of independence has many positive aspects, proves an example of Girard-Perregaux, which is one and a half years ago - after the death of the owner Gino Macaluso - was acquired by concern Gucci. As a result, the fashion Gucci watches have gained elite automatic mechanisms GP-3000 series, and Girard-Perregaux received the necessary funds to implement long-standing projects and finalized its sensational presented back in 2008, a constant slope. Instead of carrying a spiral in this watch is set a string of silicon, which the creators prefer to call the blade (perhaps they think that it will be easier to understand the function of the new descent). If you take a razor blade and it will compress the ends of the finger and thumb, the blade vygnetsya. Poke another finger into the bend, and the blade immediately vigorously will bend in the opposite direction. This is how the new regulator and. The blade is a hair's breadth of silicon thickness of 14 microns. Silicon - the single-crystal material, so is not afraid to wear and ready to flex with the same energy and rhythm forever. So managed to solve the perennial problem of horology - the constancy of force. Conventional clock, when the winding drum is cocked to the utmost, the rim varies balance angle 320 degrees and the clock is slow. With the dissolution of the clockwork spring balance wheel to rotate more often, and the oscillation angle is 180 degrees, and the hours run away forward. The watch has a power reserve of one week, the new slope is provided by the angular difference between the oscillations of the balance wheel from only 263 to 268 degrees - 5 degrees instead of 140 °! Interestingly, the creators of the first mechanism is forced to work with the revolutionary descent from the traditional frequency of 21 600 pc / h, but increase the number of oscillations and provide an even more accurate - not a problem and work on this is already underway. The mechanism of MVT-009100-0007 is placed in a convenient round case diameter of 48 mm white gold.Jaquet Droz The Bird Repeater
One of the oldest watch companies in e is celebrating the 275-year anniversary. Since Pierre Jaquet-Droz automata loved to watch and (moving mechanical sculptures or small figures), in honor of the founder of the company has released a minute repeater called "Little Bird."However, the plural in the title of hours it would be more appropriate, because on the face of not one, but five birds: tits mom and dad, two chick and one more, just hatched from eggs. Watches are equipped with an incredibly complex mechanism, which when running relief, fully three-dimensional image comes to life: one bird bends down to feed the chick, the other spreads wings to reveal a magnificent game of shades of plumage, from the egg, located deep in the nest, the chick hatches, the water begins to cascade flow on the dial. In this case, the minute repeater module beats time. Miniature art is made on the surface of the pearl dial, which gives each model is unique. The mechanism has a reserve of 48 hours. The model is available in white gold, encrusted with diamonds and pink gold (eight copies of each version).
