Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Montblanc TimeWalker series
Montblanc launched the Montblanc TimeWalker series for the first time in 2004, introducing members of the new watch family and defining new design concepts. Its highlights include architectural lines, 43 mm case, extremely narrow bezel, elegant cutout lugs, flat dials, The clear and easy-to-read special Arabic numerals and unique willow-shaped hands, and its innovative shape make this series a warm response in the ten years after its launch. The strong masculine flavor combined with the sports elegant style makes the Montblanc TimeWalker series the best-selling wrist Table series one. Ten years after the launch of the Montblanc TimeWalker series, Montblanc is proud to present the Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC to celebrate the second decade of the Montblanc TimeWalker series.
The color of the diamond-like carbon coating is called ‘Black 4’, which means ‘extremely black.’ Since it is almost impossible to make a deeper black than ‘Black 4’, ‘DLC’ (abbreviation of ‘Diamond-like Carbon’ material) can be said to represent the limit of the surface hardness of the stainless steel case. The small glass ball blasting operation is performed under high pressure, so that the surface of the stainless steel has a microstructure. In this way, the diamond-like carbon coating can be adhered to it almost without falling off, and a highly textured surface is formed on the surface. Matte layer. Other stainless steel parts are treated in the same way, such as: easy-to-operate crown, timing button, charm night black fork-type pin buckle, and suspended bottom cover with sapphire crystal. The automatic mechanical movement MB4810 / 507 can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. The movement combined with the chronograph function is completely made in accordance with Swiss watchmaking technology. The vibration frequency reaches 28,800 times per hour (4 Hz). The second hand can accurately measure time to 1/8 second.
The new TimeWalker chronograph dial uses the same black tone as the case, and is carefully crafted by well-known dial makers in the professional watch industry, exuding the unique art of high-end dials (cadraniers). The various display functions on the dial are designed at different levels. The middle layer includes the center and periphery of the dial and is embossed with a circular pattern. The periphery of the dial is engraved with the seconds scale used by the slender chronograph seconds hand, and each scale is further subdivided into four clear and easily recognizable small scales, representing 1/4 second to match the frequency of the movement’s 4 Hz. There are three small dials on the dial, one of which is the uninterrupted hour and second hand, and the other two are the chronograph dial, which are located at six o’clock, nine o’clock, and twelve o’clock. The hour scale ring located above the middle layer is treated with a black matte surface without any decoration. The scale ring has super luminous numerals. The numerals adopt the patented TimeWalker font and are equipped with clear and easy-to-read double hands. In the function of time measurement, the simple design allows the wearer to see at a glance, the coal gray ruthenium-plated hands and the background color of Charm Night Black are in sharp contrast, which is more visually prominent. The five hands are in a typical willow-shaped design and coated with super luminous paint; the top of the balanced chronograph second hand is red. The date display window at 4:30 shows the current date. The white numbers in the TimeWalker font are even more eye-catching against the black background.
Innovative watch materials
Montblanc upholds the value of traditional craftsmanship, follows the watchmaking principles of Swiss haute horlogerie, and is committed to the pursuit of revolutionary technology and concepts. The pursuit of performance and innovation is not only reflected in the unprecedented development of the world of watchmaking, but also in the use of new materials.
The black body of Montblanc TimeWalker Series Extreme Chronograph DLC uses impressive technology and exudes sporty elegance. It is impressive. The material combination of the strap and the complexity of the process are more worthy of attention. The inner layer of the strap is black ‘vulcarboné (High-tech vulcanized rubber) ‘to make the strap more strong and elastic.
Anti-fracture strands commensurate with the tone of the leather are used to sew cowhide (cowhide) on the upper surface of the rubber. The time-consuming and laborious process adds texture to the leather; special processing methods fuse the leather, not just the bag. A layer of leather can increase its structural strength-innovative leather processing creates high-performance materials with special protective properties, providing additional anti-wear protection and waterproof and fire protection for leather. This material will be used in the components of various Montblanc products, which further proves that the complexity and innovation and performance requirements of Montblanc watches are not limited to the movement, but also include various parts, such as straps, case structures and dials. This watch is more carefully selected like the other stainless steel components. It is a black stainless steel pin buckle treated with micro-bead blasting and covered with a layer of ‘black 4’ diamond carbon. It is matched with its high-tech watch strap.
The new Montblanc TimeWalker Series Extreme Chronograph DLC is expected to be available in the fall of 2014.

Swiss traditional watchmaking troika, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet. Two of them are on display at Geneva. The steel watch of the PP, VC and AP troikas has always been the watch most players pay attention to. Because of the high positioning of the troika, the threshold for entry is high, and the steel price of the troika is always a hot target because of its relatively low price. This year, at the Geneva Watch Fair, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Vacheron Constantin Wool, and steel watches in the two major series are all new, especially the Royal Oak has major updates. Has an impact on players buying watches, need to focus on.
Royal Oak new 15500, 15500 is a replacement model of 15400.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15500
The rumor that the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400 was updated to 15500 before the show was confirmed to be true at the show, and the Royal Oak has been updated to the new 15500 on Audemars Piguet’s official website (15400 was launched in 2012). As the biggest hot watch of Audemars Piguet, 15400 became 15500, which received great attention from players. 15500 still maintains 41 mm, the main changes are as follows:
Details of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15500 have been changed.
1. The calendar is at 3 o’clock, and the time mark is cancelled at 3 o’clock.
2. The luminous time scale is thickened (the length is slightly shortened).
3. The scale is changed from the top of the checkered pattern to the outermost edge of the dial.
4. Cancel the words AUTOMATIC on the panel.
The AP logo at 5 and 12 o’clock is larger, and the distance between the letters A and P is increased.
6. Replace the new 4302 automatic winding movement.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15500 (left) vs. 15400 (right)
As you can see, the appearance has been fine-tuned. The main change is that the new movement 4302 is better. Audemars Piguet’s new 4302 caliber replaces the 3120 caliber on the 15400. The 4302 caliber is increased to 28800, the power is increased to 70 hours, and the performance is improved compared to the 3120. The size of the 4302 movement is 32 mm, which is significantly larger than the 3120 movement of 26 mm. This time Audemars Piguet upgraded from 15400 to 15500, I feel that it is mainly for changing the movement.
Audemars Piguet 4302 movement
Although the 15500 new model is launched, according to the current Audemars Piguet Royal Oak market and market conditions, although there are 15500, the 15400 market in circulation should not be affected. The reason is that the steel shell Royal Oak originally had more wolves and less meat, and the supply exceeded demand. 15400 is now scarce and 15500 are out, but as long as the supply cannot keep up, the problem cannot be solved. Therefore, the situation of Royal Oak 15400 and 15500 should be like the red and blue circle and blue and black circle of the Rolex five-bead chain. The new five-bead chain is circled red and blue, but it has not affected the blue-black circle market at all. The root of hot-fried watches is still in supply.
Vacheron Constantin’s new Wulu steel shell junior.
In the past year, Wu Lu (56) is Vacheron Constantin’s most watched watch. The reason is that Vacheron Constantin’s Wulu series contains a steel three-pin. After the Vacheron Constantin Wulu series went on the market, the public price of this three-pin steel shell was 89,000, which is the lowest Vacheron Constantin and the only Vacheron Constantin with a public price of less than 100,000. However, from the actual situation, Vacheron Constantin did not supply a large number of three-pins of this steel case with a public price of only 89,000, but intended to control the supply. Maintain Vacheron Constantin’s overall high public price position. At this Geneva watch exhibition, Vacheron Constantin further expanded the scope of steel watches. In the Wulu series, a blue disk steel shell Wulu full-calendar moon phase, a blue disk steel shell Wulu junior pin, and the junior pin can also choose a steel chain.
Vacheron Constantin new Wulu steel shell full moon phase.
The new blue disk steel case Wulu three-pin belt version has a public price of 89,000, and the steel belt version has an undecided price; the blue disk steel case Wulu has a monthly calendar price of 175,000. For players, Vacheron Constantin’s expansion of steel watches is good news. Vacheron Constantin now has a wide range of watches, Quedley, and Wu Lu. There are already a variety of steel watches available in multiple series. The lower-priced Wulu series may become the first Vacheron Constantin for many people in the future. Players can focus on.
At the beginning of 2017, Mido said that we would ‘encounter with the United States again’. I have always wondered how Mido will interpret beauty and interpretation of encounters. In March, Basel Watches At the jewellery show, we are looking forward to seeing all the new works of Mido series, including the Belem Celli series of real diamond watches, let us really feel the answer it gives. Mido Berenceli series genuine diamond ladies watch (model: M7600.3.64.8), classic, delicate, full of graceful posture, not moved by fashion, in front of it, we can easily imagine how, Only women can wear its passion and arrogance best.
Some beauty is external, some beauty is from temperament. The Mido Belem Sairee series of real diamond ladies watches, inspired by the Rennes Opera House, the classic building’s music soul and artistic atmosphere, through the subtle embellishment, into the watch. Obviously, it is most suitable for matching evening dresses. Entering the Opera House to listen to classical movements performed by top bands. Romantic and beautiful, but solemn yet so intellectual.
Mido’s new Belemcelli series genuine diamond ladies watch uses a compact 29mm case size, the case is made of stainless steel, the surface is coated with rose gold coating by PVD, which presents luxury Qi Yun, like the dazzling artistic civilization of the Rennes Opera House, gives women a distinguished character. As a new member of the Belem Celli series, the watch also upholds the classic characteristics of the series, the round case curve, the simple overall design sense, and the beautiful artistic decoration. It does not directly draw the concrete from the structure of the building. The detail design, but echoing the classical architecture with a spiritual connotation, is what sets it apart.
The curved lines naturally extend from the lugs to the entire case. The middle bezel is also polished and smooth with a curved surface. The classic beauty of the Tradition Watch emerges, and it is accompanied by a similarly rounded crown. Echoing the overall lines, it also provides excellent operating feel. This is a timeless beauty that has stood the test of time. Not only is it easy to match, but it also satisfies the critical eye.
In order to highlight the beauty of women, Mido chooses a highly intellectual hue-brown, and fills the dial with a mercerized sunburst process, which brings the streamer rotation of the face, which is gorgeous. On this basis, three gold hands are installed on the dial. The hour and minute hands are all classic and elegant toffee needles, which are cut by diamonds to add capital to the watch.
Of course, one of the main points of this year’s ladies ‘watches is the use of glittering real diamond materials, either as decoration or as time stamps, to once again enhance the splendid beauty of ladies’ models. Diamonds have always been a woman’s natural beloved material. Top Wesselton diamonds derived from the natural crystallization of the earth’s veins are not only precious, but also extraordinary. They are an essential luxury in women’s daily decoration. Mido is deeply aware of women’s love for beauty. The dial is set with 12 real diamonds by claw setting. This is the sincerity of Mido, because in most women’s watches of the same price class, diamonds are often not used. , But conventional zircon.
In addition to the attractive design of the surface, as a watch worthy of women’s love at first sight, it also needs to have excellent timeliness. Mido is equipped with an ETA 2671 automatic mechanical movement, which is meticulously crafted, and the automatic rotor is carefully decorated with the Geneva pattern and the MIDO logo, providing 38 hours of kinetic energy storage. Through the transparent sapphire glass bottom cover, the movement is clear at a glance, and time jumps at your fingertips.
At the same time, Mido equipped the watch with a brown calfskin rolled crocodile pattern strap and a PVD rose gold-plated stainless steel folding buckle, which is comfortable and easy to wear.
Summary: The Mido Belem Sairee series of real diamond ladies watches echo the artistic charm of the Rennes Opera House with a gorgeous posture, using certified real diamonds to applaud women. At the same time, there is also a 38mm diameter Berencelli series long kinetic real diamond men’s watch, which provides couples. Women’s models are priced at 8100 RMB domestically; men’s models are priced at 10400 RMB domestically. Meet with beauty again, and let it be what you love.
Many players are accustomed to using complex watches as a standard for measuring the quality of watch brands. Brands that can make complex watches have higher grades; brands that cannot make complex watches have lower grades. Although this classification method is ‘directly rude’, it also makes sense. For example, Patek Philippe is called the ‘watch king’. The important reason is that Patek Philippe represents a high level of various complex functions. For example, Rolex is super hot all over the world, but Rolex has never made complex watches, and only produces ‘simple watches’ (conventional functions other than tourbillons, three questions, perpetual calendar). Although Rolex also has watches with a public price of millions, but They are all decorated with diamonds and precious stones. In contrast, like Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Panerai, there are complex watches such as three questions, tourbillon, so some players often think that Rolex is not as good as them (this question depends on your own thinking).
Omega ‘first chronograph limited edition’, the public price reached about 800,000 yuan.
Not long ago, Omega released a manual chronograph with a price of about RMB 800,000. As soon as the news came out, many people were shocked at the time. Omega even had such a high-priced watch. Because we usually contact, mainly Omega watches around 40,000 to 100,000 watches. Omega’s main force, the hippocampal AT, hippocampal PO from more than 40,000 public prices. The dark side of the moon and the dark public price of the deep sea are 80,000 and 90,000. Omega with a public price of 800,000 is rare. But for those familiar with Omega, it is not that Omega does not make complex watches, but that Omega has already done it. Rolex does not have a complex watch, and Omega has always had a complex watch.
Omega’s high-end watch is very high.
Omega’s most powerful and complex watch is the central tourbillon. Among the mainstream watch brands, only Omega makes the center tourbillon (not counting independent watchmakers). Because the hippocampus, constellation, and Speedmaster are too hot, many people do not know that Omega has such a complicated watch.
Omega Tourbillon Center
In 1994, Omega launched the world’s first ‘central tourbillon’. According to the data of that year, this watch was developed by Omega by integrating the top R & D team of the Swatch Group. Anyone who knows watch technology can see that this watch is not only a center tourbillon, but also a mysterious watch. The tourbillon is located in the center of the watch face. The cage of the tourbillon is in the shape of the Omega LOGO. The hour and minute hands of the watch are actually printed on the transparent sapphire glass rotating on the upper and lower layers. It is driven by the gears on the edge of the case. Unlike ordinary tourbillons, the pointer will block the tourbillon.

Omega center tourbillon because of the special layout of the movement, so there are two crowns, the normal crown at 3 o’clock can only wind the watch (Omega center tourbillon is an automatic watch), the crown on the back of the case is used to Adjust the time. There are two ‘magic places’ in the Omega tourbillon. First, the Omega Center Tourbillon is an automatic winding tourbillon; second, the Omega Center Tourbillon is also certified by the Observatory. Every senior player knows that many of the tourbillons on the market are ‘looking good’, and the actual travel time is not allowed. Omega’s central tourbillon is certified by the observatory, and the daily error is + 6 / -4. Launched in 1994, it’s very shocking.

The Omega tourbillon is available in rose gold, platinum, and full diamond versions. The public price of different versions ranges from about one million to more than one million. The highest price version can reach more than 4 million. Someone will definitely ask, will anyone buy such an expensive Omega? Someone buys it because I know that some collectors in China have this watch, and most people don’t buy it. After all, the Omega Tourbillon in the world is the world’s first center tourbillon and the only one among the mainstream watch brands, representing the strength of Omega’s complex watches.

Therefore, the Omega chronograph with a public price of about 800,000 is not unusual at all.
Omega can produce a mid-priced tourbillon with a price of one million, so a manual chronograph with a price of hundreds of thousands is actually not unusual at all. It is normal for a brand of Omega level. Watches with a public price of tens of thousands of yuan are aimed at most players. Watches with a public price of hundreds of thousands or even millions are for high-end collectors.
Omega ‘First Chronograph Limited Edition’
Players who are familiar with various watches should be aware that in luxury watches, manual chronographs are no less important than the complicated functions of tourbillons and perpetual calendars. Because of the pure column wheel, horizontal clutch manual chronograph movement and polished decoration, it is very complicated. The manual chronograph with a price of 600,000 to 700,000 is normal. Patek Philippe’s 5170 and Lange’s DATO are almost at this price. Omega’s manual chronograph can achieve such a high public price for a reason.
Omega ‘First Chronograph Limited Edition’
The official name of this Omega chronograph is ‘Limited Edition of Omega’s First Chronograph’, with a public price of $ 121,000, about RMB 800,000 and a limited edition of 18. As the name suggests, it is the reproduction of the first chronograph in the history of Omega in 1913. Whether from the look of the watch or the movement, it completely restores the historical prototype. The important point is, why the Omega chronograph is so expensive, the most important reason is that Omega uses the historical antique chronograph movement, the Omega 18 manual manual chronograph movement (18 orders represent size). The 18 movements on the 18-piece limited watch were collected by Omega for 5 years and collected from the Omega Museum.
The 18-revolution movement used in the Omega ‘First Chronograph Limited Edition’ has been refurbished.
Someone may ask, from 1913 to 2018, there are 105 years in between. Can antique movements still be used? This is the second reason why Omega’s manual chronograph is of high value. Omega has to disassemble, polish, decorate, plate, add new parts and complete the assembly of these 18 antique movements. According to Omega news, the processing of antique movements took up to 700 hours. The department that carried out these tasks was the department that previously developed the Omega tourbillon. Omega Antique 18 makes the main splint, splint, chronograph lever, balance wheel, escapement fork, etc. in the movement, these parts continue to be used after refurbishing and polishing. The gears, jewel bearings and hairsprings in the movement are all newly produced. Regardless of past parts or new parts, the movement parts of these 18 limited edition watches are all polished and decorated by hand. It is completely different from the Omega mass production watch.
Omega’s ‘Limited Edition of the First Chronograph’ 18 disassembles the movement parts.
In addition to the movement, Omega’s first chronograph limited edition is completely restored in appearance. 47.5mm 18K white gold case, chronograph button and crown are 18K rose gold. It is worth noting that this chronograph is a one-button chronograph. The timing button is at 6 o’clock in the case, which is different from ordinary chronographs. Omega’s manual chronograph uses an enamel dial, and the two small chronograph dials are also enamel. The hour and minute hands are baked blue hands, and the large chronograph seconds hand is rose gold.
Omega’s ‘first chronograph limited edition’ enamel dial, dial and chronograph are all enamel.
Because the main force of Omega’s most volume is watches with a public price of about 40,000 to 90,000, many people buy, so it is easy to make people ‘forget’ high-end watches, complex watches. It’s just like Audi has A3, A4, Volkswagen-oriented cars, and 10-cylinder supercars like R8.
