Montblanc Nicholas Kies hollow double time zone display chronograph
新 The appearance of this new work is classical and beautiful. The new self-made MB R210 movement also integrates the classic chronograph structure and advanced technology elements, and uses the dial to replace the hands to display the second time zone time. The hour dial in the second time zone is hollow and clear, leaving only a small number of hours and supporting spokes. This new movement was designed and developed by Montblanc itself, which shows that Montblanc has the technical level of an authentic watch factory. The timing program is controlled by the column wheel, and the power is transmitted to the timing wheel through the advanced disc clutch, which avoids jumping when the second chronograph is started, and can greatly reduce the operation loss of the second chronograph. A screw balance with a diameter of nearly 10 mm has a swing frequency of 28,800 times per hour (4Hz), which makes fine adjustment of the precision performance better. The movement has a dual spring drum and a power reserve of about 72 hours. It provides ideal torque and stable swing. All these are necessary conditions for accurate timepieces. Even if the watch is left aside for a day or two, it still does not prevent the accuracy of the time.
This new work has a precious 18K rose gold model. The elegant and dynamic watch is indeed well made. The polished bezel and two-level lugs are timeless. The crown is full and carved with fine pits. Trademark; about 95 grams of rose gold used to make the case, and the buckle is also made of 25 grams of rose gold, making the entire watch more luxurious and weight; double-sided anti-glare arched crystal glass mirror dial dial unique design layout The back of the watch is inlaid with crystal glass pieces, precision parts such as the movement, oscillating weight and column wheel, as well as the craftsmanship.

Porsche America Club is the world’s largest single-brand car club. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, Chopard has launched a limited edition of 66 Mille Miglia watches.
2014 is the 25th anniversary of Chopard’s sponsorship of the Mille Miglia 1000 mile endurance race, and Porsche America Club will celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2015.

For centuries, ladies’ watches have paid more attention to their decorative functions. Therefore, professional craftsmanship, including gem setting, is often regarded as the key to production. As mechanical watches regained focus, women’s wearers began to pay more attention to precision timepieces. This is undoubtedly a new challenge for watchmakers: they must change the design concept of reducing the size of men’s watches in the past. Mechanical watches specially developed for women have become a watchmaker’s attention. It is one of the industries with increasingly complex and perfect functions. This is also evident from the new women’s watch works launched this year-
While focusing on functionality, watchmakers are paying more and more attention to the combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern innovative technology-the perfect use of techniques such as rose petal inlay technology, carving technology and Qianhua crystal decoration art is a good example. These craftsmanship and technology not only allow watch designers to express their creativity, but also show the wonderful shape of timepieces to the fullest, adding a poetic expression to precision machinery. These ‘decorations’ are not only reflected in external components, but also in the carving of movement components. In addition, hollow design has become another popular trend. This process aims to create the lightest and thinnest parts of the movement, making the movement an art treasure. There is no obstruction of the dial, and the wonderful movement can be seen at a glance.
In terms of color presentation, this year’s watch works abandon dazzling colorful colors and return to classic black to highlight the beauty of classic design, which is particularly important in complex ultra-thin timepieces. At the same time, these ultra-thin watches are once again the highest in many worlds. Among the many ‘traditional’ complex watches, the minute repeater with a series of complex and innovative technologies is still receiving much attention. This function was originally designed to accurately tell the time in any situation, especially when it is impossible to read at night. Today, the reinterpretation by the watchmaker has become a model of extreme craftsmanship and artistic presentation.
