Introduction To Hamilton Pan-european Automatic Chronograph Watch

Stainless steel case, diameter 45mm, sky blue dial and outer ring, red chronograph hands, equipped with Hamilton self-main movement H31, brown embossed leather strap, waterproof 100 meters, limited to 1971 only
 When I interviewed Hamilton President SyLVain Dolla earlier this year, I asked him, ‘Is Hamilton planning to resume the tradition of movement development?’ & rdquo; So he showed me two chronographs using Hamilton’s own movement, which are the two that appeared at the show. H21 and H31 are officially called self-made movements. I call them quasi-self-produced movements because they are developed based on ETA7750 and 7753. Compared with the original, the new movement has a much larger size and is matching the Hamilton watch, which means that almost all parts have to be redesigned, verified and manufactured. The movement of the movement has been lengthened and can store 60 hours of energy. It can be left unwinding for two days. The H31 also adds the instant jump calendar function. Because it is a new launch, we still don’t know whether these two movements are going to be accurate. What can be confirmed at present is that one of them sells well, and the other is very reasonable in price.

Don’t Think You Understand Cartier. Do You Know What They Do?

The laymen of the watches and clocks mentioned Cartier, they always felt that Cartier did not start with watches and clocks, and even made gunpowder barrels, disapproving of its clocks, but more interested in ancient Swiss brands. In fact, this idea is completely unscientific, Cartier is far better and more outstanding than you think. The dial is an important external beauty of the watch. The patterns, patterns and even colors on it are all masterpieces. You can’t think of Cartier, and you can draw petals, beads, and straw so beautifully.

  Cartier BallonBleudeCartier Parrot Watch: Floral Inlay
Red roses are enthusiastic, yellow roses are noble, and blue roses are dazzling. In the sea of ​​flowers, they are charming and outstanding. They are slowly brewing, blooming enthusiastically, and dying silently. Now, Cartier has made the flowers ‘red is not ruthless. ‘Things’ turned into an eternal beauty. Cartier introduced a new type of floral inlaying technology into the field of watchmaking. The ephemeral beauty of flowers will be preserved forever, making the dial of the 42mm BallonBleudeCartier watch more colorful.
 The BallonBleudeCartier flower-inlaid parrot decorative watch is an innovative technique first applied in the field of watchmaking. It transforms the ephemeral beauty of flowers into eternity. Using the technology in the jewelry field, the perfect combination of the two processes brings a The lifelike, beautiful Cartier BallonBleudeCartier floral inlaid parrot decoration watch. The two processes complement each other. All the parrot feathers on the dial are made of petals. Each petal must be colored, dried, and cut, and then finely collaged into a parrot pattern. The spots on the petals around the eyes need to be painted by a craftsman . With black agate as the beak and emerald as the eyes, the entire dial is bright and dynamic.
   This watch from Cartier shows a miracle to the world. The parrot decoration watch will transform the fleeting beauty into eternity. It takes a lot of time and a series of complicated steps: collecting petals and coloring each one. The petals are placed on a thin piece of wood and then cut into the desired shape with the help of a fine inlay pedal saw. Then they changed and turned into feathers. This rare material is noble and lively, yet sensual but fragile. The full shape and texture are in sharp contrast with the sparkling luster of the black agate bird’s beak and emerald eyes. In order to make the black and gray feathers around the eyes more eye-catching, the spots need to be completed one by one using a micro-painting process.
  RotondedeCartier Cheetah Decoration Watch: Metal Bead Craft
  To this day, enamel craftsmanship, fine inlaying, gem carving, etc., continue to be used in the Cartier Master Craftsmanship series. In addition, there are some rare and unusual crafts, such as the ancient goldsmith art-metal bead crafts. Etruscan artisans used it to the highest level, and now Cartier flexibly uses it. In order to make this door have thousands of years of history, the rare and almost lost ancient handicrafts have been restored to the world, Cartier has carefully adjusted and improved it to finally reinterpret it more perfectly. In close cooperation with modern masters who master these traditional craftsmanship, The infinite possibilities of its aesthetic creation.

  The Rotondede Cartier cheetah decorative watch features a 42mm 18K yellow gold case set with 306 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 3.63 carats and an 18K yellow gold bead-shaped crown with a brilliant-cut diamond. The 22K yellow gold dial is decorated with apple-shaped blue steel hands, and under the hands is the classic cheetah head logo pattern made of metal beads. The pattern is complicated to make, and the craftsman needs to heat the cut gold thin wire at high temperature until tiny beads are formed. Then, place these gold beads one by one into the part to be decorated, and fuse with the gold base to create a three-dimensional relief pattern. A glamorous, radiant cheetah’s head emerges from the dial, witnessing the ancient craftsmanship that has traveled for thousands of years, breathtaking.

Such a noble and domineering watch, I do not know what kind of talent can control it.
  CartierRotondedeCartier Koala Watch: Straw Inlay

  Straw is a natural material with deep roots in human history. In ancient times, straw was the part of stems and leaves remaining after the threshing of gramineous plants such as rice and wheat. Before the industrialization of human beings, farmers used straws in a variety of ways, not only for firewood, but also for weaving into household items such as dots, mattresses, brooms, and even roofs. Dial craftsmen first select different types of straws based on toughness and gloss, flatten them with bone pressure sticks, cut them with a fine wood carving saw, and then make into different sizes of mosaic materials. Finally, these straws of different sizes and colors are arranged closely to form a pattern of koalas.

  The biggest feature of using straw as the mosaic material is that the natural golden luster of the straw can be used, and the rich pattern has a lifelike effect. This unique gloss lasts for a long time, and it can maintain its natural state for a long time without applying any protective measures or glazing. This watch is easy to win the favor of ladies watch lovers. Koalas themselves are a beloved animal. When it appears on the wearer’s wrist, it will add a freshness and cuteness to your temperament.

  This watch’s 35mm white gold case is very suitable for women’s wrists. The bezel is set with 43 round diamonds, but it is a little understated against the rustic koala dial. The beaded diamond design of the crown is the most gorgeous detail. In terms of power, it is equipped with Cartier’s own 9601MC movement and a 46-hour power reserve. Unlike the 8000MC, this movement is completely assembled and adjusted by Cartier’s workshop in LaChaux-de-Fonds. It is limited to high-end limited watch models, has a 46-hour power reserve, and is 30 meters waterproof. Limited edition of 20 pieces. This watch is playful and cute. If you like koalas, you must find one.

  RotondedeCartier watch: embossed craftsmanship

 The jade relief is another unique and exquisite craftsmanship that Cartier has pioneered on the watch. Cartier is extremely passionate and boldly applies subtle relief technology to the art of watchmaking to create this watch. The subtle gradation blue of natural agate is reminiscent of the sea, and a subtle crocodile emerges from the waves under the axe of the gem cutter. Concavo-convex lines are thinly outlined on the relief jade, making its light more luxurious and cool.

  The crocodile itself is a ferocious, carnivore image that is undoubtedly one of the most symbolic animals in Cartier’s animal-themed watch series. It is particularly striking for its bold relief and shining interpretation. It requires special expertise to show the nuances of agate from blue-black to brilliant white without damaging the gem.

  This watch not only has a beautiful dial, but also has powerful clock functions. The case of 18K white gold is set against a blue dial. At six o’clock, a tourbillon device is provided. Through the mirror, you can admire the superb craftsmanship. Each part is extremely smooth and delicate. . The tourbillon watch represents the highest level in the manufacturing process of mechanical watches. The entire escapement speed regulating mechanism is combined and can rotate, and continuously rotates at a certain speed, making it make the gravity attract the ‘escape system’ in the mechanical watch. To minimize the impact and improve travel time accuracy. Due to its unique operation mode, the dynamic artistic beauty of clocks has been brought to the peak and has always been known as the ‘king of watches’.
  In addition, this glamorous watch has the intricacies of a flying tourbillon and the distinguished Geneva mark: a masterpiece of art and watchmaking. From the perspective of power, the Cartier 9452MC workshop refined the manual-winding mechanical movement, engraved with the high-quality mark of Geneva, equipped with a floating tourbillon, and the ‘C’ -shaped tourbillon frame also functions as a second indicator.

Summary: There is a certain kind of inspiration flashing in my head called creativity. Putting creativity into practice is the masterpiece. Cartier’s watch design masters are always good at thinking, good at drawing inspiration from nature, and good at anything beautiful. Highlights found. Regardless of appearance or inner, Cartier always maintains superiority and maintains high quality. So they go further and further on the road of innovation, constantly linking timepieces with some superb and even rare craftsmanship, constantly bringing unparalleled products and surprises to the world, and turning short-term beauty into eternal memory. , Time will be extremely brilliant and brilliant.
