Precise To The Pinnacle-breguet, The Inventor Of The Tourbillon

On June 26, 1801, that is, on the 7th of the 9th year of the French Republic, Abraham-Louis Breguet obtained a 10-year patent for a new type of calibration device, named ‘Tourbillon’. The invention of the tourbillon is to correct the errors caused by the gravity of the clock. Today, this invention still has an unshakable place in the top watchmaking industry, which has also become one of the important milestones in the life of Master Breguet. It is closely related to astronomy and humanities, and it has also become a witness to the critical period of European thought.
Secret Tourbillon
   Even if you are not an experienced watch enthusiast, I believe most people will not be unfamiliar when they hear the term tourbillon. To have a watch with a tourbillon function is a lifetime expectation of many timepiece enthusiasts.
   The principle of the tourbillon is to put the entire balance, hairspring, and escapement into a cage that keeps rotating. This original method solves the gravity effect when the watch is in different vertical positions. Affect the problem of moving faster or slower.

Tourbillon device
Watchmaking myths that last more than two centuries
   If the timepiece represents the passage of time, talents that can still stand the test of more than 200 years are still truly classics. In the lifetime after the invention of the tourbillon by Mr. Breguet, that is, from 1805 to 1823, a total of 35 tourbillon timepieces were sold, of which No. 1176 and No. 1188 can be said to be the classics of these tourbillon timepieces.

No.1176
   No. 1176 is the third tourbillon pocket watch made by Abraham-Louis Breguet and the first pocket watch with a four-minute tourbillon. This pocket watch has a fan-shaped power reserve display that provides 35 hours of power; it features an hour dial and two small, small seconds dials. This pocket watch is undoubtedly the pinnacle of Mr. Abraham-Louis Breguet and is equipped with the ‘natural escapement’ invented by the master himself in 1789. This pocket watch belongs to one of the most famous aristocrats in Poland during the Enlightenment, the Duke of Potoski.

No.1188
   No. 1188 tourbillon pocket watch, sold in 1808. There are two sub-dials above the dial, one for the small seconds display and the other for the stop-seconds function. The 36-hour power reserve display is located on the dial. The tourbillon frame and balance can be seen from the back of the mounted movement. After the death of Don Antonio de Bourbon, the pocket watch was transferred to a Turkish collector who asked Breguet to customize an enamel dial with Turkish numerals on the watch in 1841 .
Tradition 7047 Sesame Chain Tourbillon Rose Gold Watch
   Speaking of Breguet’s modern tourbillon watch, it is necessary to mention the iconic Tradition series. This series of tourbillon watches is particularly charming, the most representative of which is the Tradition series 7047, this super complicated watch with tourbillon, sesame chain transmission system and silicon Breguet balance spring Features. Inspired by Abraham-Louis Breguet’s legendary Souscription. Its pure and modern aesthetic design creates unique conditions for the mechanical beauty of its tourbillon and sesame chain transmission system located on the upper part of the motherboard. This sculptural watch emphasizes contrast and three-dimensional effects, and gives each component a vibrant vitality.

   Tradition 7047 gold watch, equipped with an impressive tower-shaped tourbillon device, equipped with a precision manual winding Breguet 569 movement, and equipped with a silicon Breguet hairspring, 50 hours power reserve and on the barrel Power reserve display. The sesame chain transmission system ensures a constant torque output during the operation of the watch.
Marine Équation Marchante 5887
Super Complication Watch
   Breguet’s new Marine Équation Marchante 5887 watch is a unique chronograph masterpiece newly launched by Basel in 2017. This watch is not only equipped with the 581DR automatic winding movement, but also integrates the time equation, perpetual calendar and tourbillon. Super complicated functions, one of which is particularly proud of is the 60-second tourbillon, the Breguet balance wheel built into the titanium frame, and the silicon hairspring. This innovative design allows the balance to vibrate up to 4 Hz, while providing a self-winding movement with a sufficient power reserve of up to 80 hours. The dial has a power reserve indicator from 7 to 9 o’clock. The tourbillon runs coaxially with the cam of time equation, and through the transparent sapphire disc carrying the cam, the tourbillon mechanism is clearly identifiable.

Marine Équation Marchante 5887
   The front of the dial is decorated with two different engraved patterns, of which the delicate wave pattern is specially designed for this watch. The tourbillon bridge is engraved with the words ‘Marine Royale’ and is striking. The bridge is carefully engraved with the Royal Navy first class battleship ‘Royal Louis’. Through the sapphire glass back cover, you can see the fine details. Clockwork box with wind rose nautical compass. The automatic hammer is located on the outer edge of the movement. The layout is exquisite. The gorgeous decoration makes this automatic movement perfect.
Double Tourbillon 5347
   Breguet’s classic and sophisticated series of double tourbillon watches is the result of years of research and development by Breguet. Three patented mechanisms have escorted this watch, and its design aims to pursue extreme precision. Classique Grandes Complications 5347 watch with dual rotary tourbillon modulation, driven by a manual winding mechanical movement. The 44 mm mercerized platinum case, the outer ring is perfectly combined with the rotating plate and the tourbillon wheel frame, is an outstanding work of cutting-edge technology and exquisite design.

Classique Grandes Complications 5347
   The independently operated tourbillon is mounted on the rotating central plate, and through the differential wheel coupling, the watch is driven to rotate once in 12 hours. The differential device transmits the standard speed of the tourbillon to the rotating central plate and the time display. The actual speed of the watch is the standard rate of two tourbillons, which is twice the normal movement. The calculation is not bad, which can offset the isochronous error of the oscillator when the watch is upright. The hour is displayed by the watch hands connected to two tourbillon modulations, and the minutes are displayed by the central standard hands.

How To Choose Rolex Sports Models, See What My Watch Friends Buy

Rolex should be the most popular watch brand among consumers. Basically, all series have many loyal fans. So for watch buyers, if the first watch is going to buy a Rolex, which one should be chosen. Today, we have sorted out the watch purchase activities of the Rolex section of the Watch House Forum to see which styles are the most sought-after items in 2017.

Watch Comments: Greenwich’s ‘Pepsi Circle’ watch is also a watch that is loved by table friends. Its black and blue two-color bezel is also known as ‘Pepsi Circle’ by table friends. Functionally, Greenwich is obviously more suitable for business travelers who travel frequently. It can display the time in the second time zone, and it can also display the time in the third time zone by rotating the bezel. The Rolex 3186 self-winding movement is equipped with a Parachrom hairspring, which effectively protects the watch from impact or temperature changes. It is constructed in the same way as all oyster movements and has unrivalled reliability.
In summary: These three Rolex watches are the three most purchased watches in the Rolex section of the Watch House in 2017. I personally do not recommend following suit to buy the ‘Green Water Ghost’ watches. The high premium is only a temporary phenomenon. This phenomenon occurs because Rolex is rumored to reduce steel watch output this year. The actual situation is that no one knows exactly how large Rolex’s steel watch output is, nor is there any news of a reduction.

TUDOR Pelagos watches symbolize the lifestyle of water adventures

Tudor Pelagos (Leadership) is a masterpiece of professional watches, but also symbolizes the lifestyle of life under water. Pelagos is one of the most complete traditional mechanical diving watches on the market. In 2015, this classic watch was revolutionary, using a movement manufactured by Tudor and adding an additional color, reminiscent of the most brilliant era in the history of the brand’s diving watches. In 1926, Tudor was made by Hans. Founded by Hans Wilsdorf. In 2015, North Flag and Pelagos (Leadership) became the first Tudor watches equipped with the brand’s self-developed movements, allowing the brand to take a big step forward in independent and independent production.
A tradition of superior quality and performance
Traditionally, the watchmaking culture of Tudor has always put the quality of production and the comfort of the wearer first. The brand has always used the movements of Swiss suppliers to achieve precision and reliability. The research and development of the new Tudor calibre still maintains a high level, enabling the brand’s products to reach unprecedented high levels. TUDOR Pelagos’ new movement, the Tudor MT5621, is equipped with a two-way automatic winding pendulum, which provides a powerful power reserve of up to about 70 hours. No need to rewind. In addition to the functions of the hour, minute and central seconds, a jump date window is provided at 3 o’clock. The Tudor MT5621 movement has a beating frequency of 28,800 times per hour or 4 hertz. It is controlled by a balance wheel equipped with a silicon balance spring, and is fixed on both sides by cross plates to enhance its shock resistance. This movement is the first Tudor product to be certified by the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Center (COSC).

TUDOR Pelagos series watches, with matte middle case, sandblasted details and matte colors, can create sharp contrast even without using light and shadow

In addition to technological innovation, Tudor Pelagos has added a color to the surface, outer ring and rubber strap. In addition to the original matte black style, a matte blue version is now available for selection. Matte blue has been the representative color of Tudor diving watches since 1960, and it is also the color used by the French Navy for their divers in their Tudor Submariner watches. The name ‘PELAGOS’ is printed on the surface, and there are two lines below: ‘CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED’ (certified by the Observatory), which means that the movement is certified by the Observatory Precision Timepiece.
Wonderful professional watch
The history of Tudor diving watches is closely linked to professionals working underwater, especially the navies around the world. The brand’s watches for diving have evolved over the years to take into account user needs. In keeping with this tradition of continuous innovation, the brand has carried out a number of live tests around the world during the development of the Pelagos model, especially on Lake Geneva near Tudor headquarters.

Tudor Pelagos watch with Tudor MT5621 movement

TUDOR Pelagos guarantees water resistance up to 500 meters and is equipped with a helium exhaust valve, which is an essential device to protect the watch during ‘saturated’ diving. When divers use saturation diving, in order to alternate between seabed activities and cabin rest, they need to breathe a mixture of helium and oxygen, avoiding long-term decompression during the entire mission. Because helium is the smallest gas particle in existence, even if the watch is waterproof, helium can penetrate the watch after a certain period of time. Therefore, the helium exhaust valve allows the gas infiltrating the watch to be released during the decompression phase at the end of the task without damaging the watch. The helium exhaust valve not only eliminates this excessive pressure, but also protects the watch from damage.
Legible
Great diving tools must be clear and easy to read, and TUDOR Pelagos’ design features are meeting this standard. The watch is inlaid with square hour markers and coated with a large amount of luminous material to ensure sharp contrast. The watch is especially equipped with the blue hour marker, because blue is the last color recognizable in the depths of the ocean in the spectrum. Pelagos’ hands, especially the hour hand, are uniquely squared, allowing the wearer to distinguish between the hour and minute hands at a glance. Collectors call this design a ‘snowflake’, a signature feature of the diving watch produced by Tudor since 1969. Also for clarity and readability, the scales emit blue light on the ceramic unidirectional rotating outer ring ceramic word ring. Even in an extremely harsh field of vision, the display on the watch can be read.

Patented automatic buckle
Pelagos also stands out from the crowd with its titanium strap. This strap is equipped with a steel discount. This discount has a built-in self-adjusting spring device developed and patented by Tudor. Since the wetsuit will be compressed and compressed in the deep sea, it will also expand when the diver returns to the surface, and this clever device allows the strap to adjust itself when diving. In addition, Pelagos comes with a rubber strap. This rubber strap also has an extension system that can be easily adjusted for diving in any situation. Titanium was chosen for the exterior components of the Tudor Pelagos because it is extremely lightweight and only about 60% of the weight of stainless steel. In addition, titanium is also resistant to seawater corrosion. The fully matte and matte appearance gives a functional and practical feel. Its technological color style reveals the high-tech and professional characteristics of the watch. Continuing the design style of external components, the Tudor MT5621 movement driving Pelagos is also matte. Through a wide range of sandblasting, adding details or the effect of sun light, and a central pendulum, it highlights the precision and reliability of this movement, and its craftsmanship.
