Announcement Of The Lange Brand’s Iconic Models

LANGE1 is the brand’s first watch in the new era, and has been the trademark of Lange for 25 years. Therefore, the watch factory specially produced 250 ’25thAnniversary’ 18K white gold limited edition watches to celebrate the anniversary of this award-winning timepiece. Features include a dark blue printed silver-white dial with embossed design, blue date numerals, an unveiled engraved Lange headquarters pattern, and hand-engraved balance wheel splints with blue lines.

 October 24, 1994 was the most important day in Lange’s modern history. On the same day, the company’s founder Walter Lange and his partner Günter Blümlein exhibited the first four watches of the new era at the Dresden Palace. LANGE1 is one of them. The eccentric design of the dial has caused heated discussions, and technologies such as a large calendar display and dual barrels have also been favored.

 A distinctive design is often seen as a slouch at first. Therefore, the work must overcome people’s inherent ideas to show its fascinating attitude, and LANGE1 is an example. The large calendar display and eccentrically designed dial layout complement each other with a beautifully decorated mechanical movement, which was considered by many in the mid-1990s to be an extraordinary move. But this unusual design attracted much attention from the outside world, and Lange became famous overnight.

 Lange’s return to the international stage of precision watchmaking in 1994 coincides with the anniversary of this historical moment. The brand presents a series of 18K white gold models in 2019, paying tribute to the important milestones of the LANGE1 watch series. Iconic elements are incorporated into each piece, such as a solid silver-white dial with dark blue numerals and hour markers, blue date numerals, and a blue alligator leather strap with coordinated tones and grey stitching.

 LANGE1 marks the beginning of the ’25thAnniversary’ series, which has hardly changed since 1994. Among them, the movement fully reflects the technical development of the watch. The L121.1 manual-winding movement released in 2015 is equipped with a precision instant jump large date display and free-running Lange balance spring, plus a large cam fixed balance wheel, ensuring accurate and reliable speed. This carefully modified movement is the same as LANGE1’s first L901.0 movement, which also uses a dual barrel, with a power reserve of up to 72 hours, combined with the classic Lange quality mark. Among them, it is worth mentioning the 3/4 plywood made of untreated German silver, the gold sleeve with eight screws and the hand-carved balance plywood. The balance splint is specially engraved with the large calendar ’25’, which has become a major symbol of the 25th anniversary. For the first time, the sculptural pattern incorporates blue line design, creating a particularly sharp contrast effect.

 Limited to 250 LANGE1 ’25thAnniversary’ watches, another feature is that it is carved and carved with solid 18K white gold. The sculpture depicts the Lange headquarters in 1873, and combines the names of Walter Lange and Günter Brulen, and the embossed ’25YEARSLANGE1′.

The So-called Personality Is The Independent Spirit Tempered By Time. Oris Grand Crown Analog Calendar 80th Anniversary Brand New

In the early 20th century, at the nascent stage of the development of the world aviation industry, Oris began manufacturing various types of aviation pocket watches. In 1917, Oris introduced the brand’s first aviation watch. In 1938, the iconic Oris crown was launched. Over the next few decades, the large crown series continued to innovate, bringing pilots many innovative features and practical designs. In the 1980s, Oris succeeded in breaking through the quartz crisis by insisting on the spirit of independent mechanical watchmaking. The large crown series witnessed the brand’s turn. So far, Oris’s watchmaking history is closely linked to the history of world aviation, and the classic large crown series has also become the brand’s time symbol through 80 years.

1938, the first big crown watch

   While inheriting the classic elements, the new series of Oris Large Crown Analogue Watches has undergone a comprehensive upgrade in style and design. The classic coin-shaped bezel of the original large crown series and the unique pointer calendar display are retained. The new Oris crown has a smoother outline, the lugs are thinner than previous models, and the crown design Fine-tuned, the overall look is more sophisticated and modern, full of a sense of time, and there are two sizes of 36mm and 40mm. The young urban population advocates individuality and self-expression. The new Oris crown is nostalgic in style and modern, and it is more in line with the aesthetics and needs of the modern urban men and women. It will also redefine ‘big ‘Crown’.

Sapphire ‘bubble mirror’ is the perfect combination of nostalgia and technology

   The new Grand Crown series is available in stainless steel and bronze. In color matching, the designer took inspiration from Le Corbusier’s architectural color collection, light green and fresh, gray blue and melancholic, at the same time recognizable, and there is no lack of sense of history. In addition, the new large crown uses sapphire ‘bubble mirror’ for the first time. Compared with the previous acrylic watch mirror, the convex arc of the double-sided arched sapphire ‘bubble mirror’ shows a retro charm half a century ago. The performance and texture of sapphire gives a new touch.

Oris Large Crown Analog Calendar 80th Anniversary Special 40mm Bronze Green Dial Watch Red Analog Calendar Needle

   In order to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the large crown analog calendar, Oris launched a 40mm large crown analog bronze green dial watch. Unlike the 36mm bronze style white calendar hands, the 40mm bronze green plate style uses red hands, with a pale green dial, which is slightly playful in harmony. The strap is made of dark brown vegetable tanned leather, which further highlights the warm texture of the watch. Coupled with the use of bronze material, the nostalgia of the large crown watch is further released. What’s more worth mentioning is that with the passage of time, the appearance of bronze will gradually form an oxide layer, and the color and texture of the oxidation are closely related to the humidity of the environment and the pH of the wearer. In the end, every bronze watch will be as unique as its owner.

Oris Large Crown Analog Calendar 80th Anniversary Special 40mm Bronze Green Dial Watch Red Analog Calendar Needle

   The rapid development of the times, technology makes modern life change rapidly. When ‘fast’ has become the norm in people’s lives, those who walk on foot and adhere to the traditional artisan spirit and time wrestling are particularly attractive. This is the case for Oris watchmakers who focus on time, and so is the Lot Sixty One coffee shop in the Netherlands, which focuses on the concept of slow life. For Lot Sixty One, achieving a long-lasting cup of coffee is much more than simply pressing a button. There is no computer, no stylized production process, and control of coffee roasting, all based on the vision and smell of experienced roasters. Respecting tradition and continuously innovating, Lot Sixty One retains the most positive taste for those who really love coffee, exuding the unique personality and charm of rare craftsmen of this era. The Oris large crown watch is also like this mellow cup of coffee: it is both traditional and modern, and it is worth savouring with lips and teeth; it condenses the attention of the craftsman and is worth slowly feeling.

Dutch coffee roasting expert Lot Sixty One relies on traditional manufacturing techniques and a sensitive nose

   Oris has a 114-year history of the brand. In the long past, Oris has always adhered to the brand concept passed down through generations, strictly adhered to Swiss watchmaking standards, and maintained an independent and free watchmaking spirit. The launch of the new large crown series is another effort for the brand to design stylish, innovative, practical and beautiful watches. Mr. Rolf Portmann, Honorary Chairman of Oris Brand, said: ‘Over the years, the large crown analog date watch has stood the test of time and is constantly being introduced. The large crown has become the most distinctive model of Oris , Symbolizing the vitality of the Oris brand. ‘In the future, Oris will also adhere to the’ Go Your Own Way ‘brand proposition, bringing a more personal and modern interpretation to those who choose Oris watches.

Bulgari’s New Masterpiece Octo Series Creates A Classic Men’s Watch

Octo watches are neither round nor square, but they are a perfect blend of the two to create the most recognizable octagonal design, and to build the natural beauty and geometric aesthetics of a round place . The octagonal structure of the watch and the round bezel complement each other, showing a bold and delicate style in a pure classic art tradition. The OCTO series with clear personality and far-reaching significance is the classic of Bulgari establishing men’s watches, foretelling the future trends, and will surely become the focus of celebrities and elegant ladies. Octagonal design, all things vocabulary
     OCTO’s unique octagonal shape contains many cultural implications. In medieval Europe, alchemists believed that the square and the circle were a perfect imagery expression, just like the relationship between the earth and the universe: the square represents humanity, and the circle symbolizes the connection between the gods and humans. The octagon with a square and a circle has been widely regarded as a totem of wealth from ancient times to today, symbolizing balance, harmony, strength and eternity.
     Octagonal structures were widely found in ancient Western architecture. One of the most representative is the Castel del Monte on Italy’s one-cent Euro coin. This majestic and majestic building was built by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II in the 13th century in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. There is a metaphor of ‘temple of learning’. At the beginning of its design and construction, Frederick II was deeply inspired by the octagonal Jerusalem dome of the mosque and the Carolingian octagonal building of the Aachen Cathedral.
     In the East, thousands of miles away, the octagon is also the original source of ancient Chinese history, civilization, and belief. In the ‘I Ching’ edited from the 1st century BC, the eight symbols of ‘gossip’ have been used to represent the eight phenomena in nature, and then the law of change of people and events has been deduced to achieve the unity of heaven and man. In Chinese architecture, the combination of square and circle is also used to symbolize the relationship between heaven and earth, gods and humans. For example, Beijing’s Temple of Heaven, built in the 15th century, with the south wall as a square and the north wall as a circle, echoes the essence of the traditional Chinese universe concept of ‘Tianyuan place’. The Chinese thinking model based on the yin-yang rule has also run through from ancient times to the present.
A perfect fusion of mathematical infinity and the universe
     The OCTO series is named after the number 8 in Latin. The graphic design of the octagon of the watch is translated into numbers and has a profound meaning. 8. In Christianity, it represents the union of infinity (god) and finite (human); in some mysterious theories, it represents horizontal and vertical infinity, or the basis of cosmic power. In addition, 8 is equivalent to the infinite theory of mathematicians, the eternal immutability, and the total view of the universe symbolizing China (I Ching). In Asian culture, it is the embodiment of prosperity and strength.
     The structure of this series of watches is the essence of the above symbolic content, which has gone beyond the pure functions of the watch. In the formal and simple design of the watch, the exquisite and complex texture is revealed everywhere. On the one hand, it conveys the value of balance, perfection, immortality and eternity, and on the other hand, it also displays professional clockwork.
     The OCTO watch is infused with a modern aesthetic style. The time reading design is low-key and classic, providing traditional use functions. In terms of shape, it boldly transformed the traditional design proportions to create a unique harmony and balance. The new look is pure and powerful. Through the extreme elegant graphic design, it perfectly reflects the value of the Bulgari men’s watch.
Ingenious case and movement
     A meaningful watch naturally needs to be accompanied by an excellent ‘movement’. OCTO’s Calibre BVL193 is a unidirectional rotating automatic winding movement. The automatic disc adopts ball bearings to ensure optimal winding and is equipped with two sets of barrels. The Calibre BVL movement has a diameter of 11.5 law minutes and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations (4 Hz) per hour. It provides a power reserve of 50 hours, giving the watch enhanced long-term isochronism, stable time and accuracy. The finished parts of the movement, including the rotating shaft and the satin-finished drive polishing gear, are of excellent quality.
     The watch adopts elegant black lacquer and polished dial made by Bvlgari, fully uses traditional pointer display, and integrates a large number of aesthetic characteristics of OCTO lines. Bvlgari’s new self-made OCTO case consists of 110 facets, and the extremely complicated and delicate processes are not difficult to imagine. The three major constructions of the middle case, bezel and spiral back cover are based on a single design criterion of “excellence”. The watchmakers have worked extremely carefully and continuously before assembly. The case has a unique structure, sharp cuts, clean lines, and polished and satin-finished treatments, full of imposing and self-evident power.
     The OCTO series will become the classic of Bulgari men’s watches, interpreting a clear and single message: beyond traditional standards, stand out from many models, predicting future trends.

This Love Story Will Not Get Tired After Listening 10,000 Times

The story happened one night in the most beautiful city in the world. In this century-old city, a couple set off to meet. On the backlit enamel dial, the LePontdesAmoureux watch sets the scene for the couple: their romantic walk in the courtroom brings the two parties closer and closer until they finally meet. This story happened in Paris 10 years ago, and today, new love stories are still written in the long river of time.

Van Cleef & Arpels LadyArpelsPontdesAmoureux watch

 This is one of thousands of love stories that happened in the romantic capital of Paris. A hundred years ago, a moving carol of love unveiled the poems of VanCleef & Arpels and love … Estelle Arpels and Alfred VanCleef concluded a beautiful Marriage.

 A hundred years later, Van Cleef & Arpels moved the story that happened in Paris to the design of high-end timepieces-LadyArpelsPontdesAmoureux. In 2010, Van Cleef & Arpels launched the first Valentine’s Bridge watch, which caused a great response at the time. People realized for the first time that the original interpretation of time still had such a poetic method, and was deeply moved by the love story of this lover’s bridge.

 It is known that Van Cleef & Arpels may stay in the impression of the fine jewelry family. In fact, they also joked that ‘Van Cleef & Arpels watches are jewellery with timers’. Adhering to the poetic outlook on life and values, Van Cleef & Arpels has brought us many poetic timepieces.

 Van Cleef & Arpels logo inspiration comes from Fontaine Plaza

 In 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels settled in Fontenay Square. Establishing an indissoluble bond with high jewelry with the surnames of the two, opened the first chapter of the century legend of the family. Since then, the symbol ‘&’ has been transformed into an eternal connection, symbolizing the delicate inspiration and extraordinary design given to the family by these couples, together showing the poetic beautiful love, which makes Van Cleef & Arpels ( VanCleef & Arpels) is unique. Today, the family’s watch works still use time to interpret moving emotions.

 It is precisely because of the continuous exploration of poetry that in 2019, the brand launched a new Valentine’s Bridge watch, which still uses this famous love story, but has made many adjustments in details.

1. Master craftsmanship on the dial

 The dial is made by experienced watchmakers who master the following master craftsmanship in the workshop:

 The new Valentine’s Bridge dial real shot

 How long does it take to make a dial? It takes about 40 hours to make the dial of a LadyArpels Pontdes Amoureux watch (34 hours for the old model), the four season series with multi-color ink enamel and micro-painting process and Jour watch take longer.

Dial drawing

 Van Cleef & Arpels has used a large number of ancient enamel techniques in the watch series. Since the 21st century, the family has revived these ancient memories, some of which can be traced back to ancient times. These different craftsmanships are given new vitality. They are combined with each other on the square dial to tell a romantic and beautiful story. Enamel is an art of color and roasting. Each craftsman can customize the enamel color by themselves. They select the silicon powder (which determines the transparency of the material) and the pigment, and the final color is the best color effect.

Multicolor ink enamel

 Ink enamel originated from Limoges in the 16th century. Using two-tone enamel, you can create stunning light and shade effects. First, apply a very dark enamel to the background and carefully polish it to get the perfect smooth texture. The craftsman then used brushes or fine needles to draw the landscape, using a white powder enamel called ‘Blancde Limoges’ to successfully transition from the lightest to the darker areas. After 8 to 10 consecutive firings, a gradual effect will appear, making the dial mysterious.

Enamel miniature painting

 The 16th to 18th centuries were the heyday of miniature painting art, and only a handful of artisans mastered this craft: it required patience, meticulousness and long-term professional training in art.

 Carved and carved

 Carving is a traditional watchmaking technique, which can make the dial or case bottom case decoration with embossed and layered effects. The craftsmen carefully carved the overall outline in white gold and kept improving until the hero and different details became elegant and light.

2.New on-demand kiss animation

 
 Seasons change, romance lasts forever, and young lovers can meet at any time of the day as needed.

The watchmaker is commissioning the assembly
 In order to allow this couple to kiss more freely, unlike the old model, the new Valentine’s Bridge can be animated according to the needs of the kiss, instead of waiting until midnight and noon at noon every day. This meets the needs of users to play and appreciate to a certain extent, and it can be said to be a more intimate design.

3. New automatic winding movement

 I have to say a few words about the movement. In the past, when we looked at other models, the design of the dial and the design of the movement of the watch were often distinguished separately, but Van Cleef & Arpels was not. Ms. LauraLai, Managing Director of China, said that for Van Cleef & Arpels, the development of the movement is a means of storytelling, not a movement for the movement itself.

The new movement developed exclusively for Van Cleef & Arpels has a power reserve of up to 36 hours.

Van Cleef & Arpels self-winding ValfleurierQ020
 The family uses a new self-winding mechanical movement (ValfleurierQ020), equipped with modules specially developed for Van Cleef & Arpels. This new component is equipped with on-demand animation capabilities. The components were developed by a Swiss organization affiliated with Richemont Group, which specializes in the design and manufacture of high-quality movements.

The details of the parts still use a poetic interpretation

 Tuning the system (activated by a button) causes the device to start animation. Even if the watch is not wound, the animation can still be presented.

Movement details

 The couple will pause for a few seconds (3 seconds on average) before meeting and kissing. The pause gives the two a chance to observe each other well before reuniting. When they meet at noon or midnight, they kiss for about 3 seconds. At this moment, time will pause and the hands will return to 12:03.

4. High jewelry bracelet

 The new high jewelry bracelet uses gold carving and other techniques, and the pattern echoes the season of the dial. (The high jewelry bracelet cannot be replaced.)

Gem Selection

 As a family of jewellery, Van Cleef & Arpels is very careful when selecting, matching and setting gems. All gems are carefully selected in strict accordance with the same high standards as jewelry works. Diamonds and colored sapphires are selected according to the original design drawings. And manganese aluminum garnet.

 Gem setting

 Gem setting adds a touch of touch to the mastery of watchmaking, sculpting and enamel masters, continuing the tradition of fine jewelry. Diamonds, colored sapphires and manganese aluminum garnets make the four seasons of the LadyArpelsPontdesAmoureux more dazzling and gorgeous.

5. Hidden details

Case carving details

 Love is unwavering and meets across four seasons. The lovers on the arch bridge, because of the change of dress in the four seasons, the details, even more ingenuity. The gold carving and enamel on the sapphire crystal mirror the design of the dial, and the back is engraved with exquisite patterns, echoing the touching love song on the dial.

Van Cleef & Arpels Love Bridge Watch

 For Van Cleef & Arpels, time is not just about the seconds that are about to elapse. It gives time more meaning, and it tries to guide the wearer through every ordinary or extraordinary moment in a more unique and poetic way. In other words, Van Cleef & Arpels is just writing a time poem. It knows that time is only part of life, and even if we chase minute by minute and try to keep it, we cannot escape the fleeting fate. If you ca n’t save time, you can record it in a better way. This is the answer to Van Cleef & Arpels to time and to clocks.

 Today, the new Valentine’s Bridge is about to meet us. It is the perfect fusion of watches and jewellery, and also a work of love and time. We don’t have standard answers about love and time. Maybe just like this pair of lovers in Paris, we accompany each other through every season, day and night. The brand also launched a men’s lover’s bridge watch for men this time, which means that they hope you can pair with your lover.
