To celebrate the first Super Trofeo Asian Super Challenge held at Fuji Speedway in Japan, Blancpain and Automobili Lamborghini Japan (Lamborghini Japan Branch) recently held a grand event in Cité du Temps Ginza, Ginza, Tokyo And launched the new L-evolution Split Seconds Flyback Chronograph.

    Blancpain’s new chronograph uses a 43mm frosted white or red gold case with a carbon fiber bezel and dial. The dial’s background highlights the oversized red digital hour markers. The large date window at 6 o’clock shows the numbers. 9 A small chronograph dial at the o’clock position. At 8 o’clock, the case with an oil-like cover is equipped with a chronograph button mold. Pressing the chronograph button activates the dial’s dual-second chronograph function. At this time, the second chase hand stops and the sweep-second chronograph second hand runs independently; With the same button, the second chase hand will quickly catch up with the front sweeping chronograph second hand and continue to run synchronously. Through the sapphire caseback, you can peek into the elegantly decorated Calibre 69F9 self-winding movement. This movement consists of 409 parts set with 44 jewel bearings and is equipped with column wheels to ensure precise control of the buttons. At the same time, the equipped vertical disc clutch effectively prevents unnecessary jittering of the chronograph second hand when the chronograph function is activated. Power reserve is up to 40 hours. With black Alcantara strap.

Orion Quiet And Precise

There is only such a watch in my mind. Maybe I can only describe her with simplicity. I use the most basic hand-winding movement and leather strap without excessive modification, and even omit the numbers. Scale, who would she be?

 After studying various brands and models, I discovered NOMOS and identified her as the watch in my mind. From knowing to knowing, from knowing to falling for it, I did not give myself many reasons. When I browsed the NOMOS website, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is a series of typical Bauhaus-style works. It is difficult to describe or describe in too many languages. My understanding is that too many modifications may not be the true meaning of Bauhaus. It is amazing to interpret each series. With a tiny space on the wrist, NOMOS can play the Bauhaus element to the fullest. Maybe you will never like NOMOS, maybe you will not be able to extricate yourself because NOMOS is so pure.

 The curve of ORION is the inspiration of the NOMOS-ORION series. The elegant curve and exquisite craftsmanship made the ORION series. The 309 became my final choice. I think it is because of the small three-pin. The first thing she saw was Quiet, I barely notice her running, looking away, time seems to be still for her. It is placed in the palm of the hand. The entire dial is designed with small three-pins. The slender blue-steel hands with wicker-shaped gold scales look extraordinary, and the back is polished with a fine alpha (alpha) movement. The current comprehensive error of visual inspection +5 seconds / day ( Many friends’Xiao Nuo is more accurate), NOMOS ‘adjustment is once again convincing, and secondly, the horse leather strap is light and comfortable to wear, suitable for all seasons.
