Vacheron Constantin Metiers D’ Art Explorer Explorer Watch

The first limited edition watch series launched by Vacheron Constantin in memory of the great explorer confirms the firm determination of this traditional Geneva watch pioneer to inherit the most important spiritual cornerstone of the brand: M & eacute; tiers d ‘ Art watchmaking ‘Art’ is a traditional watchmaking craft represented by. For more than 250 years, as the world’s oldest watch manufacturer, Vacheron Constantin has been on a mission to protect and convey the valuable life value of decorative arts, and further perfect this outstanding craftsmanship in watch works. In the process of constantly surpassing itself and pursuing excellent craftsmanship, Vacheron Constantin has again launched two new watches this year that are comparable to real masterpieces in terms of mechanics or aesthetics. The theme of the dial is adventure and vintage, and it is made of difficult and ancient high-temperature grand feu enamel. The patented built-in movement brings a refreshing time display. The birth of such an amazing treasure has to be attributed to the great explorers, thanking them for their immortal contributions to the development of humankind.

 Tribute to Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus

 Vacheron Constantin first launched two Explorer series commemorative watches in 2004, each featuring the Chinese Ming Dynasty explorer Zheng He who traveled across the Indian Ocean, and Magellan, who discovered the new strait and named after him. In 2008, Vacheron Constantin once again paid tribute to two world-renowned travellers, Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus. These two exquisite and exquisite watches are entirely handmade, embodying the patience, enthusiasm and hard work of the watchmakers, as well as the unremitting pursuit of perfection, adhering to the spirit of the Geneva loft craftsmen who the brand founders respected. Due to the complexity of the production process, each watch is limited to 60 pieces. Inheriting the genes of the M & eacute; tiers d’Art master series, the two watches have unique structures and precision device components, and reproduce the adventures of the great explorers on the specially processed dial, perfectly interpreting the The symbolic meaning of the series. We ca n’t use time to measure a wonderful mysterious journey. Only a few families carefully savour the reason. & Mdash; This is a legend.

 It is a difficult pioneering work to show the story of the world’s greatest explorers on the watch dial, which has strict and demanding requirements on technical and aesthetic composition. And Vacheron Constantin did just that. The high-temperature open flame colored enamel dial consists of two layers, which are partially overlapped. A map of the world is drawn on the upper level, recreating the historical footprint related to the explorer’s voyage route, and the lower dial is a 132-degree wide arc. The 12-hour digital scale moves clockwise in the fan-shaped minute dial of the lower dial, highlighting the most exquisite traditional watchmaking technology and truly amazing complexity.

Vacheron Constantin movement travelling in time & ldquo; ocean & rdquo;
 Bringing life to the M & eacute; tiers d’Art Explorer series is the stable Vacheron Constantin Cal.1126AT automatic winding mechanical movement. This patented movement, developed by Vacheron Constantin clock engineers, drives the time (hourly digital display) to follow the path of the explorer, pushing the watchmaking skills to the extreme. The core component of the watch is a highly reliable patented movement, which is driven by two highly precise devices and connected by the brand’s Maltese cross-shaped cam to drive two separate parts of the dial. Rotating crowns, positioning hands, and dials are all manufactured by Vacheron Constantin’s watchmakers to ensure a completely original time reading method. Hour crown wheel with three indicators, extended by an auxiliary device. Each hand has a four-hour dial, and the direction is indicated by a Maltese cross-shaped cam operation. The hour crown rotates in such a way that the auxiliary device with the corresponding hour number is arranged in the space between the two dials. The Maltese cross-shaped cam then shifts the corresponding digits into the gap, while the hour crown moves the digits from left to right on the minute scale of the lower dial with a time span of exactly one hour.

 In this way, the time can be accurately calculated. The hour number moves from the upper dial to the lower dial, and the hour scale is skillfully transformed into a symbolic indicator of the minute, which can be seen at a glance. This magical timekeeping effect is entirely based on a unique and delicate structure, which requires a lot of research and development work. This time journey across time & ldquo; the ocean & rdquo; strongly speaks of the long and difficult voyage that the great explorers have experienced to satisfy the craving for the unknown.

Long history high temperature open flame enamel craft

 High temperature open flame enamel occupies a pivotal position in the M & eacute; tiers d’Art Explorer series limited edition watch, which is one of the oldest and most important traditional craftsmanship in the fine watch industry. There are only a handful of artisans in this world who are proficient in this technique, and Vacheron Constantin has spared no effort in studying this technique. There is no doubt that this traditional craft is characterized by a high degree of complexity and precision. This enamel process starts with drawing outlines, coloring with dots with a fine-tipped brush, and drawing decorative patterns. Each step of applying colored glass filler requires extra care and accurate posture, and then the dial is heated in a kiln between 700 and 800 degrees Celsius.

 The finished enamel needs to be polished with sandpaper after cooling, and the movement must be gentle to avoid destroying the delicate effect of the enamel. During the enamel firing process, the pigments may change color and even shrink. Therefore, the skills and experience of the enamel artist play a decisive role. At the end of the firing process, the decorative pattern needs to be coated with a layer of translucent flux or a protective layer, and then placed in a high temperature of 900 degrees Celsius to complete the firing, followed by grinding and final polishing processes. Each new color means the same operation is repeated, so the dial may need to be fired more than 30 times before it can be formed.

 The difficulty of this ancient technique is obvious. The production rate of the high-temperature open flame enamel process is completely uncontrollable by its essence. Therefore, the works created by the masters with great pains may be wiped out in an instant. Especially during the cooling process, the enamel is very fragile and difficult to control, so it needs to be slowly cooled to room temperature very carefully to avoid fatal damage to the enamel due to the pressure caused by the sudden temperature drop. Any small mistake can lead to irreparable losses, forcing craftsmen to start from scratch.

M & eacute; tiers d’Art Explorer hand-crafted dial

 The upper and lower dials of the M & eacute; tiers d’Art Explorer series must be enameled at the same time to ensure that they are completely complementary: the same color, the same firing time, and the same gloss. Because this work is entirely handmade, every creation and every dial is a truly unique work of art. A little bit of cultivation and a little harvest, for the enamelist, means a nearly perfect work. Therefore, when this traditional craftsmanship is combined with watchmaking skills, a huge artistic charm will surely bloom. The enamel dial can be described as exquisite and exquisite, depicting the journey of the great explorer. The color changes of different routes are equally subtle, whether it is the pale blue sea or the orange land. The unbelievable masterpiece of Maple Jianping P craft.

Blancpain Launches The New L-evolution Double-track Flyback Chronograph Watch

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.

Talking About The Story Behind The Watch Brand Trademark

How do we identify a brand? By watch, CEO, slogan, or trademark (ie logo)? It’s not exact, in fact-the reason is simple, the above elements are always changing. Among them, there is another tendency to maintain stability, which is a trademark. A trademark is a brand’s visual identity, and sometimes even a core element of the brand itself.

Longines, with one exception
   Despite the importance of a trademark, it is generally unknown to the public. We can recognize, but not necessarily understand. With few pens and no excessive brushstrokes, trademarks must be able to convey brand positioning and even carry brand history. Take Longines as an example, ‘Longines’ and ‘Flying wing hourglasses’ have been around for 127 years!

   Longines became the earliest registered trademark brand of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and still in use today. CEO Walter von Känel claims that it has become ‘a symbol of coherence, perseverance and professionalism.’ However, the original purpose is actually more realistic: the hourglass is engraved on the watch movement to prevent it Impersonation.
Vacheron Constantin
   Longines is known for its consistency, but this is not the norm in the watchmaking industry. Many people think that the Maltese Cross has always been the symbol of Vacheron Constantin, but they are wrong-since its establishment in 1755, Vacheron Constantin’s trademark has changed more than 50 times, and most of them do not include the Maltese Cross.

   For many years, Vacheron Constantin has adopted the trademark of the United States Division, which is named HorseShoe. Another little-known fact is that for a long time, Vacheron Constantin owned a sub-brand called Trident, so we often see Tridents in the changing symbols.
Swatch Group’s careful addition
   Then again, there is nothing wrong with changing trademarks. Some are cautious, others are bold. For example, in Breguet, there has been only one change in trademarks in history. After the brand joined the Swatch Group, the signature of the master added two pointers, namely the famous ‘hollow apple’ or Breguet pointer.

   There are other cases: In 2000, Jacques Droe merged into the Swatch Group, and the brand trademark became the letter ‘JD’ and two star motifs. What is the reason? Symbol of the founder and his son. The story of Ruibao is similar. The letter ‘CRL’ in the trademark is not random and random, but an acronym for the name of the founder Gerd-Rüdiger Lang.
Constantly revised words
   Girard Perregaux has kept pace with the times, and with a series of different slogans, the wording of ‘Girard Perregaux’ is constantly being revised and changed. The brand has now reverted to ‘Haute horlogerie suisse depuis 1791’ (Swiss Fine Watchmaking began in 1791). A savvy observer may realize that this is the fusion of the previous ‘Fine watches since 1791’ and ‘Mechanics of time since 1791’. This word of constant revision is also unique in the watchmaking industry.

   For decades, marketing experts have recognized that (too) frequent trademark changes can affect brand legibility, especially in today’s highly competitive environment.

   Zenith has mentioned astronomical names for many years with a more or less lyrical design. After confirming the trademark of the single five-pointed star, it has not changed for decades. The emphasis on historical heritage is also reflected in Eterna. The five-dot trademark is reminiscent of the ball bearing automatic disc invented by the brand. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
