Hermes Watches And Clocks Selected For The 2013 Geneva Haute Horlogerie Awards

Yesterday, the GPHG will hold its first Beijing tour exhibition at Beijing Art 8. In this award, three Hermes watches have been selected, namely: Arceau suspended time 38mm rose gold diamonds selected for women’s complex watches, Pendentif Boule selected for best women’s watches, Arceau H Cube selected for best arts and crafts Watch.

      Arceau Le Temps Suspendu 38mm

 The Arceau Le temps suspendu watch gives you the opportunity to experience rest and rest without any time constraints. When the button on the 38mm case is pressed, the hour and minute hands stop at 12 o’clock. The time was thus erased from the dial, derailed from standard time, and moved invisibly at the same time. Press the button again and the time is back on track and it works as usual. Eyes are locked on the small 24-second dial in real time, and the vivid hands run counterclockwise endlessly, mocking the passage of time in a unique way. Behind the rotation of hands like ballet toes hides a set of smart mechanisms developed exclusively by Emma Ren to direct the movement of this unique and complex watch function. The movement has two patents-one is its own building structure, and the other is a gear that reduces movement-an additional module of the homemade movement H1912. The run-time and stop-time modes are synchronized with two column wheels: one for the hours and the other for the minutes. This 360-degree flyback hour and minute function makes time disappear instantly, but the movement of the movement is not suspended. The fourth gear runs in the opposite direction, allowing time to advance without interruption, and is displayed on the movement indicator of the movement.

 Arceau H Cube

 There are simple materials in the world that are rich sources of inspiration for craftsmen. Straw is exactly one of them. On the dial of the Arceau watch, the watchmaker uses miniature marquetry to create a representative pattern in bright tones, which is eye-catching. Straw is an extraordinary material: the stem of rye is long and smooth, and the available parts need to be carefully selected. Plant species planted on a single cultivated land, carefully harvested by hand, and then dyed. After successive dyeing and soaking, the wheat straw is air-dried, showing a vivid and detailed hue, mixed with low-key light. The craftsman combines the color, shadow and fiber direction of each straw to create a straw inlay process that becomes a pattern on the dial. The craftsmen cut each part with incomparable standards, assembled them one by one in an unimaginably small space, and reshaped the perspective trick of the H Cube pattern. The originality of the design and the work of Henri d’Origny Arceau watches have the same magic. The geometric pattern on the dial is based on a round platinum case with a diameter of 41 mm, with irregular lugs, and is driven by the H1837 self-made movement. The movement of the movement can be seen through the transparent sapphire case back on the case back.

 Pendentif Boule

 Hermès’ archives are full of surprises, witnessing the glory of the past, and containing vast creativity and wisdom. A buttonhole timepiece that recently re-appeared inspired Hermès watchmakers to create a precious timepiece like a gem: Pendentif Boule. The small ball rolls and rotates at will, and shines as the diamond on the body blooms. More than 480 diamonds are distributed on the small ball timepiece, decorating the center and crown of the ball case, hiding the precise layout inside the platinum case. The dome case back at Hermès Watch & Clock Workshop features leather appliqués, highlighting the brand’s original sewing technology and harness manufacturing technology-the world’s true craft treasure. The transparent sapphire crystal on the surface interprets the three-dimensional roundness of the timepiece, protecting the natural mother-of-pearl dial, and the dial is decorated with fine round patterns to polish the hour indexes. Pendentif Boule is inlaid with dark blue matte crocodile leather on the back, with a white gold necklace or in different shades of leather.

Montblanc Nicholas Kies Hollow Dial Single Button Chronograph

The star Nicholas · Kesh hollowed-out dial single-button chronograph is a tribute to Nicolas Rieussec, the father of timekeeping technology, in honor of the successful invention of chronograph instruments more than 200 years ago Merit. Montblanc is a leader in writing culture, and naturally has a special interest in chronographs. The brand has also created many excellent chronographs over the years, because the word chronograph is composed of the ancient Greek chronos (time) and graphein (writing). composition. Montblanc Nicolas Kiess hollow-out dial single-button chronograph is not only the striking star of Montblanc’s new watch, but also stands side by side with other top watch manufacturers. No matter the design and technical achievements, it is a rare boutique. . The function mode of this chronograph is unique, which is very different from the general chronograph’s center chronograph seconds hand and independent timer layout: the dial’s two chronograph dials have fixed scale hands to indicate the seconds and minutes.
Nicholas Case’s chronograph is equipped with two chronograph dials with fixed scale hands on the surface. The chronograph program is started. The scale hands squeeze ink drops onto the dial to measure a specific time segment. This technology was obtained in 1822 patent. Montblanc draws inspiration from Kaiser’s inventions, complemented by contemporary design interpretations, to achieve last year’s star Nicholas Kaiser single-button chronograph, presenting masterpieces of timepieces for watch collectors. This year’s hollow dial chronograph model is based on last year’s work and incorporates new ideas, letting watch fans see the movement of the movement.
Mystery of see-through movement
The two chronograph dials of the star Nicholas Kays single-button chronograph are connected by a bridge splint, which looks like a beautiful smile. This year’s Open Date skeleton model is even more open-minded. The chronograph dial, calendar dial and some dials have been deliberately hollowed out, allowing the viewer to see the gear assembly, the Geneva stripe trimmed movement bottom plate, and the core of the timing system in the middle of the chronograph dial and calendar dial Components-vertical clutch plates, etc.
Classic timing concept, a new interpretation of contemporary
The star-studded Nicholas Kays hollow dial single button chronograph equipped with the MB R110 manual winding movement was born from last year’s MB R100 movement, with standard time and calendar dial display, the timing system is equipped with innovative column wheel and vertical clutch disc device ; The single button is set at 8 o’clock, this arrangement is very practical, not only to avoid accidental pressing, but also to facilitate the operation of the left thumb. An offset-type hour and minute dial with Arabic numerals showing standard time surrounds a skeleton calendar, and a fixed red triangle at 12 o’clock indicates the date of the day. Another practical function is that the hour hand and calendar can be quickly adjusted back and forth regardless of the position of the minute hand; the dual barrel design has a power reserve of approximately 72 hours, and the power reserve display at the bottom of the movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back.

18K rose gold case is made by traditional freeze-stamping technology, using a pressure of several tons to gradually squeeze a piece of solid gold into the ideal case shape, the workmanship is fine and flawless.
