Fashion Pioneer At The Forefront Of The Times Beijing Watch Re-enacts ‘one Type Watch’ Accompanying Around

In the social era of people and clouds, mavericks are dazzling like pearls in the deep sea. They are self-confident and independent, and dare to express their true identity; they are pioneers who adhere to the essence of the East; they advocate classics, and interpret ‘classic’ in a more fashionable and modern way. Rather than withdrawing from it, the Beijing watch re-enacts the “type 1 watch” to continue the classics of the era, highlighting the distinctive self-style of the watch wearer.

‘A type watch’ is the first watch launched by the Beijing brand in 1958, leading the trend of an era, and also represents the strength and status that it has since its inception; replicating the first watch of the Beijing brand ‘ ‘A watch’ pays tribute to the pioneering spirit that dates back to 1958 and continues to push the brand forward.

Ahead of time, achieve classics

Since its establishment in 1958, Beijing Watch has always focused on the production of highly complex movements and customization of high-end watches. The pioneering spirit that was born differently has continued to promote the brand’s progress with the change of the times. In the year of establishment, under the impetus of Peng Zhen, the mayor of Beijing at the time, 21 watchmaking pioneers combined excellent and exquisite skills with exquisite aesthetic design to develop the first batch of 17 ‘type 1 watches’. Since then, the watchmaking process of Beijing Watch has begun. The ‘type I watch’ has smooth and thin lines, with gold dial and pin, and is extremely exquisite, leading the trend of an era. To this day, this watch is still a classic with full marks and is still loved by many people. Watch people looking for.

Beijing watch engraved ‘a type watch’

  In order to continue the pioneering spirit that has continuously promoted the brand’s development since 1958, Beijing Watch has launched a new replica ‘type I watch’ to create a timeless and unique fashion watch. The engraved ‘I-type watch’ has sharp contour lines and a thin and delicate bezel. The mirror surface made of classic acrylic glass has a slight arc, which is full of three-dimensional effect. On the silver dial, the gold-plated sword-shaped hands and the time scale complement each other. Each replica ‘type 1 watch’ has a unique number, and the bottom cover is engraved with the unique ‘BJ’ mark of Beijing Watch, which combines the symmetrical balance of the Forbidden City architectural aesthetics with the square pattern structure of the Chinese pattern aesthetics. A high-end watch with the ‘BJ’ mark has largely preserved the essence of hand-made, which is the embodiment of quality and value. In addition to the classic black cowhide strap, a crazy horseskin strap with a matte and fine-velvet texture is also distributed. With the passage of time, the special scratches on the strap will become brighter and incomparable.

Beijing table ‘Miyagi’ gift box

Adhering to the pioneering spirit of the brand since its inception, Beijing Watch has launched a replica type of ‘type 1 watch’ Miyagi gift box, which draws inspiration from minimalist oriental aesthetics and architecture, with selected paper materials, has a low-key luxury texture . Embossed with the Beijing watch brand logo on the front, the Tiananmen Tower and the gilded ‘BEIJING’ are combined, full of international fashion.

This is a ‘push-open’ box that breaks through the conventional ‘sky and earth cover’ opening method of the watch box. The hollow ‘L-shaped’ is taken from the minimalist connotation of ‘Less is more’, and it is also the ‘organ’ that opens the gift box.

On the right is the display of the ‘I-type watch’, a fashion and trend of an era, which is still a classic today; the black box lid on the left is printed with the dazzling Beijing brand logo, and the interior is divided into two layers. On the upper level, there is a delicate red Tiananmen brooch and crazy horse leather strap. The leather with a texture between matte and fine wool brings unexpected roughness. The lower level contains the identification of the watch and the instruction manual.

 On December 12th, the re-engraved ‘One Type Watch’ gift box will be released simultaneously in Beijing Watch counter, Tmall ‘Beijing Watch Flagship Store’ and JD.com ‘Beijing Watch Self-operated Flagship Store’!

2016 Top 10 Technology Breakthroughs In Watch And Clock Industry (Mid)

In 2016, the top 10 technological breakthroughs in the watch industry were ranked in no particular order.
04 Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrolab® balance
   The Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrolab® balance appeared for the first time nine years ago. Jaeger-LeCoultre used this balance wheel on the compress extreme lab concept table of the year. The H-shaped Gyrolab® balance, similar to an anchor, is completely different from any previous circular balance. According to Jaeger-LeCoultre, the specially shaped Gyrolab® balance brings many advantages to the movement’s operation. First, the weight of the non-circular Gyrolab® balance is greatly reduced, which brings great advantages to the energy management of the movement and reduces the power loss of the balance operation. At the same time, the Gyrolab® balance reduces aerodynamic resistance and improves the accuracy of watch movement. Can help the watch to reach the level of accuracy of the observatory. Jaeger-LeCoultre spent 7 years perfecting the performance of the new Gyrolab® balance and creating the possibility of mass production. Compared with ordinary balance wheels, the manufacturing process of Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrolab® balance wheels is more complicated. The production of conventional balance wheels involves 6 types of tools and equipment, and the balance wheel is cut and formed in 1 minute. Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrolab® balances require 14 types of equipment for 10-minute cutting. In addition, the Gyrolab® balance is adjusted by 4 gold weights with H-shaped edges.

Geophysic® Geophysical Observatory Series Watch Using Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrolab® Balance Wheel
   The reason why non-circular balance wheels have not been widely used for a long time is that the production process is complicated. Many watch factories are outsourced balance wheels and do not need to produce them by themselves. For the first time, Jaeger-LeCoultre put non-circular balance wheels into mass commercial manufacturing, creating a ‘miracle’ in the watch industry. The Gyrolab® balance was first equipped in the 770/772 movement of the Geophysic® series of watches in 2015. Two watches in this series, one with a jumping second and three hands, and one with a jumping seconds world all use the Gyrolab® balance wheel. It is undeniable that the application of Gyrolab® balance is a real technical achievement compared to jumping seconds. Since then, Jaeger-LeCoultre has used the Gyrolab® balance on the fourth-generation spherical tourbillon of the Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon this year. It can be seen that the Gyrolab® balance has been promoted. Obviously, making a product with a disruptive structure is nothing, because a few experimental products will not bring any change to the watch industry. The large-scale use of new technologies is the revolutionary product needed by the watch industry. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrolab® balance is a revolutionary product in the watch industry.

   Compared with the performance advantages brought about by the unique structure of Gyrolab® balance, many viewpoints believe that Gyrolab® balance will bring higher brand recognition to Jaeger-LeCoultre. Just like Omega’s coaxial escapement, the Gyrolab® balance will be the next generation of Jaeger-LeCoultre technology.
05 Breitling in Chronoworks® movement

   Breitling has completely eliminated the ruby ​​bearing in the moving wheel train of the Chronoworks® movement. Before that, it had never been heard and never appeared in the entire watch industry. The Breitling Chronoworks® movement is actually a concept version of the Breitling B01 movement, which applies the latest technology in the watch industry to this movement. For the first time, Breitling uses a ceramic main splint on a Chronoworks® movement. Breitling uses high-tech ceramics (hexagonal boron nitride) to make plywood. Ceramics have a self-lubricating property (no need to add lubricant). Because of this characteristic, ceramics are usually used to make ball bearings for automatic rotors in watch movements. The Breitling Chronoworks® movement uses a ceramic main splint to allow the gear shaft to run directly in the hole of the splint. Due to the very low coefficient of friction of the ceramic splint, it is not only necessary to place a jewel bearing on the gear shaft, nor to add a gear shaft oil. Due to the elimination of ruby ​​bearings on the running gear, the Chronoworks® movement uses only 37 gem bearings compared to the 47 gem bearings of the regular B01 movement.

Breitling Super Marine Culture Chronoworks® Chronograph
   To complement the new ceramic main splint, Breitling uses silicon gears on Chronoworks® movements. Everyone knows that the use of silicon to make silicon escapements is common in the watch industry, but the use of silicon to make the gears of the time train is another major innovation in Breitling’s Chronoworks® movement.

Breitling Chronoworks® movement (top) and the silicon gear in the movement, we can see that there are no gem bearings on the splint.
   In fact, silicon is very suitable for making gears. Both silicon escapements and silicon gears are manufactured using DRIE (Deep Reactive Ion Etching). One of the characteristics of silicon etching is that the surface of the etched part is abnormally smooth. This degree of smoothness to the nanometer level makes silicon parts very suitable for friction parts such as escapement wheels and forks, which cannot be achieved by traditional cutting methods. Because it is extremely smooth and has a very low coefficient of friction, there is no need to add oil for lubrication, which is a major technical achievement in modern watchmaking. The second, third, and fourth (second) wheels of Breitling’s Chronoworks® movement are silicon-made silicon gears. In other words, except for the head wheel of the barrel, the entire travel gear (plus escapement) is Made of silicon, the altar is rare.
06 Blancpain 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II watch

   Today, many watch factories have invested in the research and development of high-tech ceramics, and Blancpain is one of them. Different from the previous ceramic technology, various watch factories have adopted zirconium dioxide as the latest technical material for ceramic watch cases. Zirconia ceramic case has stronger hardness and changeable color than previous ceramic case. Blancpain’s latest 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II limited edition watch uses an all-ceramic blue case, which we have never seen before. Prior to Blancpain’s new limited edition of 50 噚, it is a challenge for the watch industry to make ceramics uniform and uniform in color when they are pigmented and have sufficient hardness. This is why the ceramic watches we usually see are white, grey and black. The problem is that if the mixed ceramic pigments are not completely colored or unevenly heated during the heating process, the ceramic watch case will fade and is irreparable. Although we can see more and more watches using colored ceramic bezels, such as Rolex, Tag Heuer and so on. However, very few watches currently use all-ceramic color cases. Please note that the case, crown and chronograph button of this Blancpain watch are all made of full blue ceramic.

Blancpain 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II Limited List
   Blancpain said that in order to achieve this full blue, the new limited edition 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II has added a new colorant and binder during the production process. Before curing the case, buttons, crown and other ceramic parts, the adhesive is heated at a low temperature. According to Blancpain, this technology has been developed for many years. This is a ceramic manufacturing technology we have never seen before. Blancpain’s new limited edition 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II chronograph has a diameter of 43.6 mm, a thickness of 15.25 mm, and a water resistance of 300 meters. The all-ceramic case has excellent scratch resistance and will never fade. Although the traditional ceramic case has the disadvantage of being fragile, it is easy to break. Blancpain’s latest ceramic technology has greatly improved the impact resistance of the 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II ceramic case, reaching a new technological height in the watch industry.

Blancpain’s Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II chronograph uses the F385 high-frequency self-winding flyback chronograph movement.
   Blancpain’s new limited edition 50 噚 Bathyscaphe Ocean Commitment II chronograph uses the F385 self-winding high-frequency flyback chronograph movement launched in 2014. It has a swing frequency of 36,000 times / hour, a power reserve of 50 hours, and a 12-hour flyback timer and calendar function. Through the case bottom, you can see a lot of technical characteristics of the movement and the marine protection logo carved on the 18K gold automatic tourbillon.
07 TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon Watch

   The entry threshold for the Swiss tourbillon is in the hands of TAG Heuer. TAG Heuer introduced the cheapest Swiss tourbillon watch at this year’s Basel Watch Fair, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T tourbillon watch. This tourbillon watch with chronograph function and observatory certification costs only 15,000 Swiss francs. In other words, this number is about 100,000 yuan. 100,000 yuan is basically the price of a steel shell Dayton in a specialty store. Even the price of 100,000 yuan can not even buy a gold dateJUST in the specialty store (41 mm with diamonds, the public price is more than 100,000). Now I buy a tourbillon with the price of a steel watch, and it also comes with timekeeping. It is still certified by the observatory. I have nothing to say except to startled my chin.

TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon Watch
   Of course, I can understand the tourbillon watch at such an amazingly low price. More automated production and reduced labor costs (Switzerland’s high labor costs are one of the reasons for the high price of watches), the modular movement, the use of universal parts (this tourbillon movement is the CH80 automatic chronograph before Tag Heuer Developed on the basis of the core), have further reduced the cost of the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T tourbillon watch, reducing the price. Due to the low price of this tourbillon watch, Patek Philippe President Teri Stein has stated that the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T tourbillon watch has destroyed the value of Swiss watchmaking. But there is no doubt that the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T tourbillon watch has greatly reduced the entry threshold for Swiss-made tourbillons, which is definitely good news for watch buyers.

Wang Jing: No Watch Can Satisfy All The Desires Of A Watch

There is no praise for the chanting of the watch. Wang Ji used a slightly literary tone to express some aesthetic trends of literary style (although I think he might not agree with my use of the rotten word Describe him). But he is also active, planning and ambitious. He emphasizes ‘reliable’ in his work, which is a unique background for watch collectors.
    Wang Ji Watch connoisseur, producer of ‘Time Art’ and ‘First Class’ magazine, one of the sponsors and the first judge of ‘Yingchuantang Review’ in the Chinese watch collection. The author of a watch that was once called the ‘most drag’.
The best watch in life
    Wang Jizhi said to reporters chicly that what disappeared briefly was luxury. Before long, he told another story and proved it in circles. He said that the watch he could no longer find was the best watch in life. The first watch in life that he bought when he stepped into the university, the Omega Speedmaster, was lost because of his ridiculous years. If he could be met now, he would buy it again no matter how much it cost.
    Whether he was wearing PP or Panerai now, or even though he asked his family for the watch at the time, it was only influenced by Japanese watch magazines, and felt very trendy, but if you ask him the one in his heart that touched him most , Still the lost Omega.
    Well, we all know that the lack of access to the lost needle is always a dangling needle. Probably for this reason, the watch seems more meaningful-because its mechanical operation always reminds people that cherishing the moment is the most important.
On the left is PP5726, which aroused the desire of Wang Ji to wear watches.
The significance of a watch lies in a momentary joy
    ‘One watch, three or five days of joy, is enough.’ This is Wang Ji’s expression of happiness in hiding a watch. Indeed, when he asked him to hide the pictures of the watch, he just took out five watches from the bank in accordance with the concise style of his magazine, took a photo, sent it, and then locked it in the bank again. ‘I usually don’t like the feeling of wearing a watch. Except for the current Patek Philippe 5726, this is indeed a watch that evokes the feeling of wearing a watch. For me, this is already a ‘universal watch’ It’s because its annual calendar shows that I do n’t have to look around like a stupid neck every time I sign a contract. The rubber strap I wear is also comfortable and convenient. But what about it? I’ve been searching for a suitable strap for a long time Every time I get a watch, I am happy for three or five days, and I feel so good looking, I have been satisfied and I can lock it in the cabinet after enjoying it. ‘
    ‘No watch can satisfy all people’s desires for a watch. There is no perfect thing, and people are always pursuing multiple sides. Even Patek Philippe is impossible. And even if there is no watch that can completely represent Patek Philippe ‘I don’t know if it is because of the influence of Dongying’s study abroad on Wang Ji’s aesthetics. He often used a slightly literary tone and sentences to express some aesthetic tendencies of literary style, although I think he may not agree with me Grungy words describe him.
Wang Ji Watch Collection
I don’t care if the watch is accurate
    ‘I know that watch collectors today are divided into two groups. One is to restore the watch to a real chronograph, returning to what it was 100 years ago, mechanical precision, and no involvement with art. For example, Rolex. And I However, it does not care about the accuracy of the watch. I certainly know their mechanical reliability, but my point is that a thing can only become a luxury product like art if it is more out of practicality. What I care about is that the beauty brought by these machines, of course, contains a lot of them. The mechanical beauty embodied by the movement, the grinding of parts, and the curves are all the final visual beauty. ‘These are the kings. Silent favorite watch, this luxury personality.
    However, when it comes to watch collection investment, Wang Ji’s strong reason as a man immediately appeared. ‘If you look at it without any emotion, there are too few watches worth collecting! But in an auction just concluded on May 14, it proved that the top antique watches are very worthy of attention.’ I saw a Rolex from 1955. , The appearance is really good! The single appearance is like a new watch, but it has a distinct and unparalleled taste of the years than the new watch, that kind of cultural sense. In the end it was sold at 10 times the market price. I used to discuss with Zhang Yesheng, like drinking old wine, even if it was not a good year, because with the taste of time precipitation, the feeling of time and space travel will be more intoxicating than the new wine of good vintage. . We have a summary. Regarding the experience of enjoyment, whether it is for wine or watches, I think it is the same: it is normal for the elderly to wear the old watch, and it is young for the elderly to wear the new watch. It is normal for young people to wear new watches, and it is tasteful for young people to wear old watches. Today’s machining accuracy is stronger than before, which does not mean that people in this era are smarter than those in those days. For an old watch, because the processing accuracy is not high, there are more manual interventions and more artificial temperament. Instead of putting it in a machine, a watch comes out.
Chinese watch circle must have a say
    One of Wang Ji’s recent events was to find eight watch collectors with great names in the Chinese language circle and make a watch selection together.
    This is an ambitious thing. This ‘Yingchuantang Review’ reveals its ambitions from the cover. Like the Michelin Guide, it uses a red cover, and the big words on the cover read ‘2011 Chinese Circle Watch Collection Weathervane’. It is going to become an actual book. Consumption guide book of Red Treasure, but also one review a year.
    Of course, the nine judges all have a status. Zhong Yonglin, who has ‘developed’ the ‘Top Ten Famous Watches’, Zhang Haosheng, who is known as a grand brother, and Wang Jinlong, who independently produced Taiwan’s first tourbillon pocket watch, have already collected many top-level watches in the 1970s. For the ‘rich second generation’ Mr. Ye Shurong, Mr. Huo Feile who had independently produced the first tourbillon watch on the mainland … and so on, etc., no matter what the ranking is, there is a sound of any name. ‘People who live to this level are reliable in doing things.’
    ‘We spend the most time making rules because as long as the rules are set, the rest will be reliable. What we have selected, apart from the annual watch king, the rest must be relatively easy to buy in the market. The annual watch king must be The new watch of the year, but other watches can be within 10 years. Each judge will score blindly and win the highest score … ‘Many detailed rules are listed before the list. ‘When I was young, I also bought a lot of’ face watches. ‘A brand produced a special watch and couldn’t help buying it.’ Wang Ji said, ‘So in short, we have to make a From the perspective of Chinese people’s appreciation, we have selected watches that are suitable for Chinese people to wear, hoping to have real guiding significance for consumers. ‘
