A Tribute To Nicholas Kays, A New Interpretation Of Kaishi Timer

The patented chronograph invented by NicolasRieussec in 1821 has become the source of inspiration for Montblanc watchmakers to create modern NicolasRieussecWatchCollection and movements. The unique design of this series of watches includes the eccentric hour and minute dials on the upper part and the chronograph sub-dials on the lower part to measure the passage of time. Continuing the typical design of the chronograph invented in 1821, the two chronograph sub-dials use special rotating disks with fixed hands to display chronograph minutes and seconds information. As the royal watchmaker of the French court, the invention of the Nicholas Kaiser chronograph was originally used to calculate the elapsed time of a single horse in a horse race. When the starting line fired the gun, the patented ‘ink drop timing’ function of the Nicholas Kaiser chronograph was turned on, and two white enamel discs started to run: one for 60 seconds and the other for 30 minutes. When the participating horses crossed the finish line, the button device on the timer was pressed, the pointer and the ink capsule were pressed to point to the rotating disc, and the ink droplets left ink marks on the enamel turntable, thereby recording the meter room. The clear ink droplets on the enamel disc can show the user the exact time of each racing horse. This kind of timer invented by Nicholas Kays is known as the ‘time writer’, so the inventor himself named it ‘chronograph’, which is derived from the Greek ‘chronos time’ and ‘graphein’. In 1822, the French Academy of Sciences in Paris granted a patent for a timer invented by Nicholas Kaiser, which made Nicholas Kaiser the world’s first inventor of a patented timer.

  In 2014, Montblanc forge ahead with a new interpretation of the masterpiece of timekeeping invented in 1821 by modern watchmakers. The new Montblanc ‘HomagetoNicolasRieussec’ chronograph faithfully reproduces the color matching and pointer style of the patented timer of the ‘Time Writer’ of 1821, and uses innovative materials and technology to present this genius invention in a modern way Before the eyes of the world. The new Montblanc ‘tribute to Nicholas-Kase’ chronograph watch with date display and dual time zone functions, combined with day / night display function, will be launched in 18K rose gold and stainless steel limited edition.

  Traditional characteristics-innovative modeling
  With an unprecedented and unique design, the hands of the ‘Tribute to Nicholas Kays’ chronograph are designed with dual scale indications: the ends of the slim diamond-shaped blue metal hands point to the chronograph scales on two rotating chronograph dials. The design of each dial faithfully reproduces the chronograph ink carrier of the patented 1821 timer. The two white lacquered rotating disks are also based on the historical model. The left rotating disk is used to measure 60 seconds. , The right disc is used for timing 30 minutes.

  At first glance, the eccentric main dial of the ‘Tribute to Nicholas Kays’ chronograph seems to have only the minute scale, and the hour scale is missing. With a black orbital scale marked with Arabic numerals every ten minutes, the minute scale ring faithfully reproduces the dial design of the original ‘time writer’. The hour and minute hands clearly point to the respective display scales, ensuring the best readings are clear. degree.
  In the dark, the hour scale circle will clearly display the previously hidden hour scale on the dial with unique technology. The traditional hour scale circle is made of modern mixed ceramics covered with luminous substances, and the Arabic hour numerals are designed with the unique style characteristics of Montblanc Nicholas Kaiser series. The hours are cleverly concealed in plenty of light, thanks to the same color as the dial, which is precisely embedded in the dial. When the ambient light is gradually dim, the luminous substance covered by the hour number, and the hour and minute hands also covered with luminous substance will emit bright light together. While ensuring the best reading clarity,
  The off-white main dial and chronograph sub-dial with a special luster show an enamel-like texture, which contrasts sharply with the grain-like decoration on the dial. The 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock windows are matte polished. The former is used to display the date, while the latter is decorated with a fine guilloche pattern for day / night display. The skeletonized hour hand in the center of the off-centre dial indicates the time in the second time zone.

  Self-Closing One-Button Chronograph

  Combining traditional watchmaking with modern craftsmanship aesthetics, Montblanc’s self-made Calibre MBR200 automatic movement beats in this innovatively designed chronograph watch. This single-button chronograph movement uses a column wheel structure and a modern vertical clutch device to ensure the smooth operation of the chronograph function and effectively avoid the minute jump of the chronograph second hand when the chronograph starts. In addition, the dual barrel provides a power reserve of up to 72 hours for the movement. The CalibreMBR200 movement not only stands out with its modern functional configuration, but also the aesthetic decoration that is loyal to traditional watchmaking technology is also a highlight: the movement’s plywood is decorated with Geneva patterns and polished by edges and corners. Bright red bearing jewels, blue steel screws, and gold-glossy brass gears add a touch of beauty to the exquisite movement decoration. Through the sapphire crystal glass on the bottom of the watch, the exquisite Calibre MBR200 movement will be seen in full view.

  Functionalized case

  The ‘Tribute to Nicholas Kays’ chronograph watch features a micro-arched sapphire crystal, with anti-reflective coating on both sides. The round case made of 18K rose gold is 43mm in diameter, and the curved lugs that are slightly curved downward on both sides are ergonomically designed to give the wearer excellent wearing comfort. Watch collectors will undoubtedly notice the unconventionally designed chronograph buttons. The design at 8 o’clock shows that this is a chronograph controlled by a single button-the wearer can easily and conveniently control with his left thumb. The finely grooved 18K rose gold crown is decorated with a hemispherical black and white bicolor Montblanc hexagonal white star logo. Also made of 18K rose gold with a pin buckle and a soft crocodile leather strap, this one-button chronograph watch has perfect wearing comfort.
  Montblanc’s ‘tribute to Nicholas Kays’ chronograph will be officially launched in the fall of 2014. The 18K rose gold version will be limited to 193-in commemoration of the 193th anniversary of the invention of the world’s first patented timer by Nicholas Kays The price is 26,900 Euros.

L.U.C Xp 35mm Esprit De Fleurier Peony Watch A Dream Watch For Women’s Luxury Watch

This LUC XP watch inherits the simple and elegant temperament and excellent technical performance of the Chopard classic series LUC, becoming one of the other flagship models of the Chopard high-end watch series-LUC watches. .

   Since 2014, Chopard has launched a women’s L.U.C watch with a watch diameter of only 35 mm. It is deeply favored by women. Its movement uses the LUC 96.23-L independently developed and manufactured by Chopard, and is decorated with the nearly-lost craft-Fleurisanne carving, which is undoubtedly the passionate collision of femininity and precision timekeeping. Predicts happiness and wealth, limited to 8 pieces.

   Since ancient times, Shenhua Peony has been floating in many legends and myths. Today, Peony blooms delicate petals on the famous Chopard watch, exudes elegant fragrance, and embellishes the dial of L.U.C XP 35mm Esprit de Fleurier Peony watch and the Chopard factory-made movement. This watch is feminine and feminine, while adhering to the strict standards of haute horology. The peony on the dial of the mother-of-pearl of Tahiti is exquisite and moving, and the song is moving. It is shaped in gold and embellished with diamonds. It is set on the bottom of the rose gold dial, exuding grace and elegance.

   Paramount Elegance In 2014, Chopard first introduced the L.U.C ultra-thin watch with a diameter of 35 mm, presenting an exclusive L.U.C watch for women. Previously, women who loved this watch could only borrow men’s watches. The watch is light, detailed, and timeless, with a high-precision movement produced by Chopard.
   In 2015, this elegant and chic, royal-looking model adds a new masterpiece: the L.U.C XPS 35mm Esprit de Fleurier watch. This watch uses an increasingly rare ancient technique: the fleurisanne carving process. Today, the craft is reborn with a peony pattern. The watch is limited to 8 pieces with a grey matte canvas strap.
Oriental flower

 
   In Greek and Eastern mythology, the peony has a rich fragrance in many legends. Peony originated from Central Asia and was originally planted as a medicinal plant to treat a variety of diseases. At first, it was a symbol of health and well-being, but it was gradually given more meaning. It is considered a marriage that brings good fortune, prosperity and happiness, and has since represented wealth and honor in Asia. In the Tang Dynasty, the cultural significance of peony was particularly significant. Huayun is even associated with the National Games. The blooming peony symbolizes the prosperity of the Tang Dynasty. Peony is beautiful and beautiful, and is highly respected for its aesthetic characteristics, rich and beautiful posture and intoxicating fragrance. The peony decorates the inner court of the imperial palace, inspiring the artist’s creative inspiration, transforming into various poses, becoming a symbol of spring in Chinese myths and traditions and an incarnation of Wanli woman. Today, the unparalleled beauty of the peony has conquered all cultures and evokes wonderful resonance in the village of Fleurier …
Fleurier, a time-honored tradition
   In 1996, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele established a watch factory specialized in high-precision movements in Fleurier, Jura, Switzerland: the LUC high-end watch series came into being. The LUC series name is a tribute to Louis Ulysse Chopard. In less than 20 years, Chopard Watch Factory successfully ranks among the real watchmaking factories, and has been unanimously recognized by the watch industry and the general public. All research and development and production processes of L.U.C watches are completed in-house in Fleurier. This vertical integration system has witnessed the independence of the Chopard brand, which is one of the core values ​​of Chopard’s corporate culture.

   The village of Fleurier, the cradle of the watch industry, is the birthplace of many craftsmanship, but these craftsmanship is becoming increasingly rare. Chopard hopes to continue these traditions and carry on a deep cultural and aesthetic heritage. The fleurisanne carving is one of the decorative skills representing this watchmaking heritage: this craft won a great reputation for local watchmakers in the 19th century, and the timepieces used to decorate this carved pattern were all the rage as far away as China.
   Chopard revived this craft with the L.U.C XP 35mm Esprit de Fleurier Peony watch. Its rose gold movement is carved with peony motifs using fleurisanne engraving technology. This ingenious and unique technique is unique in relief. The engraver carved the material around the pattern. Then sculpt the wavy lines and flower patterns on the remaining surface and polish it to obtain the brilliance effect. Then around the pattern, carved one by one, and finally formed the appearance of grain. This time-consuming process requires extremely ingenious techniques, and Chopard has trained in-house professional craftsmen to inherit this traditional craft. After the engraving process is completed, the movement is then plated with rhodium to obtain a novel and unique two-color appearance.
Technological innovation
   This movement uses Twin’s patented technology, which is equipped with stacked coaxial double barrels and a power reserve of 65 hours. This kind of automatic movement is placed in an ultra-thin case with a thickness of 7.5 mm. Thanks to the delicate structure of the micro-rotor, the watchmakers at Chopard Watch Factory realized this extraordinary pioneering work and successfully sublimated the L.U.C 96.23-L movement configuration.

The Light Of Watchmaking: A.Lange & Söhne Selected As A Case Study By Harvard Business School

The latest Harvard Business School case study report explains how Lange has become an international watchmaking company and how it has continued to expand in a highly competitive environment. Stefan Thomke, a professor of business administration at Harvard Business School and an authority on innovation management, and Daniela Beyersdorfer, deputy director of the Paris European Studies Center at Harvard Business School, conducted research from 2016 to 2017.

   The two visited the watch factory in Glashütte, took part in training courses at Lange Academy, and interviewed the company’s founder Walter Lange (殁), Wilhelm Schmid, president of Lange, and other management members , Movement designers, watchmakers and retouching craftsmen.
   Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded the watch factory in the 19th century. With the insistence on quality and the spirit of seeking innovation, the development of the watch factory has been steadily rising. However, the German division forced Lange to interrupt its business for forty years, and the brand re-launched after the reunification of Germany and Germany. The values ​​that have remained unchanged for many years made the company reach another peak after 1990. In addition, Lange promotes a culture of innovation while striving for sustainable development.

Langer President Wilhelm Schmid, together with Rohit Deshpande, a professor of marketing at Harvard Business School, published a case study on April 26, 2017.
   Thomke concluded in a 25-page report: ‘The case study is for a company with a tradition of excellence in production quality, innovation, and brand image. Its products are among the top in the watchmaking industry.’
   Wilhelm Schmid, who became the company’s president in 2011, is determined to continue the brand quality and reputation while maintaining business growth and revenue. He said: ‘There are many ways to improve profitability, but the quality level in each field must be stable. We must not compromise on precision and surface finish quality.’ Wilhelm Schmid on April 26, 2017, As a guest speaker at Harvard Business School in Boston, he shares his business model with entrepreneurs and executives around the world.

Inheriting The Art Icing On The Masterpiece Interview With The Bear Enamel

Recently, the editor of Watch House was invited to interview Master Xiong Songtao, the head of Beijing Xiong’s Enamel. The watch house editor came to his factory for an interview. The purpose is to appreciate the artistic and cultural atmosphere there and the charm of Master Xiong himself. During the pre-interview preparations, I found some information about Master Xiong. After collating, I felt that he was a pure businessman silhouette in my mind. In this society, any artistic creation in the form of sale actually lacks the pursuit of art itself. But through actual contact, I saw something deeper than the price of enamel from Master Xiong: the value of life.

Watch House: First of all, please introduce yourself!
 Xiong Songtao: I have lived in this factory since I was a child. After graduating from university, I have learned the craft of enamel from my father. At first I wanted to find a job outside and have my own business, but my father still hoped that he could inherit this craft and pass on the enamel making process. So I learned from my father in the factory. The actual creation of the bear enamel was after I made the enamel dial. About 03 years ago, we started to develop dials. The reason was that the Swiss brand Athens was the first to sell enamel watches. Later, I felt that since my family also made enamels, I wanted to try it myself. The results are still very good. In 2006, we started to cooperate with Beijing Watch Factory to make the first enamel watch, Die Lianhua for North Watch. After the sale of this watch, it received a lot of attention and pursuit in Switzerland, and the price reached about 1 million.
 Watch House: How many years have you made enamel watches?

 Xiong Songtao: 15 years.
 Watch House: Where did your inspiration come from in the process of making the dial?
 Xiong Songtao: As a native of Beijing, many of my inspirations originate from Chinese classical culture.

Watch House: Then you must understand your own classical Chinese culture. Could you briefly talk about it?
 Xiong Songtao: The culture handed down in China for thousands of years covers all aspects. A lot of essence can be extracted from every aspect. I personally prefer Chinese Han culture, such as bronzes. The rise of Cloisonne was introduced to China by some missionaries from the end of the Yuan Dynasty. At that time, the Emperor Ming Dynasty liked it very much. Cloisonne once became an imperial ornament for the palace. In the process of making enamel, we also learned some elements from the Ming and Qing dynasties in the shape And artistic concept.

Watch House: What is the difference between Bear’s enamel and other square enamels?

 Xiong Songtao: First of all, in terms of color, the characteristics of Xiong’s enamel are obvious. We are used to some new colors. Different from traditional Cloisonne. The materials are all configured by ourselves. Lapis lazuli, turquoise or agate is added to the glaze, and the glaze itself uses the traditional palace glaze formula. The second is the reeling process, which is relatively advanced in the industry. Very strong ability to express patterns. The carcass is basically silver or gold, and copper is relatively rare. The grinding process is also very detailed. A dial requires a combination of 54 craftsmanship to produce a complete work.

 

Watch House: Do you remember the first enamel plate you made?
 Xiong Songtao: Actually, this cannot be generalized, because we are working hard every day to overcome new technical problems, and it is difficult to answer which one of my first enamel plate works, if any, also produced in cooperation with Beibei Butterfly love it! The movement is sterling silver and the technology is mature.
Watch House: Among your many works, do you have a work that you are very proud of? Please give an example.
Xiong Songtao: The Forbidden City series in Fiyta Art Series is currently my own favorite work.

Watch House: What do you think of enamel art yourself?

  Xiong Songtao: The enamel craft has continued for more than 600 years since its initial introduction. From my own point of view, it’s very simple, just can’t lose this craft here. From the early days of liberation, the industry began to resurrect. Until now, there has been no major breakthrough. My career in this life is to make a breakthrough in the production of this art. Once our work was exhibited in Yangzhou, a professor at the Qinghua Academy of Fine Arts was very excited to see our work and said to me that he was very excited to see the current development of Cloisonne. From us, we saw the impetus for the inheritance of ethnic crafts. To myself, I am very proud!
  
Watch House: We can now expand the enamel craft to the case making, so do you have any ideas to expand the enamel culture to more fields?
 Xiong Songtao: Of course, jewelry, collectibles, daily necessities, etc. We will place enamel on different items as decoration according to different cultural needs.
Watch House: Do you have apprentices now?
 Xiong Songtao: I have apprentices and two.
Watch House: Tell us about your watch!
 Xiong Songtao: A watch is a work of art with decorative techniques. Functionally, it may not be the most valued by consumers. It can show its strength through artistic or complex functions.
Watch House: What are the difficulties in making the enamel dial?

 Xiong Songtao: In fact, the most important thing is the personnel problem! Not many people are willing to learn this craft. There are only a handful of people who can actually sit down and sit down and make enamel.
 Watch House: As an industry leader, do you think the future direction of enamel art itself, or what is the future development trend?
 Xiong Songtao: Moving towards the art direction can also help other brands to enhance the artistic value of the brand.
Home of watches: Can enamel culture be in line with European art forms?
 Xiong Songtao: Of course, but it will be limited by technology. Some European customers provide the required patterns, but not all can be completely restored on the enamel plate, so it can only be modified and negotiated.

Watch House: Seeing a lot of certificates in your cabinet, is there a story in these certificates?

 Xiong Songtao: This golden bottle certificate was given to my father. He was not very healthy at the time, so I made a bottle for my father’s health. The transliteration of the word bottle is ‘ping’, which means peace and security.
Watch House: Tell us about your family history about enamel making!
 Xiong Songtao: My grandfather studied enamel making for 9 years. After his apprenticeship, the country was in turmoil. After that, there was no room for survival. So my grandfather went home to farm. During the Cultural Revolution after liberation, the state called for entertainers with skills , Continue to develop their own skills. This was also conducive to foreign export trade at that time. At that time, our country exported the most jewelry, so under the circumstances, this enamel factory was established. At that time, the scale of the factory was not large, only about 19 people. My grandfather made enamel at that time, and my father built the factory while learning the craft with my grandfather. This factory has been in existence for 44 years from 69 to the present. In 2006, my father retired and gave me this place.
