Passion For Italian Racing Fans

National car races began in the early 20th century. At that time, racing cars were dressed in colors that symbolized their country. Alfa Romeo took the lead in launching the red car, and this color was later adopted by Ferrari and became the iconic color of the Italian car. Chopin pays tribute to Italy with its new masterpiece Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Rosso Corsa red chronograph. This watch is equipped with the outstanding movement certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC) and impresses passionate Italian racing fans with its fashionable style.

   The vibrant red is the color used on the dials of the new Chopard Mille Miglia series. The new watch is named GT XL Chrono Rosso Corsa, of which ‘Rosso Corsa’ is reminiscent of ‘racing colors’. Until the end of the 1960s, Italian racing cars appeared in international competitions in Rosso Corsa red. This year, Chopin took the lead in bringing the Mille Miglia red chronograph to Italy, to the Alfa Romeo antique car, to the Ferrari antique car, and other racing color Mille Miglia models will also be launched one after another, so stay tuned. As the iconic sports watch that Chopin is proud of, Mille Miglia’s red new model is as always, paying tribute to the legendary international antique car competition. This race of Resia-Rome-Brescia brings together many beautiful antique cars from around the world every year. And Chopin’s sponsorship of the antique car competition began in 1988.

   The so-called ‘color of competition’ dates back to the Coupe Gordon Bennett, a famous car race that began with the national team in 1900. The new rules for the Gordon-Bennet Cup include that racing cars are not grouped by race nationality, but are based on the country of the car manufacturer. This resulted in ‘Blue Bugatti’ (for France), ‘Red Alfa Romeo’ (for Italy), ‘British Green Racing’, yellow Belgian racing, and white German racing.

   The Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Rosso Corsa red chronograph is equipped with a polished titanium case with a diameter of 44 mm. The built-in silver chronograph small dial exudes blue luster on the red lacquered dial, while the red lacquered dial echoes the red stitching on the black leather strap and the transferred Arabic numerals on the inner ring. The Arabic numerals 6 and 12 are magnified under the sapphire crystal, making it even more unique. The streamlined titanium chronograph buttons and the quick test scale engraved on the bezel highlight the watch’s sporting characteristics. The sapphire crystal is anti-glare on both sides to make the reading more clear. The bottom of the watch is engraved with the legendary circuit of Mille Miglia.

   The new model is equipped with a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC) with a vibration frequency of 28’800 per hour, or 4 Hz, and a power reserve of 46 hours. The transparent case back reveals the precise structure of the movement. Central hour and minute display, small seconds at 9 o’clock, perpetual calendar enlarged display at 3 o’clock, central seconds, 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock, 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, both last two chronograph dial It is a double-layer structure. The screw-down crown construction makes the watch water-resistant to 100 meters. The new Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Rosso Corsa Red Chronograph Stopwatch is limited to 1,000 pieces and is precious.

The Commemorative Brand Was Born In 1860. Tag Heuer Meridist Luxury Phone

The famous watch brand TAG Heuer was founded in 1860 in a small town in western Switzerland, St. Emma, ​​and has a history of more than 150 years. Outstanding, in recent years, TAG Heuer’s cross-border work has also been developed. On the eve of this year’s National Holiday, a luxurious mobile phone called MERIDIIST is launched. )profession. With outstanding battery life and communication performance, MERIDIIST fuses the meaning of crossing the meridian, and is tailor-made for modern elites who travel the world and cross these abstract lines that divide different time zones. MERIDIIST Sapphire Special Edition 1860 is a special edition of the MERIDIIST mobile phone, which uses an elegant sapphire keyboard; in memory of the Heuer brand was born in 1860, this phone only produced 1860 units. MERIDIIST performance: The exclusive patented top display is like a modern pocket watch, so you can see the time at a glance and manage incoming calls easily.

Tag Heuer’s First Integrated Column Wheel Mechanical Chronograph

5 years after the launch of the Calibre 360 ​​chronograph, TAG Heuer has once again hit the ground, launching the first integrated column wheel mechanical chronograph, a new design of high-frequency dual-component mechanical machine The core is a gift to the 1916 Heuer Mikrograph stopwatch. TAG Heuer (TAG Heuer) launched the first integrated column wheel mechanical chronograph-TAG Heuer CARRERA MIKROGRAPH 1/100 second chronograph, using the central hand to display 1/100 seconds, eye-catching, clear and easy to read. The TAG Heuer watch factory is responsible for watch design, patent application, development and manufacturing. This major innovation has once again established TAG Heuer’s dominance of extreme precision, speed and highly complex mechanical movements for 150 years.
     For more than 50 years, TAG Heuer Mikrograph stopwatches have clocked high-speed movements at 25 and 50 Hz. The TAG Heuer CARRERA MIKROGRAPH 1 / 100-second chronograph uses dual movement components, 62 jewel bearings and 396 parts, which is another initiative of ‘Swiss Haute Horlogerie’, setting a new milestone for complex-function watches.
The first mechanical watch with a central hand displaying 1/100 second of 360,000 vibrations per hour, showing extremely accurate timing
    TAG Heuer CARRERA MIKROGRAPH 1/100 second chronograph, like Calibre 360, has two balance wheels, independent escapement and transmission, which can ensure the timing and normal watch performance without affecting the movement of the movement. But the difference from the modular Calibre 360 ​​is that the new Mikrograph 1 / 100-second chronograph is certified by the Swiss official observatory and fully integrates the column wheel system. This stopwatch includes a 4 Hz watch balance, which vibrates 28,800 times per hour, with a 42-hour power reserve; and a high-frequency Swiss chronograph balance (50 Hz), which vibrates 360,000 times per hour, with the There is a 90-minute power reserve device; and the central indicator shows 1/100 second. The bottom cover is a sapphire crystal see-through window, which can directly observe two ‘hearts’ with different vibration speeds, which are located at the bottom of the complex movement decorated with Geneva ripples, facing each other. In 1916, TAG Heuer launched the first Mikrograph sports stopwatch with 1/50 and 1/100 second accuracy.
     TAG Heuer’s timeless heritage is unmatched. The millisecond discrimination allows TAG Heuer to reach its peak again, and it is closely related to speed athletes. In 1916, TAG Heuer introduced the first Mikrograph sports stopwatch with an accuracy of 1/50 and 1/100 seconds, while the highest accuracy of other tools at that time was only 1/5 seconds. This technological innovation has improved timing accuracy and changed the future of event management. For struggling professional players, the millisecond battle is the key to success. This groundbreaking core technology has made TAG Heuer the first official timer sponsor of the world’s most famous events.
     The TAG Heuer CARRERA MIKROGRAPH 1 / 100-second chronograph is only available in a limited edition of 150 rose gold, bringing stopwatch innovation to modern racing enthusiasts seeking extreme precision. So far, watches and stopwatches are two different timing tools with different uses: watches can be regarded as marathon runners, with balanced speed and endurance, while chronographs are like sprinters, sprinting and extremely powerful explosive force. If the two are driven by the same gear, the chronograph movement will wear out quickly. TAG Heuer launches the limited edition grey version of CARRERA MIKROGRAPH 1 / 100-second chronograph to celebrate TAG Heuer’s ‘150th anniversary of speed’.
