Harmonious Beauty In The Contrast Of Black And White Datograph Up Down

DATOGRAPH, launched in 1999, has written a new chapter in the history of watchmaking. In just five years after the launch of Lange’s first contemporary watch series, this watch has been combined with Lange’s first proprietary chronograph movement. Technical features such as column wheel design, precise jumping points, flyback function and large calendar display have become important benchmarks for Lange watchmaking.
   With a balanced design, the watch has a loyal supporter shortly after its launch, and DATOGRAPH UP / DOWN with a 60-hour power reserve and power reserve indicator that debuted in 2012 is no exception. The unique design of clever layout and sharp contrast is now even more exciting in the platinum 950 style in black and white. Juxtapose with black and white objects, leaving a fascinating image.
   Ebony and White Ivory: DATOGRAPH UP / DOWN blends with black and white keys.
   Old but never new: DATOGRAPH UP / DOWN is like a game. Its 30-minute scoreboard is also suitable for use in Blitz games. Players can accurately know the start of the next minute by jumping the points accurately.
   Extraordinary strength stems from a calm response: in DATOGRAPH UP / DOWN, the harmonious structure of the dial sets off the balance of the movement. The Lange large calendar, as well as the two silver-white sub-dials representing the seconds and the integrating dial, form an equilateral triangle.
   The new models of this series have now arrived at Lange’s brand new boutique in Beijing’s SKP mall. For more details, please contact:

Moon Phase Table, Starting From Longines Famous Craftsman

A large part of the ancient people’s research on astronomical sciences came from the moon phase. Time is measured and recorded by observing the moon’s cloudy and sunny circle. In our minds, the moon always carries a layer of mysterious veil, which makes us want to explore and understand. The birth of the ‘Moon Phase Table’ has, to a certain extent, fulfilled our dream of ‘sitting on the sky’.

   What is the moon phase table?
   Moon phase watches refer to watches with ‘lunar phase function’. They usually place a special semi-circular window on the dial, which includes a semi-circular arc and two small arcs. This well-designed shape combined with the moon on the moon phase disk can tell us more accurately the shape of the moon at the beginning or end of a cycle.

   The moon phase table is based on the principle that the moon phase profit and loss is a cycle every 29.5 days, and the sum of the two cycles ’59’ is used as the number of gears on the moon phase wheel. After being pushed by the transmission wheel, the moon phase wheel advances one tooth every day to show the change of the moon phase.

   The sequence of moon phase changes can be regarded as a cycle of new moon → Emei moon → first quarter moon → convex moon → full moon → convex moon → second quarter moon → residual moon → new moon, and the moon phase table is exactly this change into the watch During the game, the player can grasp the changes of the moon through the moon phase disk. It is both a function and a very ornamental feature. Therefore, many watch players like the ‘Moon Phase Function’, not because they want to see the moon phase profit and loss, but because the moon phase display on the dial looks exceptionally elegant and romantic.
   In our impression, ‘complex functions’ always seem to be linked with ‘astronomical’, ‘rare’, and ‘luxury’, but in fact, five-digit watches also have design and craftsmanship. Very good watch. In terms of the ‘Moon Phase Watch’, Longines’ famous master series moon phase watch is very classic.

Constellation series is the most famous series of the brand. It has a high reputation all over the world and is one of the most recognizable models. It has been praised by the industry and loved by consumers. This time I introduce you to a constellation series watch. The 31 mm watch has a blue dial and a bezel with snowflakes and diamonds. It has a classic and noble style. Official model: 123.25.31.20.53.001

   The classic design concept of the Constellation series originates from the special release of the Omega Centennial Series to commemorate the centennial of the birth of the Omega brand. In 1952, the first constellation watch with a golden star-shaped logo on the dial was born, and in the decades since then, the constellation series has been modified and redesigned many times, and it has a variety of shapes and movements. Changes, inconveniences make it elegant and precise and reliable automatic chronometer movement.

   The newly upgraded constellation coaxial watch is shining with dazzling light, which cannot be ignored. This watch has a case diameter of 31 mm, and the case and bracelet are made of 18K red gold and stainless steel.

   The dazzling blue PVD dial features a sun ray pattern emanating from the star emblem at 6 o’clock, and 11 single-cut diamonds dot the hour scale. The 18K gold polished hour and minute hands are covered with a white luminous layer to ensure that the time can be easily read under any light conditions. At 3 o’clock, the date is displayed.

   The polished bezel in 18K red gold is set with brilliant-cut diamonds, which shines brilliantly.

   The four ‘claws’ on the case are an important feature of the watch. The four polished 18K red gold claws on the frosted case. The contrast of color and texture makes the distinctive sign of this constellation watch more obvious.

   The claws appeared on the dial of the constellation watch. It originated in 1982. In this year, Omega released the constellation Manhattan watch. Designers Carol Didisheim and Pierre-André Aellen added four claw designs to the dial shape design. This unique design not only enhanced the extraordinary beauty of the watch’s appearance, but also reflected the extremely high functionality in that era: the claws firmly fixed the sapphire crystal mirror and gasket on the case to ensure the watch’s water resistance characteristic. Today, this classic shape has become the main feature of the Constellation series.

   The 18K red gold and stainless steel bracelet with frosted links and polished chain needles are arranged horizontally in order, which is one of the classic features of the Constellation watch.

   Small stainless steel folding clasp with matte Omega logo in 18K gold.

   The watch is equipped with the Omega 8520 self-winding coaxial movement, which has long-lasting superb accuracy and stability. Equipped with a cardless balance with a silicon hairspring. The two-way automatic winding system can shorten the winding time. The movement’s rhodium-plated surface is decorated with a unique Arabic-inspired Geneva wave. Power reserve of 50 hours.

Summary: The classic shape of the watch, the blue dial adds a bit of nobleness and mystery to the watch, and it also makes it very dazzling in the large family of constellation watches. The snowflake-set diamond bezel has luxury in Your own artistic atmosphere. The trustworthy 8520 self-winding coaxial movement removes concerns about the mechanical performance and accuracy of the watch and is a more mature and stable watch. The official model of the watch is 123.25.31.20.53.001, with a reference price of 114400 yuan. (Watch House Photo / Text VIVIAN)
