By expanding its partnership with the Royal Theatre of Madrid, Breguet reaffirms its firm commitment to the protection of art and culture. Recently, the two parties have jointly organized a special concert featuring the soprano Renée Fleming, who is a real banner in the classical music world.
The world-renowned singer plays Armida, who is the protagonist of the opera of the same name by Gioachino Rossini. Renée Fleming has played in this role many times during his impressive career. As the owner of N ° 4604, legendary composer Gioachino Rossini is historically closely associated with Breguet. N ° 4604 is a concise date display pocket watch with a hand-engraved gold case.
After the performance, 50 VIP guests went to appreciate Breguet’s selection of timepieces. The arrival of Renée Fleming was a great honor for the guests who attended the theatre salon. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
The Mido watch has always been inspired by the great architecture. The Helmsman series shows the same magnificence as the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I have previously written a watch of the Belem Celli series, which is famous for elegance, and today I continue to appreciate this elegant M8600.4.18.8 watch.
The 38mm case of this Mido Berencelli series M8600.4.18.8 stainless steel, the rounded shape makes the lines look softer, and the elegant temperament suddenly emerges. The pure black dial shows a distinctive low-key sense. The silver-white toffee hands are more eye-catching. The toffee hands are widely used in the development of mechanical watches. The sharper design makes the needle point more accurate. The design is a direct reflection of vintage watches. This three-dimensional time scale made of 12 stainless steel makes this dial more three-dimensional. The calendar display window at 4:30 is tilted to the right at 45 °, which is different from the traditional calendar position. It looks interesting and delicate. The watch mirror is made of sapphire glass. This material is stable in nature, not easy to wear, and has strong light transmission, so that everything on the dial can be more fully reflected. The back of the case also has a layer of sapphire glass. This design allows the wearer to observe the structure of the movement and feel the beauty of the mechanical movement of the movement. The brown calfskin belt makes the whole look low-key. The entire watch exudes an elegant sense of art, which perfectly explains the timeless design concept of the Mido Berencelli series.
The Mido Berencelli series has always adopted the timeless design concept to make watches with few elements of fashion. As the Belem Sereni series M8600.4.18.8 adheres to this concept, the functional design is based on the use of design. The time display function is the basic of the watch. It adopts the retro three-pin design. The sharp needle thread of the toffee pointer makes the observation more accurate and convenient. The date display window with a novel location is fixed at 31 days per month, so although it provides a lot of convenience for the wearer to observe the date, it still needs to be manually adjusted multiple times a year. The tight structure of the entire watch allows the watch to reach a water-resistant depth of 50 meters. Compared with a 30-meter water-resistant watch, this degree of water resistance is enough to allow the wearer to enjoy life.
In terms of movement, Mido Berencelli series M8600.4.18.8 uses the ETA2824-2 movement, which is known as one of the three treasures of the ETA company. The stability and accuracy of this movement are the top of its kind, and many top brand watches use this movement or as the basic movement. With a diameter of 25.6mm and a thickness of 4.6mm, 25 rubies are used as bearings. The film coefficient of ruby is lower, which improves the life of the movement. The frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour ensures that the movement is accurate to one-eighth of a second. The 38-hour power reserve is more efficient and the two-way winding ensures long-term stable operation of the movement.
The name of Mido comes from Yo mido in Spanish. It means ‘I measure’. Since the birth of Mido Belem Celli series, it has appeared in the world with a unique and timeless design style. With a diameter of 38 mm and a thickness of 9 mm, the dimensions are extraordinarily exquisite. The stainless steel case and pure black dial have a low-key and beautiful design. The soft lines and rounded shapes set off the elegance of the stainless steel hands. Built-in ETA’s most well-known ETA2824-2 movement, 25-stone two-way winding, 4HZ, 38-hour power reserve, providing junior hand and calendar functions. Rather than pursuing the elements of fashion trends, it is better to maintain its own watchmaking philosophy, where practicality and eternity blend together, and it will withstand the test of time more than fashion trends. Real art is not a moment of bloom, but an eternal circulation.
