Is Your First Big Lion Also Your Favorite?

This big lion is also my first oriental watch. In order to hand in this homework, it took me almost a year to finish it. I wore a big lion through the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Please take a lot of advice.) Talk about the personal feeling after getting started, the two characteristics of weight and thickness. I know how heavy it is before buying, but I ca n’t live without it (it’s OK to get used to it). If the thickness can be as thin as 35mm, it is simply perfect. I like the original tape to wear this watch in short sleeves in summer. The rookie did not know what brand it was, and did not know its value, so it was low-key. Since I like diving watches, I will pay attention to the diving watches of almost all brands. What attracted me to this big lion are: 1. Super thick sapphire mirror, the mirror surface feels solid with my fingernails. 2. The watch has power to show how many hours can be watched when manually winding. 3. The material and design of the outer ring of the diving chronograph are very personal and seem to be electroplated. 4. It is very convenient to change the strap of this watch. I can get a strap in my bag with a paper clip. I will change the strap immediately when I am in a hurry. I do n’t know anything about the movement of the Big Lion, and I do n’t know if I have the opportunity to look at the movement of the Big Lion. I have no requirements for the movement when I buy the watch. The watch is almost a year away and it is a good time to go. It is the most accurate member in my family. It is also worn by other brands but it runs fast. Forty-something photos of Zhang Yeguang were taken with a camera, and the rest were taken with a mobile phone. Not much to say, friends, please enjoy it slowly, thank you, please advise! !!

In order to ensure the excellent transmission of the double barrel, special gear teeth are used to generate a 20-degree pressure angle to help the gear set. The design of this process is inspired by the transmission of the car, which continuously feeds all the power through the gear into an efficient escapement.

Patricia Urquiola Presents Ideas For The New Panerai Store

Originated from enthusiasm for Italy’s outstanding design, the high-end sports watch brand Panerai and internationally renowned designer Patricia Urquiola have opened a new round of cooperation. Patricia Urquiola will conceive a new concept for five boutiques of the Florentine brand Panerai. All five projects have strategic significance for Panerai and will be launched in the summer of 2014, including new flagship stores in Florence, Hong Kong, Miami, and new specialty stores in New York and Paris.

  Patricia Urquiola was born in Spain, studied and worked in Italy, and has deep roots in Italy. She has worked with many well-known masters in Italian design history, including Achille Castiglioni and Vico Magistretti. Its design career is mainly based on Italy, and has created various types of projects for many well-known brands around the world. The opportunity for the collaboration between Urquiola and Panerai began in the 2011 O’Clock-time design, design time exhibition, where she led the design and art direction of the exhibition. The partner of the high-end watch brand Panerai for this exhibition, the theme is the relationship between time and design, curated by the Triennale Design Museum of Milan, and successively exhibited in Milan and Beijing.
   Panerai Global CEO Angelo Bonati said, ‘Inviting Patricia Urquiola to build and create a new concept store is an exciting challenge. We have gained a deep understanding of Patricia through the O’Clock exhibition, which extends to A deeper and strategic foundation for cooperation. I call it a challenge because this cooperation inspired many elements: on the one hand, a high-end brand with a military background, a strong and unique image, upholding unique values ​​and showing in simplicity. Classical aesthetics; the other side is a Spanish designer with different elements, fully showing her boundless creativity from her ability to color, shape and break through the conventional. But we have the same dedication, including love for design, rigorous Style, heritage of the brand and the pursuit of excellence.
  The strategic significance of the five projects fully demonstrates the importance of Patricia Urquiola’s cooperation with Panerai. The first project was in the most historic Florence store. Panerai founded this store in 1860, located in the Archbishop’s Palace, facing the Baptistery. Store windows will be increased from one to four. As one of the historic monuments in the Tuscan capital, the restoration works to be completed will fully follow its original features. The second project is located in the heart of Canton Road’s high-end luxury shopping district in Hong Kong. It will become the world’s largest Panerai specialty store after a few months of unveiling. Hong Kong is a major city in the global luxury watch industry. For Panerai, it has been an important market for many years. The third project is located in Miami’s new design park, which is dedicated to developing into one of the world’s centers for high-end brands, design and contemporary art. Another project is also located in the United States. In cooperation with Patricia Urquiola, Panerai opened a new specialty store in the most advantageous location on Madison Avenue in New York, replacing the old store currently located across the street. Patricia Urquiola’s last project is the second Panerai Paris store, which will soon be unveiled in the summer of 2014, in the high-end shopping area Rue de Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
   Patricia Urquiola said, ‘I consciously share my heart with Panerai, because we share the same values, we are also meticulous in design and technology, but we don’t show traces, we don’t show off, and the style is simple. Those who are interested can discover the meaning and it is worth it. Trust and fully feel the dedication and persistence of quality.
  As new stores open one after another, details of the new concept will be fully revealed. Each design combines local features with the history and personality of Panerai. The sea world can also be felt in the design of the new store. Because Panerai first supplied precision instruments for the Italian Navy, it has deep roots in the ocean, and thus created the first Panerai watches born in the 1930s and 1940s.

Cartier Double Mystery Tourbillon Watch

Imagine a watch with a tourbillon frame suspended in the air, without any connection to other parts. When the tourbillon frame starts its second rotation every 5 minutes a week, this magical visual experience is finally achieved. This dual mysterious floating tourbillon watch not only combines Cartier’s bold creativity and watchmaking expertise, but also embodies the essence of the brand’s mysterious timepiece creation for more than a century.

When magic turns into technology

 Behind the simple and elegant appearance hides incredible complex machinery. The biggest highlight of this Rotonde de Cartier watch is the innovative mechanical structure called ‘double mystery’. The watchmaker at the Cartier Workshop must show endless originality and flexibility in order to maximize the materials and movement and create a series of dazzling dynamic miracles. When performing tricks, magicians need to divert the audience’s attention and convince them of the visual illusions and supernatural powers they create. In the Rotonde double mysterious tourbillon watch, the designer team draws inspiration from the creativity of Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin, the father of modern magic, to create a suspended vision feast.

 Experts in the watchmaking industry know that the tourbillon device in the vertical position rotates at a predetermined frequency through its frame, and the average azimuth error (by passing through each point of the circle in a given time), thereby reducing the gravity to the balance (Governing mechanism). This exquisite device is placed in the center of the Rotonde double mysterious tourbillon watch, which seems to get rid of the law of gravity, giving people the impression of being unsupported and suspended in the air. At the same time, the tourbillon frame completes one rotation per minute and complete rotation in its space every 5 minutes, completely released from the constraints of gravity.

Hide invisible mysteries

The watchmaker at the Cartier Workshop uses an anti-glare sapphire crystal wafer disc and excavates a hole of the same size as the tourbillon to perfectly create the illusion that the tourbillon frame is suspended. In order to realize this illusion, they made the disc supporting the frame in a rotating state, and then set the minute wheel driving the vibrator on a rotating shaft, which was used to limit the inherent ‘resistance torque’ of the mechanism supporting the tourbillon, and thus succeeded. The power is transmitted to the tourbillon, and the entire device can complete a suspended rotation every 5 minutes. Therefore, while the tourbillon rotates every 5 minutes in a transparent open space, its frame performs 5 complete rotations. The secret to achieving this is to place a set of racks on the edge of the sapphire crystal wafer disc, connecting the disc to a large gear that runs once every 5 minutes.

Challenge the law of gravity

9454 MC double mysterious tourbillon movement is the result of Cartier’s long-term research and development. For example, determining the speed of each moving part requires countless calculations. To minimize energy consumption, the tourbillon frame completes a complete rotation in its specific space every 5 minutes, which is 25 times less energy than a revolution per minute. In order to improve the efficiency of this mobile device, the weight of each component of the movement is minimized, so as to better control the inertia of the rotating components including the disc and the titanium tourbillon frame. Although the weight of the ‘floating’ frame has been reduced to a minimum (0.28 g), in order to offset the weight of the speed governing mechanism and the frame, a part of the round frame for meshing the gear is made of gold and is installed opposite the tourbillon. Position to equalize weight on both sides, creating a dynamic balance effect.
