Panarai Launches 44mm Titanium Watch

Hard, but light. Tradition and fashion. These are the characteristics of the latest Luminor Chrono Daylight 44mm titanium watch. Luminor was developed more than 60 years ago for special military missions, and Panerai has become one of the professional diving watches. With reference to its excellent predecessor, the current model not only retains the special appearance of the case, but also preserves the main structural features: the crown bridge, which is firmly pressed against the case, so it has the protection of the crown and water resistance The dual function of effectiveness.
But from a technical point of view, this watch actually has many new features: it is no longer a watch with only hours and minutes; it has a chronograph function and a date indicator, which operates with an automatic movement and also obtains Watch certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC) to prove its timing accuracy. Equally important is the use of the case and the innovative bracelet: traditional steel is replaced by titanium.
Titanium is a hard, yet extremely lightweight metal. Used in this new Luminor is a fifth-grade alloy. Although it requires a very complicated special grinding technology, its advantages are its mild allergenicity and resistance to temperature and erosion. This is an extremely important feature for watches designed to be in constant contact with seawater.
The diameter of the case is 44mm. Its huge vertical metal band attachment and crown bridge (protected by trademark) show its characteristics. This device is a patented design obtained by Panerai more than half a century ago. It ensures complete water resistance when winding and adjusting the time of the watch. Embedded obliquely at both ends of the crown guard bridge are two buttons for controlling the timer; due to their appearance and shortened protrusions, they can operate faster. The case is made of frosted titanium, and the bezel that covers the periphery of the case is also made of frosted titanium, with polished edges and inscribed numbers and tachymeter scales. The last element that made this watch water resistant to 10 bar (100 meters) of water pressure was the design of the case back, which of course also uses titanium and screws to fix its position.
Luminor Chrono Daylight 44mm titanium watch dial color has replaced the traditional black with blue. The scales and numbers are coated with luminous material. This luminous material is also applied to the hour and minute hands, as well as the smaller hands running on the auxiliary dial. The auxiliary dial includes a continuous seconds dial (at 9 o’clock), an hour dial (at 6 o’clock), and a minute dial (at 3 o’clock), which operate immediately when the time starts. The dial is protected by a 2.5 mm thick anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass, which can withstand extremely high depths.
  It is particularly noteworthy that the bracelet is not only because of the metal it uses, it is also very innovative in terms of structure. Ongoing research in every horological category is on display, which is what Panerai focuses on. The new strap is made of matte titanium, but the contact points between the connecting rings are polished, which is reminiscent of the contrast between the bezel and the bezel.
Bracelets also show the intricate craftsmanship of the chain links. They appear in an asymmetric and sleek design with no corners: they provide a perfect integration of the design and ensure the comfort of the wrist. Of course, according to personal taste, the bracelet can be easily replaced by a traditional rubber or leather strap.
Luminor Chrono Daylight 44 mm titanium watch is equipped with a self-winding Panerai OP XII movement, 13? French, 27 stone and decorated with a pendulum and a bridge. With a 46-hour power reserve and Incabloc shock-proof device, this watch movement has been certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (C.O.S.C.) after undergoing a 16-day test.
的 The reference number of this model is PAM000327 and it belongs to the modern series. In addition, this new model of Panerai comes with a tool for changing the bracelet to a strap.

High-end Sports Watches Have Entered The Era Of ‘fantastic Fighting’

At this year’s Basel watch exhibition, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut series, which is often referred to as the ‘Grenade’ series, has launched a new chronograph watch. This is also the first time that ‘Grenade’ launched a chronograph watch. . The chronograph function of this watch uses the second hand and the chronograph seconds to display with the center hand. What I want to say about this watch is not its chronograph function, but this ‘grenade’ chronograph uses a very beautiful color scheme-orange, orange hands and chronograph minute dial, and is equipped with an orange rubber Strap, this is the first time in Patek Philippe’s sports men’s watch.

   Five years ago, the top sports watches had relatively few color choices. Just a blue or brown color scheme can make us ‘climax’. The earliest wave of bright colors in this wave of top sports watches should be Audemars Piguet. In the past few years, its Royal Oak offshore model has launched a number of watches with different colors, such as fluorescent yellow and fluorescent green. , Its sporty appearance with bright colors, especially suitable for spring and summer wear, as soon as it became available, it became a very sought-after color.

   In addition, Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Color Offshore was launched in less than half a year, and individual colors were once out of stock. For example, the first three fluorescent yellow, orange and green were launched, and green had a premium. The strong demand for colored high-end watches in this market is not difficult to understand. Just like choosing the most brightly colored styles when buying supercars, many people choose high-end sports watches. In addition to rugged and durable use, of course It is hoped that its appearance will be cooler and more gorgeous, and it will be more conspicuous when worn on the wrist, and the colorization just meets the psychology of this part of people.
   It can be said that the launch of the color offshore type has been very successful, which has also made many brands, especially those top brands, have partial sports watches. Since they have been so recognized by the market, these brands have also begun to look for themes in the past two years. Introduced some color models.
Roger Dubuy’s Benali and Lamborghini collaboration series
   For example, Roger Dubuy’s King Series cooperation watch models, cooperation with Pirelli tires and Lamborghini Sports Department watch models. These two cooperation models have different color schemes.

   The Pirelli tire cooperation model is a combination of Roger Dubuis’ star-shaped hollow miniature rotor and Pirelli color tires used in F1 racing. The color of the model also depends on the color of the different tires of Pirelli, including the latest orange. Pirelli watches, launched a total of 5 different color watches, should be available in all colors of Pirelli watches.

    In cooperation with the Lamborghini Sports Department, in addition to a rose gold, the remaining color models are based on the color of the Lamborghini sports car.
Two new Richard Mille watches

 
   The Richard Mille watch that has been in fire for two years has always maintained a vibrant color. At this year’s SIHH, Richard Mille only launched one watch, the RM53-01 PABLO MAC DONOUGH tourbillon watch. In addition to using advanced TPT® carbon fiber material, it also incorporates sky blue color into the In this watch, not only the strap and crown, but also the hours and hands are sky blue.

   The RM 11-03, which was released after the Geneva Motor Show, also uses the McLaren classic orange in cooperation with it. In order to make the case have the same color, orange is also used. Orange TPT® quartz fiber is also used in TPT. ® Carbon fiber case.
   From the beginning of Audemars Piguet to the current Patek Philippe, high-end sports watches have entered an era of ‘fantastic beauty’. The use of sharp contrast in color contrast is more attractive than the unique appearance. After all, the appearance of these models To a certain extent, it will not easily make big changes. For a long period of time, there is no difference in its appearance, but changing its color is relatively easy and is in line with the current trend of high-end sports watches. I believe in In the future, some brands will be added to the ‘fighting and fighting’ team one after another.

6900 Yuan Cost-effective Mido Mido Helmsman Series Rider Watch New Listing

In winter, because of the increase in clothes, there are more “taboos” for wearing watches. If you wear it too thick, you ca n’t plug it into the cuff, the crown is easy to hold your hands, and the metal chain is cold. A watch that is not too thick with a leather strap would be a better choice. Mido’s very sporty helmsman series this year has brought a very breakthrough watch selection-the Pedestrian Long Kinetic mechanical watch. This new work includes Horween Holvin cooperation models, a total of four. Although long-awaited, it has not been listed before until November. This time, we brought some vision to the Mido counter and personally experience the newly launched Mido helmsman watch.

Mido helmsman series rider long kinetic watch (magic gray)

   The first is the price. Three different color matching models of the Mido Helmsman Transcender Long Kinetic Watch are priced at 6,900 yuan. This is an attractive price because it is equipped with Caliber 80 movement and case. Both the strap and the strap have some very unique designs. Mido watches equipped with the same movement are generally between 7700 and 8500. Last year, the three-hand model of the helmsman series seeker series watch was priced at 6,900 yuan, which turned out to be very popular and sold well.

   At the time, unlike the previous helmsman series watches, the diameter of the case of the Transcender watch was enlarged to 44 mm, which should be the largest watch in the current Mido watch. The large size has been popular in recent years, making this sports style. The main series has a new attempt. Large-sized watches, of course, will look more atmospheric, and the dial space will be much larger, so the scale can also be made larger, coupled with the large crown design, cool black case, full of dynamic.

   At present, there are only two Crossover watches in the store we visited. The magic gray and khaki browns are very beautiful. The dial is decorated with Geneva stripes. The series is inspired by the DNA of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the suspension slings on the bridge. It symbolizes great human engineering and also represents a kind of strength and courage. Therefore, the stripes of the dial of the helmsman series have become one of the characteristics of the series.

   Highlighting the retro theme, the stainless steel case of the watch is black-plated and worn, and the strap is a retro suede-like surface belt, which feels comfortable and feels good.

Who Says You Ca N’t Bring A Watch With Golf? Hublot Shows You!

A city without a golf course is a city that does not know sports and taste. Golf is the only way for nobles to grow up.
—– Mr. Ye
October 25, 2017

golf

 
It is a transliteration of GOLF: four letters represent: Green, Oxygen, Light, Friendship. It means ‘green, oxygen, sunshine, friendship’, it is a kind of sport that combines the enjoyment of nature, exercise and games.
Golf was invented by these men in skirts
The first time I got into golf, I had to start with studying in Scotland.

When I was in college, I often went to St Andrews to play, not only because of the beauty of the city, but also because Prince William was studying there (he is my idol). At the time, I was a poor scholar and couldn’t afford it. I had to watch it. I watched a group of rich old men drinking whiskey and playing the game of letting small white balls into the hole. Slowly, I learned the origin and history of golf.

This game was invented by the Scots in the 15th century. Until now, St Andrews Course has been recognized as a mecca for golf. The greatest wish of every golfer is to be able to play a game at St Andrews in person, and it is the body that sets the rules for golf.

competition rules:
The player hits the small white ball with no more than 14 clubs. After 18 holes, the player with the least number of shots wins. The main point of the player’s scoring is the number of shots required to complete all the processes. The fewer swings, the better the result.

Even if you do n’t play golf, you still have a circle of golf,
The above talks for the dining table must be understood by the urban elite.
Can fish and bear’s paw have both?
There are not a few people who play golf in my cousin circle. They often ask me a question: Can I wear a watch while playing golf?
‘’ Mr. Ye, I’m sweating while playing, I’m wearing a leather watch, and it’s stinky for a long time. ‘’
 ‘’ Mr. Ye, after playing the ball, several watches are not allowed to go. Why is the quality of this watch so bad? ‘’
 ‘’ Mr. Ye, which sports watch is best for golf, do you recommend it? ‘’

I am often speechless and hurried to explain with the professional knowledge of balance wheel and hairspring (the listener is often confused), sometimes it is simply suggested that it is best not to wear a watch or something else.
However, golf is a slow sport and easy to forget time, but time is very important for golfers. You can watch the time with your mobile phone, but it is always inconvenient, so you need a sports watch. The most important thing is that when you talk about the game, you can also use a watch to increase mutual understanding and explore business opportunities.
But usually sports watches can’t withstand the impulse of swing. Until a few days ago, a paragraph from the world’s number one golfer Dustin Johnson solved my doubts.

He says:
‘The BigBangUnico golf watch can not only help me record my playing data, but the watch is very light and meets all my expectations for a golf watch. It is my ideal equipment.’

He finally said: It’s finally time to wear a watch.
Up close tasting

The case is made of Texalium®, a unique ultra-light composite material of Hublot—a composite of carbon fiber and aluminum. Each BigBangUnico golf watch is only 97.93 grams!

2 o’clock button: SHOT is engraved on the outside to indicate how many shots have been played.
 4 o’clock button: HOLE is engraved on the outside, indicating the hole.

MHUB1580 movement: Not only can you easily record the number of shots, but also calculate the total number of shots.

This watch is equipped with two ‘one-touch’ quick-change straps (not affected by sweat and exposure). The design of the white leather strap is inspired by professional golf gloves; the other strap is made of high-tech fiber with Velcro bonding to ensure that it fits perfectly on the wrist.
Finally, I can answer the questions of my table friends aloud: play golf, I suggest you buy the following Hublot, record the entire process of playing, so that even the caddie’s money is saved, ha ~

Mr. Ye’s company reminder: precautions for wearing a watch
First of all, except for the tourbillon and three-question parts, usually the two most expensive parts in watch maintenance: 1. balance and hairspring (heart) 2. dial (face), this metaphor is easy to understand, the heart is broken and out of phase, Is it a big deal?

This is a hairspring, thinner than hair. . .

 
The instantaneous impact force will also cause fatal damage to the movement’s speed regulation system and automatic winding system, it will also cause the hairspring to become entangled, the suspension spring to fall off, and the speed needle to be displaced. . .
Precautions

One: The more expensive the watch is, the stronger it is? This is the car, but not the watch. In fact, the higher the price, the more delicate it is, it is very slow and expensive to repair, you know, (except this section is specially customized for golf). If you play a golf watch with a tourbillon (the tourbillon is most afraid of vibration), that is death.
Two: As long as it is a sports watch, wrong. General sports watches are difficult to withstand the impact of swing.
3: Before wearing the watch and swinging the club, make sure that the professional golf watch strap fits tightly on the wrist, so that there will be no looseness of the watch.
Four: Golf is inseparable from the sun. Most of the time, the alligator strap is most afraid of sweat and exposure. Some dials are easily faded in the sun. Once fading, replacing the face can be expensive.
