The Leader In The Tourbillon Battle-jaeger-lecoultre 1

When Jaeger-LeCoultre released the first-generation ball-shaped tourbillon in 2003, the watch industry was setting off a wave of ‘tourbillon’, and the appearance of the ball-shaped tourbillon ended to some extent I called the ‘Battle of the Tourbillon’. During this period, different brands have successively released their own tourbillon watch with a longitudinal structure. At that time, the tourbillon was always regarded as an extremely complicated and unique craft. Theoretically, at the time, only the top watch brands in the world were able to make extremely delicate tourbillon watches, and it was not something that everyone could have. The emergence of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon pushed the development design of the tourbillon to a whole new level, and became the leader in this ‘war.’

   Speaking of the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand, the spherical tourbillon No. 1 is undoubtedly a unique masterpiece in the Jaeger-LeCoultre product line. Since 1890, the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop in the Jura Valley began to produce super complicated watch series. The Tudor 1 is the first attempt of Jaeger-LeCoultre to use super complicated functions on the watch. The movement is composed of no less than 679 parts, which has special historical significance. Four complications are particularly dazzling in this movement: a spherical tourbillon, a perpetual calendar, a double retrograde month display, and a time equation. On top of these amazing features, the Cal. 177 movement also has an 8-day power reserve. All of this, from the initial assembly to the final adjustment, is done by a watchmaker.

   The name of the Tuo Tuo 1 originates from Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most proud achievement in 2003: a spherical tourbillon rotating around two axes. The invention of the tourbillon, as we all know, is to balance the effect of gravity on the balance wheel and cause the travel time error. But this 19th century device invented by Mr. Breguet is only limited to pocket watches. For a wristwatch that constantly changes its orientation, such an invention cannot meet the needs of daily wear. It can be said that after inventing a set of tourbillons that can run in two axes, Jaeger-LeCoultre really invented a tourbillon suitable for wristwatches.
   Of the 90 parts of the spherical tourbillon, the steps from grinding to polishing and final assembly are all done by hand, adding less than one gram in weight. Only the best watchmakers can participate in the production of this fine art. At the same time, the design of the entire watch is done by the most advanced CNC machine tools. Its in-depth research and frequent testing made it possible for the entire system to run impeccably and perfectly when the first spherical tourbillon prototype was assembled.

   On the back of the watch, behind the sapphire glass is a retrograde leap year indicator needle. The back of the entire movement is made of German silver, which makes the entire movement look more atmospheric and uneven. The making of the dial is also a great achievement for Jaeger-LeCoultre. It adopts a full-hollow gold sandstone dial and is decorated with a circular pattern. It is even more rare to present the structure that was originally used to fix complex functions in a hollowed out form. Through the front sapphire glass, the blue lacquered hands elegantly touch the dial, which complements the dial. The artist who designed this watch carved every part with extremely delicate brush strokes, and a little carelessness would break the whole part. The manufacture of the sapphire dial is also extremely delicate, with the front and back sides polished, and almost no bevel can be seen. The thickened mirror surface reaching the 6 o’clock position makes it possible for the viewer to enjoy the stunning posture of the tourbillon under the glass at any angle.
   Based on this, Jaeger-LeCoultre also released bi-wing tourbillon watches and other watches in the SIHH Geneva International High-end Watch & Clock International Salon in 2012, but none of them had the prestige of the Tuo 1. In my opinion, the Tudor 1 has every reason to be Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most important complication watch of this century. The performance of the Tudor 1 at the auction house further proves this view, even higher than the retail price at that time. For a watch that is not Patek Philippe, such a performance is undoubtedly very amazing. Investigating the reason, it may be that the production of the Tudor series was scarce, and the styles presented by the Tudor 1 and Tudor 2 and the later launched Tudor 3 are quite different. It is worth noting that when the Tourbillon 1 was released in 2003, the spherical tourbillon products on the market were extremely scarce. Among them, the only substitutes were Greubel Forsey and Frank Mille, but two All models do not have the ornamental and complicated features of the Tudor 1. In addition, the release of the Tudor 1 in 2004 is in the middle of the tourbillon’s popularity in the last century, so the Tudor 1 can rise to become the ultimate watch of this period.

   In November 2017, the world’s last one of the 30 pieces of the Tudor 1 was announced for sale, and there was only one in Greater China. In addition to buying this watch again at the auction house, you can only purchase Jaeger-LeCoultre and Jaeger-LeCoultre on three sides at the same time to apply for possession of the Tudor 1. It took Jaeger-LeCoultre nearly 15 years to complete the production of the entire limited product. But there are only a few people who can see this amazing work with their own eyes, but I believe Jaeger-LeCoultre has no intention of satisfying those buyers who can afford this expensive watch, and more often, it is timed In the long course of history, struggle, breakthrough, and challenge all impossible determinations.

Star Trek With The Little Prince Iwc Pilot’s Hand Chronograph ‘little Prince’ Special Edition

May 19, 2015——IWC launches a new special edition of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph “Little Prince”, with its unique planet-jumping week display, to accompany you and the small The prince embarked on an interplanetary journey. The inner circle of the dial is arranged around seven planets, and a golden light blooms every day, symbolizing that the famous little prince described by Anthony Saint Exupery visited a new planet on his interstellar journey. The back of the watch is also engraved with the seven planets and is marked with the names of the inhabitants of each planet where the little prince stays.

   A king who ruled a fictional kingdom, a businessman who thought he owned the entire planet, and a geographer who never left his desk, the little prince set out from his little planet to find friends, and encountered various things on the journey Various strange characters from other planets. The interstellar journey described in Anthony Saint Exupery’s most successful literary work, The Little Prince, became the source of inspiration for IWC. Inspired by it, IWC has carefully crafted a new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph ‘Little Prince’ special model (model: IW371807) with charming mechanical functions. ‘The collaboration with the Anthony Saint-Exupery Youth Foundation provides inspiration for several of our special edition pilot watches,’ said Georges Kern, chief executive of IWC. ‘Since the book’ Little Prince ‘celebrated its 70th anniversary two years ago, we have introduced many different models to pay tribute to the young heroes in the story. The special edition not only has an exquisite needle-tracking device, but also a childlike star-like element. Maybe it doesn’t look strange at first glance, but it is very subtle.
   On the night blue dial with a unique cockpit design, the jumping planetary dial around the central ring of the dial is a big surprise of the watch. On this glamorous week display, a different glittering golden star is lit every day. However, the days of the week do not change in a particular order, with flashing Venus seemingly jumping across seven different positions on the dial. The hollow stars on the dial symbolize the planet the little prince once visited. The names of these planets and the people who inhabit them are engraved on the bottom of the watch in the same order on the dial: the king, the vanity admirer, the drunkard, the merchant, the lantern holder, the geographer, and the rose that the little prince remembers— —After ending his adventure, the little prince returned to Rose. At the bottom of the table you can see the planet this little boy with wheat-colored blonde hair is visiting, which is really an interesting experience. The center of the case is also decorated with a portrait of the little prince. The wearer can make the golden stars jump to another position by turning the crown. In other words, which star on the dial is lit on seven days a week is entirely up to the wearer.

    The complication of the chronograph hand also now has a place in the Pilot’s Watch “Little Prince” special edition series. Chase chronograph, also known as rattrapante, is a watchmaking challenge that is often underestimated. With two superimposed chronograph seconds hands, the wearer can accurately record split times in as little as one minute. The fascination of the special edition of the pilot’s chase chronograph ‘Little Prince’ is that it not only has all the technical characteristics of the pilot’s watch, but also has a poetic design element. The powerful features of this watch include self-winding, time, date, star-shaped week display with jumping, small second hand with stop device, 12-hour cumulative chronograph function, hand tracking function, and stable assembly to withstand sudden steps The pressure-reduced double-sided anti-reflective sapphire glass mirror also includes the strong antimagnetic protection provided by the soft iron inner case of the IWC pilot watch. The night blue dial reflects the elegant sportsmanship of this watch. The hands and scales are treated with Super-LumiNova® *, which ensures clear reading even at night. The lettering on the bottom of the table clearly indicates that the watch is limited to 1000 pieces. The Pilot’s Chronograph Chronograph “Little Prince” comes with a brown matte calfskin strap with beige stitching.

Worth Buying

In other words, at this year’s Basel watch exhibition, various brands have presented a variety of excellent works, which is very shocking. Among them, although many timepieces are presented to the public for the first time with designs with complex and innovative materials, it always makes me feel that there is a lack of something related to ‘historical heritage’. After all, for this kind of precision machinery manufacturing, there is a long history of imprint, and the lasting meaning must be endless.
Past Autavia series: antique market, rave reviews
  For many watches, the term ‘antique’ sometimes means that the timepiece is of high value.

TAG Heuer Autavia series antique timepieces

  On March 10, 2015, TAG Heuer launched the Autavia Cup selection event, which aims to select the new Autavia replica watches to be released in 2017. The public showed an extremely strong interest in the Autavia Cup. In the first round of selection, thousands of enthusiasts participated in the voting. It can be seen that the Tag Heuer Autavia watch is very popular among the public, but its antiques Good things are hard to find in the market, and the recurrence of the Autavia series is also an inevitable development trend.

TAG Heuer launches first dashboard timepiece for other pilots

  The term Autavia is derived from the abbreviations of automobile and aviation, and originally represented the dashboard timer used in racing cars and airplanes from 1933 to 1957. In the trend closely related to Tag Heuer and sporting events, in 1933, Heuer introduced the first dashboard timepiece specially designed for pilots, which can run continuously for eight days without winding, and has excellent readability. After discontinuing the dashboard timer, the Autavia series name is still valid.

TAG Heuer launches first dashboard timepiece for pilots

  Although many people associate the Autavia name with the background of the car, personally, in fact, the flying elements show a lot, whether it is a stopwatch with an instrument panel on a heavy car or an airplane, or a relief on the back of the case Helicopters, TAG Heuer want everyone to know that they are not just about racing.

  As one of the brand’s main watch series, Autavia Chronograph has witnessed three ‘first’ of Tag Heuer:

Autavia chronograph first appeared in 1962

  First of all, before that, TAG Heuer’s chronographs were only marked by the model number, and Autavia was the first chronograph with a formal name of TAG Heuer. It was created by Jack Heuer at the age of 30 for the company. First watch. With the rapid development of various fierce competitions, as a racing enthusiast, Mr. Jack Heuer, knowing the market demand for wrist chronograph models, officially converted the production of this instrument into a wearable ‘ Timer. ‘

  Secondly, Tag Heuer is the publisher of Calibre 11, the world’s first automatic chronograph movement, and this Calibre 11 is used in the Autavia series. Later, Cal11, Cal12, Cal15 and other movements were derived, collectively referred to as the Chronomatic family, and their predecessors for research and development were all Calibre 11 movements.

Autavia 1163 MH (first edition of 1969)
  The first product launched by TAG Heuer in 1969 using the Cal11 movement was Autavia 1163 MH. The first version featured the ‘Chronomatic’ name above the ‘Heuer’ shield. The word ‘Autavia’ appeared on the lower part of the dial. ‘Chronomatic’ was larger and more competitive than later versions. Its production time is very limited (1969) and it is very rare. At present, in the antique market, it may be controlled in the range of $ 20,000 or even higher.

  Finally, Autavia is TAG Heuer’s first chronograph with a rotating bezel. The rotating bezel can calculate the elapsed time or track the time in the second time zone. The stainless steel case ensures a water-resistant depth of 330 feet. This bezel is very useful for racers or navigators. Compared with TAG Heuer’s earlier chronographs, Autavia chronographs have increased in size, offering dual chronograph models or triple chronograph models with 12-hour timing .

  Later, in the mid-1960s, TAG Heuer continued to improve the Autavia chronograph, the bezel became thinner, and the hands were brightly polished metal to complement the shiny hour markers on the dial. In order to comply with safety regulations, the luminous material was changed from radium to thorium, as evidenced by the small ‘T’ mark on the dial. The above two models are particularly important in the history of TAG Heuer. The three chronograph models have been worn by F1 world champion Jochen Rindt, while the dual chronograph models have been used by Indianapolis 500 and F1 champion Mali. Mario Andretti has worn it.

  It can be seen that in that era, Autivia and speed and passion became the eternal memory of young people of that era.
Today’s new Autivia series: high value + new technology
  Appearance style: retro, fashion
  Today the brand continues the classics, reopens a new chapter, draws inspiration from the original representative models, presents the new Autavia series, and introduces it to the altar as an independent series.

The heritage of the Tag Heuer Autavia series

  Here, a friend really asked, why did the continuation of the classic launch a three-hand model instead of a chronograph? First of all, this is not a replica watch, but a new work of TAG Heuer for the Autavia series. Secondly, in terms of price, I think the relative cost of a three-hand watch will be much lower.

New Autavia series-7 models (steel, bronze)

  There are 7 models in the Autavia series. There are two kinds of case materials: stainless steel and bronze. The 42 mm diameter design is more suitable for the wrist size.

New Autavia watch-stainless steel

  The 60-minute graduated black, blue ceramic or stainless steel two-way rotating bezel highlights the sporty feel of the watch.

New Autavia watch-bronze

  The dial’s color scheme is particularly trendy. The smoked dial is available in black, gray or blue. The date window is at 6 o’clock. The hour markers, hours, minutes, and seconds are coated with SuperLuminova® fluorescent paint, so you can read the time even on a dark adventure.

  The crown design draws inspiration from pilot watches and chronographs that use oversized crowns. The size of the XL is designed to allow pilots to operate accurately while wearing gloves.

 The engraved caseback at the bottom of the case combines tire and propeller design elements, reminiscent of the geometry of an aircraft’s propeller, while using an ultra-wear-resistant steel coating to protect the movement.

  The strap or bracelet of each model in the Autavia series is interchangeable and can be operated at home without using any tools. This design is very convenient and can be used in various outdoor adventure occasions. The leather calfskin strap is available in dark brown or light brown.
  Technical manufacturing: professional and exclusive

Tag Heuer Isograph carbon composite Calibre 5 movement

  The new Autavia three-hand watch is equipped with the Calibre 5 movement certified by the Observatory. It adopts the high-end carbon composite hairspring introduced by Tag Heuer earlier this year. The combination of the movement and the Isograph carbon composite hairspring ensures that the watch can accurately move the time.

Tag Heuer Isograph carbon composite Calibre 5 movement

  Behind the invention of this new hairspring design is a team of mathematicians, physicists and scientists from TAG Heuer. Carbon composite hairspring not only shakes the traditional watchmaking world, but also improves the performance of models using this patented technology. Its advantages are that the hairspring is lightweight, low in density, hardly affected by gravity and impact, and antimagnetic. Made entirely by TAG Heuer, the design and production are carried out in its laboratory in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
 If you are interested in such timepieces that have developed from antique history, then you may wish to try the new Autavia series. With its serious historical pedigree and brand-new technology, you ca n’t afford to lose or be fooled. Coupled with the high value and low price, it is extremely cost-effective. At this time, Tag Heuer is conducting a tour of AUTOVIA antique watches. The tour information is attached below. Interested friends may wish to take a closer look at AUTOVIA timepieces on the spot. It is reported that the price of the watch is between RMB 25,800-31,900.
