Hundreds of years ago, in the era of glory and dreams, the sextant took human beings farther into the ocean. Zunhuang applied this basic nautical instrument design to watch design, creating such a breathtaking design as Zunhuang six-point meter JUVENIA Sextant. This design conquered Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp, the on-screen captain Jack Sparrow, has an unruly heart and always yearns for the sea and sky.
For more than a century, the timepieces produced by Zunhuang JUVENIA have always been excellent and innovative, and outstanding. In 1860, the master watchmaker Jacques Didisheim founded St. Emperor in St. Imier, Switzerland, and in 1914 moved the headquarters to La-Chaux-de- Fonds), Zunhuang JUVENIA factory headquarters is still located here. With his dedication and enthusiasm for watchmaking technology, J. Didison has drawn up a vibrant and leading brand of watch emperor, which has become a symbol of fashion at the time. JUVENIA is full of creativity in the manufacture of movements, such as the roller gear operation that was first developed and applied in 1880, and was exhibited in Switzerland in 1914 at the time, the world’s thinnest single-layer mechanical core mechanism. The diameter of the movement is only It is 9.5 mm, and its thickness is only 2.5 mm. It is still called the immortal masterpiece of watchmaking.
Zunhuang JUVENIA uses sophisticated and unique craftsmanship to make timepieces. This exquisiteness was watched and loved by the aristocrats of the East more than a hundred years ago. In the collections of the imperial court royals in the Forbidden City Palace Museum in Beijing, Zunhuang JUVENIA is a pair of Qing Dynasty. The couple’s enamel gold watch made by the noble couple was the only timepiece with a brand record at the time.
Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has played the role of Captain Jack since 2003 and has easily swept over the world’s more than 3 billion US box office through an unprecedented witty gesture. Rather than the ridiculous myths that fascinate people, it is better to say that it was once a vast sky. The era of great sailing has inspired the fairy tale-like imagination of human beings. King JUVENIA first published the six-point meter in the 1940s, and launched a retro version more than 50 years later. At that time, it became the darling of Johnny Depp’s wrist. He twice wore the six-point meter and appeared on the world’s leading men’s magazine. Esquire (gentleman), who became the cover character, shows that he has a soft spot for the six-point instrument. The simple design of the six-point instrument captures his uninhibited heart. The precise marks and scales not only repeat the legend of human machine tool manufacturing, but also record the ambition and pride of the sea and sky.
The sextant, which seems to be a simple machine and structure, can measure latitude by observing the height of the celestial body and the angle of the target, and has taken human beings farther into the ocean. The birth of the sextant is a leap in the manufacture of human machine tools. Its principle was originally proposed by Isaac Newton, but it was not until 1757 that Captain John W. Campbell clamped the measurement of the sextant. The angle increased to 120 degrees and developed into a sextant. The invention and development of this instrument run through almost the entire era of great navigation. This simple design is still widely used in navigation and aviation to determine the observer’s own position.
In 2012, JUVENIA once again launched a new version of Sextant.3 for the six-point instrument, paying tribute to the blue sea and the era of glory and dreams. JUVENIA uses a sextant to the dial design. The simple white dial is set with a ‘semi-circular scale arc’ to display hours, rose gold hands to display minutes, and ‘compass’ hands to display seconds; a window display at three o’clock date.
The diameter of the 18k rose gold case has been increased from 34mm to 40mm, making it more suitable for men. The case back has a transparent sapphire crystal caseback, which makes the movement clear at a glance. This design embodies the temperament of Zunhuang JUVENIA’s restrained, unobtrusive and independent nature.
