Those Who Make Handmade Things

Tiffany & Co, the top jewelry brand and diamond authority preferred by many celebrities as wedding jewellery. Tiffany, on October 15th, carefully created a beautiful and romantic ‘Tiffany Wedding Ceremony’ at the Taikoohui Store in Guangzhou, and specially invited sweet lovers who are about to enter the wedding hall to explain carefully how to choose an engagement ring. As one of the very few jewellery brands with extraordinary hand-sculpting technicians, there are even more hand-sculpting techniques demonstrated by Tiffany carving masters from afar in the United States. The reporter conducted an exclusive interview with the city’s master of carving from a traditional apprenticeship. The master engraving hand-engraved Harold Gainer (Tiffany’s chief sculptor) on the design masterpiece.

Traditional hand-carved,
Not just for love
What is the most special work you have ever carved? Is there a moving story?
Harold Gainer: I know that most people must think so. It must be a love story to find Tiffany’s custom sculpture. In fact, for me, the most special story is a work signed by more than 200 people. One of them will be given to them soon. Departing colleague. Because of the large number of people and the different signature styles, the work at that time seemed to take me 2 months, but this work that bears the blessings of so many people is very special.
Have you carved Chinese? What type of patterns do Chinese people like to carve?
OldHarold Gainer: Because I don’t understand Chinese, if you give me a Chinese name, I will also follow the method of drawing. The interesting thing is that you can see the writer’s handwriting. The Chinese characters I have carved so far are mainly the Chinese characters of the brand. At present, many Chinese people still choose to sculpt names and letters, which is concise and timeless. Of course, our brand’s traditional floral designs are also very popular.
Old man challenging the laws of physics
Is the law of physics sacred and unchallengeable? Is the challenger a newborn calf not afraid of tigers or a talented artist?
In the field of clock technology, if a mechanical chronograph is to calculate 1 / 1000th of a second, in general, the balance frequency must reach 3.6 million times (500 Hz). However, the above-mentioned laws only apply to the three-dimensional three-dimensional world, and they may not apply in the four-dimensional space (that is, time). The Montblanc Time Writer II double balance 1000 chronograph released this year by breaking this law has a 1/1000 second timekeeping function, but its balance frequency is only 50 Hz. On November 2nd, the watch that debuted at the beginning of the SIHH finally arrived in China. Before the grand ‘Top of Time · Forgemaker’ multimedia theater performance, he came to China with Montblanc Menela Institute and Montblanc The watchmaker and general manager of the Villeret Watchmaking Workshop, Di Mizo Cabidou, an old man with more than 45 years of watchmaking experience, is responsible for answering technical questions about this ‘beyond the laws of physics’ watch.
In physical theory, to achieve the accuracy of one thousandth of a second, a 500 Hz balance is usually required. How does this watch achieve the accuracy of one thousandth of a second with a 50 Hz balance?
米 Dimiso Kabidu: The frequency of 50 Hz is 360,000 vibrations per hour. This technology has existed for decades. We know very well the characteristics and difficulties of this technology. In theory, if you want to reach thousandths of a second, the more traditional method is to simply increase the vibration frequency, which can be achieved by 3.6 million (500 Hz) balance wheel balances per hour. However, high frequency will bring many technical limitations. Its disadvantages include that the reading of the dial is very difficult and complicated. Secondly, the power reserve is insufficient. There is only enough power reserve of 1 minute or 2 minutes. So I think we must find other ways to bypass these physical limitations, so that our balance wheel can achieve such high accuracy when it is rotated at a high level. Now that we do this, we can extend the life of this watch and reduce its friction. The second reading is clear and easy to understand. The third power reserve is very sufficient and can reach a power reserve that is 40 times higher than traditional methods.
I am very happy that we can find other ways to introduce a thousand-second-second timing function with completely different mechanical principles. This makes our watch industry richer.
最大 What are the biggest difficulties encountered in the development of this watch?
米 Dimicao Kabidu: Our new movement does not follow the traditional old way of increasing frequency, but chooses a new road that previous people have never gone through. Therefore, we have done a lot of new experiments in improving stability to ensure the stability of power and the inertia and balance of the entire watch.
In fact, our original idea was born 10 years ago. It was originally envisaged that there would be two balance wheels, two kinds of power to separate it. But also during the whole process, I discussed with different watchmakers, and our ideas complemented and improved each other, and we have what they are today.
