Chronometer: Observatory Watch

“Chronometer”, this is a vocabulary you will encounter when you come into contact with a high-end watch. Many people feel watch in this title, and even directly understand it literally: those watches called “Astronomical Observatory” should be the most accurate professional watches worn by researchers from major observatories around the world, and even have some A function that is not accessible to ordinary people. In fact, in the field of watches, diving watches, aviation watches, racing watches, etc. are indeed developed for divers, aircraft pilots, racing drivers to meet their special needs, these watches are waterproof, anti-magnetic, robust and timing function The aspect has a unique design, and the “Astronomical Observatory” has nothing to do with the units that have large telescopes.

The Observatory’s watch and the slightly professional vocabulary – “Astronomical Observatory” are one thing, related to an official Swiss agency that tests the precision of watches for major watch manufacturers, abbreviated as C.O.S.C.

In order to obtain the Observatory certification, each movement must be tested in three temperature and five positions 24 hours a day, 24 hours a day, continuously at C.O.S.C. The items evaluated by the test included: average daily speed, average speed change, maximum speed change, speed difference at different positions, maximum speed difference, temperature influence value, and sustained speed.

The watch movement, which is rigorously tested by this mechanism, is the “Astronomical Watch Movement” and can be honored with the words “Chronometer” on the dial. There is also a beautiful certificate in the watch case. At present, more is the form of sampling inspection, that is, each pass represents one batch of qualified; the historical inspection is strictly strict, and C.O.S.C. often holds the time precision competition. In the early years, Patek Philippe won many awards in this competition.

However, it should be known that the mechanical watch meets the standard error of +4~-6 seconds per day because its accuracy meets the 99.99% specification. Like the Rolex watch, the watch difference can usually be controlled within two seconds. It is one of the most accurate mechanical watches in the world, so the accuracy of the mechanical movement chronometer is relative. If the accuracy of the watch is accurate, quartz The watch or atomic clock is many times stronger than the mechanical watch, but it loses the great charm of the machine.

Hublot Love Art

Recently, Hublot has collaborated with different artists to launch a series of brightly colored watches.

The first artist was Orlinski, who was known for his good use of red, and used a lot of red in many of his works of art – seeing here, do you think of something? Yes, Hublot is also a watch brand that is good at driving red, and both sides can be hit it off.

This cooperative version of Hublot is completely red on the case, bezel, hands, scales, straps, and other components. Only screws, crowns and skeleton movements are decorated with black, which is very cool. The size is 45mm, using a unique ceramic material, it has strong scratch resistance.

All of them are gold-plated and hollowed out, adding advanced ceramic materials to the case and bezel, and replacing the 12-point scale with the words “NJ” to show the identity of the collaborators.

The case and bezel of the first version are made of black ceramic and the overall look is relatively low-key.

The second version of the case, bezel and crown are made of Wang Jin and inlaid with a variety of gems, very gorgeous. It is said that this is also the favorite version of Nicky Jam.

Girard-Perregaux Releases The New All-Ceramic Watch Laureato Skeleton “Earth to Sky”

In the 2019 series, Girard-Perregaux launched the original “Earth to Sky” theme, which has been implemented on existing works (such as 1966) or new watches (such as Laureato Absolute). In fact, the name “Earth to Sky” refers to the combination of two colors, mixing the black of the vast universe with the blue of the earth. This “Earth to Sky” theme is now available on the brand’s signature Skeleton Laureato ceramic watch.

It is often said that black and blue do not match (at least in terms of fashion). Girard-Perregaux adopted this bold choice in the 2019 series, with a fully blackened watch case and strap with a gradient blue dial. When the metal was presented, the results were surprisingly good. For this reason, the same color scheme applies to the brand’s luxury sports watch Laureato, and its all-black ceramic version features a modern skeleton movement.

This new watch, called Laureato Skeleton “Earth to Sky”, is based on a watch we have already introduced. The revival of the Laureato series was in 2016. This watch was also launched for the 225th anniversary of the brand. It is a retro-style watch (at least in shape), but with modern case size and driven by a mechanical movement (1975 version is quartz). The real comeback of the Laureato series, as a complete standard series, took place in the 2017 SIHH, with a full range of sizes and impervious materials: 42mm, 38mm, 34mm diameter, steel, two-tone, titanium, ceramic or Gold, simple date function, chronograph, tourbillon, skeleton movement and more. So Laureato is no longer a separate watch, it is already a professional series.

For this “Earth to Sky” version, Girard-Perregaux chose Laureato Skeleton as the basis. The 42 mm case, made of black ceramic, still retains the same brushed and polished surface as the metal model. The case features a unique luxury sports watch, an octagonal bezel, a cushion-shaped case, a slim one-piece bracelet, and an all-black ceramic dial.

The “face” of the Laureato Skeleton “Earth to Sky” version is dark blue. As you would expect from a skeleton watch, the sapphire crystal shows the hollow core of the movement, surrounded by an internal flange, on which the hourly index floats. Both elements are PVD coatings. There are hours and minutes in the middle, and a small second hand is running at 10 o’clock. At 12 o’clock, you can see the regulator passing through the hollow plate.

The movement of the Laureato Skeleton “Earth to Sky” is based on the brand’s 1800 self-produced movement. This self-winding movement features a modern cutout design (including a central winding oscillating weight) with beautiful curves and sharp angles. The movement components are finished and beautiful, with straight ramen and polished bevels for 54 hours of power reserve. The Skeleton “Earth to Sky” watch is a non-limited edition and is priced at CHF 38,500. It will be listed soon, and it will take another few months to go to the Chinese mainland market.

Disney Watch Introduction

Disney watches, listen to the name also know that this is a brand with children’s needs, but this brand is not only children’s watches but mainly for 7-28 years old fashion men and women. So what about Disney watches? Let me introduce them to you.

Disney Disney watches reflect the coherence and perfection of modern urban and leisure styles. The young people who express fashion lead the world trend, wearing personality, generosity, and decentness. Mickey pays attention to details in craftsmanship, strives for excellence, and strives to create simplicity and elegance. And stylish personality style.

Driven by its animation, film and other fields, Disney Disney has also launched the watch industry. The theme of the watch is the characters in its animated film and television works. One of the cute and cute cartoon characters is loved by young people, especially children. Disney’s watches have many series, but also several ages, such as Mickey series, Barbie, princess, car mobilization, Disney series is generally quite fashionable for children under 15 years old. There are also fashionable men and women of 15-28 years old, unique steel belts, belts, diamonds, couples and other fashion styles, submarine diving watches and so on are all waterproof. The Disney watch reflects the coherence and perfection of the modern city and leisure as a whole, while also expressing the fashion young people to lead the world!

Disney Disney watches have more styles and electronic watches are cheaper. Basically, they start at 80 yuan, and some beautiful styles are slightly more expensive. The price of Disney Disney watches ranges from 20-7000 yuan, and the most popular models are concentrated between 100-200 yuan.

The first way to distinguish between true and false Mickey watches is to look at the manufacturer. In China, the only authorized watches are Yuhui and Shanghai Elegant Cui Silk series. The Taiwan version is only available in Shenzhen. Yongjun’s watches cannot be circulated online, so there is no need to consider them for the time being. Domestic authorized Mickey watches will be able to find relevant product information on the packaging and warranty cards, and only the information of the above two companies will have other. Please note that the Taiwan version is not allowed to be distributed at domestic counters, so they will not leave company information on the warranty card and packaging to avoid complaints from authorized manufacturers.

The second way to distinguish between true and fake Mickey watches: fake will not do very well. It is mainly reflected on the case, the strap is rough, there are burrs, and there are coated bubbles. In addition, it will be full of time. Most of the movements are made with disposable plastic. The core of the watch is very light.

Now Disney does not have the function of anti-counterfeiting or online inquiry. His fake security labels are not swatched for cost savings. If you look at the details, you can find the problem. The latest domestic red label (special attention, the security code shown in the figure does not repeat in the world. If you find it is a number or no security code at all, it must be fake.

Longines Quartz Watch Replacement Battery Does Not Go Troubleshooting

Quartz watches are relatively inexpensive, and the price is relatively low, and the time is accurate, so they are also loved by many watch friends. Longines quartz watches are undoubtedly an important choice for everyone to buy Swiss quartz watches.

As we all know, quartz watches need to be replaced after a certain number of years of use. Generally, we find that if the watch is not allowed to go, we need to consider whether we need to return a battery. Of course, more watch friends will wait until the watch is completely stopped.

It is relatively simple to replace the battery with a watch. Many watch friends will consider changing it by themselves, but often the watch will not go after the battery is replaced. Many watch friends will be a little scared. They worry that they are not operating properly and are damaged. The movement of the watch, in fact, is not necessary, we can slowly find out the problem and solve it.

  1. Do not panic when the quartz watch does not go. It may just be that the battery is not pressed with a screwdriver, and it may be loose. It may also be that the crown of the Longines watch is not pressed. These are all possible problems. Some watch friends have already changed the battery, but they have forgotten these details. Without checking, the watch will be reopened, which will greatly damage the body of the watch.

2, then the question to be considered is whether the battery has no electricity. When we eliminate the error, we must check the problem of the new battery. It may be a fake or expired battery and a newly replaced battery. It is also an old battery or a bad battery with insufficient power.

At this time, we need to remove the battery voltmeter to measure the voltage. If there is no voltage or the battery voltage is insufficient, then it is necessary to replace the new battery.

  1. If the battery voltage is normal, then it is necessary to consider the circuit problem. First, observe whether there is a foreign matter or rust and rust on the positive and negative contact springs of the contact battery. If so, the battery contact reed and the battery should be fully cleaned. And then reinstall it.
  2. If the above processing still fails to solve the problem, then the multimeter must be used to measure the circuit of the Longines watch. If the multimeter reads abnormally, it can only be sent to the repair shop to replace the coil or repair the movement. Non-professionals can handle it.
