Before the end of the estimated Patek fans with Vacheron Constantin fans will going to be a major conflict, but you may rest assured, is only battle of words on the Internet. Because this is the Vacheron Constantin 260 years, and last year was the 175 anniversary of Patek, are branded big commemoration of the year, sectarian bias is inevitable! Last year’s commemorative Watches Patek Ref.5175 known as the new King, set 20 features all in one, needs both sides displayed. The watch was only sold 6, ordinary fans only see, money can not buy, and annual flowers who became a hot topic, Patek Philippe made a 2014 bezel eye.
As an old rival, Vacheron Constantin is not reconciled to the limelight Patek, riveting enough strength for 260 years of this table, and plan published on September 17, six months began to reveal details in advance, but do not give any information, keep football fans in suspense and curiosity of the public, is bound to 2015 to Vacheron Constantin bezel years.
Vacheron Constantin said it is the most complicated in the history of pocket watches, feature number than Ref.5175 Patek watches, apparently directed at the 150 anniversary of the commemoration of the Calibre 89 Pocket Watch Patek integrated 33 – a feature, known as the history of Pictet Florence Li the most complicated timepieces. Vacheron Constantin fans will be restless, Patek Philippe fan but would not agree to, and “King of the table” again.
No matter how much the Vacheron Constantin pocket watch actual functions as a top-level complex features one of the most important indicators–timekeeping function, there must be, of course, released details of the photos have shown that self-Crow, Crow, three questions, mute, silent mode at night as many alignment work.
In modern watchmaking sector, are more exaggerated, can make good time tables are the only standard to determine whether the top brands!
Whether it is the 150 anniversary of the Calibre 89 Pocket Watch Patek, or 175 anniversary watch Ref.5175, big Crow, little Crow, three-minute repeater, the alarm function is standard, Ref.5175 and date chimed, dynamic and striking status display and timekeeping, even timekeeping function from it the name Ref.5175 – master of string sound watch.
In the 19th century era of no lights, timekeeping function is a basic method was informed that time of the night, just as later developed luminous material, painted night light time scales and a pointer for easy reading in the dark is the same, that time Pocket Watch timekeeping function is a very normal thing.
Modern people once again have the time table is used exclusively for playing: fingertip operation of pleasure when you start three questions, ears when listening to music and comfortable with inner joy when you tell time, and watch complex gear, gear, Springs as well as the sound operation of the mechanical beauty … … These requirements is watches product incomparable, is one reason modern Minute Repeater is almost sky-high.
Pocket watches, watches, timekeeping function Ming table and ask, first press the start mode is divided into two categories: hence the name too weird, ringing is automatic when the time, asked the table requires people to do “ask”.
Ming simply divided into big Crow, little ringing and buzz of three: large and small automatic ringing on the hour and every quarter of an hour to strike the difference is clock, ringing the complete quote, while ringing a few carved; alarm is set when the automatic start time.
Ask the classification table is more like has asked Dan Wen, two and three, or asked, half quarter Repeater and five minutes to ask, but the classification is based primarily on timekeeping accuracy, are representative of most of them are precise to the minute Minute Repeater, asked of the scale there is little accuracy is not high, or five minutes to ask.
Three asked table most with playing fun, General is “Shi, and carved, and points” of time mode, most is two sound spring and two sound hammer structure: two root sound spring match their sound hammer can percussion out a high low two species pitch, “Shi” to bass reported out, “carved” to level collection sound reported out, “points” is is to treble reported out.
12:59, for example, generally three tables so striking: Fiyta co star Dan deductive light series smart
Then quarter of an hour, knocking 3 high and low chords of “Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong”
Last minute, striking 14 treble “Ding, Ding, Ding,……”
Quiet down patience listening, tell Ming sound, Moji times, then in brain in the imagine out clockwise and minute of indicates location, will informed has three asked table reported out of time can Ming reported out “Shi, and carved, and points”, three asked table is relies on three gold was called “spiral shaped round” of core gear: first gold is records minutes of “minutes spiral shaped round”, second gold is will minutes cumulative Hou of “carved Bell spiral shaped round”, and last a records hours of “hours spiral shaped round”. Behind these two really shaped as the name suggests, like a snail, minute snail more like windmills or boomerang.
Shi meter normal walking process in the, time information synchronization records in three a “spiral shaped round” Shang, dang through sliding rod or button started time device Hou, “spiral shaped round” Shang of time information through series gear, and tooth article, and cam, and card spring, passed to sound hammer, sound hammer has rhythm to percussion sound spring, will will now of time “reported” has out.
Minute Repeater and more play, on the above basic, increases tone beep hammer, you can tap a variety of pitches; machinery increased activities will be in line with time; you can also change the way the time, such as quote “, the great,” and so on.
Increase the number of sound beep hammer, adding more combination of pitch and tone, given time table more musical interest, such as Patek Philippe Ref.5175 watch is the third spring, every moment has a specific combination of chords; root while the Calibre 89 has five springs, four for time, v is much special.
Product home years Qian also launched had a paragraph four spring four hammer of Super complex function wrist table, with four a sound spring, wrist table can percussion out four species different Mono, with hundred term: Patek Philippe Calibre 89 pocket watch as, regardless of is since Ming mode, also is three asked mode, known as are can tolls out most real of Westminster big Bell Carillon, is London that famous of Big Ben “Duang,Duang” of time voice.
Increased activity is a good way to add q table viewing pleasure, many brands have launched this kind of work, such as Athens, Blancpain, and yakedeluo. Yakedeluo launched in 2012, the year bird Minute Repeater is one of the activities I.
Started three asked Hou, dial Shang two only into bird, three only young bird are will with of activities up: a only into bird slowly expand wings, addition a only into bird is kept of bow to young bird feeding, two only early out shell of young bird scramble into bird mouth in the of bug, addition a only young bird is broken shell and out, joined to scramble bug of war in the……
This watch of birds in stereo image rendering, color fidelity, has five of the many activities, there are waterfalls flowing, very suitable for play to watch.
Change the way the time and have to mention Langer launched in 2015, the new “OWL” three watches, it is based on “time, very,” model chimed, “owls” unique jump-time display dial, this time was appropriate.
Also taking 12:59 as an example, starting three button, “owls” Timekeeping Mode is as follows:
Very, striking 5 high and low sounds “Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong”
Last minute, knocking 9 treble “Ding, Ding, Ding,……”
Hammers strike sound spring voice number is what you see display numbers, according to Langer’s is “What you hear is what yousee”. “The OWL” instantaneous jump show is in itself an interesting playing features, coupled with the highly fit “time, very,” three minute repeater, the minute repeater captured the hearts of many players.
You may have a question, why is the traditional three questions “, engraved, while” instead of “time, very,”? This Western habit-related: Western Digital systems, the “quarter” is a common concept, is the one-fourth unit is the idiomatic expression, it’s a bit like the Chinese saying “repose” is equivalent to 60 years.
Dollars in a quarter dollar coin, for example, is $ one-fourth, or 25 cent; for example the previously mentioned Patek once every 25 years celebration, because 25 is the one-fourth century, is a very important point!
Direct dial you can learn, especially when rod, or digital mix stick hour markers, or diamonds hour markers, you will find the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock it would be different, because an hour is divided into four quarters, one-fourth hours need to be highlighted! So it is easy to see why the traditional three questions is “, carved, when” it, such as 12:59, in traditional 12.3 14 minutes, rather than we are accustomed to 12.59 points.
Playing with ask table fun a lot, but table prices are beyond the means of most watch lovers, maybe this time prices are artificially high, have asked the table really is a luxury thing.
