What is a dual time zone watch
  The world is getting smaller and smaller, people move around the world frequently, traveling, studying or working. Frequently adjusting the watch is obviously not a wise practice, and instead it is a dual time zone watch. A dual time zone watch is a watch that can display the second time zone (commonly referred to as a ‘GMT’ watch). For an analog watch, there are two adjustable hour hands, one indicating the local (first time zone) time. The other hour hand indicates the time in the second time zone.
  Of course, there are watches with a dial that is marked with various time zones around the world (each time zone is represented by one of the famous cities), and the time in the second time zone is read by turning this dial.
  Below, I will recommend several dual time zone watches for you to refer to and learn from each other.
 Cartier Calibre Multi-Time Zone Watch

 The day and night hands of the sun and moon symbol on the dial below the center of the watch indicate the time of departure and the main hand of the watch indicates the time of destination. You can magnify the destination display with a magnifying glass on the side. This design can avoid the inconvenience caused by the dial’s too many instructions.
  As long as you press the turn button, you can read the time of 24 reference time zone cities. Each time you press the turn button, you can display each city and the corresponding time, and the corresponding time between the reference city and the travel city.
  The last major innovation of the Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch is the ability to switch between summer and winter time. During the five months when daylight saving time is implemented, you can switch between daylight saving time and winter time by simply reading different levels of time on the city dial.
 Rolex’s new Oyster Perpetual SKY-DWELLER

 As the newborn of the Oyster family, the Oyster Perpetual SKY-DWELLER watch presented at the Baselworld 2012 exhibition is a highly innovative watch with superb technology and easy operation. SKY-DWELLER relies on 14 patented technologies (of which 5 are new patents), including dual time zone display, that is, the dial’s central hand indicates the local time, and an eccentric 24-hour dial shows the time in the reference time zone.
 It also comes with an innovative annual calendar device called SAROS, inspired by an astronomical phenomenon that only needs to be adjusted once a year between February and March. In addition, there are 12 small windows around the dial to display the month. This watch is designed for those who require the watch to be practical, easy to use and elegant.
 Omega Aqua Terra GMT dual time zone

 The Haima Aqua Terra GMT dual time zone watch will feature a 43 mm diameter case, which is available in 18K red gold, stainless steel, and red gold with steel. Paired with the iconic ‘Teak Concept’ dial of the Aqua Terra model, the vertical texture is reminiscent of the teak deck on a luxury yacht.
 In addition to the central hour hand, minute hand, and second hand, the dial also has a GMT hand that rotates once every 24 hours, thereby achieving the function of reading the time in two places at the same time.

Elegant Gentleman’s Watch Carl F. Bucherer Watch

Carl F. Bucherer, who became famous with the mass-produced automatic ring A1000 movement, actually put a lot of energy into the movement, when the ETA movement was announced to be discontinued Take the self-made movement to go out of your own way. After the introduction of the A2000 movement that inherited the A1000 movement in 2016, it has consolidated the main watch series of Bucherer. The impressive signature ring-shaped automatic dial has fine-tuned the internal parts. After that, it was also more affordable than the A1000 movement, and the price was almost half that of the A1000 movement. The new rose gold Marion Dragon series also began to think about men’s formal dresses after the ‘big play face color’ in 2017. The future of the watch, from the compact size of 40.6mm to the diameter of 43mm, adds to the look of men’s wrist style.

The diameter of the watch has been increased from 40.6mm to 43mm, which not only enriched the diversity of the Bucherer product line, but also increased the size of the new model with a touch of masculinity, and the watch design is more versatile.

Feature 1: Added 43mm and increased multiple choices
The consistent wedge-shaped timescales and sword-shaped hands are the simple DNA of the Maliron series. No matter what features it is equipped with, the players will feel a neat design. Since its launch in 2016, the Malilong series has become one of the main models of Bucherer. , Originated from the Latin ‘Manuaria’, which means ‘controlled by the hand’. This positioning is mainly for the male market. Originally, the Malilong series mainly had a 40.6mm diameter. The new 43mm diameter was introduced. To strengthen the diversity of the overall product line, Bao Qilai changed its multi-color strategy from 2017 to a multi-caliber style in 2018, which not only gives Malilong the main series more style, but also loves Malilong series. Players have more choices, and for watch fans who like a slightly larger watch diameter, the fine-tuned size sets off their unique temperament.

The A2000 series movement is derived from the basis of the A1000 movement, and more streamlined corrections have been made to the parts. Therefore, it has reduced the price by nearly half, but at the same time has both the good shock absorption and absolute of the A1000 movement. Accurate and very affordable

Feature 2: Unique ring-shaped automatic disc
Bucherer made mass production of ring-shaped automatic discs as one of the characteristics of its models. It is a unique style created by the brand. In the past, ring-shaped automatic discs were not common on other brand watches, mainly because of the ring-shaped automatic discs. The shock-absorbing effect of the disc is worrying, but in fact, Bucherer has made many improvements on the basis of mass-produced ring-shaped automatic discs. Not only has it developed a Dynamic Shock Absorption dynamic suspension mechanism, but it also uses the elastic lever to offset the vibration force. The unique Central Dual Adjusting System is used to ensure the accuracy of the balance wheel. Therefore, the A2050 derived from the A1000 movement has inherited these strengths. Looking at the five series of Bucherer, the brand-developed A1000 It has been universally used with the A2000 movement, and its accuracy and reliability are quite reliable.

The watch body, hands, and scales are all made of expensive and inspiring rose gold, which shows a strong aristocratic atmosphere when invisible. The material design of the precious metal is also suitable for formal use.

Feature 3: Noble gentleman style in rose gold body
The rose gold material was mostly used in the brand’s flagship series or flagship style. This time, the new style of the Bucherer series in the Mali Long series uses the noble material of rose gold, which clearly shows its intention. The aristocratic atmosphere of rose gold is as small as the dial’s small seconds hand and sword-shaped hour and minute hands, as large as the watch body structure, all exposing an elegant gentleman atmosphere, and the white plain elegant dial and simple scales present the watch. The overall elegant design is a watch that is quite suitable for formal wear.

Watches Do Not Leave, What Watch Does Winter Ski Bring?

  • Uncategorized

It’s already December, and it can be considered to be in the middle of the winter. Some northern cities have also experienced the magnificent sight of thousands of miles of ice and thousands of miles of snow. This year’s Beijing seems to be cold enough and it hasn’t snowed yet. I very much hope to have a heavy snow early. There are fewer outdoor activities in winter, and skiing is definitely one of them. The only experience with the snow that has been sliding for several years is that even if the snow is nourished, the snow feeling is not good after a heavy snowfall.

  The residual heat of the Sochi Winter Olympics at the beginning of the year seems to be burning to the end of the year, driving the domestic skiing this year to become more popular than ever. It doesn’t matter if the motor nerve is smart enough or professional enough, everyone wants to try it out in the ‘snow’. Regardless of whether you choose to slide ‘double row’ or ‘single board’, for beginners, wrestling is unavoidable, and I can say with certainty that you cannot learn without falling.
  On weekdays, as a watchmaker, I basically do n’t leave my watch. I even take a watch with me when I take a bath or sleep. This is a kind of “illness.” I believe that many watch friends and watch fans are like this. .
  Here comes the problem. Mechanical watches, especially high-end mechanical watches from Switzerland (and Germany), have long pursued slimness and elegance, and high-end watches are mostly used as men’s social accessories. Therefore, many watches are waterproof and shockproof. It has never been the preferred indicator for design and manufacturing. Don’t talk about skiing, just wear a ball on your hand or go to the sauna. Water stains left by sweat or snow in the inside of the cover. However, mechanical watches rely on the shock-proof performance of the shock absorber to prevent vibration. There is a certain limit. Beyond the effective range of the shock-proof device, the tip will be damaged first. In addition, other parts in mechanical watches, such as hairsprings, drill holes, and axle tips, will also malfunction or be damaged by severe vibration.
  For us who are accustomed to watching time with a watch, what watch should we bring when skiing or engaging in vigorous activities, let’s talk today. Of course, if you are ‘rich, wayward, and don’t care,’ you can also be happy when I am ‘puckering’. Also welcome all netizens to leave a positive message, provide your experience and story, let us progress together.
What kind of watch is an earthquake-resistant watch?
  The anti-seismic watch originated in 1790. Master Breguet invented and used a large number of simple and effective anti-vibration systems called parachute or pare-chute, which was the pioneer of all modern anti-vibration devices.
  Today, the requirements for a ‘shock-resistant’ watch can be described as very strict, and it must pass various rigorous tests to be named ‘shock-resistant’. A watch that is called ‘shock-resistant’ must be manufactured in Switzerland, France, Germany, and Japan and other countries that have signed the ISO 1413-1984 international standard. The signed documents list the tests required for the earthquake-resistant watch.
  In this shock test, the case of the watch being tested was actually struck by a pendulum. The watch itself must be subjected to two impact tests: one on the dial and one at nine o’clock. After the impact test, the watch will not stop when it is impacted, and the appearance will not cause any physical damage. After the impact test, the error of the watch cannot exceed one day. 60 seconds to pass this test can be called an earthquake-resistant watch.
  There are many types of modern anti-vibration systems, including Incabloc, Kif, Etachoc, Seiko’s Diashock and Citizen’s Parashock system. Incabloc is still the most popular suspension mechanism to date, and it can be seen from top models to general entry models. In addition to the most commonly used Incabloc shockproof, Kif is the shockproof system commonly used in high-end watches. Many brands have also begun to design and use exclusive shock-proof devices, such as Rolex’s Paraflex shock absorbers. Wearing them, you can enjoy golf, skiing, tennis and other sports with peace of mind, so that time and sports are perfectly integrated.

Casio G-SHOCK series
  When it comes to shock-resistant watches, the first recommendation is of course the G-SHOCK series of Casio. The focus of this series can be seen from the name. Before each G-SHOCK leaves the factory, it will undergo tests such as free-fall test, hammer impact test, and vibration test to ensure quality. Until now, the unique anti-vibration structure is constantly innovating. The most important thing is that the price is relatively cheap and not distressed.

Panerai LUMINOR NORTH POLE GMT PAM00252
  Panerai launched the LUMINOR NORTH POLE GMT PAM00252 watch in 2006 to celebrate Mike Horn’s Arctic adventure. It is a reliable watch that can be worn around the Arctic Circle. This watch uses Incabloc shock absorbers. In addition, the 42-hour power reserve is certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (C.O.S.C), and the built-in soft iron is antimagnetic, which is also a symbol of practicality and precision.
  Incabloc (Inga Bell) shockproof, produced by the Swiss company Incabloc sa, is the most common shockproof technology. In simple terms, the key protagonist of the Incabloc device is a circular metal sheet with two sides recessed inward. It encases the jewel bearing, maintains the relative position of the gear axis and the jewel bearing, and the stable operation of the gear train. For impact, the entire set of shock absorbing devices allows the gear axis to be displaced synchronously in a buffering position to prevent the axis from being cracked or deformed by instantaneous force.
  Ball’s engineered hydrocarbon series is an indispensable companion for the ultimate modern explorer. It has excellent anti-shock performance and innovative patent registrations, such as Amortiser anti-vibration device, ‘spring balance’ anti-vibration system, crown protection system, and folding buckle.

Astronomical orbital space officer II model DC3036C-SA-BK
  This engineer’s hydrocarbon-based astronomical orbital space officer II model can be described as the ultimate shock resistance, 7,500Gs impact test means that even after 5.2 meters of free fall can still be harmless. In order to protect the movement of the watch, Ball’s Astronomical Space Chief II watch is equipped with the revolutionary Amortiser system. This system consists of a protective ring surrounding the movement, which can absorb the energy generated when the watch receives an external impact, reduce the shock to the movement, and reduce movement errors. At the same time, the guard ring also has anti-magnetic properties, which gives the movement a magnetic resistance of 4,800 A / m, so that the movement can still run freely in a high magnetic field environment.

Bottom cover aircraft propeller switch
  In addition to the guard ring, the Amortiser system also has a special pendulum lock mechanism. It can be seen that the watch is flipped over, and an airplane propeller-shaped switch is provided on the bottom cover, which can lock or unlock the rotor as needed. A large number of sudden external impacts caused sudden shaking of the swinging rotor. By locking the oscillating weight, the energy generated by the frontal collision can be prevented from entering the movement.

Rolex Explorer II
  Rolex Explorer II, this watch uses Rolex’s exclusive Paraflex shock absorber, which can increase the shock resistance of vulnerable movement components such as the balance shaft by up to 50%. This Rolex also uses Parachrom hairsprings, which are made of a paramagnetic alloy that is not only immune to magnetic fields but also provides shock resistance. And Rolex’s oyster case technology is itself a sturdy endorsement.

24 CALIBRE 36 automatic chronograph from Monaco series
  TAG Heuer Monaco’s 24 CALIBRE 36 automatic chronograph, this watch introduces the concept of a car suspension engine, the movement is suspended in the case, the suspension point is used in aerospace and premium racing special shock-absorbing materials, can Meets very high shock-proof requirements. This watch with advanced shock-absorbing movement protection features a unique tubular design and advanced anti-vibration protection accessories. The ‘efficient dynamic shock absorber’ system is used to prevent bumps and vibrations during exercise. Powered by Calibre 36 movement, the device is clearly visible through the mirror and sapphire crystal case back. The vibrations on the movement are absorbed by multiple support arms, and then directly transmitted to the composite vibration filtering device, which can absorb the vibration energy emitted by the well.

Glashütte Sport Shockproof Tourbillon
  Glashütte has launched sports shock-resistant watches. This sports shock-resistant chronograph has a unique shape. The black dial is dotted with a little bright red. The chronograph abacus is also particularly prominent with bright colors. The strong color contrast is very sporty. The Glashütte watch factory works with the Fraunhofer R & D team in Stuttgart, Germany to develop the ideal material for shock-resistant components. The four cushioning elements made of this elastic material are placed between the movement and the case, absorbing at least 60% of external impact, and because of this shock absorbing system, the movement can be ensured even in the event of a strong impact Stable operation and precise travel time.

Breitling emergency help watch II
 Finally, let me introduce the second generation of Breitling’s emergency help watch. This recognized watch suitable for survival and sports in the wild is not only durable but also incorporates many high-tech. It is the world’s first dual-frequency personal positioning beacon (PLB) watch. It is equipped with a transmitter that meets the special requirements of the Cospas-Sarsat global satellite search and rescue system. It can simultaneously send distress signals and guide positioning and rescue. Breitling’s emergency help watch II is inseparable from the wearer. It is suitable for users in many fields around the world: aviation, sailing, mountain climbing, hiking, hiking, adventure, extreme sports, etc. It is a survival tool in all distress situations. Bring this watch, even if you are abroad to ‘snow’, it is safer.
  Summary: Of course, there are many shock-resistant watches, such as Seiko’s Diashock, Citizen’s Parashock system, Fiyta’s extreme sports series, and so on. I am more inclined to choose the ‘universal watch’ Casio G-SHOCK. The main reason is that it is cheap, does not hurt, and it is indeed relatively ‘prohibited.’ My old Casio has not experienced any problems in various sports. Finally, I remind everyone that skiing has certain dangers, and safety protection measures must be taken. Beginners must not ski ‘wild snow’.
