In close cooperation with physicists, Jaeger-LeCoultre engineers use new alloys and silicon parts to greatly reduce the adverse effects of magnetic fields on clockwork. The movement of Extreme LAB 2 is placed in a case made of TiVan 15 alloy. , The bezel is made of super scratch-resistant high-tech ceramics. Thanks to the new alloy TiVan 15, this frame structure is sturdy and lightweight. It consists of two metals, titanium and vanadium. Its scratch resistance is 15% higher than traditional titanium alloys.

At the same time, the image of Raymond Weil’s original designer watches has gradually developed into a complete brand of its own. The number of watch styles has been greatly reduced and replaced by a vivid design series. With its superb Swiss watchmaking technology and knowledge, and always keeping abreast of the development of new technology, Raymond Weil adheres to product innovation, advocating outstanding watchmaking technology and quality, so it is renowned for its watchmaking and tasteful customers Favorite.

In addition, Raymond Weil has always maintained the characteristics of its family business, which is an important advantage in the watchmaking industry today.
For the past 30 years, Raymond Weil has been constantly evolving with the harmonious coexistence of excellence and innovation. Each design is a perfect combination of enthusiasm and precision, but also the result of the long-term hard development of the collection of people’s technical experience and surging creativity.
Since its inception, Raymond Weil has been focusing on design to reflect the brand’s core values: warmth, sensuality, freehandness and harmony. Raymond Weil designers successfully interpret these values with the materials they choose, the beautiful lines, the pursuit of balance and unity, and the attention to detail. Indeed, it is the pure weight that gives the Raymond Weil watch its distinctive personality.
However, Raymond Weil’s design is not limited to its appearance. Raymond Weiss watches are sentimental objects: objects that come into direct contact with the skin. As a result, Raymond Weil’s designers focus on watch wear, considering how it is worn on the wrist and whether the wearer feels comfortable.
This approach is in line with the brand’s concept of ‘function first, shape supplement’. A watch is always based on the movement, which determines the size, thickness and volume of the watch. In view of this, the design has become a visual expression of the interior and perfect connotation of the watch, giving the watch a unique and distinctive personality.
By the same token, design is not an independent individual. From the initial pencil sketch to the finished technical specifications, the design incorporates a series of interrelated steps. Raymond Weil’s designers and technicians work hand in hand, relying on their enthusiasm and curiosity for watches, from time to time come up with new ideas, so that their performance continues to improve.

Keeping abreast of technological advances, the Geneva-based family company has established the most modern and advanced research and development centre in the Swiss watchmaking industry.
In this department, designers and engineers work closely together from the first sketch, sample trials, technical planning, to every stage of the production process.
How did the watch come into being under their efforts? When receiving the most important data from the management and marketing department, the design and production plan of the new watch began.
Raymond Weil uses a computer-aided 3D design system to introduce new product ideas and create digital models based on a marketing briefing. At the beginning, the engineer first draws the basic geometric shape, and then creates a virtual entity with three-dimensional processing. The computer’s function at this stage is like the extension of the designer’s hand, so that the design can meet the required technical specifications. Equipped with an interpretation device with a high degree of truth, computer software can conduct in-depth research on materials and consider how its physical characteristics affect the appearance and weight of the watch.
At each stage in the development of a new model, a technical plan that includes the most precise details can be developed, and the relevant production processes can be precisely determined. The research and development department is also equipped with a wax mold machine for casting three-dimensional samples. According to the technical specifications of the product, a clear three-dimensional sample with an accuracy of 0.01 mm is cast, allowing engineers to specifically review and finalize the design.
The establishment of this department allows Raymond Weil to focus more precisely on the details of watchmaking.

The practical value of antimagnetic watches must be mentioned. It is said that the son of the Hong Kong chief executive, Tsang Yam-kuen, often went in or out of the operating room, and what watch he wore every day became faster or slower for half an hour, and finally he was relieved to buy MILGAUSS.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
Of the many models of Audemars Piguet, the Royal Oak with octagonal surface is probably the most attractive model. Its name is a legend: The Royal Oak was originally a flagship of the Royal Navy launched in 1830. Audemars Piguet’s designers found inspiration from this ship named Royal Oak. The octagonal porthole on the battleship is the origin of the unique octagonal surface of Audemars Piguet, because the porthole of the ship symbolizes strength and waterproofness. The reason why the oak tree has such a respectable position in Britain is that during the Puritan Revolution in the 15th century, King Charles II of the United Kingdom once saved his life by hiding in an oak tree while evading the enemy, so Charles II Then chose the oak tree as the emblem of the royal protector.
Since then, the oak tree has enjoyed the most special respect in the British royal family.
The Royal Oak Watch is actually a famous work created by Gerald Genta, known as the ‘Clock Picasso’, for Audemars Piguet. The unique octagonal case, coupled with the revolutionary design of its exposed screws, breaks the decades-old unwritten rule that the watch industry has followed: all operating parts must be hidden. The Royal Oak has also influenced the design style of watches and clocks around the world, becoming an immortal treasure of watchmaking, and it is still one of the representative works of Audemars Piguet.

[Special Report from Watch House Basel] On April 25, 2013, the annual watch industry event Basel International Watch Fair kicked off. The watch house team went to Switzerland. Bring the report of the exhibition to everyone at the front.
In 2012, Tudor will continue its unique style, introducing two watches that combine elegance and performance. To pay tribute to the brand’s long history, HERITAGE Black Bay reinterprets watchmaking standards that were influential in the history of diving watches in the 1950s. In addition, Pelagos, which combines superb craftsmanship, is waterproof to a depth of 500 meters. The sporty design and reliable performance of this watch will meet the needs of marine and diving enthusiasts. With these two timepieces designed for the ocean, not only the traditional craftsmanship of Tudor for over 60 years, but also the creative ingenuity of drawing inspiration from history and creating fashionable designs.
The new Tudor Heritage Black Bay seen in the picture, as if it had been a long-disappearing treasure again. The design inspiration of this series is inspired by the glorious history of the brand, and a new interpretation of the most classic models among them, once again perfectly interpreting the spirit of the Tudor replica. Heritage Black Bay was inspired by a diver’s watch introduced in 1954. The design incorporates modern and popular elements. From the introduction of this watch to the 1980s, Tudor continued to innovate and improve this style. Its arched dial is exquisitely retro, with rare burgundy bezels and ‘snowflake’ hands, which make this classic watch even more remarkable in many dive watches. At the same time, this watch is also equipped with three different straps for everyone to choose from, which can be described as very intimate.
In addition to the differences in straps, I believe that many people will be attracted by the bright red bezel when they first see the watch. A classic continuation, the 41mm stainless steel case and unidirectional rotating outer ring are tailored for divers. The second is the use of snowflake pointers, which seems to have brought us back 50 years ago. The watch is water-resistant to 200 meters.
Summary: At present, it is understood that the price of this watch is around 25,000. As a memory of classics, this watch has still been loved by many people. I have also found that many people have bought this watch, which is still good in terms of appearance, and it is still a very good purchase option in this price range.
The pictures and information collected by the reporting team in front of the Watch House will be uploaded to the special topics in Basel, so stay tuned.

When it comes to antique watches, tiny details are very important. In fact, they are basically everything. When evaluating the dial’s originality, the details become a double-edged sword, as any replacement or modification of the dial will have a great impact on the overall value of the watch. This explains the problems of watches made from the 1970s with the strange round small marks on the sides of the dials ‘Swiss’ or ‘Swiss Made’. These small marks are actually lowercase Greek letters Sigma (Sigma, Sigma), so dials carrying this mark are also appropriately called ‘Sigma Dials’. The problem is that most of the information we usually see about sigma dials is wrong and it’s easy to see. So I decided to dig deeper and try to figure out the exact time and reasons behind the sigma dial. The story is more interesting than I expected.
An ad from APRIOR highlights that apart from Swiss watches being precise and reliable, gold parts are also valuable
The first rumor about sigma dials: these small letters are mandatory markings, which were suddenly added by watchmaking brands in the early 1970s. This statement is of course impractical, because Sigma is an independent choice of watchmaking brands and a sign of identification. More specifically, it is the exclusive logo of several brands that join the promotion of the gold watch industry association APRIOR (l’Association pour la Promotion Industrielle de l’Or), which explains why not all brands have Sigma dials Watch. The association was led by the Swiss Watch Industry Federation and was established in 1973 with the clear purpose of promoting practical gold parts for watches and increasing the intrinsic value of mechanical watches.
APRIOR’s statement clearly describes the purpose of the sigma dial
I believe you must remember the situation facing the Swiss watch industry at that time: the global economy was sad and dismal, and under the impact of the quartz wave, mechanical technology was about to fall behind. Want to emphasize the deep value of old mechanical watches, is there any better way than mentioning parts with intrinsic value? The logic here may sound a bit unclear at first glance, but we have to take into account that the price of gold soared in the 1970s, and the price of gold tripled between 1970 and 1974. The sigma symbol proves that the hands and hour markers of the watch are made of solid gold. APRIOR emphasized in its marketing campaign: ‘Buying a watch with the Sigma logo is a reliable investment.’
A Rolex Daytona Ref.6263 produced in 1974 with two lowercase sigma on the sides of ‘Swiss’
In the end, even if it’s not entirely convincing, at least the Sigma initiative sounds reasonable. However, the sigma initiative may not be as innovative as APRIOR claims, because it is very similar to the ‘OM’ logo used by Omega in the mid 1950s (and you can see the Apollo XI Ref.BA, the speedmaster launched by Omega at the same time as APRIOR was founded 145.022-69 watch). Omega did choose to use ‘OM’ to mark the dial made of pure gold. This mark does not involve hands and time stamps, but it is very close to Sigma in concept. Of course, we may never find out that the ‘OM’ mark affects APRIOR. evidence of.

Although APRIOR was officially established in 1973 (its charter was drafted in 1972), the Sigma symbol was registered as a trademark as early as August 1971. Many sources set the date of the first sigma dial in 1973. If we use the watch (usually the best source of evidence) as evidence, we can prove that the origin of 1973 is completely wrong. You can find a large number of Rolex watches from the 1970 series with the serial number and the Sigma logo. This means that the appearance of sigma dials not only predates the establishment of APRIOR in 1973, but also before the sigma mark is registered. .
Rolex used Sigma dials before 1973, as evidenced by this 1972 Rolex Datejust Ref.1603 dial watch
If we review the trademark again, we will find that it has been continuously updated until 2003, and APRIOR officially launched the stage of history four years later (2007). As far as Rolex is concerned, the brand stopped using Sigma dials in the late 1970s, a little later than what is commonly thought of in 1975. The beauty here is that there are a large number of Rolex antique watches on the market, allowing us to easily trace the age of Sigma dials. Unfortunately, Rolex alone cannot fully understand the secrets of the sigma dial. Historically, many other brands have joined APRIOR (five to nine members at any given time), and manufacturers that supply movements such as Stern and Singer also produce sigma dials. Apart from Rolex, the most famous brands among them are Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and IWC.

Just a little observation is enough to clearly understand the sigma dials used by many famous dials produced in the 1970s, such as Patek Philippe Nautilus and Ellipse d’ Or, Vacheron Constantin 222 (square), and IWC engineers. Interestingly, like Rolex watches, these models are not all equipped with a solid gold case; in many cases, a stainless steel watch can also be decorated with the Sigma symbol, just because it is equipped with solid gold hands and hour markers.
Patek Philippe Ref. 3587 (with Beta 21 movement) is also often equipped with a sigma dial
Through these brands, we can dig deeper into the timeline of sigma dials, because whether it is Patek Philippe Nautilus or Vacheron Constantin, the sigma dials are still applied until the 1990s. This key piece of information also allows us to clarify another rumor about sigma dials, which are by no means replacement dials, but genuine, as long as these watches meet the timeline of sigma dials for specific brand series. In principle, I would like to give a clear deadline for applying sigma dials, but everything is still to be determined. All I can find is the last sigma dial, which is equipped in the watch produced in 2000, but note that the dial is manufactured in batches. The production of the watch in 2000 does not mean that the dial is also the same, the latter may be produced earlier.
This 1997 Vacheron Constantin watch is still equipped with a sigma dial
Despite the uncertainty of the deadline, I firmly believe that knowing the ins and outs of the sigma dial and knowing where to see (and where not to see) has practical significance. For example, watches produced in the 1960s with Sigma dials are certainly not the original configuration. Looking back at the history of sigma dials, we must praise APRIOR’s initiative, but at the same time we must be honest with the true story of sigma dials: it has never been a comprehensive measure envisaged for the entire watchmaking industry, nor has it helped prevent the 1970s Quartz crisis.
The second page of the APRIOR statement also mentions the use of sigma symbols for cases, bracelets and even labels; the investigation is certainly not over
This enduring issue is related to the most basic assumption that end customers really value knowing whether some parts of their watches are made of precious metals. In my opinion, the above assumption seems flawed, because this type of knowledge does not carry the emotional factors expected by APRIOR, and a large part of customers may not even know the existence of the sigma symbol. After all, no one knows the purpose of selling a watch when the scrap is sold after smelting; What is the net weight of pure gold with three hands and twelve hour markers?
This explains two things: why sigma dials have not left a lot of lasting marks in the industry, and why focusing on the attractiveness of craftsmanship is a wise choice for the watchmaking industry to seek long-term development. There is another deeper implication here, that the world of antique watches is complex, and for any given subject, there are many versions of the story, including many inferior information. All in all, it’s worth doing a little extra research.

Yang Yan said: ‘In fact, I was not familiar with this brand before. I only asked my friends by coincidence that I knew that the antique watch I used to like was the Bohr watch. After careful inquiry, I found that this brand is very representative in the history of American watches. At that time, I really didn’t know Taishanyu ‘
(Shanghai, China-July 2018) Recently, the new product launch ceremony of Rado, a pioneering watchmaking brand and material master, focuses on ‘the element of time’ to deepen the past, the present and the future. Reflect and draw inspiration from materials and nature, deconstruct the design ideas and inspiration of new products, and construct a more concise but rich slow lifestyle. Contemporary ink artist A Hai not only came to release the grand ceremony, but also talked about his unique insights on innovation and pioneering spirit with the theme video of ‘Elements of Time’.
‘My painting is attributeless. I hope to break the single space model and reapply the classic elements of Chinese ancient tradition.’ A Hai’s character is as free and easy as his creative style. The innovative use of ink painting materials makes A Hai It has become a unique pioneer in the domestic ink painting industry. He believes that creation is breaking the norm, and one of the major challenges in creating is to make the work simple. It is very difficult to achieve simplicity in painting. The simpler things are often the harder. The pure and simple style of creation is the key to maintaining the permanent charm of the work. Innovation is an important driving force for the classics.
A Hai went on to share that the two most important factors of contemporary art are ‘experimental’ and ‘creative’. Through simple painting style and exploration of materials, he creates his own independent personality. The process of artistic creation has to undergo three processes: artistic experience, artistic conception and artistic communication. Each process requires precipitation and tempering over time. Time gives creation a unique vitality and thickness, and it is also the best compliment to the process of continuous training. The design language that RADO wants to express is simple and memorable, and it can stand the time.
A Hai’s creation also pursues this unique style and language. Innovative fusion is the driving force for design and artistic creation. No design can abandon the influence of classic heritage, but innovation is an important driving force for the classics to last.
In the video, the Rado True Radar series of hollow automatic mechanical watches worn by Ahai is a new masterpiece launched by the brand this year. This watch combines the characteristics of the RADO brand: the exquisitely decorated Swiss automatic mechanical movement, the one-piece case, the high-tech ceramic case and bracelet, and the rich color choice, which highlights the brand’s excellence in materials and design. Control is a classic example of the True series.
