Jaeger-LeCoultre is the inventor of the spherical tourbillon. When the competition of tourbillon watches of various brands is becoming fiercer and the trend of tourbillon watches begins to show signs of decline, represented by the Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon The three-dimensional multi-dimensional tourbillon is emerging suddenly, becoming a powerful successor of the traditional tourbillon king status, and pushing the technical level and artistic value of the tourbillon to a new peak.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee
With the revival of mechanical watches in the 1990s, the tourbillon once again became a gem in the crown of mechanical watches. Since then, many brands have replicated this ancient rotary escapement speed regulation mechanism invented 200 years ago through modern watchmaking technology. Therefore, the appearance of this Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee superb traditional ball tourbillon 3 commemorative watch is completely unexpected, and I am not afraid to fall from the sky, and the amount of this surprise can be really light. Think about it, 5 years have passed since the launch of the last Jaeger-LeCoultre tourbillon. In this era when the product is updated faster than the book, the quality of grinding a sword for several years is rare. Less, and our old, belated friend is waiting for us to clean the wind for him.
The tourbillon was originally a product of the pocket watch era. Pocket watches placed in the pockets of clothing sometimes remained in the same posture for a long time without being changed. As a result, the extremely lightweight hairspring would be affected by the gravity of the earth and deformed. Although it is difficult to detect the slight change in shape, the change in the spring radius of the hairspring will adversely affect the running time of the pocket watch. The tourbillon born to solve this problem puts the balance and hairspring in a non-stop rotating frame, so the force position of the hairspring is constantly changing. This prevents the hairspring from deforming and improves the accuracy of the pocket watch. . After entering the era of watches, although the tourbillon still rotates on the dial (some tourbillons are located on the back of the case), and the workmanship is more fine and the appearance is more beautiful, but the tourbillon is unable to improve the accuracy of the watch. This is because when people walk and run, the watch with the arm swinging is no longer in a fixed position as honestly as a pocket watch. Not only can the traditional tourbillon not contribute greatly to the accuracy of the time as before, but the heavy frame driven by the second wheel will consume too much power. As some points point out, the tourbillon’s ornamental value has far exceeded practical value.
Jaeger-LeCoultre was the inventor of the spherical tourbillon. In 2004, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the first ball-shaped tourbillon watch. This world-famous complex rotating device caused a sensation in the industry once it was launched, because any tourbillon before this time had both visual effects and functionality. No one can match it. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ball-shaped tourbillon wraps the watch’s escapement speed-regulating mechanism in two frames, and the double frames run along different axes, respectively. The precise rotating mechanism is like an armillary instrument for measuring celestial bodies, and can be described as the most ornamental tourbillon. More importantly, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon greatly improves the accuracy of the watch’s travel time, and the complex rotation trajectory makes the watch not affected by gravity at any position. After the accuracy test of the time electronic tester, we found that the accuracy of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon is even higher than that of any complex tourbillon in the industry. It is also compared with the Duomtre Sphrotourbillon double-wing three-dimensional tourbillon watch launched by Jaeger-LeCoultre last year. It is better than that, because the travel path of the ball tourbillon is more complicated and changeable. Presumably, when Jaeger-LeCoultre invented the ball tourbillon, it was precisely this three-dimensional multi-dimensional design that saved the future of the tourbillon. The upsurge of tourbillon is fading. The traditional tourbillon should belong to the past, and the three-dimensional multi-dimensional tourbillon represented by Jaeger-LeCoultre-type tourbillon belongs to the future.
Evolution lies in the subtle
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee is a third-generation spherical tourbillon watch. In addition to the first ball tourbillon launched in 2004, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2 ball tourbillon watch 2 in the Reverso series in 2008. Although these three ball tourbillons have similar appearances, each generation has to go further than its predecessors. By the time of the Jaeger-LeCoultre MasterGrande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee superb traditional tourbillon 3 commemorative watch, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s ball-shaped tourbillon already has a very high level of technology, and can even be said to be close to perfection. From the understanding of flywheel styles, including independent watch brands, it is difficult for any tourbillon to be as sophisticated as a Jaeger-LeCoultre tourbillon. While many brands are still busy copying the heritage of more than a century ago, Jaeger-LeCoultre has pushed the multi-dimensional tourbillon to a new height, and has taken the lead in the industry with the absolute advantage of the third-generation ball tourbillon.
In order to improve the visual effect of the tourbillon and increase the reflective properties of the material, Jaeger-LeCoultre has plated a special reflective material on the aluminum frame to allow light to easily enter the interior of the tourbillon, thereby achieving a dazzling effect.
In addition, another evolution of this ball tourbillon is the special hairspring. Clocksprings in watches and clocks are generally divided into three types: flat hairsprings, end-winding hairsprings, and columnar hairsprings. These three hairsprings have improved performance from left to right. This is because the more three-dimensional shape the better the isochronism, the more stable the hairspring bouncing, and the higher the travel accuracy. It can be seen that the column hairspring can provide the most accurate time-keeping accuracy for clocks and watches, but because of its large appearance, the column hairspring is generally only used for special-purpose clocks such as vintage ship clocks. Like today’s high-end watches, a hairspring is usually wound on the end. This hairspring will be lifted up at the end to change the hairspring curve to improve the accuracy of the watch. Although the end-winding hairspring is not as good as a column hairspring, it is much stronger than a flat hairspring, so it can be regarded as a compromise. One of the advantages of the spherical tourbillon over the traditional tourbillon is the three-dimensional frame space, so it is suitable for the use of a cylindrical hairspring. It is also worth mentioning that the ball-shaped hairspring made of blue-gold material and the 14K gold balance wheel with blue processing have outstanding visual effects. In the complicated running trajectory of the ball-shaped tourbillon, the fantasy blue is left Figure.
More complex than complex
In addition to the unprecedented ball tourbillon, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master GrandeTradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee superb traditional tourbillon 3 series commemorative watch also has a complex technical instant digital display with high technical difficulty. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3 Jubilee is a commemorative watch with a 9-point chronograph dial and a digital display window. Whenever the hand of the timer dial moves for one minute, the digital display window next to it jumps a number backward. In this way, the display of the chronograph time will be very intuitive, instead of the traditional chronograph, it takes some effort to see what number is on the chronograph dial. Prior to this, very few brands have also introduced instantaneous digital chronographs. Instantaneous digital displays are a cumbersome and complicated mechanical structure. In order to make the numbers jump quickly and accurately, they must not be dragged into the water. The timing structure must involve a positioner. , Centrifugal brakes and other extra devices that will never appear on a general chronograph.
In this era, there are too many commemorative models and commemorative activities. I wish that any large or small event could be commemorated on the table. And these little things can’t be compared with the commemorative value of this watch, because this watch commemorates the original founder of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Antoine LeCoultre, and the hour and minute hands are printed on the dial The word 1833 symbolized the beginning of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s history, and that year Antoine LeCoultre established his own watchmaking workshop in Ru Valley. Antoine LeCoultre occupies an important position both in the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s brand and in the history of watch development. The Millionometre he invented in 1844 was the first instrument to measure up to a thousandth of a millimeter. With the help of the micrometer, the processing accuracy of clock parts has been greatly improved. As a result, more complex functions have become possible on pocket watches, which has made a huge contribution to the development of clocks. Today, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3Jubilee superb traditional spherical tourbillon 3 commemorative watch is a sophisticated and sophisticated watch with a large complex function to commemorate the pioneer, which reflects that Jaeger-LeCoultre’s horological technology is as eager as others.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Classic Ball Tourbillon 3 Master Series commemorative watch, which combines the two complex functions of a spherical tourbillon and instant digital timekeeping, is one of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most important styles, and it can be counted as just 75. The quantity is bound to be swept away. If you want to get started, you must do it quickly.
