Animal Party Tasting Beijing Tourbillon Enamel Three Questions Watch

If the rare thing is expensive, then this watch introduced to you today will definitely be included in the ranks of rare treasures. In the eyes of many watch fans, it seems that only Swiss brands can make exquisite and sophisticated watches, but in fact our own brands can do it. For example, the following animal PARTY Chinese Tourbillon Enamel Minute Repeater Gold Watch from Beijing.

 This Chinese tourbillon enamel three-question gold diamond watch named ‘Animal Party’ has only one in the world. It can be said that this is a true watch alone. Of course, no matter from the material or the process, this one Watches are expensive.

 This animal PARTY watch uses a 43mm 18K rose gold case. The fine grinding process is undoubted from the round surface of the case. I personally think that the most attractive part of this precious metal watch is gold. The soft light refracted by the case is very personal.

 If the high-end luxury watch seems to have lost half of its light without diamonds, the 18K rose gold case of this Beijing watch is set with 195 natural diamonds, using a two-round regular setting, although from the picture It looks like the diamond’s light is not very eye-catching, but the actual effect is very luxurious.

 The thickness of this watch is 15.4 millimeters. The tourbillon and the minute-complex functions will make the watch look a little too thin, but this will not hinder its comfort on the wrist. At the same time, the smooth radian of the lugs connects the dial and the strap like clouds, and the rose gold crown has become the two points of the entire watch.

 Some people may wonder why this watch is called the name of animal PARTY, but it is often clear after seeing the dial. The overall use of green as the basic color, of course, this is also the color of nature, the color of life. The exquisite gilt silk enamel technology on the silver blank’s surface outlines a vivid forest state for the wearer.

 In the previous article, you should also understand that filigree enamel is a very sophisticated watchmaker’s technology, and often a little mistake will be repeated. Looking closely at the dial of this watch, there are lakes, hills and lush trees, and animals of various colors are interspersed in it. A vibrant natural scene will definitely bring a little comfort to people living in the city.

 The hands of this watch are also made of 18K rose gold, which once again confirms the extraordinary luxury of this watch while forming unity with the case.

 Turn on the minute repeater function of this watch, and the mechanism is on the dial on the left side of the watch. Push the dial on the left side of the watch upwards to turn on the timekeeping, timekeeping and minute functions of the watch. Note that the dial should be pushed all the way down before releasing. I believe that between the sound of the smart is the best reward for the wearer.

 The watch is designed with sapphire crystal back, showing the movement with extraordinary beauty. The watch is equipped with a MRB-1 manual winding movement, equipped with a free spring spring, and provides a 63-hour power reserve. When winding the winder, turn the winder handle clockwise to tighten the winder and add energy to the watch. It is best to take off the watch when it is adjusted to avoid the winding handle being pushed to one side.

 The watch uses a crocodile leather strap and 18K rose gold buckle. It is believed that only this combination can bring out the luxury of this watch.

Summary: The time adjustment of this watch is to pull out the winding handle and then turn the winding handle clockwise to adjust the time. In order to avoid the accurate report of minutes after the backlash of gears accumulate, please be sure to adjust the hour and minute hands clockwise (positive). After adjusting the time, push the winding handle back to its original position. In fact, Beijing Watch’s production of such sophisticated high-end watches has indeed added a little care to domestic watch lovers. Although we are not the same as Swiss watches, it is not difficult to see from the level of this watch The potential is still very large.

Piaget Altiplano38mm 900d The World’s Thinnest Fine Jewelry Watch

The soul of timepieces is the ultimate goal of Piaget’s fine watchmaking. The brand combines the world-renowned ultra-thin movement technology with extraordinary jewellery craftsmanship, breaking the ultra-thin limit again, and turning dreams into shining reality.

The unique and attractive design of this watch is suitable for men and women. It is a sublimation of Piaget’s perfect craftsmanship.

Pushing the limits of slimness
   In 2014, to celebrate the 140th anniversary of Piaget, the brand released a revolutionary watch: the Altiplano 38mm 900P. This elegant and extraordinary watch set a new ultra-thin record. In addition to the 3.65 mm ultra-thin body, the most amazing thing is its bold design-the case is also the main plate of the movement, the movement Integrated with the case, 145 mechanical parts are directly mounted on the bottom case. The Altiplano 38mm 900P’s ultra-thin record-breaking integrated design truly shows the strength of the brand’s two own watchmaking workshops: the watchmaking workshop in La Côte aux Fées specializes in making movements, while the The watchmaking workshop is specialized in producing watch cases. The case, dial and sapphire crystal case back must be perfectly joined to protect the precious movement, and this challenge took three full years to complete. By 2016, the fine jewelry model of this ultra-thin classic watch was finally born.

Diamond delicate makeup movement
   The spirit of the brand ‘Always do better than required’ drives Piaget to continue to meet challenges and strive for excellence. For Piaget, the movement has always been an important part of watch design. In the La Côte-aux-Fées and Plan-les-Ouates workshops, more than 40 professionals from different fields have shown their talents for the movement design. The use of extraordinary jewellery technology on watches is the best expression of the brand’s watchmaking arts. Only the most skilled jewellery craftsmen can complete the work of decorating jewelry in the movement. The movements using this technology include: 900D Movement; rose gold 838D hand-winding small second hand skeletonized movement; white gold 1200D self-winding skeleton movement set with 259 round brilliant-cut diamonds, it is the thinnest of its kind; inlaid 71 The 1270D self-winding skeletonized movement with two baguette-cut diamonds and 561 round brilliant-cut diamonds are the thinnest in the world.

Piaget jewellery master, beauty of light art
   Ultra-thin watchmaking is Piaget’s brand gene, and the art of jewelry setting also represents Piaget’s historical heritage. Jewelry masters are true light and shadow artists. Their unique vision and precise taste can make jewelry show amazing technical characteristics. In the field of ultra-thin watchmaking, limited by the slim contours and the ultra-thin case, the design of the watch allows only very small tolerances, and at the same time there is only very limited space for gem setting. The Altiplano 38mm 900D watch is set with 5.77 carats of diamonds, setting the record for the world’s thinnest fine jewelry watch with a thickness of 5.6 mm. The watch is made of 304 diamonds with different cutting techniques-the frame and the bezel are set with rectangular cut diamonds, and the lugs and the center of the case are set with round brilliant-cut diamonds-from Piaget’s exquisite craftsmanship. . In addition, in order to further highlight the unique performance of the movement, the jewellery master embeds gems in the main splint by snowflake inlay. This exquisite technique randomly arranges diamonds of different sizes, close to each other, and covers the precious metal material below, creating a scene of sunlight blooming and jumping in the snow. In addition to the tedious craftsmanship and the minimum construction period of four days, the gem selection stage also requires extremely high standards. To further demonstrate the brand’s ultimate pursuit of perfect appearance, the Altiplano 38mm 900D bridge screws and gears are set with gems. At the same time, the sturdy case back and folding buckle are also decorated with beautiful diamonds.
Ultra-thin legend
   Altiplano is a milestone in Piaget ultra-thin watches. Altiplano (Spanish) is a plateau in central South America. It is located in the middle of the Andes, with an average altitude of 3650 meters. It is one of the highest human settlements in the world. Altiplano 38mm 900P pays tribute to the Altiplano plateau with its thickness of 3.65 mm. At the same time, the 900P is to commemorate Piaget’s first ultra-thin hand-wound movement in 1957, the 9P movement. The 9P movement is only 2 mm thick, which successfully established Piaget’s position in the ultra-thin watchmaking field. In 1960, Piaget set a new record with the 12P movement. The thickness of this movement was only 2.3 mm, which became the world’s thinnest automatic winding movement at that time. Since then, the brand has successively refreshed many ultra-thin manual and automatic winding movements. Records, some are more equipped with complex functions. In fact, out of the brand’s 35 self-developed and manufactured movements, as many as 23 are ultra-thin movements, of which 12 have rewritten the record of ultra-thin movements in the past few years, such as the world’s most thin manual The 600T chain tourbillon movement and the 1209P movement with small seconds automatic winding are also the thinnest of its kind. The 430P caliber, born in 1998, replaced the 9P caliber and joined the brand’s ultra-thin caliber movement. The name of Altiplano was thus opened.
