Omega Speedmaster Mark Ii- News Omega

In 1969, OMEGA transplanted the watch movement masterpiece 861 that was completed with the legendary astronaut Apollo 11 to the new work, and popularized the spirit of the moon landing in the name of ‘Mark II’. Nowadays, with the still familiar appearance characteristics, and the modern movement that has been fully evolved, the watch has once again evoked the lofty aspirations of people on the moon.

Pronouns for space missions
The Speedmaster watch from OMEGA was first introduced in 1957. By the early 1960s, it would be selected as a candidate model for astronaut missions. In 1962, astronaut Wally Schirra wore an OMEGA. The Speedmaster successfully completed the Mercury space mission, which initially proved the solid level of the Speedmaster. At the same time, NASA also began a series of strict tests on candidate watches. In 1965, the Speedmaster overwhelmed other watches. With its high-end performance that successfully passed each test, it has since been designated by NASA as the official space mission watch. However, the key effect of the Speedmaster’s fame may not be gradually fermented until the inter-epochal events of 1969. At the time, the Speedmaster accompanied the legendary astronauts of Apollo 11 to write down the first human success on the moon. Record, thus making the ‘lunar watch’ famous. The importance of Speedmasters for space missions can also be seen from the Snoopy Award awarded by NASA to the United States NASA in the 1970s. During the Apollo project in full swing, the influence of Snoopy’s comics also spread to professional astronauts. In the meantime, they became a topic of life in their spare time. Later, because of the friendly image of Snoopy, they were selected by NASA as the spokesperson for the space mission medal. Successfully helped astronauts survive the explosion of the spacecraft’s body, allowing all members of the ship to return home safely, and won the Snoopy Medal. All these cooperative deeds with space missions make OMEGA’s Speedmaster watch one of the few high-quality models that can be called space watches.

1969 Mark II original
In the super-powerful moon landing watch in 1969, OMEGA also developed the Mark II watch with the same movement 861, adhering to the same moon landing gene, but set a new path in shape design to establish its own style.
Lunar gene transfer
The Speedmaster watch that successfully landed on the moon in 1969 was in the transfer period of the OMEGA movement. Therefore, regardless of the old 321 or subsequent 861 movements, it may be loaded in the watch before and after the moon landing mission, and the brand is on the moon landing. In the same year that the mission was completed, it was based on the 861 movement and derived the new Speedmaster Mark II. Although it is not directly related to the space missions related to the moon landing, it is considered to be capable because of the 861 movement. The Long March Moon’s famous machine (its timing mechanism uses a cam-push-rod type, with eccentric screw trimming and 3Hz vibration frequency and other details are different from the 321 movement and has better time-level performance), which has greatly helped the consumer market to recognize models Excellent quality. Because the functionality of the Mark II is completely the same as that of the moon watch, OMEGA started to distinguish the variability of the two from the shape design. The barrel model (also known as the abalone shell) is a major feature of the Mark II. With the tachymeter scales, orange chronograph hands and hour markers that are bundled on the outer edge of the dial, and the minute and second units are carefully cut into five equal parts and the staggered scale style, etc., the Mark II inheriting the moonwatch gene is glowing Out of its own glory. For collectors who love the origins of OMEGA and space missions, the birth of the watch represents a continuation of a legend and also shows the infinite possibilities of watch design. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Mark II can be sought after by the market after its launch.

In 2014, OMEGA re-engraved this Mark II. The appearance of the watch, as it completely grasps the essence of the original, seems to lead people into the tunnel of time to witness its charm that swept the market, but if you carefully chew the details between the new and old generations , Can still excavate a lot of watch art evolution hidden after the infiltration of modern watchmaking technology, from the inside to the outside to enrich the classic texture of Mark II.
Army of early Mark II watches
In the early development of the Speedmaster Mark II watch, in addition to the introduction of modified versions of different materials, the design of the dial structure of the watch will also be slightly changed, giving the watch a more diverse look.
Evolution track of two generations of Mark II
In 2014, the reproduction of the Speedmaster Mark II, it may not be easy to find the subtle changes between the original and the reproduction, but in fact the biggest difference between the two is the core change. The classic 861 machine carried in the original in 1969 The core has been converted to a 3330 coaxial escapement movement to the new version in 2014. The obvious difference between the new and old movements is that the 3330 movement has more date display and the movement size is larger, so the replica supercar Mark II has more or less detailed changes in appearance.
The first is the size of the case, the diameter of the engraved version has been enlarged to 46.2×42.4mm, making the model look more masculine and magnificent as the name implies; and under the mirror, the aluminum flowmeter scale ring set on the outer ring of the dial Because the Super-LumiNova luminous material is attached, the luminous effect will have a feeling of scattering from the bottom. At the same time, the scale ring also slightly reduces the overall proportion, allowing the dial to naturally occupy the visual focus. The diamond on the front of the orange chronograph second hand The model block is additionally covered with luminous materials to enhance its night vision effect. As for the 3330 movement, the date window is integrated into the 12-hour chronograph dial at 6 o’clock. For this reason, OMEGA also specially sets a 1 o’clock position at the case. Buttons for quick date adjustment. In addition, due to the effect of the size of the movement and the position of the gear train, it can be found that the three-eye chronograph dials of the reprinted Mark II are far apart from each other; finally, the word ‘PROFESSIONAL MARK II’ under the Speedmaster series name at 12 o’clock is also newly changed and the machine Core-related ‘CO-AXIAL CHRONOMETER’ messages.

On the premise of loyalty, OMEGA maintained the Speedmaster Mark II barrel case, which was quite popular at the time. Although the avant-garde look is no longer from today’s perspective, it exudes old watchmaking aesthetics. The indestructible simplicity and beauty, and the orange-coated hands, hour markers, and luminous paint mix and match form, to ensure that the watch has a clear and easy to read time discrimination in the environment of sufficient light or not, The bold color matching attempt contains the brand’s intentions for the wearer.
Innovative evolution of replica movement
The previously mentioned replica Speedmaster Mark II watch has been replaced by the brand’s currently online 3330 movement, which represents the change from manual winding to automatic winding that is more in line with today’s wearing habits, and its timing mechanism has returned to In the past, the column wheel of the 321 movement is expected to be more stable and smooth in the operation of the timekeeping function. The escapement structure of the 3330 movement also includes the Si14 silicon crystal hairspring developed by the current technology to resist the influence of magnetic force. It even helps to improve the accuracy of the watch indirectly.

OMEGA has already released this gray-faced orange needle and another black-faced white needle version on Baselworld. It is reported that the brand will also launch another two different dial and pointer color matching styles, which will carry the Supermaster Mark II to the moon landing gene. The legendary past, with the spirit of maintaining the original appearance as much as possible, reproduces the optimistic watch design philosophy in the early space age.
Colorful but clear dial configuration
The minute and second scales on the outer periphery of the dial are staggered, and the dual hour design with orange coating and luminous coating makes the outside of the dial look colorful and vibrant. In contrast, the three-eye dial of the dial inner ring is It is simpler and brighter. In order to distinguish the travel time and chronograph, OMEGA uses orange tones on the central chronograph seconds hand, the chronograph hand at 3 o’clock, and the chronograph hand at 6 o’clock, juxtaposed with the white hands of the central hour, minute and small seconds Shows clear and clear time discrimination. In addition, the date dial at 6 o’clock uses white text on a black background. It can also highlight the visual level and is not easy for the wearer to ignore.
Environmental readability
The Speedmaster Mark II watch has sufficient time contrast due to the high contrast of the orange hand scale and the dark gray dial, and has its own time reading function. In addition, OMEGA also carefully paints the hour and minute hands and the 12-hour scale. Covered with luminous material, it can continue to be used as a reliable aid for the wearer in the dark environment. It is worth mentioning that the brand is inlaid with a layer of Super-LumiNova coating under the aluminum metal tachometer scale ring on the outer ring of the dial, so that the tachometer scale can show the green night light scattered from the bottom in the dark, and there is a kind of electrons. The strange look and feel of the display.

The fine levels of the barrel case
The Speedmaster Mark II watch that was equipped with the same movement as the Lunar Watch at that time was reconstructed with a barrel case (also known as abalone shell) that was popular at the time in a sculptural development of a sub-series. The texture gives the watch a full domineering personality, and OMEGA even interleaves processing techniques such as chamfering and matte brushing during the case processing to make the appearance of the Speedmaster Mark II even more visible. Although the case only uses a stainless steel single material to make the case, because of the fine processing, the barrel case of the Speedmaster Mark II has created its own characteristics.

Restructuring the movement with the times
The 861 movement of the original Speedmaster Mark II watch is a masterpiece, but the old specifications have gradually become inadequate as the times have evolved. Therefore, in this reprint, OMEGA has replaced the model with the current one. It is still active in The online 3330 movement, under the protection of the case back and the solid bottom cover, shoulders the mission of undertaking the Mark II series. The 3330 caliber has more sophisticated performance than the previous classics in terms of the automatic winding system, 4Hz vibration frequency, the modified column wheel timing mechanism, and the escapement structure with a Si14 silicon crystal spring. Closer to the demands of today’s wearing habits.

2012 First Round Finalist Of The ‘best Jewelry Watch’ At The Geneva Fine Watch Salon Richard Miller Rm052 Skull Tourbillon Watch

Throughout history, the skull has been recorded on many occasions and concepts. The skull marks are sometimes purely visual effects, and sometimes they are related to religious and conscious concepts. Latin Americans see it as a symbol of life; Europeans associate it with death, and the image of the skull reminds Europeans of ephemeral life and golden time. The RM 052 skull tourbillon watch is a visual interpretation of this. The bottom plate and splint of the movement are made of titanium alloy skull shape. Richard Mille blends the skull perfectly into the movement. The skull’s upper and lower jaws hold the ruby ​​of the tourbillon frame, while the back of the skull is designed as the central splint of the movement. Both the hollow base plate and the plywood are rigorously tested to ensure the best strength requirements.
    The movement is connected to the case with 4 tabs, inspired by the crossed bones on the pirate flag. The new case design uses perspective edges to continue the hollowed-out myth. While others are just content to dig into the visual aspects of the skull, Richard Mille has embedded the concept of the skull into the entire timepiece. This timepiece is a pinnacle of freedom and indomitable spirit, and echoes the brand concept: to create extraordinary timepieces, representing the pinnacle of the industry. Limited edition of 21 pieces, including 15 titanium models and 6 ‘only one’ models of red gold gemstone skulls.

Parmigiani Bugatti Type 370 Watch

At present, there are very few manufacturers capable of independently developing and manufacturing vertical gear transmission structures. Due to technical limitations, this technology is only in the hands of a few independent watchmaking brands. Parmigiani launched the Bugatti Type 370 in 2004, which is inspired by the concept car Bugatti introduced in 2005 with a see-through hood, the Veyron 16B. The watch is designed with a vertical axis, including 5 vertically arranged splints, 5 splints supported by several metal brackets, 6 perfectly spliced ​​radian sapphire crystals, and a large barrel on the side of the case can provide continuous watch Power reserve for more than 10 days. Type 370 is currently available in 5 different styles, mainly reflected in the combination of different dials and straps.

 In 2010, Parmigiani created a Bugatti Super Sport watch inspired by a Bugatti Super Sport supercar. The combination of flat and vertical displays is undoubtedly a brand new to the famous Bugatti Type 370. Deduction and promotion.
 When designing and manufacturing a movement, the most important point is to master the internal space. The loose arrangement of the components of the movement will cause the size of the movement to be too large; the dense arrangement of the components will often affect the overall performance. In the past when small watches were popular, watchmakers made the movement’s gear system very compact. This is to meet the needs of small movements to the greatest extent, while also providing conditions for maximizing the balance. This is because, within a certain range, the larger the balance wheel is made, the larger the inertia of its swing, the greater its ability to resist external interference, and the more accurate the time of the watch.
 With regard to the use of movement space, several brands are now developing in a three-dimensional direction. This is not to say that the original arrangement of gears and components is designed to be more three-dimensional and more spatial, but to display the time in a vertical arrangement by completely subverting the traditional arrangement of gears and components. For the traditional arrangement of horizontal gears, the principle of time display is: the power in the mainspring transmits the torque in a horizontal manner through a series of horizontally arranged gears, and is adjusted and converted by the escapement mechanism. The force is regularly transmitted to the level indicating system. The entire process inevitably undergoes a vertical conversion of the force, that is, it is transformed from a horizontal force to a vertical force, and finally it appears in the form of a horizontal force. Although the change of the force direction can be easily achieved through the shaft connected to the gear, due to various factors such as ubiquitous friction, the excess transmission always consumes more or less energy.
 The vertical gear system is a form of transmission structure that has been popular in recent years. The designer transformed the horizontally-arranged gear system in the traditional clock structure into a form of vertically-arranged occlusion, and the display system also began to get rid of the traditional horizontal motion display mode and develop in a diversified direction. What are the characteristics of arranging the gear system in the movement vertically? First of all, setting up large and small gears can greatly save the planar area occupied by the mechanical structure of the watch and make the watch look ‘smaller’. However, corresponding to this, the thickness of the watch will increase a lot. Secondly, due to the vertically arranged gear system, the gear shafts at each end of each gear are respectively attached to the small splint perpendicular to the main splint. Unlike the horizontally arranged gear system, all gears are fixed on the same Stable main plate, so if the same gear as the horizontal gear system is also used, it will inevitably cause unstable operation. In order to achieve the ideal stability, the designer made the gear very thick, which increased the stability of the gear engagement and operation. However, due to the increased thickness of the gear itself, the burden on the power system is further increased.
