   Waves of colorful dots resemble colorful hazy mosaic art. Whether you go to an art exhibition or an art gallery, wearing them can keep your artistic imagination up to date with the masters.

Geometric Fantasia: Go straight, stand alone

They can occupy the top three fashion elements in three to five. Sometimes abstract and unrestrained, sometimes returning to rationality, pure lines are full of maverick artistic atmosphere.

Bang Fruit Linen Watch

   The Big Bang Fruit Linen watch’s case and dial are hand-woven by craftsmen using linen fibers. The unique weaving technique creates a unidirectional weft of pure natural fiber, which is then dyed and matched with a light-transmitting composite material. This process provides an innovative material that replaces carbon fiber. The material has the same mechanical strength, but is lighter and can be infinitely graded. Regarding the strap, Hublot chose to sew pure natural linen fiber into the rubber. It is made of collected linen and woven into threads, then hand-woven with the best fibers.

A Brief History Of Tiffany’s Time 1837-2015

Tiffany’s history as an outstanding watchmaker can be traced back to the beginning of the company. From New York in 1837, it has experienced a glorious innovation process, and today the new Tiffany CT60 watch series is launched-this new series Named after the brand’s founder, ‘New York Minuteman’ Charles Tiffany (CT is the initials of Charles Tiffany). In 1853, Mr. Tiffany erected a 9-foot (2.74-meter) Atlas Hercules giant clock above Broadway 550, defining the essence of time in New York. For more than a century, generations of founders in New York have used this public clock to calibrate their personal time and regard it as a symbol of New York’s energy and creativity. Today, the clock stands above the entrance of the world-famous Tiffany Fifth Avenue flagship store, and its content and essence have never changed.

Process and innovation
 Tiffany has been selling timepieces since 1847. Seven years later, Mr. Tiffany signed a partnership agreement with Patek Philippe, the two founders of Patek Philippe, and became Patek Philippe’s first retail agent in the United States. This glorious tradition continues to this day. In 1874, Tiffany built an industry-leading four-story watch factory in Cornavin Square in Geneva. Here, Tiffany successively manufactures a large number of different styles of timepieces to meet the growing customer demand, including gold pocket watches, the advanced movement of the device can realize the hour and the hour, the delicate brooch watch with diamonds; other timepiece works Or decorated with country scenery paintings made of enamel, or with gold carved crowns with mythical figures and flower patterns, and finely crafted.
 Tiffany also introduced many important achievements in watchmaking innovation. ‘Tiffany Timer’ was introduced in 1868. It is the first chronograph stopwatch in the United States, used for engineering and technology purposes and for timing sports events. With pioneering innovations in the field of movements and hand-sets, Tiffany has also obtained a number of technical patents. Tiffany’s renowned gemologist George Kunz also applied for a patent on the green luminous coating on the hour markers and hands.
 In the 1880s, Mr. Tiffany has become a world-renowned jeweller and watchmaker, enjoying a high reputation for extraordinary craftsmanship and meticulous customer service. One of the customer services is the routine adjustment of the time for more than 400 home clocks owned by its customers each week after standard time was introduced in 1883.
Leading the World
 The Tiffany Antiques Collection showcases a large number of Tiffany classic timepieces that have won gold awards at world expositions over the past two centuries. Tiffany’s jewellery watch won the grand prize at the Philadelphia World’s Fair in 1876. At the Paris World Expo in 1889, many works of Tiffany were awarded. Among them, a brooch watch designed by the then chief designer Paulding Farnham, depicting the American wild rose pattern with diamonds and enamel. Tiffany’s watch box and astronomical clock also shined at the Chicago Expo in 1893.
 At the New York World Expo in 1939, Tiffany exhibited a series of gorgeous diamond and platinum cocktail watches that made the world amazing, as well as a variety of cocktail-style bold timepieces, such as geometric lines, gold-plated trapezoidal wrists dotted with rubies table. A women’s handbag clock at the same time inspired the birth of the new Tiffany East West watch series in 2015. The smart rectangular lines of this watch are elegant and modern.
 Two important series that appeared in the 20th century were inspired by Tiffany’s birthplace-the United States and New York. The Streamerica® series, released in 1993, is a commemoration of the American industrial design movement in the 1930s. The surface shines with metallic luster; another classic symbol is the Atlas® series released in 1983. A tribute to the public clock, this watch’s stereo Roman numerals reflect light from multiple angles.
Pioneer
 Atlas® represents the natural transition of Tiffany watch design from history to modernity. Inheriting Tiffany’s glorious watchmaking heritage to this day are also luxurious diamond charm cocktail watches, and the new Tiffany CT60 series. The CT60 is equipped with a hand-assembled top Swiss-made movement and contains the infinite energy of New York in the 21st century. The lines are simple and pure, and the aesthetic style is unique. The inspiration prototype comes from a Tiffany gold watch donated by Franklin Roosevelt, then President of the United States in 1945. Roosevelt is one of several U.S. presidents who own Tiffany watches. The back of the case is engraved with ‘Franklin Delano Roosevelt, with loyalty, respect and affection.’ In the same year he wore this watch to the historic Yalta conference.
 The Tiffany CT60 series is a tribute to the founders of New York City. They are not just dreamers, they are great practitioners. Charles Tiffany is one of them. Talented and courageous, he interprets the essence of New York’s time and the broad feelings of the creative age for the world.

Within 50,000 Or Less Within 8 Seconds Recommended Mechanical Watch

  To sum up: if you want your watch to be accurate, you must make the mainspring as full as possible. This is more important for automatic watches. The second is to understand the position difference of the watch. Using the different accuracy errors of the watch when walking in different positions can correct the trend of the watch.

Tip: Position difference test

The test method is very simple. You need to wind the watch fully, and then use a standard time to align the hour, minute, and second of the watch under test, and synchronize them. Time comparison errors are recorded. Repeat the above process one by one, and test the actual running error of the watch face down, down, left, and up position, and record.

For example, the static test results are: +20 seconds / day on the face, +20 seconds / day below, +5 seconds / day on the bottom, +25 seconds / day on the left, +10 seconds / day on the top The actual walking time error of the watch is +15 seconds / day.

Taking the situation in the above example, it is clear that the watch should be placed downwards at night to help reduce the cumulative error of the watch. Only by having an accurate understanding of the cause of the error of the watch and the error characteristics of the watch can it serve you better.
