Hermès The Art Of Secret Time-news Hermès

Hermès has always been willing to challenge the distinctive display style, creating a special scene and atmosphere, immersing people in it. Therefore, in 2012, Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk was invited by Hermès to design an amazing display space for the brand’s series of watches, attracting countless people to stop and watch. In 2014, Hermes once again invited the Dutch artist Bethany de Forest to design and produce a series of fantasy window scenes. Hermès chose Bethany de Forest because she subverts the general idea and enhances our insight into the world in her tiny but imaginative dream scenes. In the keen emotion of this Dutch artist, Hermes watches have a fantastic way of presentation.

In 2014, Hermès once again invited Dutch artist Bethany de Forest to create a series of fantasy window scenes for watches.

Médor: secret time
Sometimes, design is a remake of beautiful things, and Médor watches perfectly interpret this meaning. The Médor watch, which was first born in 1993, was inspired by one of Hermès’ first products, which is synonymous with horse harnesses-dog collars. Dogs have long been human best friends. They are the same as horses and have always been the source of inspiration for the Hermès family. Médor then took a small step in the design, from the waist of the ladies to the wrist, appearing in the form of a bracelet. Concepts usually come one after another, and leather bracelets decorated with the representative ‘Clous de Paris’ pyramid-shaped studs are transformed into watches designed to provide you with ‘secret time’.

The ingenious and slightly naughty Médor watch builds an interesting relationship with time, which is sometimes hidden under a pyramid-shaped cover, sometimes exposed, without traces. Ingenious timepieces are available in a variety of color combinations, two sizes, and available in rose gold or steel pyramid studs. Médor watches are available with either ridged or full-set diamonds, making time carefully hidden even more precious.

The Standard Of A Good Watch (Below)

The Omega Constellation series was born in 1952. At the beginning of its birth, the ‘pie’ dials and ‘curls’ have been talked about by watch lovers. The dial of the ‘pie plate’ has a very unique shape, like an inverted pan. ‘Curved ears’ mean curved lugs.

   In 1968, Omega’s constellation series was replaced with an ‘abalone’ case and a pit pattern bezel, which remained very popular. The Omega Constellation Zunba watch combines the two most popular elements in the history of Omega Constellation, the ‘pie’ dial and the pit pattern bezel, impeccable from the outside to the inside.

   Turning the Zunba watch’s case, you can get a glimpse into the inner movement of the watch. The coaxial movement of the Omega 8900 to the Observatory watch is engraved with the observatory pattern. In addition, it has eight stars embossed. These eight stars not only represent the eight most important accuracy records created by the Omega movement in the 1940s and 1950s, but also symbolize the eight items that this new watch must pass to obtain the Observatory’s watch certification. Testing standards.

    To obtain the title of ‘Zhenzhen Observatory Watch’, it must first be equipped with the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC) certified astronomical watch movement, and secondly must pass the test approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). The Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC) certification has been introduced in detail in the previous article, and the so-called Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) -approved tests will be unfamiliar to many people. Specifically, METAS is eight strict testing standards .
Test the day’s average accuracy of the watch

 
   This is the first test that allows each watch to run for more than 4 days, simulating the accuracy of the watch under daily wear conditions. The specific operation is to first place the watch in different locations and temperature environments, then expose the watch to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss, then perform demagnetization, and finally test again in different locations and temperature environments. At each step, the watch is photographed and checked for accuracy after 24 hours relative to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
Operation of the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC) -certified movement exposed to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss

 
   This test only examines the movement of the watch, placing the movement in two different positions and exposing it to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss. Each position is left for 30 seconds, and the movement of the movement is checked by sound using a microphone.
Test day average accuracy error after exposure to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss

 
   This test is performed between the 2nd and the 3rd day after the first test and measures the average accuracy error of the watch. The results indicate the accuracy of the watch before and after exposure to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss.
How the watch is exposed to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss

 
   This test is similar to the third test. This time, it’s not just to test the movement, but to expose the entire watch to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss, and check the watch’s operation status with sound.
   The first four tests focus on the anti-magnetic aspect of the watch, and we can see the METAS standard’s emphasis on anti-magnetic detection. Anti-magnetic is also the most urgent challenge facing the traditional mechanical watches in today’s society. Magnetic fields are almost ubiquitous in life, and household appliances such as tablets, mobile phones, and even the metal buckles of belts or handbags can generate magnetic fields. Mechanical watches without innovative anti-magnetic technology, exposed to these magnetic fields for many years, will definitely affect the accuracy of the watch.
   After the four anti-magnetic tests are completed, waterproof and daily simulation tests are also performed.
Waterproof depth

 
   This test immerses the watch in water and gradually applies pressure until it reaches the pressure at a predetermined waterproof depth. Some watches are pressurized beyond the specified water resistance.
Power reserve

 
   Check the watch’s power reserve and take pictures before and after the start of the expected limit. Then check all errors again to ensure that each watch is running accurately within the given time. Even if your watch is left on the bedside table for a weekend, your watch will still work perfectly.
Time-lapse error of the watch between 100% and 33% power reserve

 
   Place the watch in six different positions, as on each side of the dice. Fully wound the watch, staying in each position for 30 seconds, and recording the average accuracy by sound. Then, the power reserve was reduced by 2/3, and it was checked again to ensure that the watch still maintained high accuracy without being fully wound.
Time error of the watch in six positions

 
   Similar to the previous test, when the watch is placed in six different positions, check for any errors during operation, like every side of the dice. Place each position for 30 seconds and record the result via audio. By placing the watch in different positions, we can ensure that the performance of the watch remains intact no matter what the wearer is doing, sitting at the table or participating in sports.
   The Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC) certification is a standard test for the accuracy of the movement, while the Swiss Federal Metrology Institute (METAS) approved tests are tests performed under daily wear of the watch and focus on antimagnetic to ensure Watch accuracy. On the premise of ensuring the accuracy of each movement, the entire watch can continue to maintain accurate movement in the daily wear of the user. This is very important for a watch. This should also be a measure of The standard of a good watch.

Ultra-thin Hollow Magic Tonda 1950 Skeleton

Parmigiani pays tribute to its iconic ultra-thin Tonda 1950—it is equipped with a fully skeletonized dial so that the smallest details of its mechanism are vividly displayed. The slim nature of the movement makes it very delicate. To be successfully hollowed out, it requires masterful extraordinary skills and an outstanding ability to faithfully interpret the superb skills inherent in the design of the movement. This process unreservedly demonstrates the exquisiteness of the movement-from the complexity of the transmission system to the beauty of each decoration, each one is presented. It is these details that make the Tonda 1950 Skeleton watch extremely rare.

Ultra-thin skeleton movement
   The new PF707 movement is ‘naked’ without concealment. The Tonda 1950 Skeleton watch presents its drivetrain in all aspects, including general hidden parts. Both the main splint and the bridge are hollowed to the maximum extent, and only necessary concealment is made according to the operation needs. This hollowing process needs to achieve precise balance in two aspects: on the one hand, the movement is clear at a glance, showing the mysterious characteristics; on the other hand, each component is kept sturdy, which is the basic to ensure that the watch operates strictly according to the design idea . The barrel also has an open design, so the winding source of the watch’s energy source, the winding mainspring, can also be seen with the naked eye. In addition, you can admire the micro-rotor on the surface of the movement from the back. Its exquisite decoration is worth savouring: the back of the balance is engraved with ‘barley grain’; The pattern of the iconic lugs. This lug pattern is intended to express a rotating movement: it highlights the rotating characteristics of the oscillating weight. The bridge and main splint of the PF707 movement have 18 internal angles, and every detail has been carefully arranged to add icing on the overall hollow design.
Seemingly invisible, but stylish
   The Tonda 1950 Skeleton watch uses a sapphire dial to ensure a clear view of the skeletonized movement without any visual impairment; only the edge of the mirror is covered with rose gold-plated metal flanges to show the minute track and hour markers. The back of the flange is delicately engraved, and the surface is decorated with fine and elegant concentric spiral patterns.
   The Tonda 1950 Skeleton watch has a multilayer structure, and the dial highlights this deep structure. Starting from the flange at the top of the hollowed-out movement, the multilayer structure unfolds one by one, which is required by its complex dynamic characteristics. The entire watch presents a fascinating 3D three-dimensional effect, attracting people’s admiration in the interweaving of light and shadow.
Subtle details
   The Tonda 1950 Skeleton watch has the long-lasting elegance that is unique to ultra-thin models, with subtle differences between every inch. Every detail can withstand scrutiny, thus achieving a harmonious ergonomic design with a golden ratio. Stainless steel case with a diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of only 8.2 mm. The case has been extended to create four lugs that act as a carrier for the strap: the iconic shape of a drop of water, which closely matches the curvature of the wrist, making the wearer’s wrist beautiful. Stainless steel folding clasp, adjustable in 5 positions. In addition, the wearer can adjust the length of the strap to a millimeter with a single touch, no longer having to cater for the regular holes of the leather strap. Every design is ergonomically considered and carefully crafted to ensure the wearer enjoys maximum comfort.
PF707 movement
   The Parmigiani watch factory uses all the cutting-edge watchmaking techniques to comprehensively improve the accuracy of the PF707 movement. It uses a weight balance wheel and abandons the traditional fast and slow needle adjustment mechanism. In this way, only the weight on the balance wheel can be adjusted to adjust the speed of the watch, instead of controlling the working length of the balance spring. The movement is more stable over a long period of time and more impact resistant, which also guarantees excellent isochronism. Thanks to the exquisite design and the expertise of the brand’s independent watchmaking center, the hollowing out of the PF707 movement allows its mysterious features to be presented to the world, and its solidity is not damaged.

Ballon Bleu de Cartier enamel beaded jaguar watch

Bead crafts appeared around 3,000 BC, but it didn’t reach its heyday until the Etruscans used to decorate valuables and jewellery in the 8th century BC. In order to revive this outstanding craftsmanship, Cartier has reinterpreted the pearl craftsmanship to create an extraordinary dial. This year, Cartier broke the limit and used different traditional techniques to create an enamel beaded dial. The master craftsman first cut the enamel into small pieces or crushed into powder, then stretched it into filaments, and then cut it into small pieces. After being heated by the welding torch, the filament segments will melt into pellets. The bead size depends on the diameter of the enamel filaments.

Ballon Bleu de Cartier

The master craftsman then placed the enamel beads into the base according to the color and shape of the artwork. The difficulty of this process is that the melting temperatures of different colors of enamel are different. The ball and enamel need to be fired more than thirty times according to a strict order to achieve the desired effect. The final work is breathtaking, the overall shape is meticulous, and it faithfully presents the jaguar’s deep eyes, light beards, and soft fur. This brand new work brings out the outstanding creativity of the Master Craftsmanship workshop. Engraving, polishing, enamel, jewellery, inlaying and watchmaking are integrated into one unique work.

The first animal design in this series was inspired by antiques from 1914, with a representative Ballon Bleu de Cartier case and jaguar pattern.

Ballon Bleu de Cartier Serti Vibrant

In 1914, Cartier first showed the jaguar pattern on a watch. Onyx and diamonds condense the beauty of nature, black and white staggered and paved the way, creating a precedent for speckled jewellery, heralding the advent of decorative arts advocating contrast.
