On January 10, 2015, the fourth round of the first season of the FIA Formula E Championship was held in the urban area of Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. As a co-founder and official timekeeper, the famous Swiss avant-garde precision watch pioneer TAG Heuer is honored to participate in the whole process.
On the occasion of the opening of the first Grand Prix of the new year, TAG Heuer held a special event at Paseo Fangio to pay tribute to the glorious history of motorsport and celebrate the bright future. Brand image ambassador Bruno Senna and relatives of Fangio assisted on the scene. Bruno Senna is the nephew of the famous F1 driver Elton Senna and one of the top drivers of the FIA Formula E Championship today; the Fangio family is a witness to the Argentine racing legend. The two generations of car queen met historically at Paseo Fangio. The electric car shone dazzling light under the sun, and the indelible bond between the generations of racers became clearer and closer.
As an important part of the celebration, TAG Heuer released two new Carrera series watches: the 39mm dial engraved with the iconic brand logo, a typical retro sports style. One is silver-blue color, the blue small seconds dial and the leather strap complement each other, classic and unconventional, it is the perfect choice for outstanding design lovers; the second is a black and silver chronograph with buttons Polished and polished, with chronograph and small seconds at 9 and 3 o’clock, the retro design draws inspiration from the TAG Heuer Carrera black-and-white ‘Panda’ series, which is popular with collectors.
The two new watches inherit TAG Heuer’s historical heritage and give them unique and modern innovations, ideal for both men and women.
Citizen launched the world’s most accurate quartz watch with an annual error of ± 1s. It is said that the quartz watch is accurate, but it does not mean that there is no error in the quartz movement. The temperature of the external environment will affect the vibration frequency of the quartz crystal of the movement, and its perfect temperature is 20 °. However, in real life, the temperature changes at any time, so errors will occur. Generally speaking, the monthly error of quartz movement is about 10 seconds. To solve this problem, a good quartz movement will have double quartz. The first quartz is responsible for traveling, the second is responsible for sensing the temperature and correcting the first. This technology can reduce the annual error to 5 seconds, which is also called ‘temperature compensation’. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the famous Japanese watch brand Citizen. To this end, the brand launched a quartz pocket watch, which achieved an annual error of ± 1 second without relying on radio time and GPS calibration. Precision quartz watch. ‘ To achieve such a high level, Citizen not only uses dual quartz temperature compensation technology, monitors the temperature and adjusts it in real time every minute, but also implements ‘shock cancellation’ and ‘automatic calibration’ of the stepper motor inside the movement. ‘. However, it was announced last year that it was just a sample, used by the brand for promotional purposes, and not for public sale. This year, Citizen finally launched a mass production version of its watch product Calibre 0100. With a 37.5 mm case, it has a simple design. According to the material and dial, it is divided into three models: 18K white gold case + ivory white dial, limited to 100 pieces, priced at about RMB 112,000; titanium alloy case + black plate + titanium alloy strap, limited to 500 Pieces, priced at about 50,000 yuan; titanium alloy case + mother-of-pearl dial + titanium alloy, limited to 200 pieces, priced at about 50,000 yuan. In addition to the ‘dual quartz temperature compensation technology’ mentioned earlier, the fundamental mystery of this Citizen’s annual error of ± 1s lies in the combination of ‘special vibration crystal’ and ‘photodynamic energy’. The crystal frequency of the traditional standard quartz movement is 32768 Hz, and this Calibre 0100 uses a special ‘AT-cut crystal’, which increases the vibration frequency by 8388608Hz, which is 256 times that of the traditional mechanical movement, which is faster than the mechanical watch Million times. At the same time, Citizen uses the brand’s iconic Eco-Drive light kinetic energy technology to convert light into electricity, continuously charge the watch, and provide energy for the high-oscillation frequency with high power consumption. This Calibre 0100 quartz watch does not need to be wound up every day like a manual mechanical watch, nor does it need to guarantee the amount of activity like an automatic mechanical watch. The annual error is only ± 1s. Easy to use, it can be said that it is very suitable for elderly wear! Everyone says buy it back and give it to the elders, okay? —END —
