Breathtaking Art Jacques Dross, Lausanne Bega Ballet, Switzerland

This is an event between Jaquet Droz and Béjart Ballet Lausanne. Watchmaking and ballet also have deep historical accumulation and a commitment to the future, and also give intoxicating charm to the present time.

 Some collaborations are even more rare, for example, a passionate avant-garde watchmaker and an extraordinary artist each share a unique perspective on life, rich history and a bright future.

 Now Jacques Dro, the exclusive ‘Performance Partner’ of the Lausanne Bega Ballet in Switzerland, fulfills his promise with action. This watchmaking brand between La Chaux-de-Fonds and the dance group Maurice Béjart, a well-known ballet dancer who inherits the essence of art, is not a relationship of traditional art sponsorship, but two fields of art that pursue perfection and precision. Intersection and integration between the two. This is a creative collision flashing with wisdom. It is a sympathy between two great artists. They have a passion for dynamics. They regard time as an invaluable treasure. They have a deep understanding of the countless fleeting precious moments. Eternal beauty.

 One is dance wizard Maurice Béjart, who is a loyal guardian of contemporary dance art. Born in Marseille, France in 1927, he died in 2007 and is known as a ‘legend’ in the dance world. He has a free and active mind and a broad vision. He started his ballet career in Paris, France in 1946, and has lived in Brussels, Belgium for 30 years, creating many famous twentieth-century ballets. He then moved to Switzerland, introducing a revolutionary and lively performance method to Switzerland, and in 1987 established the Lausanne Bega Ballet. He has led dance groups touring around the world, traveling throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East and even the United States. He pursues perfection in his stage performance. His works, such as the famous ‘Sacre du printemps’ (1959), ‘Symphonie pour un homme seul’, and ‘Oiseau de feu’, have become the models of contemporary ballet, and nowadays by Gil Roman It was carried forward with the dancers of the Lausanne Bega Ballet.

 The other is a legend of another era. Born in 1721 in the Jura region of Switzerland, Pierre Jaquet-Droz was one of the talented watchmakers of the Enlightenment. He is an outstanding technician, an unparalleled businessman, and a veritable artist. He is good at understanding and even predicting the tastes and needs of male and female customers of the same era. His clockwork, musical timepieces, crafts and automatic dolls conquered the royal courts of European countries. Today, Marc Alexander Hayek, the president of Jacques Dro, has a unique vision, which not only rejuvenates the brand, but also strengthens the brand’s ambition that has remained unchanged since its inception: with superb watchmaking technology and exquisite decorative arts, Makes time shine.

 The encounter between watchmaking and ballet is also an amazing time journey. Through centuries of time, the two harmonious and common philosophies are fused together. On the one hand, it is the control of the limbs, the perfect and precise dance movement, and the instant burst of creativity, originality and courage. On the other hand, it is Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s ‘surprising surprise’, ‘amazing harmony and unity’, and the unremitting pursuit of ‘perfect and outstanding’. For Maurice Béjart and Pierre Jaquet-Droz, this keen sensibility for the beauty of ultimate harmony is always with perseverance and perseverance beyond limits Linked together. Dancers must be strict with themselves and diligent in training, as well as watchmakers. The former constantly designs and changes complex dance movements, while the latter strives to create clever clock parts. It also requires perseverance and persistence in faith.

 Jaquet Droz and Lausanne Bega Ballet are not far from each other geographically. They are located in the beautiful hinterland of Switzerland. Therefore, it is necessary to understand each other better to understand the reason why the two attract each other. Maurice Béjart is a veritable limb magician. Throughout her long dance career, her body movements have demonstrated shocking artistic tension. This is in line with the work of Pierre Jaquet-Droz. The designed automatic puppets ‘Musician’, ‘Painter’ and ‘Writer’ have the same effect. The three automatic puppets are exquisitely made, raised their hands and smiled, all of which are lifelike and amazing. All timepieces produced by Jaquet Droz are infused with ingenious design and exquisite craftsmanship, just like the famous The BirdRepeater watch and The CharmingBird watch. The mechanical bird sings softly, flutters, and comes alive.

 The partnership between Jaquet Droz and the Lausanne Bega Ballet also reflects that they share the same heritage and are committed to accumulating history and traditions and carrying them forward in a vibrant and vivid way from generation to generation. In La Chaux-de-Fonds, Montres Jaquet Droz SA founded the Le Ateliers d’Art. While carefully protecting the exclusive craftsmanship, it also integrates 21st century modern technology, just like Pierre What Pierre Jaquet-Droz did in the eighteenth century. In Lausanne, Gil Roman became the heir to Maurice Béjart’s dance art. The passionate dancer started to dance at the age of 7, and followed Maurice Béjart in the 1980s, starring in ‘Pyramide’, ‘LeMandarin merveilleux’, ‘La Route de la soie’, ‘Dibouk’ ‘And other repertoire. For this outstanding artist and dance design, how to inherit the essence of Maurice Béjart’s dance art is indeed a difficult challenge, because dance movements are like flowing clouds, and it is difficult to ‘record’ them in archives. In. However, in each interpretation of Maurice Béjart’s works of art, the Lausanne Bega Ballet is able to freeze its ‘artistic essence’ at an instant, thereby demonstrating its moving artistic charm. Jaquet Droz and the Lausanne Bega Ballet know that time is never gone. Instead of trying to prevent time from moving forward, it is better to use wisdom and ingenuity in your own way in the passage of time. Make wonderful moments an eternal legend.

 The new partnership between the two is based on the glorious past and a bright future, and coincides with the artistic concept of Maurice Béjart, just as he called it ‘Un instant dans la According to the memoir of ‘vie d’autrui’: ‘Beyond the times, it can bring joy to achieve dreams.’

Zhen Lishi Classical Elegance Four Yingjie Commander Series

After years of uncontrollable years, many watch models have been released that are amazing to the world. Zenith once again turned the brand’s end point back to the classic and elegant aspect. Inspired by Captain, introduced in 1952, the name of ‘commander’ sounds reminiscent of ocean adventures and precise navigation. Captain is also a beautiful gem of the Zenith watch factory.
Captain Winsor Annual Calendar
     Captain Winsor Annual Calendar Chronograph, 18K rose gold case, 42 mm diameter, hours, minutes, small seconds, date, day of the week, month, chronograph stopwatch, El Primero4054 self-winding movement, 36,000 vibrations: hours , Power reserve 50 hours, sapphire crystal glass and back cover, waterproof 50 meters, alligator strap with 18K gold pin buckle.
The Captain series, which is re-emerged, retains the characteristics of the original Captain appearance. It is equipped with a crown prince-like hands and a long tapered time scale, showing a bit of nostalgia; the case has been enlarged to 40 mm, which is more representative of the sharp and crisp feel. There are ‘commanders’ who are smart and capable, but do not have the feeling of persistence and maturity. The new generation of Captain watches are equipped with Zenith’s self-winding movement. In terms of technology and chronological performance, they reflect the exquisite craftsmanship of the Zenith watch factory, including CaptainWinsor calendar watches, Power Reserve power reserve watches, and Dual Time time watches. , And the Captain GrandDate Moonphase watch, can be described as ‘one door four masters’, different style and performance, but each has its own fascinating features.
The Captain Winsor Almanac Chronograph is the latest sophisticated performance watch from the Captain series. Its design is attributed to the talented museum curator Ludwig Oechslin of the La Chaux-de-Fonds International Clock Museum. Month, but only need to be adjusted once a year. For many chronograph collectors, the complex performance of the almanac is more intimate than the perpetual calendar performance. The layout of the timepiece is clear and easy to read, with unique ingenuity. The time is displayed on three different dials: the outer dial displays the date, the middle dial displays the month, and the inner dial displays the week. This mechanism has a simple and elegant appearance and complex and sophisticated operation. When the number of days is 31 days, the date dial advances the month dial. When the number of days is 30 days, the month dial skips the number 31 directly. Manual adjustments are only needed at the meeting in February and March.
Unlike other Captain styles, Captain Winsor is equipped with an El Primero 4054 self-winding movement, which can vibrate up to 36,000 times per hour, with very accurate travel time. The Captain Winsor calendar is available in silver or luminous blue with a stainless steel case, or with a 18K rose gold case.
Captain Grand Date Moonphase
Captain large date moon phase watch, 18K rose gold case, 42 mm diameter, hours, minutes, small seconds, large date, moon phase display, Elite 691 self-winding movement, vibration frequency 28,800 hours, power reserve 50 hours , Sapphire crystal glass and back cover, waterproof 50 meters, alligator leather strap with 18K gold pin buckle.
Date display is one of the most practical features. Common display panels have two types of devices: general date and large date. The general date display uses a circular date dial, which moves one space a day, and the structure is simpler. On the contrary, the big date mechanism is much more complicated. The window adopts a dual-disc design. The two discs are printed with 0-3 tens and 0-9 digits, respectively. complex. However, the big date also has structural differences: the general double-disc design, there is a gap between the two discs, so the designer mostly uses two square window frames to cover the difference between the height of the double-disc. The more sophisticated large date plate uses transparent film and double plates to make the double plates look tight and seamless, naturally without window frames. Zenith is one of the few brands currently using such precision large date windows.
In addition to the meticulous large date window, the moon phase of the Captain Grand Date Moonphase watch is also intriguing. Its moon phase window is an umbrella-shaped hollow design, with a floating cloud shape below and a radial pattern on it. The case and face plate of the Captain large date moon phase watch are polished, and the workmanship is maintained at a high level. The overall style is simple and low-key, without exaggerated ornaments. The watch is equipped with an Elite 691 automatic movement. The balance vibrates at 28,800 times per hour. The power reserve is 50 hours. It has the functions of date jump and fast date adjustment.
Captain Power Reserve watch recreates the classic nautical atmosphere
Captain Power Reserve watch, rose gold case, 40 mm diameter, hours, minutes, seconds, date, power reserve display, Elite 685 self-winding movement, power reserve 55 hours, water resistance 50 meters, alligator leather Strap.
The power reserve performance is the watch closest to the characteristics of seafarers or naval commanders, because when they are sailing at sea, it is not easy to detect the passage of time, and it is often easy to ignore the time when the marine clock should be wound. Most useful. From this point of view, the Captain Power Reserve display is arguably the most nautical style in the Captain series.
Speaking of which, in today’s science and technology, many watches and clocks are even more fun than practical. It is not easy to display the power reserve display in a lively and interesting way, because the display panel of the power reserve display is not only fan-shaped or circular, but if it is too complicated, it may not be easy to read, so it is mostly simple to win. The Captain Power Reserve watch is still designed in accordance with the principle of simplicity, but the design of the fan-shaped plate reveals a few Fu of the navigation instrument panel. The simple concept reveals the original intention of research and development. The Captain Power Reserve watch keeps the power reserve display at 2 o’clock in the principle of retaining the classic design. The date, small seconds and rose gold hour markers and hands at 6-9 o’clock all adhere to the low-key principle, which contrasts the fan-shaped power reserve display at 2 o’clock.
Captain Dual Time
Captain Dual Time watch, stainless steel case, diameter 42 mm, hours, minutes, small seconds, date, second time display, Elite 682 self-winding movement, vibration frequency 28,800 times: hours, power reserve 50 hours, sapphire crystal and back cover, waterproof to 50 meters, alligator strap.
As long as the aircraft takes off to a foreign country, most of the time, there is a problem of time difference. With the two time watches, it is easy to master the home time. Although the source of R & D of the Captain series comes from the sea, the word Captain is applicable to both the air, sea and air forces. The history of the time performance of the two places can be traced back to the 18th century. It was mainly developed in response to the needs of international traders. At first, the dual movement device was used. Since the case of the pocket watch is large enough, the method of loading two movements is fast and simple. After that, another group of display modules was developed to display the second time. Of course, for Zenith, known for its watchmaking technology, the time performance of the two places is a small case, mainly due to the beauty of the face plate configuration and the sharpness when reading.
Captain Dual Time is inspired by the flight navigator in the cockpit. The new watch has a diameter of 40 mm. The new Captain Dual Time timepiece continues the modern classic mix and match style of the Captain series. The case and lugs are polished in bright and matte fashion, with clean lines and full of modernity; tapered hour markers and Paris stud carving. The dial gives the face a classic touch. The two-hour time display on the 24-hour clock is arranged on the outermost circle of the faceplate. It is clearly marked with black Arabic numerals and blue triangle hands. The date and small seconds dial are arranged at 6 and 9 o’clock respectively, and the design is small and simple.
