Introduction To Blancpain Villeret Series Full Calendar Moon Phase Table

The 1970s were the most painful and difficult days in the history of Swiss mechanical watchmaking. Cheap quartz watches flooded, flooding the world’s watch market, occupying the market share previously enjoyed by mechanical watches. In order to compete with the cheap quartz watches that were popular at the time, the mechanical watchmaking industry had to desperately cut costs on the original basis. The subtleties and complexities that have developed over the past century, representing the highest level of watchmaking technology, have gradually disappeared from the watch market due to the impact of reduced costs. Of course, the cost of a mechanical watch can never be as low as that of a quartz watch. Therefore, the price war is destined to end in the failure of the great mechanical watch family.
 In the early 1980s, Blancpain discovered the challenges faced by the mechanical watchmaking industry. To compete with quartz watches, reducing the production cost of mechanical watches cannot solve the problem. How to make mechanical watches attractive is the fundamental solution. Therefore, unlike the traditional watch making, which was simpler at that time, Blancpain did the opposite and made it more complicated and delicate.
Blancpain Villeret Moon Phase Moonwatch
 This Blancpain Villeret full-calendar moon phase watch summons Han Xizai’s wavy shape and Li Baiyue’s sole discretion in ‘Han Xizai Night Banquet’ with a slender voice. The sapphire crystal window on the back of the case, while appreciating its perfect mechanical structure, discovered that the deepest relationship between the stars and the time has long been hidden in the world’s smallest automatic movement displayed on this moon phase, including the month, date, and week. And those cups of light that shook for the rise and fall of the dynasty have already experienced countless moon toads in this source.

Introduction To Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine Collection

The ‘Limited Platinum Collection Collection’ launched by Vacheron Constantin in 2006 is now a member of the Patrimony Contemporaine series, which is also the 13th watch made of platinum in Vacheron Constantin’s product line. . It is also the third member of the ‘Limited Platinum Collection’, following the Patrimony Traditionnelle calibre 2253 and Patrimony Contemporainep pocket watches, with a limited edition of 150 pieces.
 The simple and elegant Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine series has always used a 40 mm diameter case, but this limited model has a 42 mm diameter design. The larger size makes the watch lines more slender, and the dial is more stretched visually.

 The new Patrimony Contemporaine self-winding watch features an elegant 950 platinum dial decorated with fine sandblasting, with the word PT950 engraved between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock. The bright curved outer ring is a minute scale circle and an 18K white gold hour scale. In addition to the case and crown made of 950 platinum, the hands are also made of this precious metal. For perfection, the watch also features a 950 platinum buckle and a dark blue crocodile leather strap hand-stitched with 950 platinum silk threads.
 The watch is equipped with a 1120 ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement with hour and minute display functions. Developed by Vacheron Constantin and bearing the prestigious imprint of Geneva. The thickness of the movement is 2.45mm and the diameter is about 28.4mm. It consists of 144 parts. It has 36 jewel bearings and a power reserve of 40 hours, with a vibration frequency of 19800vph. The watch is water resistant to 30m.

 Vacheron Constantin’s use of platinum dates back to 1820. Since then, the brand has been using this precious metal to interpret its timepiece designs seeking creativity and sophistication. Unlike 18K gold, which has a purity of only 75%, platinum has a purity of 95%, and it is produced only in a few places such as South Africa. Platinum has a higher density and weight than other metals. In other words, its durability and eternity are self-evident, and it is also regarded as a symbol of eternity. In addition, it will not be oxidized, and it will not be affected over time, making it a perfect product worthy of a lifetime collection.
