 History of Writing Time

Girard Perregaux GP Circuito Illustration

    As early as the 19th century, chronographs were born. Girard Perregaux began producing chronograph watches at the time. The ultra-precise and elegant pocket watches have created a legendary history of Girard-Perregaux dedicated to the pursuit of precision. The precise design is equipped with a double-second chronograph function, which is used to calculate the time interval in the middle, or two activities with the same start time and different end time.
    These designs symbolize the vitality and spirit of the brand, and over time, watches from the 1920s and 1930s followed. Since then, GP Girard Perregaux has successfully created a number of chronograph sports watches renowned for reliability and stability, relying on professional technology. In the 1950s, Girard Perregaux designed chronographs specifically designed to meet the needs of engineers. Later in the 1960s, more sporty styles were introduced, as well as timepieces capable of calculating short periods of time, bringing to the younger generation chronographs that could calculate their athletic performance. At the same time, GP Girard Perregaux’s ‘Ready-Go’ three-timer watch specially designed for rally and motorcycle riders was also launched with great success.
Reinventing classics and paying tribute to the racing world

    In the 1990s, these classic designs inspired the management who loved racing at the time, so they relaunched the chronograph inspired by the 1960s design to pay tribute to the racing world.
    This year’s Girard Perregaux presents the ‘Sport Competizione’ chronograph series, which is inspired by cars and pays tribute to the fast world. The newly designed lines perfectly integrate the retro style and the future style, reminiscent of the world famous 1987 ‘Club Italia’ chronograph watch. That golden age of quartz symbolized the rebuilding of an emerging market for quality and classic products.

The Most Cost-effective Luxury Diving Watch

This year, Breitling has launched a new super ocean diving watch. Surprisingly, when Breitling changed the B word logo across the board, only the new Super Ocean, the logo did not change, and the winged logo will continue to be used on the new 2019 models.

Breitling’s new super ocean
 Super Ocean is one of Breitling’s hottest watches in China. The comprehensive quality of Breitling Super Ocean is relatively high. It is certified by the observatory, plus a public price of more than 20,000 (steel case tape), which is lower than the general price of luxury diving watches of the same level. It is relatively close to the people, so people who buy it It has a large circulation capacity. In the depth of the domestic masses, it has basically become a popular diving watch alongside Rolex water ghosts, Omega seahorses and Blancpain.
 Therefore, this year’s Super Ocean Update is a major change for players who like Breitling. The change of old and new will bring some changes to the circulation of Super Ocean. So today I want to highlight the changes in the new Super Ocean compared to the old one.

Breitling’s new super ocean
Why did Super Ocean not change the logo?

 Breitling’s biggest change in recent years is to change the logo. Almost all watches have replaced the LOGO with a new single B logo. And this year’s new super ocean did not change, continue to use the previous wings of the B word. Regarding Breitling’s replacement of LOGO, there are many discussions and speculations among players, such as general watch replacement, sports watch does not change, and so on. Based on the situation of Super Ocean this year, I deliberately asked senior people inside Breitling, and gave a precise and reasonable explanation.

Two signs of Breitling.
 As you know, the single B-character is actually the earliest symbol in Breitling history. Later, the familiar wing logo was redesigned after Breitling. In this logo change, every single watch that was born early in Breitling’s history, such as navitimer, and vintage models such as marine culture (the marine culture is a design that continued from 1957), has replaced the single B logo. In other words, if it is related to the history of Breitling, it will be replaced with a single B-logo. And like Super Ocean, this newly designed watch continued to use the wings logo. In a word, the retro historical line is a single B character; the modern line is a wing mark. What sign is determined by the historical stage of the birth of the watch.

Breitling’s new Super Ocean uses wings.
What’s changed in the new Super Ocean?

 This year’s new super ocean, compared to the old model, the appearance has changed a lot.
 The first big change is the dial. Everyone is familiar with the old super ocean disk. Huge 1 to 12 digit time scales, inside the digit time scales, there is a circle of 13 to 24 small numbers. On the outer ring of the dial is a digital scale. The face of the old model looks more complicated. The new Super Ocean greatly simplifies the face of the plate, with long time scales on the surface and huge 6, 9, 12 time scales. The face is very simple and more modern.

Breitling’s new Super Ocean (left) vs. the old Super Ocean (right). The surface of the disk has changed a lot.
 Because Breitling Super Ocean has a variety of sizes from large to small, the contrast between the new and old disks on the large size model is actually not so obvious, and on the small 36 mm model, the contrast is very obvious. Because the 36 mm version is small in size, there are too many things on the old plate, and it seems crowded at the small size. And the new plate is very coordinated in small size.

Breitling’s new super ocean
 The second change in the new Super Ocean is the bezel. We know that the bezel of the old Super Ocean is a rubber bezel. The numbers on the bezel are raised. The new Super Ocean has a new coated bezel. Although the Breitling official website and other introductions did not write about the bezel material in detail, I learned through understanding that it should be a new coating on the steel ring. The numbers on the new bezel are integrated with the bezel. Compared to the rubber ring.

Breitling’s new Super Ocean 46mm version. The 46mm model is black-plated in steel.
 The new Super Ocean movement has not changed, and continues to use Breitling 17 movement, which is an improved 2824 of Breitling. 38 hours power, certified by the observatory. Breitling watches are certified by the Observatory, and Breitling is also one of the largest households in Switzerland. So whether it is a Breitling self-produced movement or a general-purpose movement used by Breitling, the quality of the movement is relatively guaranteed. In addition, we would like to remind you that the Breitling self-produced watch has a five-year warranty and the universal watch has a two-year warranty. Super Ocean is 2 years old.

Breitling’s new Super Ocean 44mm version is a regular steel case.
 The great thing about Breitling Super Ocean is that it’s very full size. Including 46 mm, 44 mm, 42 mm, 36 mm, from large 46 to neutral 36, from male to female, all covered, can be worn on any wrist. Full size like Super Ocean is very rare in luxury diving watches. This year’s new Super Ocean has added color matching. The 46mm steel shell is plated in black, ordinary steel, black, white, orange, dark blue, and light blue.
Price is a big advantage of Breitling Super Ocean.
 The public price of various sizes of tape version is basically below 30,000.
 46mm tape version 34600
 44mm tape version 26000
 42mm tape version 25200
 36mm tape version 25200

 To be honest, the price of Super Ocean is relatively low in luxury diving watches. Like the Omega seahorse, IWC marine timepieces, etc., the price alone is more expensive than the super ocean (water ghosts, 50 yuan will not say). In general, Super Ocean is a cost-effective watch, but the configuration of each diving watch is different, the price is high or low, you need to make a decision between price and configuration. Now the new Super Ocean is gradually on the market. I also looked at it on the weekends. Now that the new model has arrived, the amount will increase.

Breitling’s new Super Ocean 36mm white plate.
 I think the advantage of Super Ocean is that the brand is strong, relatively cheap and durable (46 waterproof 2000 meters, 44 waterproof 1000 meters, 42 waterproof 500 meters), usually we wear a sports watch, just for a table-take-all, but also durable. But now some sports watches are more ‘delicate’ because of material problems. Super Ocean belongs to the kind of watch that is usually suitable for wearing at any time, easy to wear and practical.

Most Romantic Top Watch Moon Phase Watch

Recording time is pediatrics that can be played in any small watch and small field. With the development of the world, wristwatches have been endowed with richer functions and become one of the most loved challenges of watchmakers. Moonphase is one of them. The moon phase watch was born in the fierce battle of watch manufacturing at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century. After the complicated mechanical tourbillon conquered the clamp of gravity, the moon phase function started the milestone of the intersection of mechanics and astronomy. But at the same time, the moon phase function is also the most controversial watch function-the supporting party said it was a chicken rib, and the disgust accused it of being the most useless watch function. What is the moon phase?
月 The term ‘phase of the moon’ was originally an astronomical term in English. The moon illuminates by reflecting the sunlight, and its relative position with the sun will show various shapes. In short, it is the change in the lack of the moon. Since ancient times, the Gregorian calendar is the current Gregorian calendar based on the Gregorian calendar; the Gregorian calendar is based on the lack of the moon and the moon.

What is the moon phase chart?
As a carrier of time, the regular movement of the moon phase is naturally included in the clock. As early as the 17th century, clocks had moon phase functions. The large table clock with moon phase display was the original carrier of the combination of clocks and moons. Since then, with the evolution of clock manufacturing technology and form, this function has been logically added to pocket watches and watches.
The moon phase function appeared on the dial immediately, and brought wonderful vitality to the entire watch. Inside this usually semi-circular window, there is often a small round face to hide and seek with you, and this represents the shape shown by the round face of the moon, which happens to be the profit and loss state of the moon.
How the Moon Phase Table Works
The moon phase shows the state of the moon on the moon phase card according to a period of 29.5 days (that is, a month of confluence). This moon card has two moons (patterns) with 59 teeth on the edges. The error caused by this mechanism is so small as to be negligible in terms of the moon phase display function. The precise rotation period of the moon is 28 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.9 seconds.
The display of the moon phase usually involves digging out a special shape window on the dial, and using the moon face on the moon card to display it. This particular shape includes a semicircular arc and two small arcs. This well-designed shape combined with the moon on the moon card can tell us more accurately the shape of the moon at the beginning or end of a cycle. This sounds complicated, but in the final analysis, it is just imitating the direction of the moon.
Adjustment of Moon Phase Table
The moon phase watch has an adjustment button on the side of the case, which is used to adjust the indication error. The easiest time to refer to and adjust is to adjust the pattern of the full moon to the center of the window when it is full. Like calendars and weekly calendars, the moon phase disk also rotates in one direction, and it cannot be adjusted in the opposite direction.
The error of the moon phase table
Because the moon’s revolution cycle is not exactly 29.5 days, but 29.53059 days, based on this basic design, an error of about one day occurs every two years. As a result, the masters and masters of watchmaking began to make painstaking research and development and improvement. Today’s most accurate moon phase table, its adjustment cycle has reached hundreds of years, or even thousands of years. Regardless of the life of the watch itself, at least in your lifetime, you don’t have to worry about this issue anymore.
不同 Different moon phases in the northern and southern hemispheres
By the way, due to the different latitudes of the earth, it is not difficult to understand that the moon phases are reversed in the northern and southern hemispheres. If you stand on the northern hemisphere and take the big top, you can see the situation in the southern hemisphere. It’s really ‘secretly changing’ in his face. Currently there is only one IWC Portuguese watch on the market with north and south moon phases indication.

Pilot’s Watch: Master The Time Angle (Below)

Since its creation, the clock has been closely linked to humanity’s greatest adventure, and conquering the sky is no exception. From the first test flight, watchmakers have developed practical tools to meet the needs of pilots. They are still shaping and telling the image of the awesome aviation adventurer.

Lin Bai Zheng Kong Ji

   It is worth remembering that from the 1920s to the 1940s, pilots-even aircraft engineers-were using sextant and Nautical Almanac to calculate their longitude and latitude positions, just like the crew at sea. The nautical calendar can be used to determine the true solar time of a particular date. To this day, it is still an important dependency for adventurers who do not rely on GPS navigation, but we often forget. It is also worth noting that there is a difference between the Mean Time displayed on the watch dial and the true solar time provided by the sun. This difference changes over time and is called the ‘time equation.’ The specific difference between different dates can be read from the table on the nautical calendar or advanced watches equipped with the ‘time equation’ complication (Panerai, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, Breguet, etc.).

Longines White Forest Angle Watch

   Once the true noon is determined (when the sun reaches its apex, the normal solar time is added and subtracted), and then the solar declination of the date is determined, the operator can use the sextant to perform angle measurement and calculate the latitude. It needs to be emphasized that in order to minimize the risk of calculation errors, multiple measurements are useful, because the movement of an aircraft or a ship may cause reading errors, and this risk can be eliminated by averaging calculations.

90th Anniversary Limited Edition

Example of Latitude Calculation
   Let us assume that at the moment of the northern half of the hemisphere (spring or autumn equinox), the observer is located between the North Pole and the Equator. When the sun moves along an orbit from east to west and appears at exactly south (that is, the highest point of a given latitude in the northern hemisphere), if the height of the sun (relative to the horizon) measured with a sextant is 35 °, then observe The latitude of the person should be a reciprocal angle with the height of the sun, that is, 55 ° north latitude.

   After the latitude is estimated, the operator must measure the longitude again to determine the coordinate position by comprehensive latitude and longitude. In order to calculate the local hour or longitude (originating from spherical trigonometry, a special manual is now available), observers must compare the solar time at their location with a reference time, which is usually based on the Greenwich Meridian (UTC or Coordinated World) Time). In this way, the hour and angle information is obtained, and then converted into degrees, minutes, and seconds, which can be used by the navigator to obtain his own longitude position.

Principle of Longitude Calculation
   The principle of longitude calculation is very simple: the time difference between the reference time (Greenwich) and the measurement time (local) corresponds to 15 ° per hour, 1 ° every 4 minutes, and 450 meters per second. In this way, time corresponds to an angle of 15 ‘every 60 seconds (1 ° is equal to 60’ and 15 ‘is equal to 0.25 °).

Operating Longines Angle Watch
   First, wearers of hour-angle watches should be aware that in order to be useful and efficient, the watch needs to be set to GMT, just like a marine astronomical clock. The radio hour signal transmitted by the long wave helps the watch display time to perfectly synchronize with GMT.
   Although the hour-angle watch (sweep seconds) does not have a stop or reset function, Longines watchmakers are equipped with a two-way rotating inner dial (based on the Weems patent), allowing the operator to precisely adjust the sweep seconds scale, Does not affect the normal operation of the watch.
   At every hour of the hour, the radio will beep. At the last moment of the announcement, the second hand must be aligned with the inner dial ’60/15’. Mechanical watches are very sensitive to vibrations, and watches without anti-magnetic protection may change in accuracy. Therefore, it is necessary to periodically reset the time to ensure the most accurate measurement.

Determination of longitude
   After the correct Greenwich Mean Time is displayed on the dial, the observer must use the sextant to measure the noon of the sun where he is. Taking the right measurements to accurately determine longitude information is crucial to knowing when the Sun in Greenwich will reach its zenith (including jet lag), and these can be found in the nautical calendar.
   What a wearer of an hour watch needs to do is estimate the time it takes for the sun to rise to its apex. At the right time, he needs to take a series of measurements with a sextant and then compare this time to the GMT time shown on his watch. The difference between the two times can be converted into local and Greenwich longitude differences (degrees, minutes, seconds). Then by integrating previously known latitude information, the observer’s immediate position can be obtained.

Reading the hour
   If you want to use the Longines Time Angle Watch to measure the position of the observer, you must convert the time information (measurement time) displayed on the dial into angle information (degrees, minutes, seconds). The degree information (15, 30 … 180) marked below the Roman numerals can be read by the hour hand.
   In addition, in order to further refine and refine, you need to read the digital information carved on the bezel with the minute hand (1 to 15, corresponding to 1 ° every 4 minutes, and 1 ° is subdivided into 15 ′, 30 ′, and 45 ′). Finally, the ‘second’ (‘) information in the angle is completed by the second hand and the inner dial scale .
