Ingenuity series has always been good at developing manual winding mechanical movements. Last year, it was the first to use a fully automatic movement. In 2012, the collection continued to introduce new watches. With many years of hand-made experience, a new version of the Ingenious Series Second Hand Square Wheel Watch will be launched. The new ingenious calendar dial moon phase watch is, as always, equipped with the brand’s self-winding movement, this movement meets the most stringent traditional mechanical watchmaking standards.
现代 Components with a very modern design, reflecting the ‘Never Stop Moving’ philosophy advertised in the brand’s advertising campaign last year. The brand is based on the creation of a 10,000-year movement, and strives to make breakthroughs in the design of each watch. Time is an expression of uncompromising.
Nowadays, the general public and conservative and discerning connoisseurs will once again be shocked by the exquisite new series of square wheels. In 2010, Le Méridien revolutionized the first square wheel mechanism in watchmaking history. Leaving aside its pure aesthetic appeal, the new way of recording time alone is worth appreciating. In 2011, the Le Méridien square wheel watch focused on the second hand display, showing the passage of time at a new angle. This year, the Ingenious Series Second Hand Square Wheel Watch will be decorated with rose gold, so that its unique mechanical characteristics can be perfectly displayed.
Who can not be fascinated by the constant motion of the square gear? When it shines, it is really eye-catching and amazing. The case is rose gold, so is the other time information displayed, and the main plate of the movement is brown and black. The striking color contrast highlights the edges and corners of the gear frame, which is dazzling, as is the beautiful geometric pattern formed by straight lines and arcs. The geometric hollow square wheel mechanism is driven by a shamrock-shaped gear, which rotates steadily and regularly. Thanks to this movement, the small second hand is displayed in front of your eyes. Two unique gears fit seamlessly and fit perfectly. They work precisely to create a very dynamic vision, as if reminding the passage of time.

Hours, minutes and power reserve are displayed directly on the gold dial. The 46 mm diameter case offers ample scope for bold innovation. Alternating silk satin and polishing, large sapphire crystal case back, decorated with the most exquisite Swiss watchmaking heritage-Grand Colimaçon decoration, complements the fine quality of the ML156 mechanical movement inside it.
The new ingenuity series seconds hand square rose gold watch brings together the essence of this series, which can be called a perfect extraordinary work. This spirit promotes the perfect combination of engineering and aesthetics, challenging the design limit. This new watch has a strong masculine proposition and outstanding technical features, and is exquisite and luxurious, which once again consolidates the brand’s leading position as an innovation expert. It is the embodiment of cutting-edge watchmaking technology, which fully demonstrates Le Méridien’s outstanding technology in mechanical technology.
The square wheel mechanism was designed by watchmaker and engineer Michel Vernot in collaboration with the Haute Ecole Arc du Locle in Reno, Switzerland, and has been perfected for several years. Non-circular gears are theoretically irregular. The biggest problem facing this device is how to determine the shape of the teeth so that the gears can transmit kinetic energy at a uniform speed. In the end, Le Méridien adopted LIGA molding technology. This revolutionary high-precision micro-part combines advanced lithography, electroplating, and traditional processing.
VerMaster of watchmaking and engineer Michel Vernot has taught at the Haute Ecole Arc du Locle in Reno, Switzerland for more than 20 years. As an expert in watchmaking machinery and electronics, he has been responsible for various industrial projects in the academy. He now joins Le Méridien and is responsible for the R & D department of the brand movement.
