The Athens dual time zone ‘UN-24’ movement watch breaks through the traditional concept and boldly innovates the design. It adopts a window mode that displays the date to display the hour in the second time zone. Under the gorgeous case, there is a mysterious and delicate layout hidden. Next, please enjoy the black timepiece of the ‘UN-24’ movement with the dual time zone of Athens. The official model is: 246-00 / 42

       The exquisite dual time zone watch in Athens boldly innovates the design. The overall layout adopts a new style for unified planning, which allows it to cross the functional advantages and extend into the essence of the design. It provides a good for those who are always on the road. select.

       As shown, at 2 o’clock on the dial is a large window with a dual window display; at 9 o’clock is the second time zone hour display; at 6 o’clock is a small seconds dial, and below the large calendar display window is Athens English logo and anchor mark, clearly visible classic design. Based on the ETA 2892-A2 movement, the UN-24 movement has been improved. The circular display window in the second time zone is designed according to the date display window. It is a bold attempt to innovate, and the movement can guarantee a power reserve of 42 hours. Long.

       This watch uses 18K rose gold to create the case and crown, which breaks through the traditional process design principles, making the lugs square, which has a more three-dimensional beauty; the black scratch-resistant ceramic bezel is fully matched with rose gold. Extremely generous, and effectively protect the case and watch glass.

       The 18K rose gold checkered design crown makes manual winding more convenient, and it does not cause problems such as disengagement or even rotation. The Athens anchor mark on the front of the crown is clearly visible. The crown bridge is different from the previous design. The arc-shaped design effectively protects the crown and adds a new twist to the whole.

       On the 43mm black circular dial inside the black scratch-resistant ceramic bezel, various designs that highlight the three-dimensional feel are out of reach. The cross-symmetrical dynamic Roman time scales are exaggerated and novel; the rose gold hands and non-Roman time scales are manually polished; the square track design in the center of the dial surrounds the hands, the date, and the second time zone display. It is a combination of shapes and is also an alternative The beauty of art.

       The rose gold watch with a black alligator leather strap makes the overall layout more uniform; the claw-shaped connection between the strap and the lugs makes it more secure and not easy to loosen.

    Summary: The Athens dual time zone watch is made in Switzerland. The special second time zone display window brings new imagination, and also adds characteristic highlights to the entire watch. The square lug design is bold and exaggerated, and it is also a representative of a new type. I believe that many friends who love Athens will remember its unusual shape. Watches that cross time zones not only make it easier for business people on the road to grasp the time, but also exist as their status symbol.

    Superfast Chrono Porche 919 Jacky Ickx Limited Edition 100 pieces worldwide

    Extraordinary chronograph pays tribute to legendary driver Superfast Chrono Porsche 919

     
       In 2014, when Porsche team returned to the endurance championship, Chopard became the ‘official timing partner’ for this legendary German team. To celebrate this special collaboration, Chopard launched a Superfast watch inspired by the Porsche 919 Hybrid in 2014, which represented Porsche in the World Endurance Championship (LMP1). This year, Chopard has once again launched a new work-the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jack Exx Special Edition, and it is limited to 100 pieces. The new watch is designed to pay tribute to legendary driver Jack Aix, who has not only achieved great results, but also has been the image ambassador of Chopard and Porsche for many years. This timepiece uses the iconic colors of the legendary champion driver to pay tribute to his 6 wins in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

From 1967 to 1979, he participated in 114 Formula 1 Grand Prix races. At the age of 23 in 1968, he first tasted the joy of victory at the French Grand Prix. Jack Ecks is particularly well-known in the world for his outstanding performance in endurance races, especially in the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race. Four of the six wins have represented the Porsche team. This amazing record has not been broken for years. The most memorable victory is in 1969. At that time, all the cars stopped side by side on the track, and the drivers flexed their muscles, ready to rush to the car. There is only one exception-Jack Exx. The drivers were too late to fasten their seat belts in order to race against time. In protest of the way he believed to be extremely dangerous and unnecessary in the 24-hour endurance race, the Belgian driver decided to walk to his GT40 . He has fresh memories of last year’s Willy Mairesse accident. The driver’s Hunaudières raced into a skid and was eventually thrown out because of an unfastened seat belt and was seriously injured. At 1400 hours on June 14, 1969, other drivers raced towards the car, while Jack Ax walked firmly across the 24-hour endurance track. In the end, he won the Le Mans race with the smallest advantage in history: 120 meters. It turns out that you can complete a wonderful game without adopting the start method of others. Since then, the history of Le Mans endurance has entered a new stage. The following year, the rules of the game were completely revised. Drowsy Jack Axes risked losing important matches, leading to changes in the rules of the game.
