Classic Audemars Piguet 26100bc.Oo.D002cr.01 Watch Tasting

Audemars Piguet adheres to its brand philosophy of ‘driving the routine and forging innovation’, and has created a highly skilled watch, becoming one of the world’s three major watchmaking brands. Audemars Piguet has always attracted the attention of watch lovers with its fresh sports style. While high-end people play watches, they will naturally choose brands that are innovative and work well. His personality, coupled with the brand’s reputation, is highly regarded.
The watch I appreciate today is the 26100BC.OO.D002CR.01 watch under the Audemars Piguet classic series. It combines the chronograph and classical elements to reflect the charm of classical chronograph.
The Audemars Piguet 26100BC.OO.D002CR.01 watch embellishes the watch with rich classical elements in its appearance, and puts the timekeeping in it through a reasonable layout, which is a contradictory breakthrough.

In previous watches, it seems that classicism and timing elements full of movement and passion are not compatible, because the precipitation and taste of classical needs are static, but the timing needs are exactly the opposite active and dynamic. of. Audemars Piguet combined the two to create the 26100BC.OO.D002CR.01 watch.
 Inside the platinum case, there is a ‘tangled’ dial, classical Arabic numerals, track-like scales, and pear-shaped hands, exuding a strong classic taste, especially the beige color of the dial, which can not help but let the wrist The surface is covered with a mysterious veil, and it seems to have a special meaning.
On top of these elements, it is full of dynamic elements such as timing, speed measurement and small seconds, which makes its positioning ambiguous. In the end, is it a watch worn on the wrist for appreciation, or a watch that can be used in the arena? A watch that provides accurate timekeeping? Obviously, it is ‘special.’
In terms of functions, as mentioned earlier, it has two functions: timing and speed measurement.
 The chronograph is no longer familiar. The chronograph is to place the stopwatch in the watch and use the mechanical structure to time. The central large chronograph second hand counts seconds, and the 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock counts the minutes to form a chronograph function. With the advent of chronograph, the second hand can only be placed on one side of the watch. Of course, the second hand can “recapture” its own position unless it has the same structure as the common second hand and chronograph second hand like Patek Philippe’s Nautilus.

 The speed measurement function is a function relying on timekeeping. It is indicated by the central chronograph second hand. The standard unit is one kilometer. At the end, the scale indicated by the chronograph second hand is the average speed in the process. Unlike most other speed measurement functions, it can measure sports that take more than one minute, so it has a wider range of applications, and can basically measure the speed of normal running.
 The Audemars Piguet Classic Series 26100BC.OO.D002CR.01 watch is rich in classical elements, including color, scale, hands, track scale, round case, etc., which makes the watch’s appearance exceptionally elegant and full of retroism. Functionally, it integrates the two functions of timekeeping and speed measurement that are incompatible with classics, making the watch unique. On the movement is the Cal.3126 / 3841 movement produced by the brand. With the module, the movement thickness is 7 mm and the diameter is 29.92 mm. It is also equipped with a 110 ° two-way automatic winding 22k gold automatic oscillating weight, and Using ball bearings, the most important thing is that it uses a balance wheel stop device and a cam timing device to improve the performance of the watch.
 In general, Audemars Piguet’s classicism ‘classic watch’ can be said to be a combination of contradictions, or a new direction of development.

Charles Tiffany The Founder Of Tiffany & Co. And The Brand New Tiffany Ct60 Watch Collection

Charles Tiffany is the founder of the greatest New York jewellery pioneer Tiffany & Co. Tiffany. At every moment in his life, he has never stopped accepting challenges and will be one of his gorgeous dreams achieve. His grandiose dreams and courage make him a veritable ‘Inventor of the New York Minute’, which represents the energy and innovative spirit of New York City. The Atlas Hercules giant clock that he set up outside the boutique in his early years now stands above the store’s entrance during Fifth Avenue.

 His vision has been shown since his youth. In 1837, he opened his first boutique on Broadway with 1,000 dollars borrowed from his father. Although New York was still in the financial crisis at that time, Tiffany, 25, saw business opportunities-he bought the latest French accessories, bronzes from ancient India and Chinese ceramics from the captains of New York and Boston ports, and then Sell ​​it to customers who are extremely interested in these beautiful objects. Within a few years, he successfully introduced important diamond jewellery to the US market for the first time, and began selling fine clocks and pocket watches. In the 1860s, he had become the most famous diamond dealer in the United States.
 ‘Good business comes from good design.’ He often drew this sentence and never stopped exploring good design. In 1858, the telegraph cable across the Atlantic needed to be replaced. He bought a 20-mile cable, cut it into 4-inch sections, and designed it with brass as a souvenir. He also designed paperweights, timepiece pendants, and canes. And umbrella handle. On the day when these products were officially launched, crowds inside and outside the store forced New York police to dispatch police officers to control the order on the scene.
 Soon after, Mr. Tiffany set foot on the land of London and Paris, bringing jewellery from the royal family to the United States to meet the needs of the growing wealthy class in the United States. In 1887 he purchased one-third of French royal jewellery, and the enthusiasm of royal society for royal jewellery in New York reached its climax this year. On this long list of noble customers, there are many famous names, such as Ms. Joseph Pulitzer and New York Social Queen Caroline Astor, who bought the diamond brooch that Queen Eugenie once owned. In pursuit, Mr. Tiffany exhibited a number of beautiful jewellery designs at the Paris World Expo, won many gold awards, and thus became the royal jeweler of the European royal family.
 When the 20th century arrived, Tiffany had become the world’s leading jeweller, not only with a booming business, but also with a world-renowned work. As a pioneer of the times, Mr. Tiffany funded the construction of the Statue of Liberty and many parks in New York City, and was one of the first trustees of the Metropolitan Museum and the American Museum of Natural History. Members of the Tiffany family are prominent figures in New York’s social circle. They danced at the legendary ball of the Astor family and staggered in Newport, Rhode Island.
 Newspaper and magazine praises Charles Tiffany. Harper’s Weekly (1891) considers him an unparalleled entrepreneur and ‘to date the greatest leader in the jewelry and art world.’
 Mr. Tiffany died at the age of 90 in 1902. The business was suspended for silence. The Financial Record rates him as one of the greatest public figures and distinguished celebrities of this era. ‘

The Splendor Of Italian Jewelry For One Hundred And Twenty-five Years

Bulgari has ushered in its 125th anniversary. From September 13, 2009, it goes back to 125 years ago. The brand The first page of history was written in Rome’s famous Palazzo delle Esposizioni.

   An exhibition titled ‘Between History and Eternity: 1884-2009’ recalls the most glorious chapter in the company’s history, and the most critical evolution of Bulgari-style design. The exhibition started from the first store in 1884. Speaking of opening in Via Sistina, it continues to the present day. This moving story is told through more than five hundred pieces of jewelry, watches and masterpieces of objets d’ art. Some of these masterpieces are from the Vintage collection of Bulgari, which is the most special historical treasure kept in the company’s archives, and others come from some private collections, so they have never been exhibited before the public.
   In addition to jewellery and watches, the retrospective also provides a series of documents that have never been made public, including sketches and sketches from different eras, as well as photos of famous artists, nobles and celebrities, all of which are the touching beauty of Bulgari jewelry. Followers. There is a passage all about the ‘dolce vita’ era, including an exhibition of the portrait of the heroine in that old film and a quote from the discourse, the first draft design of the jewellery worn on the screen by the most famous actress of that period, And other materials showing that Bulgari and the film industry have worked closely together since the 1940s to create fruitful results.

   However, the real star of this chapter is the jewellery itself, a magnificent piece of work worn by Anna Magnani and Gina Lollobrigida, among others, making its debut here. The other room is all reserved for the legendary Elizabeth Taylor. This is a unique opportunity to admire some of Bulgari’s most outstanding works. Sixteen pieces of jewelry with similar styles are all pricey, and they all contain unique stories behind them. Of particular note is a diamond brooch with an emerald above eighteen grams in the center. This was an engagement gift given to Taylor by Richard Burton in 1962.

Discovering The New World Feel The New Zenith Prestige Columbus Hurricane Watch

Since its birth in 1865, Zenith has continued to launch outstanding creations. Recently, Zenith launched the new distinguished Columbus Hurricane watch.
 This watch not only combines El Primero movement and gravity control system, but also has a third outstanding device to eliminate isochronous errors. This design is equipped with a sesame chain transmission system, which can keep the swing amplitude stable during the power reserve period, and then ensure that the watch transmits power steadily.

A fusion of bold creativity and time-honored craftsmanship
When Georges. When Georges Favre-Jacot gathered all watchmaking under the same roof in 1865, he had thought that the brand he founded would stand up in the tide of time, faithfully upholding his philosophy, A perfect balance between watchmaking tradition and bold creativity. However, for almost 150 years, the brand has continued to carry forward the founder’s pioneering spirit with a rare determination. Zenith has been deeply rooted in its birthplace and continues to explore new breakthroughs in the field of watchmaking. To date, this star-branded brand has enjoyed more than 300 patents, witnessing the excellence of Zenith. From marine astronomical clocks, pocket watches to wristwatches, Zenith has developed and produced more than 600 movements, setting a new milestone in its history. If Zenith displays its exquisite craftsmanship with its complex performance, then the chronograph field is the best use of its craftsmanship. So far, the brand has won 2,333 awards, setting a record unparalleled. Since its inception, the pursuit of high accuracy has been the ultimate goal of brand timepieces. In 1969, Zenith launched the El Primero movement, creating an epoch-making achievement in the field of timekeeping. The El Primero movement is not only the first integrated self-winding chronograph movement in the history, the most important thing is its unparalleled high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, with an accuracy of one tenth of a second. Since then, this legendary movement has continued to evolve and continue in all series.

Three rules
If Christopher. When Christophe Columbus discovered a new world full of possibilities, the Academy Hurricane watch, which is famous for its name, unlocks the triple equation of watch accuracy: time is divided into equal sections by high vibration frequency, and eliminated by the gravity control system. Affects the precise gravity attraction of the travel time, and eliminates the isochronous gap with the sesame chain transmission. In other words, Zenith is not only related to the wearing of the watch (gravity) and the operation of the watch (the watch’s power reserve and isochronism). Over time, the isochronism of the watch may be affected.) Find out countermeasures to related issues, and also give the watch unparalleled high accuracy by improving the swing speed of the balance wheel.

The sesame chain transmission system gives the watch a stable driving force
 During the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, most timepieces were equipped with sesame chains to regulate the power transmitted to the gear set. But with the changing times, only a handful of watch factories can put this device into the square inch space of the watch. With the launch of the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane watch, Zenith has risen to the ranks of the elite. Zenith is currently the only watch factory capable of mastering the gravity control system. In 2011, Zenith was awarded the Grand Prix for Best Complex Watches in Geneva. However, the gravity control system is the research result of the brand lasting five years. Since then, Zenith has invested two years to develop the sesame chain transmission system. The Hurricane watch draws its inspiration from a marine astronomical clock, but how to put the huge structure of a marine astronomical clock into a watch with a diameter of only 45 mm? Zenith achieved this impossible task with its diligent hard work. In the previous centuries, it was necessary to insert the winding key into the hole of the dial to wind the watch, but Zenith was never able to use this mechanism, because the brand aims to make sealed waterproof watches. Therefore, a winding crown is used to solve this problem.
 When the power of a mechanical watch weakens, the vibration swing of its movement will become smaller, which will affect the accuracy of the watch. In contrast, with the sesame chain drive system, the power of the watch will remain stable during the power reserve. The operating principle of the sesame chain transmission system is as follows: the movement of the movement transmits its power to the barrel, after which the spiral structure of the pagoda wheel will offset the gradual change in power generated by the barrel. The spiral structure of the pagoda wheel is specially designed for clockwork and is the result of complex calculations. In the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane watch, the transmission system between the barrel and the pagoda wheel consists of 585 parts of a sesame chain and is 18 cm long. The structure of the sesame chain is very complex, consisting of alternating double-links and intermediate links. The size of the rivets has been carefully calculated to reduce the impact of dynamic changes on the movement. The manufacture and operation of sesame chain requires meticulous care and ingenious craftsmanship. Once the assembly is completed, its tensile strength can reach more than 3 kg.

For the duration of the power reserve, the barrel will transmit power to the pagoda wheel through the surrounding sesame chain. The pagoda wheel can transmit its stable power to the gear set by adjusting the tension, and the gear set transmits the power to the silicon escape gear in the gyroscope frame. It takes more than 50 hours (power reserve time) for the sesame chain to wind around the barrel, while the lever winding shows the beauty of exciting craftsmanship. Within seconds of winding, the pagoda wheel and the barrel are rotated in opposite directions, so that the sesame chain can be re-wound on the pagoda wheel, thereby winding the mainspring.
 The shape of the pagoda wheel of the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane watch was carefully designed by Zenith watchmakers to provide maximum power to the barrel. The teeth design of the pagoda wheel has a conical structure, and its size has been carefully calculated. The theoretical power and power reserve time are taken as the reference. The structure of the pagoda wheel has seven layers, and the shape of each layer is the result of precise calculations. Without the cooperation of all the processes in the Zenith watch factory, especially the movement part and the complex assembly process, the pagoda wheel would not be born. The close cooperation between different professions is another winning ace of the brand. By bringing together all the crafts related to watchmaking under the same roof, the brand can achieve extraordinary achievements.

Gravity Control System: Challenging the Law of Gravity
 In addition to offsetting the isochronous gap with the sesame chain drive system, the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane watch can eliminate another factor that affects the mechanical movement of the watch-gravity. Keeping the adjustment device in a horizontal position allows the balance wheel to have the best swing amplitude, thus bringing the best travel time accuracy. Zenith developed a gravity control system based on this principle and applied for a patent for this revolutionary innovation. The gravity control system keeps the adjustment and escapement in a horizontal position forever. This invention not only shows the brand’s bold ideas, but also pays tribute to the brand’s history. It was inspired by the nautical astronomical clock that Zenith produced in the past.
 The power control system adopts the principle of the cardan-type suspension device of the legendary marine instrument. This type of suspension device was introduced in the sixteenth century with a universal hinge bracket, which is installed on the same shaft and used on a marine compass to keep it It is in a horizontal position and rotated in a horizontal direction, which can maintain balance even when the ship is bumpy. Later, pocket watches came out, because the cardan-type suspension device was as large as 50 mm in diameter and was not suitable for putting in a pocket, so the watchmaker at that time had to find another way, so the tourbillon device was born. Since the pocket watch is in a vertical position in the pocket, the left and right swing of the chain shaft on the tourbillon device can correct the travel time error caused by the gravity of the pocket watch parts.
 Today, the traditional tourbillon device equipped with the watch can balance the position deviation on the four vertical axes and adjust the watch’s accuracy by the same principle. In addition, the tilting tourbillon and multi-axis tourbillon, although they stay in the horizontal position for a short time, and the adjustment error is the sum of the multiple offsets caused by many wrist movements, but its operating principle and traditional tourbillon Similar, mainly to offset the errors caused by gravity. The gravity control system is equipped with a self-adjusting gyroscope mechanism. This design can keep the escapement in a horizontal position forever, no matter how the wrist swings. It is a masterpiece evolved from the marine astronomical clock.

A treasure of outstanding machinery
 Zenith combines bold creativity, unique design and pleasing three qualities. With this in mind, Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane watches not only create outstanding achievements never before seen in the field of precision, but also provide viewers with endless visual enjoyment. Under the clear view of sapphire crystal glass, the sesame chain transmission system embodies ingenious mechanical technology, showing how the sesame chain rotates around the barrel and the pagoda wheel. The gyro frame at 6 o’clock is made up of 173 parts. It is a veritable watchmaking gem, and it is dazzling with its light and sharp rotation. The arched structure of the protective cover perfectly complements the beauty of the frame and echoes the hour-cut skeleton dial at 12 o’clock.
 Both the small gold seconds and the power reserve display are decorated with hand-engraved ‘guilloche’ patterns, both of which are round and balanced. Viewed from the side, under the sapphire crystal glass, a world map decorated with laser engravings is displayed on the bottom of the gyroscope, paying high respects to Columbus’s adventurous spirit. What better symbol of the spirit of this watch than the limited edition of 25 pieces?

Reminiscing The Long History Of Watchmaking

On September 30, 2016, the famous Swiss watch brand OMEGA opened the ‘Her Time’ Women’s Watch Centennial Exhibition at the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition to the beautiful and elegant antique timepieces in the history of Omega ladies watches, the exhibition also displayed some historical posters, leading visitors to experience Omega’s commitment and long-term contribution to ladies watches for more than 100 years.

   The ‘Her Time’ exhibition hall is dominated by pure and elegant white and brilliant warm gold. The hall is filled with Omega watch exhibits of various periods and display drawers for exploration and discovery.

Old fashioned posters tell the story of Omega

   Looking back on more than a century, Omega has always been committed to making bright and elegant ladies’ watches, perfectly interpreting the beautiful appearance and the precise timing of the movement in each Omega watch. From the early Lépine pocket watches to the launch of Omega’s highly anticipated women’s constellation series to the Observatory’s small seconds watch this year, the exhibition showcased many representative timepieces.

   Omega Ladies’ Watch, launched in 1906, this watch is one of the earliest Omega watches produced, equipped with ivory fusion dial, gold minute scale and complicated Louis XV hands. Its crown is located at 12 o’clock and was specially designed for women who were driving cars at the time. It was worn on the inside of the wrist for easy reading of time. This was extremely pioneering at the time in the watchmaking industry, reflecting Omega’s concern and advocacy for equal rights of women.

   Omega Art Nouveau Lépine pocket watch released in 1910. This charming lady’s Lépine pocket watch features Parisian Arabic numerals and pear-shaped hands on the dial. The back is covered with blue translucent enamel and decorated with 18K white gold. Pattern with 17 diamonds on it.

   A 1915 ladies’ watch with a black gold inlaid checkerboard case and an original adjustable bracelet, even today it still looks avant-garde.

   Omega’s ‘Medicus’ ladies’ watches are not only the earliest watches in the world that used a chain pin to secure the strap. It is designed for busy nurses and doctors so that they can use the central second hand to read the pulse more accurately when measuring pulses, while earlier watches did not have a central second hand. This watch is also the first women’s junior watch with a central second hand in the brand’s history.

   The Omega ‘FLOWERS’ concealed jewellery watch launched in 1955 is undoubtedly a women’s favorite. This unique model is crafted in 18K gold and is set with 38 brilliant-cut diamonds and 17 fancy diamonds. Designed by Geneva-based design master Jean Hawke, the rare appearance makes it the base of the International Watch and Jewellery Show in Basel. Dazzling star.

   The ‘three-piece suit’ Omega ‘Structura’ that fascinates women is the winning work of the Baden-Baden Golden Rose Award in 1978, designed by Luigi Vignando. Crafted in 18K yellow gold, set with brilliant-cut diamonds and curved black onyx. The watch was equipped with Cal.1350 quartz movement, which was the smallest movement in the world at that time. Like the necklace on the pendant, the watch is entirely hinged from the chain links, giving the entire set a soft and elegant line. The ring features a polyhedron with two V-shaped settings and a delicate polished thread. The set contains 130 onyx and 348 brilliant-cut diamonds (7.77 carats).

   Introduced in 1982, the Constellation ‘Manhattan’ is inspired by the classic design of the legendary Constellation. After technical improvements and aesthetic upgrades, the watch uses four fixed claw designs to secure the sapphire crystal and seal to the case, ensuring its waterproof performance. The watch uses a barrel-shaped case and a round dial, and a half-moon design at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock is used to link the strap, which has also become one of the most classic design elements of the Constellation series.

   Of course, in this exhibition, the most attractive thing is the constellation series Zhizhen Observatory’s small second lady’s watch that Omega just launched in October. The new 27mm models use a white mother-of-pearl dial and 10 diamond hour markers Set on 18K gold arched brackets. There are a total of eight models to choose from, all of which have been certified by the Astronomical Observatory, equipped with Omega 8704 or 8705 coaxial to the Astronomical Observatory movement. The accuracy of the watch is 50% higher than that of ordinary astronomical watches, and its antimagnetic performance reaches 15,000 Gauss, which is far ahead of the industry level. This watch is also the first Omega women’s watch to receive the Swiss Official Observatory and the Observatory Dual Certification.
   In the exhibition hall, you can feel Omega’s enthusiasm for the manufacture of women’s watches. Exhibits and posters vividly depict the pioneering spirit of OMEGA’s respect for women’s equal status and the right to choose a free life in different times. Whether it is enjoying the elegance of high-level social life, experiencing the chicness of sports, or the professional attitude of pursuing a professional career, OMEGA women’s watches can always accurately capture the noble, elegant and independent and confident women. The ‘Her Time’ Ladies Watch Centennial Exhibition ends on October 30, 2016. Friends who are interested in the Swiss women’s watch manufacturing process and even the world’s women’s watch manufacturing process can come to the scene to get a deeper understanding of Omega’s unique women’s watch manufacturing concept and outstanding heritage.

Starting From The Basics Movement Basic Parts Of Mechanical Watches

We have already understood the basic structure of the movement above. In this article, we will focus on popularizing the basic parts and functions in each mechanism. Due to the large number of movement parts, we only choose the most important ones here. . First, attach a basic comparison chart of the movement parts for your reference. It is not very clear what to find on the Internet. The styles of different movement parts will be slightly different.

 Motive system:

   The main part of the original drive system is the clockwork. The clockwork is loaded into the clockwork box. The composition of the clockwork box includes: clockwork, clockwork shaft, clockwork box and clockwork box. The mainspring is an elastic element that generates torque when it is tightened to power the movement of the watch.

Sealed barrel

   The power reserve that a watch can provide depends on the number of working cycles of the mainspring. The more working cycles, the longer the watch’s power reserve may be. But it does not mean that the longer the length of the mainspring, the better, because the maximum power reserve can only be provided when the area of ​​the mainspring coiled in the barrel is equal to the fully relaxed area. Therefore, when sufficient output torque is ensured, it is good to make the mainspring thinner, and it can also reduce the mainspring torque drop.
   When the original barrel was repaired, the barrel had to be opened to take out the mainspring, cleaned and refueled. Many watches now use self-lubricating springs in the barrel, without having to open them. In addition, the seal between the barrel cover and the mainspring cover is forcibly opened, which may cause the barrel to deform or seal tightly when it is re-capped.
 Drive train:
   The mainspring barrel wheel transmits power to the second wheel, and then transmits it to the escapement via three and four wheels. We mentioned earlier that the transmission gear train can be divided into two types. The movement we disassembled is an off-center transmission form. The advantage of this form is that the space utilization of the plane and the axial direction is relatively high. The overall performance of the core provides favorable conditions.

Second, third and fourth rounds

   The second wheel (center wheel) is the main identification point for deciding the center-center drive or the off-center drive. The center-driven two wheels are used to carry the display system, and fit together with the sub-wheels through a friction fit relationship. The off-center second wheel exists only to transmit the power from the prime mover system, and has no direct relationship with the display system.
   The three wheels are connected to the second wheel. When receiving power, the gear ratio of the gear train and the direction of rotation of the gear train are changed, so it is also called passing wheels.
   The four-wheel wheel is also called the second wheel. This wheel is connected to the escapement and its rotation speed is controlled to rotate at a speed of one revolution per minute. The top of the four wheels can be equipped with a second hand (large or small three seconds).

 Escapement:

   The escapement mechanism includes an escape wheel and a fork. The escape wheel drives the fork to escape one by one to complete the actions of locking, transmitting and releasing. The ‘tick’ sound of the mechanical watch also comes from this. When the escapement fork’s teeth are attached to the pallet fork, it will make a ‘tick’ sound. Then, as the balance wheel oscillates, the escapement wheel will continue to rotate, and the second pallet fork will be snapped with a ‘answer’.

Escape wheel and fork
   The escapement mechanism periodically transmits the energy provided by the prime mover system to the balance spring system to maintain the system’s vibration without attenuation. The escapement mechanism transmits the number of vibrations of the balance spring system to the indicating device for the purpose of measuring time. Therefore, the quality of the escapement will directly affect the accuracy of the mechanical watch.
 Vibration system:

 Balance spring system

   The balance spring system, which also serves as a timing reference, includes a balance component, a balance component and a balance plate assembly. The balance wheel and hairspring components are very easy to recognize. The balance plate assembly is a little more complicated. It consists of a balance plate, a shock absorber assembly, a fast and slow needle part and an outer pile ring part.
   The balance spring structure is also divided into two types: no card and card. One type is a spring type structure with card degree. This structure changes the effective length of the hairspring by adjusting the position of the fast and slow to achieve the purpose of changing the vibration cycle. The other type is a spring type structure without card degree. The uniformly distributed screws can be moved in and out, or the position of the rotatable weight placed can be adjusted, and the balance radius can be changed to achieve the purpose of changing the vibration cycle. Our movement here uses a card spring structure.
Display system:
   For the display system integrated into the active drive train, the most important are the hour wheel, minute wheel and second wheel, as well as the span wheel responsible for converting the rotation speed.

Three-needle movement display

   The display mechanism of the junior hand, the hour, minute and second wheels are coaxially set at the center of the movement, and the hour, minute and second hands are installed. The hour hand works at a speed of one revolution every 12 hours; the minute hand works at a speed of one revolution per hour; the second hand works at a speed of one revolution per minute. The second wheel connected to it is directly controlled by the speed control system to control its rotation speed. Therefore, the second is the timing basis of the mechanical watch, which directly affects the accuracy of the mechanical watch. The span wheel is composed of a span wheel plate and a span gear shaft, and its function is to make the minute wheel that rotates once a hour rotates through a gear ratio to change the time wheel that rotates once every 12 hours.
Winding Needle System:
   There are many parts of the winding needle. We have mentioned before. Manual winding generally consists of the crown, the spindle, the vertical wheel, the clutch wheel, the clutch lever, the clutch lever spring, the pull lever, the pressure spring, the needle wheel, the span wheel, It consists of wheels, split wheels, large steel wheels, small steel wheels, detents, detent springs, etc. The automatic winding is composed of a heavy hammer, a heavy hammer support, an eccentric shaft, a ball, an automatic rocker, a ratchet, a pawl, and an automatic upper splint.

Clutch and vertical wheels

   When winding, the vertical wheel and the clutch wheel are in an engaged state. When the crown is turned, the clutch wheel drives the vertical wheel, and the vertical wheel passes the small steel wheel and the large steel wheel to wind the winding shaft tightly. The pawl prevents the large steel wheel from reversing. When the needle is moved, the crown is pulled out, the pull lever rotates on the pull lever and pushes the clutch lever to disengage the clutch wheel from the vertical wheel and engage the needle wheel. At this time, turning the crown will move the hand wheel to drive the hour and minute wheels through the span wheel to achieve the purpose of correcting the hour and minute hands.

   There are many parts of the display system and the winding needle system as the auxiliary drive train. In contrast, the active drive train is easy to identify and remember. Finally, we attach a small three-handed work chart of the active drive train. The difference lies in controlling the position of the four wheels of the second hand, which is convenient for everyone to compare and remember.
