    Blancpain has been a leader in supporting the Primitive Ocean Initiative and was the first organization to sponsor it. This unwavering support has now entered its fourth year. With the help of Blancpain, the Primitive Ocean Plan has now grown into a world leader in marine protection.

    Bringing together the strengths of the National Geographic Society, Blancpain was the first important partner of the Primitive Ocean Initiative. Combining exploration, research, economic analysis and communications, the program has helped protect more than 400,000 square kilometers in the United States, Chile, Gabon, Kiribati, and Costa Rica. Therefore, the announcement of the expansion of the project also proves that this protection mode is very successful, and Blancpain is very honored to see more and more important partners gradually join this project. These partners include: Waititt Foundation, Prince Albert II of Monaco, Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, Jynwel Foundation, LeonaM. And HarryB. Charitable Trust, Davidoff Mystery Water, Lindblad Expeditions, DynamicPlanet, former Costa Rican President José María Figueres of CostaRica, and many other individual donors.

    In accordance with commitments announced during the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York, the National Geographic Society’s Primitive Ocean Initiative will work with governments around the world in the next five years, expanding the world’s 20 Marine area. Commercial fishing and mining will be banned in these marine protected areas, much like land-based conservation of biodiversity through national parks. Local governments, local partners, and influential business leaders will fulfill this commitment. If achieved, this plan will help all members of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity to effectively protect 10% of the world’s oceans by 2020.

    Athens Watch ‘drilling Oil Well’ Single Question Timepiece Gold Flash (Hourstriker Oil Pump)

    Hourstriker Oil Pump, the latest addition to the precious and unique watch series of Athens Watch, pays tribute to the industry. The black enamel surface is one of the highlights of the watch, decorated with hand-carved gold, depicting the size of the oil field and the rhythmic excavation of oil wells to supply oil to the world.
       The 18K rose gold and platinum models are limited to 18 pieces each. The ‘Drilling Well’ single-question timepiece presents an attractive force. The dial pattern is vivid and attractive, and the details depicted are very accurate, as if you are in it and completely surrounded by the scene.
       The watch itself is more realistic in its workmanship. The oil pump arm that drills the oil well is a movable device. It will move up and down with the sound of the time signal. When the hammer hits the string, the drilling well will move in synchronization. Although the watch is a very complicated device, the operation of the ‘Drilling Well’ single-question stopwatch is simple. Simply press the on / off button lightly, the self-buzzer can be started or stopped according to your preference. When the hour hand points to the hourglass on the left, the self-timer function will stop. Conversely, if the pointer points to a small dot, the self-timer will start. Athens Watch is one of the early renaissances of the manufacturer of the watch technology, and is still the world’s few watchmaking brands that use active figures on the dial to make the watch.
       The watch uses the same master enamel technology that is unique to Athenian watches, an art that is highly valued by watchmakers and collectors. In addition, when Athens Watch produced ‘Drilling Oil Well’, it also added extremely difficult hand-carving skills.
       First, the sculpting expert will make the shape of a gold medal by hand, determine the thickness of each part and carve out a lifelike pattern. The enamel craftsman then fills the surface with black enamel. This method is to sculpt some grooves on the thick metal surface, fill it with moist enamel solution, and then bake it at high temperature until the enamel is melted. After the enamel surface cools down, remove excess enamel with a human hand and polish it to make the surface shine. After that, the gold medal will be returned to the carving expert for final modification. After these multiple and complicated processes, drilling wells, pipelines, buildings and landscapes came to life.
       Athens Watch ‘Drilling Well’ single-minded timepiece represents the ultimate craftsmanship of top-level watchmaking, combining ancient tradition and the most advanced watchmaking technology to create a watch that pays tribute to the business world stage.

    Vacheron Constantin Vacheron Constantin Reproduces The Manual Decoration Techniques, Carving Traditional Chinese Cultural Elements In The Traditionnelle Series

    Vacheron Constantin Vacheron Constantin has always been good at integrating traditional arts and crafts, such as hand-carving, gem setting, enamel painting and hand-engraved carving, into watch design, which has created many watches that can be called artworks. In 2019, Vacheron Constantin continued to use these technologies to release the new Traditionnelle series tourbillon tourbillon ‘Pearl of the Dragon’ watch.

    Traditionnelle inherits the series tourbillon ‘Xianglong Yuzhu’ watch, showing the brand’s exquisite handcrafting and watchmaking technical achievements, and sending beautiful meanings to the square of the wrist

    The watch uses a variety of arts and crafts, striving to achieve a shocking aesthetic effect.

The face plate is full of graphic decoration created by hand-machine carving and carving, showing the brand’s masterpieces in the field of decorative arts. After making the faceplate, the hand sculptor meticulously carved out the golden outlines of the dragon and fireball, showing the stunning picture of the pattern in the extremely thin thickness of 0.4 mm.
    In order to accurately display the pattern between the square inch, the master craftsman needs to make special engraving tools to operate the relief engraving process, which is an ancient hand-carving technique. The master craftsman sculpts the metal with fine sculpting needles, and uses different embossing techniques to create a matte and polished effect, so that each scale shows a different look and feel under the changing light. The hand-sculpture master also uses the embossed engraving process to carve the outlines of auspicious dragons and fire beads on the face plate, adding layering and light and shadow effects to the ornamentation.

    Patek Philippe Ref.5180/1 Ultra-thin Hollow-out Table

    The word ‘play’ seems to be separate, but in the authentic Beijing dialect, you need a standard Erhua. Coincidentally, hollowing out seems simple, it seems that as long as you pay for it, in fact it is like having a child’s voice, which has its own secret.
        The first is naturally the brand. Whether it is a pen or a watch, because it has already evolved into a luxury, the brand value has to be put first and taken into account first. In fact, this is also recognized by many players. In today’s mixed luxury market, an important added value brought by brands is to guarantee the quality of their products. Such as Vacheron Constantin’s Cal.1120 is a classic of hollowed-out movements, and the hollowed-out models with perpetual calendar components added to Cal.1120 are even more collectible. Vacheron Constantin is still launching new hollow-out watches. In addition, Cartier’s Santos 100 cutout series launched at this year’s SIHH exhibition is another example of cutout. Cartier evolved hollowing from a remodeled art to a design art. He redesigned the movement board circuit into 12 Roman characters as a time scale indicator on the dial. In this way, this Cal.9611 MC is more than just a skeletonized version of a traditionally modified version.
        The same is true for fountain pens. Many of Montblanc’s art patron series have a lot of hollow sculptures. If the ‘Queen Semela’ of 1996 is the representative of the art patron series of hollow sculptures, then 10 years later, this Bailangfeng diamond hollow pen introduced to celebrate the centennial ceremony can be described as a brilliant representative. The master craftsman inlaid 1277 white diamonds and 123 blue diamonds on the hollow pen barrel with exquisite skills, showing the shape of Bailang Peak, and the mountain peaks, white snow and blue glaciers. The blue transparent pen is just like the blue sky, highlighting the towering diamond snow mountain.
        Of course, the choice of brand is only the first step of the gameplay, and the advantage in quantity is really the essence of collection. The Cal.240 skeleton movement of Jun Fang Patek Philippe is no longer new because the masters have passed away. For this reason, rivers and lakes are really hard to find. As a result, the skeleton watch equipped with this movement has been auctioned for more than 300,000 US dollars in 2003. God knows what it would cost this year! The Cal.177 oval manual winding movement, which is also Patek Philippe, is also very expensive. The reason is simple. The hollowed out Cal.177, which has a larger carving area, is rarer in quantity than Cal.240.
        In addition, even though Montblanc’s art patron series is limited to 4810 pieces worldwide. But there are more rare pursuits-such as Pelikan’s Antonio series launched in 2002. It is not easy to get a limit for Pelikan, but if it does, it must be the best. This hollow carved pen, limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide, is hard to find even at auction. Another example is Caran d ‘Ache, a Swiss brand specially produced to commemorate the founding of Switzerland. The 1291 series is limited to 1291 pieces worldwide. It even carved the entire Swiss village on 925 silver and attached it to the pen. From the hut to the coniferous pines to the white snow, how can the word ‘beauty’ be so good?
        Hollowing allows a man to peek into bits and pieces that could not be seen, but properly retains the frame and blocks vision. Hollowing out makes men feel as if they are in front of them and seems to be at their fingertips, but this is not the case. Openwork-man-love. Play is hollow.

This experience is always exciting and challenging.

    Marc Ferrero

    Case side

    Case-back design

    Ocean Chronograph Chronograph ‘darwin Adventure’ Special Edition Real Shot

    The special edition of Darwin’s Adventure in Ocean Chronograph Chronograph is a classic in the history of the development of IWC’s modern and innovative diver’s watch. This is the first time the brand has used bronze to make a case, as bronze was commonly used in shipbuilding during the Darwin era. Darwin collected a wealth of valuable information during his Galapagos Islands adventure, laying the foundation for his theory of species origin. And this sporty ocean chronograph watch is a tribute to this great natural scientist.

       October 1835. After four years of voyages around the world, the British research ship HMS Berger anchored in front of the Galapagos Islands, 1,000 kilometers from the South American continent. Young scientific researcher Darwin wrote down in the travel log ‘a group of extremely special finch’: ‘The most amazing thing is that different species can be classified into different species by the size of their beaks. (People) can imagine At first, there were few birds on the island, so many varieties evolved from one species according to different survival needs. ‘Then he turned to the study of other animals. At that time, Darwin had not expected that these observations would later lead to a great discovery that fundamentally shaken the foundations of the natural sciences of the time: the world was not static, but was constantly evolving. Darwin’s evolutionary theory of species variation and origin is derived from his research in the Galapagos Islands. In commemoration of this historic Galapagos scientific expedition, IWC launched a remarkable diver’s watch in 2014-the special edition of the Darwin Adventure ‘Ocean Chronograph (model IW379503) ).

       The Darwin Special Edition is not only unique in the new 2014 Marine Timepiece Collection, it is also the first of its kind for IWC. This is the first time the brand has used bronze as a case material. Bronze is a very traditional metal material. The history of human use of bronze can be traced back to more than 5,000 years ago. The use of bronze for the case is inspired by Darwin’s famous research ship HMS Berger-at that time there was no stainless steel. Bronze became the first choice for shipbuilding materials due to its excellent corrosion resistance. Clocks, boat accessories and marine instruments. Following Darwin’s creed that ‘only change is constant’, bronze will be stained with a faint green light and the color will continue to deepen with the passage of time. This is what gives this timepiece a full personality, Unique temperament.

       Pure copper is softer, and the high-tech bronze used by IWC is a copper-aluminum alloy, which is rugged and hard, has high resistance to abrasion, and is stable in chemical properties. In addition to the case and the innovative inner and outer rotating bezel, this warm bronze hue also appears as a luminous color on the hands, hour markers and the clock ring of the rotating inner ring. The crown and buttons are coated with black matte rubber, which not only creates a strong contrast in color, but also makes the buttons easier to operate. In addition, the strap equipped with the latest patented IWC bracelet quick-change system is also made of black rubber.

       All models in the new generation of marine timepieces are equipped with the innovative inner and outer rotating bezels equipped with the IWC SafeDive system, and the special edition of the Darwin Adventure Journey is no exception. If you need to mark the dive start time or other time, you can turn the outer ring to set the time in minutes until the triangle mark on the inner ring points to the minute hand, and you can hear the meshing sound when you rotate. During the dive, you can read the time you have dived on the inner scale. The safety diving system ensures that the inner ring can only be turned counterclockwise.

       In this way, even a misadjustment will only prolong, without shortening the displayed dive time, thus ensuring sufficient oxygen to float. The newly developed clutch system is responsible for transmitting the rotation of the bezel to the inside of the case. This ingenious device at the ‘9 o’clock’ position, covered with a cover, is a typical feature of the new generation of marine timepieces.

       The ‘Engine Room’ of the special edition of the Ocean Chronograph ‘Darwin Adventure’ is equipped with the IWC-manufactured 89365 self-made movement. Shock, suitable for wearing in various harsh environments. The central chronograph hand shows a chronograph record accurate to the second, while the small dial at ’12 o’clock’ shows the measured minutes with the hands. The watch also has a flyback function. The chronograph hands return to the zero position when the zero reset button is pressed, and a new timekeeping can be started immediately. The small seconds at 6 o’clock continues to indicate that the watch is operating normally. During synchronization, the small second hand can be stopped at any time as needed. The bottom of the watch is engraved with a lifelike Darwin head, and it is his evolution that has changed the way of thinking of human beings forever. 30 bar water resistance makes this special edition watch suitable for all kinds of modern adventure activities above and below water.
