Jaeger-LeCoultre and Polo
   Being on the polo field is like being in a watchmaking workshop. Athletes and watchmakers have the same goal, which is to strive for excellence: to write history in an elegant manner in the torrent of time, and to complete challenges with precise actions. Since the launch of the Reverso in 1931, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been inextricably linked to polo. Because of the intensity and danger of polo, British officers in India at the time often damaged their watches during polo matches. To this end, Jaeger-LeCoultre specially designed this Reverso series watch with a reversible case.
   For a long time, Jaeger-LeCoultre has actively supported polo sports through different cooperation methods, such as the Palermo Polo Open in Argentina and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup in the UK. Jaeger-LeCoultre Brand Ambassadors Eduardo Novillo Astrada, Clare Mountbatten (Marchioness of Milford Haven), and Luke Townsend (Luke Tomlinson) On the polo courts around the world, show the heart of enthusiasm with superb ball skills.

He Secretly Moved Top-secret Information For 6 Months, And History Proved His Vision

Remember that a few years ago, the back-end readers often asked questions like ‘Is the daily error X seconds of the XX watch normal?’ Now it has gradually become ‘Which watch in my budget do you think looks the best?’ . From technology flow to beauty, this is a big trend, but it can also be said that it is nothing more than returning to intuition-after all, strictly speaking, the meaning of clocks has to be separated from the functional requirements after the completion of the transition But this does not mean that technology is meaningless. Many times it is because for most people, technology is too boring and difficult to understand, but the stories behind it often make people remember. Just counting, the 50th anniversary of Zenith’s famous El Primero movement. In this age of supremacy, as the first integrated automatic winding column-wheel chronograph movement in history, It has simply survived difficult times in the history of watchmaking that are enough to subvert beliefs. So it’s hard to say that the rabbit is outside the face today and tells a story about precision. Someone who knows a little about clocks will know the place of El Primero movement in the history of watchmaking, but most beginners don’t know where it is. Simply put, the El Primero movement has been in production since 1969, and it is still the world’s leading mass-produced movement-the timing can be measured to 1 / 10th of a second. These are the two keywords of the most classic 3019 PHC movement, one is precision, and the other is mass production-that is to say, it is not difficult to show off technology, but you have to be stable at the same time, which is not easy. Regarding technology, the rabbit explained later, first telling the story that this movement has been preserved to this day. It is said that Zenith wanted to push its first automatic chronograph (started in 1962) in 1965 to celebrate the century of the brand. However, the research and development work obviously exceeded the plan, postponed for one year after another, and finally completed in 1969. This movement was a complete all-in-one chronograph movement from the beginning, not modular. Although the project took a long time, it turned out to be the most durable and easy-to-use chronograph movement. Originally, this was worth celebrating, and it could sweep the industry and lead the trend. However, the market situation is changing, and although the quartz crisis has proven to be a short-lived trend, many mechanical watch manufacturers have indeed collapsed, and Zenith also encountered great challenges. In 1971, an American company named Zenith Radio Corporation (ZRC) bought the Zenith brand (even the name is the same, it is doomed). In 1975, Americans believed that mechanical movements had no future, and quartz movements were the right path. They required that all relevant production materials and molds for mechanical movements be disposed of, including technical drawings for research and development or production. . At this time, an important figure appeared. He was the watchmaker Charles Vermot. It is said that he initially argued reasonably and hoped that the headquarters could reconsider, but after receiving no reply, he took over the destruction task and actually made his own choice. Charles Vermot Charles began to move in ants, and secretly hid the materials and molds related to the movement production. He slowly moved these things to the attic on the top floor of the workshop. In order not to be found, he Hidden in secret, he also raised a wall and escaped everyone’s eyes. It took him about six months to complete the task, and he kept his secrets very well-until 1984, even his wife and children didn’t know about it. At the recent 50th anniversary celebration dinner in Shanghai, Julien Tornare, Zenith Global President, also told us an interesting detail. He had dinner with Charles’ son and heard him tell the story of his dad. The son said that his dad was very busy during the 6 months, because he often was very late in carrying and finishing, and even his mother was curious at one time (presumably a woman’s keen intuition?), And asked, ‘You know your dad What have you been doing lately? ‘The ZRC retired in 1978 and Zenith returned to the hands of the Swiss. In 1984, the new owner said, why don’t we restore the previous technology? So an old watch factory employee called Charles and told him the good news. He immediately returned to the watch factory, knocked open the wall, and fully displayed his efforts, including the unassembled Calibre 3019 PHC movement. At this moment, everyone suddenly realized. Although Charles’ behavior was illegal, he did save Zenith, and it would take a lot of money and energy to reproduce El Primero. To commemorate Charles’s efforts, Zenith has maintained the original appearance of the loft even if the entire factory has been refurbished-that corner, which records our dedication to technology and respect for innovation. After that, the El Primero movement was put into production again. At that time, many well-known watchmaking brands launched this movement and launched mechanical watches again (used by Daytona). The story is over, but rabbits need to talk briefly about technology. In the 1960s, El Primero’s vibration frequency reached 36,000 times, which is amazing, and can be measured to an accuracy of 1/10 seconds (to help you simply calculate, 36,000 revolutions per hour, divided by 60 minutes and then divided by 60 seconds, the answer It is 10, which means that the second hand can jump 10 times per second), the most effective is the timing of the game. For the movement, the higher the frequency, the faster the wear and tear, so accuracy is not difficult, and the difficulty is stability. In order to achieve mass production, Zenith developed new lubricants and increased its power reserve to 50 hours. So the role of this movement really appeared-accurate, not easy to break. In 2017, Zenith even improved the timing accuracy to 1 / 100th of a second and launched the DEFY series El Primero 21 watch, which has multiple styles. Of course, the accuracy of 1/100 is a self-challenge. Last year’s rainbow circle was also stunning. This year is the 50th anniversary of the legendary movement. The two sets of Zenith have also left me a deep memory. The first is the EL PRIMERO REVIVAL limited edition watch that Basel sees. There are three models: white gold, rose gold and gold. Materials, each limited to 50 pieces, can be purchased separately. In fact, what surprised me the most is that it has a warranty of 50 years (it can be passed on for generations). As a reproduction of the original 1969 El Primero (laser scan of the original museum watch to restore each component), the 38 mm stainless steel case is very friendly, and it also has a magnifying curved mirror, a three-color timer, and a speedometer. Scales, hands and time scales are original features. And the second set, I also saw the real body on the day of the dinner. El Primero’s 50th Anniversary Gift Box, a total of 3 pieces, is also limited to 50 sets. The significance of this set is more like putting the historical research and development process into a box. The first is a reproduction of the 1969 El Primero chronograph, a 38 mm steel model with a chronograph accurate to 1 / 10th of a second. The second engraved version is the flagship series, with a 42mm stainless steel case and a carbon black ceramic bezel. It uses a modified El Primero 3600 movement, which is also accurate to 1 / 10th of a second, but the power reserve is increased to 60 hours. The third was the DEFY El Primero 21 chronograph, with a 44mm titanium case, which was accurate to 1 / 100th of a second. It is very interesting that there is still a space in the set box, which is said to be reserved for the future 1/1000 second chronograph. This is obviously a ambition. On a closer look, this movement has undergone at least 2 different historical stages. First of all, the advent of quartz movements has led many people to put practicality first, while ignoring the significance of mechanical watches as luxury products. Now comes the second question-which of the watch value and technology is more important? I have always believed that the value of the face must be the first element that attracts us. Without appearance, consumers will not have the patience to listen to your analysis of the heart. People and things are the same. But once the face value pass, the technical ability (must be related to the brand status) is an important factor to promote the final choice. In a few years ago, I might come up with the so-called technical complex, historical status and other empty things. But as a complete consumer today, I always believe that strength is more worthy of dependence than feelings. Just like I believe Charles Vermot must be a skilled craftsman, what made him make such a bold decision was the vision behind his strength. The gossip rabbit is only original, welcome to repost!
