Longines 24-hour Watch Has A Long-lasting Aesthetic Appeal

In the 1950s, Longines supplied watches for Swissair, Swissair. These timepieces have a unique 24-hour dial. Aircraft navigators at the time had to determine the plane’s location and make a flight plan, and this technical feature of the watch fulfilled these needs.
    Longines Swiss Airlines navigator watch was specially created for Swiss National Airlines in the early 1950s. Equipped with a Longines 37.9N movement and a central seconds hand, which was designed in the 1940s and used in Longines specially made for pilots. The stainless steel case back is engraved with the Swissair brand logo. Longines archives show that this is one of the 70 limited edition watches produced exclusively for Swiss National Airlines between 1953 and 1956.
    In 2009, Harry Hofmann, a retired Swissair pilot, visited the Longines Museum. He took this opportunity to give a Longines watch he had worn while working at SWISS to Longines. This watch with a 24-hour dial is one of a series of timepieces made by Longines in the 1950s specifically for SWISS aircraft pilots.
    In the aviation industry in the mid-twentieth century, one of the duties of aircraft navigators was to determine the location of aircraft and develop flight plans. Therefore, a reliable watch becomes a must-have for pilots. Airplanes need to travel through different time zones on the way back and forth, and sometimes the sun cannot be seen, so the sun cannot be used as a reference point, so an instrument is needed to accurately display the time of day. With a 24-hour dial, the pilot overcomes this problem.
    The Longines 24-hour watch has a transparent case back. Open the cover of the case back and you can see the delicate movement of the movement. The inside of the back cover of the watch is engraved with the ‘Reprint of Longines Navigation Watch for SWISS Navigator from 1953-1956’ and the watch number.
    Harry Huffman served as the navigator for SWISS, flying DC-4s, DC-6s, DC-7s, DC-8s and Coronados until 1974. Longines was specially produced for Swiss National Airlines in the early 1950s. The watch is engraved with the number 8233331 and equipped with a Longines 37.9N movement and a central seconds hand. This was in the 1940s. It was designed and used in Longines specially made for pilots. The stainless steel case back of Mr. Huffman is engraved with the Swissair brand logo. Longines archives show that this is one of the 70 limited edition watches produced exclusively for Swiss National Airlines between 1953 and 1956. These watches are technically in the same vein as Longines pilot watches-they are Longines Whistles seconds hand-set watches produced in 1927 and Longines timepieces from 1932. As a professional Swiss watch company, Longines chose to re-launch this watch because of its historical significance and excellent functions, and also because of the enduring aesthetic appeal of this work, this watch was named Longines. 24-hour watch.

The First Lange Watch With A Minute Repeater

Among the top timepieces, ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER is a masterpiece of technology: this ingeniously designed watch combines mechanical skipping display and decimal minute repeater for the first time. ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER is Lange’s first timepiece, very tense.

   Whenever the button touches the beeping device, the watch will display the current digital time in sequence, and the sound will be emitted in sequence. Every hour the dial time passes, a low tone sounds, while a double tone and a high tone represent every ten minutes and every minute, respectively. The engineers used the basic principle of the word-jumping device when developing the beep function of ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER. The time of the watch is not displayed by hands, but by means of an hour circle and two minute dials. The three worm gears connected to these mechanical display elements will extract the timekeeping numbers corresponding to the hours, ten minutes and minutes, respectively.

   ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER activates the beeping device with a smart button system, replacing the traditional slide mode. In order to achieve the highest sound quality, the engineers made the movement and case with meticulous care. The tuning process relies on both hands and keen hearing to make the two gongs emit loud sounds and reverberations at the same time, and the sound quality is perfectly integrated.

At 7:52, seven basses, five doubles, and two trebles are emitted. The time signal sound exactly corresponds to the time displayed on the dial.

   After countless procedures and comprehensive fine-tuning processes, the various devices driven by the 771-part movement can work smoothly and ensure that the device can always perform optimally. In order to avoid damage to the operation due to accidents or potential risks, designers have added very practical safety devices. Since setting the time during the beep sequence will cause mechanical components to conflict, the watch owner will not be able to pull out the crown after activating the beep device. After the beeping process begins, the winding gear train is separated from the power-providing ratchet. This preset prevents the winding gear train and crown from turning when the gong is struck, avoiding wasting a lot of power. The digital disk switching process is also delayed until the beep sequence ends. Among them, the longest beep time is 12:59, which takes about 20 seconds. Therefore, the timekeeping sound will always correspond to the time displayed on the dial.

  In order to avoid the three-question sequence being interrupted in advance due to the power consumption of the mainspring (the watch will also stop running at this time), the beeping device will not start when the power reserve is less than twelve hours. In this case, a red mark appears on the power reserve indicator. Since the mainspring powers the beeping device via a ratchet, the number and length of the minute repeater will affect the basic power reserve of up to 36 hours.

   ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER with clear skipping display is a design example and is particularly eye-catching. The built-in patented constant-power escapement provides equal energy throughout the power reserve and drives the switching device, which reliably controls the digital display every minute.

   The calibre L043.5 in the ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER is carefully modified by hand. The balance wheel, eccentric weight and self-made cardless hairspring under the hand-carved balance wheel splint vibrate 18,800 times per hour. This beeping chronograph is made of platinum 950 and has a diameter of 44.2 mm. The solid silver dial exudes silver-gray light. Made of black rhodium-plated German silver
The time bridge, which surrounds the hour and minute digital windows on the same plane, is very eye-catching. Black polished steel hammers are neatly arranged on both sides of the small seconds dial. On the left is the clock, and on the right is the one-minute minute. And every ten minutes, the two hammers will ring the gong at the same time, making two sounds. Lange’s ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER is the second model in the ZEITWERK series with an acoustic time display. Its extraordinary design cites Lange’s milestone on the road to innovative watch concepts.

Golden Light Raymond Weil 2836-p-00807 Men’s Watch Appreciation

Raymond Weil is a relatively young Swiss watch brand. Although the brand itself does not have too deep a cultural heritage, its watch also shows excellent with its excellent design. Appearance and good performance. Raymond Weil directly uses men’s watches and women’s watches to divide the series, so it is also very easy to distinguish. Today we come to appreciate this 2836-P-00807 watch together.
 Raymond Weil men’s watch series 2836-P-00807 is marked with a new look, but it is similar to Bvlgari’s square watch, but of course it is different. Raymond Weil’s watches are trendy and soft, while Gree is inclined to be deep and classical.
The Raymond Weil 2836-P-00807 watch uses stainless steel to shape the case and is covered with gold plating to make it look as dazzling as pure gold. The large square case design is bold and novel, breaking the traditional watch’s circle. The main presentation method, at the same time, inside the square case, all the scales are arranged in a square, as is the small seconds dial. The entire design is emphasized, and the blue leaf-shaped hands in the center of the dial are too rustic. Hue adds a lot of lively elements.
Compared with the case, the crown looks so small. The crown shoulders extend from the case to form a natural form, which is really not special.

Of course, the most important thing is that although this watch uses a square watch design, each side of the case has a small arc, so that it will not be too rigid.
The penetrating design is also very interesting. At least the beauty of the movement can be seen at a glance. However, if the square watch has a square movement and a square penetrating, will it be more interesting?
 The Raymond Weil men’s watch series 2836-P-00807 is undoubtedly not a ‘lady’ who likes to move, it is more gentle and elegant, only has a calendar function, and the small second dial design is barely a special one. element.
 Raymond Weil’s calendar square watch mainly shows the concept of square, and the function of the calendar is to meet the needs of users to check the daily date. Hidden under the simple calendar window is a calendar plate with a precise calendar structure. It advances according to the rule of two times when the clock passes two times a day. However, it does not have a more advanced calendar structure such as fast jump and instant jump, so It is difficult for users to see the jump of the calendar on time at midnight. At the same time, because it does not have the highly complex structure of the annual calendar and perpetual calendar, it also makes it impossible to recognize the big and small months and leap years, so users still need to adjust by themselves during the year. Date about 5 times.
In addition, as another active element on the dial, the small second dial is undoubtedly the best to move, and time slips away. The small second dial actually installs the second hand directly on the second wheel, thereby saving the transmission process of the escapement of the ordinary third and second hands to the second hand, and at the same time, it can enrich the dial and serve two purposes.

 As a mid-to-high-end watchmaking brand, the Raymond Weil brand has its own personality and style. The men’s watch series 2836-P-00807 models show the brand’s innovative design.
 The gold-plated case made of stainless steel explains the rigorous and reliable philosophy with a square concept. The application of blue leaf-shaped hands and blue square small seconds dial releases the monotonous and quaint hue, which becomes the finishing touch of the watch. Pen; penetrating design also exquisitely carved out the movement.
The simple calendar function also adds a lot of practicality to this timepiece, and the small seconds dial adds a lot of flexibility to it.
Of course, the most important thing is the Swiss self-winding mechanical movement. The automatic rotor uses a more efficient rolling bearing winding system. With 27 stones and 42 hours of dynamic storage, it will be able to handle most environments. Wearing needs.
In short, in addition to the concept of square, Raymond Weil 2836-P-00807 watch also contains elegant and traditional style, which is also the representative work of the brand loyal to innovation.
