Please Answer 1969 – Time To Move Glashütte Original

This time I went to Switzerland to participate in the ‘Time to Move’ watch exhibition. Five of the six brands held new product launch conferences in their own watch factory. The only exception was Glashütte Original. No Way, because the watch factory is far from the small town of Glashütte near Dresden, Germany, so the press conference chose the Starling Hotel in Geneva. Interestingly, this hotel is located next to the Palexpo Exhibition Center, which hosts the SIHH in Geneva, which is the home of Richemont Group. I have been here every year for the past 12 years. Every time I come back, my head is always moving. This time, Palexpo is very quiet, and the contrast is quite large. However, the original watch factory of Glashütte and I may not have arrived yet! Previously, the brand invited me to visit the watch factory and drop by to the Berlin Film Festival (Glasutti Original was originally the main sponsor of the Berlin Film Festival, but this partnership has not been renewed since the end of the film festival last year), because it happened One of the reasons why I changed the window of work was because of other important arrangements, and I asked my colleagues to do it for me, but all of them failed. This fate can only hope that the next time it will come true!

The black dial has six rough Arabic numerals, the date window at 3 o’clock, with a rotating outer ring, and the words ’26 Rubis’ and ‘Shockproof’ at 6 o’clock. ’26 Rubis’ refers to the movement’s total of 26 ruby ​​bearings. ‘Shockproof’ represents the watch’s excellent water resistance. SeaQ 1969 limited edition of 69 hands is green The first batch of SeaQ watches has 3 models and 11 watches. The first two models are limited to 69 SeaQ 1969 watches and unlimited. SeaQ watch, these two watches are similar in appearance to the original antique watch, the difference is that the limited-edition luminous coating of the hour and minute hands is green, the non-limited-edition luminous coating of the hands is beige, and both use a black dial, limited edition With a rubber strap or a synthetic nylon strap, the non-limited edition adds the choice of stainless steel bracelet.

Both watches are 42 mm in diameter. The moon phase is equipped with an automatic winding movement, and the mobile savings is equipped with a manual winding movement. The power reserve is 42 hours. The more interesting part is to highlight its pure ‘German descent’. Some functions on the disk are displayed in German, such as the moon phase Mondphase, the power reserve Gangreserve, and the big calendar Panoramadatum. PanoMaticLunar Moon Phase Watch and PanoReserve Watch Another Pano eccentric series this year is the limited edition of the watch with inverted movement. Introduced in 2008, the movement inverted watch presents the most famous German watchmaking 3/4 plywood, double gooseneck fine-tuning, beautifully carved balance plywood, blue steel screws, ruby ​​and gold sleeves and so on. . The new version is made of platinum and is limited to 25 pieces. The special feature is that the previous splints with straight grain decoration are exquisitely carved and the base plate of the movement is removed, allowing the balance wheel and its splint to float in the air. The case diameter is 42 mm and it is equipped with a manual winding movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. The watch has many blue elements, including hour and minute dials, seconds dial, blue steel screws, blue alligator leather strap, and a convex round sapphire on the crown. PanoInverse limited-edition watch limited edition Senator Senator series In 2009, the brand launched Senator Chronometer Senator Chronometer watch under Senator Senator series, the model is certified by the official German observatory, This is like many Swiss watch brands will apply for the Swiss Official Observatory Certification (COSC), which means that the accuracy of the movement has reached the standard. However, unlike Switzerland, which tests the movement, Germany tests the movement after it is placed in the case. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Senator Observatory. The watch has been slightly modified, and the new version of the bezel has become thinner, which makes the dial larger. Rose gold case diameter 42 mm, manual winding movement, power reserve 44 hours and 40 minutes (± 5%). The movement design has a characteristic that the crown is pulled out, the second hand immediately stops and returns to zero, and the minute hand will jump to the next minute scale. At this time, the time will be adjusted, and the minute hand will jump to each full minute scale, allowing seconds and minutes The right connection is always maintained. At 12 o’clock is the power reserve display. There is a small circular hole on it. It is a day and night display. It is white during the day and black at night. Senator Chronometer Senator Chronometer Watch This Senator Chronometer Tourbillon Senator Chronometer Watch Limited Edition is the brand’s highest priced watch this year, with a price of 150,000 Euros. It is estimated that the domestic price is approaching 1.5 million RMB. Why is it so expensive? Because this is the brand’s first watch with flying tourbillon stop seconds and zeroing functions, and brands with such technology are also very few in the entire watchmaking industry. I actually operated at the conference site. When the watch is running, first pull the crown out of the first segment, at this time the tourbillon frame and the second hand above it stop, and then pull the crown out of the second segment. The second hand is clockwise Return to zero, adjust the time at this time, the minute hand is beating at 1 minute and 1 minute. When the time is set, press the crown back and the second hand starts to move immediately. This ensures that the minutes and seconds are accurately synchronized, which is more in line with the title of ‘Observatory’. The watch is made of platinum, with a diameter of 42 mm. The lower splint is beautifully carved, creating a 3D effect at high and low levels. The hand-wound movement is certified by the German Observatory and has a power reserve of 70 hours. Limited Edition of the Senator Observatory Tourbillon Watch Vintage Vintage Series Finally, there are two Sixties 60s series annual limited edition watches, one large three-pin, one large The calendar was actually released at the end of February this year, and this time was worn by Roland Von Keith, the CEO of the brand at the launch event in Geneva. The beautiful gradient dial is very eye-catching. This is from the brand’s own Pforzheim dial factory, from the center to the edge, from golden yellow to orange, red, and then to the outermost black, the color Bright and eye-catching, unforgettable at first sight. Vintage vintage series 60s and 60s big calendar watches At the press conference, I also experienced a process of ‘pad printing’ of the dial. It can only be said that it is amazing!
