Interpretation Of Jack Heuer’s Autobiography-‘timepiece Life’

In 1860, TAGHeuer was founded by Edouard Heuer in the Jura Valley, Switzerland, and has made many remarkable achievements in the field of high-end watchmaking, including the outstandingly designed chronograph and its It has a reputation for extreme precision. The 81-year-old family heir Jack Heuer has now retired, but is still the honorary president of TAG Heuer. He has carefully written a personal autobiography, ‘A Chronicles of Life’, which contains his soul story in the words and lines. He hopes that more people will have some experience in reading and learn more about TAGHeuer.

  This ‘Times of MyLife’ is the first work to record that period from year to year in a personal perspective. In addition to some memories of Jack Heuer himself, it also includes the creation, growth and development of Heuer watches. Contains the development of Swiss watchmaking as a whole. There are also important moments recorded, such as the so-called ‘quartz crisis’ from 1975 to 1983. Below, the watch home will take everyone to briefly understand the general content of this biography.

  The cover of this book is the head of Jack Heuer. He wears a pair of glasses, his deep eyes seem to be thinking, his eyes reveal the light of hope for the future, and he is persistent and persistent. His vicissitudes are covered with traces of years, and it is precisely this weather-suffering that has filled his life with ups and downs and excitement.

  In retrospect, TAGHeuer is the first luxury watch brand to be accurate to 1/100, 1/10001 or even 5/10000. From the 1920 Olympic Games to the official timing of F1, and even today the official timer of the legendary Indy 500 race car, TAGHeuer pursues innovation to create excellence and constantly challenges the limit of time.

  This book is divided into ten chapters. They are childhood, youth and education. They are familiar with the industry, work hard to build a brand, set out to deal with the first problems, face up to difficulties, and deal with the crisis of watches and clocks. Start. In each chapter, Jack Heuer uses his own experience to show the most vivid stories, which benefits the reader.

  Below we briefly understand the history of the brand, as well as some personal experiences of Jack Heuer. The TAG Heuer dates back to the 15th century and geographically originates from the lake district called Seeland near Bien. The TAG Heuer family crest is a lion standing on its hind legs, with an axe on its left paw, and a rake on its right shoulder. The axe in the coat of arms usually represents the ability and willingness to perform military tasks.

  Jack Heuer is the last member of the brand family who is still active in the industry. He is not only the soul of the company, but also an important spokesperson for the brand. His first contribution to watchmaking was around 1947 or 1948. At the time, he was only 15 years old. He helped his father establish a connection with his physics teacher and created the first tidal watch, Solar, which was later renamed Mareograph_Seafarer. This is also the first time he has been involved in watch manufacturing in his field of life.

  1957 was a turning year for Jack Heuer. At the time, Jack Heuer was a young Swiss who was only 25 years old. Immediately after graduating from school, he could not wait to start a career in a world-renowned international consulting firm in Boston. To get rid of his small watchmaking business at home. However, his father persuaded him to change his mind, and from then on he became familiar with the family’s watchmaking career.

  The family’s stopwatch and chronograph business was run by Jack Heuer’s father and uncle. The young Jack Heuer witnessed the impact of World War II on the family business. After the war, he deeply realized the unification of the world’s center of gravity, and the United States rose to become a political and economic superpower. In 1957, he graduated from the Department of Electronic Engineering of the well-known Zurich Federal Institute of Technology, majoring in production and management. He has a more open vision, rational and systematic thinking than a watchmaker, and the rigorous attitude of a professor at the academy.

  In 1961, the 28-year-old Jack Heuer became the controlling shareholder of Heuer, and he promoted many innovative measures to prepare for the company’s future. In 1963, influenced by modern architecture and avant-garde design styles, to create elegant and easy-to-read dials, Jack Heuer created the iconic Heuer Carrera chronograph.

  The subsequent economic crisis severely hit the Swiss watch industry, forcing most US importers to suspend recurrent orders. In order to stimulate the market, Jack Heuer has advanced to protect his company. Constantly introduce new products, develop new products, and adjust the internal structure to strengthen the board of directors. 1982 can be said to be a tragic year. A series of unfortunate developments forced Jack Heuer to surrender the company’s management rights. He would never think of helplessness and grief at the time. He could rebuild and make a comeback within 20 years. Since then, under his leadership, TAG Heuer has continuously made breakthrough innovations with brilliant results and won eight Geneva watchmaking awards.

What Kind Of Watch Is Worthy Of Bugatti Dragon King

Almost every man dreams of having a supercar of his own. She is sexy and contoured, her lights are bright like night elves, and the roar of the engine seems to tear the air. People see memorable stunners at first sight. At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Molsheim luxury car manufacturer Bugatti brought the new Chiron model, which is equipped with Bugatti’s proud 8.0-liter 16-cylinder 4-turbocharged W-type engine, which accelerates the 100 km to less than 2.5 seconds. With a top speed of 420 km / h, it has become a new generation dragon king replacing Weihang. In 2018, on this basis, Bugatti launched the Chiron Sport model again. Based on the original configuration, the appearance was adjusted to highlight the sportiness. At the same time, the use of carbon fiber and other materials will reduce the weight of the vehicle by 18kg and 100 kilometers. The acceleration takes only 2.4 seconds.

Bugatti Chiron
  Bugatti Chrion’s prestige can be described as a thunderbolt in the supercar world. Although stronger supercars still exist, one thing that cannot be ignored is that it is not a concept car, but a production car for driving, 1500 horsepower and 1600 cows. · The power of Mi is almost invincible in mass-produced cars. It is a symbol of Volkswagen Group’s superb car-building ability. The starting price of Chiron Sport is up to 2.65 million Euros, which is about 21 million RMB, so it is also a symbol of wealth.

Bugatti Chiron Sport
  In fact, such a supercar has completely surpassed the understanding of conventional cars, and it is the ultimate embodiment of the pursuit of cost. It uses carbon fiber and titanium alloys to make parts, including engines. Chiron Sport wipers are all carbon fiber. We know that precision carbon fiber and titanium alloy parts are expensive, because they require high-tech equipment to manufacture them. . The aerodynamically designed casing, in addition to reducing the resistance of the air, also makes full use of the rapid flow of air to balance the ground and cool the braking system. The W-type 16-cylinder 4-turbocharged engine is the artwork of a mechanical engine. The top speed reaches 420 km / h. The engine can pump 60,000 liters of air, and the cooling system can circulate 800 liters of coolant. It is limited to software control. It is not even known how much its real speed is.

  So what kind of watch is worthy of such mechanical artwork? The first must be handsome, the second strong, and the third unique. Similarly, the top pursuit of mechanical art is the perfect combination of top-level watches. They all pursue the ultimate in mechanical performance. They are all men’s coveted possessions. They are the most advanced (and most expensive) ‘toy’ for men. They inspire men’s dreams and ambitions.

Parmigiani Bugatti 390 Concept
   Parmigiani has been cooperating with Bugatti since 2004. For more than ten years, they have become close partners. Parmigiani’s Bugatti series is born for this purpose. There are two types of Parmigiani Bugatti watches. One is a special edition watch that is newly designed based on the concept of the Bugatti Supercar, and the other is the introduction of some iconic elements of the Supercar based on the existing shell shape. , Forming a unique style of super running, they are the art darling of super running and watchmaking.

   The best match with the Bugatti Chiron is naturally the Parmigiani BUGATTI 390 watch. The Parmigiani Bugatti 390 watch itself was launched for the advent of Chiron. It is completely different from the previous Bugatti series watches such as Bugatti 370, VICTOIRE and other shell shapes, and is similar to Bugatti VITESSE, Super Sport The shell shape is a bit similar but the movement layout is not the same, so the Bugatti 390 is a brand new watch. There are currently three models: Bugatti 390, Bugatti Type 390, and Bugatti 390 concept models. .

  We know that Bugatti 370 and the 10th anniversary of Bugatti are the most classic representatives of Parmigiani Bugatti series watches. Its overall tubular movement arrangement subverts the rules of the traditional mechanical watch movement layout, thereby realizing the watch. A streamlined look like a Bugatti sports car. In 2010, the advent of the Bugatti Super Sport watch added the infinite charm of the Bugatti watch. The stepped movement is completely different from the previous tubular movement. The dial is on the side of the watch. The intention is that the driver does not need to lift it. You can see the time on the dial directly with your arm. Today, the BUGATTI TYPE 390 watch, as the crown of the New Dragon King, not only is more sporty and exaggerated in the design of the case, but also transfers the dial to the front of the watch, while the case still maintains a streamline like the Bugatti Supercar. Exterior. In the same vein, they are all inspired by Bugatti’s powerful supercar engine.

Bugatti W16 engine and Parmigiani PF 390 movement
  The Bugatti Chiron’s W-type 16-cylinder engine is the killer that allows Chiron to stand on the altar of supercars. Although modern hybrid systems can reduce the difficulty of climbing to the peak, Bugatti hopes to use a traditional power engine to promote supercars to the top of the speed. Representing extreme mechanical engineering. The same is true of the Bugatti 390, which uses a cylinder-type mechanical movement, a pure mechanical structure, and a pure Swiss watchmaking process, bringing unparalleled mechanical beauty.

   At the same time, the power and speed control system of the Bugatti 390 coaxial design also pays tribute to this outstanding engine of Bugatti. To this end, Parmigiani has broken through a lot of conventional designs, such as coaxial barrel-connected double barrels, a ‘triangular coupling’ design, a sturdy rod to help the crown switch between winding and setting time, planetary gears (by Center wheel, 3 satellite wheels and a fixed crown).

  At the same time, Parmigiani is equipped with a one-minute flying tourbillon for the Bugatti 390 movement, which is an accurate expression of the century-old watchmaking art and represents the artistic aesthetics of top mechanical watchmaking.

  Of course, in addition to the core power, the interior and materials of the Bugatti Chiron are also top in the industry. The entire body, including the hood, uses a wide range of carbon fiber, which is light and strong, ensuring super-powerful performance. The Parmigiani Bugatti 390 Carbon fiber shells are also used on both sides of the watch, matching the Chiron. In addition, although Chiron is a supercar, it also pays attention to artistic beauty. The rich and traditional interior is amazing. The perfect balance between high-tech and artistic beauty makes Chiron’s charm unmatched. Parmigiani also has its own aesthetic concept, manufacturing is a technology, and making is an art. Parmigiani Bugatti 390 watch has undergone a precise and delicate hand-made process to make the watch no matter its appearance or movement. No fear of the critical eye of the artist.
  The Parmigiani Bugatti 390 watch is an art born for Chiron.
