Glasutti Limited Observation Table

Proud of its rich 165 years of precision German watchmaking craftsmanship, Glashütte Glory has launched a limited edition watch-‘Observation Watch 1911-Julias Asman’. This extraordinary timepiece, limited to 25 pieces worldwide, was hand-finished in the Glashütte watchmaking factory to serve as two pioneering pioneers-Mr. Julias Asman and Roald Amon Mr. Mori pays tribute. Glashütte Limited Watch 1911-Julias Asman
Mr. Julias Asman founded the watchmaking company at the age of 25 and was one of the four founding fathers of the watchmaking industry in the town of Glashütte. Pocket watches, ship clocks and observation watches made by Mr. Julias Asman and his staff have laid an important foundation for the company’s reputation. Especially the watch is famous for its extraordinary precision and outstanding craftsmanship. Mr. Roald Amundsen ordered many Julias Asman watch watches before embarking on his voyage to study history, one of which was by Ball watch Wei produced in 1907/08. This watch produced by Lowe was extremely precise, and he was urged to send it to the German Naval Observatory in Hamburg for testing. The German Naval Observatory is an official agency that tests and certifies the accuracy of chronographs produced in Germany. It was there that Mr. Roald Amundsen discovered the watch and bought it in 1910. On December 14, 1911, the Norwegian polar explorer and his expedition team became the first people to reach the South Pole in the world.
Mr. Julias-Siman is a Norwegian polar explorer and the first person to reach the South Pole in the world.
Observation tables are also known as ‘nautical charts’, which are used by navigators to confirm the position of the ship in the sea as accurately as possible, along with ship clocks and other instruments. Ammonsen must have made good use of his watch when sailing the polar ship Fram to Antarctica; after his expedition departed from the Framenham base in Whale Bay, he observed The time of the watch becomes the only criterion: set an observation watch as the time of departure, and use it as the same function as the ship clock. Set another observation table as the destination time, and the time difference between the two can use the method of spherical trigonometry to calculate the position of the expedition’s route to the South Pole. Of course, the use of a compass and sextant is also indispensable. As a result, Amundsen’s watch was extremely important for his expeditionary mission: without them, he would never reach his destination, let alone win for Norway. Today, at the Fram Museum in Oslo, there are many documents showing the historic expedition, including an observation table produced by the town of Glashütte used by Amundsen. The dial is clearly engraved. ‘J. Assmann-Glashütte’.
Glashütte Limited Watch 1911-Julias Asman
Before 1971, even in the turbulent years, the production of the watch in the town of Glashütte had never stopped.
The Glashütte brand launched 25 limited edition exquisite watches in 2012, named after the ‘watch’, just to commemorate Julia Assman’s watch and Amundsen’s outstanding achievements in the Antarctic. The silver lacquered dial of the watch 1911 is made up of three separate layers of white lacquer, and the third layer is finely textured and silvery. Separate small seconds and power reserve displays are located at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions of the dial, respectively, and a large Glassti date window at 6 o’clock. Slender blue polished minute and pear-shaped hour hands, with black Arabic numerals in the rolled rail-shaped graduated ring.
Glasutti limited edition watch 1991-Julias Asman has a round case made of white gold and a brown calfskin strap, which evokes memories of the years of adventure and clippings of the explorer Amundsen era. The back of the case is engraved with a number marking the limited edition (01/25), and the anti-glare sapphire crystal glass is engraved with the date of Amundsen’s arrival in the Antarctic and its centennial date-December 14, 1911-2011 December 14. Also engraved with Julius Assmann–Glashütte
I / SA (Julia Assmann-Glasutti / Saxony), and ‘Tribute to R. Amundsen’.
特别 Special movement in honour of Julias Asman
Observation table 1911-Julias Asman’s movement-100-14 movement, is a well-made automatic winding movement. The traditional watch is a manual winding movement. To give the wearer maximum comfort, the Glashütte brand chose an automatic winding movement for this limited edition watch. ‘AB AUF’ on the dial shows the power reserve, not just the passage of time. The movement has a reset mechanism to ensure that the second hand is synchronized with the standard time. In contrast to other resets, the second hand is not connected to the winding shaft or crown. Regardless of whether the crown is pulled out, the vibration system and the movement are continuously running, which can greatly reduce the wear of the movement parts. Starting the reset device requires pressing a separate reset button. The two-way winding oscillating weight transmits power to the patented reducer gear, and then transmits the power to two smaller series barrels. Most of the power was transmitted to the mainspring, which was soon full of power.
不 It is not difficult to find through the sapphire crystal case that the 100-14 automatic winding movement is the best gift to Julias Asman. The movement has the traditional characteristics of Glashütte: three-quarter splint, gold sleeve. The gold rotor with double G logo is the hallmark of Glashütte’s high-end mechanical watches.

Beautiful Body: Jaeger-lecoultre Venus Three Questions Watch

The creative inspiration comes from many aspects, centering around the Italian Renaissance, Spanish academy, and French classicism. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s enamel painters chose typical images as inspiration for their creations: including The Birthof Venus by Botticelli, and the Venus of Urbino by Titian ( The Venus of Urbino), Velazquez’s ‘Rokeby Venus’ and Angel’s ‘Venus Anadyomène’ watchmaker The admired artist in his heart subtly combined with the crystal-clear, crisp bell sound of the Master Minute Repeater three-question watch. In order to ensure the artistic beauty of these four watches, all hour and minute scales have been designed in the simplest style, which is convenient for reading and simple and implicit. There are two additional displays on the dial: the torque released by the dual barrel is set at 4 o’clock, and the power reserve display is set at 8 o’clock
    Jaeger-LeCoultre is one of the few watchmaking companies that is skilled in the use of enamel, and what Jaeger-LeCoultre focuses on is the most sophisticated micropainting enamel in enamel. It requires the artist to draw the pattern on the dial one by one without using any auxiliary methods (such as reeling and filling), and finally burn the painting in a space that is not square enough.
    Whether it’s the Jaeger-LeCoultre Venus three-question series or the ultra-thin enamel painted clear flower series, a delicate micro-painted enamel dial takes months to complete and is therefore extremely precious.
