The Perfect Collision Of Extreme Art And Extreme Craftsmanship Hublot Hublot Classic Fusion Enamel Brito Watch

The collision between HUBLOT and traditional enamel technology is so incredible! But on a closer look, this watch still vividly reflects the unique brand genes and philosophy of Hublot.

   When exquisite art creations meet unique craftsmanship, the classic fusion enamel Brito watch becomes the perfect embodiment of this perfect fusion-the traditional craft ‘Bright Fire Enamel’ and modern pop and Cubism It is presented perfectly by Romero Britto’s works. The fusion of these two arts and the collision of craftsmanship has made Hublot’s immortal masterpiece.

   For a long time, enamel masters are famous for their outstanding skills. They are exquisite in micro-painting, material performance and temperature control. Adhering to the consistent style of Romero Britto’s works, it is gorgeous and colorful. The dial-making experts meticulously reproduce the outline of the work, and then press platinum on it for the next step of exquisite enamel filling ready. The enamel master first grinds the enamel in a mortar and spreads it on the dial. Various colors need to be mastered by the masters. In order to be as faithful as possible to the original, the enamel masters strictly followed the method of Romero Britto’s choice of acrylic paints to formulate enamel dyes-12 opaque colors were selected from 250 colors on the color plate, and these colors were for burning The temperature is extremely sensitive, and the control is extremely difficult. Continuous firing at a high temperature of about 800 degrees Celsius allows each color to firmly adhere to the metal. Because each color needs to be fired separately, it takes several days for the entire screen to appear in the squares on the wrist. In this way, Hublot perfectly recreates Romero Brito’s classic design with enamel filling. In the actual firing process, the enamel is divided into small pieces by ‘fine metal wires’, and its aging is extremely fine, so it is almost impossible to find. In the process of manufacturing dials, it is a challenge to reproduce the exquisiteness in the work with micro-techniques. When the harmonious and bright dial of Qin Se is leaping in front of the eyes, the masterpiece can be released.
   The classic fusion enameled Britto watch reproduces the “fusion of time”, integrating historic art into extremely modern design-giving Romero Britto’s work a unique three-dimensionality on a miniature two-dimensional dial Interpretation. The classic fusion enameled Britto watch is available in platinum or ceramic, with a black alligator leather strap sewn on rubber.
   The ceramic version is limited to 50 pieces and the platinum version is limited to 30 pieces.

For Friends! Richard Mille Limited Three Chandler 50th Anniversary Watch

RICHARD MILLE launched three limited edition Jean Todt 50th anniversary watches, respectively RM11-03, RM050 and RM056. The launch of these three limited edition watches celebrates 50 years of automotive career of the current FIA Chairman, Mr. Shantode. In addition, Mr. Shantaude and Mr. Richard Mille also have a deep friendship. This time, the three limited-edition watches are not only named after Mr. Shantaude. The colors of the watches are also based on the colors that Mr. Shantaude loves. In this context, these three RM Suntech limited editions are even more meaningful.

This limited edition of RM 11-03 has a striking blue case, which is also the favorite color of Mr. Shantaude.

First of all, let’s first see the limited edition of RM 11-03, which is also the most issued of the three limited edition watches. This flyback chronograph is based on the blue of Mr. Chandt’s favorite. At first glance, the striking blue really makes a deep impression. This flyback chronograph is made of TPT Quartz material with a case diameter of 49.94×44.5mm. The so-called TPT Quartz is actually a new material first created by RICHARD MILLE. The case made of this material will have a special texture, so each case is a unique work. In addition, this flyback chronograph is equipped with a self-winding movement equipped with a double barrel and a power reserve of approximately 55 hours. The hollowed-out faceplate fully displays the complex world of the movement in front of the wearer’s eyes.

The limited edition of only five RM050 double-travel tourbillon chronographs also continue the blue element, but the diameter is also more complicated in function.

The second one comes with a limited edition of only five RM050 dual-travel tourbillon chronographs. It also has a bright blue appearance. After all, this is Mr. Chandler’s favorite color. Its case is also made of TPT Quartz material, but the diameter is a bit thinner than RM 11-03. The diameter of this watch is 50×42.7mm. The movement is made of carbon fiber and titanium, and weighs only 9.5 grams, which is very light! In addition, its face plate is also hollowed out, just to be able to see the world of precision and high-tech movements at a glance.

The limited edition of three RM056 double-traveling tourbillon chronographs are made of sapphire crystal. It will take countless hours to create this special but extremely hard case.

The last Chandler 50th anniversary watch is a RM056 dual-travel tourbillon chronograph. Like the RM050, it is equipped with a RM CC1 bracelet movement, but this RM056 is limited to only three. At first glance, RM056 will definitely be shocked by its color, because unlike the previous two blue watches, this RM056 is made of sapphire crystal, but RICHARD MILLE is still on the crown and bezel scale Covered with a layer of blue, continuing the color elements that Mr. Chandall loved. It is also worth noting that the name of this RM056 is printed on the lower left with Mr. Shantode’s name, which is full of commemorative significance. In addition, it can be said that it is very difficult to build this RM056. In addition to the processing of each case, it takes 1000 hours, the case is pre-formed, it takes 430 hours, and finally it takes 350 hours to polish.

The Source Of Inspiration For The New Heights Of Fine Watchmaking Congratulations To The Glory Heritage Of Menela Watch Factory 160

In 2018, at the 160th anniversary of the birth of Minerva Watch Factory, Montblanc pays tribute to Minerva Watch Factory’s century-old tradition of excellence in watchmaking heritage.

   Montblanc Viller’s watchmaking tradition dates back 160 years: in 1858, Charles-Yvan Robert established a watchmaking workshop in a small village in the St. Mill Valley.
   As early as 1880, Minerva Watch Factory was recognized by the global watchmaking industry for its precision timepieces. For example, a keyless gold pocket watch researched by Minerva watchmakers can wind the movement directly by rotating the crown instead of using a separate key, which greatly improves the convenience of control. This is the important reason for the early global success of the Minerva Watch Factory.

History pictures of Minerva Watch Factory

   In 1909, the Minerva Watch Factory began to develop chronographs. With its outstanding timing accuracy, Minerva quickly became a leader in professional watch and stopwatch manufacturing. The Minerva Watch Factory manufactures several movements with chronograph functions, such as the legendary 19.09 movement (19-legs, 1909) equipped with a highly recognizable ‘V’ chronograph bridge.
   In 1911, the Minerva Watch Factory has developed a chronograph that can accurately measure to 1/5 seconds, and then quickly improved the accuracy to 1/10 seconds. Adhering to this spirit of innovation, in 1916, Minerva became one of the very first watch manufacturers to produce high-frequency movements measuring 1/100 seconds. In 1936, Minerva further improved the chronograph function of the timepieces it produced, and became famous in the field of professional watches and chronographs.

Minerva Anniversary Celebration
   In the 1920s, the Minerva Watch Factory developed the first manually-wound single-button chronograph calibre 13.20 (13 legal minutes, introduced in 1920), opening a new chapter in the history of fine watchmaking. This watch-designed movement is equipped with the iconic ‘V’ bridge, column wheel, horizontal disc clutch, and a vibration frequency of 18,000 times per hour.
   This series of developments symbolizes the precision technology and innovation level that Minerva Watch Factory has obtained in the field of fine watchmaking since 1858, further consolidating its reputation and position in the manufacture of pocket watches and chronographs.

   Countless parts are delicately assembled in the Reno factory. In order to meet the highest standards of watch quality and performance, every newly manufactured Montblanc timepiece must pass the rigorous ‘Montblanc Lab 500-hour quality test’- This is an extremely accurate and perfectly designed test. In 500 hours, the watch goes through a variety of extreme conditions: daily wear and tear, countless set-ups and resets, different climatic conditions, and checks for all special functions. This rigorous testing procedure ensures that even the most sophisticated watches maintain perfect performance during wearing.
   Only after the Montblanc Reno watch factory’s quality assurance team has verified and meets Montblanc’s strict quality standards, the timepiece works can leave the factory. Every watch that successfully passed the ‘Montblanc Lab 500 Hour Quality Test’ comes with an independent certificate, destined to become your reliable and true life companion.
