Does the second hand of the watch take 60 seconds to run on the dial? With the wonderful ideas and exquisite craftsmanship of Breguet’s watchmakers, this question can have a completely different answer.
Last year coincided with the fiftieth anniversary of the launch of the Type XX watch, and this year also happened to be the century of the French Navy’s aviation. For this reason, Breguet re-interpreted this legendary chronograph watch exclusively for the French Air Force, and introduced the Breguet Type XXII3880ST chronograph after modern technology transformation. The watch contains a Breguet chronograph movement with a silicon escapement and balance spring. The swing frequency has been increased to 10 Hz (that is, 72,000 vibrations per hour), which is also a world-leading technical invention. Because of the application of this technology, the movement of the Breguet Type XXII 3880ST chronograph has an unparalleled ability to adjust: the chronograph second hand can complete a full revolution of the dial every 30 seconds, and because of this technology, the timekeeping of the watch The startup function and the accuracy of the timing have been doubled! In addition, the use of silicon material in the movement structure can effectively reduce the weight of escapement moving parts such as the escape wheel and fork lever, while also avoiding the lubrication problem that may be caused by excessive swing frequency.
提高 The improvement of the swing frequency of the watch has also made some changes in the design of the dial of the Breguet Type XXII3880ST chronograph. Compared with ordinary chronographs, the most significant change of the Breguet Type XXII3880ST chronograph lies in the division of watch scales: the scale on the inner bezel is divided into red and white. When reading time, people only need to observe the watch’s Whether the red and white chronograph seconds hand is located in the red zone (0 to 30 seconds) or the white zone (30 to 60 seconds), you can clearly understand the current time. At the center of the dial, another red hand will move forward by one space after every 30 seconds to count the minutes.
At the same time, the small dial design style of the Breguet Type XXII3880ST chronograph is also unique. At six o’clock, the watch is equipped with a second time zone display and a calendar window below this dial. The 24-hour indicator dial at three o’clock helps the wearer know whether the area covered by the second time zone is now day or night. The second hand of the small three-hand dial at the nine o’clock position of the watch also rotates once in 30 seconds to show the extraordinaryness of this work.
In addition, this excellent chronograph also has a flyback function. Just press the chronograph zero button under the crown to quickly restart the chronograph function from zero. With a two-speed crown, the central hour hand can be adjusted and the second time zone indicator can be reset without affecting the minute hand. When the crown is in this position, the calendar changes with the time in the central main time zone.
In order to make the style of the watch more sporty, the Breguet Type XXII3880ST chronograph uses a black dial that contrasts with red and white hands to set off. The watch also uses a complete calfskin strap to make the watch more powerful. In order to exhibit Breguet’s breathtaking 10Hz swing frequency technology, Breguet also held a related exhibition at Cit & eacute; du Temps in Geneva from January 14 to February 13, 2011. Let visitors clearly and accurately understand the technical concept of 10Hz swing frequency, and at the same time show the historical contribution of this technology to the entire watchmaking industry.
Continuously pioneering and innovating, Breguet has undoubtedly become a leader in the field of fine watchmaking. This is not only due to the wonderful inventions such as tourbillon, pare-chute anti-vibration device and gong spring created by the founder Master Breguet more than 200 years ago, but also because of Breguet’s watchmaking masters’ technical heritage and development of. This is evident from the unparalleled technological breakthrough of the Breguet Type XXII3880ST chronograph.
