How To Identify The Authenticity Of Certina Watches

Observe that some counterfeit plum watches with day and week calendars on Certina watch dials have such characteristics: from the calendar window, the outside of the calendar dial is tilted backwards, or the calendar dial is plastic of. The weekly calendar dial uses Chinese to indicate the day of the week or the day of the week in English on the right and numbers on the left. Some counterfeit Certina watches are printed with the sWISSMOVT letter on the dial to indicate the Swiss movement, and the letters SHOCKPROOF are used to indicate shock-proof watches. The setting is not correct, the lines and marks are blurred, the dial letters or trademark letters and patterns are not set tightly on the dial, there are more scratches, discoloration, and night light spots on the dial, and the night light spots are added to the dial. On the side, the night light point is large and uneven, and there are also inconsistencies in the color of the night light point on the dial and the night light point on the hands.
Observe the back of the Certina watch case. All original Certina watches, especially men’s watches, must be printed with many English letters on the case back, indicating the name of the Certina watch, and country of production (SWISSMADE Swiss) , All steel or semi-steel waterproof (WATER RESISTANT), anti-magnetic (ANTIMAGETIC), shock or shock absorber name, and engraved with the trademark design for the plum watch brand. In addition, some numbers are engraved to indicate the movement number and case number of the plum watch. Most of the patterns and letters engraved on the back cover of counterfeit Certina watches are very thick and fuzzy, and the case number and movement number are unknown. An original film is usually attached to the back cover of the original Certina watch. Swiss-made gold-plated case watches are engraved with letters such as PLAQUEGI0 at the open position of the case (opposite the spring lever on which the strap is attached), indicating that the case is 10 micron gold-plated. Counterfeit watches do not have this mark, and many counterfeit watches use a process such as titanium nitride to impersonate a gold-plated case.

As a result, it was issued by Neuchatel in Switzerland the following year. Up to 80% of the precision timer certificates in Geely’s watches are covered by Girard-Perregaux watches. Because of this remarkable achievement, Girard-Perregaux has specifically published the 1966 series as the name of the series and commemorates the 1966 series.

Every year Girard Perregaux will launch new works on the 1966 series, covering everything from basic styles to high-end complexity.

Zenith Christopher Columbus Skeleton Limited Edition Watch: The Overlord In The Boutique

Zenith launched a limited edition boutique watch for the Marcus boutique in London-Christophe Colomb Skeleton skeleton watch. Like the original Christopher Columbus watch released in 2010, the design is inspired by the legendary precision marine timer. The most breakthrough design of the watch is to set the adjuster and escapement system in the frame of the automatic adjustment gyro module to ensure that the speed regulation mechanism can reduce the rate change in the flat position. Zenith said that the tourbillon fixed rate change will occur on average 4 to 6 positions, while the tilt and gyro tourbillon will change in more positions, but this is still inaccurate data. However, Zenith’s new patented system allows the escapement to be kept at a constant level, further reducing the rate of change. Different from the original, its dial and movement are hollow, and the wearer can clearly see the mysterious bottom plate, bridge and gears inside. The sapphire disk and blue steel hands at 12 o’clock indicate the hour and minute functions, the small seconds at 9 o’clock, and the power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock. With black alligator leather strap, waterproof to 30.

Men’s Choice Montblanc Star Collection Watch Recommendation

Montblanc was founded in 1906 and started as a stationery. It was acquired by the predecessor of the Richemont Group in 1977, becoming one of the early luxury brands under Richemont. Montblanc officially entered the watch industry in 1997. With years of accumulation and synergy with the Group, the brand ‘holds high and rises high,’ and has quickly launched a number of well-defined series such as stars, timewalkers, Princess Grace, Nicholas Kays and so on. And this one to appreciate today is from the Montblanc star series, Montblanc 107916.
 Montblanc 107916 watch uses a combination of stainless steel and rose gold to create a distinctive watch. Although the advancement of the times has changed a lot of antiquated ideas, the concept of luxury has not changed much, but it still hopes for noble Material, thin appearance and simple and elegant design. The watch is made of rose, but it is not exposed on the outside of the case, but on the frame, crown, bracelet and hands.

The combination of stainless steel and rose gold makes the watch no longer limited to high-profile all-gold, but also jumps out of all-steel movement, so it seems more subtle. The hands use elegant willow needles, which are classic and smooth, delicate and soft, and the Breguet characters are full of taste. Montblanc’s unique small seconds dial at 6 o’clock, with the brand logo as the background, is self-evident.
 Although Montblanc 107916 watch is out of show, Huizhong is the most important. Therefore, the brand uses the MB 4810/408 automatic winding movement. This movement has 27 diamonds without any additional modules. The important and secondary splints and parts of the movement are a symbol of high-quality movement. The use of diamonds is not to increase the value of the movement, but artificial diamonds are not expensive. Its role is to fix the gear bearings, and at the same time to help lubricate, of course, the decorative effect is also good.
The movement swing frequency is 4hz, which is 28800 times / hour. This is a high frequency in the past. It means that the balance swings 4 cycles every second and divides one second into 8 parts. The impact will only affect its 1/8 second, but this does not mean that the higher the frequency, the better. After all, if the hairspring is metal, there will be metal fatigue. In addition, high frequency consumes very much energy, and the internal gear speed will increase, which will increase. Friction, so maintaining a balanced state is the most ideal. Many tourbillon watches will also reduce the frequency. In general, it has a ball bearing that can last longer than ordinary screw bearing movements, and it is also helpful for winding efficiency.

From pens to watches, this is an industry leap; from pen and ink to machinery, this is a technologically deep leap; Montblanc originated in Germany in 1906. It mainly produces fine fountain pens, and has developed today’s watches. A qualitative leap.
The Montblanc 107916 watch is a combination of stainless steel and rose gold. The polished stainless steel bezel masks the high-profile luxury of rose gold, which is an easy way to show wisdom. The special link bracelet, on the basis of making it comfortable to wear, matches the theme of the watch, and still uses a combination of stainless steel and rose gold to penetrate through to the end.
Overall, the elegant appearance is matched with the high-quality movement, which reflects another men’s style.
