Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X

Hot summer: Check out Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X magma The July 4th celebration officially kicked off in the United States, and the record-breaking heat wave spread across the European continent. I think it can be said that we have reached the summer. All the discussions about the hot weather on both sides of the Atlantic reminded me of a timepiece that arrived in my inbox a few months ago. The watch Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X Magma is an extremely bold interpretation of the Executive Skeleton X design, which debuted at SIHH in January.

Executive Skeleton X is an easier-to-use version of Executive Skeleton Tourbillon launched in 2016 for various purposes and purposes. Ulysse Nardin effectively adopted the design of a tourbillon-free watch and rearranged the structure of the movement until it is now fixed in place by a rectangular bridge that extends outward in four directions to form an “X”, so Named after. Four different versions of the watch were exhibited in the Geneva media earlier this year, namely titanium, titanium black DLC, rose gold and Carbonium gold-the appearance of each hollow case is different. The Carbonium gold iteration provides the most similar aesthetic effect to the new Magma watch. Carbonium is a lightweight material made of carbon fiber, usually associated with aerospace engineering (Ulysse Nardin also released the Freak X version with Carbonium case at SIHH 2019).

For Skeleton X Carbonium, the brand blended materials with gold to create an impressive stripe effect. For the Skeleton X Magma, UN used a similar method to combine carbon fiber with bright red marble marble epoxy resin to create a striking appearance of the case. According to fake Ulysse Nardin, this process means that each version of Skeleton X Magma will have a slightly different product, thereby providing a certain degree of personality to each produced watch. Similar to the Carbonium version, the Skeleton X Magma has a size of 43 mm, while other designs of titanium and rose gold are 42 mm. Inside this unique case is the hand-wound UN-371 movement with a four-day power reserve, ultra-wide 3 Hz silicon balance wheel, nickel flyweight, and silicon “minute” gear train.

With such a gorgeous design, I believe Ulysse Nardin will clearly find that the Skeleton Magma X will cause some controversy among the more conservative enthusiast crowd, but I also have no doubt that this watch fake will find a target audience. This new watch is not only an excellent substitute for trying to track one of Richard Mille’s latest creations at a quarter price, but it also has a five-year warranty and quality that can be purchased from a mature Swiss brand Trusted in.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5372P major complications

A one-minute reference book for Patek Philippe. 5372P major complications.

Between the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Aquanaut and the 40th anniversary of the birth of Calibre 240, Ref. Unfortunately, since its launch in 2017, 5372P has not received much attention. But it is indeed worthy of your love, even if it is not in your collection, because it represents a new interpretation of Patek Philippe’s split-second split-second timer with a perpetual calendar. This charming 38.3 mm platinum case with a manual-winding internal movement has a recessed bezel and satin-finished sides. The dial is blue with a sunburst pattern or rose gold and vertical satin finish .

New addition: Patek Philippe Ref. 6301P eldest son

The head of Patek Philippe’s watch development department said nothing.

Patek Philippe launched one of the most technically epic and elegant watches in 2020 through Ref to close the year of the watch. 6301P Grande and Petite Sonnerie.

Ref. Inspired by the 20 intricate double-sided master carillons launched in 2014 to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Patek Philippe. 6301P Grande And Petite Sonnerie (Grande and Petite Sonnerie) is the descendant of the craftsmanship, with its purest and most penetrating expression, it celebrates the art of horological complications.

This exquisite and elegant timepiece (pun intended) is housed in a 44.8 mm platinum case with a black enamel dial and has three watchmaking functions-the noble Sonnerie, the small Sonnerie and the minute repeater, as well as manual winding Patented jumping seconds display driven by the movement. GS 36-750 PS IRM movement. We will unpack the copy men watch in more detail in time. But now, this is the complete conversation of Philip Barat, head of Patek Philippe watch development, about the development process of the watch when it is released on the global network.

Philip Barat, Head of Watch Development, Patek Philippe
“The development phase began in 2007-14 years ago, when we were working on our 175th anniversary watch, Grandmaster Chime. In 2014, we were able to show the most complex timepiece with five different eye-catching functions: Da Sonny , Petite Sonny, Minute Repeater, Minute Repeater, Alarm Clock and Date Minute Repeater. But even in 2007, we considered the subsequent development of a complete Grand Sonsonie watch series.

“The challenge of the referee. The 6301P is not in the position we expected. They mainly involve the design of the auxiliary second hand at six o’clock. Due to the inspiration of the clock, the Grandmaster Chime has no stopwatch display-it is a double-sided watch with a perpetual calendar display on one side and the other On the side is the travel time with date display-initially, there is no space on the case. Reference 6301P is the auxiliary second.

“According to Ref. 6301P, it is worrying. In 2007, there are plans to make “simple” large-scale complex functions, and the auxiliary seconds indicator is considered.

“When (development) reached a certain critical point three or four years ago, we asked ourselves:’How do we place the auxiliary second hand at six o’clock?” A truly elegant idea is to reuse the mechanism we have developed in the reference We also launched the 5275 Chiming Jump Hour in 2014 to celebrate the 175th anniversary. It has the functions of jumping time, jumping time and second jumping, and will knock the gong at the top of each hour.

“We adopted the jumping seconds mechanism and integrated it at exactly the same height as the basic movement, without having to increase it (higher height) by positioning it at six o’clock. Therefore, we were at six o’clock. There is an auxiliary second, which jumps once every second, which is unique for the ensemble sonata.

“But this is not our initial plan. The goal is to create a highly reliable and technical-looking seconds indicator. We can also use a friction wheel to display the seconds of the eccentric wheel gap. But as a true watchmaker, we are in favor of mechanical challenges.

“So this is the biggest challenge. Because in essence, Ref. 6301 is Ref. 6300, we removed some elements from it to achieve the greatest degree of elegance, while retaining the indications of hours, minutes, and seconds, while retaining two Two power reserve indicators-one for the moving train and the other for the timekeeping mechanism.

“The two motion engineers are Ref. 6300 and No. 6301. However, as with all projects, there are some working groups provided by watchmakers, laboratories and quality assurance personnel. We also include assembly and tool manufacturing Experts. In short, they have been involved in the development and production chain from the beginning of the project. This is essential to achieve the desired quality.

The mechanical device cannot be manufactured by positioning the parts correctly. The development of new movements and new watches requires everyone’s expertise. “
