Church Bells Patek Philippe’s New Ref.5073 Minute Repeater Watch

Patek Philippe’s new Ref.5073 minute repeater watch is one of the few watches with church bell alarm and perpetual calendar functions. What’s even more commendable is that the 103 baguette diamonds on the bezel and 55 diamonds set on the dial and buckle show the luxury of this watch.
Because the length of the ‘church bell’ reed is almost twice that of ordinary reeds, the acoustic principle of this ultra-long reed is self-explanatory: the longer the reed, the more melodious the chime sound. But because the ‘church bell’ spring bar can neither touch each other, nor can its suspended parts touch the movement or the case, the only part that can be contacted is the miniature short-range hammer. Therefore, manufacturing is extremely difficult.
For this watch, Patek Philippe chose the time-keeping device that attracted much attention when it introduced the astronomical tourbillon watch in 2001, allowing the Ref.5073 watch to report the hours and quarter clocks in three tones: bass, treble, and high-low mixing. And minutes. The roundness of the timekeeping sound must be personally inspected by Patek Philippe’s owner, the president, who is the guardian of Patek Philippe’s historical tradition: every finished watch must pass their rigorous inspection before leaving the factory.
Perpetual calendar function is presented through three auxiliary dials at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. No calendar adjustment required until 2100. The highly accurate moon phase display is located in the date dial at 6 o’clock. Like other Patek Philippe watches, the moon phase differs from the actual lunar cycle by one day every 122 years and 45 days.
The watch uses a 42 mm diameter case, made of PT950 platinum, and is processed by traditional cold molding. The watch’s bezel and lugs are set with a total of 103 top Wesselton baguette diamonds, weighing approximately 4.33 carats. The black lacquered gold dial is set with 13 baguette diamonds (approximately 0.25 carats) as hour markers. Another 42 baguette diamonds (approximately 0.69 carats) are set on the surface of the platinum buckle. According to the practice of Patek Philippe, the case is set with a low-profile and restrained 0.02 carat diamond between the lugs at 6 o’clock to show that it is a platinum case.
腕表 This watch has a solid platinum case back and comes with a replaceable sapphire crystal caseback, through which you can admire the precise movement. The first thing that catches the eye is the carved 22K gold automatic plate, the hollow Calatrava cross star pattern under the gold-plated dome cover, and the small centrifugal regulator, which controls the normal rhythm of the timekeeping device.

Hot Models Make Everyone Love Rolex

If Rolex watches are to be classified from a broader perspective, they are actually three types of watches, one is a formal watch such as a diary and a day calendar, and the other is a water ghost, green glass, etc. There is another type of sports watch, which is a non-Japanese watch (cellini has been discontinued, due to its artistry, and individuals are more willing to classify it as a collection series). This time, we will use men’s sports as an introduction to introduce the hot-selling models that are currently on sale for the purpose of introducing bricks and stones.

 Rolex Green Water Ghost

Water ghost is everyone’s nickname for ‘submariner’. At present, there are mainly green water ghost and black water ghost. Green water ghost is undoubtedly the best-selling one. As long as it arrives at the store, it will basically be gone for a few days . Green Water Ghost was first introduced in 2010. It is characterized by the watch’s surface being PVD-plated with ‘green gold’ coating, and the ratio of its green gold material is a secret. The green water ghost quickly became popular as soon as it was launched. The main reasons can be attributed to the following: first, the design itself is classic; second, the performance is outstanding; then, the output is low; finally, there is speculation. At present, domestic specialty stores and dealers are hard to see. Occasionally, a few will come. At present, the official price is still 70,000 yuan, but it is a pity that it is difficult to buy if you have money.

 Rolex Blackwater

Black Water Ghost is a watch model launched to fill the huge vacancy of Green Water Ghost in the market, but it is not a ‘black gold’, but a black ceramic. As the water ghost itself is very classic, and through the ‘toss’ of the green water ghost, the niggas have also become a good choice. The current official offer is 65900.

 Rolex Daytona

Daytona is a hard goods in Rolex. Currently the main products on sale are the new ice blue chestnut Daytona, the precious metal Daytona and other styles. Among them, the best-selling is the black disk steel Daytona. Tonna, commonly known as ‘Black Steel Di’. From the perspective of price, the most purchased Rolex watches are still below 100,000, and most of Daytona’s watches are made of precious metal or gold, which are expensive, and there are fewer steel models with lower prices. Black Daytona is more optional in terms of performance and matching. Generally, it will be more suitable if you buy it for yourself.

The price of the new Daytona last year was 600,000, which has to be said to be a very high price. Although the design is new and the materials are special, from the perspective of sales and consumers, there are not many people who are willing to pay for it. .

 Rolex Explorer

Explorer is a very famous series of Rolex sports watches. The most classic of them is the Explorer II. At present, there are only white and black plates in this series. The official price is 64200. Its classic feature is that the orange hands on the dial are very prominent, and it is equipped with the brand’s patented 3187 automatic movement, which is a classic in Rolex watches. Both types of disks have their own strengths, but according to the feedback from specialty stores and dealers, the white-board Explorer II is more popular.

 Rolex Milguass

Milguass (composed of Mile representing thousands and Gauss representing Gauss) is a model of antimagnetic watch. Before Omega’s new world’s highest antimagnetic watch released last year, Lau’s Milguass is the world’s most famous and the best antimagnetic wrist watch. table. One of the watches, the model number of which is 116400GV, is highly sought after. Because the watch mirror uses green sapphire crystal glass, it is commonly known as ‘green glass’ and the official price is 63200.

 Rolex Greenwich

The Greenwich series is a model that Rolex uses to make two places. It is similar to the Explorer, but the movement is different. The Explorer 2187 uses the 3187 movement, while the Greenwich II uses the 3186 movement. Among them, 3187 has more brand patented Paraflex cushioning devices than 3186. At present, the most popular Greenwich series is the new two-color ceramic watch released last year, also known as the ‘Inter Milan ring’. However, due to the short time to market, the sales volume is still not as good as the previous models. The Inter circle should become a hot-selling model in the future, because it also has some of the characteristics of the green water ghost.

 Rolex Yacht-Master

The Yacht-Master model is a highly specialized functional watch in Rolex. Among them are the Yacht-Master model and the Yacht-Master II model. The first generation is relatively simple and has no professional functions. The second generation has a 10-minute countdown. Features. At present, for the first generation, the more popular models are the silver and blue steel models, which are priced at 102,100 yuan and 95,800 yuan, respectively. The second generation depends on the performance of the new steel models last year.

In general, Rolex is currently selling watches, the most product is undoubtedly the diary and day calendar type, but the most popular is still sports models. Due to the impact of relevant national policies on luxury products, the watch market is bleaker compared to previous years. From the point of view of sales, sales are not as good as in previous years. Precious metal models are more difficult to pay for and more people have the money to buy for themselves Will choose steel.

In short, for the time being, the most popular Rolex models are concentrated in sports models within 100,000. At the same time, we will also pay attention to some new watches, but when it comes to purchase, there are still more wait-and-see.

Lady F Laurent Ferrier

The LAURENT FERRIER brand has decided to launch a women’s watch for its iconic Galet miniature oscillating weight series. The movement is unchanged and the mechanical performance and workmanship adhere to the strict requirements. However, the case is more rounded, and the 39 mm diameter fits the female wrist more comfortably. As for the dial, LAURENT FERRIER chose mother-of-pearl, with its natural characteristics showing unique femininity. The dial is decorated with charming Arabic floral ornaments, intertwining branches or delicate embroidery. The dial is delicate and pure, with diamonds set at 12 o’clock, bright and clear.

The watch is equipped with a pin-type or double-folding clasp that matches the color of the case to achieve an overall harmony

LAURENT FERRIER exclusive movement
The LAURENT FERRIER miniature oscillating weight series ingeniously blends ancient and modern techniques, condensing a number of groundbreaking watchmaking techniques. The brand’s eccentric miniature oscillating weight automatic mechanical movement is inspired by the Abraham-Louis Breguet ‘natural’ escapement system and is the result of exclusive research and development.
High-performance winding system using traditional watch technology
The brand abandoned the excessively noisy ball bearing winding system and adopted a detent mechanism closer to traditional clockwork. The miniature oscillating weight is equipped with a single-upward gold oscillating weight, which is directly fixed between the main splint and the oscillating bridge, ensuring higher stability than the traditional miniature oscillating weight. In addition, the miniature oscillating weight uses a completely innovative silentbloc damping system. Also for the sake of optimizing the winding performance, the barrel is mounted on the gemstone. The harmonious overall structure and technical performance of the Galet miniature oscillating series watches benefit from comprehensive consideration of the integrity of each component of the movement, thereby achieving optimal control of energy. The ultimate goal is to use a more efficient automatic winding system to improve wearing comfort. FBN229.01 mechanical movement is the brand’s third exclusive handmade movement, design, assembly and adjustment are completed in the LAURENT FERRIER watchmaking workshop.
Elegant presentation
The brown Tahiti mother-of-pearl dial features multiple bronze reflections, harmonizing with the 18K red gold case. The ‘spherical’ winding crown is lightweight and set with a brown sapphire corresponding to the dial. The light blue mother-of-pearl dial is housed in an 18K white gold case with a winding crown set with a lapis lazuli. The watch is also available in a diamond-set snowflake in the middle of the case.

GALET Micro-Rotor series is available in two colors, suitable for different occasions.

Snowflake mosaic technology is unique and the workmanship is extremely fine. Carefully selected diamonds (1.23 carats) vary in size and are arranged evenly throughout the middle of the case. This technology gives the watch its unique splendor. The hollow leaf-shaped hands and the dial complement each other, making the watch softer and lighter. The ribbon strap is lined with alligator leather, and the small round texture is exquisite and elegant, making it more comfortable to wear. The 18K red or white gold pin buckle corresponding to the case color adds to the overall harmony.
Excellent finishing process
The finishing process of the movement is excellent. It is created in the LAURENT FERRIER workshop using the purest traditional watch technology. The bridge board draws the Geneva ripple, the bottom plate is stippled with concentric texture, the gear arm is beveled, the screw head is cut and polished, and the inner corner is manually cut. The pawl mirror is polished by hand, and the checkered pattern on the micro-rotor splint and bridge and the 18K pure gold micro-rotor gives the watch an extraordinary brilliance. Through the sapphire crystal back cover, the finely-crafted internal components can be seen at a glance, the lines and curves are skillfully connected, and the whole is extremely harmonious.
