Piaget Altiplano 38 mm 900P-the world’s thinnest mechanical watch
   To celebrate the 140th anniversary of Piaget Piaget, the brand has launched this new Piaget Altiplano 38 mm 900P ultra-thin watch that rewrites the future of ultra-thin premium watches. This watch is currently the world’s thinnest mechanical watch. No matter how Piaget will develop in the ultra-thin field in the future, this watch will be an important masterpiece and worthy of collection.

   The production process of this ultra-thin masterpiece took a full three years. The watchmaker, case craftsman and designer cooperated in every stage of research and development, production, adjustment and retouching, which led to the birth of the Piaget Altiplano 38 mm 900P. . In the process, each of the technical and aesthetic decisions affects each other and the lips and teeth are interdependent. Piaget Altiplano 38 mm 900P’s 145 parts are all reduced to the smallest size. The smallest part is only slightly thicker than the diameter of the hair. Some gears are thinner to only 0.12 mm (the thickness of the classic movement is 0.20 mm). The gap between the parts also needs to be carefully calculated. During the design, the position of each part is delicately arranged, with an accuracy of one hundredth of a millimeter, so that the fixed parts and the moving parts are perfectly joined to ensure that the moving parts can move smoothly, thereby ensuring the machine. The core operates smoothly.

The most eye-catching is the first bronze watch, although this is not the first watch made of bronze. , But the unique watch will still be remembered. If you missed Panerai’s 507, then don’t miss this ocean time of IWC.

More watch details: This year’s Vacheron Constantin’s new watches are mainly focused on two aspects, one is hollow, and the other is an art watch. The watch that occupies these two elements is almost synonymous with expensive watches, and it is really weak for ordinary consumers. Fortunately, Vacheron Constantin has not neglected its own entry models. The famous Maltese series has added four new products this year, three for women and one for men. Among them, this white gold case with a black crocodile leather strap men’s Maltese watch must have attracted the attention of many men.

More watch details: BLANC DE CARTIER watch-the latest standard of Bai Fumei
   Cartier launched a total of more than 100 new products this year, and the number of new products ranked first among all brands, which is admirable. These more than a hundred new products cover almost all levels of the brand’s product line, from the initial entry-level models to the top luxury products, there are many new products to choose from. In this new product, a diamond-shaped female watch similar to the blue balloon style is impressive. This is the BALLON BLANC DE CARTIER watch, which everyone calls ‘white balloon’. Cartier has perfectly combined his housekeeping skills with the watch. This flashing ‘white balloon’ is completely the latest standard for Bai Fumei.

                  BALLON BLANC DE CARTIER
   It’s quite similar but slightly different. Like a comet, the Ballon Blanc de Cartier watch fell into the Cartier workshop on a full moon night and was reborn in the case of the Ballon de Cartier watch. Cartier jewelry and the essence of watchmaking blend with each other, creating precious, delicate, feminine charm, and sometimes playful jewelry watches. Light as if without weight, this watch turns classic design elements into its own and creates a new look, like a woman changing her makeup. The case still maintains a charming pebble shape, like a precious powder box. The guilloché mother-of-pearl dial, sword-shaped blue-steel hands—the iconic elements of the Ballon de Cartier collection are absent. The Roman numerals and minute track are slightly off track to highlight a dazzling diamond set at 4 o’clock.
More watch details: One of the themes of this SIHH watch exhibition is astronomy, and this theme is Van Cleef & Arpels’Midnight Planétarium Poetic Complication poetic complication watch. In the dial, miniature images of the six planets orbiting the sun in real time are outlined. A meteor in the dial represents time, and then people who see this watch no longer care which one indicates time, and have long been astonished by the fantasy and exquisite watches.

More watch details: As the top watch brand within the Richemont Group, Lange naturally will not disappoint. The newly launched ultra-complex watch, equipped with trajectory moon phase display, perpetual calendar with Lange large calendar display, 14-day power reserve and constant power escapement system, is the pinnacle of Saxony’s watchmaking technology. The most fascinating is the moon phase display on the case back movement, which is Lange’s latest creation, which depicts the moon phase display of the trajectory of the earth, the moon and the solar constellation between the square inches. If Van Cleef & Arpels showed us the romantic side of the universe, Lange wanted to show the universe’s vastness and vastness. Even if someone buys such a watch, is it destined to lie in a safe.

More watch details: As mentioned above, Lange’s ultra-long-powered moon phase perpetual calendar watch, even if purchased, must be stored in a safe, on the one hand because it is expensive, and on the other hand if it is It’s really troublesome to wear, it’s a little too heavy. Of course, we will be tolerant of the thickness of ultra-complicated watches. After all, it is understandable to construct such complicated functions in a square inch. And Jaeger-LeCoultre did not lead everyone to ‘love’, and they successfully competed with themselves. In their words, they were far-sighted and tireless, bringing everyone a flying tourbillon ultra-thin master series three-question watch, this is equipped with flying tourbillon The minute repeater watch is only 7.9 mm thick, making it the thinnest of its kind. If you have the ability to buy a top watch, then this is worth recommending, because it is a watch that is suitable for wearing, in addition to the essence of watch art.
