The ‘gold’ Autumn Dream, Jacques De Lore’s Exclusive Interpretation Of The Charm Of Gold Foil Carved Enamel

When the fallen leaves cover everything with a layer of golden color, the enchanting posture of autumn can be fully exhibited. In our impression, there seems to be a constant connection between autumn and gold. The color of gold foil seems to be the mediator between the two. When shiny gold foil and elegant and noble enamel enamels, the Jacques Droe gold leaf enamel watch series was created.
   The gold foil carving process is inherited from the Renaissance gold and silver craftsmen, that is, using subtle gold foil leaves and placing them one by one with smart and meticulous methods to form relief patterns. It is then supplemented with a very fine enamel process to obtain the desired hue and the deepness of the translucent enamel, which makes the sun rays decorate. As early as the 18th century, the skilled craftsmen of Jacques de Ronaldo had the highest attainment of the gold leaf enamel craft. Today, the master watchmakers in La Chaux-de-Font’s art workshop continue to inherit this decoration technology that has been passed down for nearly three centuries, and still adhere to the meticulous attitude to complete these masterpieces of extremely difficult watches.

Autumn is strong, maple leaves are red-Jacques de Loire gold leaf enamel hour and minute dial dial Only Watch
   The colors of autumn are nothing more than two colors, brilliant gold and moving red. Knowing the beauty of autumn day, Jacques de Lo presents this gold leaf engraved enamel hour and minute dial Only Watch on the occasion of the Only Watch charity auction, decorated with a gold leaf engraving process and decorated with a 43 mm diameter 18K gold case, and It is paired with a dark red Grand Feu enamel dial to set off an autumn scene.
   This color tone is extremely difficult to fire, and the large fire enamel dial needs to be calcined several thousand times before it can bloom its final light. Only long-term trained professional eyes can see whether the enamel color is completely harmonious; only the hands as dexterous as a surgeon can accurately place the gold foil composition pattern on the translucent enamel, which is superb in Jacques Dro Under the process, one by one.
   However, the pursuit of excellence by the artisans of Jacques Dro is not limited to the appearance and decoration. For the first time, the brand has applied silicon hairsprings to small time-dials dials. The sapphire crystal case back is engraved with the ‘unique piece Only Watch 2015’ inscription. Through the case back, you can enjoy the beauty of the movement. This unique timepiece is elegant and elegant, bringing together the brand’s unique decorative elements, whether it is curved lugs, top hand-rolled alligator leather straps, or 18K yellow gold integrated pin buckle, showing luxury.

A clear blue sky-Jacques de Roth engraved with gold leaf
   The azure blue and bright golden light complement each other, and the gold foil carved enamel that embodies the essence of Jacques Dro’s handmade skills, boldly blooms on these three limited edition exclusive watches.
   The dial of the Petite HeureMinute watch with a diameter of 39 mm, the pocket watch with a diameter of 50 mm, and the dial of the Grande Seconde watch with a diameter of 43 mm, which has recently adopted this technology, are delicate and exquisitely composed. The skilled artisans in La Chaux-de-Fon’s art workshop use circular graphics to interpret Jacques Dero’s favorite flower world. The blue-steel hands and blue dial echo each other, and the red gold case with a black or blue crocodile leather strap complements the glittering gold foil carving.
   All three watches are limited to 8 pieces. They are not only the perfect expression of the exquisite craftsmanship of the Jacques Dro Art Workshop, but also the latest proof of the beauty of human hand-made beyond time.

The Lange Brand New Moon Phase Watch Patented Layer Presents The Blue And Lifelike Galaxy World

A. Lange & Söhne’s new Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase moon phase display occupies a prominent position on the main dial, and can accurately run for 122.6 years. The patented coating of the moon phase disc brings a vivid blue galaxy shape to this astronomical complex, which is striking.

                Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase Watch (Rose Gold)

 The moon is a fascinating celestial body. Since ancient times, the moon has taught countless astronomers. It affects tidal effects, climate stability, and the laws of life of many organisms and plants. Because of this, many watch enthusiasts have a crush on the moon phase display. Since the return of Lange’s reputation, the Saxony brand has launched no less than twelve watches with moon phase display. However, the moon phase design of the new Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase is the most eye-catching ever. This astronomical display has a large space on the main dial and is connected to the hour wheel, so it can closely follow the actual trajectory of the moon, and constantly move like the moon. The increase is very subtle and difficult to detect with the naked eye.

 In addition, the moon phase display reproduces the time between two new moons with an accuracy rate of 99.9978 percent. The average length of the new moon is 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 3 seconds. For simplicity, typical moon phase displays mostly reduce this period to 29.5 days, causing a deviation of 44 minutes and 3 seconds for each lunar month, and within a short period of two and a half years, an entire day of error will form. Fortunately, the seven-gear transmission of the Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase has more accurate calculation capabilities, resulting in a deviation of less than one minute per cycle. If the settings are correct and the watch is always running, the moon phase display will only need to be adjusted for one day after 122.6 years. Assuming that the watch has not been wound for a long time, the wearer can also adjust the display at any time by pressing the buttons on the outside of the case (between 7 and 8 o’clock).

 Lange-made L095.3 movement

 Lange’s product R & D personnel are committed to making a solid gold moon phase disk coating, which fully reflects the brand’s spirit of perfection. When depicting the night sky, image truth is the primary goal. After in-depth research and development, the brand finally obtained a patented coating technology, showing gorgeous colors and clear texture details to achieve the highest aesthetic standards. The interference effect caused by the overlapping of light waves cancels out all the non-blue spectrum of incident sunlight, and presents a clear blue scene in front of the viewer. Then, the watchmaker will use laser to cut out more than 300 stars of various sizes and sharp lines to form a miniature galaxy world.

 The Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase combines the eccentric dial, large calendar display and the perfect movement made by the watchmaker, to capture the features of Lange’s most famous watch series. A power reserve of up to 72 hours is propelled by a mainspring alone, making the movement less than 4.7 mm thick. The delicate case is available in rose gold, yellow gold and platinum, with a diameter of 41.0 mm. The Lange-made L095.3 caliber combines all traditional functions, including classic screw balances, balance springs independently developed by Lange, 3/4 plywood made of untreated German silver, and hand-crafted The movement components allow global connoisseurs to take a closer look at Lange watches while embodying Saxony’s watchmaking craftsmanship and precision technology.
