High-precision mechanical watches are always very fragile. Dangers from various parties may cause damage to the watch, and the biggest threat to the movement is vibration. And for those enthusiasts who like to wear watches to engage in various sports, it is especially important to get a ‘shockproof’ watch that is as stable as Mount Tai.
The international requirements for an ‘earthquake-resistant’ watch are very strict. It must pass various rigorous tests to be named ‘earthquake-resistant’. Wearing them, you can enjoy golf, skiing, tennis and other sports while retaining the love watch on your wrist, so that time and sports are perfectly integrated. Today Xiaobian recommends to you these ‘earthquake-resistant’ watches that are as stable as Mount Tai.
Glashütte Seismic Watch
Seismic system: special materials
格拉 This watch that Glashütte has tailor-made for golfers in the London Olympics can be said to be a typical representative of earthquake-resistant watches. It is important to know that the instantaneous impact of a golf swing on a golf movement can be fatal to the damage of an ordinary watch movement. This watch uses a uniquely developed elastic material. The four cushioning elements made between the movement and the case absorb at least 60% of the external impact, which ensures the machine even under strong impact. The stable operation and precise travel time of the core. Boer astronomy orbit space chief series
Seismic system: Amortiser
This is an innovative watch from Bolt at the Baselworld 2010. This watch subverted the seismic standards of all mechanical watches at the time. It not only reaches the level worn by astronauts, but also a rare ski-specific watch, and these are derived from a magical and great earthquake-resistant system-BALL Amortiser.
This wonderful micro-mechanical device consists of two parts: first, the anti-magnetic protection ring wraps the movement, while reducing the shock to the movement. Second, the ‘rotating table top locking device’. This system protects the movement against shocks from both the front and sides. Whether flying into space or playing golf, the wearer can choose to lock the watch rudder to prevent the ‘auto-rotating watch’ that is swinging from being suddenly shaken and affected. I have to say that this is a practical and interesting technology.
Panerai PAM252 Arctic Adventure Memorial Table
Seismic system: Incabloc
This is a reliable watch that can be worn around the Arctic Circle. It was created by Panerai in order to sponsor an explorer to “circle” the Arctic. Panerai PAM252 uses a shock absorber called Incabloc, which is an anti-seismic measure commonly used by Swiss watch factories. It uses a set of vertebral gems and auxiliary brackets to complete the anti-seismic effect. In addition, the 42-hour power reserve and the Swiss Official Observatory (C.O.S.C) certification are also symbols of practicality and precision.
Rolex Explorer II
Seismic system: Paraflex
This watch uses Paraflex shock absorbers developed exclusively by Rolex. This shock absorber has 50% more impact resistance than the previous shock absorber KIF. In addition, this Rolex also uses Parachrom balance springs. This hairspring is made of a paramagnetic alloy, which is not only affected by magnetic fields, but also has ten times more shock resistance.
Jaermann & Stübi series
Jaermann & Stübi, a niche brand specializing in the manufacture of golf watches, this Hole in One series of watches not only is equipped with a professional shockproof system, but also has a patented technology tailored for golf Sophisticated golf ball accumulator, showing the number of shots per hole, the central hand showing the total score, the rotatable bezel to compare the handicap of each round, and the retrograde hand at 6 o’clock, showing the number of holes in the current game. This is a very interesting and practical sports watch.
TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Limited Edition Chronograph
Anti-seismic system: composite vibration filtering device
TAG Heuer’s first watch with advanced shock-absorbing movement protection released in 2009. Its unique tubular design and advanced anti-vibration protection accessories are inspired by GT racing technology. The watch is powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 36 movement. The device can be clearly seen through the mirror and the sapphire crystal case back. The design from TAG Heuer’s newly-developed R & D department is light and transparent. The polished black PVD-coated case (based on the Monaco V4 case) uses accessories inside the sky and racing field with super-vibration-resistant composite shock-absorbing materials The vibration on the movement is absorbed by multiple support arms, and then directly transmitted to the composite vibration filtering device, which can absorb the vibration energy emitted by the well.
Cartier ID ONE concept watch
Seismic system: Niobium-titanium case and carbon crystal frame
The Cartier ID ONE concept watch, which does not need to be adjusted for life, has another set of shock absorption. The highly elastic niobium-titanium alloy is used as the case to offset the external impact, and the escapement is wrapped in a carbon crystal frame. This keeps this important part in a sturdy protective case. After rigorous testing with an impact equivalent of 4,500 grams, ID ONE is as accurate as ever. This standard is much higher than the 3,000 grams of impact equivalent that ordinary seismic watches can withstand.
