Famous Watch Editors Recommend 4 Watches

1. Oris Artix GT Chronograph
    Basic data
    Multi-piece stainless steel case with a diameter of 44 mm. The black dial is equipped with an hour and minute counter. The second display window is at 9 o’clock and the date display window is at 6 o’clock. The watch uses the ETA7750 self-winding chronograph movement, which is water-resistant to 100 meters.
    The chronograph movement represents a height in the watch industry. Throughout the industry, there are not many brands with independent timing movements. Even under the reputable independent manufacturers, self-made movements with timing functions are relatively rare, because the timing movement structure is complex and requires a lot of investment. R & D with time. Therefore, nowadays, behind the luxuriant chronograph watches, the high-quality and cheap chronograph movements represented by ETA7750 and ETA2894-2 are of great help. Good design can blossom, which is a good thing for the industry. The ETA7750 movement is widely used in the design of many brands, and has become the best platform for many brands to express their creativity. Some increase the power reserve display and retrograde hands for the ETA7750, some change the position of the original small dial, or intentionally delete it. In short, a wave of transformation that does not stick to the original design is in full swing, dazzling and dizzying. The Oris Artix GT chronograph introduced by Oris is also the heir and communicator of this ETA7750 transformation trend. At first glance, the black dial seems to have only two small dials, but after careful observation, we find that the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock turns into an elongated display window, with a rotation behind the elongated window. Is pressed into a spiral-shaped sheet, so the second display becomes a telescopic red line. The linearly changing seconds dial adds a lot of fun to this watch, and at the same time allows the ETA7750 to be presented to people in a completely new look. When we look at the back of the watch, Oris’ patented red automatic tourbillon is still the same.

   2.Girard Perregaux Laureato Tourbillon Watch
   Basic data
   42.60 mm titanium case with straight-line satin matte finish and octagonal platinum bezel. This watch uses Girard-Perregaux 9600-0004 automatic winding movement, with hours, minutes and seconds display function, small seconds hand assembled in the tourbillon frame, 48 hours power reserve, 30 meters water resistance, independent numbering, limited to 10 only. The classic design is always more deeply rooted in the people than the momentary trend. Girard Perregaux with a history of more than 200 years and many classic designs is a representative of people’s timelessness. Like the Sanjin Bridge from the 19th century, it is still new today. The three bridge design uses three splints to fix the barrel, center wheel and tourbillon, respectively. This design requires that the axis of the barrel, the center wheel and the tourbillon be aligned in a straight line. Therefore, the gear arrangement is different from the traditional one. Here is a small detail that deserves your attention. The minute hand of Sanjinqiao watches is below the hour hand, which is the exact opposite of the watches you usually see. This is because the original three bridge design was located on the back of the pocket watch. In order to better reflect the beauty, the three bridge was presented on the dial, so the movement was reversed, so the arrangement of the hands was different from that of ordinary watches. Girard Perregaux Laureato three-bridge tourbillon watch has a sense of time while conveying classic elements. The three blue spinel splints are not only the embodiment of the watch’s advancement with the times, but also the finishing touch on the dial. Avant-garde fashion, without hindering the wearer to observe the movements of the movement. The tourbillon, which rotates once a minute against the blue transparent plywood, is pleasing to the eye. The tough titanium case and the octagonal platinum bezel echo the dial with a fusion of fashionable elements. The combination of tradition and modernity is really intoxicating and difficult to extricate.

   3.Glashütte Grande Cosmopolite Tourbillon watch
    Basic data
   The platinum case, with a diameter of 48 mm and a thickness of 16 mm, uses a 89-01 manual winding movement with a power reserve of 72 hours. It is limited to 25 pieces. When you first see this watch, the flying tourbillon at 12 o’clock may first attract people’s attention. But in fact, the tourbillon is just the icing on the cake for this Glashütte Grande Cosmopolite Tourbillon watch. The most outstanding feature of this watch is the perpetual calendar and world time functions displayed through multiple display windows. Glashütte has shown an upward trend in recent years. This complex-function watch that took only six years to develop is the concentrated expression of Glashütte’s technical skills. Like the usual two-hour watch, the central hand represents the local time, and the small 24-hour dial at 6 o’clock indicates the home time. Because the adjustment of the table is more complicated, we summarize its characteristics slightly. The DST window at 1 and 8 o’clock represents daylight saving time, and the STD window represents normal standard time. 2. When adjusting the area, the central pointer moves forward or backward in units of 15 minutes. 3. The perpetual calendar will move forward or backward along with the time in the second time zone. 4. 37 time zone charts are marked on the case back for easy viewing. Fifth, there is a power reserve display on the back of the manual movement. In addition, the watch also has moon phases, leap years and large calendar displays, and various time functions are available, which can be described as Glashütte’s most complicated work. Needless to say the comprehensive display function, coupled with the embellishment of the tourbillon, both functional and ornamental, make people applaud.

   4.Longines Soymia retrograde moon phase watch
    Basic data
   44mm stainless steel case, black and silver dial styles, with day, date, second and 24-hour second time zone, four retrograde functions, and moon phase and day and night display, the watch uses L707 (ETA A07 L31) self-winding movement, power reserve 48 hours, waterproof depth 30 meters.
   The retrograde pointer is a very interesting feature. Time is directional and irreversible, but the retrograde function seems to make time go backwards and return to the past in an instant, while watching the pointer slowly move back to the jumping position, waiting for the pointer to return to the original point. Let people look forward. The principle of retrograde is not complicated and it is easy to identify. When you see a mechanism similar in appearance to the ‘comma’ in the movement, even if you don’t see the dial, you can roughly judge that this is a watch with a retrograde function. This Longines Somia retrograde moon phase watch is the representative of the retrograde function, and there are 4 retrograde hands on the dial. The calendar, day of the week, second time zone, and seconds are displayed on the dial in a retrograde manner. If the retrograde display of the day of the week and calendar will make people wait too long to appreciate a hand dial, then the second hand indicated by retrograde will be a feast for the eyes. The wearer can even watch the pointer finish jumping back and forth again and again, the fun is self-evident. Throughout the entire dial, the second time zone and calendar indications are set on both sides of the edge of the dial, and the hour markers are located on the inside of the dial. It has the retrograde function and does not hinder the reading, coordination and order, the best of both worlds
