Interpreting Beautiful Crafts Tasting Athens Watch’s Original Gilt Big Fire Small Seconds Watch

The three most important pillars of the Athenian watch have been its own movement, avant-garde technology and beautiful craftsmanship. The big fire enamel is an important watchmaking technology of Athens watches. The firing process is very complicated, but the gloss of the finished product is delicate and moist. At the Geneva watch exhibition in 2018, the Athens watch once again took this classic craft as the core and launched the new Athens watch’s original gilt big fire flame small seconds watch, which combines elegant black and white colors into the wrist watch Among them, the black and white shape shows a modern gentleman style. Let’s enjoy the white dial models together. (Watch model: 3203-136-2 / E0-42)

Performing beautiful craftsmanship

    The Da Minghuo enamel dial is produced by the Donzé CadransSA enamel dial factory in the Athens Watch Company Group. Since the 1980s, Athens Watch has established a cooperative relationship with it. Until 2011, Athens Watch acquired it as a member. The process of making a large fire enamel dial is not simple. The choice of enamel powder is crucial to the finished product. Compared with a white enamel dial, black is more complicated, and it is necessary to apply carefully selected colored pigments to the base material to form a deep opaque enamel.

Watch real shot

    The 40 mm stainless steel case is polished with a polishing process. The polished case shows a fine, full gloss and a rounded arc, which is very beautiful. The side of the case is engraved with numbers, and each watch has its own unique number.

    The classic slender lugs are also polished by the polishing process to integrate with the case, and the angular design is more tough.

    The large white fire enamel dial looks deep and rich in texture, showing the brand’s exquisite arts and crafts. Black Roman numerals with elegant retro black willow-shaped hands, against the white dial, read more clearly and intuitively.

    At 6 o’clock, there is a small second hand and a round date display window, which is labeled ‘EmailGrandFeu’ (Daming fire enamel). The black and white colors collide on the dial, which is suitable for a more formal dressing style.

    Looking over the case back, you can see that the bottom of the case is fixed with six screws. Through the sapphire transparent glass case back, the operation of the UN-320 movement produced in Athens can be seen. From design to production, this movement includes the famous silicon hairspring and anchor escapement of Athens Watch, which is completely completed by the watch factory independently, and has been certified by the Athens Observatory, showing accurate and reliable quality. The oscillating weight of the movement is engraved with a unique pattern and the classic LOGO pattern of the Athenian watch, which is very delicate and beautiful.

    The watch is equipped with a black leather strap, decorated with natural cracks and black stitching, and with a stainless steel pin buckle, it is not easy to fall off when worn.

To sum up: the new big fire small seconds watch of the classic series of Athens watch, no matter from the design, or from the functionality and the reliability of the movement, it can be called excellent. If you like elegant and classic watches, this watch may be a good choice. Reference price: 8800CHF, converted into RMB is about ¥ 60000. (Picture / text watch home Wu Fengqi)


Introduction To Cartier Watchmaking Process

1904 MC movement combines technicality and aesthetics, perfectly meeting the highest requirements of Cartier watchmaking technology. This new movement with a diameter of 11 minutes has a double barrel inside, and is equipped with a precise adjustment system and a stop-second device to achieve fine adjustment of the movement and ensure accurate timing under any conditions; A ceramic ball bearing system is installed at the center of the movement wheel to ensure stable operation when subjected to strong external force. The novel pawl system replaces the traditional reversing wheel as an automatic winding mechanism, which greatly improves the winding. Speed, and the use of an innovative two-way winding system makes the movement more comfortable to wind the movement and provide kinetic energy; with the eternal pursuit of beauty, the movement’s upper bridge and the movement are decorated with classic fluency The Geneva ripple decoration (ctes de Gen & egrave; ve), even the watch face hidden under the movement parts, is still polished with a circular texture, striving for perfection and perfection.
Precise movement time, stable performance, innovative winding system, exquisite detailed design are unified in this first automatic mechanical movement developed and manufactured by Cartier. It contains Cartier’s tradition of extreme innovation for more than a century, adhering to the infinite pursuit and firm confidence in high-end watchmaking technology, which adds glory to the “pioneer of watchmaking” for more than 100 years.
