The head of the family is easier said than done! While dealing with busy things, I always care about my family. Fathers who often need to travel around need to plan, accurately grasp the place of departure and the time at the place, overcome the spatial and temporal barriers, and keep close contact with their families. LANGE 1 TIME ZONE, father’s caring thing.
LANGE 1 TIME ZONE
LANGE 1 has been Lange’s masterpiece since its launch, and has received much praise. Lange’s watchmakers are very thoughtful and have considered the issue of changing time zones more than a hundred years ago, and are committed to developing clocks that can display two time zones. Since the earth is a planet that rotates, the sunshine time varies from place to place. As early as 1884, countries around the world have divided the earth into 24 time zones through an agreement to coordinate the time difference. However, jet lag will inevitably bother travelers. Today, Lange adds the complicated function of the second time zone display on the basis of the LANGE 1 series to create a LANGE 1 TIME ZONE watch, allowing the wearer to accurately grasp the time no matter where he is, so that the world will be closer .
LANGE 1 TIME ZONE is based on the principle of practical restraint. The watch has two large and one eccentric dials. The large dial shows the time of departure and the small dial shows the time of the location. The LANGE 1 TIME ZONE design is easy to use, and generally requires only one simple step per operation. To set the local time, just press the button to turn the City Ring. Each time the wearer presses the button at 8 o’clock, the pointer will increase by one hour, and the city circle will rotate to the corresponding time zone. The watch is also equipped with special devices to facilitate the exchange of time between the two places. The wearer only needs to press the time zone button to stop the small dial operation, and then twist the crown to adjust the time of the large dial. The large dial and large date display will show the local time. The departure time is shown in golden Roman numerals, while the local time is shown in Arabic numerals. The two contrast strongly to avoid confusion. Allows the wearer to accurately grasp the time in his hometown and places no matter where he is.
LANGE 1 TIME ZONE design is mature and stable, mature and stable
The watch also has an intimate design-dual day / night display. The time in 24 time zones is different, and the day and night are naturally different. It is important to know the difference between day and night in the two places. LANGE 1 TIME ZONE has a day / night display at the departure time and the local timetable. The light / dark two parts show the current moments of the two places. It is easy to travel between day and night.
Such ingenious functions work smoothly, thanks to the Lange L031.1 manual winding movement hidden under a 41.9mm 18K yellow, rose or platinum case. The movement is equipped with a dual mainspring barrel that provides a power reserve of more than three days. Large date display, screw-fastened gold sleeve, gooseneck-type fine-tuning device and hand-carved balance wheel plywood, everything is clearly visible under the perspective of the sapphire crystal case back. With a hand-stitched crocodile leather strap and solid gold or platinum Lange clasp, it is mature and stable.

Next, let’s enjoy a watch from the Compaq series, an L2.2126.96.36.199 watch worth 44,000 yuan.
L2.2188.8.131.52 is a women’s watch, which uses the material of gold to set off the beauty of women, and embellishes it with diamonds. Although the material of the gold is very luxurious, it is not as vulgar as the luxurious pure gold. Its dial is made of mother-of-pearl. The color is not white but reveals a natural beauty. The 12 o’clock hour markers are also realized by diamond inlay. Wear it on your hands, and you will be as cool as a knight on a racetrack.

Since its establishment in 1839, Patek Philippe has always been committed to defending the superb craftsmanship of watchmaking arts, creating timepieces that bloom from the inside out, and shaping them into extremely fascinating and rare treasures. A good example of this is Patek Philippe’s new women’s watch, Twenty ~ 4® High Jewellery Watch Ref. 4909/110, which was launched at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show 2014. In it, we can see that the strength of Patek Philippe jewelry craftsmen is comparable to the world’s top jewelry families. This exquisite craftsmanship is everywhere, whether it is innovative and bold design, extraordinary quality, carefully arranged gems, or the traditional bead setting, bead setting, gridless paving or complex and bold invisibility used to set these gems Mosaic process.
徜徉 Twenty ~ 4® High Jewelry Watch in the Ocean of Diamonds Ref. 4909/110, sharing 1937 diamonds and sapphire to decorate the dial, case, bracelet, and buckle, creating a poetic ‘aquatic life’ pattern. All gems are of the highest quality and are perfectly cut, including baguette diamonds with top Wesselton flawless white diamonds, and sapphire sparkling deep blue. The total weight of these stones is about 43.73 carats, which was carefully conceived by the creative department of Pattaya, and then created by its jewellery craftsmen in accordance with a long tradition of craftsmanship. Sapphire fish of all sizes swim freely in the ocean of diamonds.
The slightly curved 18K white gold case flanks the bracelet and the bracelet sparkles with brilliant diamonds. The diamonds on the case are arranged in a delicate fan pattern, and each diamond must be cut into a corresponding shape according to its position. The baguette diamonds on the front of the bracelet and on the dial are invisible. This process is considered to be the most difficult setting technique, and it is also the most risky setting method for gem setting masters. To ensure that all diamonds are perfectly side-by-side and do not flash the platinum luster of the parts or case and bracelet used for setting, the gem setter must grind a narrow groove in the bottom facet of each baguette. Each groove corresponds to the slender gold buckle on the surface of the bracelet and case, which is used to hold and fix the gemstone. The position of these clasps for fixing the gemstones must exactly match the fine grooves of the diamond, not only between centimeters, so as to ensure that the gemstones that are set are perfectly adjacent to each other and tightly connected. Then, the blue fish made of deep blue sapphire is embedded in this diamond ocean. The smaller fish is made from a single oval-cut sapphire and is set with a rose gold base. The larger fish is composed of multiple brightly-cut sapphires and fixed with a rose gold bead setting process, depicting the outline and scales of the fish. Because the high-quality white diamonds are inlaid under the sapphire, the sparkle of the diamond can be seen through the blue fish body, highlighting its bright and rich colors. In addition, the 855 small brilliant-cut diamonds (approximately 1.7 carats) set on the bracelet links also shine brightly.
The well-trimmed 16-250 movement is a manually wound mechanical movement that displays its charm with the help of a sapphire crystal caseback. The edges of the two plywood and the balance plywood are rounded and polished. Its surface is decorated with Geneva stripes. Bright red gem bearings bring beautiful colors to the movement, while the balance, sun gear and engraving on the splint exude a golden luster. Of course, the most important thing is that this is a mechanical movement built according to the highest watchmaking standards, highlighting its powerful features: the balance wheel vibrates at 28,000 half pendulums (4 Hz) per hour, The half pendulum is transmitted to the escape wheel, and then the pulse of each swing is transmitted to the third gear via the fourth gear, and then transmitted to the sun gear and hour gear driving the minute and hour hands in turn. Two Patton hands and 18K rose gold three-dimensional Roman numerals (XII and VI) at 12 and 6 o’clock are also typical design features of this Patek Philippe iconic Twenty ~ 4® women’s watch series.
‘Rare Craftsmanship’ and Patek Philippe
175 years ago, when Mr. Patek founded Patek Philippe, he set a clear goal: ‘Make the most exquisite top-quality timepieces in the world.’ This creed clearly defines the timepiece, and the real-time watch is the combination of its internal mechanical life and external image. This vision has not changed so far and has been recorded in the norms of the Patek Philippe Seal. Therefore, Patek Philippe has never restricted itself to watchmaking since its creation. Numerous extremely professional processes that can enhance the beauty of the movement and the case are also the focus of our attention. These include techniques such as enamel painting, filigree enamel, infill enamel, relief and line engraving, carving patterns, and jeweller and gem setting. In the 20th century, as the public’s demand for beautifully decorated timepieces diminished, the group of artisans with extraordinary skills gradually decreased. Only Patek Philippe insisted on inviting these artisans to continue working for the brand. Even if the final work is unappreciated and can only be included in the private collection of the Stein family who controls the company, Patek Philippe has never given up these rare crafts. Today, some of these works are exhibited in the Patek Philippe Museum and are highly praised. They are of great value, even if they are worthless. But perhaps the most noteworthy is that thanks to the unremitting efforts of Patek Philippe, these lasting master craftsmen were able to pass on their skills and experience to the younger generation, leaving their precious craftsmanship knowledge for today and tomorrow. These rare craftsmanship represents a cultural heritage, without which the Swiss watchmaking industry would never have been possible today.
