Watch Treasures Condensing Technology And Artistic Creation

The Earl Tourbillon Appreciation Exhibition was held in the Shanghai store from July 24 to July 31. This time, Piaget brought the most representative models of the brand tourbillon family to Chinese watch enthusiasts for the first time, enabling a large number of watch fans to experience these cohesive technologies and artistic creations for the first time. Watch treasures.
   Piaget’s ‘Comparative Tourbillon Watch’ was launched in 2006 as the most special complicated function. It is equipped with a manual winding movement of the 608P flying tourbillon developed by Piaget and revolutionized the titanium tourbillon frame in the minute hand. At the end, it makes one revolution every minute, and the revolutions are performed synchronously with the minute hand running on the dial in a regular circle. This innovative mechanism has enabled Piaget to create an extraordinary position in the field of tourbillons that has made its peers stand out.
    In order to make the tourbillon frame at the end of the large minute hand have the characteristics of light weight and balanced operation, the tourbillon is specially composed of three titanium metal parts, which saves weight and inherits Piaget’s introduction of new technology materials in the tourbillon movement. tradition of.
    The decoration and polishing of the surface of the movement is also consistent with Piaget’s insistence: the board and the bridge are rounded and chamfered, the sides are polished by hand, and the blue steel screws and Geneva wave pattern are used. .
   Enamel painting is an art that requires skill and ingenuity, a game of color and temperature, a strict double requirement of art and craftsmanship, and one of the most fascinating arts in a century. The preparation of enamel from the coloring material is extremely complicated and time-consuming. The glass powder of enamel and various metal oxides need to be blended in precise proportions to show the color. The previous layer of coloring material needs to be fired at a high temperature of 800 degrees Celsius and repeated operations to achieve the predetermined color.
   However, even if the painter has a proud artistic talent, the difficulty of enamel painting is that even slight differences in temperature can make a huge difference in the color of the enamel after firing, which is an artificially difficult factor to control, so the failure rate is extremely high. Only a handful of painters in the world are familiar with this technique, which also makes enamel painting a unique artistic expression of top art.
