Oris Introduces Two New Sports Chronographs

Within a week, Europa Star World was informed of two new Oris chronograph models, both dedicated to the racing world, one to celebrate a long history Car rally, another watch inspired by modern racing cars.
To commemorate the collaboration with the Swiztzerland-Paris Classic Classic Rally, Oris has specially produced a limited edition of Oris RAID 2012 chronograph, limited to 500 pieces. Such an outstanding watch is by no means just acting as a deputy. Although vehicles must complete navigation and regularity tests at various stages and special stages at relatively low average speeds, penalties for deviations in planned arrival times based on average speeds are severe. The difference of one tenth of a second between the two methods results in penalties, which means that you must keep a close eye on timing and compete with competitors for the chance of winning.

 Oris RAID 2012 Chronograph

Oris’s design is inspired by last year’s Raid winning car-the Cadillac 62 series in 1942. This vintage Cadillac dial features a circle of Arabic numerals around the dial, including chronograph devices at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, and a 24-hour hand on the dial’s inner ring to indicate the second time zone. The watch is made of stainless steel with anti-reflective coating sapphire crystal and leather strap with folding buckle. The back of the case is printed with the Swiss-Paris RAID logo.
Although the Oris Artix GT watch has the same metal design and the same case as the RAID 2012 chronograph, it is special in that it has a bidirectional rotating black ceramic bezel and a black rubber strap with minute scales The outer layer is covered with black rubber with tooth pattern design, which is easy to rotate and adjust, all of which make this watch have a more modern side. In addition, Oris has developed a special small seconds device. The red line at 9 o’clock displays the seconds linearly. It is inspired by the speed counter of modern racing cars.

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.

   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.

“The 21st Century Is The Era Of Asian Brands” Watch House Dialogue Seiko Watch Designer Okuyama Kiyoshi

On August 1, 2019, SEIKO (Seiko) ‘s world’s first Prospex store opened in Ginza, Tokyo. The famous Japanese designer Okuyama Kiyoshi attended the press conference. Aoshan Qingxing has been involved in many fields such as automobiles and furniture. Among the brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, all of his design works are from him. This time, Mr. Okuyama Kiyoshi collaborated with the well-known Japanese watch brand SEIKO (Seiko) to design the Prospex LX series watch, which officially entered the watch industry. The Watch House was fortunate to have interviewed him at the press conference that day, and had an in-depth discussion on his watch design concept and the development direction of the brand.

Interview with industrial designer Mr. Okuyama Kiyoshi

The new LX series new watch developed by SEIKO (Seiko) and Mr. Kiyosu Okuyama
Watch House: You have well-known design works in many fields such as automobiles. What made you decide to cooperate with Seiko to develop a new generation of Seiko Prospex LX watches?
Okuyama Kiyoshi: I have lived in Europe for many years before, and I have also been exposed to many watches. Most of the more well-known high-end watch brands come from Europe. But Japan’s Seiko watches are excellent in both technology and quality. More than 50 years ago, Seiko and Rolex had the same brand value and sales were comparable. But perhaps because of marketing, Rolex is getting better and better, and Seiko’s high-end watches have only begun to improve in recent years. As a Japanese, I feel very sorry. It’s like a natural beauty, but because she doesn’t like dressing up, she hides her style. This is a great loss. Seiko is a typical example. So I was very happy when I received an invitation to participate in the design of Seiko watches. Asian brands have always been committed to making good products at low prices, but there are very few high-end products. I hope that I can do my part to develop and build Seiko watches into high-end watch brands, so that high-end brands in Asia can also be known worldwide.
Watch House: You have cross-border design experience in many fields. What is the biggest challenge for you in participating in watch design?
Aoyama Kiyoyo: The quality of Seiko watches is very good, but the products are updated quickly, making it difficult for consumers to grasp the specific positioning of the brand. The design theme of the Prospex LX watch this time is ‘Inheritance and Innovation’. When I design, I not only stand in the perspective of the appearance of new products, but also stand in the perspective of consumers to adjust and improve the product. Each brand has its own brand culture and value. While pursuing innovation, it is even more necessary to retain and continue the essence and tradition of the brand. New products are bound to require some innovation. Need to inherit the connotation and heritage.
Watch House: I heard that you are a fan of Gundam. You used Gundam elements when designing the Ferrari ENZO. Is that so? Did you also include some unique designs for this Prospex LX watch?
Okuyama Kiyoshi: (laughs) Yes, I am a member of the Gundam generation. In the bezel and lug part of the Prospex LX watch, reference is made to the body structure of Gundam as inspiration. ENZO’s roof is actually designed in accordance with the Gundam core fighter.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Gundam, and now I am also designing a new Gundam, and will release animations and models in October this year. Seiko and Gundam actually launched a joint watch this year, which surprised me.

Mr. Okuyama Kiyoshi drew a sketch of Ferrari ENZO at the scene and shared the top design of ENZO

Aoyama Kiyuki first took a group photo with SEIKO (SEIKO) Chairman of China
Watch House: You are both a designer and a watch wearer. When you choose a watch, which characteristics of the watch do you pay more attention to?
Aoyama Clearing: In fact, the selection of the table is the same as the selection of the car. Some people pay attention to appearance and others value performance. I have a deep relationship with Seiko. The first watch I bought in high school was Seiko. The diving watch I bought after college was also Seiko. After I fell in love with diving, I still choose Seiko’s diving watch. And the watches my grandfather used, as well as the gifts my father left me, are also Seiko watches. Every important moment in my life seems to have the appearance of Seiko. So for me, buying a watch is not just a ‘buy’, it is more like a commemorative. For example, I buy a watch every time I design a new work, I can think of it whenever I see this watch Since then.
Watch House: In what areas do you want to try later? Will you continue to design new works in the field of watches?
Okuyama Clear Bank: If the needs of consumers are roughly divided into two types: one is ‘needs’ (necessities) and the other is ‘wants’ (luxury). Asian brands are good at making ‘needs’, but not good at ‘wants’ (those that aren’t very much needed and very much wanted). People like to buy happiness. In addition to the necessities of life, they are also willing to spend a lot of money to buy those luxury goods they want. But in Asia today, there are not many high-end brands belonging to ‘wants’. Everyone is usually saying, ‘The 21st century is the era of Asia.’ So I will pay more attention to the ‘wants’ aspect in addition to the design of the products themselves. I will continue to work with Seiko because Seiko is already one of the few manufacturers in the Asian market with the ability to build high-end brands. This is also the direction I will work hard in the future.
Summary: The Japanese Seiko brand has always been known for integrity and quality, and Seiko has always been a leader in terms of function and design. This year, the brand also opened its first independent store for the Prospex series, hoping to give fans of Seiko watches a better choice and service. If you are interested in Seiko watches, you might as well try it on and feel better.

The Essence Of Design And Watch Art The New Glashütte Watch Real Shot

[Watch House Basel Special Report] The Basel Watch Fair has begun. Watch House will bring you the latest watch information and pictures from the exhibition site. The brand’s high-definition beautiful pictures are presented first, and let’s feel the atmosphere of the scene together.
   This year Glashütte Original pays tribute to the brand’s traditional watchmaking with another great work, the PanoLunarTourbillon watch. With a revolutionary design, this watch adds aura to the new Pano collection, which was launched last year. As the latest masterpiece of the brand’s Art & Technik series, this treasure attracts the attention of connoisseurs with its modern dial arrangement and flying tourbillon decorated with filigree.

  At Baselworld last year, Glashütte Original reinterpreted several models of the Pano series with a modern design: the use of a larger cylindrical case with a more delicate and elegant case outer ring, to make the dial visual The effect is enlarged. At this year’s Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show, PanoLunarTourbillon debuted with a perfectly elegant new look: a 40mm red gold case and a warm silver dial. The unique asymmetric design of the Pano series places the larger hour / minute hands on the left side of the dial, aligned with the flying tourbillon at 7 o’clock. The new large calendar window at the bottom right is displayed with black numerals and ivory white as the background, perfectly complementing the warm silver dial. The moon phase on the upper right shows a three-dimensional silver moon and stars embedded in the dark blue night sky. The settings of the various functions of the dial are in line with the golden section, also known as the golden ratio. This legendary harmonious aesthetic law has been sought after by artists, architects and musicians in the past.

   The flying tourbillon that appeared in 1920 was invented by master watchmaker Alfred Helwig. One of Germany’s most famous watchmakers, he was a tutor at the German watchmaking school in 1913. Traditional tourbillons need to have two fixed points above and below to compensate for the errors caused by the gravity of the watch. The tourbillon designed by Alfred Helwig uses a cantilever mechanism to fix the tourbillon at only one point, and its design has earned it the reputation of a flying tourbillon. In the design of the flying tourbillon, the balance wheel, pawl lever and escapement wheel group are assembled in a cantilever frame, and each rotation is one minute, which exactly offsets the time error caused by the gravity. To this day, the flying tourbillon is still a world-class invention that is astonishing in both aesthetics and watchmaking. On the flying tourbillon of the new PanoLunarTourbillon watch, the seconds are displayed with a small blue steel seconds hand. The sapphire crystal anti-reflective glass on the surface and the back protects the dial and the harmonious aesthetics of the dial and the mechanical mechanism of the flying tourbillon reveals its beauty in front of people.
