  In 1853, when public clocks were not yet widely available, the founder of the company Charles Tiffany had led the era. He erected a giant Atlas clock on the outer wall of the Tiffany & Co. boutique, which became the reference for New York standard time. . It is the activation of this clock that has given rise to the term ‘New York minutes’. ‘New York minutes’ shows New York’s unique pace and energy, and defines the time spirit of the city-not counting by the minute, but by Innovation note. In New York, a minute is not just a general measure of time. Its richness and vastness are beyond people’s original perception. There are countless wonderful things happening in one minute in New York.

Names That Can’t See The Time

People often warn themselves that everything will be deceived by looking only at the surface. In fact, the surface can express a lot of things, but sometimes, you don’t see enough of the surface.

For example, people often think of mechanical watches as the old-fashioned retro of traditional industries, and only consider quartz watches electronic watches as designers’ favorite digital avant-garde. In fact, the avant-garde of mechanical watches is endless. Regardless of its repeated innovations in movements or materials, let’s talk about the most superficial ‘surfaces’-after seeing those mechanical watches without pointers and scales, it is likely that you can’t even read the readings, you will It is known that the avant-garde and kung fu playing on the surface of mechanical watches are powerful ‘super class’.

The fun of a mechanical watch is multifaceted and multi-level. Although this time the appearance of the mainstream mechanical watch is not common in people’s impressions, and even many independent watchmaker brands, but what about this? You do n’t play mechanical watches just to watch the time! And we are not a shopping guide. Urwerk UR-210 “Maltese Falcon” satellite display watch: If you want to know how to read exactly, the process is as follows: three satellite rotors each have four hours, and Carloso is not responsible for the display during the slow rotation When the two rotors of the next hour have turned, the other rotor is driven and the next hour number is displayed.

How to look at a watch is a big problem?
Time is more than a simple scale. In the eyes of a genius, time is expressed in different ways.
It can be an MB & F HM2 SV watch that uses two dials to express time, like a retro dual-card recording. It can also be like a miniature universe, with three satellites rolling in space and rolling out their respective time readings (of course you The Urwerk satellite display watch UR-210 ‘Maltese Falcon’ is also read in conjunction with the minute display below the surface. When you are bewildered by avant-garde innovative digital products, do you think of a mechanical watch, or may it look like this?
The watch is used to watch the time, but can it have no hands, no dial, and no time-adjusted crown? Athens’ ‘Fantastic Dark Lord’ realized such a sudden whimsy. I believe that its unique time display method will undoubtedly win the true love of mechanical fans-directly using the usually mysterious and invisible movement as the time indicator! The movement is placed on a rotating base, the time can be displayed just by the movement of the movement itself, the hour marker is on the barrel, and the light escapement bridge serves as a minute indicator. But how does it go without winding the crown and time? Yan Tingpeng, general manager of the Greater China region of Athens Watch, is always happy to demonstrate this process in person: the time can be adjusted by turning the bezel, and the manual winding by turning the back cover! Each revolution is equivalent to storing 12 hours of power, with a power reserve of more than 8 days!
However, Parmigiani is a high-profile independent watchmaker brand in China. His Bugatti Super Sport is well known. Inspiration obtained in cooperation with the super sports car Bugatti Veyron, a breakthrough display of time in a vertical form-that is, the dial and the time display are 90 degrees vertical, which is not only for the driver’s convenient time reading adjustments, but also make the People admire their boldness in reversing the mechanical structure to create a new straight-cut Bugatti PF 372 movement. This world-first movement uses a double pinion system with chamfered gear trains. Through a series of complex transmissions, the dial can display time in a vertical form.
Even domestic watch brands have begun to innovate in design. The memory tourbillon watch of Fiyta looks like a tape recorder, and it even puts the tourbillon device horizontally and presents it at the same time as the time display. When the two display windows are running at different speeds, it is easy to think of how the tape recorder works.

Must be ‘difficult to read’
The shape system has always been for content services. Especially the traditional watchmaking industry that focuses on real life. The surface that most people find difficult to understand actually has values ​​that are obviously not difficult to understand.
If you don’t talk about people, these watchmakers with ideals, of course, want to create a unique way of expressing time. Let people know at a glance that this is their own product. If you want to talk about people, then this imagination and expression of time can achieve reality with superb skills. The most obvious thing is that it is a symbol of strength. We just said that the avant-garde and ‘super class’ of traditional mechanical watches playing on the ‘surface’ requires deep skill. Otherwise, how dare to break the traditional structure of the watch at will, but still maintain the excellent performance of the watch? It is expensive to develop a new movement, not to mention a movement that has to adapt to a unique design instead of sharing costs.
Although the introduction in this issue is not common in the general mainstream market, there are many ways to play watches. Sitting in the sun and watching snowflake-paved diamonds is a kind of dog’s eye. It is also a kind of watching a wonderful movement with a magnifying glass. You can afford the exclusive enjoyment of the watch, and those who ca n’t afford the watch can also enjoy it together and see how many whimsical ideas can be put into practice. Ah Q said that many amazing genius designs are limited to no more than 10 pieces, which is impossible for most people to own, but the significance of beautiful things is not to own them.
Just like hard-to-wear but charming high-heeled shoes, it is not for you to go a long way, nor are you going to play mechanical watches just to watch time. These difficult-to-read mechanical watches have a clear attitude that allows you to carefully study the rhythmic beauty of its structural mechanism. How can you see it at a glance!
