The Temptation Of Gold Pure Gold Watch Tasting Zenith

Zenith is a very compatible brand. Its watch style is full of various mechanical elements, and naturally it is outstanding in appearance. Zenith watches are known worldwide for their precise timing. In other words, buying Zenith watches, if you do not choose a watch with a chronograph function, it will be a lifetime regret.

 This Zenith watch uses an automatic movement, which makes it impossible to look away at first glance. If the watch looks like a beauty, then this watch will become the object of chase for many men. Official model: 18.0526.4039 / 01.M526

If you are interested in complex functional watches. Then you must not miss this, because this watch not only has very powerful functions and movement, but also has a luxurious appearance as an advantage, which can be described as the essence.

 This watch is fully armed and made of 18K gold precious metal. Such watches are actually rare. Most of the gold watches in daily life come with metallic luster, and the surface of this watch is frosted, allowing the essence to bloom quietly on the wrist.

 18.0526.4039 / 01.M526 The five-pointed star of the watch is the logo of Zenith. Perhaps the Zenith family originated from a star in space and fell into the world to become a famous watch brand in the world. Such a logo on the crown is undoubtedly a crowning of consumer identity.

 18.0526.4039 / 01.M526 case back with a transparent bottom design, it is worth mentioning that Zenith wrapped this back-through movement with a pure gold case. Perhaps this design of the brand is for the protection of the movement, but more Much of it is the high respect for consumers of this watch.

 18.0526.4039 / 01.M526 From this perspective you can observe that this Boao case is very heavy, the use of precious metal materials and very large hands, so the design is so heavy, its significance is probably to make the watch on the sense of luxury More prominent.

 18K yellow gold straps are actually very common, but the design of Zenith is unique in distinguishing luxury from superficiality. This kind of measurement is actually very difficult to control, but Zenith did it.

 18.0526.4039 / 01.M526 engraved the five-pointed star logo on the center of the buckle. Although the area is very small, the workmanship is very fine and clever. Just like the quality of Zenith, it is luxurious and low-key and restrained.

 The lugs are linked to the case to make it a whole design. The dividing line from the dial is that the dial design highlights the contours, making this watch not only weighty but also durable.

 18.0526.4039 / 01.M526 The visible balance wheel design is more common in the watch industry, but different from many brands, the balance wheel design of Zenith watches is very fine, making every detail worth your time Scrutiny and recognition.

 This Zenith watch uses the Zenith EI Primero chronograph movement, which is a very outstanding movement in the Zenith family. The movement runs smoothly and steadily, and the timing function is very accurate. Lets you find a perfect ‘internal organs’ under its glorious appearance.

 Summary: The Zenith family has come along all the way, constantly bringing surprises to the development of the human timer. Now we regret that this watch has been discontinued and purchases must be made through second-hand channels. But such a landmark watch masterpiece is definitely worth a lifetime collection.

Decrypting Patek Philippe’s Enamel Watch

Enamel is actually a ‘glaze’ attached to the surface of a metal or ceramic after sintering at a temperature of about 800 degrees Celsius using silicates such as quartz, feldspar, borax and fluoride. Used for decoration and rust prevention. The enamel pots, cloisonne utensils, etc. that we commonly use in our lives belong to the enamel category. From 1918 to 1956, enamel and enamel were the same concept. In 1956, China set the standard for enamel products, and enamel became the exclusive term for artistic enamel.

At present, enamel and enamel are still used in English vocabulary abroad.
Enamel is mostly used for dials in watches. An 18K gold watch equipped with a 2892-A2 movement in Athens can be sold for more than 200,000 yuan with an enamel dial. Still Patek Philippe is kind. Its REF.5116G, although using a white enamel dial, is priced the same as the REF.5119G using a normal dial. However, Patek Philippe launches a set of color enamel watches every year, and the situation is another look: most of the 18K watches with 215 movements are usually more than 200,000 yuan each. Patek Philippe’s enamel watches are usually collectibles and are not easy to buy.

I like enamel, Patek Philippe Museum is a must visit. The enamel treasures here are arguably the richest and most exciting in the world. Once when I was visiting enamel at the Patek Philippe Museum, the guide said: the most important thing to appreciate enamel is color. Red and blue, which are common in classical oil paintings, were only reproduced in enamel products by the French hundreds of years ago. It took the Swiss more than 100 years to decipher the ‘color code’ of enamel. Enamel is white or transparent and colorless. Its color comes from the mixing of various metal oxides during high temperature sintering. For example: gold is added to the raw materials for making enamel, and the red after the high temperature kiln transformation. In addition, cobalt oxide turns blue, antimony turns yellow, rhodium turns black, copper oxide turns green, manganese turns purple …
曾经 I once asked Mr. Philippe Stern, the former president of Patek Philippe, why the prices of some antique enamel watches on the auction floor are often astonishingly high? Is it just because the enamel watch is difficult to make? Philip Stern replied: ‘Enamels made by ancient people usually copied some famous oil paintings. In this sense, an antique enamel watch is actually a slightly painted oil painting. When the ancients made enamel watches, It often takes 10 or even 20 years to paint, and then 5 to 10 years to fire and repeatedly polish. In the long process, if there is a mistake in one link, then the enamel Watches will become obsolete. How many 10, 20 years are there in a person’s life? ‘How many people are still willing to spend 10 years to complete a work?
