It is equipped with a cal.584Q / 1 hand-winding chronograph movement. With flyback timing function, 45-hour power reserve
In addition to high-tech ceramics, non-traditional materials that have been active in the industry in recent years include titanium alloys. In fact, strictly speaking, titanium alloy is not a new material. It has a long history of application with stainless steel. In the middle of the last century, manufacturers made titanium alloy models, which have been developed intermittently to this day. Fire up.
Titanium is not popular in our daily life, but it is not rare. The content of titanium in the earth’s crust is second only to aluminum, iron, and magnesium, ranking fourth. Pure titanium is silver-white with a density of 4.5 g / cm3 and is a light metal (the density of iron and stainless steel is 7.8, copper is 8.9, 18K gold is about 15 and pure gold is 19.3). Its chemical properties are extremely lively, and it easily interacts with hydrogen, oxygen and other substances in the air to form extremely stable compounds. Therefore, the titanium metal we talk about in fact is a titanium alloy. It consists of titanium and aluminum, vanadium, It is composed of nickel, molybdenum and other elements. Its main characteristics are high strength, light weight, and super corrosion resistance (experimental proof that it will not rot in seawater for 30 years).
Compared with stainless steel, titanium alloy has more advantages in terms of weight and hardness. It is about half the weight of the same steel watch used for making watch cases, and it is not prone to scratches. Correspondingly, its production cost is several times that of stainless steel. Titanium alloy also has a wide range of applications in the medical field. The ‘artificial bones’ made with it can be connected to flesh and blood to play a supporting and reinforcing role, and never need to be replaced (other metal materials cannot be made). ‘Bio-metal’ reputation, of course, watches made with it do not have to worry about skin allergies and other issues.

The case is made of titanium alloy and stainless steel. The titanium alloy part is very rare. It is 42 mm in diameter. It has an automatic movement and is equipped with an alarm function component developed by Tudor. The power reserve is 42 hours. The 2 o’clock crown on the case is used to set the alarm time and is engraved with ‘ADVISOR’; the 8 o’clock button is used to activate the alarm function. Dial “on / off” display window for alarm function at 9 o’clock; alarm power reserve display at 3 o’clock; small calendar at 6 o’clock
人造 The ‘artificial bone’ made of titanium alloy can be connected to flesh and blood and never need to be replaced, so it enjoys the reputation of ‘pro-bio metal’. Of course, watches made with it do not have to worry about skin allergies and other problems.
In addition to the characteristics of the material itself, the titanium alloy watch is also very different from the traditional watch in terms of design concept. Its pursuit is not the bright and beautiful surface, but the hidden low-key luxury-originally gray is inconspicuous, coupled with the almost impossible to polish, even if the new watch does not look new, naturally not high-profile.
In recent years, many high-end brands have introduced styles based on titanium alloys. It feels that the price can be cheaper than gold watches, but it is on par with gold watches. This is the blind-eye method that luxury goods have always adopted, that is, by digging various themes to emphasize their scarcity and uniqueness, the product is elevated to a unique level and consumers are willing to pay for it.

Everyone has a Rome in it. It is a complex that lingers deeply. The first time you see it, you can feel its majesty, its past, its romantic atmosphere and its profound heritage. This is why Rome is called the ‘Eternal City’ by the world, and Rome is the birthplace and source of inspiration for the BVLGARI brand.
In celebration of the 130th anniversary of the brand, Bulgari donated 1.5 million euros to Rome, the eternal city, to repair the Spanish steps of Rome’s most famous landmark. The renovation project will start in 2015. It is expected that after two years of hard work, this legendary building closely related to Bulgari will reappear.
The Spanish steps are an integral part of Bulgari’s history. 130 years ago, BVLGARI’s first boutique in Rome was located at the end of Condotti Avenue leading to the Plaza de Espana; today, another Bulgari boutique is already located at the intersection of Rome and Rome. On the bustling shopping street, the Spanish steps are the link between the mountain and the mountain boutiques. With the exception of Bulgari, there is no second jeweller in the world who can lean on such a spectacular building.
The legendary Spanish steps, designed by architect Francescode Sanctis, resemble a giant staircase bench garden ladder, and its 138 steps are famous in Italy. Completed around 1725, this project is still the widest stepped building in Europe.
For hundreds of years, countless legends have been staged on the Spanish Steps, and this is also where many romantic love stories on the screen take place. The most well-known of them are Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Pike in ‘Roman Holiday’ Love story. In the film, the royal princess, who longed for freedom, met the tall and handsome journalist Joe on the streets of Rome. The two sparked a spark of love in a short contact. They played in the streets of Rome. The scene of ‘Princess’ Audrey Hepburn eating ice cream while sitting on the Spanish steps is still impressive. The love story of the two accompanied the beautiful street scenes of Rome and the Spanish steps. Became an eternal classic in the hearts of the world. During the filming of ‘Roman Holiday’, Audrey Hepburn often went to the Bulgari boutique on the Condotti Avenue in Rome to buy various jewelry, powder boxes, evening bags, cigarette cases, etc.
It can be said that the history of Bulgari and the Spanish Steps are inseparable. Together with the Spanish Steps, Bulgari, who has passed 130 years, not only symbolizes the heritage and spirit of the ancient city of Rome, but will also continue to write about the eternal glory of this eternal city. .

In 2017, Parmigiani launched the new Toric Chronomètre watch, a modern interpretation of the first watch design designed by Michel Parmigiani. Towards the end of 2018, the brand once again interprets the stunning aesthetics of this iconic watch, launching a watch with a spiral pattern dial decorated with the general pine cone surface.
‘This decoration is too charming because it is designed based on the’ golden ratio ‘. Inside this pattern you can see the Fibonacci spiral curve, which reproduces the harmoniousness that is ubiquitous in nature. This is how Michel Parmigiani describes the hand-engraved pattern on the dial of the new Toric Chronomètre watch. Its concentric pattern is reminiscent of the scale layout on the pine cone-this is one of the countless ‘golden ratios’ in nature.
Manual machine engraving is a manual process. This fine process is only mastered by a few watchmakers, that is, engraving repeated decorative patterns on the material. At 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, the oval Parmigiani brand logo and the ‘Chronomètre’ (ie precision astronomical watch) used by COSC (SwissChronometer Testing Institute) stands out from the dial decoration.
The javelin-shaped hands are semi-hollowed, which is more refined and restrained, which complements the delicate minute scale around the dial and the harmonious proportion of Arabic numerals.
Case and its unique bezel
The bezel of the Toric watch is its unique personality, and the hand-knurled pattern is quite aesthetically striking. Since the birth of the TORIC series in 1997, the bezel of each piece has been hand-made by the same artisan in LeNoirmont, Jura, Switzerland. The knurling pattern is a rare and unique technique; it mainly involves the control of the material, and the concave pattern on a roller needs to be rolled onto the metal. This process requires the skill and care of a craftsman. He had to calm himself before he could start making knurled patterns, because even the tiniest flaw meant that he had to start from scratch. Each knurled pattern is therefore unique, just like every watch in the TORIC collection.
The red gold case is equipped with a PF441 self-certified core certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC). The classic time expression is fully presented: hours, minutes, seconds, and date. All components are carefully decorated to meet the most demanding fine watchmaking standards.

The ultimate ideal of ‘the creator of classic timepieces’ is to present and even shape the cognition of time with a watch. Blancpain’s brilliance is attributed to its insistence on digging the connotation of time as the starting point, through the exploration and release of mechanical aesthetics, and finally returning to the wearer’s position. Blancpain’s full-calendar moon phase is exactly the embodiment of this idea, and it has become the ‘most classic moon phase watch’. Moon phases, ancient times. It used to appear on various timepieces either as a single function or in combination with single and double calendars. It wasn’t until Blancpain creatively combined it with the tri-calendar that the moonphase watch really gained internal, systematic life. Blancpain believes that when the moon phase appears on the dial, the three calendars should be in charge, and one can only be called the most classic moon phase watch. In the quartz storm of the 1980s, Blancpain became the first brand to combine the full calendar with the moon phase in modern times, and the full calendar moon phase was also considered by future generations to guide the traditional mechanical watchmaking industry, highlighting the encirclement banner. The Blancpain moon phase watch is not only a classic moon phase, but also contains industry sentiment.
So far, Blancpain has developed a rich and complete family of moon phases in the industry, covering three major categories: classic moon phases, complex moon phases, and women’s moon phases. Today, let us appreciate the classic 6654 of Blancpain Villeret series full-calendar moon phase watch.
Cal.6654 stable and powerful movement
Cal.6654, the self-winding movement carried by 6654, is one of Blancpain’s proud self-made movements. It has two barrels, which ensures a 72-hour power reserve and a balance wheel vibration frequency of 28800 times / hour . The movement supports full-calendar moon phase function and is waterproof to 30 meters.
Blancpain’s ‘signature’ aesthetic style, perfectly laid out dial
Balance and harmony, elegance and indifference, are Blancpain’s most prominent aesthetic styles. Everyone knows the willow-shaped hands, the round double-layered bezel and the uneven Roman time scales.
The entire disk is visually gentle and soft, with a balanced and beautiful layout. The month and the week window are centered and symmetrical, echoing the six-pointed and slightly magical moon face, which is unforgettable at a glance. Blancpain watchmakers undoubtedly convey a message through 6654: This is an orthodox Blancpain, and the sincerity of the moon phase watch.
Blancpain willow leaf-shaped hollow hands are widely praised in the industry for their elegant, one-touch arcs, and they are even better known as the ‘first needle in the world’. The hour and minute hands are already slim, but they are hollowed out to make them lighter and lighter; the second hand is the thinnest and the longest, and if it is thin, the end is marked with ‘JB’ to prevent it from being too light. One release and one close, there are some differences. The top of a snake-shaped blue-steel pointer is treated with ‘curved arcs’ and fits just inside the date circle. Its fresh blue and zigzag shape not only adds a vivid touch to the main surface of rose gold, but also makes reading time more efficient. The four slender pointers are of different lengths, staggered and stacked, and are quite three-dimensional. The brand’s ‘JB’ logo is consistent, and the details hide Blancpain’s respect and nostalgia for traditional craftsmanship.
Snake blue steel hands
Exquisite craftsmanship details
From the outside to the inside of the dial, the brand’s unique Roman scale hour markers are by no means a simple print. Its smooth polishing and grinding, the thick texture of the precious metal material, and the middle waist design make the shape three-dimensional and shining. The calendar circle is slightly lower than the other parts of the dial, forming a slight depression. Similarly, the month and week windows also use a progressive depression method, which increases the technical difficulty for the watchmaker, but makes the visuals richer and more textured.
In addition to perfectly showing the luster of the visible parts such as the case, buckle, and scale, for Blancpain, meticulous sanding will also occur inside, and even more attention is paid to those ‘invisible places’.
Because sanding is more than a decorative finish. The grinding of the internal components will also affect the accuracy, durability and stability of the watch. The polishing of Blancpain’s movement fully reflects the brand’s excellence. The watchmakers have carefully polished the inner corners and outer corners of each tiny part, and the inner and outer edges without exception. Many places can see extremely complicated chamfering grinding technology. . The chamfering grinding process is very particular about the grinding force of the craftsman. Excessive force will cause deformation of the part, and insufficient strength will cause the angle to be inconspicuous and unclear.
Blancpain’s movement polishing is no longer limited to functional requirements, but has risen to self-requirements close to art. The highly creative and beautiful movement pattern is polished. A sophisticated coat is worn on the sophisticated movement. Through the sapphire back, you can see the brilliant light of the guilloche pattern.
Based on the practicality of watch wearers, Blancpain’s watchmakers have developed a unique functional design through imagination, research and development, fine-tuning and patent application.
Concealed adjustment device: In order to better present the simple aesthetics, Blancpain invented the invention of hiding the adjuster under the lugs to achieve the watch’s clean and rounded lines. The wearer does not need professional tools, and only needs to lightly touch the fingertip to complete the adjustment process.
Security protection adjustment system: In the past, the fast-adjusting calendar function should be avoided as much as possible from 9 pm to 3 am the next day, because the watch’s calendar mechanism is operating at this time, and the movement is easily damaged at this time. Blancpain’s safety adjustment and protection system can lock the fast adjustment function during this period, even if it is mistakenly operated, it will not cause any damage to the movement.
Ultra-long power: In order to facilitate the use of the wearer, Blancpain has been working hard to extend the power of the moon phase watch. It is the first brand to achieve long-term power in the moon phase function.
Mysterious Moon Face
The moon phase function can be described as the first golden supporting role in the watch industry, and it is also one of the most striking features. As a pioneer in reviving the moon phase, Blancpain not only popularized this function into each of its watch series, but also continued to innovate in the design of the moon phase, and strived to make the moon phase more charming and touching. Contrasting Blancpain’s moon phase expressions in different periods, the moon face on the 6654 set its eyes to the side, revealing that the charm to be said is still the most mysterious moon phase watch.
