As Apple Watch unveils the era of intelligent watch, the intelligentization trend of functional watches begins to prevail. The watchmaking industry will diverge into two opposite poles called as the modern intelligence and the traditional mechanism. The latter presents more elegance of antique mechanism, always evoking the costumers’ profound passion toward sophisticated mechanical instruments amidst the growing pursuit of multi-functions.
1. Innovation in concept
The summit of technique lies in art. The design of tourbillon wristwatch presents not only the artistic and mechanical beauty of technique, but also the distinctive charm to unite mechanical artistry with an explicit and fashion watch shell. It projects the movement construction onto the wall to cast an exceptional shadow of time. It innovates in the design concept of horology and enriches the styles and occasions of mechanical wristwatch usage, turning the mechanical watch into a fair view in family life.
2. Innovation in construction
Despite of the delicacy, solidity and transparency of sapphire-made bridges, they are seldom used due to the intricate craftsmanship and high cost. This wristwatch replaced the traditional character-topped dial with sapphire-made transparent bridges to set onto the mechanical gear trains, directly exhibiting the extraordinary mechanical construction and the mechanism in operation. It brings a penetrating visual effects. Rather than the traditional fixing method with screw for the movement, this wristwatch adopts a brand new fixing method by a flexible structure, which multiples its seismic resistance by 5 times and prevents the fragile sapphire bridge and the movement from breaking easily when struck.
3. Innovation in usage
Using a watchcase with projection function, this wristwatch projects the movement profile onto the wall to cast an exceptional shadow of time. It unfolds the essence and charm of traditional mechanism in a simple yet stylish manner. It brings a creative concept into the usage of wristwatches that watch and clock are made one. It presents the essence of mechanical art on the wrist, and the dance of shadow on the wall.
