Zenith Launches The Prestigious Columbus Hurricane Watch

This year, Zenith Manufacture continues to pay tribute to the great navigator Christopher Columbus, using the most exquisite master craftsmanship such as enamel, engraving and micro-painting, to embody the heritage of precision marine navigation Prestige Columbus Hurricane Big Nautical Watch. This extraordinary work is limited to ten pieces. It is entirely handmade and is equipped with three major achievements of watchmaking technology: patented gravity control system, sesame refining transmission mechanism and unique high frequency of 36,000 times per hour.

Avant-garde spirit, bravely meet challenges, eager to explore: the famous navigator Christopher Columbus and watchmaker Georges Favor Jecot have the same passion, continue to explore new areas, the former sails, and the westward journey opens up to India. The road by sea, which in 1865 founded Zenith, the first industrial watchmaking factory. A century and a half later, this star-branded brand still adheres to the tradition of pursuing precise timekeeping and continuous innovation, and has more than 300 patents. In 1969, the brand introduced the legendary El Primero automatic movement, which is still the most accurate series production timing movement in the world today. Zenith adheres to the tradition of creating exquisite timepieces (especially worth mentioning, the watch factory has launched countless enamel pocket watches). It has never stopped on the road to pursue the beauty of machinery, condensing the efforts and wisdom of countless skilled craftsmen. The Zenith Prestige Columbus Hurricane Limited Edition was born. This extraordinary timepiece is a challenge for the master of craftsmanship and watchmaking. It is equipped with three breakthrough achievements in the field of watchmaking-patented gravity control system, sesame refining transmission mechanism and unique 36,000 times. / Hour high vibration frequency-based on the integration of gorgeous and stunning enamel painting process and ingenious engraving design, finally this delicately crafted movement is packed into a rose gold case with a diameter of only 45 mm, while ensuring that Does not affect its accuracy and stability. This work is undoubtedly the best manifestation of Zenith’s bold creativity that combines the extraordinary decoration from traditional master craftsmanship with fantasy machinery, making watch collectors and connoisseurs alike.
Positive, technology dominates
 Zenith uses the dial side of this watch as a stage to showcase the achievements of watchmaking. With its open design, three new mechanical devices can be seen at a glance: a barrel with a sesame mill drive system (located at 10:30 and Between 1:30), gyroscope gravity control system and high-vibration frequency adjustment mechanism (located at 6 o’clock). This highly three-dimensional and technological sense complements the exquisite master craftsmanship inherited from Zenith to this day. Three small gold dials (hour / minute at 12 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock, power reserve indicator at 4 o’clock), beautifully engraved, then decorated with white enamel, blue steel hands and screws Adding to each other’s interest, following the great tradition of watchmaking. The splint is completely carved by hand, and only the embossed Zenith and the stars are retained; then the intaglio part is filled with night blue paint. The balance block of the gravity control system also uses the poetic exquisite decoration, and reproduces the starry sky map of the southern hemisphere by using pure hand micro-drawing technology.

On the back, invite you on an adventure
的 The back of the Prestige Columbus Hurricane Grand Sailing Watch represents the adventures of the famous navigator Columbus with gorgeous colors and vivid reliefs, creating perfect details between square inches, which is breathtaking. Skilled artisans who are proficient in master craftsmanship use a delicate and complex gold panel fixed to the movement to complete a veritable micro-painting. The mechanical components on the first layer of foreground patterns outline marine instruments and hand-engraved Columbus portraits, as well as the astronomical instrument sextant used to calculate latitude. On the second layer of foreground graphics is Columbus’s flagship Santa María when he sailed for the first time in 1492. The hand-decorated micro-engraving pattern is subtle and subtle, even the sail rigging and ropes are clearly legible. The sails decorated with filigree enamel bear the famous Red Cross pattern, and one of them is cleverly decorated with Zenith stars, making collectors who know the history of the brand smile. The gear bridge behind the hull is used to represent the ocean. It is engraved with a small wave pattern and coated with a translucent lacquer. The clockwork box bridge in the background is more profound, and the sky changes day and night with a micro-painting. It is worth mentioning that the watchmaking masters of the watchmaking factory ingeniously use the movement structure to reflect the sunrise and sunset with a carefully decorated pinion, which is clever. And this exquisite decoration requires craftsmen to select fixing points for the applique components on the movement and minimize the thickness of the movement and the space between the movement and the decoration (the space between the sails is less than one tenth of a millimeter) . The exquisite decoration on the prestigious Columbus Hurricane Grand Nautical Watch is completely completed by skilled craftsmen with both hands, making each watch unique and worthy of collection.

The ultimate pursuit of precision ‘core’
If Columbus is brave enough to push the boundaries of space, this watch with the same name uses three mechanical mechanisms to ensure precise timing to break through the limitations of time measurement: a high-frequency tuning device (36,000 vibrations / hour) can measure Accurate to one-tenth of a second; Sesame Refined transmission system can maintain stable power output during power storage, while gravity control system can offset the adverse effect of gravity on the watch’s travel time. In other words, this watch fundamentally solves the problems of wearing and running time, ensuring precise timing. This extraordinary movement consists of a total of 939 components, of which 354 are part of the movement, 173 are gravity control module components, and 585 are sesame mill components.
Sesame Power Transmission System Ensures Balanced Power
When the power of a mechanical watch weakens, the vibration swing of its movement will become smaller, which will affect the accuracy of the watch’s travel time. On the contrary, with the power transmission system of sesame seeds, the power of the watch will remain stable during the power reserve period, because the device can offset the effect of the gradual reduction of the power of the barrel.

Most of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth century pocket watches were equipped with sesame seeds to regulate the power transmitted to the gear set. However, watchmaking factories that can fit this device into a square inch of space with a diameter of only 45 mm are rare. Zenith, after two years of research and development, has finally succeeded in producing a sesame refinery transmission system suitable for the prestigious Columbus Hurricane Grand Sailing Watch, and has entered the ranks of a handful of high-end watchmakers.
Between the winder barrel and the pagoda wheel, a 585-piece sesame mill with a length of 18 cm ensures transmission. The sesame refining structure is extremely precise and complex, consisting of a double refining section and an intermediate refining section. The sliver bars installed in the watch can withstand more than 3 kg of pulling force.
During the entire power reserve process, the power spring transmits energy to the pagoda wheel through the smelting bar curled around the barrel. The Pagoda Wheel obtains balanced power by correcting the tension error and distributes it to the gear set and the silicon escape wheel located in the gyroscope frame. The barrel is smelted by a very attractive method of smelting, and it takes 50 hours (the process of power reserve release) for the smelt to gradually wind up around the barrel. Subsequently, the pagoda wheel and the barrel were turned counterclockwise within a few seconds so that the smelt could be wound tightly around the pagoda wheel again. The shape of the pagoda wheel is carefully designed by Zenith watchmakers to maximize power transmission to the barrel. The grooved pagoda wheel is like an animal horn, and the groove size is skillfully calculated in the seven steps of the production process. It would not have been possible for the Sesame Refined Transmission System to come to fruition without the cooperation of all process departments of Zenith Watchmaking (especially the movement sample department) and the use of precision equipment. This is also one of the advantages of the integrated watch factory.
Gravity Control: Challenge the Law of Gravity
The prestigious Columbus Hurricane Grand Nautical Watch offsets the isochronous (equivalent to the swing time) error with the sesame refining transmission system, and also eliminates another adverse effect that affects the movement of mechanical watches: the effect of gravity.
Keeping the adjustment device in the horizontal position can make the oscillating weight have the best possible swing amplitude, thus bringing the best travel time accuracy. Based on this principle, Zenith designed a new and revolutionary patented module, the gravity control system, to keep the adjustment device and escapement system in the horizontal position for the best performance.
This avant-garde design gravity control system is not only a manifestation of the boldness of the watch factory, but also draws inspiration from the maritime precision timepieces made by the watch factory in the past and pays tribute to the glorious history of the watch factory. This mechanism draws inspiration from the nautical compass that came out in the sixteenth century and borrows its suspension design to maintain the horizontal position no matter how bumpy the ship is. The gravity control system is equipped with a gyroscope automatic adjustment mechanism. No matter how the wearer’s wrist moves, the adjustment mechanism always maintains the horizontal position, which is similar to the sailing timepiece. Zenith is currently the only watch factory to master this design, and won the first prize in the complication watch category of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2011. This design took five years. To develop results.

Unique watch box
超 An extraordinary work, with a unique watch box. The Prestige Columbus Hurricane Watch is equipped with a precious mahogany box decorated with cow bone inlays. It can also be used to collect 80 cigars. Decorated with a parchment-style papyrus silk screen motif, it reproduces the first map of Waldzemuller (1507) with the name ‘America’ ​​(America), a tribute to Columbus.
Zhen Lishi condenses the glorious history of the Great Nautical Age between the delicate and delicate squares, combines bold creativity with original spirit and fun and childlike innocence, conquering a new field with this limited series that combines high-end watchmaking and master craftsmanship.

Silicon Hairspring Or Abandoned, Omega Parent Company Swatch And Audemars Piguet Launch New Material Hairspring!

Today, the world’s largest watch group Swatch Group announced on the official website that it and the famous high-end luxury watch brand Audemars Piguet jointly launched a new hairspring called ‘Nivachron’. It is said that this hairspring uses alloy raw materials on the basis of ‘titanium’. Before that, not only the Swatch Group itself, but also the hairspring materials used by other Audemars Piguet watch brands around the world were generally nickel-iron based. The new Nivachron balance spring has many advantages. It can significantly reduce the effect of magnetic fields on the operation of the watch and can effectively resist temperature changes. In addition, it has excellent impact resistance. Ultimately, all these advantages can significantly improve the performance of a watch. The key to a clock’s accurate display of time is the ‘period of the pendulum.’ On mechanical watches, a hairspring is the only part that connects the balance wheel. Although magnetically connected watches have appeared in history, they are all concept models and cannot be mass produced. Therefore, it can be said that the hairspring is the second most important part in a mechanical watch. Most of the raw materials used for hairsprings are made of constant elastic alloys. The significant difference from other metal materials is that its elastic modulus remains constant within a certain temperature range or the absolute value is close to zero. The use of constant elastic alloy can greatly reduce the impact of external temperature on the accuracy of the watch. Because the hairspring is the core component of a mechanical watch, a slight change can have a huge impact on accuracy. For example, when the temperature rises, the hairspring’s thermal expansion length becomes longer, and the watch will slow down; when the temperature is lowered, the hairspring’s cold shrinkage length becomes shorter, and the watch will go faster. In addition to the constant elasticity of the hairspring, it must also be antimagnetic, shockproof, have sufficient strength and elasticity, good stability and processability. The hairspring made in the early days is made of low-carbon steel. The hairspring made of this material is sensitive to temperature and magnetic force. The error of this hairspring clock can be several minutes a day. In addition, the carbon steel hairspring has a low elastic coefficient, which also substantially increases the power consumption of the mainspring. Once the watch enters the water, causing the hairspring to rust and corrode, the entire watch is broken. Watchmakers at the time were eager to find materials to solve these problems. In 1846, Vacheron Constantin already tried to use copper hairsprings and balances, but gave up due to insufficient elastic properties and other mechanical properties of copper metals. At that time, the Swiss Institute of Antimagnetic Metals was also established. As a member of the association, Vacheron Constantin made the first timepieces using palladium metal hairsprings. In 1872, Richard Lange, the founder of the watch brand Lange, registered the patents of aluminum alloy parts and balance springs. Even in 1883, E. J. Dent used glass to make hairsprings. Such hairsprings were not rusty or magnetic, but had to be abandoned because of their high cost and fragility. In 1885, Vacheron Constantin manufactured a timepiece with a balance wheel, a balance spring, an escapement splint, and a gear made of palladium alloy. The escapement fork was made of copper and used a gold escapement. In addition, one of Vacheron Constantin’s many awards at the Geneva Observatory is the use of gold balances and hairsprings provided by the Geneva Gold Processing Factory. Obviously, gold, palladium, glass, and aluminum are not suitable for large-scale production as hairspring materials. At that time, most ordinary timepieces still used traditional low-carbon steel hairsprings, and used the ‘dual alloy temperature difference automatic compensation balance wheel’ to adjust the error caused by the effective length of the hairspring caused by the temperature difference. This type of balance wheel usually has a yellow outer ring. The copper material and the inner ring are made of steel. When the temperature changes due to thermal expansion and contraction, the error caused by the temperature is automatically adjusted by using the physical characteristics of the outer ring metal expansion coefficient greater than the inner ring. As the temperature of ordinary pure metals increases, the bonding force between atoms will gradually decrease, and the constant elasticity of the hairspring made from it will change. The focus of research on constant elastic metals lies in alloys, but there have been no significant results. Until the appearance of French physicist Charles Edouard Guillaume, who was born in Switzerland, he found through a large number of studies that the iron-nickel alloy containing 36% nickel is particularly sensitive to temperature and does not expand significantly with temperature. This is extremely important for isochronous balance springs based on length. He developed the Invar nickel-iron alloy in 1896, named after the abbreviation of ‘invariable’, which means ‘unchangable’. Later, at the request of Paul Perret, a professor of history and nature at the University of Geneva who was also a watchmaker, he began to study the constant elasticity of nickel-iron alloys. In 1904 he discovered that adding chromium to iron-nickel alloys could significantly improve the performance of finished hairsprings. When chromium is added to an iron-nickel alloy, when the chromium content reaches 12% and the nickel content reaches 36%, the absolute value of the thermal expansion coefficient of the alloy approaches zero and the coefficient change is particularly gentle in the room temperature range. Under the guidance of Guillaume, P. Chevenard perfected the formula, made Elinvar, and finally finalized the production. Guillaume invented the Inver Invar Invariant Alloy, because Guillaume won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1920 for this cross-generational research, which is currently the only achievement from the field of watchmaking that won the Nobel Prize. Because Guillaume was supported by Imphy Alloys, a French professional alloy manufacturer, as a co-inventor of Invar. Yin Fei Company first produced the Elinvar alloy and launched it as a commodity with 1920. It took almost 10 years in the market. The Elinvar alloy replaced nearly 300 years of carbon steel. By 1933, R.Straumann perfected the formulation of the Elinvar alloy in the German vacuum smelting company and made a new Nivarox alloy, which was the origin of Nivarox SA. In 1984, Nivarox SA merged with Fabriques d’Assortiments Réunis (FAR), a Swiss watch parts processor, and changed its name to Nivarox-FAR. Nivarox-FAR is a leader in the manufacture of swivel and escapement parts in Switzerland. Nivarox-FAR was acquired by Swatch Group in 1985. Due to the monopoly of technology and the strong support of Swatch Group, Nivarox-FAR completely occupied the world hairspring market. Even Swatch Group competitors LVMH Group and Richemont Group have had to use Nivarox-FAR products. Nivarox-FAR can be said to be a hidden crocodile in the world’s watch manufacturing industry. The degree of market monopoly is better than ‘ETA movement’. The improvement of watchmaking skills is endless. Nivarox alloys are good, but not the best. At the same time, Hayek held his opponent’s neck tightly through Nivarox-FAR. Some of these brands saw the crisis and generated a little sense of worry, such as Rolex, Athens, and Patek Philippe began to find another way. In the last century, Patek Philippe, Rolex, Swatch Group, and Athens jointly funded the development of a non-metallic material, silicon, with the Swiss Electronics and Microtechnology Corporation (CSEM), a subsidiary of the Neuchate I University of Neuchatel, Switzerland. In addition to constant elasticity, the hairspring made of silicon material is magnetically and shockproof, has sufficient strength and elasticity, good stability and processability. It can be said that ‘silicon’ is the most cross-era material innovation in the watch industry for centuries. In the days that followed, silicon was used not only for the production of hairsprings, but also for the production of core components such as pallets, escapement wheels and balance wheels. However, although the silicon material has unparalleled advantages, it has a disadvantage that it is more fragile than the original alloy as a non-metal material. To put it plainly, silicon components are ‘partial students’. Some disciplines have outstanding results, and some disciplines have obvious shortcomings. Patek Philippe was the first watchmaker to participate in the development of silicon materials. In 2006, Patek Philippe first used a silicon escapement on the mass production model Ref. 5250. Because it was a ‘new material’ at that time, the actual stability of wearing was unknown, so PP promised a five-year warranty with great pride. And also the first Rolex to participate in the research and development is also very cautious, Rolex first used a small size Cal. 2236 movement silicon springs, equipped with smaller demand for female watches. This approach is generally considered to leave enough buffer time for themselves. If silicon is used on the best-selling men’s watches, once an error occurs, it will undoubtedly be a huge blow to the brand image. After more than a decade of actual testing by dozens of brands and millions of consumers, the problems reflected by silicon materials are not as many and horrible as everyone believes. Although silicon is more fragile than traditional metal materials, as long as it is used reasonably, the probability of its damage is extremely low, so low that there is no need to worry. The short board of silicon material parts is now mainly in the later maintenance and repair, because it is integrally formed, and cannot be stitched and repaired later. Once damaged, it can only be replaced after the official after-sales service, and it is difficult to obtain matching parts in third-party agencies. Watches using silicon parts have higher requirements for later maintenance, which can be officially met. But for watch brands, it is impossible for third-party watch repair personnel to avoid it, and it is impossible for officials to open after-sales service centers all over the world. Therefore, everyone is also looking for the balance point of the hairspring production material, which must be ‘easy to use’ and ‘stable’ and can be popularized. For example, Rolex now commonly uses a metal hairspring commonly known as ‘blue niobium’. In 2000, Rolex successfully developed an innovative hairspring and obtained a patent, which is officially called Parachrom hairspring. Its alloy material is composed of niobium niobium, zirconium metal, etc. The early Parachrom hairspring is silver-white. In 2005, Rolex also adopted a new patented technology to improve the surface of Parachrom hairsprings, further improve the long-term stability of the hairspring, and give this hairspring unique blue characteristics. Parachrom hairspring was first used in Daytona’s 4130 movement in 2000, and is gradually equipped in all oyster series men’s watch movements. According to the wording currently introduced by Swatch Group on its official website, it can be clearly seen that the new hairspring ‘Nivachron’ does not have a silicon hairspring in terms of anti-magnetic, constant elasticity and shock resistance, but is superior to ordinary Nivarox hairsprings. In other words, ‘Nivachron’ is the balance between silicon hairspring and Nivarox hairspring, which is both ‘easy to use’ and ‘stable’. Finding the most suitable one among thousands of alloy formulas is not only costly, but also time consuming. Today, the Swatch Group and the watch brand Audemars Piguet announced high-profilely that they are definitely not playing. The introduction of the ‘Nivachron’ balance spring with more balanced performance may lead to the deprecation of the ‘Partial Student’ silicon balance spring.
