Harry Winston (Harry Winston) Historical Tourbillon 10
The tenth and final chapter in Harry Winston's story about the tourbillon.Harry Winston replica Watches
The Histoire de Tourbillon series tourbillon watch launched by Harry Winston has been an ongoing project of the company since 2009, when Histoire de Tourbillon 1 was limited to 20 pieces. The idea behind the series is very similar to the idea behind the Opus series: starting with mechanical watches, explore the limits of watchmaking (in this case, especially the tourbillon) without limits, and observe how far you can improve design and mechanical Complexity.
The idea itself does not necessarily break new ground in high-precision timekeeping, but to make amazing changes visually, mechanically, and aesthetically, making it its own reason for existence, not functionally attractive. reason.
Histoire de Tourbillon 10 is the last part of the series; in 2009, the new HODINKEE did not cover the first chapter, but with the development of the series, we followed closely, multi-axis, tilt axis and dual multi-axis dual tourbillon. Appeared in various models.
Histoire de Tourbillon 10 (Tourbillon 10 Tourbillon) is the first watch to contain four tourbillons and four independent balance wheels, as far as we know, Harry Winston accurately claimed this-there were four tourbillons before (From Greubel Forsey, for example), as far as we know, there used to be four balance Buy replica watches (Quatuor, from Roger Dubuis), but so far, no one has put four balances in four separate tourbillon cages .
The tourbillon cage rotates every 36 seconds (full clockwise rotation) (this is faster than the standard 60 seconds in most other tourbillon watches, although the speed may be different depending on the gear; for example, Baogue made it when he made the tourbillon 4 minutes tourbillon life), the balance oscillates at 21,600 vph / 3 Hz. Energy costs are high.
This watch is powered by two pairs of rapidly rotating barrels and provides a 55-hour power reserve, which seems low for watches of these sizes-the rectangular case is 53.30mm x 39.10mm and the thickness is 17.60mm -Until you remember them, four tourbillons must be driven after all.
The four tourbillons inevitably run at four slightly different rates, so these four rates are averaged to produce a single output for time display. This is done through three differences. The speed of each pair of tourbillons is averaged by the first two differentials to produce two ratios, and the two tourbillons are averaged by the third differential to produce the final output of the hour and minute hands (without the second hand).replica Urwerk watches
Over the years, Harry Winston has made tourbillons for the Histoire de Tourbillon series with different rotation rates (for example, Histoire de Tourbillon 4 is a three-axis tourbillon with three concentric cages, each in 5 minutes , 75 seconds and 5 takes 45 seconds from the outermost to the innermost, but the rotation speed of the double tourbillon in Histoire de Tourbillon 1 (the tourbillon system is designed by Greubel Forsey) is 36 seconds, so there is a certain way to complete the story in this way Symmetry.
Generally speaking, these are six-figure watches, the number is very small, each batch of ten to twenty pieces, more or less; and Histoire de Tourbillon 10 will also be a limited edition, ten platinum, ten platinum, one The piece is a proprietary platinum alloy "Winstonium".
There is an interesting phenomenon in evolutionary biology called "fishermen out of control", which is related to the evolution of exaggerated secondary characteristics—especially in the males of species such as peacocks. Good reproductive ability; the idea is, like the feathers of a peacock, it is written like this: "If I have the ability to waste so much metabolic energy to make feathers, it is my five times the length of my body, then imagine how much I will swing , Trembling, intimacy.” I thought of this phenomenon when I watched Histoire de Tourbillon 10 (and I thought of this when watching ultra-high-end modern watchmaking), because watchmaking, like other luxury goods, also responds The pressure of evolution. One way to attract the attention of actual customers and the larger watchmaking community is to create exhausted timepieces whose unique properties make them stand out from any other watch without any dispute.Jacob & Co Epic X Chrono Replica watch
The same is true for Histoire de Tourbillon 10. Now, it is very tempting to judge a watch by a single standard, and it is very tempting to make a single standard with its own personal taste, but Histoire de Tourbillon is both a watch and a watch. (This phenomenon is very clear, the brand only follows its natural conclusions by not doing anything at all, or making the watch unreadable under any circumstances).
Of course, the tourbillon was originally designed for timekeeping purposes. Since Baogue was invented in the early 19th century, it has been running through the entire history of watchmaking and has always been in an experimental position. In theory (as far as I know), its principle is reasonable because it does produce an average ratio for all vertical positions; again, at least in pocket watches, plus an escapement that does not require oil, this Same as the movement that the late George Daniels thought was worthwhile.
In watches, things are not very clear, but the visual entertainment value of the tourbillon still exists, regardless of its functional advantages. Although it is possible to provide timing advantages for the four tourbillons with four distinct vibrator systems as needed, and produce an average of two average values as output, I think at this point in the twenty-first century, everything is related to vision It’s about the vertigo on the power, not about generating higher rates (I will always remember to ask Stephen Fauci about the advantages of multi-tourbillon systems in terms of rate stability. His answer is: "...always working hard Get more profit than you lose.") . Richard Mille RM 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo
However, I am grateful to Harry Winston for paying attention to details related to chronographs in history – all four balance springs use Phillips winding coils with freely suspended adjustable mass balance wheels.
Moreover, I still appreciate the fact that although almost everyone seems to be retreating to reflective classicism and retro style (so far, the stock of bright red glaze in the Swiss market must be dangerously low), but Harry Win Harry Winston is faithful to some of the more simple outward-looking watchmaking. (However, I miss the Opus series.) Watched all Histoire de Tourbillon watches and all Opus timepieces (from a purely practical point of view, they are usually in a state of instability, although they are always attractive even conceptually When they can't work reliably) was launched in the past ten years and I am very happy to see the last chapter of this series. The customer of this kind of thing may be someone whose asking price represents the wrong rounding of his annual dry cleaning bill, but it is a kind of watch entertainment, reminiscent of the more vigorous time of the mechanical watchmaking renaissance-unexpectedly, and with The retro trend of current watch design is quite different, and there is also a nostalgic form.BRM V12-44-ART-CAR Replica Watch
