Cartier Complication Movement Share Excellence

Designing a movement requires a long, complicated and rigorous R & D process, which perfectly integrates master craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. The development of a new mechanical movement faces two challenges: not only must it be technically perfect, but it must also meet the creative requirements of watch design.
 It takes several years for a complex function movement to be fully worked by the watch designer, and several senior craftsmen apply several + craftsmanship before it can be finally formed. It all starts with a flash of light. The designer first sketched a rough outline and drew basic mechanical construction and movement details. Subsequently, the movement plan was transformed into a three-dimensional design of each component, and the watchmaker evaluated whether it could work normally. Before making a large-scale model, the functionality of the movement must be verified, and then a working prototype of the movement for testing and approval must be produced.
 Only experienced and skilled watchmakers can create high-end watchmaking works. Because to assemble a complex function movement, you must be familiar with the function of each component. After a few years of hard work, their accumulated experience has enabled them to master the various professional skills required for the assembly and adjustment of complex-function watches. Gears, ruby ​​bearings, escapement mechanism, spiral ruthenium and bridge, each component is carefully assembled in strict order to ensure the perfect operation of the movement.
 The hand finishing of the fine watchmaking movement gives the timepiece its unique charm. Before final assembly, the craftsmen use special tools and traditional techniques to manually polish each part of the movement. Regardless of whether it is directly in the eyes or hidden, the precise decoration of the movement components makes each fine watchmaking work unique and unique. In extremely small scales, the bridge is chamfered by a polishing machine. The fine filing of the sides does not affect the polishing of the corners, and the surface of certain specific parts needs to be ‘mirror polished’. Sometimes it takes +5 hours to decorate a single component. In the hollow movement like a miniature building, the precision and complexity of its craftsmanship are unparalleled. The transparent effect of the hollowing process makes the movement exquisite and complex at a glance, showing the extraordinary skills of the master of the movement modification.
1904 MC: the latest achievement in Cartier watchmaking
 Cartier’s willingness to develop its own movements, whether ordinary or complex, proves that the brand has always regarded the great tradition of integration into Swiss watchmaking workshops as one of its top priorities. Therefore, Cartier created the first self-made calibre 1904 MC calibre in 2010, which reflects the brand’s tireless and ambitious exploration and research on the cutting edge of the mechanical watch industry for many years.
 Accuracy, sturdiness and reliability are the important criteria that Cartier followed when developing its first self-winding mechanical movement. The 1904 MC movement combines technicality and aesthetics. Its naming is to commemorate the founding year of Cartier’s watchmaking history, which perfectly meets the highest requirements of brand creation.
 Regardless of the degree of winding of the watch, whether it has been worn for _ hours or a whole day, the design of this 11 ”” 1 / 2-inch sub-caliber ensures perfect timing stability. The movement is equipped with a dual barrel to ensure excellent control of the winding torque (the source of the watch’s long-term power), thereby achieving control and stability of timing accuracy.
 The 1904 MC movement is equipped with a precise adjustment system, which can perfectly adjust the timing accuracy of the movement. This key operation that guarantees the accuracy of the watch is completed by the Cartier master watchmaker through the fine adjustment of the ‘C’ shape fast and slow hands.
 To enable every wearer to precisely adjust his watch to the second, Cartier equipped a 1-second MC movement in the 1904 MC movement. Pull the crown completely out, and the small second hand will stop immediately; push the crown back to the position close to the case, and the second hand will restart.

Glasuti History Brief

In the last few days of World War II, the British and American Air Forces jointly launched a large-scale bombing of Berlin and some East German cities. Historian Frederick Taylor once said: ‘The destruction of Dresden is epic Tragic. This city, symbolizing the best of Baroque architecture in Germany, was once astonishingly beautiful. The bombing turned Dresden into a human tragedy. ‘Today’s protagonist’ & mdash; & mdash; Glashütte, is a small town in it, is also the cradle of the German watch industry.
Glashütte, more than 160 years ago, was the center of watchmaking. It left an indelible mark on the watchmaking industry in Germany and the world. Although it was almost destroyed by war in World War II, the tenacious Germanic nation finally saved it.
The rise of Glashütte’s watch industry originates from the decline of the mining industry on which it depends. With the depletion of the silver mine, the life of most of the residents in the town was unsustainable, and at this time Ferdinand Lange (a prestigious royal watchmaker at the time) received government funding to bring him Of watchmaking skills created the first handmade watch factory in Glashütte, the poorest town in East Oers. Those famous masters have always regarded watchmaking as art, and have invested infinite enthusiasm and all their talents. At the same time, with their selfless dedication, they have passed on the knowledge and technology of watchmaking accumulated over the years to the next generation.
After World War II, most watch factories that had not been completely destroyed were nationalized. After nearly half a century’s efforts, the Berlin Wall fell, and the successors of the Glashütte Watch Industry were able to return to ‘Hometown’ and reappear glorious history.

Through the multimedia display in the pavilion, visitors can see the works of Glashütte pocket watches, watches, pendulum clocks, maritime precision timepieces, various escapement structures, historical certificates and patent documents from all periods. There is also an exquisite metronome, which shows the use of music in clocks.

机械 The mechanical parts are placed in small cabinets. When you look down, the electronic screen behind you is an enlarged view of the parts and detailed notes.
格拉 Glashütte Watch Museum in Germany officially opened on May 22, 2008. In line with the museum’s main spirit: ‘The exquisiteness of time’ & mdash; ‘Bring time into life’, the innovative clock museum not only presents the fine art of watchmaking, but also creates an emotional and philosophical Atmosphere.
The plan to establish the museum was realized with the strong sponsorship of Swatch Group and the local government and people of Glashütte. Based on the tenet of the “German Clock and Watch Museum Nicolas” and the Hayek Foundation ”, the original brand of Glashütte designed the museum’s unique exhibition form, which fully shows the history of Glashütte’s local watchmaking and the time Related human emotions, and tools for time measurement. In the space of about 1,000 square meters on the first and second floors of the museum, more than 400 unique timepieces are displayed.

This is the oldest clock in the town that I found in Glashütte. It is intact and accurate. It still runs today.

The two major spaces in the museum’s theme exhibition, “Historical Review” and “Land of Time”, serve as the prelude and epilogue to the exhibition space. & ldquo; Historical review & rdquo; Focusing on the history and present of local watchmaking in Glashütte. In the beginning of watchmaking in the Glashütte region, the famous representative and founder: Ferdinand & middot; Adolf & middot; Lange ( Ferdinand Adolph lange), Julius & middot; Julius Assmann, Adolf & middot; Adolf Schneider and Moritz & middot; Moritz Grossmann all make Glashütte a refined German The core figure of the town of watch and watch training. Through the museum’s display, other representative periods with Glashütte watchmaking, such as the Wilhelminian period between the First and Second World Wars, the disintegration of Germany and the acquisition of national land, the division of the country It is also displayed in the exhibition space along with the characteristics of the times such as reorganization.
‘The gallery of time’ divides the history of the development of Glashütte watchmaking into different stages in chronological order, and takes visitors into different watchmaking fields, such as the miniature world display of mechanical clocks, allowing visitors to experience and experience themselves. Feelings in the world of hundreds of different mechanical parts. At the same time, it also shows the evolution of the human-invented timer from ‘the clock’ to ‘the watch’, from ‘the pocket watch’ to ‘the watch’. Visitors can also discover the explanation of terminology through the interaction of multimedia display tools in the ‘Time Gallery’.

的 The tireless efforts of Dr. Frank M & uuml; ller led to the completion of the museum in Glashütte. There are 24 steps on his feet, symbolizing 24 hours a day.
In the 160 years of glorious and uninterrupted glorious watchmaking history in the small town of Glashütte, many important buildings related to the watchmaking industry have been established one by one. Even today, these important buildings are still in use or re-used as traditional Glashütte watches. It is interesting that Dresden is famous for its architecture, there are many representative buildings or museums in the city center, and Glashütte only has clocks, so that the only property left by history is inseparable from watchmaking. One of the most unique buildings is the German official watchmaking school located in the center of the town. In order to give this historic building a new life again, in the autumn of 2005, Glashütte invited locals to target this building. Innovative application concepts for design competitions.

Although the Glashütte Museum is a watch museum, it is not difficult to see the luxurious shadow of German Baroque from its appearance.
After the results of the competition were published, the Glashütte local government and the Glashütte Original Watch Factory jointly established a foundation, and in consideration of public interest, a compound watch museum was established that combines the display of historical data, book information and watchmaking work display centers In order to complete the collection, Glashütte also contributed a wealth of exhibits to the foundation. With the strong funding of the Swatch Group, the original Glashütte brand was able to buy the German watch school and expand it for a museum construction project. In addition, Alfred Helwig Watchmaking School has also moved into the museum building, which will continue the tradition and history of Glashütte’s watchmaking.
The Glashütte Clock and Watch Museum is located at the old site of the official watchmaking school in Germany. It will also be a center for promoting German watchmaking technology and education, as well as technological research and development. Dr. Frank M & uumlll, President of Glashütte Original Brand, said at the opening ceremony of the museum: ‘The Glashütte Watch Museum in Germany plays the role of letting people experience & lsquo; Time World & rsquo ;, Therefore, it is not only designed for watch lovers, but also for the general public such as family members or young people. We very much look forward to receiving the first guests to visit, and also hope that this amazing museum exhibition can show the essence and beauty of watchmaking art, and be able to pass on watchmaking related expertise to our next generation. ‘At the same time, Mr. Marcus Dressler, acting mayor of the local government, also said:’ This is a day expected by the Glasutti people. The museum in the center of the town has already Renovate and breathe new life. Glashütte represents the watchmaking town of Germany that will regain its glory. & rdquo;
