Fusion of avant-garde design and ceramic case, setting a model for high-tech watches
Halma’s masculine Reverso Squadra series square watch, once launched, has become a model of high-tech watches. Innovative design and superior performance have conquered men who love high-end watches around the world. Today, the Reverso family has added a new technology darling for the first time with a black ceramic case, which not only combines various cutting-edge technological achievements, but also inherits the series of reversible double-sided cases, showing a variety of complex functions. In addition, in order to meet the needs of world-class polo athletes, Jaeger-LeCoultre has also equipped with precise mechanical devices to provide clear and easy-to-read timing displays, allowing polo players to accurately measure the time of each round. The date window is displayed. The back of the watch shows the time in 24 time zones around the world at a glance, which is an indispensable practical function for travelers who travel frequently around the world. This watch has three characteristics of bold innovation, noble elegance, and durability. Its accuracy and reliability absolutely meet the most stringent requirements of outstanding athletes.
Ceramics into the kingdom of Reverso
Only in the Reverso Squadra World Chronograph Polo Fields ceremonial timepieces, ceramic materials can highlight its charm in the Reverso series. This rugged, high-tech watch is highly sporty and complements the avant-garde design of a black ceramic reversible case supported by rose gold or titanium alloy lugs. In order to complete this perfect masterpiece, it is necessary to break through the restrictions on the use of ceramics and develop new production technologies that are better than the past.
The raw material of high-tech ceramics is zirconia, and a small amount of yttrium is added as an organic binder to increase the stability of the fusion process. The two raw materials are directly pressed and subjected to a high temperature of 2000 degrees, and fired into a very uniform ceramic block. . The first finished product is just the initial shape, far from the elegant shape of the design, so it needs to be fired at 2000 degrees again to make it harder. At the same time, in order to avoid the formation of bubbles or pores, X-ray inspection technology is also used in the process. Finally, careful polishing and modification can achieve the outstanding Reverso Squadra case. Not only that, the difficulty is that the Reverso case has more than 50 parts, and the manufacturing process of the reversible case is extremely complicated. The polishing process is also very important. In order to create a precise and detailed watch case, it must go through a CNC 5-axis process. This process is also an important part of constructing a reversible rectangular case, so that the movement can be assembled later. The whole process is complicated and requires four times more labor than a classic case. Special tools are required for processing, including grinding wheels coated with diamond crystals, and diamond powder for polishing. After a long period of unremitting research, Jaeger-LeCoultre finally created a material that is heavier than titanium, has twice the hardness of stainless steel, but is much lighter than stainless steel. The Reverso Squadra World Chronograph Polo Fields has a sturdy case with a uniform appearance. It is a perfect crystallization of cutting-edge technology to ensure durability.
Self-winding movement by Jaeger-LeCoultre
The Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory designed the 753 automatic winding movement for the Reverso Squadra World Chronograph Polo Fields chronograph watch. The back of the case is engraved with a transparent disc of 24 city names. The exquisite movement has a panoramic view, and the viewer can fully enjoy the dazzling rotor of the movement, 39 rubies and 28,800 vibrations per hour. The master of clocks cleverly uses the gear drive system to display various functions on the front and back of the case, which is truly a treasure of mechanical craftsmanship. Two barrels give the watch a power reserve of 65 hours, which is more than enough.
Reverso Squadra watch design and function
The extraordinary characteristics of black ceramics have also opened up a new path for watch factory designers. They are beautifully contrasted in rose gold or titanium with a black case. The carefully treated black dial is set against white digital hour markers with Reverso features. Important indicators such as the second hand and power reserve hand are highlighted in red to make important information clear at a glance. The back of the watch is equipped with a world time display function. The transparent disc, which is evenly divided into 24 zones, can not only display the time in 24 global time zones, but also facilitate the appreciation of the outstanding Jaeger-LeCoultre 753 automatic winding movement. Exquisite shaded area with day / night indication function to avoid confusion when reading world time. The 24 cities selected by Reverso Squadra World Chronograph Polo Fields are not all capitals, but priority is given to the largest polo venues, such as Palm Beach in Florida, Palermo in Argentina, Londonham in the United Kingdom, Spain Sotogrande and Dubai in the Middle East. Bright, clear, high-tech reversible watches make watch lovers love it.
In the intense competition, clear and easy to read is the most important condition of the watch. The Reverso Squadra World Chronograph Polo Fields is a leader in this respect. The minute timer at 9 o’clock and the hour timer at 3 o’clock use bold squares; set against a black and white contrast background The red second hand stands out. The large double date display at 12 o’clock clearly shows the power reserve display at 6 o’clock to show that the watch is operating normally. The design of the side of the case also considers aesthetics and practicality. The crown and streamlined buttons of the rose gold or titanium alloy highlight the strong and powerful design of the case, and the movable rubber chain with metal bracket is exceptional. The stainless steel folding clasp with safety button prevents the strap from unintentionally coming loose. Suitable for high-speed sports, accurate watches, water-resistant to 50 meters, sports watches have all the performance you need. Lovers of polo and Jaeger-LeCoultre watches can be paired with a high-tech black ceramic case according to personal taste: soft and warm rose gold? Or the same silver-gray titanium alloy? The grade 5 titanium alloy used by the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory is an alloy containing a small amount of aluminum and vanadium. It is the most commonly used material for aviation technology and orthopedics. Its extremely tough mechanical characteristics are favored by aviation technology. Orthopedics appreciates its biocompatibility and does not cause rejection after implantation in the human body. The hardness of titanium alloy is higher than that of pure titanium metal, which can be polished. Titanium alloy and ceramic two high-tech materials form a beaded combination, both of which have anti-rust properties, and are durable and not easy to wear. Rose gold and titanium alloys have their own advantages, and it is not easy to choose. The limited edition of rose gold is only 500.
The Reverso Squadra World Chronograph Polo Fields has all-in-one production details. It is completely loyal to the styling features of the Reverso series and stands out from the rest. Seventy-seven years after the first flip watch came out, it is back to the source originally tailored for polo players, with a strong and unique design, showing the charming style of Jaeger-LeCoultre sports watches.
