Silicon material has been introduced into watches, but in the past 20 years, it has been called the most epoch-making innovation in the watch industry. When it comes to silicon, the most important part is the silicon hairspring, which improves the accuracy of the watch while not It is affected by temperature and has the ability of anti-magnetic. Some time ago, the hottest topic in the field of watches and clocks, that is, the patent protection of silicon hairsprings expired. In addition to the current Athens, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Swatch Group brands, other watch brands will also have the opportunity to start using it in the future. Without combining the facts, there are still some difficulties in realizing it at present, so today I will introduce to you three representative works of silicon hairspring watches.
Ulysse Nardin Watch Fantasy Series 2303-270/00 Product model: 2303-270/00 Watch diameter: 43mm Movement model: UN-230 Case material: white matte coated titanium Waterproof depth: 50 meters
Let's first look at the Ulysse Nardin fantasy series luxury replica watches that was the first to use silicon materials. When the first generation of fantasy was born, no matter the appearance design, the performance of the movement, or the use of internal silicon parts, it was very groundbreaking, but the sales of fantasy have always been Due to the low price, the watches are only for collector-level players, and it is difficult for ordinary watch friends to have the opportunity to get in touch. Until 2019, Ulysse Nardin launched the Freak X series of watches positioned younger and more entry-level. The watch continues the whimsical design without a traditional dial. Its carrousel strip movement rotates once per hour to indicate the minute display, and the hour markers on the lower layer will also rotate with the dial. The silicon parts used in the movement, such as silicon escapement, silicon hairspring, and large silicon balance wheel, are all made by Ulysse Nardin's own Sigatec company, using photolithography integrated molding technology, and large-area hollowed out silicon parts , Highly recognizable, it also greatly improves the ornamental value of Caruso's non-stop operation. This Ulysse Nardin self-produced UN-230 automatic movement also uses DIAMonSIL diamond silicon crystal technology escapement, by coating a layer of artificial diamond film on the surface of silicon parts, the hardness and smoothness of silicon parts have been improved, and also To solve the problem that silicon processing is easy to break, currently in the watch field, only Ulysse Nardin uses a silicon escapement with an artificial diamond membrane.
Breguet handed down series 7097BB/GY/9WU Product model: 7097BB/GY/9WU Watch diameter: 40 mm Movement Type: Automatic Movement model: 505 SR1 Case material: 18k white gold Waterproof depth: 30 meters
Breguet, as the technology pioneer of the Swatch Group, it is reasonable for the group to make it the first to use silicon hairsprings, and Breguet's silicon hairsprings use a special structure. From the perspective of this handed down series 7097, its disk layout completely refers to the style of Breguet antique pocket watches. The entire movement is made symmetrical and directly exposed on the disk, so that you can clearly see all the gear trains. . Let's look directly at the balance spring of the watch, especially the brand made the end of the silicon hairspring, which is the Breguet silicon hairspring. Shangrao was originally invented by Breguet. In order to make the metal hairspring more three-dimensional, it looks better and prevents the center of gravity from shifting when the hairspring is running. It can be expanded and contracted concentrically to improve the accuracy of travel time. However, due to the limitation of integrated forming technology, the silicon hairspring could not be done originally. Breguet thought of a way by splicing two sections of silicon hairspring together. At present, in the field of watches, only Breguet has successfully mass-produced and used silicon hairsprings.replica Patek Philippe
Rolex Datejust M278381RBR-0032 Product model: M278381RBR-0032 Watch diameter: 31 mm Movement Type: Automatic Movement model: 2236 Case material: stainless steel Waterproof depth: 100 meters
Rolex's Syloxi silicon hairspring is also very special, because the Parachrom blue niobium hairspring is commonly used in brand watches. The combination of two metals, niobium and zirconium, makes its performance very outstanding. Introduced the Syloxi hairspring, which is a silicon hairspring specially developed by Rolex, to be used in women's watches, so that the movement is stable, sensitive to temperature, and has improved anti-shock and anti-magnetic capabilities. In fact, its antimagnetic ability is indeed better than that of blue niobium hairspring. It is used for women's watches, and it also plays a more worry-free and durable role for ladies to wear. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 flower plate, which was launched at this year’s watch fair, has been introduced to you many times. I think this series of styles, if girls want to buy watches at this price, Don't miss it, the outer ring inlaid with 46 round diamonds, with a light gray dial, elegant in style. The disc pattern is composed of 24 flowers, and three different kinds of sun rays, matte and grain patterns are used to modify it. It can be clearly seen that each flower is inlaid with a diamond in the middle of the stamen. Features a bubble mirror calendar display. Caliber 2236 with Superlative Chronometer certification.replica Richard Mille Felipe Massa
The models in the above list are all advanced models with excellent performance in terms of movement performance and appearance design. Each has its own characteristics in design. Athens, adhering to the cool style of cutting-edge watchmaking that has always been the whimsical series of watches . Breguet is a combination of traditional watchmaking and modern technology. As for the Rolex series of flower plates, the only thing I have to say is that I always recommend choosing commemorative bracelets. It’s just my personal preference. The visual effect of the plate chain is still a bit thick and tough, not as good as the JUBILEE five-bead chain, which is more suitable for flowers. disk.
The existence of the silicon hairspring does increase the performance of the watch, but for the silicon hairspring, the last thing to say is that with the development of technology, it is not only exclusive to expensive watches. From the perspective of the popularity of the Swatch Group, Around 10,000 yuan, watch friends can start with silicon hairspring watches. However, it is not that simple for other brands without patents to use silicon hairsprings. Even if they can be used, I think it will still be possible in a short time. There is no way to surpass these companies in technology. Before, Mr. Yan had an article that gave you a comprehensive and clear analysis.
