Legendary forms of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date and non-standard design approach

This year, the Oyster collection, famous for its exceptional watches made of precious metals, was enriched with the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 model in an 18-carat white gold case. The new model continues the tradition of Day-Date and its progenitor - the 1956 Day-Date model, which became the flagship among the watches, indicating not only the date on the dial, but also the full name of the day of the week.

The main feature of the novelty is that the display of the days of the week in the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is available in 26 languages, and the change of the day of the week and date occurs in one instant at midnight.

It should be noted that the dial of this year’s Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date was made from a meteorite, which allowed the use of a unique natural pattern. The movement of the cosmic watch hands results in the caliber 3255 of the Rolex manufactory production with automatic winding and a power reserve of about 70 hours. On the hand, the case holds a bracelet with semicircular three-row links, better known as the President bracelet, which undoubtedly indicates the popularity of Rolex among representatives of the political elite..

On September 12, Apple introduced its new "smart" watches to the world. Apple Watch Series 4 remained with its rounded corners, but with a wider display and a less slim body. The microphone, with the purpose of reducing the echo, was transferred to the other side of the gadget, and the speaker, whose volume doubled, was optimized for calls, Siri commands and the "Radio" app.

When creating the Apple Watch Series 4, engineers were betting on health applications. Now the watch is capable of removing the heart rate with the help of the new "ECG" application. The electrodes integrated into the Digital Crown wheel, along with the heart activity sensor, now periodically evaluate the rhythm of the heartbeat in the background and send a report of the abnormalities. Also, the wrist cardiologist warns the user if the cut-off frequency falls outside the specified range. The research data and the conclusions drawn from them are saved in the "Health" application in PDF format.

The new generation gyroscope and accelerometer built into the Apple Watch Series 4 are now able to recognize the fall of their owner. Now in the case of such an unpleasant situation, the system displays a notification of a drop that can be used to call emergency services or simply reject it. If the user remains motionless for 60 seconds after the alert is displayed, the wrestler will call the rescuers and send your relatives the coordinates of your location.

And of course Apple did not forget to take care of the users-athletes. For them, new training was added, the function of notifications about the pace during the jogging and the function "Competitions in Activity", which allows you to compete with other owners of new "apple" watches.

On November 20, the court of Solothurn (Switzerland) announced a temporary moratorium on the payment of debts to Fortis Uhren AG. At the end of May 2018, the company would have been declared bankrupt if it had not coped with its financial difficulties and would not have found a common language with creditors.

A German businessman, Jupp Philippe, a former owner of a food company, came to the rescue. On September 1, the entrepreneur took over the company, renamed Fortis Watches AG, and Lorenz Ebisher was appointed as executive director. Before the change, the brand was owned by a fund from Liechtenstein.

Fortis was founded in 1912 by a watchmaker who opened his workshop in the town of Grenchen. In 1926, the company set up a mass production of self-winding watches, in 1937 - introduced its first chronograph, became one of the companies producing waterproof watches during the Second World War, and in the late nineties created an automatic chronograph with a built-in mechanical alarm clock.

Minute Repetre of the Renaissance era.

The Renaissance era in Italy influenced the work of many artists. Christopher Claret was no exception and created a minute repeater Adagio, decorating him with the engraving of a master from Neuchatel, Eddie Jacquet. Six Renaissance musical instruments were presented on the body, ears and repeater model. On each of the four ears, a wheeled lyre, a tambourine, a lute and bagpipes were located. The head of the minute repeater shows a sakbut and bombard (modern trombone and oboe). The central part of the building is decorated, typical for Renaissance furniture, patterns and curls. To make models, the engraver needs to spend a week.

The manufactory caliber represented by 455 pieces is hidden under the dial of black onyx. A small second hand is placed on the "9 o'clock" mark, a large date indicator is at "6 o'clock", and the time indicator of the second time zone with the "day / night" function, on the additional dial at the "2 o'clock" mark.

The "cathedral gongs" of the combat mechanism are equipped with a special patented device that is able to prevent their collision with vibration caused by hammer impacts. The design of the large date indicator is patented in the same way. The crown is equipped with a safety device: when the drum spring is fully tensioned, the mechanism uncouples the winding shaft to prevent damage due to excessive tension.

Adagio watches with engraving are available in different versions - in red gold, white gold or platinum, as well as in a fully engraved case or case encrusted with "baguette" cut diamonds on bezel or baguette-cut diamonds and sapphires.
