Nomos, A Different 2019 New Campus Watch

German watch brand NOMOS has always been famous for its simple style. This year NOMOS has launched a brand new watch. However, the new watch brought this time seems a little different from the previous one. This time, NOMOS brought us the new Club Campus series powered by the Glashütte watchmaking process. What surprises have we brought?

 When NOMOS launched the Campus series two years ago, the watch design concept originated from young graduates. Now, the series has launched three new automatic styles, designed for those who are entering a new stage in their academic or professional career. For the first time, the brand has equipped its watches with metal straps.
 

For the first time with a metal strap

 The design of the Campus series borrows from the Club series that NOMOS Glashütte is famous for being young and dynamic. The six new models are equipped with sturdy cases and unique dials with Arabic and Roman numerals. The case is made of stainless steel and sapphire crystal, the latter being second only to diamonds.

 The common feature of this series is the stainless steel case back. The automatic watch can be matched with a transparent sapphire caseback according to your requirements. This service is free for every Campus watch.

 Three automatic watches are built with the innovative ‘neomatik’ movement. Two Club Campus neomatik watches are either equipped with a new stainless steel strap or with a sturdy fabric strap. The three new Campus watches are also very slim, equipped with NOMOS’s own escapement system, inheriting the distinctive Glashütte watchmaking characteristics.

 The above is the latest cutting-edge information of the 2019 Basel International Watch and Jewellery Show brought by the Watch House. Next, we will provide more and more exciting exhibition reports, so please pay attention.

Amy Les Classiques Elegant Watch

The history of clocks is quite long. Many senior brands always talk about clock craftsmanship or classic aesthetics. However, many younger brands also have the courage of a newborn calf. Maurice Lacroix emphasizes that there is no burden, no limitation, and no self-limitation. Indeed, whether in the field of home-made movements or styles, Amy has performed well. The most rare thing is to play classic design, and Le Méridien is not inferior. The Les Classiques elegant series uses creativity and combines classic elements to create a young, Maurice Lacroix classic.

Les Classiques Moon Phase Chronograph

 When some long-established brands want to create ‘classic’ watches, they can easily extract elements from the antique styles published in the past, and young brands must think differently. Le Méridien’s approach is very clever. It simply integrates the appearance of the pocket watch into the Les Classiques elegant series, using the special curvature of the round case and round bezel to create a strong nostalgia. In the eyes of modern people, this nostalgic element is a natural classic elegance. After adjusting the shape of the case, the configuration of the faceplate meets the classic theme, taking a simple route, and integrating the brand spirit and classics just right.

 In fact, the word ‘simple’ is particularly popular in the watch circle, but it is not easy to really implement it. Les Classiques elegant series of moon phase chronographs have a number of complex features, including chronographs, monthly calendars, moon phases and 24-hour display, such as 7, 8 time display, how to match the display really test the watch factory’s unique aesthetics of simplicity. Amy’s method is to use the 30-minute and 12-hour accumulated time dials to match the day / month and moon phases. The small dial at 9 o’clock shows the 24-hour time, and the date dial is arranged on the outermost circle of the faceplate, eliminating the need for small display dials. The problem of space makes the whole face look sharper. In addition, the slim stick-shaped hour markers and hands also play a visual ‘purification’ effect.

Les Classiques Moon Phase Chronograph
Case: stainless steel
Table diameter: 41 mm
Function: hour, minute, date. Day, month, moon phase, 24-hour display
Movement: ML154 hand-wound movement
Kinetic energy: 48 hours
Water resistance: 30 meters
Strap: Alligator leather strap with folding buckle.

 Les Classiques elegant series moon phase chronograph with ML 154 self-winding movement, the balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, power reserve of 48 hours, the movement is decorated with circular patterns, snails and Geneva ripple, and rhodium-plated First, to strengthen protection, and second, light gray, low color tone, it also seems more texture.

 Amy’s moon phase watch often makes people feel amazing. This is not unexpected. It has aesthetic cognition and courage to break through. Naturally, the moon phases that are not sufficiently sharp in the configuration can be lifted into the visual focus. Les Classiques elegant series power reserve watch gives the same feeling, the original power reserve display can also play like this.

Les Classiques Elegant Power Reserve Watch
Case: stainless steel
Table diameter: 40 mm
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, power reserve display
Movement: ML109 hand-wound movement
Kinetic energy: 42 hours
Water resistance: 30 meters
Strap: Alligator leather strap.

 Whether the power reserve display of a general watch is at 3, 4 or 9 o’clock, the design of the display panel is usually lower-key than the moon phase. The reason is simple. The power reserve display focuses on practicability. Furthermore, there are not many forms that can be changed with a pointer and a pointer. The Les Classiques elegant series power reserve watch moves the kinetic energy display to 12 o’clock, and the arc of the display window is enlarged to 120 degrees, so the entire power reserve display is very eye-catching. The independent seconds dial at 6 o’clock provides a visually balanced effect, with gold-colored hour markers and hands, and a silver-white dial, which naturally reveals a strong sense of fashion. In addition to styling and creative face plate configuration, polishing is also the focus of judging the value of watches, and Le Méridien does not neglect these details. Take the slender rod-shaped time scale, the smallest right-angled cross-sectional area is less than 0.01 square millimeters, but if you look carefully through a magnifying glass, you will find that the texture is as fine as polishing, which shows that Amy has a critical and strict quality requirement.

The First Professional Diving Watch From Hublot

The biannual ‘Only Watch’ charity auction in Monaco has always been a major event in the Swiss watch industry. Many well-known watch brands have launched unique exclusive auction watch models together. Hublot will launch a professional waterproof watch “Oceanographic 4000” in this charity auction, which is made of high-tech carbon fiber material. This model is mainly red and white in Monaco flag. The all-black background of the carbon fiber case, professional and fashionable high-profile proclaims ‘charity is the ultimate expression of luxury.’
    Hublot “Oceanographic 4000” adopts the masculine, rough and bold King Power series case. The newly developed full carbon fiber black material pattern highlights the sense of technology. The test proves that it can withstand 400 atmospheric pressure at a depth of about 4000 meters. With professional diving strength, it symbolizes the possibility of challenging the limit, and changes the traditional “rotatable bezel” located above the case. It is placed on the outer ring of the faceplate, which is more effective and safe to avoid mistakes during diving. The risk of being touched is further enhanced by a faucet lock on the upper right crown; carbon fiber material adds a sophisticated and stylish feel to the rugged case, and the large faucet lock and professional luminous paint on the dial emphasize the Hublot professional Ultra-high standard of watchmaking.
    The “Oceanographic 4000” has been in development for 18 months, and it is the first new series of wristwatches published by Hublot. It not only shows outstanding technical achievements, but also highlights Hublot’s “Only Watch” auction. The company’s spirit of value and enthusiasm for public welfare; the main color system of the red and white faces uses the colors of the Moroccan flag, and is named after the partner of the Musée Océanographique de Monaco, which is not only in line with the founding of Morocco Spirit is also the venue and birthplace of Only Watch.
    Hublot has a deep root in Morocco. It not only continuously sponsors the ‘Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy’ (DMD, the symptom is continuous muscle atrophy). The fundraising ‘Only Watch’ charity auction has also launched several generations of The Yacht Club of Morocco watch and even released the ‘Tuiga’ centenary watch in 2009. Hublot President Sean-Claud Biver once said, ‘Luxury is the ultimate sharing.’ Hublot sponsors the global charity deeds and adds another one to Monaco. !!
