Almost two months later then at Baselworld 2011, the movie I touched hands and Its operation that - 'threatening' - 3 h and satellites That His mimicry with rotate on the dial as many fighter planes in combat formation. Watch this short video.
Yesterday Urwerk - Directly from the ITS 'special department'http://www.urwerk-rarespecies.com Launched the new UR-110 Torpedo ZrN - Otherwise said 'Champagne Supernova' . This is a very special zirconium nitride Torpedo to be built in only 12 samples to be sold through Exclusively Chronopassion (Paris), Marcus (London), The Hour Glass (Singapore) and Westime (Los Angeles).
If you know Already Know That Urwerk Among her teachers there is the use of high-tech materials . Zirconium Nitride - ZrN - is a ceramic coating with a machine-tool work with just A Few microns thickness of the metal That Gives the recipient - in this case the lunette blasted steel - an incredible hardness (2000 Vickers is Called). The processing result is a big resistance to scratches, use, corrosion donating to this RH-110 Reflections of light-colored 'champagne'.
Felix Baumgartner - Part of the castes of AHCI independent watchmakers Explains: ' The beauty of RH-110 is In Its apparent simplicity, For Him we have radically different technical solutions Adopted from our previous creations: 'Continuous' Instead of using ball bearings to fixed axis runs the full height of the clock, maximum rigidity with minimum Providing play. The complication of the carousel is perfectly balanced and Entirely on this axis . '
But why this particular Torpedo Urwerk Gave HIM the nickname 'Champagne Supernova'?
It is inspired by the space. Long ago in a galaxy far, far away, a white dwarf star, rich in carbon and oxygen, exploded in a giant thermonuclear reaction. The resulting Has Been Called a supernova SNLS-03D3bb and revolutionized astronomy as it was found two times more Powerful than you thought to Celestial Body Like That Could Never Achieve.
It Took Four billion years of Evidence That the sun Reached That cataclysm the earth in the form of an unusual pale yellow light. SNLS-03D3bb was Discovered April 24, 2003, and soon nicknamed 'Champagne Supernova'.
If your eye has already fallen on the image below, you will probably be irretrievably been dazzled by the new Zenith Christophe Colomb an incredible new limited edition from the collection of Haute Horlogerie the House, so do not wait to continue reading this post.
Although the design of this masterpiece was announced over two years ago by former leaders of the House on the route of Thierry Nataf Defi Xtreme Tourbillon Zero-GJean-Frederic Dufour - current CEO of the House - but he wanted to exploit it by giving it a completely new classical, and above all closer to the true roots of the brand.
So in a yellow gold case, 18K pink or white gold completely redesigned, but with 45 mm diameter remains of enormous size, that's ahead of you Christophe Colomb moved by mechanical movement Calibre 8804 and featuring an Academy escapement that rises from the crystal gyro with very convex front face at 6 o'clock and slightly also in the bottom. Of course, 'traveling' at 36,000 alternations / hour, the so-called 'high frequency' for over forty years the flag of Zenith.
The silver dial has guilloche worked on 'Grain d'Orge' except for the section of the small seconds at 'Clou de Paris' with Roman numerals and indices blacks. The hands are blued and acciatio indicate hours, minutes, seconds and riseva charge at 3 o'clock.
