The Moon Is Bright, The Moon Phase Changes, The Mid-autumn Festival, The Stars Are Bright Union Glashutte Bellis Series Moon Phase Chronograph

Moon phase display is one of the traditional complication of watchmaking. On the occasion of the Mid-Autumn Festival, UnionGlashütte reinterpreted this design in a classic and elegant style. In September 2019, Zhizhicheng launched a new model of the moon phase chronograph family: the black dial moon phase chronograph.

  Round 44 mm stainless steel case with stainless steel bezel / 18K rose gold bezel and screwed sides. The button of the timing device and the low-key adjustment device at 10 o’clock allow the wearer to set the day of the week individually. Other features include double-sided anti-glare glass mirrors, and water resistance up to 10 bar (100 meters).

  The moon between the wrists is just as fascinating as the moon in the sky. The gold moon of the Belisar moon phase chronograph is exquisite in craftsmanship, rotating in the deep blue sea sky. There are other features around the moon: a series of calendar functions contrasts with the white dial and rose gold hour markers and numbers. Includes a central calendar hand with a crescent-shaped end and a week and month display at 12 o’clock. Like the moon phase function, these elements are ingeniously combined with the 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock and the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. At the same time, the small second hand shares a chronograph with the 24-hour display at 9 o’clock. The blue steel central self-stopping second hand can also be used to measure short time periods.

Balber Meteor Rain Tourbillon Watch Dazzling Gorgeous Romance

Meteor showers cut through the sky, spectacular but rare. There is an old saying in the West: The wish made in the face of a meteor shower will soon be realized. This shows the romance and mystery of the meteor shower. Blancpain, which has always been pursuing top-level complex watchmaking craftsmanship, has used brilliant diamonds to create an unprecedentedly gorgeous meteor shower between square inches. The realization of such a spectacular scene can be attributed to the unremitting research of Blancpain mosaic masters. This Blancpain Meteor Rain Tourbillon watch uses the brand’s patented ‘orbital effect’ concealed mosaic method, centered on the floating tourbillon at twelve o’clock, emitting a whirlwind-like trajectory.

 Just like the dazzling light from the outside, the beauty of its inner movement is also interesting. The Blancpain Meteor Rain Tourbillon watch is equipped with the self-made Calibre 6925 self-winding movement. It consists of 307 parts and has a power reserve of up to 168 hours. The large date window at 6 o’clock on the dial echoes the floating tourbillon at 12 o’clock. Through the sapphire crystal case back, it was found that the approximately transparent oscillating oscillating weight was swinging handily, and the tourbillon flight trajectory and the linkage operation of the movement could be seen at a glance.
