    Four Major Maintenance Tips For Top Watches

    The service life of a watch is related to whether the wearer uses and maintains the watch correctly. The dirty appearance of the watch, the unsuitable length of the strap, and the harsh use environment can easily cause damage to the watch and shorten its service life. Mid-to-high-end watches should be repaired every two to three years to check the travel time performance and movement power consumption. Regular maintenance services will effectively extend the use of your watch. Water resistance of watches
    The waterproofing of the watch relies on the waterproof rubber ring on the mirror, the back cover, the handle, etc. to meet the corresponding standards. All waterproof watches are marked with ‘WATER RESISTANT’ or ‘WATER PROOF’ in English on the bottom cover. Watches without waterproof markings are only dustproof and should not be exposed to water. 30 meters (3ATM, 3 atmospheres) waterproof watch can be used for daily grooming or rain, that is, water droplets only splash on the surface without any water pressure on the watch. The 50 meter waterproof meter can be used for swimming and general housework, and the 100 meter waterproof meter can be used for underwater work such as swimming and diving.
    的 The aging of the waterproof rubber ring will affect the waterproof performance of the watch, so the waterproof rubber ring and the handle of the watch (including the waterproof ring) should be replaced regularly according to the use situation. The quartz watch must be replaced with a waterproof element every time the battery is changed to ensure good waterproof performance.
    Any waterproof watch should not be worn in a hot bath, sauna, or in an environment where the temperature varies greatly. Because the waterproof rubber ring is affected by temperature, it will expand and contract due to thermal expansion, and it will accelerate the aging, which will cause water condensate in the water and the surface, which will seriously damage the parts.
    ‘Two defenses’ for watches
    In national standards, the antimagnetic and shockproof performance standards are expressed by the ‘residual effect’. The residual effect refers to the difference between the instantaneous day difference of the watch before detection and the instantaneous day difference of the watch after detection.
    Shockproof: When the watch accidentally falls from the height of 1 meter to the horizontal hardwood surface, the residual effect of the quartz watch does not exceed 2 seconds, and the residual effect of the mechanical watch does not exceed 60 seconds.
    Antimagnetic: When the watch is accidentally exposed to a magnetic field with an intensity of 4800A / m, the residual effect of the quartz watch does not exceed 1.5 seconds, the residual effect of the mechanical male watch (the movement area is greater than 314 square millimeters) does not exceed 30 seconds, and the residual effect of the mechanical female watch does not More than 45 seconds.
    Water removal secret
    If water accidentally enters the case, a granular substance called silica gel can be put into a closed container with the watch that has accumulated water. After a few hours, the watch is removed and the accumulated water disappears. This method is simple and economical, without any damage to the accuracy and life of the watch. The silica gel that has been absorbed for many times can be dried at 120 ° C for several hours, the water absorption capacity can be regenerated, and it can be used repeatedly.
    Refurbishment secret
    After the watch has been marked with a lot of lines, you can first drop one or two drops of water on the watch, and then squeeze a bit of toothpaste to wipe it off. Then you can remove the marks and make the watch as new. Maintenance tips
    (1) When wearing a watch, the sweat on your hand is corrosive to the case.The all-steel case is better because of the nickel-chromium alloy. Sweat often with a soft cloth or pad with a plastic watch rest to prevent it from being attacked by sweat.
    (2) Do not open the back of the watch at will, so as to prevent dust from entering the movement and affecting the normal operation of the watch.
    (3) Do not place the watch in a wardrobe with camphor pills, as the watch oil may deteriorate.
    (4) Don’t put the watch on the radio or TV to avoid magnetization.
    (5) Watches that are not worn for a long time should be wound up regularly every month so that the parts will not be in a static state for a long time to ensure the performance of the watch.

    Art On The Wrist Rm 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo Wristwatch Tasting

    On the dial, adding elements of artistic creation is itself a more creative design. Classical works such as painting on the watch, carving on the watch, etc., give the watch an artistic flavor, and add a sense of culture and appreciation to the watch. This year, Richard Mille introduced a graffiti watch RM 68-01 tourbillon Cyril Kongo watch, as a veritable ‘art on the wrist’, will undoubtedly leave a strong mark in the history of watches and clocks. This is the first time in history that a street artist has perfectly integrated his artistic world into the watch movement to add luster to the watch (watch model: RM 68-01)

    艺术 of contemporary art graffiti and watches

    Cyril Kongo Studio

       Richard Mille wants to showcase contemporary art in horology. This unprecedented fusion resulted in RM 68-01. Indeed, this tourbillon movement is not only a watch accessory, but also a canvas on which graffiti master Cyril Kongo shows inspiration and creativity. Never before has a watch been able to create art on the bridge and movement base.

    Cyril Kongo In action
       This production technique can draw beautiful lines that are difficult to distinguish even with the naked eye. Such lines cannot be directly hand-drawn, although some specific patterns will be first outlined with a particularly fine pen. No matter what technology is used, every part of the watch is hand-painted and painted by the well-known Mr. Color.

    RM 68-01 Tourbillon Cyril Kongo Watch
       In RM 68-01, these parts all reflect the artistic value of this timepiece treasure. Graffiti art is often closely linked to the high walls of the city, while the world of watches is known for its micro-machinery and high precision. Richard Mille and Kongo, together, successfully brought the art of urban high walls to the bridge, movement bottom plate and sapphire dial in the watch.

       Richard Mille says Kongo has expanded the boundaries of horological technology. And this is exactly what I hope-to bring Kongo into the world of high-end watches. It’s not just simple spraying. Kongo has given new artistic life from the movement to the dial with his unique vision.

    Watch front and side display

       On the back of the watch, we can see that the central pattern of the base plate of the tourbillon radiates to the surroundings, showing the effect of splashing the paint on the wall. The angle of the arcs formed by the front bridge of the movement is different, just like the wild strokes in the mural art of the street. The watch case consists of a NTPT® carbon fiber bezel and a black ceramic bezel. The case uses an asymmetrical design, and the thickness gradually decreases from 9 o’clock to 3 o’clock; the height gradually decreases from 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock. RM 68-01 demonstrates the perfect fusion of contemporary mechanical art and visual art in a unique way in the 21st century timepiece field.

    Watch front display

       The plate is made of grade five titanium metal. This material is compatible with materials, has excellent corrosion resistance and rigidity, and is very suitable for use in gear transmission systems. This combination consists of 90% titanium, 6% aluminum, and 4% vanadium. These combinations enhance mechanical properties. Therefore it is often used in aerospace, aviation and automotive manufacturing. Hollow machine board and bridge board are thoroughly and intensively tested to optimize their strength.

    Watch case display

       The watch bezel and case back are made of black ceramic. The low density of this black ceramic (6g / cm3) makes it highly scratch-resistant and extremely low thermal conductivity. At the same time, the TZP material with 95% yttrium-stabilized zirconia has a remarkable texture, which brings amazing and perfect results. Through the long and elaborate manufacturing and polishing process of diamond tools, the matte black ceramic surface is finally created.

    Watch crown display
       The watch is equipped with a dynamometer crown.This safety device prevents excessive winding, which may cause damage to the spindle or overtighten the mainspring. Non-slip texture design, no slippery, convenient operation.

    Inside the watch
       The upper inner ring is made of grade 5 titanium alloy with a black plating process and is patterned by Cyril Kongo.

    Watch movement display
       The watch is equipped with a RM68-01 movement with a thickness of 8.39mm. The base plate and bridge of the movement are made of micro-blasted grade 5 titanium alloy. It has a variable inertia balance wheel and an end curve hairspring structure to ensure the stability of the watch and ensure its durability and extraordinary accuracy.

    Watch overall display
