The Beauty Of Phonological Perspective Audemars Jule Audemars Hollow Minute Jumper

AUDEMARS PIGUET, which plays a pivotal role in the watch industry, is one of the few watch factories still run by the founder’s family. It is also a watch factory with large R & D functions. As early as 1889, Audemars Piguet introduced pocket watches with minute repeaters, double-tracking hands and perpetual calendar. In 1892, when the watch was still a very rare product, Audemars Piguet introduced the world’s first minute repeater watch. The appearance of the watch was naturally similar to that of a pocket watch, except that the upper and lower ends were added with lugs and a strap.
   In the boom of the mechanical renaissance that began in the late 1980s, Audemars Piguet launched a number of index-intensive complex-function watches. Among them, the time-of-flight minute repeater watch introduced in 1992 is a complex model combining the two functions mentioned above. However, because the size of this watch is only 34x37mm, the internal time-of-flight movement 2865, and the diameter is only 22.6mm, it is indeed slightly smaller for modern people. Therefore, Audemars Piguet launched the new generation of Jule Audemars minute repeater in 2006. The hollow-out version introduced by the factory in the future is the model we will introduce this time.
   The latest feature of the Audemars Piguet minute repeater is its increased size. Not only does the watch adopt a large size of 43mm, but the internal 2907SQ movement also has a diameter of 37mm (the main body of the movement is 29.3mm). Here, the most obvious advantage is that the timekeeping sound becomes louder, which is like the timekeeping sound of a three-question pocket watch, which is much greater than that of a wristwatch. The movement is designed with dual gongs and dual hammers, and its structure can be clearly seen through the transparent bottom cover. In the actual operation of the minute repeater, you can find that the sound is quite crisp and bright, and you can even feel the power of the hammer, which has a performance above the standard, but the operating sound of the reducer is slightly obvious.
   Because of the previous minute-of-minutes questionnaire, the hour-drilling disk is located at the upper left of the faceplate and the size is small, so the number ratio in the time-jump window is not large. In order to improve the readability of this movement, the size of the jumping disk of this movement has been greatly increased, spanning the central hand and the small second hand at 6 o’clock, and its jumping module structure has also expanded the movement diameter to 37mm, so The space of the window during jumping is obviously larger than before; through the flexible ball bearing and spring structure, the disc moves very quickly during jumping.
   In addition to the minute repeater and jumping time function, the hollow-out process is also the focus of this watch. The factory uses a rose gold plating color, which highlights the differences between the machine plate and parts. The surface of each plywood is treated with delicate fish scales and filaments, and the chamfering of the parts is also polished. Through the hollow design, not only can you see the operation of the time jump structure, when the timekeeping function is activated, the hammer and moving parts showing the striking action are also clearly visible.
