Since the development of watches, in addition to continuous changes in appearance design, strengthening various performances is also one direction of growth. In some environments, solid and reliable quality is more important than “surface kung fu.” Nowadays, people like to measure certain products with the concept of “three defenses.” For mechanical watches, “three prevention” is waterproof, magnetic-proof, and shockproof. Today, let’s look at those models that have performed powerfully in their respective fields.
Water can be seen everywhere in our daily life. Whether washing hands and brushing their teeth, accidental rain, or even accidental coffee, there is an excellent probability that the watch will contact the water. Therefore The diving watch is also one of the most popular watches. Many diving replica watches have reached a considerable depth and are moving towards higher standards.
Speaking of Rolex’s diving watch, the first thing everyone thinks of may be the type of submarine. Although it is well-known, it could be more outstanding regarding waterproof performance. Among the many series of Ways of fake rolex watches, the deep dive type REF.126660, commonly known as the “Ghost King,” has an excellent 3900-meter ultra-high waterproof depth. Thanks to Rolex’s patent RingLock system case structure, it can bear 3,900. The pressure of deep water, the mirror surface is equivalent to suffering 3 tons, and its waterproof level is more than ten times that of the submarine type.
Speaking of diving watches, the Blancpain 50 is inevitably occupied. Once, Blancpain and Rolex were to compete for who was “the first diving watch in the world.” Although the influence of Blancpain in the field of diving watches is not as good as Rolex, the Blancpain 50 still occupies quite essential. Status. The 50021 waterproof depth released in 2013 can reach a kilometer of waterproofing, and it has the GMT dual-time zone function. Now it is still the hegemon of the GMT double-time zone deep dive watch.
With the material, the mechanical watch always has a natural enemy: the magnetic field. The magnetic look with a magnetic eye occurs lightly, and it will even stop, which will seriously affect the experience. Now the development of science and technology is getting faster and faster, and more and more electronic products around people, especially the popularity of wireless charging functions in the past two years, making mechanical watches a greater magnetic risk in daily life.
As early as the last century, many watches were mainly anti-magnetic functions. For example, in 1954, the Milguss watch launched by Rolex could resist the magnetic field interference of 1,000 Gaussian strength. The modern version of the “green glass” Ref.116400GV released in 2007 is imposing. It adds an anti-magnetic soft iron cover, which is much thicker than other series, so it also has the other name of “professional small steel cannon.” As one of Rolex’s early “cooking,” the price of green glass was high, but today it has long faded the former halo.
Rolex “Empty” Ref.116900 can be said to be the successor of green glass. The diameter, thickness, and movement are equipped with the same CAL.3131 automatic chain movement. This movement is upgraded based on CAL.3130. In addition to using the Paraflex shock absorbers, it is also equipped with a cosmetic segmentation of the blue tourism silk, the Glucydur swing wheel, and the non -crystalline nickel phosphate material, which significantly improves the anti-magnetic performance. In addition, Rolex’s iconic oyster case and spin-type dual-buckle locks make the “empty tyrants” excellent waterproof ability. Although the “empty tyrants” are positioned at the aviation watch, its waterproof performance differs from a professional diving watch. However, the usage scene in daily life is still at ease, and the overall performance could be better.
After talking about Rolex, let’s look at competitor Omega’s performance. The hippocampus series 18.104.22.168.01.002 Watches are designed with black and yellow dials, vividly called “Hornets” by players. This watch, released in 2013, has 15,000 Gaussian anti-magnetic capabilities, which also refreshed the record of the anti-magnetic performance of the eye. In addition to using non-magnetic materials such as silicon-to-silk silk to make movements, the “Hornet” also adds a unique titanium alloy wheel axis to make the magnetic anti-magnetic performance of the action even more.
Another 600-meter series of sea Horse Marine Universe is 22.214.171.124.01.002, commonly known as “one-quarter orange,” thanks to the three new technologies of the coaxial axis, silicon trace, and magnetic materials used in the Omega Cal.8900, which is used in one. The movement of the anti-magnetic ability is more than 15,000 Gauss. In addition to having the same outstanding magnetic resistance, it can achieve a waterproof depth of 600 meters, and “going to the sea” is naturally unaccompanied.
Meidu Caliber 80 Silicon Witcher
In addition to working on the case, changing the movement material can improve anti-magnetic performance. The most obvious change is to replace the silicon scarf. She is represented by the Powermatic 80 and Caliber 80 movements of the Swa Kiki Group. New products of Tissot, Mido, Citroen, and other brands have been replaced with silicon swimming power movements’ better anti-magnetic performance.
Although sufficient waterproofing and magnetic prevention models exist, shockproof performance is still the weakest part of mechanical watches. The development of clocks is far from waterproof and magnetic prevention. A long time ago, Mr. Breguet developed a shock absorber called “Pare-Chute.” Design ideas have a profound impact on future generations.
Nivachoc shock absorber
To this day, the brand’s improved seismic performance of watches has also worked hard on the shock absorber. According to brand data, the Paraflex shock absorber launched by Rolex in 2005 increased by 50%of the seismic capacity. In 2006, Breguet’s new generation 777q movement was the first to use Nivachoc shock absorbers. It has gradually been promoted to moves such as Longines, radar, and Omega as the same group brand. It is believed that in the future, waterproof, magnetic, and shockproof will become the standard for more and more watches.
