Innovative Solutions From Saxony-lange’s Nine Inventions

Like most Lange inventions, real innovations are sometimes not discernible. The main purpose of these inventions is to make mechanical watches more considerate and practical. RICHARD LANGE PERPETUAL CALENDAR ‘Terraluna’ ‘s patented trajectory moon phase display shows the position of observers looking at the moon, earth and sun in the northern hemisphere.

 
 For many years, Germany has led Europe in patent applications. According to the latest annual report published by the European Patent Office, in 2017, German companies have applied for more than 25,000 patents. Of course, the number of patent applications alone is not enough to measure the innovation of a company. The key factor is whether the invention can bring about real technological development. All patents filed by Ferdinand Adolph Lange follow this principle; he founded the first Saxony watchmaking company in 1845, hoping to produce top-quality watches in his hometown. After the Lange watch factory was rebuilt in 1990, it once again enriched the field of precision watchmaking with many major inventions. Here are some Lange patents that deserve attention:

Zero return device

Patented in 2000
 In 1997, Lange introduced an advanced and precise automatic winding movement-the award-winning Sax-0-Mat movement with built-in zeroing device. When the crown is pulled up, the balance wheel is stopped, and the second hand returns to zero immediately , Just like a chronograph. Sax-0-Mat movement remains Langematik
 Basic movements of watches such as Perpetual and Saxonia ANNUAL CALENDAR. 1815 Tourbillon and Richard Lange
 Jumping
Seconds’ manual winding movement also has a zero reset function, which simplifies the time setting process. In the future models, the zero reset device uses an independent module design and is equipped with a clutch composed of multiple discs, so that the second hand can still operate smoothly during sudden shocks or rebounds.

2. Accurate jumping points

Patented in 2001
 The precision jumping points were originally installed on Lange’s first chronograph movement L951.1 for the Datograph. After 60 seconds, the precision jumping minute dial advances by one division, and it is not bad to stop timing even at the moment of crossing the zero position. So you can read the minutes at any time, no doubt about it. This patented device allows watchmakers to perfectly synchronize the jumping of the integrating disc when the movement is fully assembled. In the current watch series, all Datograph, Double
 Both Split and the latest Triple Split models are equipped with this device.

3. Detachment gear

Patented in 2005
 With a delicate split gear, Lange Double Split, Triple Split and other chronograph chronographs can prevent amplitude loss during the split timing. This device was patented in 2005. By pushing the push-button, the push-button can be separated from the chronograph central mandrel and the chronograph hands on the integrating disc mandrel, eliminating the wear and tear in the old design.

4. Stop-second device for tourbillon

Patented in 2008

 More than 200 years after Lange’s invention of the tourbillon, it was realized how to stop the vibration balance in the rotating tourbillon frame, so that the tourbillon watch can also accurately design the time. Pulling out the crown, a sophisticated lever system drives a movable V-spring toward the edge of the balance wheel. The balance wheel then stops. Press the crown, the ‘brake’ will be released, and the balance will start to swing again. This patented device is equipped with other devices in Lange
 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar, 1815 Tourbillon, Datograph Perpetual
Tourbillon.

5. Constant power escapement

Patented in 2010

 The patented constant-power escapement on all Zeitwerk models is located between the barrel and the balance wheel, and is responsible for adjusting the operation of the digital dial to advance it by one division every minute. At the same time, the device ensures that the balance wheel is driven by constant energy and maintains a stable rate during the entire power reserve period, regardless of the state of the watch’s winding device and how the switching program consumes energy.

6. Word jump device

Patented in 2011

 Zeitwerk models are equipped with precision word-jumping devices, which reflect the unambiguous and clear design. The display module consists of three discs, and its layout allows the wearer to easily read large numbers from left to right. The constant-power escapement slightly jumps, making the patented word-jumping device advance one by one until it reaches the right point, and the three digital dials advance at the same time.

7.Translucent dial coating

Patented in 2013

 The technical problem when developing the ‘Lumen’ dial is to use light energy to ‘charge’ the luminous material hidden in the dial. Lange’s expert solution is to apply a translucent material to the sapphire crystal dial to allow ultraviolet rays to pass through. Visible light transmission is attenuated by the high-contrast, clearly visible dial. In contrast, ultraviolet light waves can pass through. Zeitwerk
 ‘Luminous’, Grand Lange 1 ‘Lumen’, Grand Lange 1 Moon
Phase’s dial thus glows for hours in the dark.

8. Track moon phase display

Patented in 2014

 Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar
The patented trajectory moon phase display carried by ‘Terraluna’ shows the position of observers watching the moon, earth and sun in the northern hemisphere. The display device consists of three disks, namely the celestial disk, the moon phase disk below it, and the earth disk in the middle. In this layout, the balance wheel represents the position of the sun. The trajectory moon phase display accurately tracks the orbit of the moon on the 29th, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 3 seconds, and only one day of deviation occurs after 1058.

9. Delayed Digital Conversion

Patented in 2015

 To ensure Zeitwerk Minute
The function of the complex movement in the Repeater runs smoothly, and the engineer installs a precision fuse for the movement. For example, when the beeping device is operating, the digital disk cannot be advanced until the three-question sequence is completed. The worm gear of the three-question device is connected to the mandrel of the dial, once it is switched while the three-question device is in operation, it may cause component conflicts and damage the movement. The delay mechanism also ensures that the alarm sound must be consistent with the displayed time.

“Wolf Is Here” The New Hermes Arceau Series Awooooo! Watch

When you shout ‘Wolf is here’, it appears on the dial of the new Hermès Arceau Awooooo! Watch! This new watch is hand-made using enamel technology. A silver fur wolf stands under the starry sky and a new moon. The platinum case is like a delicate picture frame, which perfectly complements this delicate and vivid micro-painted landscape.

   Following the release of the beloved Grrrrr! Bear Enamel Watch in the fall of 2016, this time we welcome a wolf that looks at the moon, a new character in an animal illustrated book designed by Alice Shirley. This new Arceau watch is called ‘Awoooo!’ And is inspired by the Hermès men’s scarf collection. The picture depicts the charming but fearful white wolf in the myths and fairy tales appearing in the trees, using the micro-painted enamel process to present on the dial, emitting a dazzling wild light.

   In order to reproduce the exquisite beauty of the original design, the white wolf and the background of the starry sky are made with extremely detailed processes, making the pattern effect come to life. The craftsman first produced a double-sided translucent enamel dial, carefully polished to achieve a high degree of smoothness, and then dipped a variety of enamel powders and natural oils to paint the outline of the pattern with a very fine brush. Next, it needs to go through a continuous coloring process, including repeated firing and drying processes, and finally the gorgeous pattern can be presented to our eyes.

   The image of the wolf presents its nocturnal animal lifestyle in drawing style and rich gray tones. The starry night sky and a thin moon also evoke the cycle of nature, and the predator is the absolute protagonist. The overall tone of the scene contrasts with the white gold case. The top of the round case is crowned with stirrup-shaped lugs. It is equipped with a Hermès-made movement inside and a graphite matt alligator alligator strap. 40 years ago by Henri d ‘The classic design conceived by Origny highlights the elegance of this limited edition (only 8 pieces worldwide).

Details Of The History Of Watchmakers (On)

The development of watchmaking industry has gone through more than 500 years. In this long history, the watchmaking industry also has a different division of labor. They are responsible for manufacturing movements, dials, hands, cases, enamels. , Jewelry, and other positions, and the input of each role is based on culture, skills and enthusiasm. Culture is the medium of all creation and a resource for developing creativity that already exists. Knowledge of mathematics, astronomy and micromechanics is of great significance for manufacturing movements. At the same time, art culture and design experience are also essential.

 Whether handmade or with the help of machines, haute horlogeries are always exploring all the potential of human wisdom. Many basic tools have been used since ancient times. Files, saws, pliers, screwdrivers, drills, compasses … Although some of these tools have been replaced by automated and CNC machines and promoted production, but for watchmaking technology and art Research is never ending.

 Culture and knowledge can be passed from one generation to the next through language, and the hard work will be passed on to craftsmen who love perfect craftsmanship. In fact, fine watchmaking artists do not even consider the number of products, but inject a strong enthusiasm into their works. In short, culture is the source of inspiration, skills are absolutely necessary, and enthusiasm can develop more potential talents.

 In the late 13th century, clocks with escapement and hammer power mechanisms have appeared, where they now appear in France, Britain, Italy, and later Germany and Belgium. Although we can’t say exactly who made those clocks, the invention of these timers is very meaningful for human progress.

 The artisans who made clocks at that time were called ‘metal artisans’. It wasn’t until 1544 that the clockmaker became a legal occupation. At their request, the French king François I organized the clockmaker into a union. This is to prevent problems in product quality. When clockmakers are promoted to masters, they will not only improve their work, but also have the ability to support their lives. There will be imprints and even signatures in their works. Although these measures will protect the identity of the clockmaker, they are still under pressure from the goldsmith and try to prevent them from making precious metal items. From the beginning, goldsmiths retained the right to make gold or silver clocks.
 In fact, the 1646 Act even states that ‘goldsmiths or members of other unions are not allowed to directly or indirectly participate in the manufacture and sale of clocks, big or small, old or new, unless he is a master clockmaker.’ Despite these ordinances, the power of the clockmaker is still unable to compete with competitors and is still forced to struggle hard. Because the goldsmiths have a lot of resources, they can find more outlets in the manufacture of diversified gold and silver utensils, and the clockmakers have no close ties with the trade merchants in Paris.

Panerai Brand New Pendulum Clock

The annual Geneva International Watch Fair is about to begin. The reporting team in front of the Watch House has arrived in Geneva and will bring you the latest and fastest comprehensive watch fair report. The watch exhibition has now opened. Panerai’s latest masterpiece this year, limited to 30 pendulum clocks, has a power reserve of 8 days.

   Galileo’s pendulum is known as the ‘Measurer of Time’ and it marks a turning point in the history of horology as it opens the door to the present era. Now, with Panerai launching its new pendulum clock, this ancient discovery is once again alive. This work faithfully reproduces the instrument designed by Galileo, who used it to prove the law of isochronism of pendulum vibration. This discovery of Galileo in the seventeenth century brought a sea change, because it reduced the daily error of the clock from a few minutes to only a few seconds. The escapement wheel designed by this Tuscan scientist is considered to be the first freestyle escapement in history. Therefore, the invention of the pendulum clock has far-reaching historical significance. It contains profound technology and once again highlights Galileo, Close ties between Tuscany, science and Panerai. The application of the pendulum to timekeeping was a long and tortuous process: Galileo could not visualize an idea he had in 1641, because at that time he was almost blind, so the task was given to his son Vincenzo. (Vincenzo).
   The following year, Galileo died, and the project was put on the shelf for a long time. Until 1649, his son decided to finish it. Vincenzo approached a blacksmith to make the rough iron frame, escapement wheel, and pinion rough, and he himself cut the teeth of the escapement. Unfortunately, he also died a few months later. This model, which has not yet been completed but may work, has been forgotten for a while. By 1659, at the request of Leopoldo de ‘Medici, Galileo’s friend and biographer Vincenzo Viviani found the model and accompanied the drawing Bring it to Prince Florence. Only the latter survives, because all parts of the machine itself have been lost: the drawings now stored in Florence illustrate the structure of the instrument and its operating principle, and also allow us to intuitively understand the ideas proposed by Galileo many years ago and so on Conception of the Law of Time.
   Florence clockmaker Eustachio Porcellotti created a clock from this original drawing in 1887, which is now preserved in the Galileo Museum in Florence. Panerai’s outstanding new works are exactly the same as those of Polcellotti. The pendulum clock is 35.6 cm high, 18.5 cm wide, and 11.1 cm thick: the dimensions of this table clock follow the design of the original drawing and have been confirmed by several other reproductions. Its frame consists of two motherboards. They are not made of iron like the original clock and Polcellotti version, but are made of nickel-palladium-plated brass. The top is connected to the crossbar and the bottom is traditional. It is fixed with a conical pin. The upper crossbar carries the escapement and the pendulum pendulum, and the lower crossbar connects the lower parts of the frame plate, which form four scroll-shaped feet. The barrel is located between the base and the clock dial. The barrel of the barrel contains 4.10 meters of spring, which can continuously power the pendulum clock for 8 days. Use the winding key to rotate the square winding handle to wind the pendulum clock. A spring-equipped ratchet is installed above the center of the barrel to prevent the mainspring from unwinding. Further up is the dial with Roman numerals. Like the 1887 model, it uses black lacquered hands. The gears with hand-modified teeth, the clock frame around the clock dial, the barrel and other details are all gold-plated.

The most important part of the pendulum clock is the speed balance wheel and escapement designed by Galileo. This device includes an escape wheel with 12 pins on the side and 12 edges cut into the teeth; and three levers, which can be seen by looking at the pendulum clock from the front, one on the left and two on the left. On the right. The end of the longest lever on the left is hook-shaped and is a stop lever; the two on the right are arranged in a scissors shape, which are a release lever and an impact lever, respectively. When the escape wheel is in the stop phase, the pendulum has no contact at all, so this device is called a ‘freestyle escapement’. The pendulum itself is composed of a metal rod and a double-convex ovoid pendulum at the end, and the screws are used to adjust the length of time the pendulum vibrates. There is a place on the bottom cross bar for storing the clock winding key.
