Pursuing speed and conquering speed is the desire of all men. Therefore, there are many speed-related sports and events, such as the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, which is also commonly known as ‘F1’. Even a woman like me who does not care about sports events, I heard about it.
Formula 1 competition scene
Formula 1’s most noticed period in China should be the heyday of ‘Car King’ Schumacher, from the late 1990s to the early millennium, in his 16-year career, almost every record was set. The seven championships have deeply imprinted his name on the historical milestone of Formula One Formula One. Even China, which has only been in contact with this event since the 1990s, has an indelible passion for F1.
F1 seems to be far away, or even out of reach. It is not a sport that ordinary people can control, nor is it an event that we can easily participate in. But in this highest level of racing today, our heart beats every time the engine sounds. In addition to the team’s technology, team cooperation, and the talent and strength of the driver, the support for the car to reach the top speed has a great relationship with the development of the car and the use of new materials. Each time a new record is created, it means that the elements that make up speed have been renewed.
Richard Mill’s three partner teams
Of the fine watch brands, RICHARD MILLE, who has an almost enthusiastic love for F1, certainly will not miss the moment to witness every moment of speed. The same pursuit of excitement, speed and breakthrough Richard Mille brand has deep roots with F1. Jean Todt, the brand’s best friend, is the current FIA President. To this end, Richard Mill has launched three masterpieces of limited edition Jean Todt watches, namely: RM 11-03, RM 050 and RM 056 Jean The 50th anniversary of Todt’s career, to commemorate his fifty years of racing roar. And what many people don’t know is that the famous international movie star Michelle Yeoh, who is also a close friend of the RICHARD MILLE brand, is actually Jean Todt’s fiancee. At the Shanghai International Circuit on April 14 this year, the two appeared together at the scene.

The timing of F1 races is not multi-year, using a single annual league system, accumulating annual points to determine the performance of drivers and teams in order to produce a championship. Of all the competitions held in the F1 competition, Europe is the most hosted, North America is the second, and Oceania is the least. There are 16 to 17 races planned each year (20 races in the 2012 season), usually starting around mid-March and ending the season at the end of October. The Shanghai F1 circuit, which started in October 2002 and was completed in June 2004, has also witnessed countless glories.
On the Shanghai International Circuit on April 14th, ten teams and 20 drivers drove fiercely on the racing track. Three teams of RICHARD MILLE include Alfa Romeo Racing and Haas F1 ( Haas F1 Team) and the McLaren F1 Team as we know it.

The three teams each have their own characteristics. Whether it is from the technical strength of the driver or the overall coordination of the team, the three teams will not disappoint the audience. Just like RICHARD MILLE, it never disappointed us. When it comes to the history of innovation in watchmaking, RICHARD MILLE must be among the best. Adopting high-tech technology, integrating cutting-edge thinking and integration, each time RICHARD MILLE launches a new watch, it will redefine the concept of watch technology in the industry.

As we all know, mechanical watches use clockwork as the driving force and rely on the balance wheel speed control system to control the watch’s operation. The accuracy of its travel time is affected by many internal and external factors. Moreover, the higher the frequency of the oscillator, the more stable the oscillation, the stronger the anti-interference ability, and the more accurate the watch is. The oscillating frequency of Citizen mechanical watches is 6Hz / S or 8Hz / S (common mechanical watches are limited to its principle, and the oscillating frequency is generally between 5-10Hz / S). In addition, the vibration or vibration caused by external forces on the watch, full or half-winding of the mainspring, etc., will also affect the accuracy of the mechanical watch.
The national technical standard for the accuracy of the mechanical watch travel time is: the allowable error within 24 hours, superior product -10 ～ + 25 seconds; first-class product -20 ～ + 50 seconds; qualified product -40 ～ + 75 seconds.
The accuracy standard of the mechanical watch travel time specified by the Citizen Corporation is that the 24-hour error is within -20 to +40 seconds, which is judged to be a pass, which is quite between the first-class products of national standards.
Citizen watch timing method
First, the crown is pulled out of second gear to adjust the time.
2. Don’t adjust the time and its Citizen watch function during the period from 23:00 to 5:00 in the evening, so as not to damage the parts.
3. The small dial at 6 o’clock in the dial is a 24-hour display. It is rotated with the hour hand when adjusting the time, so this function is a 24-hour clock.
4. The lower right button of the Citizen watch is for adjusting the month, and the small dial at 3 o’clock in the dial displays. The month is 12 jumps per lap. If it’s a calendar, jump 31 times in a circle.
5. The upper right button of the Citizen watch is to adjust the day of the week, and the small dial at 9 o’clock in the dial displays. The function of the week is to jump 7 times in a lap or 14 times a multiple of 7. That is: once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
6. First, loosen the button in the middle of the Citizen watch. After unscrewing, the crown is rotated when it is not pulled out. It is recommended that the Nishitetsu watch or long-set watch be wound about 30 times. The watch reserves some power to avoid pauses or inaccurate timing caused by insufficient activity.
Seven, pull back and turn the clock two circles to stop at 7 o’clock. Why do you do this? Because the new Citizen watch is not running, the following functions will be stuck. If it has not been worn for a long time, it is recommended that the operation does not damage the movement. Then pull out the crown one stop, it is the date of adjustment, 1-31, if you encounter a month with only 30 days, you must manually adjust the 31st.

古老 This ancient material is an alloy of copper and pure tin, which has excellent resistance to seawater and air corrosion. In addition to its extremely high structural strength, it also retains the soft hue of the raw materials. With the passage of time, the green rust color formed on its surface creates a more rustic feel. The traces of time make each watch unique and individual. Equipped with P.9000 self-winding movement, limited edition of 3,000.
As we have seen in the past (especially on this year’s BASALWORLD), the two materials of titanium and high-tech ceramics have become very popular in the watch industry today. In fact, not only watches, they also gather in the jewelry industry. It became quite popular.
As we all know, titanium and high-tech ceramics are very hard, leaving no scratches like precious metals and stainless steel. Ceramic is the same as new no matter how long it is used, while titanium is new and not new, and old is not too old. First of all, it gives a lasting, eternal feeling.
Compared with ceramics, titanium has a completely opposite texture to traditional luxury products: traditional luxury products, no matter which leather, fabric, precious metal, or polished stainless steel is used to induce consumers to produce The strong preference of the so-called ‘this is best’ and ‘it must be it’ is for the purpose. But the ideal of using titanium metal to make watches does not lie in this. What it wants to do is to give consumers a feeling of ‘this is good’, similar to the design effect of ‘MUJI’.
Of course, ‘this is good’ is not a requirement for quality. For example, people think that Blancpain, Vacheron Constantin and Piaget, which are famous for making high-end and precious metal watches, have successively developed titanium styles in recent years. This is obviously not to use cheap materials in order to reduce costs, nor is it to reduce the price to simplify the production process. On the contrary, these non-precious metal watches have a very high level of production, raising the feeling of ‘this is good’ to a unique level of taste, and the price is almost limited compared to gold watches. Moreover, they still adopt the usual luxury approach: use novel materials to emphasize their uniqueness, advertise their value through limited production, and create loyal consumers willing to accept their prices as their ultimate goal.
Many friends will always encounter this problem when traveling or traveling. If you are in a country with a different time zone, the watch you wear cannot directly change the time in the time zone. Today, the Watch House recommends three two-time watches for you to travel with zero burden.
