@ HODINKEE wrote yesterday: a watch, the body is the body, and the movement is the meat; when it works, it is a soul-mate. This partner will not only witness the moment and show your personality for you, but also save your life in critical moments. Rest assured, this is not a bragging text of the running table, and the protagonist of this article is not Rolex, but the following three: 1. US Marine Lieutenant-Barry Jones; 2. His paramedic-Lori Lorrie McLaughlin; 3, Tudor Submariner Ref. 7928 with Barry on the Vietnam War. Battlefield Story In 1967, Barry spent $ 150 on a Tudor water ghost. For him, this is a suitable price list, equivalent to one-third of his monthly military budget, and has a similar configuration to Rolex. In August 1968, Barry carried out his mission in Da Nang. When he gave Colt 45 a good load, put a few grenades, and went forward against the bullet rain, he was unfortunately shot. There were three shots in the whole body, one leg, one side waist, and one shot on the wrist, the water ghost blocked him. The bullet hit the lugs unbiasedly. Under the instant impact and deformation, the raw ears popped out directly. When the paramedic Lori rushed to deal with the wound for Barry, the watch was no longer worn on his wrist, but hung. After picking up the water ghost for Barry, Lori asked how to dispose of the scrapped watch. He said, ‘Take it away for me.’ After the original owner withdrew from the battlefield and returned to the country, his comrades-in-arms began their new lives. It was not until last year that Barry and Lori re-established contact. For half a century, Lori has kept this water ghost safe with other memories. Finally, this heroic watch belongs to its owner. The day Barry received the watch from Lori was exactly 50 years ago when he took off his watch for him. The coincidence in the dark makes this bond-like water ghost more meaningful. And this life-and-death friendship is hard for ordinary people to empathize with. Tudor Water Ghost Ref.7928 Ref.7928 is a model after the ‘Big Crown’ Ref.7924. From 1959 to 1967, the model change cycle took eight years and shared many Rolex parts. It is the first Tudor watch with the introduction of crown guards, from square crown guards to pointed crown guards to round crown guards to dials without dials. There are 4 versions. Ref.7928 in the previous story is the ultimate version of Tudor Water Ghost. In earlier versions, the minute scale was printed inside the circle, while the scale of this watch extended to the edge, eliminating the word circle. -End- Reference: 1.JAMES STACEY-The Long Return: Two Men, Fifty Years, And The Tudor That Took A Bullet In Vietnam 2.Tudor History The Submariners: From 1954 to 1968

Protagonist in this issue: Rolex 116508 Lujindi mentioned Rolex’s super-public price, then there must be the name of Lujindi 116508! Leaving aside the speculation and crash this year, the price of Lujindi has been relatively stable recently. The starting price of the secondary market has been almost the same as the public price. This depends on the year, but some can be lower than the public price. This price is more suitable to start, and it is expected that the price drop will be extremely low next. The 116508 disk under the micro-shooting lens talked about Rolex. In addition to the topics of super price, value preservation, and materials, its movement durability has also been praised. Among its many movements, the 4130 has outstanding performance and can have its own stable chronograph movement, which is definitely the strength of the brand. The 4130 movement 116508 Rolex safety buckle on this 116508 is still the same sentence. The quality of a movement is never measured by its durability. The value of a watch is not its accuracy. But I also have to admit that Rolex is indeed testing this part in the years of identification and testing, which is most worrying. When I met Rolex in a bunch of watches, I was very reliable in testing. This is the truth. 116508 18ct Oyster Strap Rolex is fully stocked with material and weighs the scales. Today’s Rolex 116508 is an 18-year watch. The watch has been refurbished twice, but the movement has not moved. The purpose is to look at the 4130 movement. After using it for one year, the real state (which cannot represent all 4130 movements) weighs 197g. There are currently 10 and a half sections. The entire surface of the watch under the 116508 disk microphoto lens is very good. After all, it was Daytona, 18 years old. The face plate does not have any marks such as oxidation. I removed the model at the 12 o’clock case, and the lug connection was not stained. But this may also be due to refurbished reasons. The movement is in good condition and unmaintained. The Parachrom niobium-zircon hairspring equipped on it is still very short for Rolex watches, and it will not cause any problems. The movement was intended to be dismantled for everyone to see, but because the length is too long, I still give up and come back next time. Official Rolex parameters of 116508 can be seen in the official parameters written to us, the 4130 movement averages within ± two seconds per day. 4130’s travel time accuracy is evident. Then how about it, let’s go to the machine to see. Degauss the data before detecting it. The display of the witschi automatic demagnetizer used this time shows that the non-magnetization is not only related to the niobium-zirconium hairspring, but also to Rolex’s bottom, which is less susceptible to magnetism. Since it is not magnetized, we will begin to test the travel time line. The current time test still used the three meter calibration instruments from the previous period. The data of the three instruments is enough to explain. The next time a few more tests are used, the 600 domestic meter calibration instrument is not sensitive enough. The six-azimuth test process shows the six-azimuth data. The six-azimuth final data is still possible, except that the travel time of the upper position is slightly higher and the swing is lower. The other face values are relatively stable. Parallax is not significant. In view of the high sensitivity of this instrument, when measuring Rolex data, the polarization is high, so the polarization data is for reference only, and the polarization of a few planes is indeed not good. Witschi’s another model of the domestic meter calibration data shows that the surface data of this watch is very stable. The test data of the domestic calibration meter is relatively single and the sensitivity is slightly worse, so the lines appear extremely stable. To sum up, after using this Rolex for one year, the entire travel time is still stable, but if you look at the six directions, it can not reach the factory value of plus or minus two seconds on each side. Water test machine test data process display waterproof test Pass the waterproof coefficient to show that the selected waterproof coefficient is P5, the positive pressure is 1bar, the waterproof test has passed. After dismantling the refurbished second watch, the water resistance is no longer high. Daytona is a land-based chronograph, and the 1bar waterproof test is enough for daily use. The results of this test, I think is still expected. Even if the Rolex movement is stable, it will not maintain the accuracy of the factory when it is used. The official data is the final conclusion after a certain amount of testing, but after the actual watch is started, there will be deviations, not to mention that the environment for daily use is not a laboratory environment. This is like waterproofing. Laboratory data does not mean that the watch can actually be placed so deep in water. There are many factors in the doping. Travel time accuracy and durability are the points that many watch friends care about, and Rolex hits most people’s hearts in this regard. However, it does not mean that other brands cannot or cannot be compared, just that the positioning and choice are different. Different routes. What do you care about most when choosing a table?

The self-produced movement is a symbol of brand positioning and strength. Although it cannot be said that a self-produced movement is more sturdy and durable than the ETA core, if a brand watch has the ability to produce its own movement No, it is awkward whether it is on the surface or inside, so in recent years, some brand watches have been vigorously developing self-produced movements. Although it is no longer related to ETA movements, it can also explain the self-produced machine The importance of the core, today the Watch House recommends three brand watches equipped with self-produced movements.

This ancient craft is world-renowned and loved by the fashion industry. Hublot takes the art of fusion to a new climax, aiming to lead the embroidery art to bid farewell to the traditional field and give it a new identity. Therefore, it has become associated with the legendary brand Bischoff, which creates embroidery products for haute couture. As the top embroidery company in Switzerland, Bischoff has a leading position in the industry in terms of creativity, product performance and innovation, and enjoys a worldwide reputation. Bischoff’s studio is located in St. Gallen near Zurich, where artisans created specially commissioned fluorescent embroidery, carefully embroidered arabic floral ornaments on the basis of organza, and presented the dial’s ‘skull’ design in detail.
Eye-catching fluorescent lace contrasts with black ceramic, adding a deeper texture to the watch’s original design.

Watch is one of the few fine jewelry for men. It reflects the personality and taste of a man, and sometimes also represents a kind of wealth. In all watch types, the timing can be complicated but fun. A kind of good sex, chronograph is also one of the few types of watches that directly interact with the watch. Dynamic features, complex dials, and exquisite internal structures have fascinated many men. Therefore, men who like watches often pay attention to timing, and its practicality is also impressive. Today, we have selected some chronographs for table friends who like the chronograph function. They all have one thing in common, which is to give the ideal choice from a comprehensive consideration of brand, price, performance, and craftsmanship, which may not be the best. , But definitely worth considering.
Cost-effective-Tissot Durul Chronograph
Model: T099.427.16.058.00 Price: ¥ 7450
Within 10,000, it is more difficult to want a mechanical chronograph. If you want to buy domestically made, of course, no problem, many choices and low prices, but as a Swiss ‘national watch’, Tissot is the overlord of this price range. How can I not use the chronograph for everyone. Therefore, Tissot has always had a chronograph, changed from Lemania 5100, and the ETA model is C01.211. It allows the core brands of Swatch Group such as Tissot and Certina to have complex chronographs in the thousand yuan level. Many people see the dial of this watch and think that it is a 7750 movement. Actually, the 7750 movement is very expensive. Even Tissot and Mido, the price is over 10,000. However, in order to avoid intra-group competition, most of Tissot The chronograph uses this C01.211, while Mido has been using 7750/7753 and its modifications.
This watch is a chronograph model of the Tissot Durul series. Of course, the Tissot PRC 200 series, Kutu series, and the previous starfish series are also used. The price is generally more than 7,000 to 8,000, which is the most common among Swiss brands. One of the cost-effective watches, only the public price and counters are mentioned here, because the price changes too much when it comes to events or other channels, and it is impossible to refer to them. If you want to buy a mechanical chronograph for a few thousand yuan, then it is recommended that you consider this chronograph from Tissot Durul.
Brand, price and performance-Longines master chronograph
Model: L2.6184.108.40.206 Reference Price: ￥ 19000
When the price comes to more than 10,000, then you can consider the Longines master craftsman timepiece. This watch is an evergreen model, but the launch year is relatively long. Although it is available, it is not easy to find. Please go to the Longines counter to ask. This watch is one of Longines’ most popular chronographs because it costs less than 20,000. Today, most Longines chronographs have cost more than 25,000 or even 30,000. The reason why its price is lower than other models is because it uses the L 696 self-winding movement, which is a Longines version of the 7753 movement, and Longines currently uses more chronograph with column wheels for ETA. The L 688 movement, which is a higher specification self-winding chronograph movement.
Many watches that like Longines masterpieces with complex functions, that is, models with full calendar, chronograph and moon phases, cost more than 20,000 yuan, only a few thousand yuan more than this watch, but the functions are not complicated. Less, the design is beautiful, but because of this, its failure rate is relatively high, maintenance costs will go up, so if you like timing, this simpler chronograph is more recommended. At the same time, with a price of more than 10,000 yuan, Longines’s popularity advantage is still very considerable.
Understated elegance-Baume & Mercier Chronometer
Model: M0A10330 Price: ￥ 24600
Going further, what kind of chronograph can we choose? This is actually a bit tangled, because at this level of public price, first of all, you can’t buy any self-produced chronograph, and secondly, you feel that buying a general-purpose chronograph is a bit expensive, so the only thing that is optimistic may be Brand. Therefore, the Baume & Mercier Chronometer is a relatively good choice for this price. The Baume & Mercier brand first belongs to the entry-level high-end brand, but the niche is very elegant, low-key but more luxurious. This watch has a classic design, blue steel hands, white dial, extremely elegant, and the movement is a conventional 7750, but Baume & Mercier will still do some more detailed finishing, it is better than the brand and design.
Entry-level self-produced chronograph fighter-Tag Heuer Carrera 1887 chronograph
Model: CAR2014.FC6235 Price: ￥ 34850
When the budget is increased to more than 30,000, the choice of chronograph will become very rich, I still recommend the Tag Heuer 1887 chronograph, of course, my purpose is to bring their own, without taking into account factors such as subsequent change of hands. Tag Heuer itself is very prestigious in the field of timekeeping, and its technical level is also very high. The 1887 chronograph is no longer the main force of the brand because it has been changed to Heuer 01 and the design has changed too much, but I prefer to change Before Calera 1887 chronograph. Some people like Monaco and think that it is the classic model of TAG Heuer timing, but the square watch is not acceptable to everyone, and it is not as widely used as Carrera.
The round case is simple and elegant. The black dial is very stable. The gold-plated hands and scales highlight the sense of luxury on the black dial. The round keys are the most classic taste of the chronograph. Deyang City, the concave sub dial enhances the three-dimensional impression of the dial. . More importantly, 1887 is a TAG Heuer self-made movement (with Seiko’s genes), but equipped with a column-wheel timing system, sensitive operation and excellent feel, which cannot be analogized by 7750. In addition, Tag Heuer is also a relatively advanced professional watchmaking brand. From all levels, it is an fighter in the entry-level self-produced movement.

To say that the more than 30,000 most popular chronographs are definitely the special pilot chronographs of IWC pilots, the IWC brand itself is positioned at the high end, and Rolex and Omega are at the same level. According to the conventional, this brand is complicated Watches, how can they sell more than 30,000, so everyone is actually blessed, because IWC uses a general-purpose movement, and after the brand’s rectification, compared with the conventional general-purpose movement, the performance has improved, and the feel is much better, But the price was controlled within 40,000, so it became the ‘king of time’ at this price. IWC already has its own entry-level chronograph movement with a price of more than 50,000 to 60,000. If it is replaced in all directions, then more than 30,000 will no longer be able to buy IWC chronographs, of course this is temporarily It is impossible, everyone understands the reason.
In addition to being big enough, this watch has a blue dial, brown leather strap, and the iconic design of the pilot series, so the design is very beautiful, very colorful and bright. At the same time, it is a special ‘Little Prince’ with charitable meaning. There is a sculpture of the Little Prince behind it, so it contains a deep meaning. When all these points come together, it’s obviously hard to resist the kind of likes it gives you.

Everyone has heard of the reputation of Super Speed. Its classic design has changed a lot in the half century since the moon landing, but the charm is still there. Obviously, this watch can see the beauty of Omega’s ultra-thin reliable tools. Its scale is simple and clear, the time is easy to read, and the function is practical. The sub-plates at 3 and 9 o’clock. The scales are marked with triangles. It is the same as the original design.
Another fascinating charm of Speedmaster is the movement, which is equipped with a 1861 manual-winding chronograph movement. This movement is in the same vein as the Omega Speedmaster Moon Landing Watch. Although some models have undergone changes in the middle, the machine The core is the same structure, but the modification is different. The inner charm has not changed.

Really Good Choice-Tudor Kai Cheng Biwan Chronograph
Model: 79350 Reference Price: ￥ 40000
But when the budget came to around 40,000, there was another bottleneck, because the self-produced chronograph movements of the big brands were obviously higher than this price, and the chronographs using general-purpose movements were almost at their peak. If you go up, the water will be a little bit big, unless it is a high change. But not without choice, Tudor brought the Qicheng Biwan chronograph in 2017, and it became hot all of a sudden, because this is the first self-made automatic chronograph of Tudor, plus the God Rudder Qicheng Biwan series is really hot these years, The market is often out of stock, and can only be bought in some less busy cities. Of course, the timing movement of this Tudor watch comes from Breitling’s B01. We know that Breitling’s B01 is one of Breitling’s fist products. Breitling equipped with this movement will be mentioned in a moment. When it was used in the Tudor brand, some modifications were made. For example, it was replaced with a silicon hairspring. The 30-minute timer was changed to Tudor’s iconic 45-minute timer. The power was still 70 hours. The Tudor standard was used for decoration. After the observatory certification, it is clear that it is not as advanced as Breitling’s own B01, so the price can reach about 40,000, but after all, its performance is still strong.
Professional aviation timing-Breitling B01
Model: AB012012 | BB01 | 435X | A20BA.1 Price: ￥ 55600
It should be said that this watch should not be classified here because it is more than the price range of the reservation. Breitling is the most popular and most iconic chronograph-aviation chronograph B01, the price is 55,600, so I barely put it Here it is. Breitling was previously operated independently, but is now acquired by a non-luxury consortium. It is not well known in the country, but it does not prevent it from being a good professional watch brand, especially in aviation timekeeping. It should be said that The only brand that makes serious professional aviation chronographs, because the brand has always had a close relationship with the field of flight. Many other brands have not had much intersection with the flying business, just because of the success of the products and past connections, they have been recognized.
The professional scale that reflects Breitling aviation timekeeping is the flight slider on the watch. This tool is used in combination with the bezel and the outer edge of the dial. It needs to be familiar with some necessary parameters during the flight to understand its function. There are instructions on how to use it, you can refer to the manual of Breitling’s official website. Of course, this function is not related to the B01 movement, it is only a conversion tool, not a mechanically implemented function.
Summary: 50,000 yuan is the beginning of self-production timing for high-end brands. Below this, most of them are general-purpose movements and modifications. Although it can not be said that self-production is better and better than general-purpose movements, but it comes from value. That said, it has the brand’s personality, specificity, and technology, so its value is obviously higher. However, under 50,000 yuan, there are still many very good chronographs available. Timing is a stepping stone into complex mechanical watches.
