On Monday morning, Lin Junjie posted a group photo with many celebrity friends on Weibo: ‘Let’s team up to watch the US Open!’ In the photo, there were not only Hou Li Li, Wang Rongdan, Lei Jiayin’s super-luxury star lineup in various fields has attracted the attention of many fans. The picture comes from: Famous singer @ 林俊杰 Sina Weibo It is said that these people met after a recent New York Fashion Week and met for a “vacation” watching game . Although the stars of this selfie are all casual in appearance, they are very attractive and very eye-catching! This year’s U.S. Open won Rafael Nadal from Spain, holding his 19th Grand Slam trophy-12 French Open, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 4 US Open In addition, it has won the Beijing Olympics singles championship and the Rio Olympics men’s doubles championship. Not only is he a Grand Slam winner, he is also one of two gold slam winners in the history of male athletes. So, what watch did Nadal wear? Unlike other tennis players, the endorsement watch was worn only during the interview or award ceremony after the game. Nadal wore the watch throughout the game. Although Nadal took the picture with his left hand and wore the watch with his right hand, when he hit back with both hands, the watch would still be subjected to high-intensity impact, not to mention, what he wore was always regarded as complicated and delicate. Tourbillon watch. What watch is so good? The answer is Richard Mill. Richard Mille and Nadal have cooperated for many years. The watch RM027 specially made for Nadal has also come to the fourth generation RM027-03. Each generation of RM027 has different structures and materials, but both Contains extremely high technical content. The eye-catching yellow with bright red represents the color of the Spanish flag. The center of the plate is visually designed as a ‘bull’, which is more reminiscent of Nadal’s heroic attitude of never giving up on the field. The case is made of TPT® quartz layer and TPT® carbon fiber layer. Quartz and carbon fiber are the material. TPT refers to the patented thin-layer composite process. It is hard and lightweight, allowing the tourbillon movement protected by it to withstand. Up to 10,000G impact force. Appreciate the four generations of RM027 watches. The first generation of RM027 movements weighs 3.83 grams and the entire watch weighs less than 20 grams. The second-generation RM027-01 movement weighs 3.5 grams and the entire watch weighs 18.83 grams, which is equal to the weight of three pieces of one yuan, which is incredible. However, the third and fourth generation of RM027-2 and RM027-3, the brand did not release weight data, but I tried on the real watch, it is indeed light, I believe the weight will not be far from the previous two generations. Such a lightweight watch is a fashion point for athletes in sports events. At the moment when the golf ball is struggling to swing, a great impact force may be generated, which may cause the movement parts to fall off or the hairspring to be deformed. Therefore, it is generally not recommended to wear a watch when playing to avoid damage. If you want to wear a watch while engaged in intense sports, weight reduction is naturally one direction. The lighter the weight, the smaller the impact when subjected to external forces. Omega’s Aqua Terra Extra Light watch followed the June launch of the Seamaster Ultra Deep professional diving watch, which broke the record and raised the waterproof depth to 15,000 meters. Recently, Omega has released another Ultra watch-the hippocampus series. Aqua Terra ‘Ultra Light’ watch. How light? With a sports fabric strap, it weighs only 55 grams, which is half or even a third of the weight of a typical watch. The watch is made of γ-titanium alloy for the case, back and crown. It is said that this unique alloy is lighter and harder than traditional titanium, and also has high corrosion resistance. It was widely used in the aviation industry before It is now adopted by Omega. Through a series of sophisticated research and tests, the amount of dial material is reduced, and the weight of the watch is further reduced without affecting the visual effect of the dial. In addition to the hidden spring crown, this watch also has a major feature, that is, the retractable crown, which can be stowed into the case when there is no need to manually wind and adjust the time. Press it when you want to use it The crown will pop up. To prevent strong reflections of the sun, the watch is matte-finished and has a bright color scheme in red, green and blue on the small aluminum seconds hand, the Seamaster logo, every 15-minute mark and the stitching of the strap. Kind of choice. In addition to the fabric strap, the strap is also equipped with a rubber strap. The watch is equipped with the brand’s first titanium metal movement 8928. All plywood is made of ceramic titanium, which not only reduces component wear, but also gives the movement a unique dark gray. This manual-winding mechanical movement with coaxial escapement is certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) for rigorous observatory certification. It can withstand strong magnetic interference of 15,000 Gauss and has a 5-year warranty. Super light weight, anti-collision hidden crown, anti-sun radiation coating, anti-perspirant strap … all kinds of designs point, this is a watch specially designed for athletes. That’s right, this watch was developed in cooperation with golfer Rory McIlroy. Rory McIlroy is an omega golf celebrity ambassador. After a period of low tide, the 2018 ~ 2019 season re-emerged, winning three tournaments including the Tour Championship, Players Championship and RBC Canada Open. He also won the FedEx Cup Finals trophy for the second time, and a $ 15 million prize was awarded. He is also the second player to win the FedEx Cup twice after Tiger Woods.

Lin Dan, 36, has long been able to retire gloriously, and now he is fighting hard on the field for the fifth Olympic Games The unremitting efforts on the journey, just such courage and perseverance deserve everyone’s respect. Lin Dan had glorious years. In 2016, when he was the ambassador of Montblanc, the brand created a limited concept watch for him. The watch was made of DLC-coated titanium and the special ‘ITR²®Kevlar® / ‘Carbon materials’, I do n’t know material science, naturally I do n’t know the mysterious name, but according to the press release, this composite material is a combination of carbon nanotube-filled synthetic resin and carbon fiber, excluding straps and wrists. The weight of the watch is only 14.88 grams, which is very amazing. However, at the end of the same year, Lin Dan burst into a derailment incident during his wife’s pregnancy, which temporarily caused the ‘Super Dan’ person to collapse, and also fell from the Montblanc spokesman throne. This concept table, after 3 years, has not The news of further mass production is really ‘Yellow Crane is gone forever, and the clouds are three years long.’ Bvlagri Octavia Finissimo series manual winding three-question carbon fiber watch Previous article These ultra-light watches specially designed for athletes, in addition to Richard Mill’s Nadal watch is equipped with a tourbillon complication, the other two are three-pin basic models, but the tourbillon just adds a rotating frame to the speed regulating mechanism, and it will not increase the movement itself. A lot of weight, but this ultra-light watch is not easy, it has the function of minute repeater. In 2016, Bvlgari launched the Octo Finissimo series manual winding minute repeater watch with a thickness of only 6.85 mm, setting an ultra-thin record for minute repeaters. Originally made of titanium, in 2018, based on the original ultra-thin minute repeater, Bulgari replaced carbon alloy with titanium fiber as the watch material. In addition to the minute repeater sound has been optimized, the watch’s Weight, the weight of a minute repeater is only 47 grams, it is incredible! Now the technology of composite carbon fiber is very mature. Its advantages are light weight, wear resistance, high temperature resistance, and corrosion resistance. I believe that more and more brands will gradually adopt it, and it will not only be used on the case and the movement parts. Even the balance spring can be seen. However, carbon fiber watches always give a cold post-industrial feel, which is very different from the warm texture of traditional watches. Which one do you like? That’s the opinion of others. Technology is changing with each passing day. Today’s watches want to be as thin as 1 millimeter, want daily errors to be as small as 1 second, and want to be as light as 1 gram. They need to invest huge manpower, material resources, financial resources and time. Advanced R & D.
