The sound of time in a mechanical Nixon watch

The English word “Clock” comes from the middle Dutch “Clocca” and the “Clocca” itself comes from the later Latin “Clocca”, meaning bell. The earliest mechanical clock does not have a disk, and when it rings. In the 14th century, mechanical timepieces spread throughout medieval Europe. As the clock became easier to carry, the Watch was born, first in a bag (i.e., pocket Watch) and later with a wrist (also known as a wristwatch). The French word “Montre” has the meaning of “display”, and a pocket Cheap Nixon watches and a watch are usually displayed on the disk. But there are Nixon Watchess that, in addition to regular ticks, can make time “smell”. In this article, we will introduce the noisy Nixon Watches, the questionnaire, the big self-ming, the small self-ming, the music Nixon Watches, and the other doll watches, listening to the music of time.


Alarm clock

Generally speaking, the alarm clock will send a signal at a specific time. Perhaps everyone has cursed the noise, but few can deny its usefulness, which may be one of the oldest forms of tabulation. The earliest alarm clocks were fixed, and by the 16th century, with the development of communication and travel, noisy mechanisms were incorporated into pocket watches to travel around the world.
Two of the most iconic modern ring watches: the Cricket ring and the Memovox alarm clock.
In 1908, she won the first patent for a noisy wristwatch. In 1947, the legend of the Cricket crickets, the sound of the ring, raised the dimension of the alarm clock, making the mechanism really spread. I have to mention that there is also the product home, in the early 1950s, the brand launched the first Memovox to automatically wind the wrist watch. The latter two brands also produce diving wristwatches, which are equipped with a clear and audible sound mechanism to remind divers to return to the surface of the water.
The Cal.1241 automatic winding machine core, the sound hammer (1) percussion spring (2) to achieve the alarm function.
The principle of a traditional mechanical alarm clock, usually by a clockwork hammer, striking a loud part: a bell, a reed, or a case. The noise mechanism is coupled with the machine core, and the signal is triggered at the desired time through the gear control CAM.
(Repeater)
A Nixon Watchesis a mechanical watch that is reported on demand by activating a button or a handle. The Nixon Watchesis divided into different types, from the simple time Nixon Watchesto the detailed statement. For example, a Quarter Repeater will be reported in one tone and in another. 5-minute Repeater will be reported for the hour and then the number of five minutes. Minute Repeater will report with a low pitch (” when “), a high-pitched (tinkling), and a high pitch (ding).

Now the tabulation industry rarely produces five-minute questionnaires, because watchmakers prefer to choose three. The newspaper is the most complex mechanical structure, requiring a high level of watchmaking skills. Thus, such chronometers are still quite rare.
The invention of the Nixon Watches was invented long before the invention of electricity, so that people could know the time at night. In 1676, Edward Barlow, a British watchmaker, invented the pinion reporting mechanism (also known as the first “clock”), defining the basic principles. A few years later, the first question of the “pocket watch” was controversial. Edward Barlow and Daniel Quare argued that they were the inventors, and the court sided with the latter.
Jiang shidanton 1731 ask the ultra-thin machine core. The front of the machine (right) shows the complexity of the three-question mechanism, especially the CAM and rack structure. Time (time, minute, minute) by the mechanism of the worm CAM “memory”. When the three ask button or the handle is activated, the probe reads the information on each CAM and passes the information to the rack, making the hammer click on the set order and the corresponding times. On the back of the machine core (left), you can see two sound hammers, hardened steel notes surrounding the core, and a hollow spring box that provides power to the gear system.
The watchmaker attaches great importance to the sound quality of the Nixon Watches, and always adjusts the parameters patiently to obtain the loudest, most pure and richest sound. For example, the sound spring must be set in a perfect position and finely tuned until the desired sound is obtained. For example, the Angle and force of the hammering sound spring must be patiently optimized and coordinated by the governing body to the appropriate rhythm. This is a time-consuming and delicate process, and the watchmaker must have dexterous hands and good music literacy.
Breguet series Tradition 7087 3 ask for the time of the flywheel wristwatch. Abraham-louis breguet’s invention of the sound spring (to replace the previous bell) was completely redesigned and fixed on the ring, rather than around the core. To better amplify the conduction sound, the sound hammer moves vertically along the direction from the core to the circle.
In order to make a rich, clear and pleasing Nixon Watches, watchmakers create different forms of reinforcement. In particular, the cathedral’s wrist watch, the sound spring wraps around the core nearly two times; Westminster bell, with at least four sets of hammers and sound springs, to imitate the chimes of Big Ben. In addition to the machine core, the case and the entire internal structure are cleverly designed and perfectly resonated. In recent years, the company has developed a patent mechanism to fix the sound spring to the sapphire crystal mirror and enhance the amplification effect.
2015 Geneva international advanced salon (SIHH 2015) on the clock, Abby (Audemars Piguet) introduced concept of royal oak Supersonnerie ultra q Nixon Watches, sound spring attached to a new “sounding board” at the bottom of the movement device, the principle of similar stringed instrument, can strengthen the amplification effect.
Grande Sonnerie and Petite Sonnerie
The great self – singing and the small self – singing in the advanced tabulation world occupies a very special position, belongs to the most complex tabulation creation. Both can be heard automatically when the clock runs to “full time” and “full time”, but the small self is not repeated when the clock is automatically reprinted. In general, both large and small self-ming are equipped with buttons or handles to convert “silent” mode, and the two have a list mechanism that can be reported as needed.
FP Journe Sonnerie three asked the self-singing Nixon Watches side.
FP Journe Sonnerie three questions from the side of the meter.
Only a few watchmakers can make such a mechanism. In addition to the complexity of the self-tuning function, managing energy consumption is also critical. No need to manually activate the automatic ringing, which means that the energy must be stored and released when needed. Large and small self-ming watches are usually equipped with a special clockwork box, but FP Journe Sonnerie three asked the self-ming Nixon Watchesto be equipped with only one clockwork box, while driving the walking and Ming reporting mechanism.
Hybris Mechanica a Grande Sonnerie, which is composed of more than 1,400 parts, has a power reserve of up to 12 hours. In addition, this super complex function wrist watch also has the tourbillon wheel and the calendar function.
Musical Watch
Inspired by the mechanical music box, some ringing reports can be played on demand or at regular intervals. The small size of the dial drum (or dial) and the reeds, so that the music box is integrated into the wristwatch to achieve the true technical feat.
Christophe Claret Orchestra. It has 120 stitches on the drum, each of which is carefully embedded by hand, and the reeds can play 20 independent notes. The Orchestra watch can play two pieces of music, which can be played regularly, played manually, and has a silent mode.
A Stranger watch in Athens can play the beautiful melody of Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the night”. The brand redesigned the traditional music box mechanism and replaced it with a rotating disk with 10 blades, which was clearly visible on the side of the dial.
The Athens watch can play the melody on time or on demand, with silent mode.
Breguet Classique La Musicale music alarm clock can play a tune of B minor, which will awaken the wearer from sleep.
Automaton
BVLGARI bulgari, Commedia Dell ‘arte, I asked the wristwatch, which has a cathedral sound spring. The doll is carved and polished by a miniature painting. Activation of the mechanism, the scene of the doll will be followed by the rhythm.
Activate the button or dial handle, the hammers tap the sound spring, and use these energies. Some ask the Nixon Watchesto draw inspiration from the tradition of the 17th century and set the automatic doll on the dial. The erotic watch is the most striking example.
Jaquet Droz’s fascinating time bird watch.


Follow the spirit of the brand’s founder, the great clock and the automatic puppet master Pierre Jacques delo, and Jaquet Droz has launched a fascinating time bird watch. The masterpiece is a pioneering work of inserting the crowning of the birds into the wristwatch structure. When the bird turns and flaps its wings, the piston-driven sound tube emits birdsong.
Jaquet Droz’s fascinating time bird watch carries the movement.
The wristwatch app has been developed from the 18th century and has been modernized and miniaturized. The brand boldly USES innovative materials, sapphire as a voice tube and carbon as a piston, and a few centuries ago, Pierre Jacques delo used animal tissue. While the time bird is not triggered by a list mechanism, the watch is still a remarkable mechanical masterpiece.
