Blancpain Releases X Fathoms Diving Watch

Blancpain released its latest diving watch X Fathoms in the world’s largest aquarium, Aquarium & Underwater Zoo located in Dubai Mall. This watch uses the classic look of the Blancpain diving watch from 1953, but it is the most advanced diving watch to date.
 Fathoms is a unit of depth. One Fathoms stands for 6 feet, about 1.829 meters. And this X Fachoms watch is the latest model of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms diving watch series, the name of X represents many innovations of this watch. The dial shows a 5 minute countdown at 10-11 o’clock to measure decompression time. The dial’s outer ring is a high-precision 0-15 meter depth indicator with a full-scale error within +/- 30cm. The inner circle of the dial is a depth indicator of 0-90 meters, of which the yellow arrow pointer is used to display the current depth, and the red pointer is used to indicate the deepest depth record.

 The button at 10 o’clock in the case is used to reset the 5-minute countdown timer, while the button at 8 o’clock with a protective bridge is used to reset the dive depth record. Crown at 3 o’clock. Inside the surrounding honeycomb grid is the watch valve regulator mechanism. Three honeycomb water inlets are used at the bottom of the case to direct water into the watch’s depth gauge to measure depth. The unidirectional rotating bezel still appears on the X Fathoms as a signature part of the diving watch. The watch strap has 14 movable joints, which make it fit on the wrist. At the same time, it can ensure the contact of the watch depth meter with water to ensure the accuracy of depth measurement.

 In addition, the watch uses a liquid metal depth gauge. As is known to all, the depth gauge generally measures the pressure applied to the drum by measuring the deformation of the pressure drum, and then converts the current depth by the pressure. The X Fachoms watch’s pressure-drum tympanum is made of liquid metal. This material is a good material for making depth notes because it can maintain good elasticity under long-term pressure. Compared with the traditional steel pressure measuring drum, the thickness of the eardrum is reduced by half, and at the same time, the maximum accuracy can be obtained. In addition, the cracking of solid materials due to long-term deformation is effectively avoided. However, due to the non-linear relationship between the pressure on the liquid metal and its deformation, it is difficult to accurately indicate the magnitude of the pressure through the degree of deformation. Blancpain has solved this non-linear characteristic through a set of asymmetric gear mechanism. (See below)

 The watch is equipped with a 9918B automatic movement based on the Blancpain 1315 movement. Consists of 385 parts and 44 gem bearings. The thickness is 13mm and the diameter is 36mm. It uses anti-magnetic silicon hairspring and has 3 barrels at the same time, providing 5 days power reserve. The case is made of satin-brushed titanium alloy with a diameter of 55.65mm and a thickness of 24mm. Water-resistant to 300m.

The City Of Birth Of Rolex Daytona The Speed ​​city Of The World – Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach in Florida has a history in the name of the world’s speed capital. Since 1903, many racing events have been held here, and many world land speed records are also set here. The most noticeable one is the record speed of nearly 450 kilometers per hour in 1935. To date, Daytona Beach has been hailed as the ‘World Racing Center’ in the United States. The International Speedway Corporation, headquartered in Daytona, manages 13 tracks in the United States, including the legendary Daytona International Speedway. The headquarters of the National Sports Car Racing Association (NASCAR) and the American Automobile Racing Association (GRAND-AM) are also located in Daytona.

King of Speed
   1903–1935 From 1903 to 1935, Daytona’s hard-sandy beaches became an ideal place to break the speed record on land, and has since become known internationally. More than 80 official records were born here, of which 14 are even more The world’s fastest speed record. At that time, long distance markings on the sand used to calculate racing speed * recorded several brilliant racing achievements, including WK ​​Vanderbilt’s Dayton at 92 mph (148 km) in 1904 Take the first world record; Barney Oldfield drove the ‘LightningBenz’ to a record-breaking speed of 131 miles (210 kilometers) per hour in 1910, and became the throne of the King of Speed. Later, Orfield declared that his record was ‘near the absolute limit of human driving speed.’

   One of the outstanding racers at the time, Ralph DePalma, drove a powerful 12-cylinder Packard sports car, setting a new world record at 149 mph (240 km) in 1919, a record of more than 10 Years long. In the days that followed, it was the speed of conquering two difficult competitors in history: Malcolm Campbell and Henry Segrave. Since the 1920s, these two wealthy Britons have been able to compete on the Brooklands circuit in England, the world’s first dedicated racing circuit built in 1907. The latter two set a speed record and won King George V. George V) title. When the concrete elliptical track in Brookland was not enough to handle their more powerful high-speed sports cars, they turned to the beaches, starting with Pendine Sands and Southport in England, and finally inevitable. Came to Daytona. Their secretly built sports car exceeded 200 miles per hour (321 kilometers), and at the time only airplanes could reach such high speeds.

   Their sports cars are equipped with aircraft engines and are built for sprinting straight on the beach. Seagrave drove the Sunbeam Mystery S at a speed of 203 miles per hour (328 km) in the first Daytona duel in 1927. This victory was the first record verified by international standards. The distance is measured at the same distance but in the opposite direction, and the average value is calculated through calculation to offset the wind effect. Campbell drove the Bluebird (named after all his tanks) the following year, breaking records at 207 miles per hour (333 kilometers). In 1929, Henry Seagrave led the new sports car Golden Arrow, again leading the record at 231 miles (372 kilometers) per hour, a world record that earned him the jazz title and appeared in the New York Times ( New York Times). However, he unfortunately died unexpectedly the following year when he tried to break the speed record on the water.
   Since then, Campbell has been driving more powerful ‘Bluebird’ chariots year after year, breaking the world record he set in Daytona and becoming the true king of speed. Each of his pioneering efforts has attracted thousands of audiences and media around the world to Daytona Beach. In March 1935, he set a goal of 300 miles (482 kilometers) per hour and reached 330 miles (531 kilometers) an hour on his first sprint, setting a record for Daytona’s highest speed ever. However, when he was driving in the opposite direction, his average speed was reduced to 276 miles (445 kilometers) per hour, which was his last record at Daytona. This failure prompted Campbell to test the new site, Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. In September of the same year, he successfully completed the challenge, setting a final official record at 301 miles per hour (485 kilometers). Since 1930, Campbell has achieved great feats with Rolex Oyster watches. He witnessed the extraordinary shock resistance of the Rolex Oyster in his advertisement at the time. It can be seen that Rolex’s first spokesperson in the motorsport industry has long been inextricably bound with Dayton.
Unique sand track for the whole ball
   Although the onshore track record was moved to Utah, Daytona has a close relationship with motorsport. Since 1936, Daytona has hosted many unique world races, helping to establish its extraordinary position in the racing world. Soon after, the golden age of elliptical track racing arrived, with half of the track on the beach and the other half of the narrow coastal road. From 1937, this unique track has become the 200-mile American Motorcycle Championship, and this event has become a classic car under the name ‘Daytona 200’. The competitions on the beach are very exciting, attracting hundreds of spectators. Soon, some wooden stands were set up along the turn in the sand. This turn prevented some cars from being manually bombed or straight into the sea.

   Subsequently, the National Association for Stock Car Racing (NASCAR) was established in Daytona in 1948. NASCAR races are now held in four different locations throughout the United States and have become a popular racing category among American audiences. In the same year, Daytona’s Speed ​​Weeks car race, which was held in the early 20th century, was reconvened, and the two-week event is usually held in February. Under the sun in Florida, Daytona Beach is once again the center of American motorsport. The speed measuring distance on the beach allows the speed racing to be carried out again. Major American car brands and top European sports cars have joined the battlefield to promote the brand’s latest models.
   After a few kilometers of sprinting, the car’s impulse is strengthened, so that it can reach the speed range at the highest speed. These races are open to the public: each driver can drive his own car to set an officially certified speed record. The famous Daytona Beach-Road Course is located between the road and the low tide beach. The exciting motorcycle and car races are the focus of the ‘Speed ​​Week’ car race. It is said that many top drivers have smuggled distilled spirits of the Appalachian Mountains in the southeastern United States (especially Georgia and South and North Carolina), and have been trained to escape the pursuit of federal agents from time to time. So has a wealth of racing experience.
   In the mid-1950s, urban development and sand degradation gradually threatened races on the beach. With that in mind, Sir William France Sr., Chairman and Founder of NASCAR, has launched an extremely aggressive plan to build a permanent hard-faced track for top speed events: the Daytona International Circuit. The circuit opened in 1959, inheriting Daytona’s unique heritage and promoting its international reputation.
Racing car hall

 
   When the Daytona International Circuit opened in 1959, it was not only the fastest track in the United States, but also one of the world’s ‘super tracks.’ This 2.5-mile (4 km) three-ellipse circuit still impresses every spectator. The track is uniquely designed for speed, with a 31-degree inclination and a maximum point of 10 meters. The high inclination allows the car to corner at high speed without sliding off the runway under the influence of centrifugal force. At the same time, the audience can see the event at a glance no matter where they are in the stands. However, construction work is an extremely difficult engineering challenge, among which the pavement is even more important. Project engineer Charles Moneypenny developed a unique technique for applying asphalt on slope bends. The pavers are connected to the bulldozers just above the bends to facilitate work on slopes, and this patented technology has since been used to build other tracks.

   Daytona International’s distinctive design does n’t stop there: From the very beginning, Sir William Frances, the founder of the track, hoped that this new track would not only be an important venue for NASCAR events, but would be able to Become an international model. To attract the world’s top racers to Daytona, it was necessary to host the then-recognized elite motorsport event: a sports car event. Sir Francis conceived an innovative concept, constructing a road racing track in the large field’s infield, used for sports car and motorcycle racing, combining the classic track with a unique oval track with a roll angle For one. It is this innovative approach that has led to the development of the World Endurance Race, including the Rolex Daytona 24 Hours, which is as famous as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 24 At Daytona®) to earn an international reputation for this American circuit. The first event was held in the name of ‘Daytona Continental’ in 1962. Only one year later, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch was launched immediately, and the event was born at the same time as the watch. The fate of the person has never been separated.
Race named after Rolex Watch named after Daytona

 
   Sir William Frances not only loved the Daytona International Circuit, but also admired Malcolm Campbell and wore Rolex watches like him. Sir Francis appeared in the brand’s early 1960s ad, saying that Rolex was the appointed timepiece for the Daytona International Circuit. Since the first ‘Daytona Continental Race’, in addition to the trophy, the champion driver can also win a Rolex watch. When the cosmograph watch for racers came out, it naturally became a winner. Soon after, to emphasize the brand’s relationship with this American circuit, Rolex specifically named this watch Cosmograph Daytona.
   In 1992, Rolex sponsored the 24 Hours of Daytona, officially establishing a long relationship between the two, and the event has since been renamed the ‘Rolex Daytona 24 Hours.’ The oldest and most prestigious race in the United States kicked off the international racing season and was referred to simply as ‘The Rolex’. The audience always abandons the stands and sits in the open field to feel the atmosphere. In 2012, this legendary event celebrates its 50th anniversary. This year’s Anniversary Event has a record number of attendees and ended with wonderful results. After 24 hours of fierce competition, and finally accurate measurement of the Rolex clock near the finish line, the winning team won the championship by only 5 seconds. In the end, the winner completed more than 2,673 miles (4,300 kilometers), which is equivalent to the distance from New York across the United States to Los Angeles.

   The Rolex Daytona 24 Hours is exciting and fascinating, but at the same time extremely difficult. It challenges the limits of human and machinery for a full 24 hours. It is believed that it is the only sports car event in the world except the “Le Mans 24 Hours. To this day, many drivers from Formula One, NASCAR, IndyCar and Endurance are enthusiastically participating in this race. They all have the same dream: they hope to wear the Daytona wrists that they won in the race. Watch and respected by the world.
