I have seen some antique clocks, early 19 century early 20th century antique pocket watch, late last century, the late modern watch, there is impressive, often polished good watch, appreciate it very well, first of all psychologically they have started to accept it, and polish the bad watch, unless a good friend a good brand, the price will be good. Of course, look at the watch that period, the most attractive is the main material, the mechanical structure and movement of the road version, incidentally is polished look, and many times these watches is not much polish, the degree is not high. Modern watches, meticulous attention to detail, we talk about some of the main aspects of the movement of the grinding, because the appearance of polished pieces often are mechanical grinding, grinding hand much, and now low-end watches do look very pretty, so the real test of Haute Horlogerie grinding level, through the movement enjoy better grasp.
Many senior table friends, for grinding is actually very understanding, we watch home users in some of these are professional watch repair division, the watch company’s technical staff, so I trespass, it attempts to appeal. Generally speaking, we regard the grinding movement is divided into two parts, one is a functional polished, decorative polished part. Functional polished refers serve timepiece features polished, mainly seen in the gear shaft, sharp teeth, etc., the purpose is to enhance the performance of the watch, stability and durability. Decorative polished refers to the grinding in order to enhance the quality and appearance of the movement carried out, to help watch for little performance, it has developed into a modern art of watchmaking, and set up a special training course and even schools.
If the old school of thought to explain, then, it is like goods decorative grinding, sanding functionality is king, because the most important function of the mechanical watch, still travel, and good product that reputed rivers and lakes, because watch high quality. What is quality? Accurate, durable, long-term, on the basis of these, the initial structure is well-designed and well-site processing unit functions, including grinding. Functional polished three movement works to do more popular, a Rolex, one nations, one FP movement factory, of course, not to say that other brand features polished as good as these, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe features polished it is also in place, but we know more is few.
