From the bottom of the table, you can see that the bridge and screws of the movement have been treated with PVD.
  In recent years, many brands hope to step into the threshold of self-made movements. Among them, Le Méridien succeeded in catching up with the last train with the ML 106 movement last year. In addition to launching an improved version of the ML 106-2 movement this year, the brand also introduced a second self-made movement of the ML 132 model, and added the slogan Manufacture Horlogere Suisse to the brand Logo, which means that the Swiss movement manufacturer became this year. One of the focal points at Basel.
   In recent years, Le Méridien has focused on how to improve the level of internal functions. After several years, this year is the harvest time! In fact, the Le Méridien watch everyone has always known is only focused on its flagship series Masterpiece, so when the brand officially announced that it would launch its own movement, everyone’s focus fell on this hot-selling series. The ML 106 officially debuted last year. The built-in functions include the branded patented Lever System, which makes the chronograph stop and return to zero more smoothly. In addition, it also cooperates with the 60-minute chronograph dial and small seconds dial. The most important thing is Relatively difficult to make a chronograph movement, so the outside world made a high evaluation of this brand’s ‘first time’.
  Because it is an important moment for the brand, the Le Chronographe watch used with this movement last year only had a more expensive red gold version; a year later, a more accessible steel version was introduced according to the practice of watch altars, the purpose is to tell Everyone, the brand has successfully controlled the production of homemade movements.
Second own movement
  This year’s new steel version of Le Chronographe is equipped with an improved ML 106-2 movement, which is different from last year’s ML 106. The new work has spent a lot of time on polishing and finishing the movement. The surface of the bridge and the screws are treated with PVD to make the color of tantalum metal, and each screw is also treated with PVD, so that the entire watch is truly gorgeous from the inside out! In addition, this year the brand also launched the second new In-house movement ML 134. In addition to the unique structure of the 3/4 clip version and the pallet fork, due to the inspiration of the ML 106-2 movement, Therefore, the movement gear is also gold-plated, which successfully completes the brand’s movement collection.
Masterpiece Le Chronographe

In order to avoid damage caused by external impact. The sixty-minute counter at three o’clock and the small second hand at nine o’clock. As long as you pay attention, you will find that the design of the small disk is slightly different from the red and gold version launched last year, all because of the new Rotating Disk pointer.

Masterpiece Jours Retrogrades

The main reason is that the speed of the hour and minute hands is too slow to appreciate the elegant movement in the flyback process. However, this week dial watch has broken the tradition. In addition to the design of the large calendar, its dial series is especially composed of two similar tooth bars to form a special mechanism, which effectively causes the loss of the balance wheel and the timing error.

Individuality Is Not Classical Analysis Of The Application Of Roman Numerals In Watchmaking

In the previous article, we showed how the Arabic numerals on the dial of a watch can help shape the brand image. In addition to Arabic numerals, watchmaking brands have other options: Roman numerals or no numerals (with time stamps or nothing). In this article we will explore Roman numerals.

   When it comes to Roman numerals, many people’s first impression is ‘classical’, but this is not always the case. The Roman numerals are very vivid, and they are not simple inlays. Unlike Arabic numerals, Roman numerals are easy to read even if they are inverted, without the need to deliberately adjust the dial’s orientation. It should be noted that the number ‘four’ is usually marked with ‘IIII’ instead of ‘IV’ in order to avoid confusion with ‘VI’ (six). Next, let’s take Breguet, Cartier, and Roger Dubuis as examples to explore the personalized application of Roman numerals.
Breguet-precision pearl

 
   Delicate, slender, and dispersed, the Roman numerals applied by Breguet are derived from historical measuring instruments. The unit characters-I, V, X-are connected by serifs to make each number a compact whole. The slim black outline highlights the exquisite engraved pattern on the dial: Breguet figures are a symbol of exquisiteness and precision, with perfect proportions, a pearl of classicism. The characters’ slightly irregular serifs and rounded tips are reminiscent of handicraft. There is enough space between the numbers to reflect the precise properties of the measuring instrument, because it only takes a short time for the pointer to jump past the number.
Cartier-publicity

 
   For this brand with the classic icon of Cheetah, the concept of ‘Shape Your Time’ is more than a slogan. Cartier’s iconic Tank watch is decorated with heavily tilted Roman numerals, like the sun rays radiating from the pointer axis, highlighting the distinctive rectangular case shape. The prominent Roman numerals are easy to identify, and the dark black thick strokes are in sharp contrast with the thin strokes. The geometric structure of this art deco makes Roman numerals clear and readable. The Rotonde de Cartier watch is also an excellent example of the Roman numerals: here, Roman numerals become architectural elements, just like the metal sunroof profiles surrounding the movement.
Roger Dubuis-Jazz Rhythm

 
   Roger Dubuis created a new situation in abstracting Roman numerals. Without serifs, the characters I, V, and X look more like simple hour markers. The Roman numerals are narrow and narrow from the inside to the outside, deliberately deformed, just like the reflection in the ice palace, which is more suitable for round dials. This style of inspiration may be derived from the female models on the runway, so that wearers no longer have to worry about reading time, but focus on image rhythm and time rhythm. In addition, the Excalibur watch in black and white colors is also reminiscent of piano keys.
   In the watchmaking industry, fonts are essential. Proper font selection can solve the problem of readability, strengthen the brand’s value proposition, and give it a unique look and feel.
