What Kind Of Watch Did You Wear In The Movie ‘i And My Motherland’?

This year is the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China. In order to celebrate the National Day, the movie ‘I and My Country’ will be screened. The film is directed by Chen Kaige, co-directed by Zhang Yibai, Guan Hu, Xue Xiaolu, Xu Yan, Ning Hao, and Wen Muye. Huang Bo, Zhang Yi, Liu Tao, Du Jiang, Ge You, Song Jia, Liu Haoran, Chen Feiyu and other actors perform 7 groups of ordinary people and The events of the motherland are closely related to each other, witnessing the big age with little people. These seven stories are respectively the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949, the success of China’s first atomic bomb on October 16, 1964, the Chinese women’s volleyball team winning the Olympic Games on August 8, 1984, and the first consecutive three consecutive World Championships. The return of Hong Kong on July 1, 1997, the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics on August 8, 2008, the parade to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory of the War of Resistance Against Japan on September 3, 2015, and the successful landing of the Shenzhou 11 spacecraft return capsule in 2016. Yesterday, the ‘Return’ trailer, one of the seven stories directed by ‘Xue Xiaolu’, was exposed and caused a lot of attention on the Internet. Especially in the film, there are a lot of shots about clocks and watches, many watch friends asked in private letters, so today we will share what watch is worn in the movie ‘I and My Country’ The most obvious watch in the play was worn by the Hong Kong police, played by the actor ‘Hui Yinghong’. Not only did it participate in the main line of the story, it also gave a close-up shot on the critical June 30th to July 1st, which reclaimed Hong Kong’s sovereignty. This is a Fifty fathoms from Blancpain, a watch brand, translated in Chinese as ‘Fifty Fatty.’ When it comes to diving watches, watch friends are more likely to think of Rolex’s Submariner or Omega’s Seamaster, but the ancestors of this type of watch are not more well-known, but Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. Shortly after the end of World War II, in 1952, the French government became an assault frogman unit called ‘Nageuers de combat’. Their role is to conduct secret investigations and effective strikes on targets through waterways. At the time, the founders of the army, Robert Maloubier and Claude Jean Riffaud, in addition to recruiting elite commandos, also had a difficult problem before them: purchasing suitable diving equipment, including the ability to wear underwater. Used watch. After all, for team members performing special tasks, a unified time helps a unified action. But unfortunately, Robert and Claude tested the watches on the market at the time and found that they could not meet the needs of the assault frogman unit, so they had to think about customizing with the watch manufacturer. Robert and Claude found the famous French watch brand LIP, but LIP rejected them directly. Because at that time, diving was only a very niche activity, and few people except professionals participated. For Lip, it was not cost-effective to develop a niche product independently, taking great market risks. Regular models. While Robert and Claude were at a loss, through the introduction of diving equipment suppliers, they met Jean-Jacques Fiechter, CEO of the watch brand Blancpain. Compared with LIP, Blancpain Blancpain was much smaller in scale and popularity at the time, but it was also because of its small size and lack of shelf. In addition, Jacques Fiechter himself was an avid diving enthusiast, so Blancpain Blancpain took over the assault frogman unit. Watch development. In 1953, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms was born, slightly before the Rolex Submariner and the Omega Seamaster 300 released in 1957, becoming the earliest diving watches. Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms is one of the very popular dive watches now. However, this watch in the preview, many watch friends still do not recognize. It may be because the Blancpain trademark is obscured by the dial. At the same time, it is an antique watch produced in the 1960s. Even the dial does not have the word Fifty fathoms, but it is marked as ‘Aqualung’ in English. . Why not Fifty fathoms? As mentioned earlier, Fifty fathoms was born of the Frogman Commando of the French government. As a military item, there are not only requirements for product quality, but also standards for their sources. Blancpain is a watchmaking brand from Switzerland. At the time, the French government required military items to be purchased through local French companies. So Blancpain found a partnership with Spirotechnique, a subsidiary of Air Liquide France, which owns the ‘Aqualung’ trademark. So Fifty fathoms fifty concubines sold through Spirotechnique were replaced with the words ‘Aqualung’. In addition, this Blancpain appearing in the play has a special place, the dial at six o’clock position with a ‘No Radiations’ no radiation sign. The earliest noctilucent material was zinc sulfide, which was excited by sunlight or light. Zinc sulfide decays very quickly, leaving no light for a while. If radium and zinc sulfide are mixed, zinc sulfide will be excited by the radiation of radium. Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms originally used radium luminescence. After decades of use of radiation measuring instruments, radiation is still exploding. At first, the US military even covered the inscription ‘radiation items on the back of 50mm, please return to the nearest military base. ‘. Because radium is too radioactive and harmful to the human body, its use is prohibited. Later, Blancpain switched to low-radiation thorium (pronounced ‘chuān’), so the word ‘T <25' can be seen at the lower part of the dial at six o'clock. Here T stands for the radioactive element 氚 Tritium, and '<25' stands for its The radiation sign is below the limit. Of course, as a work of art, the watch in the movie and the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms in reality still have some differences. For the needs of the plot, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms calendar in the close-up shot jumped directly from June 30 to July 1. In fact, this Blancpain produced in the 1960s uses an ordinary automatic winding mechanical movement, which does not have a perpetual calendar function. Therefore, according to the operating rules of the mechanical structure, it should first jump to June 31, and then Adjust manually until July 1. In addition, in the lens, as soon as the second hand is 60 seconds, the calendar can be switched to jump. In actual life, it is difficult for mechanical watches to do this, because there are tolerances in the production of parts, and the later wearing and use environment will be affected. Therefore, basically jumping the calendar within 15 minutes around 0 o'clock is not completely accurate. To 60 seconds. In addition to the Blancpain 50s worn by the Hong Kong police, played by the actor 'Hui Yinghong', there is actually a more important watch. He was “An Wenbin” played by Wang Luoyong. At the time, Mr. An Wenbin was the Director of the Protocol Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was responsible for the preparation and organization of the return ceremony in Hong Kong. The return of Hong Kong is of great significance. It is accurate to the second. Even the guard of honor must calculate how far each step goes without any errors. For this purpose, An Wenbin bought a very precise watch from the United States, and matched the time with the London Greenwich Observatory and the Nanjing Purple Mountain Observatory. However, for a long time, the information on the watch worn by Mr. An Wenbin has not been made public. The preview of 'I and My Motherland' was not given a shot, so I don't know what it is. The film 'My Motherland and Me' will be released on October 1st. You can follow our public account. If there are related watch lenses in the show, we will update and share. —END —

评论 [Review]
This is Rolex’s first GMT-Master watch, manufactured in 1954. Its most prominent feature, in addition to the ‘Mercedes-Benz Hand’ and the second hand with a large triangle at the tip, also uses a special artificial rubber to make the bezel. Rolex originally chose this material for the purpose of being strong and durable, and then not affecting the pilot’s sight due to reflections. Beginning in 1956, Rolex began to partially use metal to make bezels (such as the second-hour gold bezel used in 1675), and later began to use ceramic materials.

Lin Yijie’s Gobi Journey To Zenith Successfully And Successfully

Fearless Brave Gobi Battle
Congratulations to Zenith’s best friend Lin Yijie on the 2400km Gobi journey

The journey started on June 24 at Lake Baier, Mongolia. After 38 days, over 2,400 kilometers, Zenith’s best friend Lin Yijie arrived at the Jiayuguan terminal on July 31, and finally completed the third largest water shortage area in the world-the Great Gobi. Leaping on foot made another grand adventure. Following the human feat crossing the Sahara Desert and the Miles Road journey, Big Gobi’s successful leap forward officially proclaimed Lin Yijie as the first adventurer in history to run across the world’s three water-scarce areas in the shortest time. In addition to challenging the limit and creating the dream of human will, this feat is also intended to awaken the world’s attention to the serious shortage of Gobi water.

义 Zenith’s best friend Lin Yijie arrived at the Jiayuguan terminal on July 31, and finally completed the trek across the Dagobi, the third largest water-scarce area in the world, and completed another magnificent adventure.

义 Zenith’s best friend Lin Yijie arrived at the Jiayuguan terminal on July 31, and finally completed the trek across the third largest water-scarce area in the world, the Big Gobi, and completed another magnificent adventure.

The crossing of the Gobi started from the Bayer Lake in Mongolia, crossed the Great Gobi Desert, and reached Jiayuguan, China. During the period, Lin Yijie insisted on a single-day supply, carrying the daily needed water and dehydrated food and first-aid supplies, and running continuously through the Great Gobi Desert. On the way, Lin Yijie and the core team members faced various challenges such as desert drought, extreme weather, and accidental robberies. In order to ensure that the plan was completed on time, even if his knee was accidentally injured, Lin Yijie still endured the injury and maintained a running distance of 80 kilometers per day.

Throughout the journey, Lin Yijie thoroughly understood the current lack of water resources of the border nomads, shared the adventures of runners in confronting severe areas, and recorded the adventures with text and images. I hope that everyone can see the great distances from the borders of the world. The serious problems of the lack of Gobi nomads, water resources and children’s medical care catalyze the desire of many people to contribute to the protection of the earth’s environment, reminding the world of the importance of water.

Quoting Lin Yijie, ‘For 7 consecutive years, 7,500 kilometers in the Sahara, 10,000 kilometers in the Silk Road, and 2,400 kilometers in the Gobi Desert, I took running as a cause of enthusiasm, and embraced it with enthusiasm. Three world records were unexpected. It’s a different story. When every day on both feet, you have to face and respond to the relentless changes in the vast desert; look at the world with both feet, and I hope you will see the importance of cherishing the earth’s resources from my two-foot challenge. . ‘

义 Lin Yijie understands the lack of water resources of border nomads.

This is a difficult undertaking to gather courage and perseverance. It is not only a self-examination and subversion by Lin Yijie but also an appeal to the entire world. Zenith, the Swiss watchmaker that has participated in the greatest adventures of mankind many times, has always been hailed as the most reliable companion around the trailblazer. Following hand in hand skydiving hero Felix. After Bougatner completed the worldly space jump, Zenith once again accompanied Lin Yijie to complete this magnificent Gobi journey, praising his spirit of fearlessness and courage to explore. We sincerely thank the warrior for all his efforts for this world, and we sincerely pay tribute to his unparalleled achievements.
