ROLEX: el Oyster Perpetual Day-Date es el reloj más prestigioso y exclusivo de la colección Oyster Perpetual.

ROLEX: el Oyster Perpetual Day-Date es el reloj más prestigioso y exclusivo de la colección Oyster Perpetual.

En su lanzamiento en 1956, el Day-Date supuso una gran innovación: fue el primer reloj de pulsera con calendario que indicaba, además de la fecha, el día de la semana completo en una ventana en la esfera, una hazaña técnica en el tiempo. El Day-Date solo se ha fabricado con metales preciosos: oro amarillo, blanco o Everose de 18 quilates, o platino 950.

EL ‘RELOJ DE LOS PRESIDENTES’
Usado por muchas de las figuras políticas, directores y visionarios del mundo, el Day-Date es reconocible al instante, en particular gracias a su emblemático brazalete President, cuyo nombre evocador, junto con las figuras eminentes que lo han usado, aseguró que el Day-Date se conociera como el “reloj de los presidentes”.

DÍA Y FECHA INSTANTÁNEOS
El calendario de Day-Date muestra el día de la semana completo en una ventana en forma de arco a las 12 en punto, además de la fecha en una ventana separada a las 3 en punto. Esta pantalla se basa en mecanismos de disco; el día y la fecha cambian de forma simultánea e instantánea. La indicación del día de la semana está disponible en 26 idiomas. El Day-Date también está equipado con un mecanismo que permite un ajuste rápido del día y la fecha utilizando la corona de cuerda.

EL DAY-DATE, CRONÓMETRO SUPERLATIVO CERTIFICADO
Como todos los relojes Rolex, el Day-Date está cubierto por la certificación Superlative Chronometer redefinida por Rolex en 2015. Esta designación exclusiva atestigua que cada reloj que sale de los talleres de la marca ha superado con éxito una serie de pruebas realizadas por Rolex en sus propios laboratorios y según sus propios criterios. Estas pruebas de certificación se aplican al reloj completamente ensamblado, después de la caja del movimiento, lo que garantiza un rendimiento superlativo en la muñeca en términos de precisión, reserva de marcha, impermeabilidad y cuerda automática. El estado de cronómetro superlativo está simbolizado por el sello verde que viene con cada reloj Rolex y se combina con una garantía internacional de cinco años.

La precisión de cada movimiento, oficialmente certificado como cronómetro por el Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), es probada por segunda vez por Rolex después de ser encajonado, para garantizar que cumple con criterios que son mucho más estrictos que los de la certificación oficial. La precisión de un cronómetro superlativo de Rolex es del orden de −2/+2 segundos por día: la desviación de velocidad tolerada por la marca para un reloj terminado es significativamente menor que la aceptada por COSC solo para la certificación oficial del movimiento.

La prueba de certificación Superlative Chronometer se lleva a cabo después de la caja utilizando equipos de última generación especialmente desarrollados por Rolex y de acuerdo con una metodología exclusiva que simula las condiciones en las que se usa un reloj y representa más fielmente la experiencia de la vida real. La serie de pruebas totalmente automatizadas también comprueba la impermeabilidad, la capacidad de carga automática y la reserva de marcha del 100 % de los relojes Rolex. Estas pruebas complementan sistemáticamente las pruebas de calificación durante el desarrollo y la producción, para garantizar la confiabilidad, robustez y resistencia de los relojes al magnetismo y los golpes.

EL ESTUCHE OYSTER, SÍMBOLO DE IMPERMEABILIDAD
La caja Oyster del Day-Date, de 36 o 40 mm de diámetro y hermética garantizada hasta una profundidad de 100 metros (330 pies), es un modelo de robustez y elegancia. La caja central está hecha de un bloque sólido de oro de 18 quilates o platino 950. El fondo de la caja, bordeado con un fino estriado, está herméticamente atornillado con una herramienta especial que solo permite el acceso al movimiento a los relojeros certificados por Rolex. La corona de cuerda Twinlock, equipada con un sistema de doble impermeabilidad, se atornilla de forma segura a la caja. El bisel puede ser estriado o engastado con diamantes. La indicación de la fecha a las 3 en punto se amplía con una lente Cyclops en el cristal, que está hecho de zafiro prácticamente resistente a los arañazos y se beneficia de un revestimiento antirreflectante. La caja impermeable Oyster ofrece una protección óptima para el movimiento del Day-Date.

CALIBRE PERPETUO 3255
El Day-Date 36 y el Day-Date 40 están equipados con el calibre 3255, un movimiento mecánico automático desarrollado y fabricado íntegramente por Rolex. Una demostración consumada de la tecnología, este movimiento lleva una serie de patentes. Ofrece un rendimiento excepcional en términos de precisión, reserva de marcha, resistencia a los golpes, comodidad y fiabilidad.

El oscilador del calibre 3255 tiene un gran volante de inercia variable regulado con gran precisión mediante tuercas Microstella de oro. Se mantiene firmemente en su lugar mediante un puente transversal de altura ajustable que permite un posicionamiento muy estable para aumentar la resistencia a los golpes. El oscilador también está montado sobre amortiguadores Paraflex de alto rendimiento, diseñados por Rolex y patentados.

El calibre 3255 presenta una versión optimizada de la espiral azul Parachrom, fabricada por Rolex en una aleación paramagnética. Insensible a los campos magnéticos, la espiral Parachrom ofrece una gran estabilidad frente a las variaciones de temperatura. Está equipado con un overcoil Rolex, lo que garantiza su regularidad en cualquier posición.

Este calibre incorpora el escape patentado Chronergy, fabricado en níquel-fósforo, que combina una alta eficiencia energética con una gran fiabilidad y además es insensible a los campos magnéticos.

El calibre 3255 está equipado con un módulo de cuerda automática con un rotor Perpetual, que asegura la cuerda continua del resorte principal aprovechando los movimientos de la muñeca para proporcionar una fuente constante de energía. Gracias a su arquitectura de barrilete ya la eficiencia superior del escape, la reserva de marcha de este movimiento se extiende hasta aproximadamente 70 horas.

El movimiento del Day-Date solo lo verán los relojeros certificados de Rolex, pero está bellamente acabado y decorado de acuerdo con los estrictos estándares de calidad de la marca.

EL BRAZALETE PRESIDENT
Creado especialmente para el Day-Date y presentado en 1956 en el lanzamiento del modelo, el elegante e imponente brazalete President es inherente al prestigio del reloj. Inmediatamente reconocible, este brazalete de oro macizo de 18 quilates o platino 950 con tres eslabones semicirculares proporciona total fiabilidad y comodidad.

El brazalete President está equipado con un Crownclasp oculto, abierto con una corona Rolex con bisagras: el toque estético y funcional final de este brazalete. Incluye inserciones de cerámica en el interior de los eslabones para mejorar su flexibilidad y longevidad. Un sistema de fijación oculto en el brazalete garantiza una continuidad visual perfecta entre el brazalete y la caja.

The Palme d’or Chopard, the Artisan of international film-making’s most prestigious award

The Palme d’or

Chopard, the Artisan of international film-making’s

most prestigious award

Every year, the Palme d’or, the Holy Grail of the Seventh Art, is awarded to the best film in the competition at the Cannes International Film Festival. The latest feature film to win it, Parasite by Bong Joon Ho, quite simply rewrote the history of cinema, confirming the absolute prestige and power of this trophy. As a longstanding partner to the Festival, Chopard is proud to accompany this annual launch into orbit of an exceptional talent. Since 1998, the Maison has been the Artisan of the Palme d’or and indeed of all the trophies awarded at the Festival’s closing ceremony.

On May 25th 2019, Bong Joon Ho was awarded the Palme d’or by Catherine Deneuve – having been unanimously chosen by a jury chaired by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu – for his film Parasite. Stroking the blue morocco leather case containing the trophy, the overawed and deeply moved South Korean filmmaker admitted: “I was just a timid film buff who decided to become a film director at the age of 12. I never even imagined that I would touch this trophy. And winning the award is more priceless than ever.”

From that magical moment suspended in time, Parasite, a huge hit that reconciled audiences and critics in the same collective euphoria, swept up everything in its path, even conquering Hollywood.

The Palme d’or, a fantastic platform

The phenomenal triumph of Parasite reminded us that being awarded the supreme prize at the Cannes Film Festival offers the most spectacular launch pad for the career of both films and filmmakers in the firmament of the Seventh Art, confirming that the Palme d’or remains the most precious ‘open sesame’ for winning the hearts of the whole world.

After scooping every major award in the world one by one, the film honoured by the Palme d’or ended its wild ride in style by taking home the four most prestigious statuettes at the 2020 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best International Film) and by accomplishing two feats at the same time: not only was Parasite the first non-English speaking film to win the Best Picture Oscar, but also the first film to win the Best Picture and Best International Film Oscars together. This is unprecedented in the 92-year history of the American Film Academy! “Since its huge win at Cannes, Parasite has continued to rack up the most prestigious awards and to break records, making it undoubtedly one of the most repeatedly distinguished films in the history of cinema. A historic prize!” enthused Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Cannes Film Festival.

Chopard, partner of the greatest cinematographic adventures

The story began in 1997. During a meeting with Pierre Viot (then President of the Cannes Festival), Caroline Scheufele (Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard) suggested redesigning the Palme d’or. Symbolically, this keen film lover imagined a heart at the base of the Palme d’or branch presented the following year, giving a new lease on life to the trophy.

Through this thrilling palm, which has symbolised hearts beating in unison for more than 20’ years, a veritable hand-sculpted jewel composed of 19 yellow gold leaves resting on a unique cushion of rock crystal, the Maison Chopard, jeweller of the red carpet and official partner of the Cannes Film Festival since 1998, continues to share its passion for the cinema and its emotions with the entire world.

A shining example of the Maison’s commitment to sustainable luxury, the Palme d’or has been crafted in ethical Fairmined-certified yellow gold since 2014, making it the only ethical trophy in the world of cinema crafted with respect for people and for the environment.

In addition to the Palme d’or for the best film, the Maison’s Haute Joaillerie workshops craft all the trophies – in rock crystal engraved with a palm – awarded to the other winners at the closing ceremony, a traditionally unforgettable evening that opens up the realm of every possibility, as we now know more than ever.

In addition to the Palme d’or, Caroline Scheufele is also behind the Trophée Chopard, awarded each year since 2001 during the Cannes fortnight to an up-and-coming actress and actor, thus helping to shape the future of cinema.

The building, developed by the Groupe Segond Immobilier, designed by architects Cabinet A. Giraldi, spans 19 floors, including a four-floor penthouse, a rooftop pool, and a spa. The modern design interiors were designed by Humbert and Poyet.

Each apartment was designed to honor the views of the city’s greatest landmarks, the sea, and the surrounding mountains. Humbert and Poyet’s signature use of noble materials, detail, and references to the Art Deco period define the space. The result is defiantly bold and luxurious for this luxury building. Each door is a statement – ornate, with brass paneling and bronze handles. The flooring is patterned in black and white marbles. Decadent staircases decorate the many duplexes, featuring ironwork guardrails. Exceptional shapes, lines, and materials decorate the spaces from floor to ceiling.
