常见问题

网站是否涵盖所有宝珀腕表?

是,除了春宫三问表等订制表款外,您可在本网站上看到宝珀所有系列的腕表。

在哪里可找到专供记者的信息?

在宝珀的网站上,有一个专为记者而设置的特别空间。请在此注册,我们将会为您提供账号与密码,即可自由访问宝珀的“新闻空间”。

宝珀腕表是否为了代代相传而设计?

每枚宝珀腕表皆是世代相传的弥足珍贵之物。如果您定期保养腕表,将可确保时计的精准度与美丽外观。

什么是核心作品?

核心作品指的是每位制表工匠在成为制表大师之前,必须能够打造的制表工艺复杂功能(如陀飞轮)。

如何才能妥善维护腕表的所有功能?

您的宝珀腕表是以高科技打造的高精准度时计。当您操作腕表时,必须遵守使用说明的指示。腕表如同轿车,若长时间搁置不用,可能会影响腕表的运行。因此,您必须定期保养腕表。在从事高尔夫球或排球等运动时,理应避免撞击到手腕。

每隔多久应该保养腕表一次?

具有防水功能的腕表每年应检测一次,以确保腕表未“意外进水”。建议每4到5年进行一次完整的保养。若您定期检测腕表的防水功能,那您可延长完整保养的时间间隔。

为什么必须定期保养腕表?

机械腕表的保养间隔较短,因为需要对内部零件进行上油润滑。腕表上油点越多,内部零件就越有可能因缺少润滑油而干燥。这可能会造成内部零件的磨擦,因而影响腕表的防水性能。

宝珀的腕表保养程序为何?

保养程序如下:拆卸表壳、拆卸表盘和指针、完全拆卸机芯、清洗表盘和表链(若是金属表链)、完全清洗机芯、抛光表壳和金属表链、更换机芯磨损零件、上链、上油、安装表盘和指针、装壳(1735腕表除外,因机芯在表壳内)、检测防水功能(若含防水功能)、检测走时精准度、最终检查。若有必要,可能会更换表冠、表镜、按钮等零件。

 

若要对腕表进行保养和维修,我应把宝珀腕表交付给谁?

您可将待保养或维修的腕表交给宝珀特许零售商。宝珀特许零售商会将您的腕表寄给距离最近的宝珀技术中心,此步骤能让您免于处理海关、保险等问题。请参阅“特许零售商”网页以取得特许零售商名单。

制表师是否亲自打造专属工具?

在面对一个似乎无法解决的问题时,优秀的制表师会针对问题打造工具,以取得解决方法。之后,他会将工具妥善保存于职业生涯里形影不离的工具箱中。

制表师在哪里接受培训?培训多久?

我们可将制表培训课程区分为两类:第一类课程需时3年,在职业学校或企业里进行,专门培训微电子学制表师,也就是以前的毛坯制造师。第二类课程则需多一年的时间,学生毕业后可拿到制表师─组装师的文凭。在多出的一年间,学生学习与复杂机械时计和时钟相关的知识,并研究与成立专卖店和工坊有关的问题与策略。至于大型制表复杂功能,制表师在累积数年的经验之后可以得到制表大师的头衔。

放大镜是否会损坏视力?

不会。日常使用的放大镜可避免用眼过度。只有在进行一些工序时,才会使用最高效的放大镜。

制表师需要哪些人体工学措施?

原则上,当制表师在工作台上工作时,必须把双手放在与肩膀同高的位置,这可使其保持背部平直。

为什么大多数的宝珀腕表需要一些时间才能变更日期?

我们可将日期变更系统区分为三类:快速、半快速、慢速。每个系统从腕表动力来源(发条盒)取得动力的方法各异。与快速系统不同,半快速与慢速系统将取得动力的时间平均分布在数小时内。

如何才能保持腕表的防水性能?

每年必须让宝珀为腕表做一次检测。

WHAT IS A BALANCE-SPRING?

A balance-spring is a small spring fixed to the balance that regulates the timing of the watch.

什么是游丝?

游丝为固定在摆轮上的发条,是组成腕表调节装置的必要零件。

什么是陀飞轮?

陀飞轮可消除腕表因处于垂直位置而造成的走时误差,从而确保腕表的最高精准度。

腕表上的夜光显示使用何种材质?

无放射性的Super-LumiNova夜光涂层。

自动上链机芯与手动上链机芯有何区别?

自动上链机芯可借手腕的运动自动上链,而不具自动上链功能的机芯则需以手动方式上链。

如果我在睡前取下腕表,翌日佩戴前是否需为腕表上链?

您无需为腕表上链。然而,您需每日定时为手动上链腕表进行上链。

在哪里可以购买宝珀腕表?

宝珀腕表绝不在网络上出售。若欲购买宝珀腕表,请与我们的特许零售商联系。他们将很乐意为您提供所有与表款、不同制作方法、价格相关的信息。

WHY IS MY WATCH RUNNING FAST, OR RUNNING SLOW?

A mechanical watch can run slow or can advance, anything from a few seconds per day to 2 minutes per week. If the amount exceeds 2 minutes over a week, it is advisable for the watch to be checked by a Blancpain authorized watchmaker, as this could be the result of an impact. A sudden advance of a few minutes, over the period of a day, might also indicate an impact or exposure to a strong magnetic field.

WHY HAS MY WATCH STOPPED?

Whilst both a manual and automatic winding watch might stop because of a defect, it is also possible that it has stopped as a result of certain watch characteristics. Before sending your watch in for service, therefore, it is worth asking yourself the following questions:

  • Has your manual watch been wound sufficiently?
  • Has your automatic watch been worn long enough for it to have built up the necessary power reserve? Our automatic mechanical watches have a power reserve of between 40 to 192 hours, depending on the model.

If none of the above are applicable, we would recommend that the watch is checked by a Blancpain authorized watchmaker.

DO BLANCPAIN WATCHES HAVE UNIDIRECTIONAL OR BIDIRECTIONAL WINDING MECHANISMS?

Most of our automatic systems are unidirectional, except some specific models.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUTOMATIC AND HAND-WINDING MOVEMENTS?

The difference between these two movements is the way in which the watch is wound. Mechanical watches function on the principle of the spring system. To wind the spring of a manual-winding watch the crown has to be turned. For automatic movements, however, the automatic winding system oscillates depending on the movements of your wrist and this action winds the spring.

WHEN TRYING TO START A SELF-WINDING WATCH, SHOULD I WIND IT OR SHAKE IT FIRST TO MAKE IT GO?

In order to give a watch sufficient power for the timing, it must first be wound by approximately 25 turns of the crown. Simply shaking an automatic watch is ill-advised and will not be sufficient to wind it up, nor would it contribute towards establishing a power reserve.

WHAT IS A POWER RESERVE?

The self-winding of a mechanical movement is generated by the motion of the wearer’s wrist. Therefore, since the self-winding mechanism of a watch, the rotor, is directly linked to the wearer’s activity, 10-12 hours of wear are generally sufficient to generate a power reserve and ensure that the watch will run throughout the night. If the watch is not worn regularly (i.e. not on a daily basis), is static due to the wearer’s inactivity, or is not worn for adequate periods of time, the power reserve will drain and it is possible that the watch will not be wound sufficiently for it to function properly. In this instance, it would be necessary for the crown to be wound manually.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BALANCE WHEEL USED BY BLANCPAIN, THEIR FUNCTION AND THE ADVANTAGES OF EACH?

The balance wheel consists of two principal elements, the felly and the hairspring. At Blancpain the felly is made from either titanium, which is only used for one particular calibre, or Glucydur, as both of these materials are largely unaffected by fluctuations in temperature. Hairsprings, previously manufactured by Blancpain from steel, are now
