While sitting in the Breitling explains that he designs movements not simply to be skeletonized, but rather as skeleton movements. Since their first calibre in 2009, the goal was to highlight dial animation, so that mechanical motion will be visible to the Replica Breitling Navitimer Watches UK | AAA Quality Breitling Navitimer For Sale and be highlighted by the overall design and architecture of the movement.
As you can imagine, this is especially complex from a planning and execution standpoint as they are not simply cutting away excess metal from an existing movement, but rather organizing all of the essential aspects of a movement so that the design promotes a view of the mechanical elements while still offering a functional and legible display.
Breitling makes as much of the components for their watches as possible, in-house. With only the hairspring and mainspring being outsourced. Additionally, none of the tiny gears, screws or other elements are stamped in production. Breitling goes to the extra trouble of always cutting or milling each piece. This is vastly more expensive but each component is of a higher quality and in-house production allows replica Cartier Ballon to customize a watch to the buyer's specifications.
This is not unlike the operating process for an F1 team where nothing is off-the-shelf and it would appear that no detail, whether part of the car or its litany of support systems, can be over-engineered or offer too-much customization. Whatever the team needs, they build to their specifications.
Once the wheels were off the car, you'd think you were watching a team of flight engineers disassemble a spaceship. The level of complexity underneath the carbon fiber skin of an F1 car is simply unreal. This bespoke thinking reaches beyond the design and functioning of the car and into all of the various support and race equipment used by the teams charged with keeping the car running.
Later in the day we got the chance to tour the Marussia pit garage and we were allowed a closer look at the level to which they go to do everything their own way. The jacks used during a pit stop are custom designed and manufactured at an eye-watering replica u boat. The same can be said for the gantry system that holds the tools and systems above the car for a pit stop, each team designs their own. For convenience and practicality, couldn't the teams use the same jacks and gantries? Sure, but in Formula One, competition is everything - and insane amounts of money are spent to foster and protect any possible advantage, legal or otherwise.
A consistent tenth of a second can be worth millions of dollars and the speed of a pit stop (where a lead can be just as easily torched as it can be protected) is based not only on the pinpoint placement of the car, but also the coordination and speed of a team of people with a very specific set of goals. So yeah, they make Breitling own jacks.
