“Emerald” Patone Color of the Year for 2013!

Companies like Pantone create standardized colors that help extend our color vocabulary across a variety of artistic industries. Two of those industries are fashion and interior design, and they’re interconnected.

Emerald fits another over-riding trend for 2013: A longing for luxury.

Emerald is known as the color of growth, renewal and prosperity according to color experts at Pantone.  The color has been rising for several seasons in both the fashion and decor markets and has increasingly become a staple color on the red carpet.  Green is the most abundant color in nature making it one of the most seen colors in the spectrum.

A COLOR FOR EVERY YEAR

Trend forecaster Pantone Color Institute annually sets a palette for fashion and home decor, pulling from current trends, tastes and national mood. From those color swatches, Pantone names one tone as its Color of the Year.

Since picking sky-blue Cerulean in 2000 as its “Color of the Millennium,” Pantone has stuck with blue tones, choosing five different blues in 14 years (including two shades of turquoise). A lot of trend watchers thought another blue – deep ocean Monaco Blue – would be the choice for 2013, but Pantone went for deep green Emerald instead.

Over the years, some colors – such as red-hot Chili Pepper – have had more staying power than others, sticking around from several seasons. But others – such as dusky Sand Dollar – seem like a ripple on the beach, quickly fading from memory.

Tourbillon Collection by Zitura

Tourbillon Collection by Zitura


What Is A Tourbillon?

Tourbillon (meaning “whirlwind” in French)  is a device invented by in 1795  Abraham Louis Breguet to counteract the effects of gravity in the accuracy of clocks and watches. The tourbillon was originally designed to eliminate errors of rate in pocket watches, which were kept in vertical positions for long periods of time.

How Does A Tourbillon Work?

When a watch is in the vertical position, gravity either accelerates or slows the balance and escapement mechanism that regulates the speed of rotation of the wheels. A tourbillon is comprised of a mobile carriage or cage containing the regulating mechanism (balance wheel with hairspring) and the lever escapement, with the balance in the center, and this mechanism rotates the wheels. The escape pinion turns about the fixed fourth wheel. By mounting the escapement in a rotating frame, all errors were reproduced and thereby cancelled the effect of gravity when the escapement is rotated 180°. The frame makes one revolution per minute, thus annulling errors of rate in the vertical position. The rotation of the whole device around the axis of the frame suppresses the effects of friction or other effects caused by unbalanced components and gravity.

Considered as one of the most complex of watch complications, tourbillons are prized for their engineering and design principles. Building a tourbillon is viewed as a testament to a watchmaker’s skill and the sheer complexity and achievement of such miniature handmade mechanisms makes the movement one of the most valued complications.
