Richemont Richemont Set Proposed Conversion To Registered Share Capital

The Richemont Board of Directors has announced its intention to propose amendments to the company’s articles of association at the shareholders’ meeting (‘2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders’) held in Geneva on Thursday, September 12, 2013. This modification converts the company’s A-share bearer shares traded on the Swiss Stock Exchange into registered shares. The corresponding Richemont A-share bearer stock will then be named Richemont A-share bearer stock.
Richemont’s proposal will further align with other leading Swiss companies, indicating that it will no longer use bearer shares throughout Europe. The change hopes to remove the ‘stock obstruction’ restrictions on anonymous shareholders who want to exercise voting rights at shareholders ‘meetings, which existed before the shareholders’ meeting. The proposal would then also facilitate trading of company shares.
The company’s share capital consists of 522 million A-share bearer shares and 522 million B-share registered shares. The proposal will convert A-share bearer shares traded on the Swiss stock exchange into A-share bearer shares. However, there is no suggestion to change the registered B shares.
The economic rights attached to A-share bearer shares remain unchanged. A-share registered shares will enjoy all the rights currently granted to A-share bearer shares, including dividends and voting rights.
This conversion of the company’s bearer shares into registered shares is not expected to result in a listing prospectus, as this change does not increase equity. However, a new International Security Identification Number (ISIN) and a new Swiss Stock Code (Valorennummer) will be assigned to registered shares. CFR, the stock code of the current A-share bearer stock will be retained.
In addition to being listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange, Richemont is also listed on the South African Depositary Receipts registered on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in Johannesburg. The depositary receipts are exchanged with Richemont A shares at a ratio of 10: 1. The amendments to the company’s articles of association and the conversion of A shares into registered shares and the creation of a register of shareholders in Switzerland have no economic impact on depositary receipts.
The proposed amendments to the company’s articles of association will be voted on at the 2013 shareholders’ meeting. According to the Swiss Company Law, a resolution to amend the company’s articles of association must be approved by more than two-thirds of shareholders and by a nominal majority of shareholders at the shareholders’ meeting. After the proposal has been agreed, the Richemont Group’s bearer shares will be replaced by registered shares and stipulates a date for elections at future shareholders’ meetings.
The newly registered shares are expected to be traded on the Swiss stock exchange on Tuesday, September 24, 2013. The third trading day after the first trading day, that is, September 27, 2013, changes in the shareholder escrow account will take effect.

Montblanc ‘tribute To Nicholas-kays’ Special Watch Writes The History Of Accurate Timekeeping In Short Time Slots, A New Interpretation Of Nicholas Kasch 1825 Ink Drop Timer

In 1821, Nicholas Kays invented the first patented ink drop timer in history. This timer relies on a second hand with ink to directly drive the time period. Kays It also became the first person to be awarded the patent, and became the source of inspiration for Montblanc’s modern watches. In 2015, in commemoration of its second timepiece designed in 1825, Montblanc launched a special ‘tribute to Nicholas Kays’ watch, a 43mm diameter special steel limited edition wristband released worldwide The watch complements the hand-made timepiece of 1825 and also reflects Nicolas Kasch’s continuous pursuit of higher accuracy.

 Today, the far-reaching influence of watchmaker Nicholas Kays has long been widely recognized. As early as the invention of the first patented ink-drop timer in 1821, he cleverly mounted two enamel-embedded dials on the ink-drop timer and fixed a hand shaped like a cracked feather Between the dials, the function of recording time is activated by the ink droplets deposited on the surface being moved slightly vertically by the wearer. In 1822, the timepiece was patented by the French Academy of Sciences in Paris. The word ‘Chronograph’, which is widely used today, also originates from this: the Greek names ‘chronos’ and ‘graphein’ are called ‘time writers’ by the world.
 From the perspective of etymology, the ‘time writer’ is also the best portrayal of Montblanc’s dedicated focus on writing instruments for more than 100 years. Since 2008, the concept of ‘writing time’ has inspired Montblanc’s watch craftsmen to start designing and creating a series of chronograph watches. The movements are all independently developed and manufactured by Montblanc, blending the essence of modernity and tradition. The timekeeping method of this high-performance watch movement draws inspiration from Nicholas Kasch’s first original chronograph. The spirit of this imaginative watch craftsman who has never stopped thinking and pursuing more accurate timekeeping is fully integrated into the work of modern watches-in 1825, Nicholas Kasch designed an improved version In this design, he abandoned the rotating gradient enamel dial and chose an elongated center seconds hand to rotate in the minute circle displayed on the dial. This slender second hand, which he named ‘Little Devil’, has an exquisite design. The tip of the second hand is composed of a very delicate device that allows users to store a very small amount of ink here and use it at any time on the dial surface. The ‘ink drop timing’ similar to the principle of the calligraphy pen makes this watch dreamer a recognized master of short-time timing, because the device he designed guarantees that users can accurately measure the length of time, with an accuracy of unprecedented 0.2 seconds.
 As time passes to 2015, Montblanc re-interprets Nicholas Kay’s 1825 ink drop chronograph with a new work, in tribute to the great master of timing. In terms of color and pointer design, the ‘tribute to Nicholas Case special’ watch faithfully reproduces the original appearance of the 1825 model, while using modern materials and manufacturing methods to make it more contemporary and modern. The new special model has date, dual time zone and day and night display functions. The stainless steel model will be limited to 565 pieces.
Creative innovation
 In order to ensure the accuracy of short-term timekeeping, and at the same time be faithful to the classic elements of the first design, Nicholas Kasch changed the previous time by rotating the chronograph to calculate the time and display the reading when creating the second ink drop timer. In the time mode, the chronograph hands that were originally located between the dials have also been moved to the dials on both sides, clearly showing the specific time of the seconds counter on the left and the 30-minute counter on the right. And this design does not allow the ink droplets to stay on the timer dial. Pressing the button at 8 o’clock lightly, these hands will pause. The corresponding lever on the column wheel transmits the time sequence through the vertical clutch to the gear, to the pivot, and then to the ring that points to a number similar to that on the dial of the original chronograph. In addition, the seconds hand located on the left side of the dial also includes a balancer, and the Montblanc “tribute to Nicholas Kaiser” special watch introduced this time also reflects this concept through two long blue steel hands.
 In a special watch, Montblanc clearly displays the hour scale and gradual chronograph on the dial. The traditional hour-marking circle is made of modern hybrid ceramic coated with the ‘mysterious luminous’ coating developed exclusively by the brand. Its clarity and light are reminiscent of the classic enamel dial. During the day, the dial’s sub-scale bezel display is no different from that of the same type, and at night, the special feature of this watch is perfectly presented with the bright light. In addition, the printed Roman numerals used on the 1825 ink-drop timer were also continued on the new model, and also made of modern mixed ceramics coated with ‘mysterious luminous’, the exquisite design is wheat ears. The dial adds a magical visual effect, which was also inspired by the treatment of the metal parts at the time. The 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock windows are matte polished, the former is used to display the date, the latter is decorated with fine guilloche patterns for day and night display, and the hollow hour hand is used to indicate the time in the second time zone.

Self-Closing One-Button Chronograph
 Combining traditional watchmaking with modern craftsmanship aesthetics, the self-made Calibre MB R200 automatic movement by Montblanc is used in this innovatively designed chronograph watch. This single-button chronograph movement uses carefully polished column wheels, and the gear transmission chain is connected to the entire watch’s timing system through a modern vertical clutch device, which can ensure the smooth operation of the chronograph function and effectively avoid The minute movement of the chronograph second hand when the chronograph starts.
 In addition, the dual barrel provides a power reserve of up to 72 hours for the movement. Calibre MB R200 movement not only stands out with its modern functional configuration, but also the aesthetic decoration that is faithful to traditional watchmaking technology is also a highlight. The movement’s splint is decorated with Geneva patterns and is polished with edges and corners. The traditional blue steel screws and aligned gears add a glorious balance to the 28,800 swing frequency per hour. This perfect high-performance movement is independently developed and manufactured by Montblanc Viller.
Inheriting tradition, new interpretation
 The ‘tribute to Nicholas Kays’ special watch is water-resistant to 30 meters, with a 43mm stainless steel case, with a modern design and smooth curved contours to create the best wrist comfort for every wearer. The micro-arched sapphire crystal and the bezel arc perfectly fit, and through the transparent case back, you can admire the high-performance movement composed of 319 carefully crafted parts.
 The special watch also comes with a black alligator leather strap and triple folding clasp. It is limited to 565 pieces worldwide. At the same time, this watch has professional certification, which shows that its performance has been rigorously tested by Montblanc laboratory for 500 hours, which can ensure that the wearer has effective quality assurance.
