Description

  • La présente invention concerne de manière générale un objet portable qui présente un effet décoratif. Ledit objet comprend au moins un élément transparent ou semi-transparent décoratif disposé et maintenu sur un support. Ledit élément présentant la forme et l'aspect d'une pierre précieuse.The present invention generally relates to a portable object that has a decorative effect. Said object comprises at least one decorative transparent or semi-transparent element arranged and held on a support. Said element having the shape and appearance of a gemstone.
  • ARRIERE PLAN TECHNOLOGIQUEBACKGROUND TECHNOLOGY
  • Il est connu dans l'art antérieur des objets portables tels que des montres dont l'esthétisme est amélioré en les sertissant d'éléments décoratifs. Habituellement, ces éléments décoratifs sont fixés sur un support, généralement une calotte qui peut être moulées directement sur la boîte de montre ou bien s'agir d'un élément rapporté dans lequel l'élément est serti pour ensuite être fixé à la montre. Ces éléments décoratifs peuvent être de vraies pierres précieuse mais aussi des éléments tels que des strass, du plastique brillant, du verre ou du cristal.It is known in the prior art portable objects such as watches whose aesthetics is improved by crimping them as decorative elements. Usually, these decorative elements are fixed on a support, generally a cap that can be molded directly on the watch case or be an insert in which the element is crimped and then be attached to the watch. These decorative elements can be real precious stones but also elements such as rhinestones, shiny plastic, glass or crystal.
  • Il est également connu de l'art antérieur un moyen de rehausser l'esthétisme de l'ensemble en augmentant l'éclat de l'élément décoratif. Cela permet en outre, lorsque lesdits éléments ne sont pas de vraies pierres précieuses, de donner l'illusion de vraies pierres. Cette augmentation de l'éclat est réalisé dans l'art antérieur en polissant les parois internes de la calotte dans laquelle l'élément décoratif est serti afin de réfléchir la lumière traversant ledit élément de décoration et d'augmenter ainsi l'éclat produit.It is also known from the prior art a way to enhance the aesthetics of the whole by increasing the brightness of the decorative element. This also allows, when said elements are not real gems, to give the illusion of real stones. This increase in brightness is achieved in the prior art by polishing the inner walls of the cap in which the decorative element is crimped to reflect the light passing through said decorative element and thereby increase the brightness produced.
  • Néanmoins, un des problèmes qui se pose est que cet éclat est subordonné à la lumière traversant ledit élément décoratif. Ainsi, lorsque la nuit tombe ou que le porteur de la montre se trouve dans une pièce sombre, la quantité de lumière traversant l'élément décoratif baisse considérablement jusqu'à atteindre une valeur nulle, et donc aucun éclat n'apparait aux yeux du porteur enlevant alors l'effet esthétique produit en temps normal par lesdits éléments décoratifs.Nevertheless, one of the problems that arises is that this brightness is subordinated to the light passing through said decorative element. So when the night falls or the wearer of the watch is in a dark room, the amount of light passing through the decorative element drastically decreases to a value of zero, and therefore no shine appears in the eyes of the wearer then removing the aesthetic effect produced in normal times by said decorative elements.
  • On connait également de l'art antérieur les documents GB 2 136 672 , DE 203 11 000 et JP2001252112 divulguant chacun un objet portable qui présente un effet décoratif comprenant au moins un élément transparent ou semi-transparent décoratif disposé et maintenu sur un support. Une couche de matériau luminescent est disposée au moins entre une partie du support et l'élément décoratif maintenu sur le support pour produire un effet visuel à travers l'élément par réflexion et réfraction de la lumière le traversant.We also know from the prior art the documents GB 2,136,672 , DE 203 11,000 and JP2001252112 each disclosing a portable object having a decorative effect comprising at least one decorative transparent or semitransparent element disposed and held on a support. A layer of luminescent material is disposed at least between a portion of the support and the decorative element held on the support to produce a visual effect through the element by reflection and refraction of the light therethrough.
  • RESUME DE L'INVENTIONSUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • L'invention concerne un objet portable qui pallie les inconvénients susmentionnés de l'art antérieur en proposant un agencement avec un élément décoratif produisant un éclat même lorsque la quantité de lumière ambiante traversant l'élément devient faible, voir nulle.The invention relates to a portable object that overcomes the aforementioned disadvantages of the prior art by providing an arrangement with a decorative element producing a brightness even when the amount of ambient light passing through the element becomes low, or even zero.
  • A cet effet, l'invention concerne un objet portable à effet décoratif cité ci-devant qui comprend une couche de matériau luminescent étant disposée au moins entre une partie du support et l'élément décoratif maintenu sur le support pour produire un effet visuel à travers l'élément par réflexion et réfraction de la lumière le traversant, ledit élément décoratif comprenant une culasse, dans laquelle sont taillées plusieurs facettes et une couronne également facettée et surmontée d'une table, la culasse dudit élément étant tronquée, et qui se caractérise en ce que la surface de la culasse tronquée de l'élément décoratif en regard du fond du support se trouve à une distance de 0.25 mm de la couche de matériau luminescent et en ce que le support est une calotte, dont le fond est plat et la paroi latérale cylindrique circulaire, la couche de matériau luminescent étant déposée au fond de ladite calotte.To this end, the invention relates to a portable object with decorative effect cited above which comprises a layer of luminescent material being disposed at least between a portion of the support and the decorative element held on the support to produce a visual effect through the element by reflection and refraction of the light passing therethrough, said decorative element comprising a yoke, in which are cut several facets and a crown also faceted and surmounted by a table, the yoke of said element being truncated, and which is characterized by the surface of the truncated yoke of the decorative element facing the bottom of the support is at a distance of 0.25 mm from the layer of luminescent material and in that the support is a cap, whose bottom is flat and the side wall circular cylindrical, the layer of luminescent material being deposited at the bottom of said cap.
  • Des modes de réalisation avantageux de cet objet portable font l'objet des revendications dépendantes 2 à 9.Advantageous embodiments of this portable object are the subject of dependent claims 2 to 9.
  • Un des avantages de la présente invention est d'avoir un objet portable disposant d'une esthétique améliorée en ce que cette esthétique est à la fois visible à la lumière du jour mais aussi lorsque la luminosité ambiante diminue. Cette caractéristique est due à la couche de matériau luminescent.One of the advantages of the present invention is to have a portable object having an improved aesthetic in that this aesthetic is both visible in the light of day but also when the ambient brightness decreases. This characteristic is due to the layer of luminescent material.
  • Avantageusement, cette couche de matériau luminescent est située entre chaque élément décoratif et le fond du support de maintien permettant ainsi, sous faible ambiance lumineuse, de générer de la lumière afin d'illuminer les éléments décoratifs tels que des pierres précieuses ou autres strass. Cela permet de fournir alors un effet esthétique supplémentaire.Advantageously, this layer of luminescent material is located between each decorative element and the bottom of the support support thus allowing, in a weak luminous atmosphere, to generate light in order to illuminate the decorative elements such as precious stones or other rhinestones. This then provides an additional aesthetic effect.
  • Outre l'aspect esthétique, un autre avantage de la présente invention est que ces éléments décoratifs, dont l'effet esthétique est perçu même en cas de faible luminosité, peuvent être utilisés en tant qu'indicateur. En effet, si ces éléments décoratifs sont disposés à des endroits clés de la boîte de montre, ils peuvent alors servir de point de repère pour l'indication de l'heure ainsi l'association à une aiguille, elle aussi pourvue de ce matériau luminescent, permet la visualisation de l'heure en milieu à faible luminosité tout en profitant d'un effet esthétique.In addition to the aesthetic appearance, another advantage of the present invention is that these decorative elements, whose aesthetic effect is perceived even in low light, can be used as an indicator. Indeed, if these decorative elements are arranged at key locations of the watch case, they can then serve as a landmark for the indication of time and the association with a needle, also provided with this luminescent material , allows viewing the time in low light environment while enjoying an aesthetic effect.
  • Un autre exemple pourrait être de disposer les éléments décoratifs afin de former une figure ou un signe qui s'illuminerait une fois que la luminosité serait faible telle qu'une constellation par exemple.Another example could be to arrange the decorative elements to form a figure or a sign that would illuminate once the brightness is low such as a constellation for example.

    • the figure 4 schematically represents a third variant of the decorative element.
  • DESCRIPTION DETAILLEEDETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • La figure 1 représente une forme préférée de l'objet portable selon la présente invention, c'est-à-dire sous la forme d'une montre et plus particulièrement un cadran 1 de montre. Il est bien évident que d'autres formes sont envisageables tels que des bijoux : bagues, colliers, bracelets ou même des objets portables comme des téléphones ou autre. Le cadran est fixé à la platine de la montre et sert à l'affichage. En effet, cette pièce qu'est le cadran, peut comprendre les marquages indiquant les heures, les minutes et les secondes, mais aussi les jours et ainsi de suite. Le cadran peut aussi comprendre un certain nombre de guichets par lesquels les indications du quantième ou les phases de lune sont indiquées.The figure 1 represents a preferred form of the portable object according to the present invention, that is to say in the form of a watch and more particularly a watch dial 1. It is obvious that other forms are possible such as jewelry: rings, necklaces, bracelets or even portable objects such as telephones or other. The dial is attached to the watch's plate and is used for display. Indeed, this piece that is the dial, can include the markings indicating the hours, minutes and seconds, but also the days and so on. The dial may also include a number of windows by which the date indications or moon phases are indicated.
  • Le cadran 1 selon la figure 1 présente une ouverture principale pour le passage des axes des aiguilles (non représentés) de la montre. On peut voir sur ce cadran une série d'éléments décoratifs 2 agencés pour former un motif esthétique. Sur l'exemple montré à la figure 1, la série d'éléments décoratifs prend la forme d'une constellation zodiacale, mais il va de soi que n'importe quel motif peut être réalisé. De plus, une autre forme de réalisation peut être d'utiliser ces éléments décoratifs 2 pour l'indication des heures ou autre.Dial 1 according to the figure 1 has a main opening for the passage of the axes of the needles (not shown) of the watch. We can see on this dial a series of decorative elements 2 arranged to form an aesthetic pattern. In the example shown in figure 1 the series of decorative elements takes the form of a zodiacal constellation, but it goes without saying that any motif can be realized. In addition, another embodiment may be to use these decorative elements 2 for the indication of hours or other.
  • Ces éléments décoratifs 2 sont représentés en détail aux figures 2, 3 et 4. Ces éléments décoratifs 2 sont généralement en matériau transparent ou semi-transparent présentant une taille similaire à celle des diamants, ou toute autre taille offrant un aspect esthétique intéressant. Les tailles possibles de pierre sont les tailles de type brillant ou baguette ou d'autres types à plusieurs facettes. Cet élément décoratif comprend ainsi une culasse 3, dans laquelle sont taillées plusieurs facettes, et une couronne 4 également facettée et surmontée d'une table 5. Dans l'optique de réaliser des économies, l'élément décoratif 2 peut être constitué de préférence par un morceau de verre, de cristal, de plastique transparent ou de strass. Rien toutefois n'exclut l'usage d'un brillant.These decorative elements 2 are represented in detail in Figures 2, 3 and 4 . These decorative elements 2 are generally transparent or semi-transparent material having a size similar to that of diamonds, or any other size offering an attractive aesthetic appearance. Possible stone sizes are glossy or wand type or other multi-faceted types. This decorative element thus comprises a yoke 3, in which are cut several facets, and a crown 4 also faceted and surmounted by a table 5. In order to achieve savings, the decorative element 2 may be preferably made of a piece of glass, crystal, transparent plastic or rhinestones. Nothing, however, excludes the use of a gloss.
  • Cet élément décoratif 2 est logé dans un support 6 puis fixé de sorte à ne pas sortir dudit support. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, le support 6 prend la forme d'une calotte, dont le fond 8 est plat et la paroi latérale 7, cylindrique circulaire. Le bord supérieur 9 de la paroi 7 est rabattu par dessus le feuilletis 4a de l'élément décoratif 2. Il constitue ainsi une sertissure de ce dernier dans la calotte 6, qui le tient donc fermement en place. On comprendra néanmoins que toute forme de support 6 possible est envisageable et que des supports 6 pouvant comprendre plusieurs éléments décoratifs 2 sont également possibles. De plus, on comprendra également que tout moyen, pour maintenir ledit élément décoratif 2 au support 6, peut être envisagé.This decorative element 2 is housed in a support 6 and then fixed so as not to leave said support. In a preferred embodiment, the support 6 takes the form of a cap, whose bottom 8 is flat and the side wall 7, circular cylindrical. The upper edge 9 of the wall 7 is folded over the laminate 4a of the decorative element 2. It thus constitutes a crimp of the latter in the cap 6, which holds it firmly in place. It will be understood, however, that any form of support 6 possible is possible and that supports 6 may include several decorative elements 2 are also possible. In addition, it will also be understood that any means for holding said decorative element 2 to the support 6 can be envisaged.
  • Ce qui fait que la présente invention résout le problème susmentionné est que la calotte 6 est agencée pour comprendre une couche de matériau luminescent 10. En effet, il est prévu qu'une couche de matériau luminescent 10 soit déposée dans le fond 8 de la calotte. Ainsi le matériau luminescent peut émettre de la lumière qui va alors traverser l'élément décoratif 2 et par réflexion et réfraction, lui donner un éclat supplémentaire.What makes the present invention solves the above problem is that the cap 6 is arranged to include a layer of luminescent material 10. Indeed, it is expected that a layer of luminescent material 10 is deposited in the bottom 8 of the cap . Thus the luminescent material can emit light which will then pass through the decorative element 2 and by reflection and refraction, give it an additional brightness.
  • On peut également prévoir qu'une couche de matériau luminescent 10 puisse être déposée en sus sur les faces internes des parois 7 de la calotte 6, comme représenté à la figure 4, afin de respectivement augmenter la quantité de lumière qui traversera l'élément 2 ou simplement modifier la diffusion de ladite lumière émise.It can also be provided that a layer of luminescent material 10 can be deposited in addition on the inner faces of the walls 7 of the cap 6, as shown in FIG. figure 4 , respectively to increase the amount of light that will pass through the element 2 or simply to modify the diffusion of said emitted light.
  • Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, il est prévu que le matériau luminescent soit un matériau phosphorescent. Effectivement, un tel matériau est très pratique en ce qu'à la lumière du jour, il n'est nul besoin d'augmenter artificiellement l'éclat de l'élément décoratif 2, la lumière du jour suffisant amplement. Mais lorsque la luminosité ambiante baisse, la lumière du jour devient insuffisante pour maintenir l'éclat dudit élément 2. Pour cela un matériau phosphorescent prend toute sa valeur puisque ledit matériau peut accumuler la lumière du jour lorsque la luminosité ambiante est bonne et lorsque celle-ci diminue, le matériau phosphorescent va émettre de la lumière afin de combler cette diminution. Cela permet alors de conserver l'éclat de l'élément décoratif 2 améliorant ainsi le rendu esthétique.In a preferred embodiment, the luminescent material is expected to be a phosphorescent material. Indeed, such a material is very practical in that in the light of day, there is no need to artificially increase the brightness of the decorative element 2, daylight ample amply. But when the ambient light falls, the daylight becomes insufficient to maintain the brightness of said element 2. For this a phosphorescent material takes all its value since said material can accumulate daylight when the ambient brightness is good and when it decreases, the phosphorescent material will emit light to fill this decrease. This then preserves the brightness of the decorative element 2 thus improving the aesthetic rendering.
  • De façon encore plus préférentielle, on peut choisir, comme matériau phosphorescent, du LUMINOVA® qui possède comme caractéristique le fait d'avoir d'émettre une lumière plus lumineuse et ce, pendant une durée plus longue, tout en étant dépourvu de composants chimiques radioactifs.Even more preferentially, LUMINOVA® may be chosen as a phosphorescent material which has the characteristic of having to emit a brighter light and this, for a longer period, while being devoid of radioactive chemical components. .
  • La calotte 6 est réalisée afin qu'un élément décoratif taillé pour prendre l'aspect et la forme d'une pierre précieuse puisse entrer en entier dans ladite calotte 6 comme montrer à la figure 3. Néanmoins pour un gain de place, il peut être prévu que l'élément décoratif 2 soit tronqué. Dans le cas d'un élément taillé tel qu'un diamant, ce serait la culasse 3 dudit élément qui serait tronquée. Dans cette configuration, il sera fait en sorte que la surface 11 ainsi formée par cette troncature soit située à une certaine distance de la couche 10 de matériau luminescent. Cette configuration permet alors une meilleure diffusion de la lumière émise par le matériau luminescent et donc un effet visuel renforcé par rapport à une configuration où la surface tronquée 11 de l'élément décoratif 2 serait directement en contact avec ladite couche de matériau 10. On notera qu'une distance comprise entre 0 mm et 0.25 mm procure un effet visuel optimal.The cap 6 is made so that a decorative element cut to take the appearance and shape of a gemstone can enter entirely into said cap 6 as shown in FIG. figure 3 . Nevertheless for a saving of space, it can be expected that the decorative element 2 is truncated. In the case of a cut element such as a diamond, it would be the yoke 3 of said element which would be truncated. In this configuration, it will be ensured that the surface 11 thus formed by this truncation is located at a distance from the layer 10 of luminescent material. This configuration then allows a better diffusion of the light emitted by the luminescent material and therefore a stronger visual effect compared to a configuration where the truncated surface 11 of the decorative element 2 would be directly in contact with said layer of material 10. It will be noted that a distance between 0 mm and 0.25 mm provides an optimal visual effect.
  • L'ensemble, comprenant la calotte sur laquelle est serti l'élément décoratif 2, est fixé au cadran par collage du fond de la calotte 6 au fond du logement. Pour éviter des tensions internes dans le cadran, le diamètre de la calotte 6 peut être légèrement inférieur à celui du logement. Néanmoins, on peut aussi prévoir le fait que la calotte 6, dans laquelle est serti l'élément décoratif 1, est directement intégrée dans le cadran lors de sa fabrication évitant ainsi les problèmes de tension entre les différentes pièces. Bien entendu la description ci-dessus concernée le cas où les éléments décoratifs 2 sont situés sur le cadran d'une montre, mais il est possible que ces éléments 2 soient aussi intégrés au boîtier de la montre et dès lors, aucun changement significatif n'est à prévoir.The assembly, comprising the cap on which is crimped the decorative element 2, is fixed to the dial by gluing the bottom of the cap 6 at the bottom of the housing. To avoid internal tensions in the dial, the diameter of the cap 6 may be slightly less than that of the housing. Nevertheless, it is also possible to provide for the fact that the cap 6, in which the decorative element 1 is crimped, is directly integrated into the dial during its manufacture. thus avoiding the problems of tension between the different parts. Of course the description above concerned the case where the decorative elements 2 are located on the dial of a watch, but it is possible that these elements 2 are also integrated into the watch case and therefore no significant change n ' is to be expected.
  • On comprendra que diverses modifications et/ou améliorations et/ou combinaisons évidentes pour l'homme du métier peuvent être apportées aux différents modes de réalisation de l'invention exposée ci-dessus sans sortir du cadre de l'invention définie par les revendications annexées.It will be understood that various modifications and / or improvements and / or combinations obvious to those skilled in the art can be made to the various embodiments of the invention set out above without departing from the scope of the invention defined by the appended claims.
