The designer – Mark Lui has coordinated with Memorigin for launching a timepiece. He aimed to design a modern tourbillon watch, while embracing a classic appearance.
Through collaborating with Memorigin, Mark has been inspired by the brand philosophy of the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern cogitation. Especially, it is a big challenge to let the complicated mechanical movement to achieve the accuracy.
With the combination of the above ideas, the concept of “steampunk” came across in his mind, where it was related to the industrial revolution of steamed mechanics dated back to the 19th Century. Through the design, Mark is hoping not only to present the timekeeping function, but it also be served as an art piece for users to appreciate its design.
Mark Lui has designed this tourbillon watch with both modern and classic design, combining with a rough feeling to produce a very special tourbillon that’s different from the ones in the market. There are 4 circular windows on the watch surface as one of the major breakthrough. Each of them is of different height giving us different visual delights at different perspectives.
The 4 circular windows symbolize factory smokestacks. Looking in the user’s perspective, the crown is also coming with a cushion to avoid any injuries during winding the watch. There are two shades for “The Time Machine”, giving us very different perceptions. The rosegold surface coupled with a dark brown alligator strap gives a retro feeling while the silver surface is coupled with a navy blue alligator strap giving simplicity and a modern style.
With Mark’s attention to every single detail, the packaging of “The Time Machine” is also very well designed with a gear shaped button that aligned with the timepiece’s design. Besides, accompanied with the delicately stitched cushion, “The Time Machine” is definitely an art piece with quality materials.
