Memorigin MICHAE10WEN Goals of a Legend Tourbillon

The legendary striker and English football superstar, Michael Owen, has received numerous accolades for his prodigious football skills. He scored a total of 263 goals in his professional football career and was awarded the honorary FIFA Ballon d’Or in 2001. After his retirement, he has been devoted to the promotion of football and equestrian sports culture. Last year, he established his first venture in the fashion industry, MICHA10WEN. Teaming up with the sportswear maker ANIFA, the brand launched a series of advanced apparel, which includes comfortable yet stylish sports suits and the functional waterproof TechKnit Jacket.

Speed was always a significant aspect of Owen’s football. As a player he seized every second of every game and is undoubtedly one of the fastest players to have ever graced a football pitch.

This year, MICHA10WEN partnered with Memorigin, the Hong Kong Tourbillon watch brand, to present his own limited-edition ‘MICHAE10WEN Goals of a Legend Tourbillon’ watch. Designed by Owen, the precious tourbillon features his favorite sport, football.

Fitting his modest style, Owen designed the wrist watch in dark tone. At the 9 o’clock position of the dial, there is a hollow football pattern shaped by simple geometric lines. The red frame which encircles the rotor represents the 45-minute half in a football match. The index ‘10’ is also red in color to match Owen’s number 10 football shirt.

As Owen loves travelling, he specifically added the GMT dual time-zone indicator at 6 o’clock position to display two different times and thereby making his busy journeys more efficient. The geometric football pattern can also be seen at the pointer. To memorialize the prestigious Ballon d’Or honor he received in 2001, he has highlighted the watch with the impressive gold-plated football sphere at the 12 o’clock position.

The automatic winding movement, which has been chosen by Memorigin for this series, provides 40-hour power reserve with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Located at the 3 o’clock position, the flying tourbillon is covered with sapphire glass to provide multi-dimensional views and to enhance its mechanical feel. The series is only limited to 263 pieces worldwide.

The back of each watch has been engraved in the order and the date of the 263 goals that Owen scored in his football career. Each watch comes with an individual certificate of authenticity that is personally signed by Owen and includes a personal quote from him about each individual goal he scored goal throughout his impressive career. The watches record every precious and meaningful moment of Michael Owen’s career on the football pitch.

With at least 155 pieces of subassembly module and 18 jewels, 2 rubies on Jelephant’s eyes and 12 diamonds as index.

Memorigin Stellar Series Imperial

The Memorigin Stellar Series Imperial comes with two colors, Silver (with 18K white gold, USD 7,629) and Gold (with 18K gold, USD 7,629).

A 3-dimensional case revealed in different angles, a 18K solid gold / white gold square border links 4 elements on the dial together, including the flying tourbillon at 3 o’clock position, the sphere-shaped GMT Indicator located at 6 o’clock, the time reading sub-dial at 9 o’clock position and the Chinese ancient planetarium featured decoration at 12 o’clock position, which projects the merge of Chinese philosophy – round sky flat earth, and Western worldview.

The round shaped watch case encompassing the inner 18K gold / white gold border, symbolizes the interconnectivity of Yin and Yang. Originated in the Chinese Han dynasty, “Yin” and “Yang” stress the balance of two seemingly opposite forces which complement each other in the natural world. Yin and Yang are the core principals of many Chinese studies, such as Chinese medicine, Chinese martial arts and Taoism.

Dragon symbolizes “Yang” while Phoenix symbolizes “Yin”. They complement each other in creating balance which leads to successful matrimonial bliss. The Dragon is hand carved at the 3 o’clock position, which can be seen clearly through the side of the sapphire glass, within the 1.5mm ring on the watch. It seems to be flying while the tourbillon is rotating. This is a hidden part that Memorigin designers leave for all watch collectors to discover. On the other hand, the Phoenix is hand carved at the 9 o’clock position, in its flying position while facing the Dragon.

The armillary sphere in the 12 o’clock position with moon and stars background symbolizes ancient Chinese astronomy. It was believed that the continuous rotation of this sphere brings on good luck. Back in Eastern Han Dynasty of China (25–220 A.D.), a Chinese expert in astronomy – Zhang Heng invented celestial globes to assist with the observation of the stars. They used the armillary sphere later in aiding calendrical computations and calculations.

On the other side of the Earth, Swiss watch master – Abraham-Louis Breguet created the first generation of tourbillon watch that became a milestone and lightened the development of watches.

In order to pay tribute to these pioneers, Memorigin merges the essences from different cultures, engraving the history in this timepiece by installing the Chinese ancient planetarium featured decoration on the dial of this tourbillon watch.

In the 16th century, Mr. Ferdinand Magellan completed the first circumnavigation of the Earth and proved that the Earth was an oblate sphere. Therefore, Memorigin specially marked the Cape of Good Hope as the pointer of the GMT indicator at the 6 o’clock position. All the exploration came from here and dreams started from here. The world map on the GMT indicator shows GMT timing as well as the Silk Road, illustrating the ancient Chinese trade route with its connecting countries, presenting a new way to display the dual time zone.

Every year, Memorigin aims to develop an innovative watch design to break through the traditional appearance of tourbillon watches. After extensive R&D spanning, Memorigin created a special sapphire glass only for this series to optimize the stunning effect of the rotating tourbillon while viewing through the sapphire glass from different angles. When you look carefully at the side of the sapphire glass, a symbol of hand carved dragon is engraved in the tourbillon, displaying the characteristic of this specially-made sapphire glass.

Movement is the core of a timepiece. Memorigin specially presents this automatic tourbillon movement for this Series; it provides 40 hours of power reserve, with a frequency of 28,800 Oscillation/Hour. The flying tourbillion at 3 o’clock position engraved with Memorigin’s logo on the tourbillon. This unique feature without affecting the stability of the tourbillon differentiates Memorigin’s tourbillon watches from the others in the market.

Memorigin – The Time Machine, Designed by Mark Lui

Designed by Hong Kong based artist Mark Lui, the Time Machine from Memorigin is 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.

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.

Mark Lui had designed his tourbillon 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, where it also looks as if it is a telescope that attracts us to look into mechanical mystery. 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 rose gold 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.

Memorigin KuTour Typhoon and Tweed Tourbillons by Ms. Priscilla Ku

Hong Kong actress – Ms. Priscilla Ku, who is also a GIA jewelry appraiser and designer, has been enthusiastic on the jewelry design for many years. She aims to merge her fashion sense with the traditional jewelry design. The fashionable appearance and magnificent function are penetrated successfully in her designs. Furthermore, she has designed an extraordinary phase on her artworks that accessory can be divided and assembled to feature with different apparels which enhances the utility and freshness of the jewelry.

In 2014, Ms. Priscilla Ku worked with a Hong Kong tourbillon brand – Memorigin for creating her own brand – KuTour. Two separate tourbillon series, Typhoon and Tweed, were launched under the timeless effort of Memorigin and Ms. Priscilla Ku.

Typhoon is a tourbillon watch based on the satellite image of a typhoon passing through China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. On the dial, the curve lines represent the isobars of the satellite image. With diamonds in different colours encircled, they form the continental and ocean alike. In the middle, it is the location of Hong Kong. The typhoon is transformed into rotating tourbillon. Besides, the harmony among China, Hong Kong and Taiwan is the extraordinary blessing from the watch design. By using different diamonds with different colours, the details and shining gems enriched everyone’s eyesight.

For Tweed, the design inspiration comes from the checked woollen cloth pattern with a simple colour tone. In order to form the interweave effect of the woollen cloth perfectly, different kind of gems were assembled like the black gems, sapphire, diamonds and grey diamonds. Thus, the jewelry workers spent unlimited working hours on the cutting process to imitate the sophisticated pattern of the woollen cloth.

Apart from the special design on the appearance, a deep inspiration about life is implied. She aims to express the true meaning of harmony. Just like the pattern of the fabric, the circular outlook with rectangular inner design implies the concept of Chinese proverbs “following the rule and act wisely”.

In the story, the main character – “Seiya” fights and grows with his teammates that tackles all the obstacles and never give up until igniting the last Kosumo (energy).

In 2016, the establishment of “Saint Seiya” stepped into the 30th anniversary.

Rubies and sapphires are embedded on the dial as the indexes on the watch which seems to visualize the concept of Zodiacs in the “Saint Seiya”, theming the ancient Greek mythology.

In comic, the image of “Seiya” must be the main highlight. However, you must miss out “Athena” (called Saori in the comic). Holding Goddess of Victoryscepter, “Athena” leads the Saints to compete with the devils who created the sample of “Goddess of Lady”. While the designers drafting the design of the watch, they also noticed the place of “Athena” in everyone’s heart.

In order to focus the heavy position of “Athena”, designers seal an implicit image of the Athena’s scepter embossment on the 9 o’clock position on the dial for featuring the power reserve indictor, matching the heroic phase of Athena endowing the Saints with power. On the design, the production process consumes full energy of the team. The production of the movement must not be sloppy.

Memorigin Sculpture Series – Guanyin

This tourbillon timepiece created by Memorigin pays tribute to the Chinese culture and Buddhism.

Originated in India, Buddhism became a major religion in Asian countries. Among the Buddhist scriptures translated to Chinese language the “Heart Sutra” is a significant one. The monk – Xuanzang in Tang dynasty translated this scripture into Chinese, within 260 words version of “Heart Sutra” is widely spread among the Asian countries.

In Buddhism, after Gautama Buddha, Guanyin is a remarkable character. Guanyin’s character appears in different stories and books. In Chinese culture the main role of the Guanyin is to listen to different people’s words. Guanyin is not just an important role in Buddhism, but it’s also representing the wisdom of the Chinese culture.

The tourbillon watch brand Memorigin specially produced the “Sculpture Series” – Guanyin by engraving different lines to form the perspective “Heart Sutra” on the dial which behind the sculpture of Guanyin.

In this timepiece, Memorigin succeeded a difficult challenge of engraving 260 words of the “Heart Sutra” and it appears with the spectacular engraved background. Each stroke of the words is tiny within 0.03mm to 0.05mm. In order to minimize the thickness and revealing the texture of the word engraving, Memorigin has chosen “the mother of pearl” for the dial.

For the initial design, the watch masters intended to display the hands on top of the sculpture of Guanyin, but it seems declines the beauty of the watch. Moreover, the most important issue is that it would cover the details of the Guanyin sculpture. To preserve the whole appearance of the Guanyin, Memorigin made a breakthrough of placing the hands under the sculpture.

The tourbillon is displayed on the 12 o’ clock position which represent a “halo” from behind the sculpture with the intensive luminous material and “Om manipadme hum” surrounding. Besides, Memorigin typically selected the 40-hour-tourbillon movement in frequency of 28,800 oscillations / hour for this series. The functions and the exquisite sculpture enhance the artistic value this tourbillon watch.

Memorigin Eternity Series Lady’s Tourbillon Watch Collection

In 2015, Memorigin created a ladies’ tourbillon watch in association with Mary Yu, a Hong Kong based designer who was elected as one of the JCI Hong Kong Ten Outstanding Young Persons in 2011.

Mary was responsible for designing the staff uniform of the Equestrian competitions at the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics that is named as the future star in the design industry. Although she had rich experience on the design works, this is the first time for her to take the challenge in launching a tourbillon watch – a kind of most complicated mechanical watch in the World. With the assistance of the Memorigin, a Lady’s tourbillon watch collection – Eternity Series is finished, with a love story behind representing the lifelong love.

Designer – Mary projected an image of 2 swans swimming in the lake on the dial, expressing the faith of true love. Once you look carefully, 2 swans look each other head to head, forming a heart shape, under a shining lake background made by mother of pearl. The 10 pieces of diamond are forming as the ripples on the lake sparkling under the sun. The 4 pieces of ruby seem like the roses along the lake. A great picture with a great romantic story happens in this way.

As the size of ladies’ watch is small, the assembling procedure is more complex than making a men’s watch. In order to provide a highly stable timepiece, Memorigin aim to launch the tourbillon movement in a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour. The off-center tourbillon gives an intense momentum from the appearance.

There are 2 versions of Eternity Series: Rose gold plated case with pink alligator strap and Stainless steel case with sky-blue alligator strap.

Memorigin Avengers2 Series Iron Man and Captain America – Superhero Crossover Tourbillon Watch Collection

Introduced in 2015, the Superhero crossover tourbillon watch collection – Avengers2 Series pays tribute to two popular Superheros – Iron Man and Captain America, the characters in the movie – “Avengers: Age of Ultron. On 23r April 2015, the Avengers2 Series was officially presented for sale along with the release of the movie.

In order to match the setting of the characters in the movie, Memorigin applied a new skill on coating different from the past, tuning the colour of coating approaching to appearance of the characters. In the movie, the palm of the Iron Man can emit a destructive beam. Memorigin embedded a VVS white diamond (0.13 karat) with 10 diamonds surrounding as the index on the dial to realize the beam shooting gesture – a well-known signature of Iron Man. Also, the tourbillon is positioned at the heart of the Iron Man embossment looks like the central heart device of Iron Man.

Another two highlights are the metal strap and the buckle. The main colours – red and rose gold are the emphases and plated on the metal strap. When you opened the lock the metal strap, you can adjust the length freely by hand instead of using a hand tool.

Comparing to the Avengers2 Series – Iron Man, the finishing the Avengers2 Series – Captain America is more difficult. In order to present the real appearance of the Captain America on the dial, every line and feature should be outlined accurately. Otherwise, there will be a deviation on the appearance. As this reason, Memorigin specially invited a Germent watch maker to fine-tune and revise the embossment of the Captain America.

It took 3 months to finish a fine outlined and rich three-dimensional Captain America embossment. Although the engraving structure is fixed, the coating is another issue to cope with. As the area of coating is large, any error on the production will cause complete damage the dial. Same as his fellow – Avengers2 – Iron Man, 10 pieces of VVS diamond are embedded as the index on the dial matching with the blue coloured Captain America well.  The buckle is another highlight of this watch as it is made as shell of Captian America alike.

Starting from the design of the manual guide, it is creative that one book includes the specifications of the 2 watches, only 2 front covers and no back cover. Flipping the book from right to left (Iron Man cover), a series of Iron Man’s featured photos are showcased. On the other hand, from left to right, it is the featured coverage of Captain America. Not only be the inside content attractive, but the special 2 covers in three-dimensional effect might capture your eye-sight. Unlike the traditional manual guide, it seems like a story book that let you read through it.

Besides, the watch box preserves another talking topic on the watches. Based on the watch model, the manual guide cover (Iron Man or Captain America) is placed in the cage of the box which displays under glass of Avengers trademark on the top of the box.

The tourbillon’s polishing, assembly and quality control is overseen by master watchmakers and their teams to ensure the “perfection of art”.

Silver is the main colour tone of The Star Wars Series – Captain Phasma tourbillon, the designer used an abstract way to make Captain Phasma appears on the dial. The black plastic assembled on the skeletal movement is the eyeshades as a symbol of Captain Phasma; you can see a little part of the movement when you look through it.

The 12 black diamonds around the dial are the index of the watch. Two colours, black and silver have been using to form the prestige and cool pattern on the case. The black sapphire glass is assembled at the back of the case; it adds a filter for the movement.

Michele Reis X iPANDAS Memorigin Tourbillon Watch

In 2015, on its 25th anniversary, Hong Kong based IPS (Integrated Publicity Services Ltd.) introduced an adorable commemorative mascot iPANDAS and started to organize a variety of charitable projects with different parties. As the inaugural project, IPS joined hands with Ms. Michele Reis to create the MICHELEX iPANDAS Memorigin Tourbillon Watch with the full support of Memorigin. The proceeds raised were to donate to the JMJ Children’s Charitable Foundation co-founded by Michele and her husband Julian Hui, in order to support the conservation of giant pandas in Sichuan.

The MICHELE X iPANDAS Memorigin Tourbillon Watch gives a refreshing twist to the masculine and strong tourbillon timepiece by marrying the adorable iPANDAS motif with complicated craftsmanship. The meticulously carved iPANDAS motif on the black nickel plated skeleton dial is finished with a special coating technology to create a refined and smooth matte effect. The biggest challenge lies in creating a three-dimensional panda within the narrow space between the dial and the sapphire crystal. As the rose gold plated luminous dauphine hands sit on the panda’s legs, the thickness of the relief must be precisely crafted so that it won’t be too thin to work on or too thick and hinder the operation of other components. The vivid and exquisite three-dimensional effect is the result of repeated fine-tunings.

A new engraving technique is used on the dial to highlight the lovely panda and the exceptional design, while the black nickel plated skeleton heart patterns on the back consist of the letters “JMJ” to mark the concerted effort between the JMJ Children’s Charitable Foundation and iPANDAS. The advanced CNC engraving technology ensures that every heart is perfect and identical.

On the black nickel plated skeleton dial are ten sparkling diamond indexes and two precious rubies at 2 o’clock and 5 o’clock respectively to commemorate the 25thanniversary of IPS. Fitted with Memorigin’s movement MO1128,this model comprises 155 subassembly modules and 18 jewel bearings. Apart from a power reserve of upto 40 hours, it also features a tourbillon at 6 o’clock that oscillates at 28,800 oscillations per hour, ensuring precision and an appealing design.

Michele also lent her creativity to the strap design. Alligator straps in four colors are available to reveal a modern charm. While the panda-inspired black and white are timeless, straps in green and orange, which represent the pandas’ favorite bamboo leaves and carrots, also offer a unique way to express the wearer’s mood and style. The wearers may freely mix and match the contrasting black and white or green and orange alligator straps for a bold and chic look.

Memorigin Jade Tourbillon Watch – In Association with Emperor Jade Limited

In 2014, Memorigin, in association with Emperor Jade Limited, the top brand specializing in the jade, created a jade-feature tourbillon watch.

Once, design director and famous jade collector, Mrs. Christy Tung, JP, and the experienced wood engraving antique collector and founder of Memorigin, Mr. Shum Mak Ling, met each other that aligned to the same value – enhancing the fusion of the Chinese and western culture. Through the essence of the western culture – tourbillon watch, the beauty of the oriental jade culture is perfectly expressed.

It is not an easy task to present the jade on the tourbillon timepiece. The source and the cutting of the jade are the critical points. Regarding the thickness control, “too thick” or “too thin” will affect the dimensions. With a perfect balance, the silky fibrous texture of jade can only be shown. On the other hand, a little error on these processes will ruin everything.

Besides the difficulty of sourcing of Jade, many factors are needed to take into consideration after polishing like the moist texture, i.e. the sense of the transparency and the smoothness of the jade’s colour. As talked before, the thickness of the jade will easily affect everything. The whole project team strictly controls the entire stream of procedures beginning from sourcing, cutting, to polishing.

Every piece of the jade will be cut into a perfect ratio. By embedding a block of jade at the center, the stream of natural green light is refracted. On the dial, a square jade is used for the indexes which are separated by several square diamonds. The whole picture is presented in simply beauty.

The Memorigin Jade tourbillon watch has two styles, one for gentlemen and one for ladies which are empowered by 40 hours and 60 hours respectively. Both two styles acquired a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour. Moreover, they can be paired up as a Lover Series. The Memorigin’s trademark was engraved on the balance wheel of the tourbillon. Gold, diamond, jade and tourbillon: these four high-valued elements merge together to form this masterpiece.

Memorigin ‘The Time Machine’ Tourbillon Watch, Designed by Mark Lui

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.

Memorigin ‘The Time Machine’ Tourbillon Watch, Designed by Mark Lui

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.

KuTour powered by Memorigin: Typhoon and Tweed Tourbillon Watches (First Collaboration between Ms. Priscilla Ku and Memorigin)

Hong Kong actress – Ms. Priscilla Ku, a GIA jewelry appraiser and designer, has been enthusiastic on the jewelry design for many years. She aims to merge her fashion sense with the traditional jewelry design. The fashionable appearance and magnificent function are penetrated successfully in her designs. Furthermore, she has designed an extraordinary phase on her artworks that accessory can be divided and assembled to feature with different apparels which enhances the utility and freshness of the jewelry.

Recently, Ms. Priscilla Ku has worked with a Hong Kong tourbillon brand – Memorigin for creating her own brand – KuTour. Two separate tourbillon series, Typhoon and Tweed, are launched under the timeless effort of Memorigin and Ms. Priscilla Ku.

Typhoon is a tourbillon watch based on the satellite image of a typhoon passing through China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. On the dial, the curve lines represent the isobars of the satellite image. With diamonds in different colours encircled, they form the continental and ocean alike. In the middle, it is the location of Hong Kong. The typhoon is transformed into rotating tourbillon.

Besides, the harmony among China, Hong Kong and Taiwan is the extraordinary blessing from the watch design. By using different diamonds with different colours, the details and shining gems enriched everyone’s eyesight. If you wear it in a grand occasion, you must be grabbing all the attention from everyone. Even wearing in the casual apparel, senses of fashion and elegance will be expressed.

For another collection, Tweed, the design inspiration comes from the checked woolen cloth pattern with a simple colour tone. In order to form the interweave effect of the woolen cloth perfectly, different kind of gems were assembled like the black gems, sapphire, diamonds and grey diamonds.

Thus, the jewelry workers spent unlimited working hours on the cutting process to imitate the sophisticated pattern of the woolen cloth. Apart from the special design on the appearance, a deep inspiration about life is implied. She aims to express the true meaning of harmony.

Just like the pattern of the fabric, the circular outlook with rectangular inner design implies the concept of Chinese proverbs “following the rule and act wisely”.

MONTROUGE by Memorigin Bruce Lee Club Series Tourbillon Watch

In 2012, Memorigin created a special edition tourbillon watch as a tribute to Bruce Lee in association with Hong Kong based Bruce Lee Club.

Bruce Lee, a Hong Kong movie star who had a legendary story and his films deeply embedded in people’s minds. It is not exaggerating to describe him as “star of the century”. He has created a revolutionary influence on the world martial arts legacy and towards the society.

The Bruce Lee statue is located on the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui. The sparkling of the statue spots the beauty of Victoria Harbour. To commemorate the greatness of Bruce Lee, Memorigin, a Hong Kong tourbillon watch brand, and MONTROUGE, the high-end brand series under Memorigin, were invited by the Hong Kong Bruce Lee Club to cooperate together to launch a tourbillon watch which has strong Hong Kong spirit. For the primary design inspiration of the watch, it is based on the Bruce Lee statue. The momentum of the statue is engraving on the dial which is made by the 18-karat gold.

Memorigin is a brand that is established by top designers and watch collectors in Hong Kong. All the design inspirations are from the unique Hong Kong style – the merge of Chinese and Western cultural elements. Especially, Memorigin is proud of publicizing the Hong Kong spirit that let the World know about the tourbillon watch from Hong Kong. Besides, MONTROUGE is a brand under Memorigin that specializes in coordinating the projects with all celebrities and the groups.

On the other hand, this year is the 7th year anniversary of establishment of Bruce Lee statue. To tribute the contribution of Bruce Lee, 3 parties, Memorigin, MONTROUGE and Bruce Lee Club, coordinated in a project that launched a tourbillon watch for limited edition. For promoting the moral of Kung Fu and philosophy of Jeet Kune Do, the Bruce Lee club aims to lead the teenagers to know more about this legendary celebrity.

As Memorigin is a brand that appreciates the Hong Kong spirit, it is extremely perfect to use Bruce Lee, an icon of Hong Kong, as the design inspiration of the tourbillon watch. For this project, 3 parties joint together to present a masterpiece to all Hongkongers and the fans of Bruce Lee in the World. Through the Bruce Lee Club Series, you can always memorize the greatness of Bruce Lee.

The craftsmanship of the Bruce Lee Series represents the difficulty and complexity of the art. The muscle of the 18-Karat Bruce Lee sculpture is clearly engraved on the dial. The real-like sliver color coated sculpture of Vitoria Harbour view is an icing of the cake to the whole design. Thus, the time spending on manufacturing this tourbillon watch is longer because of the extremely high difficulty. This tourbillon watch will only be launched in limited quantity. Each set of Bruce Lee Series is assembled with a certificate which is authorized by the Bruce Lee Club. It must be the best present of all watch collectors.

For the design style, the main tone of Bruce Lee Series is in black colour. Also, the watch case and tourbillon movement are coated with black PVD.
