The close relationship between racing cars and watches can be seen when both use sophisticated mechanics and components to operate. Yet the former one has to compete against time to create the fastest record, the latter one has to record and tell the time precisely. Memorigin, the Hong Kong tourbillon watch brand, combines the two into a watch with the elements of racing cars. It reminds you not to waste your time and always remember to challenge yourselves, just like in a time-based competition.
The dial of the GT series watch is made of carbon fiber which is used in manufacturing car accessories. The watch case in classical stainless-steel gives a tough feeling through the material. There are four small circular windows on the dial, the off-centered time indicator is placed at 12 o’clock position in contrast with the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
The day-and-night indicator is positioned at 3 o’clock while the dual time-zone indicator lies at 9 o’clock position. The surrounding red circles make them more eye-catching. Memorigin adds a layer of carbon fiber on the alligator strap with red stitches, matching with the red circles. The whole watch in the same color tone is stylish and classy. It is a perfect watch with high practicality.
