Memorigin cooperates with The Walt Disney Company again this year after the Avengers tourbillon project. This time Memorigin proudly presents its new crossover project, which is the collaboration with Lucasfilm, the famous entertainment company of science – fiction movie with millions of fans from all over the world. Also Memorigin invited Mr. Mark Lui, the famous designer and pop music composer to be the chief designer for this 200 limited edition of Star Wars Series – Captain Phasma tourbillon watch.
The Captain Phasma image is sketched by some simple lines on the dial, the black eyeshades are the highlights of the watch. The designer tries to bring about the classic Star Wars theme by using mix and match of the colours, red with black and also white with silver. 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. The “M” mark on the hexagonal crown is a signature of Mark Lui’s design; the rubber around the metal crown protects users not getting uncomfortable by winding the watch. The red and black leather just like a secret sign, if you are the Star Wars fans, you must be able to recognize it.
Memorigin works seriously on every crossover project, especially on the packaging. The Star Wars Series of course won’t be an exception. It uses a glossy white wooden box, “Stormtrooper!” is the first impression the box gives you. There is a Star Wars logo on the top, when you open it you can see there is the Star Wars theme - black, white and red tone, the red watch cushion is a special design for the watch, when you put the Star Wars Series – Captain Phasma tourbillon watch on the cushion, the watch will stand out because of the contrast. Last but not the least, there is a classic phrase for the Star Wars fans which is hidden on Mark Lui’s signature plate: MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.
Each Memorigin Star Wars Series – Captain Phasma tourbillon watch box set includes: one luxury Star Wars user manual, which maybe the only tourbillon watch user manual can make you read through it, a 3 year warranty card, and a Captain Phasma tourbillon watch certificate with Mark Lui’s autograph on it. With these items, how can you reject it?
