Stellar Series - Imperial
Posted by Memorigin on
Curiosity drives human to strive for seeking the truth. Once upon a time, there is a similar idea appearing in East and West debating the shape of the planet. Parts of the people believe that it is sphere and others believe it is a cube. Up until now, all the fact is clear by proofing of science. In Chinese culture, this philosophy of China – round shaped sky and flat ground drives different philosophies coming across, enhancing the civilization.
Every year, Memorigin aims to develop an innovative idea for the watch design to break the traditional appearance of tourbillon watch. By spending a long time for preparation, the engineer, designer, production department and, the technique and the equipment support from the Memorigin Tourbillon R&D Center jointly create a special sapphire glass only for this series – Stellar Series – Imperial to optimize the stunning effect of the rotating tourbillon and parts while visualizing through the sapphire glass from different angles. To look deeply, a highlight area is hidden in the tourbillon and part that a symbol of dragon is engraved. The dragon seems to be flying while the tourbillon rotated featuring the phoenix symbol on the dial. This is the area that Memorigin designer leaves for all watch collectors to discover the Chinese culture.
The form of sapphire glass is not easy to be transformed or cut. As this reason, Memorigin spend a long period to cut a one-piece and curved sapphire glass to finish this challenging task. The production time is above expectation. By consuming and damaging over hundred pieces of cutter, this challenge is finally completed.
In Chinese culture, “round” implies moving and “square” implies science clam. The together of “round” and “square” means the harmony. The design of the watch is applied with the idea of harmony. A 18K solid gold square boarder links 4 elements on the dial together with the flying tourbillon displayed 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, projecting the merge of philosophy of China – round shaped sky and flat ground and Western World view.
For more attention, Memorigin specially invented an automatic tourbillon movement for this Stellar Series; it provides 40 hours of power reserve, with frequency of 28,800 Oscillation/ Hour. The flying tourbillion at 3 o’clock position, engraved with Memorigin’s logo on the tourbillon. Without affecting the stability of the tourbillon working, this unique feature differentiates the Memorigin’s tourbillon watch from the others in the market. It remains a remarkable tourbillon history of Hong Kong.
