Dragon is legendary creature which symbolizes potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck. With this, the Emperor of China usually uses the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power. With this, Chinese are often being referred to “The descendant of the dragon”.
In celebration of the year of Dragon, Memorigin grandly presents the first of its Zodiac Series - Dragon Tourbillon. The dragon tourbillon features exquisite embossment on the dial. This design was inspired by ancient wood carving ornament in the Qing Dynasty called “The fish of dragon”. The stunning face of the Dragon tourbillon is highlighted by the carving of the story of “The fish of dragon”; The tourbillon at 6 o’clock position resembles a pearl, rotates rhythmically under the dragon talons. The dial elegantly surrounds with rose gold plated Chinese style border, embedded with 12 diamonds as the index.
“The fish of dragon” embossment on the Zodiac Series-Dragon has a moral of “Perseverance brings success”. It also has the Chinese “Fung Shui” metaphysics elements with an auspicious blessing to the year of dragon 2012. All in all, Memorigin dragon tourbillon watches are a masterpiece of art and the best collectable for a watch enthusiast to enjoy.
Overall, with excellent craftsmanship, Tourbillon movement, 250 unit limited and special edition, wooden box (with “the fish of dragon” wood carving and limited quantity) and 3 types of features (stainless steel, gold and PVC case), the price is reasonable. There is no reason to reject their sincerity of making Tourbillon watch.
