In Chinese history, the image of snake was once regarded as “small dragon”. The unexplained trace of snake leaves a mysterious impression to us. Although the mystery embraces the image of snake, it also represents the essence of Chinese culture. For example, it can be signified as luck, longevity and fortune. In the provinces of Fujian and Minan areas, the locals will treat snake as an ancestor of human. When a snake appeared in a house, people believed that their ancestors were inspecting the safety of their descendants or bringing benisons to that family.
In 2013 Chinese New Year, by countless time and efforts Memorigin sincerely presents its masterpiece – “Zodiac Series – Snake”. Similar to the previous Zodiac Series – Dragon, the indexes on the dial are presented by the sparkling diamonds. Surrounding with rose gold plated Greek Key, the imperial charisma is demonstrated.
A snake in Arabic number “8” shape was designed as the background of the dial. The bamboos skeleton was engraved in fine craftsmanship on the movement. The shape of the Arabic number “8” of the snake also provides an auspicious value to watch owners such as fortune and luck by Chinese culture.
Designer has chosen a picture of gentle green snake dancing in early spring which brings an energetic and a harmonious atmosphere instead of a fierce or seductive image.
Memorigin used to assemble its watch collections with the best alligator strap. In this time, a special designed snakeskin strap was prepared for the Zodiac Series – Snake. Every single snakeskin has unique pattern. The gorgeous pattern defines the uniqueness of the watch. Besides, it is in limited edition that it is absolutely invaluable to every watch and art lovers as lifetime collection.
