Tourbillon Movement

Presented before you, is one of the most engaging movements in watchmaking history; the tourbillon, a mechanical marvel that enthusiasts around the world are eager to acquire and speak of highly.

A revelation when it was first developed, not only for the visual impact that a rotating tourbillon mechanism can have, but also for the sheer genius of its mechanical ingenuity that allowed for more accurate timekeeping. The rotating tourbillon counteracting the unfavorable gravitational forces of the earth that normally affects other mechanical watches.

Tourbillon Movement

Although this timepiece is prestige, the rugged elements are included, that is main point to differentiate it from the tourbillon watch in the market. With coordinating with Memorigin, Mr. Mark Lui was inspired by the philosophy of the brand - a fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern forward thinking. Especially, he is the person that as tourbillon watch is a delicate machine, it will be a great achievement to pursuit the accuracy by using the tradition mechanical engineering. As these inspirations came up in his head, he develops a concept to let the elements of “Steam-punk” inject in the watch design.

Every machine was well-designed - strong function and gorgeous appearance creating this golden era. This masterpiece – “The Time Machine”, applied this concept behind; Not only is it for the time reading, but it is also a masterpiece with rich design concepts.
