Golf is often considered as a “pastime for Tycoons”, and there are many top golfers in western countries. Yet, if you take a closer look, you will find that there is usually a Hong Kong representative inthe top ranks of many world-class golf tournaments, and that is Chan Tsz-ching Tiffany, Hong Kong’s leading female golfer. Tiffany has been training in golf since 6 years old. Unlike many golfers, she did not start off by being a member of a golf club. Instead, her dedications and efforts paved her way from the local public driving range in Tuen Mun to the World Championship. She achieved impressive results in many professional tournaments and even entered the Olympics to represent Hong Kong at very young ages. She is a local golf legend in Hong Kong. Memorigin, also a local legend as a Hong Kong tourbillon brand, has invited Tiffany to collaborate in designing a golf-themed watch for the golf enthusiasts.
Memorigin X Golf Series is mainly in white, and the design concept is based on the golf balls with many pits on the surface. A red tee is engraved at 10 o’clock position, making the “0” on which resembles a golf ball. It echoes the theme and adds a highlight to the white dial. The tourbillon at 6 o’clock rotates and injects energy into the watch. It reminds wearers of a golf ball spinning in the air. The word “HONG KONG MADE” is engraved below the tourbillon, meaning that Tiffany Chan is a Hong Kong athlete and it is a Hong Kong brand’s watch. As Tiffany likes simplicity, the watch is equipped with a stainless steel case and a brown alligator strap so that the simple and elegant design features are more visible.
A major feature of the functions is that the watch has the big-date indication, in which two ring wheels rotate to change the date number displayed in the double windows. There is a day-and-night indicator at 3 o’clock position and a GMT dual-time display indicator at 9 o’clock position. The white hand in the latter represents daytime and the black hand represents nighttime. Memorigin specially selected an automatic-winding tourbillon movement for this series. It also includes a manual winding device so that wearers can enjoy the fun of manual winding. Even if it is not wound, the watch will still be able to operate normally for 40 hours, avoiding the inconvenience of frequently adjusting the time. Memorigin’s in-house mechanical movements have excellent precision and stability. With a good design and practicality, the watch will always be in its best condition like professional golfers.
