The annual Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair 2022 was successfully staged on 7-11 September at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Memorigin received much support from watch enthusiasts and trade visitors, including the Founder & CEO of Prince Jewellery and Watch Company Dr. Jimmy Tang Kui Ming, Under Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Dr. Bernard Chan, Legislative Councilor Mr. Peter Shiu Ka-fai, and Director General of Trade and Industry Ms. Maggie Wong etc. On this special occasion, the brand unveiled an impressive array of tourbillon watches, namely Genesis Series and Twilight, to surprise watch lovers.
Twilight is the brand’s first tourbillon timepiece that integrates enamel and stainless steel. The design comes from the inspiration of the Sun’s gradual appearance on the horizon when it rises. A white enamel sub-dial sits on the upper part of the metallic skeleton main dial. It partly covers the day & night indicator at the three o’clock position and the GMT display on the left. The hands of the latter rotate across the skeleton dial and the enamel dial, which further highlights the contrast and enhances the fascinating visuals of the mechanical watch. The enamel dial is in a crescent shape so that its radian matches perfectly with the tourbillon at the bottom. The thin Roman numeral hour markers add a sense of elegance to the simple white dial, turning it into a versatile watch that will never go out of style.
The Genesis Series embodies the “Back to the Basic” theme and has three color options: forest green, ocean blue and earthy brown. The Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, refers to the creation of the world. The word “Genesis” is transliterated from Greek Γένεσις, meaning “origin”. Memorigin wishes to manifest its vision by naming the watch series “Genesis”. The brand will stick to its mission in the torrent of time and continue to create tourbillon watches that bring endless surprises to watch lovers.
It features a smoky dial with a sunburst pattern and a gradient color effect. Its signature fumé dial goes from the shade of forest green, ocean blue or earthy brown to near-black at the edges. As light reflects, the ever-shifting colors and the shadowy gradients are bringing the watch dial alive. With only the metallic dotted hour markers on the chapter ring, the watch has expressed modernistic simplicity at its best. It can be finished off with either a classic alligator strap or a suede leather strap. The gender-neutral design has made it perfect for anyone who wants a versatile timepiece that complements anything in their closet.
The watches are equipped with a manual-winding tourbillon movement which provides 40 hours of power reserve. The fascinating tourbillon at the six o’clock position oscillates 28,800 times per hour, producing an incredible visual effect.
