In traditional Chinese culture, the fifth day of the Lunar New Year is the birthday of the Five Gods of Wealth. People usually worship the God of Wealth and see the God of Poverty out to wish for a prosperous new year. The Hong Kong tourbillon brand Memorigin has always been committed to promoting traditional Chinese culture through watches. In 2016, the brand and the artist Louis Fan Siu-wong, who also loves Chinese culture, collaborated to create the Zodiac Series – Monkey special edition tourbillon. This year, they teamed up again to launch the God of Wealth tourbillon, bringing blessings to everyone’s hands.
The God of Wealth tourbillon has an elegant rose-gold-plated watch case. The golden dial features a metal relief sculpture of the God of Wealth. With the brand’s exquisite carving craftsmanship, details like the plump figure and the kind face of the God of Wealth are meticulously depicted. It extends to his clothing as well. The huge ingot he is holding implies the attraction of wealth.
The watch has a hollow interior which allows the rotating tourbillon to be viewed and symbolizes that wealth is pouring in. The God of Wealth is surrounded by gold ingots and gold coins, wishing everyone abundance and prosperity in the coming year.
The periphery of the dial is designed in an auspicious fret pattern, which symbolizes a wish for longevity and luck. The watch style is further elevated by the nine ruby indices. The timepiece is equipped with a manual-winding tourbillon movement that consists of 155 pieces of subassembly module and 18 jewels. The back of the watch is embedded with the Chinese word “皇” (Wong) and the English letters “FJ” to represent Louis Fan’s company. The tourbillon operates a vibration frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour and provides 40 hours of power reserve. Good luck comes your way with this accessory.
