Hong Kong tourbillon brand Memorigin has always been dedicated to supporting local athletes. This time, Memorigin collaborates with Hong Kong's first world-ranked number one karate athlete (U21), Tang Yu Hin, to launch the Karate Spirit Tourbillon watch, themed around karate, to promote the sport of karate and the 'Hong Kong spirit'.

At just 21 years old, Yu Hin made history for the Hong Kong team by winning the first-ever Male Individual Kata (U21) gold medal at the 2021 Asian Youth Championships. He continued his winning streak by securing the Male Individual Kata gold medal at the 2023 World Combat Games, becoming the first Hong Kong karate athlete to achieve the top rank in the U21 Male Individual Kata world rankings. His future is limitless.

Yu Hin has infused his passion for karate, awareness, and pursuit of excellence into the design of this watch. The skeleton dial draws inspiration from the dynamic movements of karate athletes in combat. Adorned with rubies and sapphires, the hour markers at 3 and 9 o’clock represent the karate belt colors of the competing athletes. At 12 o’clock, a fist symbolizes the iconic karate technique "Seiken." The tourbillon window at 6 o’clock features a karate black belt motif, perfectly complementing the karate theme.

The sapphire crystal case back not only showcases the inscription 'Karate' but also reveals the intricate tourbillon movement. Memorigin also offers movement engraving services, allowing customers to personalize their tourbillon with names or unique phrases from their martial arts schools, thereby infusing each timepiece with a distinctive essence.

The watch is equipped with a tourbillon movement composed of 155 subassembly modules and 18 jewels, providing a 40-hour power reserve and operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Its stability and precision mirror the qualities of a karate athlete—precise technique and a steadfast mindset.
