Magic may be something that you hate for loving it. The magical moment is always the most fascinating thing about magic. You get a lot of surprises and are obsessed with the performance, but you could never find the clues. Although a watch cannot be produced like pulling it out of a hat in a second, its craftmanship is by no means less inferior than magic. You may stare at the components in the tourbillon movement every day, but know nothing about how they operate. You may wonder why time can be shown in such a small case. This time, Memorigin, the Hong Kong tourbillon watch brand, collaborates with John Fung, the international award-winning magician. John uses a tourbillon watch with 80-hour power reserve and rotation at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour instead of his magic tools to make magic real in life. The John Fung Magic Tourbillon Series lets you play your magic wherever and whenever you are.
From designing to producing the watches, John takes a significant role in the planning stage so that the tourbillon series can blend into our lives well while being stylish and luxurious. Under the assistance of the young designer, Mr. Enoch Yan, Design Director of Memorigin, Mr. Jason Chan, and the craftsmen of Memorigin, the watches fully embrace the magic theme. The four suits of poker cards – club, spade, heart, and diamond surround the dial, leaving only the Roman number 12 and 6 to replace traditional numbers as the indices. The simple design matches well with the skeletal carvings on the dial, and the rose-gold color tone refines the appearance of the watch. The poker card is like the magic bringing wonders to the watch. To successfully integrate magic and watch craftsmanship, the calculations during production must be very precise and no flaws are allowed. Wearing the magic tourbillon turns you into a magician who can play the mind magic when the tourbillon movement operates.
The John Fung Magic Tourbillon Series includes a magic-tutorial CD in a limited quantity of 100 sets. His useful tips will surely help the beginners to master the tricks successfully. In the eyes of magicians, every detail in a watch can be a tool for magic performance, the magic in the CD will bring you joy and skills.
