“You only live once” is the motto of the Founding Chairman & CEO of NPG Agency, Dato’ Norman Pang, also known as the "King of Asian Life Insurance". He demonstrated his tenacity through the WEIN Tourbillon, which he co-designed with Hong Kong tourbillon maker Memorigin. The timepiece is limited to 68 pieces worldwide.
Norman was heavily in debt due to investment failures, and he later joined the life insurance industry. The extraordinary perseverance he showed not only enabled him to pay off the debts but also to found the NPG team. The WEIN Tourbillon tailor-made for Norman is inspired by the flying eagle, which symbolizes his devotion and valiance. “Goals aren't meant to be achieved, but to be exceeded. Challenges are my favorite, and success isn't an end in itself. I believe that everyone has unlimited potential and we should all go beyond our goals,” said Norman.
With a barrel-shaped stainless-steel watch case, the watch features a blue tourbillon movement and some other blue components, including the hands, the indices, and the strap. It is equipped with a manual-winding tourbillon movement which consists of 155 pieces of subassembly modules and 18 jewels. The 40 hours of power reserve and a vibration frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour provide a stable and accurate time-telling function. The tourbillon rotating at six o'clock serves as a reminder that we only have one life to live. Creating miracles begins with hard work.
