Being committed to promoting the traditional Chinese culture, Memorigin, the Hong Kong tourbillon brand, is launching the Zodiac Series – Ox tourbillon watch this year. Ox represents diligence and strength in Chinese traditions. As oxen used to be domesticated for agriculture and transportation, they have contributed much to human’s stability and prosperity.
A dense forest is engraved on the skeleton dial by Memorigin with its marvelous carving techniques. At the mountaintop stands a fierce ox enjoying a bird’s eye view. It implies a better career and good fortune in the lunar new year. The two sides of the tourbillon, which rotates at 6 o'clock position, are decorated with many gold ingots and gold coins, symbolizing fullness and wealth. The periphery of the dial is desgined in auspicious fret pattern and 12 gems are inlaid as the time indice, exuding a sense of classical beauty.
Memorigin specially chooses a tourbillon movement which vibrates in a frequency of 28,800 osciallations per hour for this series. It provides high accuracy and stability with the 40-hour power reserve. The watch case is available in two colors: rose-gold and silver, suitable for all types of watch lovers.
