Tiger is reigning supreme in 2022. As part of its efforts to promote Chinese culture, the Hong Kong tourbillon watch brand Memorigin is releasing the Zodiac Series – Tiger tourbillon watch to celebrate the Year of Tiger. Artisans have showcased the exquisite craftsmanship by embossing the tiger vividly on a 43mm-dial. Symbolizing fearlessness, glory, auspiciousness, and peace, the animal on your wrist is expected to bring good fortune in a new year.
On the skeleton dial, there is a metal relief of a strong and mighty tiger heading back down. A tiger that goes down the hill implies someone who has finished their studies and is returning home with success or prosperity. Pine trees representing longevity and evergreen are carved on the background. They are also money trees as copper coins are hung thereon. The tourbillon movement at the 6 o’clock position is adorned with auspicious clouds pattern, gracefully attracting luck and happiness.
The watch case is available in two colors: rose gold and silver. Rubies and sapphires are embedded on the two watches respectively as time indices. The periphery of the dial is designed in auspicious fret pattern, exuding a sense of classical beauty. The brand has selected a tourbillon movement which vibrates in a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour for this series and has 40-hour power reserve. The mascot and blessings will always be with you.
