Memorigin Jade Tourbillon Watch

In 2014, Memorigin, in association with Emperor Jade Limited, the top brand specializing in the jade, created a jade-feature tourbillon watch.

Once, design director and famous jade collector, Mrs. Christy Tung, JP, and the experienced wood engraving antique collector and founder of Memorigin, Mr. Shum Mak Ling, met each other that aligned to the same value – enhancing the fusion of the Chinese and western culture. Through the essence of the western culture - tourbillon watch, the beauty of the oriental jade culture is perfectly expressed.

It is not an easy task to present the jade on the tourbillon timepiece. The source and the cutting of the jade are the critical points. Regarding the thickness control, “too thick” or “too thin” will affect the dimensions. With a perfect balance, the silky fibrous texture of jade can only be shown. On the other hand, a little error on these processes will ruin everything.
Besides the difficulty of sourcing of Jade, many factors are needed to take into consideration after polishing like the moist texture, i.e. the sense of the transparency and the smoothness of the jade’s colour. As talked before, the thickness of the jade will easily affect everything. The whole project team strictly controls the entire stream of procedures beginning from sourcing, cutting, to polishing.

Every piece of the jade will be cut into a perfect ratio. By embedding a block of jade at the center, the stream of natural green light is refracted. On the dial, a square jade is used for the indexes which are separated by several square diamonds. The whole picture is presented in simply beauty.

The Memorigin Jade tourbillon watch has two styles, one for gentlemen and one for ladies which are empowered by 40 hours and 60 hours respectively. Both two styles acquired a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour. Moreover, they can be paired up as a Lover Series. The Memorigin’s trademark was engraved on the balance wheel of the tourbillon. Gold, diamond, jade and tourbillon: these four high-valued elements merge together to form this masterpiece.
