Memorigin Saint Seiy Sagittarius Tourbillon Limited Edition

In December 1985, the Japanese manga series Saint Seiya’s comics created a huge popularity in Japan upon their release. In 1986, the animation was launched that attracted the fans from all over the world. In the story, the main character – “Seiya” fights and grows with his teammates that tackles all the obstacles and never give up until igniting the last Kosumo (energy).

In 2016, the establishment of “Saint Seiya” stepped into the 30th anniversary. Mr. Masami Kurumada, the author of the comic, held serious of exhibitions and eventually he curated the exhibition of “Saint Seiya” in Hong Kong Times Square showcasing the 250 Saint Seiya figures, large sets, life-sized constellation shapes of sacred armor, kicking off the first anniversary ceremony for “Saint Seiya”.

In order to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of “Saint Seiya”, Memorigin, Art Vantage and Bandai Namco Asia jointly launched a tourbillon watch featuring the “Saint Seiya” in limited edition - Saint Seiya Series–Sagittarius.
After extensive R&D spanning the globe, Memorigin presented the Saint Seiya Series–Sagittarius tourbillon watch. 3 parties prepared long time to this cooperation; by coordinating with the engineer, designer and production department and assisted by the technique and the equipment support from the Memorigin Tourbillon R&D Center, the Hong Kong based luxury watch specialist realised this latest model.
 The image of “Sagittarius” is carved on the dial to present a metallic sensation, merging the high-end timepiece, fine engraving and collective memory together. The fine details and lines on the “Kurosu” of Sagittarius (amour) are perfectly projected on the dial with features of galaxy and palace surrounding as decoration. Rubies and sapphires are embedded on the dial as the indexes on the watch which seems to visualize the concept of Zodiacs in the “Saint Seiya”, theming the ancient Greek mythology.
In comic, the image of “Seiya” must be the main highlight. However, you must miss out “Athena” (called Saori in the comic). Holding Goddess of Victoryscepter, “Athena” leads the Saints to compete with the devils who created the sample of “Goddess of Lady”. While the designers drafting the design of the watch, they also noticed the place of “Athena” in everyone’s heart.
In order to focus the heavy position of “Athena”, designers seal an implicit image of the Athena’s scepter embossment on the 9 o’clock position on the dial for featuring the power reserve indictor, matching the heroic phase of Athena endowing the Saints with power. On the design, the production process consumes full energy of the team. The production of the movement must not be sloppy. Under several times of tuning, scaling and the physical testing, spending 77-step polishing procedure, 6-month production and 18 different materials, a tourbillon watch, Saint Seiya Series–Sagittarius was finalized. Apart from a power reserve of up to 40 hours, it also features a flying tourbillon with 193 pieces of subassembly module and 27 jewels, bringing out this masterpiece in the field of comic – “Saint Seiya”.
