Memorigin Transformers Series Tourbillon Watch

In 2014, the Hong Kong tourbillon watch brand - Memorigin presented the Transformers Series – the first Transformers-themed tourbillon watch with Hasbro. One set with 2 different models in limited edition was launched.

Referring to the characters in the movie, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee respectively, Memorigin invited 3 talented designers to work on this project. Through unlimited improving and fine tuning, all the technical constraints are solved to realize this masterpiece. In order to match with the unique features in the movies, all elements including colour tuning, texture of the strap and the esthetics on the design are strictly controlled. Especially, the characterized colour setting of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee is fully expressed through the strap.
Designer sketched the outline of the Optimus prime on the dial. The sliver plated skeletal structure enriched the layers on the dial. Besides, there are total of 10 pieces of natural sapphire on the dial. The 2 sapphires act as the eyes of Optimus and rest 8 form the indexes on the dial. Under the sunshine, the texture of steel is excellently expressed.

At the 6 o’clock position, the tourbillon is located which create a great momentum for the watch. It seems like the heart of Optimus Prime. Especially, it is gorgeous that the characteristics of Optimus Prime can be found on the watch. The red threads on the navy blue strap accompany the stainless steel case creating a great contrast with the stylish case.
In the movie, Bumblebee is the character that is very energetic as if the ray of sunshine. To follow the setting in the movie, designer creates the entire design as a refreshing feeling with great contrast. By using the yellow and black colour, the sharp yellow strap captured everyone’s eyesight.

On the dial, there are 8 yellow diamonds as the indexes and 2 natural sapphires as the eyes of Bumblebee. The rotation of the tourbillon at the 6 o’clock position provides the energy to the Transformers that let it move.
