Description 1842年,中國清朝末期,第一次鴉片戰爭剛完結,大清王朝逐漸走向末路。在江南有一官戶人家,感到國力日漸衰弱,擔心將來有一天子孫受累於亂世,特叮囑他的兒子,好好保存他唯一從京城帶回的一塊當時很值錢的袋錶,因為其手工非常精美,在必要時可去當鋪變換錢以備不時之需。就這樣,那塊袋錶就一代一代傳了下來。


進了屋內,他被那牆壁上,桌子上的中國古代雕刻工藝震攝住了,對那凝聚了五千年文化的藝術結晶讚歎不已。然後,他看到了家傳之寶---正是1842 年他祖先遺留下來的一個清朝中葉的古董袋錶。看到此錶精美的設計,他產生了一個念頭:他決心要在香港復興這種古老的工藝,再配合當今歐美的頂尖設計,創造出另一個品牌傳奇。那古董袋錶的故事告訴着他,最能紀念時間的東西,就是時間本身。而他也知道,鐘錶的最高工藝品就是陀飛輪。


When a Story Begins

In 1842, in the eyes of the Chinese, empress of the Qing dynasty was a weak link in the Royal family because of her inability to reverse the economic crisis induced after the first opium war and to protect the integrity of their territories from the invasion. Facing the increasingly unstable political situations and social upheaval, a family decided to move to southern China where most of cities were intact after the opium war. They brought with their personal belongings and a hand-made pocket watch designed by the best craftsman of its time. They brought the pocket watch because it might be traded for life in case they were short of money. The pocket watch was not sold and was kept with the family for generations.

A hundred years later, in a sun-drenched morning in a city of Jiang Nan area of southern China, a youth was walking towards his ancestral home – a place where his ancestors have lived for centuries. He was born in Hong Kong, a charismatic city with rapid economic growth and strong cultural diversification, and it was his first time visiting his ancestral home. He was overjoyed when he found the pocket watch, an antique that represents 200 years of fine craftsmanship and a unique everlasting memory for his family.

This pocket watch was a legacy of his ancestors in 1842. The first experience with the antiques in his ancestral home and the pocket watch were described by him as shocking. He was amazed by the architect of the antiques and the engineering of the pocket watch. The architecture was the wood carvings that reflect the finest craftsmanship with the Chinese history of 5000 years; the engineering was the mechanics of the pocket watch’s movement. Inspired by the fine architecture and precise engineering, he has an idea. He decided to re-create this very fine architecture and precise engineering in a modern context, by combining the concept of time, old Chinese wood carvings, and the European avant-garde design concepts into one single piece: The MEMORIGIN Tourbillon wrist watch.
