Superman – It is a name that you must know before. In the American comics, he represents the classic superhero. To tie in the movie, <Man of Steel> the promotional activities, Memorigin cooperated with Warner Bros. Consumer Products again. A limited-edition tourbillon watch has been launched with the movie releasing.
About the design inspiration of the watch, Memorigin merges the innovative idea of the film into the watch design. Like the redesigned Superman in the film, Memorigin aims to present a tourbillon watch that is different from the existing series. Thus, a rectangle shaped case is used instead of the normal round shaped case. It gives a visual excitement to everyone. The S-shaped logo merges with the pattern of Jor-El (Superman’s father)’s armor which form the major design of the skeleton as the watch dial. With using the new plating technology, the contrast of the texture on the movement’s skeleton is significant. Designer deliberately hides two villains’ logo on the two bottom corners separately. It leaves a kind of playful element on the watch. Besides, the watch followed the colour setting of the superman in the film. On the dial, the deep red ruby at 12 o’clock position makes a great contrast to the rest 11 pieces of the natural deep blue sapphire.
