Video Interview: Bell & Ross Introduces New Watches At Baselworld 2013
Don't let me get off on the wrong foot by making this review sound like I am talking about a Chinese copy of something European. That isn't exactly the case here. My opening point was however to suggest that in the case of getting a tourbillon, there are fair offerings from Chinese brands that are all less expensive than their European counterparts. Are they analog watches or replicas? No. They are merely Chinese expressions of the same complications, and the best of them have some Asian flair. This is a review of the Memorigin Military Tourbillon, and I have to admit that after several months of wearing it off and on, I've grown quite attached to it.
The P.9100/R is no conventional chronograph movement, offering dual barrels supporting 72 hours of power reserve alongside a column wheel chronograph with a vertical clutch. Comprised of 328 pieces with 37 jewels, the P.9100/R even incorporates a KIF Parechoc anti-shock system. This movement is currently only used in the Regatta 3 Days and, along with the practical chronograph display, also features a flyback chronograph and a regatta countdown feature that is as cool as any I've ever seen.
