Description

 
Asynchronous follow movement developed by CIGA Design. Designer—Jianmin Zhang took advantage of flying gears speed ratio’s differentia to invent a brand new movement (3 different patents), whom made a breakthrough of hundreds of years traditional horologe that indicated time by hour, minutes and seconds hands. The movement implemented time is represented by a hand’s two ends: wider end indicates hour and narrow end indicates minutes. The circle of dial indicating minutes had been fixed as the circle of dial indicating hour is movable.
 
The circle of dial indicates hour moves following with the hand; it rotates 330 degree while the hand rotates 360 degree. The designer chosen the mascot figure of east culture—Dragon as the time representation. With the art skill engraving of dragon to make the time is indicated by dragon paws: front paw indicates hour, back paw indicates minutes. The circle of dial indicates minutes is fixed, the circle of dial indicates hour rotates following with dragon. When dragon rotates 360 degree, the circle of dial indicates hour rotates 330 degree.
 
Simplify design concept combined with art engraving made the dragon rotates on the dial while time passing by, meanwhile, it also means art traveling with time and forming a dynamic identity art. This combination can purify and vivid art so as to reach the fusion of art engraving and time indication.
