Description

Jade is one of the most typical precious stones from the East. In the thousands of years of history of oriental culture, jade played an important role. Jade represents traditional eastern virtues like introverted, subtle, and gentle. Unfortunately, nowadays jade is far away from our daily life, it is thought to be an old material, and represents an old lifestyle. But in fact, there is no old material, there is only old form.

We design jade with modern, simple geometric shapes, creating a design that not only shows the unique beauty of the natural material of jade but also fully meets the aesthetic needs of modern life.

Using the most stable triangular structure in physics, we built an ultra-stable hollow skeleton with four triangles, and we innovatively transformed a movement into a large gear shape with 60 teeth, representing 60 minutes. We connect this gear-like movement with the pure geometric jade with an original transparent suspension structure. When you see a very beautiful green jade with a skeleton movement suspended in the middle, you will have an extraordinary and unique visual experience.

In day time, the green hour hand, minute hand and second hand echoes with the green jade. In the nighttime, it forms an awesome green luminous pattern.

The combination of concise geometric jade and precision movement not only presents the unique beauty of the natural material of jade but also sets off the beauty of sophisticated mechanical art. The pure jade case direct contact with the wearer. As the years go by, the jade will echo with the wearer. As the saying in oriental culture: You nourish the jade while the jade nourishes you.
