AGELOCER·2021 Contemporary Good Design Award-winning Works Display:
AGELOCER · Astronomer Series
The creation inspiration of the Astronomer series comes from the sun, moon and stars, and uses the moon phase as a symbol to record time. Breaking the traditional small window blocking moon phase design, it created the first 28.5mm large immersive moon phase window, using 3D nano-metal printing technology to make 3D three-dimensional carved moon phases, and platinum-plating technology to make the lunar landform color more brilliant, combining modern technology with traditional The function is a new upgrade. This series of watches represents AGELOCER’s spirit of respecting tradition but not being restrained, and interpreting the exploration of astronomy in a new mechanical form.
AGELOCER · Big Bang Series
The design inspiration of the Big Bang series watch comes from racing elements. The roaring engine in the rally car, the instrument panel that records the gallop, the staggered track, and the speeding wheels. The designer subtly arranges the elements of speed in the dial space. Abandoning the flat and single design of traditional watches, the industry’s first multi-level mechanical dial is realized with rigorous technology, and 4 layers of complex mechanical hollow structures are accommodated in an extremely thin 2.4mm space. The first three-pin separate design redefines the way the watch travels! The Big Bang series is born for original design and precision machinery. It explores the brave and fearless racing spirit with mechanical timepieces, creates a new era of mechanical watch wearing experience, and meets the needs of consumers in the new era to express their individuality.
AGELOCER · Tourbillon Series
On the basis of inheriting the watchmaking essence of the classic tourbillon, the AGELOCER tourbillon series watch takes the architectural aesthetics as the design origin, and builds a city of suspended machinery between the wrists with the light-feathered suspension heart and mechanical bones. It adopts the ultimate hollowing process with a more design sense to fully display the movement structure, breaking the complicated tradition of classical machinery and creating a light visual beauty. The wearer can fully peep the flying tourbillon without top bracket flying in the air, reinterpreting the new generation of tourbillon in a modern design language.
The 2021 Contemporary Good Design Award-winning exhibition will be displayed at the Red Dot Design Museum, Xiamen, China. The exhibition will last until April 3, 2022. The exhibition showcases excellent designs from different aspects of contemporary society from 50 categories and perspectives, allowing visitors to better understand the award-winning works and the latest consumption trends, and see good contemporary designs.
