Harry Winston unveiled its new model that combines one of the most technically challenging complications – tourbillon with the practicality of the GMT function. The new Ocean Tourbillon GMT Watch comes with the redesigned dial and it features a modern and masculine design which will appeal every modern man.
The dial of the new Harry Winston timepiece boasts a dynamic all-black color scheme, in which the dual time zone counter and the tourbillon are positioned in overlapping circles, leading the eye around the dial in a composition of precisely arranged elements.
This multi-level architecture places the tourbillon in the foreground at the 6 o’ clock position where its hypnotic rotation catches the viewer’s eye instantly. A seconds hand is mounted on the central axis of the tourbillon.
The main time counter is located at the 2 o’ clock position. It comprises Arabic numerals and hour and minute hands. An aperture that shows the chosen city for the second time zone is set on the opposite side, at the 11 o’ clock position. When you select a second time zone, the applicable time is shown on the smaller, second counter which is situated at the 9 o’ clock position. Finally, a day/night indication for the second time zone completes the wealth of information.
Harry Winston Ocean Tourbillon GMT Watch is powered by the in-house manufactured mechanical movement that consists of 550 components. Each part is finished to the highest standards of haute horlogerie, hand chamfered with vertical Côtes de Genève and black ruthenium treatment. The self-winding mechanism provides amazing 110 hours of power reserve when fully charged.
The new Harry Winston is housed either in 18-karat white gold or in 18-karat rose gold case. Its round polished case measures 45mm in diameter and 15mm in thickness. The water resistance of the new Ocean Tourbillon GMT is assured down to 100 meters (about 330 feet).
The watch is produced in a very limited edition of 100 pieces around the world (50 pieces in white and 50 pieces in rose gold). A hand-sewn black matte alligator leather strap, with 18-karat rose/white gold ardillon buckle keeps the watch secured to the wrist and completes this lavish timepiece.
