The manufacture of Harry Winston presents the one-of-a-kind Ocean Dual Time Retrograde model designed to show support for the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy, and its efforts to raise money for the research into Muscular Dystrophy. This newcomer will be auctioned at the Only Watch charity event that will take place on 7 November 2015 in Geneve.
Harry Winston Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch is housed in an 18-karat white gold case with polished accents on the edges of the case, bezel, lugs and crown. The round case measures 44.2mm in diameter and 11.6mm in thickness.
The beating heart of the new Harry Winston watch is a Frederic Piguet base movement that oscillates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). The automatic mechanical movement is built on 32 jewels and it consists of 281 individual parts. The self-winding mechanism features flat balance spring in silicon, circular Côtes de Genève, circular graining, chamfered bridges and a white-gold skeletonized oscillating weight, along with lots of nice finishes. It is partially visible through the openworked dial, as well as from the rear through the sapphire crystal case back.
Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a beautiful dial that has an array of functions including an excentered hour/minute display at the 1 o’clock position, a day/night indicator at the 3 o’clock position, a calendar window at the 4 o’clock position and a Shuriken power aperture just above 6 o’ clock position, and a second time zone indicator with a retrograde 12-hour display which is situated between 6 and 10 o’ clock positions.
When you turn the watch upside down, there is a see-through case back engraved with inscription “Only Watch 2015 Unique Piece”. Remaining true to its heritage, the new Ocean Dual Time Retrograde model can submerge the Ocean up to 100 meters (about 330 feet).
Harry Winston Ocean Dual Time Retrograde for Only Watch 2015 is attached to a blue alligator leather and black rubber strap, ending with an Ardillon buckle made of 18-karat white gold. The band is also specifically designed for Only Watch charity event, to make the new Harry Winston watch to be one-of-a-kind piece worth of a world-class charity event.
Under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II, Honorary President of the Cercle de l’Horlogerie de Monaco, the Only Watch 2015 will present creations from 43 of the most prestigious watchmaking brands, each one of them creating a one-of-a-kind piece for this occasion.
