The amazing stories that Harry Winston tells though its Histoire de Tourbillon line are always intricate and captivating. The latest tale comes in the unique form of the new Histoire de Tourbillon 6 timepiece, which is one of the most complicated creations by HW.
The line is not for subtlety lovers, as every single piece in it is large, bold and obvious, yet never gaudy. Number 6 fits the bill perfectly, having a massive white gold case that measures 55mm by 49mm and is 21.8mm thick (2.1 in by 1.9 in by 0.85 in). The shape is atypical, though it starts from a basic cushion design, because it features two rounded additions on the left side, each one housing a different complication.
There are two distinct hour indicators on the watch, each one working independently from the other. Another remarkable feature is the intricate karussel, situated at the 1 o’clock position. Once its designated pusher is pressed, it starts running and performs a full rotation every 30 seconds. Also very eye catching is the triple-axis tourbillon that sits snugly under an arched bridge and rounded sapphire crystal at the 7 o’clock position.
The stunning luxury timepiece is obviously a limited edition creation, Harry Winston manufacturing only 20 units. Expensive watch collectors will be spending around $600,000 for one example.
