Harry Winston Opus 10

in New Releases | Sunday, September 19. 2010

Harry Winston launched The Opus Series in 2001 each year since they have partnered with the industry’s best watch makers to create a new Opus that is both groundbreaking and beautiful. This year Harry Winston has partnered with watch engineer Jean-François Mojon and the collaboration brought about the OPUS 10. A timepiece inspired by planetary movements and the space-time continuum the watch uses shapes and the dimensionality of time through the synchronous rotation of circular motions.

The Opus 10 strays from tradition with its innovative system of rotating indicators mounted on a revolving frame. The revolving frame rotates in one direction while the dials of each indicator turn in the opposite direction, this ensures that the orientation remains constant in any position. The hand-wound mechanical movement includes indicators for hours, minutes, seconds, and secondary time-zone, all set on the individual satellite wheels which orbit around the central, solar wheel. The movement allows for a 72-hour power reserve.

The watch features a 46 millimeter case constructed from white gold and is designed without a bezel. The rounded sapphire crystal is attached directly to case. The case-back is marked with both Harry Winston's and watch engineer Jean-François Mojon's names. The reference 500/MMJFMWL.K is completed with a black alligator strap and an 18 carat white gold buckle. The Harry Winston Opus 10 is a limited edition of jut 100 pieces.
