Harry Winston announced the new limited model, Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 9, which redefines the Tourbillon's complication.
The model, which is both technically and aesthetically pleasing enough to be considered a miniature piece of art, is limited to only 20 pieces.
The new model comes with a 46.5mm diameter and 20.8mm high case. Offered in 18K white or pink gold options, the case is equipped with scratch-resistant sapphire crystals on both sides and is water resistant to 30 meters / 3 bars. The three arches that cover and encircle the crown on Histoire de Tourbillon 9 - was inspired by the entrance of Harry Winston's Fifth Avenue Salon in New York City.
It has a skeletonized dial with hand beveling. The hour and minute hands circle directly above the movement and point to two zones calibrated with Arabic numerals. The power-reserve indicator at 8 o'clock displays a field and a two-part hand that share a distinctly three-dimensional nature.
The model is powered by the brand’s manufacture movement Caliber HW4504 with 58 jewels, 21,600 vph and a power reserve of 50 hours. It is comprised of 408 parts, of which 117 are in the tourbillon. The HW4504 caliber was designed exclusively for Histoire de Tourbillon 9 offering a Triaxial Tourbillon featuring three carriages with their exclusive full rotation times.
It comes on a black Mississippiensis alligator leather strap with 18kt rose gold or platinum thread. Matching gold Ardillon buckle.
