Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 2
Unveiled at this year's Baselworld in Switzerland, this flaunts a complicated mechanism that combines two concentric titanium carriages, the outer one gyrating in 120 seconds and the inner one in 40 seconds. This interplay of sub dials offers a multi-layered visual effect. Further enhancing readability, the day/night indications can be told apart by their colour as they turn orange during the day and blue at night. The circular grained hand-finished dials are set in a white gold case and are complemented by an understated black matte leather strap. With a power reserve of 20 hours and water resistance of up to 30 metres, this is haute horology at its best.
