The latest edition to Harry Winston’s Ocean Collection stands out for it’s unique design.
The watchmaker employed a new and innovative mechanical movement where it incorporated both a tourbillion and a jumping hour. The movement utilized 330 components and took in excess of 1500 man-hours to develop.
In most watches the tourbillion is typically located on the back of the movement plate, however with the Harry Winston Ocean Tourbillion Jumping Hour it is craftily suspended from two hand-cut steel bridge and positioned between two panes of sapphire glass, giving the impression it is floating in space with no mechanical connection. The tourbillion is in actual face driven by a wheel cleverly concealed by the minute track that circles the outer edge of the dial.
The dial is executed in black sapphire and reveals the hour through an opening at the 12 o’clock position. Unlike many jumping hour watches, the timepiece’s minute hand (the red arrow) is creatively designed so the view of the hour window is never obstructed.
The Harry Winston Ocean Tourbillion Jumping Hour has a frequency of 4Hz and a power reserve of 110 hours. The watch is available in a case of 18-karat white or rose gold either with 58 baguette-cut diamonds or without. All are on an alligator strap.
