The Midnight Tourbillon GMT Limited Edition Geneva timepiece, crafted in 18K rose gold, shows both the mastery of classical watchmaking art and the contemporary vision that define fine watchmaking at Harry Winston.
The 45 mm diameter case incorporates the brand’s iconic arches, a subtle reminder of the neoclassical vault dominating the façade of the Harry Winston salon in New York City. With its excentered displays of hours and minutes and its deep, elegant tones, the dynamic dial is truly a sculptural expression of the movement. It places the tourbillon in the foreground, in a multi-level composition of overlapping circles and contrasting finishes that draw the eye into the heart of the timepiece. A seconds hand mounted on the central axis of the tourbillon rotates, as the tourbillon does, once every minute. The time zone to which the local time display is set, is shown by a pointer indicating the reference city, revealed in an aperture at the top of the dial.
The combination of a tourbillon with a dual time zone function makes this timepiece extremely useful, while offering the wearer a contemporary design that makes it uniquely Harry Winston. Equipped with a self-winding movement composed of 550 parts, finished to the highest standards of haute horlogerie, hand-chamfered with vertical Côtes de Genève and black ruthenium treatment, it features a power-reserve of 110 hours and is available in a limited edition of 5 pieces worldwide.
