Harry Winston celebrates 10 years of the Histoire de Tourbillon collection by way of a groundbreaking new timepiece, which puts four tourbillons in a single movement for the first time. Visible through the sapphire glass of a rectangular case, the four tourbillon and their adjacent cores are positioned in a perfectly symmetrical fashion. This resoundingly unique collection is available in three limited edition variants: 18k white gold, 18k rose gold, and a platinum alloy called Winstonium. The white gold and rose gold iterations are limited to ten units apiece, while the Winstonium model is limited to just one.
As you might expect, the Histoire de Tourbillon 10 movement gets downright complicated (no pun intended). Specifically, the HW4702 caliber has a total of 673 components spread out across the four corners of the avant-garde case. To watch the four tourbillons in action through the open-worked dial is to witness a virtually unprecedented tier of machination.
Taking centre stage on the multi-layered watch face is a hollow circle with 12-hour markers and a chapter ring. Also featured is a chamfered and beveled bezel, which comes marked by two notches. While the watch face is indeed legible from a time-telling perspective, a naked and mechanical vibe persists. The Winstonium and white gold variants come with alligator leather straps, and the rose gold version includes a black bracelet with copper highlights and topstitching in rose gold. If you need to ask how much these watches cost, you can’t afford one.
