Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 4 Watch

Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 4 Watch close up
The latest development in this collection by Harry Winston, Histoire de Tourbillon 4 is a masterwork of precision contained in a dramatic but refined design. Its heart is a tourbillon inside three concentric cages, each rotating at a different speed and at a different angle. Histoire de Tourbillon 4 has two, fast rotating barrels to deliver superior energy with lower friction. The variable inertia balance is controlled by 18k gold timing screws in the rim. Bold, contemporary colours and an "open grid" dial configuration accentuate the movement, as do the domed sapphire crystals which are arranged on multiple levels. 20-piece limited series.
