Harry Winston opus watches celebrations and innovations

Traditionally known for its diamond jewelry, Harry Winston launched its first timepiece collection in 1989. Watch and Jewelry retailer Harry Winston celebrated ten years of its Opus timepiece collection in September inviting all ten independent designers to join in the celebrations. The gala dinner event took place at the Harry Winston Manufacture in Geneva, Switzerland, and drew together the ten independent watchmakers the brand has collaborated with on the ten individually created watch models, since the Opus collection’s launch in 2001.Rare Jewels of the World Harry Winston The creators of the ten Opus models were in attendance, including Fran├žois-Paul Journe, Antoine Preziuso, Vianney Halter, Christophe Claret, Felix Baumgartner, Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey, Andreas Strehler, Frederic Garinaud, Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and Eric Giroud, Jean-Fran├žois Mojon.
A new Harry Winston timepiece may interest watch fans looking for an item that suggests a fine and rich design. One of the main points about the Harry Winston Midnight Chrono Tourbillon is the use of the tourbillion mechanism, a device that was invented more than 200 years ago and can be viewed in working motion via a window in the left hand side of the timepiece's face. This feature is neighbored on the watch face by a time display that is off-centered, a common design unique to products from Harry Winston, who first got into the jewellery and timepiece industry in 1932.Harry Winston Watches
To help wearers to identify the current time, a dark blue color is used for both a chronograph minutes counter and a seconds hand, which contrasts brilliantly with the rest of the color scheme for the watch which is available in either rose gold or white gold. The case measures in at a size able 44mm and is able to have power reserves of up to 72 hours. Finishing off each edition of the timepiece is a black alligator strap.
About 7 years later in 2003 the Opus 3 watch was finally heading into production. In terms of believing that this thing would take that long to design and build all agreed. In actual fact through its it could took this much time to figure out how to engineer that watch as there are an above average number of rotating discs. The time is displayed from the top down and the middle numbers, the ones in red, is the day. The Opus 3 is limited to 50 pieces and each one costs $80,000. According to Harry Winston all 50 preorders are still intact since 2003, with zero customers asking for a refund. If that isn’t a evidence to brand adherence than what it is!
