Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 9

Harry Winston is probably not one of the first names that most watch collectors will think of when it comes to timepieces. They are primarily known for incredible and expensive jewelry designs. However, in the case of the Histoire de Tourbillon (as well as their Opus lines), they have a long history of amazing conceptual haute horlogerie limited editions. At Baselworld 2018, the latest model of the Histoire de Tourbillon was debuted and it does not disappoint! An incredible triaxial tourbillon implementation shows off the artistry from Harry Winston. In addition to the latest version of the Histoire de Tourbillon, we take you on a brief tour of the prior eight (8) versions as well.

I can certainly appreciate the mechanical design and asthetics of the watch, but man, trying to actually tell time with one… well, let’s just say it’s a good thing people have smart phones.
