Harry Winston Opus 11 Swiss mechanical watches

by 09 November 2011

Harry Winston launched the Opus timepiece collection in 2000, and continues to come up with surprising high watchmaking concepts in limited-edition timepieces. Opus 11 collection this time is in collaboration with an independent watchmaker called Denis Giguet. He drew inspirations from fish in the ocean.

When faced with danger or attack, the fish goes into different directions, but as soon as the threat goes away, the fish comes together again and swim in one single direction. This idea gave rise to a radical time display for the Opus 11, where every plate carries a piece of the puzzle, and when the barrels power the 560-piece movement, the hour display is literally put together by the different plates. The minute display is shown in an additional case attached to the watch's main case at the 1 o'clock position. This is a limited edition of 100 pieces.
