Harry Winston Launches Timepiece with Triple Tourbillon
World-renowned jewellery house Harry Winston has created a new limited edition model for its Histoire de Tourbillon series of watches featuring three individual tourbillons.
First launched in 2009, the Histoire de Tourbillon series was considered evidence of Harry Winton’s pioneering efforts on the creation of complicated tourbillon mechanisms.
Now the series has a new addition to the family, the 47mm Histoire de Tourbillon, and with its triple tourbillon has shown the American brand taking watch-making onto the next level. The tri-axial tourbillon is positioned at 6 o’clock, each rotating at different rates per minute.
The tourbillon components are made from a mix of titanium and 18k gold under a sapphire crystal, and are accompanied by a caliber HW4501 movement that is manually wound with a 50 hour power reserve.
Harry Winston estimates that more than 3,500 hours of labour, plus 400 additional hours of testing, were required to develop the Histoire de Tourbillon 4
The Histoire de Tourbillon 4 is limited to just 20 pieces worldwide.
