The continuation of the Harry Winston Opus saga has finally arrived after a 2 year wait with the launch of The Harry Winston Opus 14.
The Opus 14 has been called a “Jukebox on your wrist” . This is in reference to its unique mechanical configuration using four stacked disks which recall the nostalgic automated music-playing device.
The four disks on the dial bring to mind the slide out vinyl records and with a press of the pusher at 4 o’clock an arm reaches out, picks up the disk, and moves it onto the “turntable” on the dial at 2 o’clock all in similar jukebox fashion.
The disks display local time, GMT time, date and a star bearing the signature of Mr. Harry Winston.
Further retro touches include a “14” in the style of a US highway sign such as route 66 and a choice of red and blue colors that evoke the American diner aesthetic.
The Opus 14 functionality it controlled by a selector on the side of the case at 9 o’clock, once a specific display has been chosen, the entire stack of disks moves up freeing the chosen disk.
The video below will give a better understanding of the Opus 14 functionality.
For the Opus 14, the brand has partnered with watchmakers Franck Orny and Johnny Girardin.
The Harry Winston Opus 14 has an imposing 54.7mm case in gold and will be a limited production of 50 pieces and retail is CHF 428,000 ($426,000)
