For the fourth edition of the Only Watch charity auction, Swiss luxury watch brand Harry Winston dedicates an exclusive model from the Midnight collection. The Midnight GMT Tourbillon for Only Watch 2011 is a one of a kind Haute Horlogerie model that bears the genetic imprint of a brand that has imposed its unique and innovative style on a centuries-old industry. It incorporates many of the iconic Harry Winston signature features.
Topped by a bezel discreetly bearing the three distinctive arches of the Harry Winston’s New York Salon, the case is crafted in platinum exclusively for Only Watch. Its 45 mm diameter magnificently frames a mechanical bidirectional automatic movement. Endowed with a 110-hour power reserve, the mechanism drives the horological complications appearing on en eminently masculine ruthenium dial. The tourbillon positioned at 6 o’clock carries the small seconds display, while the GMT display at 9 o’clock is enriched with a day/night indication. The 11 o’clock aperture indicates the cities representing the second timezone, including Monaco in tribute to the Only Watch event. The alternating finishes accentuate the urban and sophisticated spirit of a model brilliantly combining horological tradition with the legendary Harry Winston creativity.
The Harry Winston’s Only Watch 2011 Midnight GMT Tourbillon mingles design and technology to offer a resolutely contemporary vision of time. The pure, finely balanced elegance of this unique model dedicated to a noble cause will doubtless appeal to collectors of fine watchmaking and who appreciate exceptional craftsmanship.
