The House of Harry Winston has created the one-of-a-kind Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch to support the Only Watch charity auction, benefiting the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy (AMM). This incredible philanthropic event, under the kind patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, will be held on November 7, 2015.
For Only Watch 2015, Harry Winston created an exclusive timepiece that honors the spirit of the Ocean collection with its impressive case, movement and dial, that together offer high-performance style.
The Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch features a 44.2mm white gold case and exudes a truly masculine style through its sporty design.
Featuring a self-winding automatic Dual Time Retrograde mechanical movement, this expertly designed timepiece can display two time zones. Segregated functions further set this timepiece apart and allow for an excentered hour/minute display at 1 o’clock, a day/night indicator at 3 o’clock, a calendar aperture and a Shuriken power indicator. This extraordinary timepiece also includes an extra disconnect mechanism, controlled by the crown, that allows the wearer to set the retrograde local time forward or back.
Boasting 281 parts, 32 rubies, a silicon flat balance spring and a white-gold skeletonized oscillating weight, this sophisticated caliber exudes fine craftsmanship all the way to its circular Côtes de Genève finish.
The Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch features a spectacular 3D dial that promises a high-powered aesthetic with its symbolic design. The home time is indicated by sapphire and aluminum hands inspired by the Shuriken four-point star and Harry Winston’s signature blue color. The local time is indicated by an inventive 3D hour hand, impressively crafted from anodized aluminum.
The Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch features a unique strap, made with both blue alligator skin and black rubber, designed specifically for Only Watch 2015. Engraved with the inscription “Only Watch 2015 Unique Piece” on its open case back, the breathtaking Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch is a one-of-a-kind timepiece.
