Watchscapes: Harry Winston Opus 12

by Peter Chong on August 15, 2013

The Harry Winston Opus project is one of the daredevil projects which I do admire a lot. From the original days, when the project was helmed by Max Bussier and iconic pieces like the Opus 3 by Vianney, and Opus 5 by Urwerk, to the now just released Opus 13 by Ludovic Ballouard. But I digress…I feature Opus 12 today.

 

First published on August 16, 2013. 

I find the Harry Winston Opus 12 to be quite magical. Beautiful. One can find how it works elsewhere on the web…much has been written about the complex mechanical aspects. What remains, is to just enjoy the beauty of the watch.

Another view of the magnificent dial side, and the innovative turning indices. This is where the complication lies. Though some might argue that this is not a complication, but merely a way to tell the time, if one defines a complication as an add-on to the time telling abilities of the watch.

 

 

Certainly, a cause for celebration…a champagne perhaps?
