Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 5
Like a unicorn, you’ll be hard pressed to ever see one of these creations in your lifetime. One of the world’s most exotic timepieces — and likely the last in the series given the brand’s acquisition by The Swatch Group — the Histoire de Tourbillon lineup, started in 2009, was simply a division that knew no creative bounds. Its bulbous design (21.7mm) coupled with rose gold 47mm case makes it a significant piece and a true showman’s watch. Inside the HW4303 movement, 381 parts equate to a 50-hour power reserve while functionally, the hour and minutes are imaginatively noted on separate discs. Don’t let the tourbillon fool you; ironically, at the heart of this watch is a pretty straightforward mechanism for telling time.
