Histoire de Tourbillon 4

Harry Winston 2013

Histoire de Tourbillon 4

With hours, minutes and power reserve displayed in separate subdials, this Histoire de Tourbillon 4 of course gives pride of place to the complication which Abraham-Louis Breguet patented in 1801. All the more so as Harry Winston has chosen a tri-axial tourbillon whose carriages, positioned at different angles, rotate each at their own speed. This mechanical ballet is enthroned at 6 o’clock under a sapphire crystal dome, giving this watch its full force. Limited edition of 20.
