Harry Winston: Histoire de Tourbillon 73 April 2016
Harry Winston reveals its seventh edition of tourbillon, Histoire de Tourbillon 7.
Histoire de Tourbillon 7 is profoundly asymmetrical timepiece, with two biaxial tourbillons identical in structure, frequency and speed, have their own behavior, due to their different positions in space.
The right side of the dial features a pyramid-cut reading area that houses the hour and minute hands. It is surrounded by indexable inserts that form a tilted three-dimensional hour circle. Extended by a long strip in either red aluminum or anthracite, depending the version, perforated for a better view of the two biaxial tourbillons, it overlooks a power reserve indicator in roll form that is flush with a domed sapphire crystal.
The left side of the dial displays the harmonious movement of the two biaxial tourbillons. The first tourbillon cage moves into a second cage and both turn on a different axis. The two biaxial tourbillons move the escapements of the Histoire de Tourbillon 7.
With a 50mm case in white gold and only 17mm thick, the Histoire de Tourbillon 7 is an extraordinary timepiece available in a limited edition of only 20 pieces, 10 pieces for the red version and 10 for the anthracite.
