Opus 12 violated the traditional rules of watchmaking and gave birth to the most impossible mechanical concept. This extraordinary timepiece draws inspiration from the Copernicus revolution and deliberately subverts the perception of time.
In most watches, the time change is not obvious. swiss Opus 12, on the other hand, works in an amazing way, changing the guard every five minutes. In every hour of change, the movement performs very fine drills through the continuous rotation of the hands. Under the retrograde indication, the semi-transparent floating small second hand with scale crosses over the power reserve indicator.
The clock is composed of more than 600 parts and has two barrels; one of them is dedicated to the “animation” of the pointer moving over time. The Harry Winston Opus 12 case has a width of 46 mm and an 18k white gold case with a smooth technical appearance.
It is said that the middle part of the case is made of Harry Winston’s proprietary Zalium metal-zirconium alloy.
