Harry Winston’s Project Z10 Is A Beautiful Watchmaking Statement
Part of a limited-edition series of only 300 pieces, the exceptional Harry Winston Project Z10 shows off a 42 mm Zalium case, double AR-coated sapphire crystals and the ability to handle depths of up to 100 meters.
Of course, the American luxury jeweler and watchmaker has unveiled this whimsical creation at Baselworld 2016, impressing everyone who attended the show with this wonderful example of engineering. The beating heart of this watch is a Swiss automatic in-house caliber called HW3305, featuring 35 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 65 hours.
Harry Winston has finished Project Z10 in 18kt white gold, that’s complemented by circular Côtes de Genève bridges with snailing on the plate, as well as bridges with sunray spiral on the dial side.
The vivid blue anodized aluminum dial, that’s also skeletonized, seems to fit the overall theme of this bespoke watch perfectly. The design team from Harry Winston has also imagined a galvanic black circular satin finish for the ring, rhodium-plated indeces, as well as the black openworked grid in the center.
The finishing touch consists of a blue alligator leather strap, which goes hand in hand with the blue dial, with rubber lining and a Zalium ardillon buckle. I’m sure the latest offering from Harry Winston will have a ton of potential clients, just by looking at these photos.
