Known throughout the world as the 'King of Diamonds' Harry Winston is a mythical name in the world of jewellery. Renowned not only for its exclusive selection of diamonds, but also for its timeless designs and flawless craftsmanship, the house began its foray into the world of horology in 1989 with its Signature Collection. Since then, in keeping with the company's reputation for exclusivity and innovation and by using the expertise of Switzerland's finest craftsmen, Harry Winston has regularly created elegant timepieces of supreme timelessness and developed a reputation as a leader in watch complications.
EXCENTER TIMEZONE by Harry Winston is a distinctive-looking timepiece that has a retrograde second time zone and a compensating toothed gear (a gear with no backlash).
18 carat white gold watch (39 mm) equipped with a Jaquet 7060 mechanical movement with module HW2821. For greater precision of the hour and minute display, the movement includes a world first: a gear train with no backlash.
The dial is either anthracite-coloured or in silver with displays of hours and minutes on the right hand side of the dial with a day/night indicator below. There is a date aperture at 6 o'clock, a 5-day power reserve indicator at 12 o'clock, a guilloché second time zone display with a retrograde counter on the left of the dial and a screw-in push-piece at 8 o'clock for setting it. Anti-reflection sapphire crystals front and back, crocodile leather strap with 18 carat white gold folding clasp, water-resistant to 30 metres.
