The Opus 9 timepiece by Harry Winston is unique to say the least. Well, it doesn’t go full circle to tell you the time. In fact, it prefers a linear track lined with diamonds to give that extra edge to whoever wears it. Yes, the makers have created two parallel diamond chains to keep track of the minute and seconds while a vivid mandarin garnet highlights the hours on the left side of the dial and the minutes on the right.
Offering quite a luxurious treat, the chains sparkle with 33 baguette-cut-diamonds. And each of these diamonds has been calibrated with the utmost care and craftsmanship to get the most perfect movement ticking on your wrist. There is a special reason for the chains to be crafted in brass — to maximize mobility ad minimize friction.
The continuous gliding movement is propelled by a special rack and pinion mechanism that creates a lateral drive to that effect. With features like automatic self-winding, 72-hours power reserve and a 30-meter water resistance, you can enjoy this baby from the marriage between Harry Winston and Jean Marc Wiederrecht for a price of $180,000. Only 100 pieces are available for sale.
