The Harry Winston Opus 8 strikes imagination by its one-of-a-kind 'digital' hour and vertical minute display run by 437 individual mechanical parts. The minute display is readable to the nearest 5 minutes. It is based on a pegged disc selectively raising segments in a pattern.
The three-dimensional hour display, that will probably remind you early LED displays, is worth special attention. It appears only when the watch's wearer activates the bolt on the right hand side of the case.
When the bolt is pulled down, mechanical pixels get activated and rise up from the digitally segmented dial showing the hour, am/pm function, and minutes by rising five minute markers located in a vertical scale.
The case-back of the Harry Winston watch, designed as a printed circuit, reveals additional highly creative display, including a power reserve on the right, AM/PM indicator on the left and minutes in the center.
The Harry Winston Opus 8 watch, a limited edition of just 50 pieces, is a bold attempt of its creators to artistically express the time concept in most advanced and exceptional way.
