Harry Winston Project Z5

Apr 26, 2008
The prestigious Project Z Series by Harry Winston has been joined by a new timepiece - the Z5. The watch has for the first time incorporated a tourbillon mechanism and two time zones. The Z5 is destined for men who are frequent travelers, and those passionate about items of top quality and functionality.

The tourbillon mechanism reflects the distinct, sporty character of the watch. This complicated feature is displayed at 6 o'clock. The Harry Winston master watchmakers have met a new chorological challenge, having added a double time zone into a self-winding tourbillon watch.

The first time zone for showing time in the reference city is positioned off-centre at 2 o'clock. The second, smaller time zone for showing time in the city visited is found at 9 o'clock. The timepiece features a jumping display, in French, with names of 24 cities for each of the 24 time zones.

The creators of Harry Winston Project Z5 managed to simplify the handling of the double time zone complication - the owner of the watch will have to simply turn the crown to simultaneously adjust the hour and the city.

The tourbillon is accommodated in a 45mm Zalium case, a material ideally fashioned by Harry Winston and unique to Haute Horlogerie of the company. The anthracite dial is adorned with vertical guilloche pattern matching the overall elegance and beauty of the timepiece.

The 34-ruby movement provides 100-hour power reserve. The 100-meter water-resistant watch is being created in a limited edition of 150 pieces.

The Harry Winston Project Z5 is available with either a leather or rubber strap revealing an embossed, stylized three-bladed shuriken design, a concealable Ninja throwing weapon chosen as the mobile symbol of Project Z watches.
