Harry Winston Bold Project Z6 Watch

Feb 01, 2010
Following the success of the Project Z5 watch, the world-famous watch company Harry Winston has recently introduced its extraordinary Project Z6 watch. The timepiece stands out due to its case rendered in zalium. This hypo-allergenic material that boasts great corrosion-resistance has been developed by Ronald Winston, an experienced chemical engineer. Zalium is employed exclusively in the production of the brands watches.

A new complication in the collection, the Project Z6 watch is endowed with a 24-hour alarm on a unique manually-wound movement, engineered specially for this watch. The sophisticated movement is composed of 340 individual parts and studded with 45 jewels. Embellished with a Cotes-de-Geneve pattern, it incorporates hand-chamfered bridges. The novel Harry Winston watch provides a 72-hour power reserve, which is attainable thanks to two barrels.

For activating the striking-mechanism for the alarm, the watch incorporates a trigger, located at 4 oclock. The alarm is adjusted by the crown, protected by an original W-shaped crown-guard. The hammer, fixed to the case, can be enjoyed through an opening on the dial, whereas the rectangular-shaped gong produces optimal resonance.

Housed in a 44 mm case is an off-center dial, performed either in anthracite or silver. Demonstrating 5 different kinds of finishing, the dial is completed with two overlapping disks, which serve to show the time and the alarms striking-mechanism. Protecting the dial is a sapphire crystal.

The Harry Winston Project Z6 watch is presented on a black rubber strap, finished with a zalium buckle. The Harry Winston watch is submersible to 100 meters. As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, it is to be issued in a limited series of 300 pieces.
