For this week’s edition of “Keeping Time” we have selected Harry Winston’s Histoire de Tourbillon 4 watch. As we gear up for Baselworld next month, we’ll be seeing a few previews of what we can expect at the fair, like this timepiece.
Boasting all of the craftsmanship of a Harry Winston watch, this contemporary take on a tourbillon is part of a new breed of watches heavily inspired by current architecture. Not only is the latest member of the Histoire Tourbillon line a sleek example of modern artistry, the technical refinements made to the piece offer more accuracy and superb mechanical performance, all encased within a striking shell.
A titanium base provides solid resistance to corrosion and is strong enough to protect the delicate heart of the timepiece, which sports blades inspired by high-performance aircraft propellers. The result of over 3,500 hours of labor, the Histoire de Tourbillon 4 is an arresting ode to innovative design and classic watchmaking.
