Harry-Winston-Histoire-Tourbillon-4-3

 

This watch is the timepiece version of the movie ‘Inception’. This fourth edition of the Histoire de Tourbillon series by Harry Winstron feautes a triple tourbillon. What does that mean? That means it is a tourbillon inside of a tourbillon, inside of a tourbillon. Leonardo DiCaprio, we need to go deeper!

The tourbillon components are made from a mix if titanium and 18k gold under a sapphire crystal. It has a 50 hour power reserve, and took 160 hours and 345 parts to create.

Harry Winston’s Histoire de Tourbillon 4 watch will be limited to 20 pieces.
