Harry Winston begins the seventh chapter in its Histoire de Tourbillon. Brought to life by two biaxial tourbillons, this visually stunning timepiece invents a new language of mechanical complexity, with spectacular results.

Harry Winston reveals its seventh edition of the most legendary complication: the tourbillon. After having explored its variations – biaxial, triaxial, double or coupled with a carrousel – Harry Winston surpasses all technical limits once again. In an incredible show, the Histoire de Tourbillon 7 features two biaxial tourbillons that dance with time.
The right side of the dial features a pyramid-cut reading area that houses the hour and minute hands. It is surrounded by indexable inserts that form a tilted three-dimensional hour circle. Extended by a long strip in either red aluminum or anthracite, depending on the version, perforated for a better view of the two biaxial tourbillons, it overlooks a power reserve indicator in roll form that is flush with a domed sapphire crystal.
The left side of the dial displays the harmonious movement of the two biaxial tourbillons. The first tourbillon cage moves into a second cage and both turn on a different axis. The two biaxial tourbillons move the escapements of the Histoire de Tourbillon 7.

High complication movement

The Histoire de Tourbillon 7 is a sophisticated interpretation of a high complication movement, the result of exceptional attention to design. The case, made from white gold, has a 50 mm diameter and polished bezel. It features an opening in unique proportions to expertly showcase the dance of the biaxial tourbillons.

The Histoire de Tourbillon 7 is an extraordinary timepiece and representation of true watchmaking. Its movement, showcasing first-class finishes, is among the most sophisticated that exist today. Its complexity demands extreme exclusivity. In fact, like its six predecessors, only 20 of these magnificent timepieces will be released: 10 pieces for the red version and 10 pieces for the anthracite version.
