Like all iterations of Harry Winston’s Project Z, the case of Project Z9 is entirely made in Zalium™, an exclusive alloy, with a range of technical and aesthetic qualities that make it a truly unique material. Zalium’s™ ultra-light and non-allergenic properties make the 44.2 mm case exceptionally comfortable to wear, while its outstanding resistance to corrosion guarantees both its longevity and robustness. The Project Z9 is driven by a high-frequency movement, for the first time. The new HW3304 chronograph caliber is equipped with a silicon balance-spring, which permanently beats at a frequency of 5 Hz. This oscillation speed guarantees Project Z9 a particularly precise rate. Caliber HW3304 is also equipped with a flyback function. The resolutely modern nature of Project Z9 is also expressed on its dial, which is composed of an open-worked 3D grid bearing the indications. This skeletonized frame extends up over the inner bezel ring towards the indexes.
