Harry Winston has developed a reputation for being able to integrate the beauty of fine watch making with the science of telling time. His fascination with Copernican theory and Copernican methods of telling time have allowed him to develop timepieces that go well beyond watches that tell the hour, minute and second.

When you look at this watch, you get the feeling that it is reserved for serious watch collectors only. That is just one of the hallmarks of a Harry Winston design.
