DEVELOPED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH JEAN-MARC WIEDERRECHT & ERIC GIROUD
Limited edition of 100 pieces
Utilizing diamonds as the functional element of telling time, Opus 9 celebrates the core of Harry Winston heritage, while pushing the boundaries of timepiece design. Replacing the traditional watch hands and cyclical dial, time is displayed by two parallel diamond chains for hours and minutes. There are no hands; instead, a linear display uses two vivid almandine garnets as the indicators.
In 2009, Opus 9 was awarded the prize for Best Design Watch prize by the Jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
