The House of Harry Winston has announced that it will be introducing the Project Z, a new high-tech timepiece collection. A key model in the range will be the Project Z9, of which has recently been unveiled by the watchmaker.
The 44.2 mm case of the timepiece will be produced entirely using Zalium, an alloy that is both ultra-light and durable. It will contain an in-house HW3304 automatic mechanism that beats at 36,000 vibrations per hour (5 Hz) and has a flat silicone balance spring. In addition, the movement boasts a total of 235 components and 37 jewels.
It will include hour and minute functions. While, the flyback chronograph will feature 30-minute and 12-hour counters, along with small seconds and date display.
Supplied on a black rubber strap, the design of the piece is complemented by an 18-carat white gold openworked rotor, circular Côtes de Genève, circular graining, chamfered bridges, rhodium plating, openworked date disk and circular-grained mechanism cover. It is finished in satin with shot-blasted edges.
The caseback of the Project Z9 is seethrough with sapphire crystal, allowing the wearer to observe the very inner workings of the watch in its entirety.
The Harry Winston Project Z9 is water resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 meters or 330 feet). It will be available in a limited quantity of only 300 pieces.
