Westminster Tourbillon

To mark the inauguration of its new salon in the British capital, Harry Winston created the Westminster Tourbillon as a limited edition of eight pieces. This watch combines two of the greatest horological complications: the tourbillon and the minute repeater, which chimes the same notes as the clock tower on the Palace of Westminster. Within such a prestigious model as the Westminster Tourbillon, Harry Winston naturally wished to offer an exceptional tourbillon. The one featured here is of the flying kind. The effect is truly striking, since the carriage appears to be floating above the plates. The diamond nestling at the center of the carriage adds an additional touch of refinement. The watch is endowed with a 70-hour power reserve, and the movement is entirely visible.
