Project Z series from Harry Winston’s always expressed contemporary creative aspirations with radically modern and sporty accents. The new Winston’s Z12 breaks the mould of conventional time displays. Like all its predecessors, Project Z12 is housed in a Zalium case the brand’s exclusive, high-performance alloy.

The layout and nature of the complications forge the identity of each Project Z timepiece. For the past fourteen years, the line has stayed true to a highly mechanical fine watchmaking spirit that features radically modern accents.

This mesmerizing watch shows off a 42.2 mm case, with double AR-coated sapphire crystals and 100-meter diving capabilities as part of the exquisite offering. The Swiss automatic Harry Winston in-house caliber HW3306 powers this beauty, with 68 hours of backup power allowing this watch to take a break once in a while.

It features a flat silicon balance spring, an 18kt engraved openworked white gold rotor with circular Cotes de Geneve decoration. Blue decorated bridge. Functions are: retrograde hours and minutes, and date. But the most eye catching part of its design is definitely the wonderful three-dimensional architectural dial. It features a lovely sapphire luminescent date disc, blue hour and minute circles and matching hour markers, while the two hands move over a 140-degree field – at the end of their rotation they just jump back to the start, adding to the seductive confusion that defines this watch.

It comes on a calfskin leather strap with denim effect, and a rubber base. Zalium ardillon buckle with folding safety clasp.
