Harry Winston Glissiere

The timepiece.

Only 25 of them were made, in gold. Another 25 in rose gold. The Glissiere was created, along with his team, by Hamdi Chatti, managing director of Harry Winston Rare Timepieces. This kinetic, mesmerizing watch was an instant sensation. The winding system is a major signifier and differentiator for this piece. On one side, two sliding blocks of platinum with toothed racks that directly engage the winding ratchet; on the other side, sylized wings that crank up the ratchet via pinions. The flying tourbillon animates the endless locomotion through time in precise jumps of six degrees of arc. A manual winding or self-winding watch for the ages.
