Harry Winston Ocean Big Date Only Watch

For the sixth time, the name of the famous American luxury jeweler and producer of Swiss timepieces, Harry Winston, will be listed among the participating brands. This upscale brand will donate a unique custom model of its Ocean Big Date from its Project Z collection, which is dedicated to some of the most demanding mechanical complications in watchmaking. Same as all other watches designed for the Only Watch Charity Auction, this timepiece is one of its kind, and its open case back is engraved with the inscription “Only Watch 2017 Unique Piece.”

Harry Winston Ocean Big Date Only Watch

The Ocean Big Dae Only Watch is a sporty-elegant timepiece crafted from stainless steel. Its case measures 42mm in diameter, framing a generous openworked dial with Harry Winston’s signature off-centered hours and minutes with a big date window at 6 o’clock. The yellow accents, symbolizing the thematic color of the 2017 edition of the Only Watch auction, are present on the dial and strap. They are visible on the tips of the hour markers, on the Harry Winston logo, and on the frame of the big date window. In addition, these elements have been treated with a blue-emission photophorescent material that ensures perfect readability in all light conditions.

The New York City’s landscape, its avant-garde spirit, and steely grey skyscrapers inspire the architectural design of the dial. Naturally, Harry Winston pays homage to its hometown, a city in which the famous jeweler founded his namesake business. The dial is set against a backdrop of large radiating Côtes de Genève bridges, with four matte black structures anchoring the sub-dial and the big date window.

The Ocean Big Date Only Watch is powered by the mechanical automatic movement HW3206 equipped with twin barrels and a flat silicon balance spring. The movement, which is fully exposed on the front and back of the dial, provides a solid power reserve of 72 hours.

This unique watch, reference OCEABD42WW001, is presented on a black alligator strap with yellow stitching. The watch will be auctioned on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Christie’s will be conducting the auction for the first time. More information about the auction available at onlywatch.com.
