Histoire de Tourbillon 1 debuted in 2009 in a limited series of 20 pieces.
Since tourbillons are the stars of the show, the grey dial is creatively skeletonized to reveal the balletic motion of the movement. With a manual wind movement, the Histoire de Tourbillon 1 stars not one but two single-axis tourbillons inclined at 25° and rotating fully once every 36 seconds, which is very fast, since most cages complete their round in 1 minute. Harry Winston was able to achieve this because the 88 components comprising the tourbillons only weigh .46 grams.
At the 6 o’clock position is an eccentric rotating dial with black Roman numerals and yellow arrows to indicate the time. In addition, the Histoire de Tourbillon 1 also is functional from the back with hour, minute and seconds indications. In an 18k white gold and Zalium 48mm case, the Histoire de Tourbillon 1 is a rather commanding presence on the wrist, but it’s not too heavy because Zalium is a light and sturdy material developed for the aerospace industry. Harry Winston is the only company allowed to use the material in watches. Finishing the composition is a black crocodile strap that secures the watch with an 18k white gold Harry Winston buckle.
