Virtuozity - - WATCH NEWS -

Harry Win­ston re­cently do­nated the one-of-a-kind Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch to the Only Watch char­ity auc­tion, which ben­e­fits the Monaco As­so­ci­a­tion Against Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy (AMM). The phil­an­thropic event, un­der the pa­tron­age of H.S.H. Prince Al­bert II of Monaco, will be held on Novem­ber 7, 2015.

For Only Watch 2015, Harry Win­ston cre­ated a time­piece that hon­ors the spirit of its Ocean col­lec­tion with its im­pres­sive case, move­ment and dial, which to­gether of­fer high-per­for­mance style. En­graved with the in­scrip­tion “Only Watch 2015 Unique Piece” on its open case back, the Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch is a oneof-a-kind time­piece.

The Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch fea­tures a unique strap, made with both blue al­li­ga­tor skin and black rub­ber, de­signed specif­i­cally for Only Watch 2015. Else­where, the watch fea­tures a 44.2mm white gold case, ex­ud­ing a mas­cu­line style through a sporty design.

On the in­side, the time­piece holds a self-wind­ing au­to­matic Dual Time Retrograde me­chan­i­cal move­ment, mean­ing that the watch can dis­play two time zones. Seg­re­gated func­tions fur­ther set this time­piece apart and al­low for an ex­cen­tered hour/minute dis­play at 1 o’clock, a day/night in­di­ca­tor at 3 o’clock, a cal­en­dar aper­ture and a Shuriken power in­di­ca­tor.

The time­piece also in­cludes an ex­tra dis­con­nect mech­a­nism, con­trolled by the crown, which al­lows the wearer to set the retrograde lo­cal time for­ward or back.

Boast­ing 281 parts, 32 ru­bies, a sil­i­con flat bal­ance spring and a white-gold skele­tonised os­cil­lat­ing weight, this cal­iber ex­udes fine crafts­man­ship all the way to its cir­cu­lar Côtes de Genève fin­ish.

Another party piece of the Ocean Dual Time Retrograde Only Watch is the 3D dial, which prom­ises a high-pow­ered aes­thetic with its sym­bolic design. The home time is in­di­cated by sap­phire and alu­minum hands in­spired by the Shuriken four-point star and Harry Win­ston’s sig­na­ture blue colour. The lo­cal time is in­di­cated by a 3D hour hand, crafted from an­odised alu­minum.
