Rockin’ Around the Clock
the harry winston opus 14 is a ’50s-inspired jukebox for the wrist.
AN APPLE WATCH may ofer access to itunes, but the remarkable new Harry Winston Opus 14 draws its inspiration from an analog ancestor of the 1950s—the jukebox. The All-americana Opus 14, which has been in development for more than three years and whose 1,066-piece movement was designed by Franck Orny and Johnny Girardin of Swiss-based Telos, doesn’t actually play music, but its complications rely on a series of stackable discs and vinyl record design motifs. Housed in a massive 54.7mm-by-21.9mm white gold case, the four platters display the time, a second time zone/gmt indication, the date and a star with the signature of Harry Winston (although it can be personalized). The $434,000 timepiece will be released in a limited edition of 50, and the Opus 15 is already in the works.
