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.
