For its 10th edition, the Harry Winston Project Z series evolves towards an increasingly mechanical aesthetic. Project Z10 showcases a double retrograde movement with automatic winding, through an openwork dial, whose skeleton structure reveals its meticulous finishes. Inspired by the Manhattan Bridge, this high-intensity technical design recalls the ambitious work of the early steel era, and the origins of the Project Z series, in terms of the case, strap, dial, display, and movement.
The case of the Project Z10 is carved from a block of Zalium™, a unique, ultra-lightweight alloy exclusive to Harry Winston, and is mounted on a Shuriken-marked dual strap that is composed of black rubber and blue alligator leather. The combination of these materials adds to the exclusivity of this exquisite new creation of 42.2 mm.
The frame of the dial features extremely fine openwork and is made of deep blue anodized aluminum, emphasizing the beauty of the metal. Project Z10 is dominated by the striking relationship between the powerful gray of the Zalium™ and the deep blue of the dial structures.
The hour is indicated off-center. The HW3305 caliber displays the day of the week at 4 o’clock and seconds, on a scale of 0 to 30, at 8 o'clock. There is something special about these two indications; something that is at the heart of the Project Z's identity: they are both retrograde. The hands travel 120 degrees, instead of making a full revolution. At the end of their journey, they automatically jump back and resume their operation.
By embracing the complication, showcasing its components, and affirming its mechanical and metallic core, Project Z10 continues in the remarkable tradition of the Project Z series. Though the line has developed over the past 10 years, it maintains a strong sense of continuity and consistency. The 300 limited edition timepieces are striking and original, in addition to being lightweight and exceptionally comfortable to wear.
