The cutting-edge Project Z6



COMPOSED of 18 layered parts, the complex dial uses five different finishes to create a highly dimensional design. The 44-mm case is set on a rubber strap enhancing the masculine, sportive look.

Launched in 2004, Harry Winston Project Z was developed as a limited-edition series bridging high technological innovation and fine watchmaking tradition. A modern mix of rugged aesthetic and refined mechanics, a bold case design is paired with finely tuned movements to create the ultimate sports watch feel.

Instrumental in revolutionizing Harry Winston Timepieces, the series introduced an exclusive material to the watchmaking industry called Zalium.

A zirconium-based alloy also used in aeronautical engineering, the hypoallergenic and corrosive-resistant properties of Zalium allow for the creation of watches with ultimate durability and design.

DESIGNED to let you ease your way through different time zones, ideal for those who are frequent travelers, the Ocean Dual Time in rose gold is developed from Harry Winston’s fourth Project Zalium collection.

The ultra-light metal is known for its lustrous gunmetal finish and is exclusive to Harry Winston timepieces.

Project Z6 introduces a new complication to Harry Winston’s timepiece offering—a hand-wound, 24-hour alarm clock movement developed specially for Project Z6 and exclusive to Harry Winston timepieces.

Comprised of 340 pieces, the intricate movement is meticulously engineered to optimize performance, with the function and complication developed from scratch and fully integrated. The 45 jewel movement is engraved Harry Winston and hand-finished with Côtes de Genève even on the bridges. The bridges are hand-polished and each part is chamfered to enhance the beauty of the movement.

EXCLUSIVE and sporty, this timepiece has a hand-wound, 24-hour alarm clock movement specially developed for Project Z6 and exclusive to Harry Winston.

Producing a crisp sound, the alarm clock is set with the crown and activated by using a repeater-style trigger positioned on the case at 4 o’clock. Designed to be seen—not only heard—a visible hammer is fixed to the case to show the alarm ringing and enhance exterior sound transmission.

The monobloc bell is crafted from one rectangular piece, resulting in better sound amplification. When the movement is fully wound, the alarm will last approximately 20 seconds. Further emphasizing the practical functionality, the double barrels guarantee a 72-hour power reserve and ensure the complication will not disrupt the movement timekeeping. The two barrels can be found at the same time, for added convenience.

The excentered dial features two overlapping disks displaying the primary time and the alarm clock, each with separate day and night indicators. Both hour/minute time and alarm time are conveniently set by using the crown, and can be wound clockwise or counterclockwise.

A small shuriken-shaped disk indicates the seconds rotation. Borrowed from martial arts, a shuriken is the traditional ninja throwing star—a signature in Project Z designs, the distinct symbol underlines the series’ cutting-edge sports design.

The Project Z6 is a limited-edition of 300 pieces.

Harry Winston is at G/F Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
