  • Catalogue Essay

    With an attractive effulgence, Harry Winston’s Opus 9 collection is, in many ways, truly exceptional. In collaboration with the celebrated watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and the famous Swiss designer Eric Giroud, the Opus 9 is by all means the epitome of excellence, extravagance and expressiveness.

    Encased in a grandiose case made of 18k white gold, the Opus 9 is an opulent amalgamation of sublime horological technology and fine jewelry. Using in total 66 baguette-cut diamonds (~2.15 carats in total) and 6 garnet stones (~0.22 carat in total), the Opus 9 is the first timepiece of the celebrated Opus series to use precious stones for the purpose of telling time. Within this majestic watch, two parallel chains – each adorned with 33 diamonds and 3 garnet stones – replaced the traditional watch hands and dial to show the hours and minutes. In order to fit neatly into the movement, every diamond and garnet had to be cut to watchmaking precision. Designed by Eric Giroud, the splendid white gold case of the watch displays an aura of elegance, further underscoring the brilliance and beauty of the precious stones.

    In 2009, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève presented the “Design Watch Prize” to Harry Winston in recognition of the technical and aesthetic finesse of the Opus 9. An embodiment of artistry and fine craftsmanship, the present watch is numbered 50 of a limited of 100 pieces.
