    Launched in 2017, the Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 8 is the eighth installment to the landmark watchmaking project undertaken with Greubel Forsey’s Complitime, dedicated to taking the tourbillon mechanism to new heights with innovative and daring designs.

    With its remarkable dual bi-axial tourbillons connected via a spherical differential, the Histoire de Tourbillon 8 achieved incredible levels of precision and mesmerizing mechanical mastery. Each double tourbillon is mounted on a 30-degree incline and within a second rotating completing a full rotation every 45 seconds. The open-worked dial showcases an innovative jumping time display using lightweight aluminum disks - an hour disk at 1 o’clock and minutes disk at 4 o’clock. The manually-wound movement provides a 55-hour power reserve, with a power-level indicator positioned at 6 o'clock.

    All visible elements are exquisitely finished, and through the dial various techniques including sanded, satin, grained, and honeycomb features, were strategically employed to enhance the overall presentation of the watch. The attractive red titanium dial is made using advanced techniques such as selective rhodium plating.

    Limited to only 10 examples, the present lot offers a fantastic opportunity for collectors who can appreciate quality and horological prowess. The watch, the first in the series numbered 1, is offered in like-new condition and complete with all its accessories.
