The brand new complicated piece, featuring a moon phase and a retrograde date – the very first for the collection.
The 42.2 mm case of the Project Z13 by Harry Winston is made of Zalium (whose initial provided the name for the collection) – a trademark zirconium-aluminum alloy that is extremely robust and seriously lighter than gold or steel. The openworked dial architecture traditionally plays with some asymmetrical details surrounding the perfectly aligned hour and minute sub-dial at twelve o’clock and the moon phase at 6. The latter is executed in a form of a dodecagonal disc with a shuriken symbol – a signature motif of the series.
The HW3202 automatic caliber also has a retrograde date. Its surface occupies the entire lower half of the dial with a long thin hand fixed at the bottom of the main register, and the white numerals sitting on the blue outer ring. The fine finishings are visible from both the front and the backside, thanks to the transparent sapphire caseback. The piece is fitted with the calfskin strap on a rubber base with a blue stitching. The watch offers 68 hours of power reserve and it is water resistant to 100 meters. Harry Winston Project Z13 is limited to 300 pieces.
