Harry Winston Ocean Chronograph Watch
Do my eyes deceive me or is this really a symmetrically dialed Ocean collection watch!? Me thinks it is. While not one of a kind, Harry Winston men's watches are rarely symmetrical - especially in the Ocean collection. This Ocean Chronograph is one of them, and doesn't look half bad. Harry Winston opts for a retrograde system of hands for the chronograph. Not a new interpretation of the complication, but appreciated enough among collectors.
The triple retrograde display doesn't help you read the chronograph any better (it actually makes it a bit harder), but these hands that move to the edge of the dial and then jump back to the starting position are arguably more cool than your standard round dial. The time is told in a subdial at the top of the face - in an uncharacteristically simplistic style by Harry Winston standards. There is a little window in the minute retrograde counter that has a subsidiary seconds hand - that is more an icon versus a readable dial. The chronograph pushers are set in, curved near the crown guards. Harry Winston decided to make the 44mm wide case in 18k white gold. Inside the watch is a Swiss automatic movement with a retrograde chronograph module on it. Look for the Harry Winston Ocean Chronograph soon.
