The newly release Opus Eleven by Harry Winston is a lavish wristwatch at a Winston-worthy price – coming in at approximately $250,000. The Opus Eleven was designed by Denis Giguet from MCT, and Giguet explains that the true fascination of the Opus Eleven lies behind the 566-part movement, most of which are exposed in the main face, along with 24 conical points and 155 jewels. Time is read on three different discs. Instead of a traditional hand, the center piece shows the hour through 24 revolving placards; the upper-right pavilion on the watch displays the minutes on two separate discs (one for tens and one for single digits); and the lower-right pavilion displays the regular beat of a large titanium balance-wheel.
The case of the Opus Eleven is made of 18k white gold and sapphire crystal. Production is limited to only 111 pieces. A video animation of the Opus Eleven’s actions can be viewed here.
