Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 3

As a watchmaker, Harry Winston continues to push the boundaries of design. The Histoire de Tourbillon 3 is the third series in the brand’s exploration of the tourbillon. It is equipped with three tourbillons, each rotating at different speeds. Two of the tourbillon escapements are nested one inside the other, with one rotating every 40 seconds and the other rotating every 120 seconds on an axis perpendicular to the first. Together, they cover every possible plane in relation to the field of gravity, working together to average out any positional errors in timekeeping. The third tourbillon rotates in a separate carriage at one revolution every 36 seconds, moving quickly to minimize its exposure to the effects of gravity.
