Revisiting the Jumping Hours by Harry Winston

The watch is a pure horological creation, meaning that it was designed without gender. It can be worn by both men and women.
46mm x 26mm x 10.6mm and very steeply curved over the wrist. In pure platinum, it is probably very heavy.

The Jumping Hour was strictly only 25 rhuthenium dials and another 25 blue dials...the jump hour disc is light blue instead of black as in the picture.

The movement with the full balance bridge is Jacquet.

A non jumping hour version will be introduced, also with a Jacquet handwind, in white gold.

For those interested in the design aspect, this is a piece that is using a layout of dividing the minutes/hour dial with the seconds dial overlapping the "6"...a theme which the company identifies with as an "excenter" layout.
It bridges the Premier and Avenue collections after over a decade.

It was also a very serious move towards the high end collectors group with a shaped movement, and possibly one of the most subtle jumping hours ever, especially in such a narrow space.
