Recently Harry Winston celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Opus collection of high complication, high interest men’s timepieces, with a new Opus 3 watch. The founder of the Opus concept was Max Busser, now of MB&F. What makes these watches so elusive? For one, it was seven years in the making. Designer Vianney Halter and chronograph-makers Renaud & Papi (APRP) have finally cracked it as 50 limited edition pieces 25 gold and 25 platinum are all set to made available for the world to wear.
How is time told on the Opus 3? Well there are three columns of numerals, and it is read from the top down, in 24 hour time. The middle column with red numerals is the date. So the time in the upper watch would be 11:07.
