The Harry Winston Project Z9 is the comrade-in-arms of hardy adventurers
Z for zalium
A dynamic lifestyle is as surely a mark of masculinity as Harry Winston is the architect of high-tech horology. Both discerning fields that necessitate the best of expertise equipment, it is befitting that Harry Winston has committed their latest Z9 timepiece to the betterment of active recreation.
Utilising only the best of cutting-edge watchmaking technology, the Z9 is moulded to robust perfection with an athletic exterior made entirely from Zalium, an alloy exclusive to the house of Harry Winston. Able to withstand damage from corrosion and daily wear, this resilient metal is also ultra-light and non-allergenic for a supremely comfortable fit. Outfitted in a dark grey hue that emanates sleek sophistication, the Z9 is a world apart from other sporting watches.
The impressive frame houses a distinguished high-frequency movement, a first for the American label as they introduce the new HW3304 chronograph calibre that beats at an unfailing constant of 5Hz. Equipped with a silicon balance spring and a flyback function, the Project Z9 is precision redefined. A skeletonised gold oscillating weight bares the signature Harry Winston geometrical pattern, and this open-worked frame extends over the inner bezel ring to emphasise two raised chronograph counters of contrasting blue.
Enhanced with Superluminova, the complex dial lights up throughout the day and evening to highlight the exceptional visual of the blue counters against the chamfered bridges and plates. Effortlessly keeping up with the fast-paced nature of vigorous sports, the Harry Winston Project Z9 is the singular timepiece that's tough enough to keep you on schedule whether you're off spelunking or white river rafting.
The Project Z9 is available at Harry Winston boutiques. Limited edition issue of 300 units.
