Redefining luxury sport watches with Project Z, Harry Winston debuts the Z10 as the next in line

Sleek and sporty watches are increasingly the timepieces of choice when it comes to rugged gents (or enthusiasts of street style) and Project Z by Harry Winston checks all the requirements for cutting-edge technical watches that are both innovative and gritty.

Now in its 10th edition, the Z10 is the latest in the lineup, crafted with next-generation materials using an alloy exclusive to Harry Winston. Ultra light, comfortable and hardy, Zalium forms the timepiece's 42.2mm exterior, with the entirety of the case carved from a single block of this unique material. An evolution of the house's watchmaking prowess, the Z10 displays a progressively mechanical design with a skeleton structure inspired by the Manhattan Bridge that zigzags across an openworked dial, appearing like deep blue aluminium ladders juxtaposed against a silvery-gray canvas of gears and components that is the HW3305 calibre.

With a double retrograde movement alongside the hours and minutes located off-centre in a black grid encircled by an index ring, the openworked dial tracks the days of the week on the right steel arch and is counterbalanced on the left with a 30-seconds indicator. High-impact precision coupled with everyday versatility and a striking visual, the Harry Winston Project Z10 is a study in pure urbane refinement meant for those who seek the avant-garde.

The Project Z10 is available at Harry Winston boutiques. Limited edition of 300 pieces.
