The Opus Series

Opus is an unusual collection of Harry Winston timepieces which have been created in a collaborative partnership between Harry Winston and many of modern Horology's most talented independent watchmakers. Introduced in 2001, the concept behind the Opus collection allows Harry Winston to collaborate with one independent watchmaker every year to produce a limited edition watch.

The Opus 3: A Collaboration With Vianney Halter

The Opus 3 is part of a limited edition of 55 examples in platinum or pink gold, featuring a complex mechanical movement and a unique aesthetic that was a considerable and impressive departure from the previous Opus models. Featuring six porthole displays which each have their own jumping hour indicator, this watch is a considered a legendary part of the Opus collection.

The present watch has been imagined and designed by Vianney Halter, an independent French watchmaker who began creating in the 1990's. It was designed on the basis of being the missing link between analog display mechanical watches and digital display electronic watches where Opus 3 is the first digital display mechanical watch. Vianney Halter has recently been awarded the prize of innovation for his Deep Space Tourbillon wristwatch at the 2013 Grand Prix D'Horlogerie de Genève.
