Newest Luxury Watch by Harry Winston – Project Z12

The Harry Winston Project Z12 is immediately recognisable for its architectural dial which displays retrograde hours and minutes in a unconventional concentric and subtly asymmetric layout. Placed under a large, openwork blue bridge, the hours and minutes hands do not simply move but jump over a 140-degree field. When each reaches the end of its rotation, it jumps back. In total, this retrograde choreography occurs 26 times a day, right in the middle of overlapping circles. The date is displayed on a disc located on the edge of the dial. This sapphire disc is fixed and punctuated by transfers bearing numbers between 1 and 31. Luminescent material moves beneath its surface to illuminate the date. The protruding element of Project Z12 is the large, arched bridge that straddles the central axis of the dial. Evoking the unyielding structures of Manhattan’s great bridges, the timepiece recalls Harry Winston’s New York City heritage. At the centre of this bridge is the Harry Winston emerald, its signature hallmark and a recurrent design featured on its timepieces.

Contemporary Tyson Mai’s Casio Smart Watch

Originating from Japan as an electronics company, Casio took the title of “smart watch” in the late 1950’s. Casio smart watches were performed as products for better living. Casio released lines with calculators, heat sensors, cameras, mp3 players, and even remotes to control your TV or VHS. Till this day Casio and G-Shock hold the longest lasting and most durable watches in their target market. Paying tribute to this legacy, Tyson Mai‘s Casio concept combines familiar elements from over the years. It doesn’t appear to have any of the smart features mentioned, rather, it’s a fashion throwback that’s purely aesthetic in purpose.

And the watch – UR-210 – is anything but ancient. And this watch can easily get into our list of the world’s most expensive watches.
