Like its predecessors, Harry Winston Project Z14 reconciles creative contradictions because of the combination of exquisite details and bold techniques. The Z signature is a sign that the architectural elements strategically create a three-dimensional timepiece. Transparent materials and different finishes make the dial design more stylish and modern.
For 14 years, Z series projects have achieved a balance between consistency and innovation. Zalium is at the forefront of the series. Zalium is an ultra-light, corrosion-resistant alloy that can be used to make every watch case. Another series of signatures for the Z14 project is limited to 300 units.
While the key elements remain unchanged, Project Z brings unexpected novelty at the same time every year. In the Z14 plan, the retrograde second hand has a range of 30 seconds, and the new hollow structure and dominant gray palette (embellished by blue shades) become its hallmark.
Power of the case
The Z14 case is characterized not only by its material Zalium, but also by its shape, lugs, crown and iconic arch, reminiscent of the entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue flagship salon.
Different from previous years, this year’s watch case adopts a chamfered bezel and arched design to pay tribute to the beveled decoration on the dial.
The thickness of this discounted cheap men watches case is 10.7 mm, which successfully combines technical watchmaking with ergonomics. The 42.2 mm diameter case has no overhangs or extra parts, and it strikes a perfect balance between complexity and comfort.
The Z14 project dial can be used as a performance space to tell the story of watchmaking with excellent visual support. Technology, art and structural principles work together to create the unique personality of this timepiece, which is characterized by strong colors and surface treatments as well as shapes, angles and depth.
Harry Winston (Harry Winston) blue is used for the pointer and index finger on the off-center counter at noon, and the second bow of 120 degrees (from 0 to 30 seconds). The second hand uses red, while gray occupies the rest of the dial, because black emphasizes dynamic details and layers. Black appears in the grid of the off-center dial, which is displayed in a new color. Fresh designs have horizontal and vertical sections, which can work together to create linear images.
The unique dial is composed of platform, facet, bevel, slope and angle. All these elements are combined in a hollow structure, floating above the movement, visible and iconic radiant Geneva corrugated finish. The Z14 project has polished, polished, recessed and almost inestimable number of angles, lifelike.
Behind the dial is the HW2202 caliber. It is a 4hz engine base with 65 hours of power. Its power comes from a hollowed-out platinum rotor. The uniformity of the rotor is due to the flat silicon balance spring.
The spotlight shines on the complications, decentering the hours and minutes, and has a retrograde seconds hand. After 30 seconds, the red second hand immediately returned due to a system with a snail-shaped cam and return spring. The mechanical principle of the retrograde second hand is visible behind its counter. Blue (a brand color) also appears on rubber bracelets, which have a structure similar to textile bracelets.
The Z14 project is fascinating, full of deception and entertainment. Overlapping line segments, arcs and colors all have technical and aesthetic missions. By relentlessly pushing the logic of eccentricity and level, Harry Winston’s Project Z14 reached new heights. 2020 best replica watches
