Speaking about the Histoire de Tourbillon watches, Harry Winston first released the Histoire de Tourbillon 1 watch back in year 2009, which envisioned a modern interpretation of the tourbillon, through innovative materials and a highly sophisticated mechanism.

Further, the caseback is partially open, that too in a mix of DLC-finished Zalium and white gold, and the crown is in white gold with rubber grip.
The three-dimensional dial displays hours, minutes, power reserve and a 300-second indicator on the tourbillon.
