The “keep it simple” mantra doesn’t seem to apply to watchmakers. The more complex they can make a watch’s movements and mechanics, the more impressive their creations seem. And Harry Wintson’s new Opus 12 is nothing short of a masterpiece.
Instead of hands pointing at numbers on the Opus 12′s face, the watch uses a series of spinning markers to indicate the current time. The markers — 12 in total — are positioned at the five-minute marks in long and short pairs that distinguish between the hour and minutes. And each one flips to reveal a metallic blue finish which is how the wearer actually reads the time.
