Earlier today I’ve shared an awesome watch with the first ever solar-powered GPS technology, now I have another cool new watch design called Opus 12, with rather a complicated way of showing the time. This watch doesn’t use clock-hands or numbers to show the time, instead it has a 12 spinning double-sided markers with long and short hands, resembling the hours and minutes on the watch.
According to the official website the Opus 12 works like this: its hands changing the guard every five minutes. At each change of the hour, the movement executes a very elaborate drill exercise by the successive rotation of the hands. Below the retrograde indication, a floating small seconds hand graduated on a translucent ring passes above a power-reserve indicator.
Opus 12 watch is going to be a limited edition, because the maker Harry Winston only planning on making 120 pieces of these watches. Considering the limited availability, price would be much more expensive than an ordinary watch. Check out the video below to see an amazing demonstration of how this watch gets build up in 3D.
