What can we say about Harry Winston and his (magnum) opus? As time goes on the opus brand adapts to the climate, which almost makes these watches a metaphor for life itself. Therefore the new opus eleven is the past, present and the future all rolled into one. Boy is it elegant and it would have to be for the $250,000 asking price – too much for an item that falls under “mens accessories?”. Designed by the distinguished Denis Giguet of MCT, the opus eleven is downright revolutionary and one does wonder where they will take it from here.
The many faces of the Opus Eleven

Most of the 566 parts can actually be seen in the main face and the state of the art dial constantly does its level best to confound as it detonates and arranges itself every hour. Perhaps this is the main reason for the decadent price tag, to ensure that those who buy it know what they’re letting themselves in for.
The Opus eleven seducing a wrist

Then again, perhaps it’s because of the 18k white gold and sapphire crystal that are just begging to be noticed. To seal the deal this watch is wrapped up nicely in gold casing that is waiting to seduce your wrist so if you have that kind of money and you want to dazzle others with your time telling ability (who are you kidding) then I suggest the Harry Winston Opus Eleven is for you.
