This Harry Winston Opus XIV is what you get when a man like CEO Max Büsser gives a clean canvas and a blank check to an innovative, independent watch maker. After 14 years of doing so – hence the XIV – the Opus timepiece has come to signify all that is great and potentially ground-breaking about each release. This year’s release, the Harry Winston Opus XIV, of course, doesn’t disappoint; boasting a jukebox-inspired design that not only looks the part, but moves like one, too. With the push of a dial, as seen in the video below, you can drop one of the four discs – a mini record – onto a playing disk, further amplifying the colors, flair, and presentation of the mid-20th century diner-like design. The Opus XIV itself is large, measuring 54.70mm x 21.9mm, constructed of white-gold with date, time, and GMT functionality comprising the other three discs on the left side. Understandably, only 50 of these timepieces will be released, each retailing for a mind-boggling $430,000 USD.
