The Swiss brand released a commemorative watch named Midnight Tourbillon GMT Limited Edition Geneva as part of the celebrations for the opening of a new Harry Winston salon at Geneva. The Harry Winston watch is a novel self-winding mechanical timepiece with tourbillon complications and a second time zone. It also has a huge 110 hour power reserve.

Harry Winston only released 5 of these high-end watches.
