Limited edition Harry Winston timepiece features an intricate design, pivoting hands and precious jewels.

The Harry Winston Opus XIII watch throws out conventional rules of timekeeping and takes on a new approach that involves disappearing parts instead.

It's a manual-winding watch with a 35-hour power reserve that's made of 364 components and 242 jewels. For instance, each pivoting minute hand is held in place by a steel shaft, which in turn is held in place by two ruby bearings. The watch casing is 18K white gold and a sapphire-crystal window on the rear offers a look at the intricate inner workings of the watch.
