You can wear timepieces like fine jewelry

By

No need to choose between style and substance—Harry Winston’s watches have both in abundance.

Known for its iconic jewelry, the luxury brand continues to transform diamonds into modern works of art. With the same commitment to using the world’s finest gemstones and high-quality craftsmanship, Harry Winston, from its earliest watch designs in 1989 to its latest creations, reminds women that time remains infinitely precious.

The Premier Ladies collection reinterprets its first design, which was launched in 1995 with its revolutionary Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar.

The current style has a more modern 36-mm case, a delicate mother-of-pearl dial in subtly graded champagne or opaline white tints, a satin strap or a gold bracelet (either embellished or unadorned), and 12 diamonds (one for each hour), evoking the brand’s vision: “a good diamond, however small, is a possession to be prized for generations.”

Horological tradition

Offset dials, retrograde indications, and a multi-layered effect finished off with Harry Winston’s trademark three arches also reflect the brand’s horological tradition.

Living up to its progenitor’s dedication to fine artistry, Harry Winston’s timepieces feature the same quality of diamonds as in its jewelry. Diamonds that make the cut must not only be of D, E or F color and greater than VS2 clarity, but must also pass strict quality assurance criteria that go far beyond the four Cs: carat weight, clarity, color, and cut.

Each diamond comes with a certificate from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), and is reviewed and graded a second time by Harry Winston’s in-house team of expert gemologists, ensuring the diamond’s quality.

Harry Winston also commemorates New York City, where it first opened its doors, with the Avenue collection. Inspired by the iconic architecture of “The Big Apple” and the vibrancy of Manhattan, the elegant timepiece features rectangular shapes adorned with Harry Winston’s arch motif (reminiscent of the brand’s flagship salon on Fifth Avenue), a dainty guilloche design, and a mother-of-pearl dial.

Harry Winston’s contemporary creations show that while the brand has its eye trained on the future, it will always be rooted in what makes it Harry Winston: its diamond-driven style coupled with its old-world artistry.

Harry Winston is available at Adora, 3/F, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
