Now part of the mighty Swatch Group, Harry Winston explores its creativity with new designs which pair two iconic motifs, both symbolizing femininity in their own unique way – lace and mother-of-pearl.
Precious and evanescent, lace symbolizes enduring time, as its creation requires long, patient hours of craftsmanship. For Harry Winston, this delicate design was a natural companion for mother-of-pearl, regarded as a symbol of tenderness and purity.
This year, the House chose mother-of-pearl to adorn the dials of its ladies’ watches and applied the full force of its jewelry expertise to its treatment. The result is a striking design, and one that was difficult to create in light of the extreme fragility of the material.
Premier Lace 31mm features a selection of mother-of-pearl colors. Each shade is carefully selected and studied. Every last reflection is carefully scrutinized, ensuring that each creation will possess a glorious glow, fascinating and mysterious, with its shimmering white mother-of-pearl lace bold against a black sunburst dial.
The model is also available in more romantic tones – pink mother-of-pearl against a Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial. The elegant motif is made from mother-of-pearl measuring just 0.15 mm thick. The House’s complex workmanship creates arabesques of light and shade. 63 brilliant-cut diamonds are featured across the bezel and arches, accentuating the lines of these two creations. With these two new models, Harry Winston revives the nature of dainty proportions and rich ornamentation, both symbols of elegance and finesse.
