Harry Winston brand watch , a master at haute-art dials, turns to the rare art of weaving for some of its new fabric-inspired Premier watches. The Premier Precious Weaving Automatic 36mm watches feature hand-woven dials created using a rare Japanese technique. The new 36mm automatic Premier Precious Weaving watches (there are four versions) feature hand-crafted dials that weave silk threads, as well as threads of gold with mother of pearl for a stunning masterpiece.
The Histoire de Tourbillon series is going to get Harry Winston in trouble. Seeing how every iteration of this series of incredible legacy watches has gotten exponentially more and more complex every year, we’re starting to wonder how on Earth will they be able to deliver something that can up the ante from the previous version. Still, it doesn’t look like 2016 will be the year the Histoire De Tourbillon plateaued, with the introduction of the downright galactic Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 7 for Baselworld.
So how, exactly, does one go about topping 2015’s eye-watering, $600,000 Tourbillon 6, which marveled with nearly 700 parts, two time indicators, an 80-hour power reserve, and a tri-axial tourbillon – all housed in a titanic 55mm case? Easy. You double down with not one, but two bi-axial tourbillons married by a spherical differential that averages their behavioral patterns relative to position and gravity to yield a spectacular, synchronous ballet with time. Easy, right?
In honor of its second year of partnership with amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, jeweler/watchmaker Harry Winston has announced the launch of the Countdown to a Cure Timepiece. Designed exclusively for amfAR’s “Countdown to a Cure” campaign, this limited-edition watch (20 each of the men’s and ladies’ models), is the first official product to benefit amfAR’s efforts to develop the scientific basis of a cure for HIV by 2020.
It’s probably quite a good sign when a watch appears both familiar and radical in the same glance. The overall sense I get from the Harry Winston Avenue Dual Time Automatic watch is that it slots neatly into the category of Art Deco masterpiece, but under further scrutiny, each of the elements presents an off-kilter styling that seems completely modern. Deco-inspired pieces have always benefited from the cleanliness of their parent principle. Basically, Art Deco is never as overtly passé as many other epochal styles because it seems such bold, repeating patterns make sense to our brains.
This watch might not be too everybody’s taste, no doubt about it. However, we have to recognize real strong and bold design, unique on its own – something even more surprising from a large brand, owned by the largest group of the Swiss watchmaking industry, Swatch. Already an impressive watch in its classical edition, Harry Winston transforms the Ocean into an even bolder creation with a unique piece exhibiting the brand’s signature colour and a newly design dial. Here is the Unique Harry Winston Ocean Dual Time Retrograde for Only Watch 2015.
