BASEL, SWITZERLAND (March 18, 2016) – Harry Winston is pleased to unveil its latest watch creations at Baselworld 2016, giving life to timepieces that are both poetic and sophisticated, and combine the top luxury watch skills and expertise of the Brand's designers and craftsmen.
Since its inception in 1989, the Premier collection has embodied the quintessential watchmaking world of Harry Winston. With the Premier Moon Phase 36mm, the company reveals a refined piece that combines a delicate openwork mother-of-pearl design and the moon phase complication.
This collection of extraordinary technical craftsmanship is now enhanced by the Premier Precious Weaving Automatic 36mm. Four creations rely on a rare and exceptional Japanese weaving technique, where gold wire is intertwined with the delicate sheen of natural mother-of-pearl, to create a unique textile work of dazzling beauty.
True to the manner in which Mr. Winston looked to the beauty of nature for his creations, the Premier Pearly Lace Automatic 36 mm brings designs of great femininity to the collection, inspired by the delicacy of feminine lace, which floats on a sea of iridescent mother-of-pearl.
Continuing a long line of exceptional timepieces, Project Z returns this year with a light, technical, and stunning piece. Project Z10 highlights a double retrograde display in an ultra-light setting and adopts a cutting-edge mechanical aesthetic, asserting its highly technical nature, but still designed for action and everyday life.
For the company's founder, the emerald cut was the most elegant and flattering shape to enhance the beauty of a gemstone. This year, it inspires the sophisticated design of the case of the new Harry Winston collection: the Harry Winston Emerald Collection, a new line of classic and contemporary timepieces. Available in white gold with a blue lacquered dial or in rose gold with a satin sunburst dial, Harry Winston Emerald comes with either a satin double tour strap in the same color as the dial, or an elegant Milanese strap in white gold or rose gold, which is a new feature for Harry Winston.
As the "King of Diamonds", Harry Winston is proud to present the Twist Automatic, a superb fine jewelry timepiece inspired by one of the company's iconic straps. The creation of this gorgeous piece with captivating shapes of rubies and diamonds is a tribute to Mr. Winston, who always found inspiration in nature, which he considered a constant source of wonder.
Rosebud Heart by Harry Winston offers a romantic way to wear time. Versatile and elegant, this piece can be worn as a necklace or traditionally on the wrist.
A fine jewelry masterpiece, My Precious Time by Harry Winston is an exquisite brooch with the Harry Winston Art Deco signature that offers a new feminine way of telling time. At the touch of a diamond, the secret timepiece is revealed.
This year is also an opportunity for the brand to reveal The New York Companion by Harry Winston: the first fine jewelry evening bag with a precious secret watch created by the Brand. Inspired by the vibrant energy of the city that never sleeps, this fine jewelry piece sparkles with one thousand diamonds and precious stones in a compelling composition that evokes the New York skyline and the lights of Broadway.
After exploring all the variants of the tourbillon – bi-axial, tri-axial, double, or coupled with a carrousel – Harry Winston has again surpassed the technical limits for the seventh edition of the Histoire de Tourbillon; in an incredible spectacle, the Histoire de Tourbillon 7 reveals two bi-axial tourbillons that dance and dialogue with time.
The new products presented this year highlight the brand's timeless tradition of uncompromising quality and the spirit of excellence that was originally instilled by its founder.
