Harry Winston presents the Premier Moon Phase 36 mm, a poetic and surprising timepiece. Whereas in the majority of moon-phase mechanisms, the moon disappears completely before beginning a new cycle, here the golden moon takes cover behind a delicate mother-of-pearl lattice, hidden but not completely out of sight. This supremely elegant design echoes the light and shade cast between Earth and the sun in a completely unprecedented manner. The deep blue mother-of-pearl sky forms an eloquent contrast with the immaculate white mother-of-pearl dial, a composition that irresistibly draws the eye to the centre of the watch. Bringing this magical tableau to life, 18 brilliant-cut diamonds are set just above the date at 6 o’clock, like a sunbeam reflecting the halo of precious stones that adorn the dial, bezel, arches and buckle. Together they form a dazzling ensemble of 104 diamonds for 2.58 carats.
Quartz, HW5201 calibre.
