The various lines of Harry Winston watches are like a museum of unique and artistic watchmaking. Imagine yourself walking through a gallery of striking jeweled sculptures, each of which can tell time with great precision. Some of the most innovative minds in the field of watch design have produced their finest luxury timepieces for Harry Winston watches, using intricate structures of precious stones and metals in new concepts for displaying time.
While anything approaching a comprehensive description of the Harry Winston watches would fill a book or two, a quick glance over the selection reveals a few highlights.
Graceful lines and cool, sparkling diamonds characterize the Talk to Me series of Harry Winston watches. These luxury timepieces have elliptical faces that are slightly curved to fit the arm’‘s natural contour. Wide borders set with stunning white diamonds, creating a radiating pattern similar to a sunburst, surround the clock face. The watches of the line explore this design in several slight variations, some with simple, unadorned faces and others with more jewels in different configurations.
The Ocean line of Harry Winston watches is composed of elegant, masculine watches originally designed for divers. Broad borders of rose or white gold surround multiple dials designed for style and maximum legibility. The visible tourbillons, which are such a characteristic part of many Harry Winston watches, are present on many of these luxury timepieces. Some models display two time zones while others have chronograph functions and counters for periods of 12 and 30 minutes. There is also an Ocean Ladies’‘ line using the same great design elements with a bit more flash.
On the line called High Complication, you would expect the designers of Harry Winston watches to go all-out on interesting and unique designs. You certainly would not be disappointed, as this line is full of glittering tourbillons, excenter dials and partial cutaway faces. For those who think the traditional is boring, these luxury timepieces are a welcome departure. The pinnacle of the collection is the Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon, whose face is a whirling ballet of tiny, precise parts. The double tourbillon mechanisms are extremely thin and light, allowing a movement that is both precise and fascinating.
In the Jewels line of Harry Winston watches, the bar of opulence is raised to unprecedented heights. Harry Winston was a jeweler first and a watchmaker second, and that is nowhere more obvious than in this line of glittering luxury timepieces. All of these luxury timepieces are made entirely of white diamonds, including the face, body and band.
