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, 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 – one that was difficult to create in light of the extreme fragility of the material.
Mother-of-pearl lace, the ultimate challenge
Premier Lace 31mm features an expert 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.
Harry Winston’s Premier Lace 31mm is fascinating and mysterious, with its shimmering white mother-of-pearl lace bold against a black sunburst dial. This 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 unbelievably complex workmanship creates arabesques of light and shade. 63 brilliant-cut diamonds blossom across the bezel and arches, perfectly accentuating the voluptuous lines of these two creations.
With these two new models, Harry Winston revives the seductive nature of dainty proportions and rich ornamentation, both symbols of elegance and finesse. The new 31 mm case of the Premier Lace showcases the House’s technical sophistication and artistry.
