The Earth’s satellite takes pride of place at the centre of the Premier Moon Phase 36mm, hidden behind a delicate white mother-of-pearl lattice. A waking dream.

The Premier Moon Phase 36mm captures the serene beauty of the celestial sky, with a mesmerizing moon that appears to travel across the horizon, before finding its way behind a white mother-of-pearl design, signifying the end of the lunar cycle.

The lunar cycle, hours, minutes and date display are expertly powered by the HW5201 quartz movement, exclusive to Harry Winston. The migration of the moon is visible through a crescent-shaped opening, while the hour and minutes are indicated by elegant, bevelled hands. At 6 o’clock, an open circle, adorned with a yellow gold border, reveals the date.

The face of the Premier Moon Phase 36mm uses different artistic techniques and materials to achieve a three-dimensional aesthetic, including carefully selected mother-of-pearl, contrasting colours, and expertly placed design accents.

In order to create a unique and graceful dial, two shades of mother-of-pearl were used. The first, a pure white, alludes to daylight, while the second, a pearl blue, recalls the deep blue of the evening sky.

The contrasting colours are meant to guide the eye to the heart of the timepiece, where the moon phase is brilliantly displayed.

Gold cabochons minute markers, bring the dial to life, while the iconic hallmark for the brand – the emerald-shaped logo – stands watch at 12 o’clock. 18 brilliant-cut diamonds rest at 6 o’clock, while 12 brilliant-cut diamonds line the perimeter, serving as hour markers. Together with those on the bezel, arches and buckle, the timepiece offers 2.58 carats of the world’s most magnificent diamonds, which are perfectly complemented by the 36mm 18K rose gold case and the iridescent accents on the white alligator strap.
