Is it possible to reinvent a Jewel like Harry Winston? It is! The task was to stay Harry Winston and still be new and creative. What I have seen in Basel pleased me.

Harry Winston Emerald timepiece
The Harry Winston Emerald timepiece is presented in white gold with a blue lacquered dial and is also available in rose gold with a snowy white satin sunburst dial. Both models come on a choice of double tour satin straps that match the color theme of the dial, or on elegant rose or white gold Milanese bracelets, a novelty for the House of Harry Winston. The exquisite craftsmanship behind the fine Milanese mesh straps is translated into a supple, pliant bracelet that sits beautifully on the wrist…
Harry Winston Premier Moon Phase 36mm
The Harry Winston 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.
Harry Winston Premier Precious Weaving Automatic 36mm
This is a rare technique from Japan …
A year and a half of creative reflection and development were invested in the project which marks the first time this technique of weaving silk with mother-of-pearl has been used to create a miniature canvas for a timepiece. The beauty of combining organic material from the sea (mother-of-pearl) and the land (silkworms), woven together on a miniature handloom to create a tapestry that will not fade over time.
With its four artistic crafts creations, the Premier Precious Weaving Automatic 36mm is the fruit of a rare Japanese weaving technique in which threads of gold are woven with slivers of natural mother-of-pearl to create a unique tapestry of shimmering beauty. Derived from the ancestral Japanese technique of Raden – involving the application of shells onto the surface of wood or lacquered objects – this particular decorative art uses silk thread and wafer-thin slivers of natural mother-of-pearl to weave a supple fabric that scintillates with a light of its own.
Rosebud Heart by Harry Winston
Versatility is at the heart of this new high jewelry timepiece for women, which can be worn around the neck as a pendant or on the wrist. The marriage of 86 brilliant-cut diamonds with a heart-shaped case is the epitome of romance and everything about this delightful creation is a declaration of love.
The New York Companion by Harry Winston
This stunning three-in-one creation, offering women a high jewelry evening bag with a timepiece and vanity mirror, captures the intrinsic spirit of Harry Winston’s New York universe and reflects his passion for luxury and impeccable quality. Scintillating with 36.67 carats of diamonds, 3.22 carats of emeralds and 1.62 carats of rubies, this object of desire is the ultimate high jewelry companion for a night on the town.
A New York minute – and hour … The black onyx crown culminating the diamond skyscraper features the hallmark Harry Winston emerald-cut and hides a precious secret. By swiveling the black onyx cover a diminutive timepiece is revealed allowing women to consult the time with absolute discretion. The black onyx dial is offset with a bezel enhanced with diamonds sparkling like freshly fallen snow.
Designed to fit in the palm of your hand, the 18 carat white gold case is coated with glossy black lacquer to offset the magnificent gemstones that decorate the high jewelry clutch. A pompon in the center of the precious evening bag, fashioned like a New York skyscraper, sparkles with the light of 58 white baguette-cut diamonds and towers over a dynamic cityscape of avenues and streets intersected by flashes of red and green lights. The glowing red lights come to life with 8 baguette-cut rubies while the patches of green scintillate with 21 baguette-cut emeralds. To recreate the white lights of the city, a total of 486 diamonds combined with lustrous mother-of-pearl work their magic.
WOW, simply stunning !!!!
