Baselworld is one of those occasions when renowned brands try to outdo each other by presenting some of their finest creations ever. While Blancpain wooed the lovers of fine watchmaking and Chinese zodiac followers with the traditional Chinese calendar timepiece, Harry Winston chose to appeal to watch lovers’ artistic side with the exquisite Premier Feathers collection of timepieces. Unveiled at Baselworld, these timepieces are the perfect mix of fine marquetry and feather art. With their feminine charm, they definitely do not fail to woo the many luxury watches loving women.
Designed to adorn the wrist of only those women who have a taste for the most unique and finest things, these timepieces are truly extraordinary. Nelly Saunier takes credit for the uniquely feathered dials created using only ethically sourced from species raised specifically for this purpose. The feather dial then unites with Cluster, the three-dimensional technique invented by Harry Winston himself, which allows for the asymmetrical setting of pear, brilliant, and marquise-cut stones. A beautiful amalgamation of feathers and brilliantly cut stones, this collection is simply a class apart.
The timepieces in the collection all boast of the quartz movements, cases of 18k white or rose gold set with 66 brilliant-cut diamonds at 1.45ct, and brilliant-cut diamond crown. The feather dials are available in a choice of feathers ranging from silver pheasant feathers, Lady Amherst pheasant feathers, peacock feathers, or delicate ring-necked pheasant feathers. Adding the finishing touches to every timepiece of this collection is a satin strap with an 18k white or rose gold buckle set with 29 brilliant-cut diamonds.
Masterpieces indeed, these timepieces are truly pieces of functional art.
