The Premier Delicate Silk Automatic 36mm timepieces explore the origins of luxury and fuse together the ancient art of silk weaving and embossing, with a dash of noble inspiration from Europe’s royal houses.
Harry Winston’s constant exploration in the field of rare artistic crafts has resulted in the creation of two singular dials for the Premier Collection. An inimitable luxury product made from embossed raw silk, the Premier Delicate Silk Automatic 36mm models mark, for the first time, the artistic marriage of silk and the art of embossing.
A case of distinction
Since its debut in 1989, Harry Winston’s Premier Timepiece Collection has been the designated series to showcase various artistic forms. Instantly recognizable by the distinctive diamond-set lugs that attach the case to the bracelet and replicate the shape of the arched entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon, the Premier Delicate Silk Automatic 36mm cases will be presented in 18-karat white and rose gold with 57 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel and lugs.
The floral motif embossed on the white and pink silk dials will be available in 36mm white and rose gold cases respectively, and will feature 12 diamond hour markers. The star-shaped motif embossed on the silvery grey and the royal red silk dials will also be presented in 36mm white and rose gold cases.
A sophisticated mechanical movement
The Premier Delicate Silk Automatic 36mm is powered by a high-end Swiss automatic movement. Equipped with the latest technology - a flat silicon balance spring – the movement is designed to keep impeccable time that is on par with the regal beauty of the dial. True to all Harry Winston designs, this timepiece features a rose gold rotor and elegant finishes on the movement, including circular Côtes de Genève motifs, rhodium plating and circular graining that can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.
Presented on satin straps, the gold ardillon buckles are also set with 17 brilliant-cut diamonds. Each model is a limited edition of 30 pieces.
