Harry Winston Midnight Date Moonphase Automatic 42mm

This new model from Harry Winston’s Midnight Collection features three arches, a tribute to the House’s heritage and New York flagship salon. It also has a date indicator and a moon display, offering precise information in the most sophisticated fashion.

Off-setting its date and complications, is an aesthetic decision embedded in Harry Winston’s design DNA. The Midnight Date Moonphase reinterprets the House’s signature elements and functions with excentered Hours and Minutes, date, and moon-phase counters, so subtle that they appear to melt into the dial.
The dial, silver in tone, features a sunburst finish that surrounds the Hours and Minutes function. The date is delicately housed in a light and recessed zone to ensure that the numerals stand out. Harry Winston revisits the moonphase with renewed intensity. Drawing inspiration from its real life counterpart, the moon disk features a deliberately rough and textured appearance. Furthermore, with its rich, deep, metallic blue coloring, Harry Winston designers expertly capture the magic of the moon.

This new creation is driven by a mechanical automatic movement, visible through the open case back. The exposed white gold oscillating weight features haute horlogerie finishes, including Côtes de Genève and circular graining. The silicon balance spring guarantees absolute precision, beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The Midnight Date Moonphase has a 42 mm-diameter case and is available in 18-carat white or rose gold.
