Harry Winston Ocean Chronograph Automatic 36mm

Harry Winston Ocean Chronograph Automatic 36mm more feminine and sportier Ocean Chronograph Automatic 36mm models from its flagship Ocean Collection. Dedicated to those feminine hearts who desire to wear mechanical chronograph watches with a prestigious movement ticking inside, the Ocean Chronograph Automatic 36mm is a high performance yet delicate sports watch that now enriches Harry Winston’s ladies watch collection.

The sporty nature of the Ocean Chronograph Automatic 36mm is evident in its styling and details. The Ocean case returns to its original purpose: technical sophistication linked to underwater sports. The 36 mm case is both assertive and feminine. It boasts several distinctive features: characteristic facetted lugs, a sloping bezel, and of course, the three Harry Winston arches at 3 o’clock, inspired by the façade of Harry Winston’s New York flagship salon. The Ocean Chronograph’s most dynamic feature is its sunburst, silver-toned dial. It is marked with openings and engravings, a background for two counters. They are respectively placed at 3 and 9 o’clock, above the 6 o’clock running indicator. It is shaped like a Shuriken, a star with whirling arms that is an integral part of the Ocean identity.
The HW3204 automatic chronograph movement is visible through a transparent case back, along with its rose gold oscillating weight, featuring a powerful geometric motif. This is the component that winds the movement. It is regulated by a silicon balance spring– a material endowed with ideal properties to achieve chronometer-worthy rating precision. True to the spirit of haute horlogerie, the movement is adorned with meticulous finishes: circular Côtes de Genève, circular graining, rhodium plating and chamfering. The chronograph pushers are especially soft and allow for smooth operation, a testament to the House’s close attention to detail.

Ocean Chronograph exudes femininity, which is absolutely compatible with the strength of a mechanical, sporty model. The 36 mm case is available in white or rose gold. More precious interpretations feature 33 brilliant-cut diamonds on its bezel, lugs and arches, a tribute to Mr. Winston’s reputation as the “King of Diamonds.”These gem-set models feature 1.55 carats of diamonds on the case, complemented by .04 carats of diamonds on the buckle.
