Swiss luxury watch brand Harry Winston presents the Premier Shinde Automatic 36mm as a tribute to Ambaji V. Shinde, the iconic designer of the world renowned jewellery house established by Harry Winston.
In 1955, Harry Winston met Ambaji V. Shinde, whom he used to call the gem behind the gems, during a trip to Bombay, and immediately recognized the similarities in their passion for creativity and design. Mr. Shinde became the iconic designer of the House, infusing Harry Winston treasures with his extraordinarily inventive touch.
The three Premier Shinde models are inspired by archival records of Mr. Shinde’s jewelry creations. They reinterpret two of his necklace designs – including the famous “Star of the Desert” – and a tiara, all masterpieces and an important part of the history of the House.
Harry Winston creates a series of enchanting dials enhanced with gold engraving, continuing its sacred tradition of ornamentation. The dials of the Premier Shinde models are made of Grand Feu enamel, a supremely demanding material. The enamel is fired at temperatures between 800 and 900°C, a temperature so extreme that it can jeopardize the work done up until that point. The studied firing operation reveals the beauty and depth of the colours. Harry Winston chose to pair Grand Feu enamel with a touch of gold, creating a multi-layered effect. The eye immediately recognizes the jewelry motif and marquise-cut stones – from one to eight – depending on the model. Driven by a mechanical automatic movement, the timepiece is equipped with a silicon balance-spring.
