Movado Museum Classic, Edition 2017

One of the world’s premier watchmakers and renowned for its modern design aesthetic, Movado is the hallmark of some of the most famous timepieces ever created, most notably, the Movado Museum® Watch.

Designed in 1947 by Bauhaus-influenced artist Nathan George Horwitt, the watch dial defined by a solitary dot at 12, symbolizing the sun at high noon, has been acclaimed for purity of design unrivaled in the history of time-keeping. When Horwitt’s dial was selected for the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1960, it became the first watch dial ever awarded this distinction. Known today as the Movado Museum Watch, this legendary dial is regarded as an icon of Modernism.
For 2017, Movado presents three sophisticated additions to its signature Museum® Classic watch collection. Crafted in solid stainless steel or yellow gold PVD-finished steel, the two new men’s watches feature round polished 40 mm cases, 7.40 mm deep. The ladies model is elegantly understated fashioned in polished yellow gold PVD-finished steel with a 28 mm case, 6.05 mm deep.
Cool and clean, the men’s stainless steel version has a simple blue lacquer Museum dial detailed with elegant silver-toned dauphine hour and minute hands, Movado’s signature concave dot at 12 o’clock and silver-toned metallic printing.

Simply sophisticated, the yellow gold PVD-finished models feature iconic black dials with yellow gold-toned accents and lettering. All three new watches are presented on soft black textured calfskin straps finished with a matching stainless steel or yellow gold PVD-finished tongue buckle. Water-resistant to 3 ATM / 30 meters.

Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator Bi-Colour Version

In the new bicolour version of Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator, stainless steel and red gold form an elegant bond together. The Flying Regulator in its stainless steel case just about beams with its red gold accents: Both the dominantly designed, polished bezel and its typical onion-shape crown are made of solid, 18-karat red gold.
Gold-plated screws, hands and bases skillfully continue the theme on the dial. The lower level of the dial features the characteristic guilloche design specially developed in the studios of the House of Chronoswiss. Additional excitement is lent to the guilloche pattern through the galvanization, which casts it in a dark night blue.

Corum Bubble Booba

By breaking with the codes of luxury watchmaking, Corum has made Bubble a unique model that has become a legend since the very first edition in the 2000s. The brand has teamed up with a number of artists and given them carte blanche to reinterpret the piece and create their very own edition. It’s now the turn of French-Senegalese rapper and entrepreneur Booba to invent his own models and create an exclusive edition.

Thanks to this creativity, Booba and Corum are presenting not one, not two, but three Bubblesque models in several different versions. The dial of the first model features the cover of the rapper’s eighth album, Nero Nemesis, released in 2015.

For the other two models, Corum chose to call on the talent and creativity of the students of the La Chaux-de-Fonds School of Applied Arts (EAA). The creative style is therefore in perfect harmony with the rapper, the result of collaboration between Booba, the EAA and Polish designer Kamil Borowski. This is joined by a skull under the word “Kopp”, the rapper’s nickname.
Symbols of their time, Booba and the Bubble have constantly moved forward and dared to assert their creative differences. By uniting an audience from seemingly disconnected generations, origins and backgrounds, they have become standard-bearers for a new vision of the future by taking possession of it.
This drive and need to move forward characterise the Bubble spirit. It is this same power that makes Booba one of the most important figures in francophone rap.

About Booba
Driven by an independent mindset since his debut with the group Lunatic, Booba has constantly renewed and reinvented himself, as shown by his recent hit DKR. “I have total freedom with Corum. I would have never been able to work with them if they had wanted to restrict me.” It was this mentality that also led him to found the successful label 92i, the Ünkut clothing line and the OKLM media network (website, radio and TV).

Corum Bubble 42 Juliette Jourdain

Corum has partnered with young photographer Juliette Jourdain to realize a new Bubblesque creation to the Swiss watch brand’s iconic Bubble watch collection.

Between the eccentricity and captivating creativity of the young photographer and the legendary, effervescent Bubble, this is an obvious partnership. Once again, Juliette enthrals us with her unbridled inventive spirit, her boundless imagination and her ability to come up with equally wonderful and attractive characters and skilfully immortalise them on paper. Whether staging herself or calling on models, her portraits are fascinating and leave us in awe of her creative world.  The new Bubble, covered by its traditional, timeless sapphire dome, charms us with its pure colours.
The dial depicts a self portrait of the talented photographer, showcasing her keen artistic flair.  The portrait is breathtaking – it exudes purity with her intense eyes and delicately defined features. On the dial, raised crystalline diamond drops run down the young woman’s face. Devoid of numerals and markers and featuring only very discreet hands, this highly refined Bubble is nonetheless captivating.

The pure white vulcanised rubber strap forms a delicate contrast with the metallic grey of the stainless steel. 

Launched in 2000, Corum’s Bubble – now a Swiss watchmaking icon – has injected a wave of fun and youthfulness into the La Chaux-de-Fonds watch brand for almost 20 years, while proudly preserving its innovative spirit.

About Juliette Jourdain
26-year-old Juliette Jourdain is a young Paris-based photographer who holds a degree from the EFET School of photography. She first ventured into the vast and abstract world of art at a very young age through drawing and painting. She then went on to specialise in photography, which brought together her various passions.  Drawing her inspiration from her own imagination, she takes photographs like she would paint a canvas to depict her dream world. Expressing a primarily illustrative eccentric vision, her portraits – for the most part self portraits – deal with creating characters in the fashion world.

Corum Golden Bridge Stream Limited Edition

The Golden Bridge is being reinvented in 2017 to pay homage to the ‘bridge’ that crosses it. As in architecture, the structure stands out by virtue of both its linear design and its curves and arches. The new Golden Bridge Stream adopts the Art Deco codes of the Rectangle model and incorporates an automatic movement.

To create these delicate intersecting curves, Corum chose to draw inspiration from a major current in contemporary architecture: streamlining. Spanning the 1930s to the 1960s, it originated in the United States at the same time as objects began to be mass-produced. The style is distinguished by its flowing, extremely dynamic curves.
The Golden Bridge Stream draws on this parallel today. After it was first presented in 1980, the Golden Bridge also dictated a new style. The watchmaking world was gripped by an aesthetic shift very similar to the spirit of streamlining: the ultimate fusion of shape and substance, where every last component becomes a determining part of the piece’s overall style.
Combining cutting-edge micromechanics and monumental architecture, its automatic baguette-shaped movement forms a symbolic bridge featuring decoration inspired by San Francisco's famous Golden Gate Bridge. The clear sapphire crystal reveals meticulous craftsmanship: a perfect miniaturisation of the structure of the Californian suspension bridge. Two gold models – one of which showcases a red lacquered microstructure – are available as very exclusive editions of 88 pieces.
With the Golden Bridge Stream, Corum is completing an ultimate exercise in style that is historically and aesthetically relevant. Made entirely from gold, the piece is powered by an automatic movement that is wound by two parallel linear weights. Spanning 42 mm, it presents carefully considered and balanced lines, be they straight or curved, long or broken, to create a unique architecture. The case of the Golden Bridge Stream highlights this balance by playing with the tensions between clean-cut edges, sharp horns and a curved sapphire crystal.

ANONIMO Militare Alpini Camouflage

In 2017, ANONIMO expands its Militare Alpini series with a new Camouflage chronograph timepiece. This new military edition in bronze, comes in two versions – either brown or khaki, with a play of light on the guilloche dial. Limited to only 97 copies, this watch has a solid titanium caseback which is decorated with a stylised profile, in relief, of the mythical mountain, the Matterhorn.
The military tone on tone in no way hinders the clear readability of the new Militare Alpini Camouflage. Supplied with either an olive green or a walnut brown leather strap, the hours, minutes, small seconds and chronograph functions are all overlaid on the guilloché dial with its camouflage pattern. Mountains, and in particular the Alps, remain the clear link between the brand’s Italian origins and its current home in Switzerland. Therefore, as a homage to this dual background, the breathtaking summit of the Matterhorn, (which, like ANONIMO, has one foot in Italy and the other in Switzerland) has been stamped in relief on the solid titanium back of the watch.
This chronograph model, powered by a Sellita SW300 automatic movement and a Dubois Dépraz 2035 chronograph module that has been exclusively developed for ANONIMO, has a power reserve of 42 hours. And as a nod to the brand itself, the counterweight of the seconds hand is the logo of ANONIMO.
The codes that have distinguished the Militares are still in evidence, with the crown at 12 o’clock and its patented protection system. The dial, which has been deliberately pared down, has the 12, 04 and 08 figures arranged in a triangle, a reminder of the “A” of ANONIMO. The sturdy 43.4 mm cushion case is the same for all the bronze Alpini versions. Bronze is the time honoured alloy used by the brand since the beginning and the expression of its Florentine craftsmanship, and ANONIMO is this year presenting the range in a new composition bathed in a subtle pink hue. A slow and progressive oxidisation process working on this alloy gives the watches a natural, and inimitable, patina over time – rendering the case both unique and classical. In addition to its resistance to wear and corrosion, bronze lives and evolves with the wearer, the very concept of an ANONIMO Camouflage watch.

Virile and functional at the same time, the ANONIMO Militare Alpini Camouflage is offered in two versions, both limited to only 97 pieces as a tribute to the year that ANONIMO was born 20 years ago.

Anonimo Vintage Militare, Re-Issue (Edition 2017)

Celebrating 20th anniversary this year, Anonimo is bringing out a reissue of its Vintage model of the Militare line. Same functions, same aesthetics but with just a subtle hint of modernity and elegance worthy of Italy, its country of origin, which will delight both connoisseurs and collectors.

With a timelessly elegant style, a cushioned case and its dial illustrated by Anonimo’s famous 12, 04 and 08 o’clock triangle, this vintage model expresses the very DNA of the Militare.
Almost identical in look to the original edition with the indication "VINTAGE" at 9 o’clock, while the red reminders of both the indexes and the 24 hour markers are recalled on the eggshell coloured dial. Just as on the original, the date window stays housed at 6 o'clock, an unusual display compared to today’s collection.

However, there is a modern wind blowing over this particular model. Unlike the first Militare, which wore its crown at 6 o'clock, the 2017 model places the crown at 12 o'clock, repeating the aesthetic code of pocket watches that runs through the current Militare collection. This improves the comfort for the wearer, as well as the guaranteed water-resistance of the casing.
Thanks to Anonimo’s patented design, the movable and discrete hinges protect the crown, nestling between the lugs of the case, from any unexpected mishandling. The initial indication "Handcrafted in Firenze" has now been replaced by "Swiss Made", respecting the new "Swissness" legislation which came into force at the beginning of this year.
Another improvement on the original VINTAGE model, this new timepiece’s automatic movement, on which “Anonimo” has been engraved on the oscillating weight, is visible through the watch caseback. This is another tribute to the brand’s historic watches as the first Anonimo watches also had see-through casebacks.

Sober and very legible with its polished bezel, this Militare VINTAGE reveals a new face of Anonimo on the occasion of its twentieth birthday and offers a promise of a future rich in innovation.

Doxa Diva Collection - Lady Bangle Watch

The lady bangle watch of the Diva Collection is an ideal example of DOXA’s passion to transform elegance into an outstanding exceptional watch. DOXA watches reflect and underline their wearer’s personality, subtly and gracefully since 128 years.

From the roaring 1920s to the post-war years, the form and designs of watches changed dramatically. Strongly influenced by the dominant artistic styles, the timepieces became more colourful, the materials richer, the style more extravagant, more fashionable. However, not only watches changed: the vibrant art movements also influenced advertising. DOXA’s billboards reflect the Art Deco style. G. Ducommun, founder of DOXA, developed strong, specific advertising for his products.

Even after the death of G. Ducommun in 1936, DOXA continued creating models influenced by the predominant artistic ideas. This great strategy allowed DOXA a very successful start into the second half of the century.

In 1939, DOXA designed the lady bangle watch for the successful and elegant lady. Using high quality materials in fanciful perfection, this adornment underlined the uniqueness of its wearer.
DOXA paid close attention to the ornaments seen on the watch of 1939 and re-construed them as well above and below the dial. The relaunch of DOXA’s celebrated bangle watch even sports the special polished section on the crystal. The mother-of-pearl coat on the dial gives the watch the sophisticated appearance it deserves. A Swiss quartz movement in the heart guarantees accuracy.

Manufactured in two different sizes, DOXA makes sure that this fashionable vintage watch fits on every woman’s wrist. Expertise in creating jewellery watches from the past till today, combined with modern technical competence, contemporary design and flair, DOXA has transformed this legendary lady’s watch into an avant-garde must-have.

Eberhard & Co. CHRONO 4 130 (Celebrating 130th Anniversary of Brand)

Swiss watch maker Eberhard & Co. celebrates its 130th anniversary and to mark this special occasion the traditional watch brand has created a commemorative version of its iconic CHRONO 4 watch line.
Founded by Georges-Lucien Eberhard in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1887, the traditional Swiss watch making house now celebrates 130 years of its special passion for an art made up of charm and precision, its uninterrupted history of taking up new challenges and its watches with timeless personality. The success of Eberhard & Co.’s creations spans the entire twentieth century, enabling it to file numerous patents which have consolidated its position among the aristocracy of luxury Swiss watchmaking. This innovative spirit has found expression in precious timepieces with high technical content which have marked important stages of development, particularly of the chronograph, among other timepieces.

1894 saw the creation of a pocket watch with an innovative patented setting system. 1905 was the year for a special watch with a patented new system for reading the hours and minutes. 1919 saw the launch of the era’s most advanced single button wrist chronograph, while 1921 produced a watch with a special patented device - “Calotte Patrouille” – protecting the movement from dust and moisture. In 1935 the Maison unveiled an unprecedented chronograph with two buttons for stop and restart without resetting, then in 1939 the “rattrapante”, or split-seconds, chronograph made its appearance, followed by the Extra-fort chronograph in the early 1940s.

1942 was the year of the “Magini System”, a split-seconds chronograph that was one of the protagonists of the Italian-Japanese raid during World War II, flying from Rome to Tokyo and back. The ’50s were the setting for the Scafograf diving collection, whose 300 model was re-released in 2016 to great success, receiving several awards including the “Sport Watch Award” at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The Sixties saw the Contograf become an emblem of its time thanks to its innovative features, in the true style of a Maison that is always ahead of its time.

Collectors and enthusiasts of the Eberhard brand could easily complete the list by citing a number of fascinating new mechanisms and absolutely unique shapes, each of which has in some way left its mark on the world of watchmaking. In addition, from the very beginning the Eberhard name has been adopted by the sports world and military specialists, participating in the great achievements of many outstanding personalities.

Since the early decades of the last century, officers of the Italian Royal Navy have worn Eberhard & Co. chronographs on their wrists, while the Maison’s “Frecce Tricolori” Chronomaster has accompanied the flights of the world’s most famous aerobatic team since 1984. This overview would not of course be complete without the collection dedicated to the legendary motor racing champion Tazio Nuvolari, the great driver who was never without his Eberhard pocket watch.

In recent times, the range has been enhanced with the 8 JOURS which, by means of a special device patented by Eberhard & Co., only needs winding once a week, and the Extra-fort, a re-interpretation of a chronograph that has been an iconic collection since the Forties. And last but not least, for the new millennium the Maison revolutionised the way we tell the time with the Chrono 4 (patented – registered design), the first and only chronograph in the history of watchmaking with four aligned counters, a veritable icon of the brand today. Never before had the minutes, hours, 24 hours and small seconds been arranged horizontally in a linear progression. Never before had telling the time proved to be so remarkably natural. A milestone of excellence, achieved thanks to the passion and commitment put into creating a mechanism that is unique for the complexity and difficulty of its construction.

For these reasons Eberhard has chosen the Chrono 4 to celebrate its 130th anniversary, as an emblematic model which embodies the essence of the Maison and confirms its natural propensity for evolution and growth, its ability to reinvent itself while keeping its personality and independence intact, and without sacrificing its deep bond with its roots.
The commemorative version is the CHRONO 4 130, in a steel version with an attractive, sporty look and also in an extraordinary limited edition of 130 units. Featuring a new 42 mm Ø case framed by a bezel with circular satin finish; the crown, personalised with the number “130”, is positioned between the two drop shaped chronograph buttons.
Three dial variants are available. In all versions, the central soleil part of the dial is delimited by a diamantage-finished circle, while luminescent indices are applied on the outer azurée zone.
Waterproof to 50 m, the case-back of the Chrono 4 130 is secured by 8 screws and features a central medallion in bas-relief with sandblast finish, personalized with the CHRONO 4 130 logo, where the 4 is raised. The model comes with a grey-black carbon wear strap.
Consist of 130 pieces to celebrate the anniversary of the Maison, a Chrono 4 in a very refined version. The steel case has the same dimensions as the standard edition but it houses a skeleton dial, argenté or black, which reveals the main plate and the wheels with DLC® finishing, protected by an upper bridge in a special sapphire glass that is 3 tenths of a millimetre thick, an element of highly complex construction.


A rhodium plaque, secured to the main plate by two screws, shows the name of the model and the historic trademark of Eberhard & Co., as used for the first wrist chronograph in 1919. The sapphire glass case-back provides a view of the circular oscillating weight, finished with Côtes de Genève and customized with the number 130. This edition also comes with a grey-black carbon-wear strap.

Harry Winston Avenue C™ Dual Time

The latest iteration from Harry Winston’s Avenue Collection is a sophisticated travel companion for women on the move. The Avenue C™ Dual Time, with its elegant Art Deco design features a second time zone function, for jetsetters who want to travel in style.

In order to create a clear visual distinction between the two counters on the dial, the larger counter for local time features Roman numerals, while the smaller home time counter displays the hours and minutes with Arabic numerals. In addition to the difference in size and numerals, the orientation of the minute track changes from a vertical position in the local time counter, to a horizontal position for home time: subtle design choices that make the dial extremely easy to read.
Frequent fliers will appreciate the fact that both counters are powered by two separate, totally independent, quartz movements for enhanced precision and performance. But what sets this timepiece apart from most traditional dual timers is the possibility of setting both the hour and the minute hands using the double crowns on the side of the case, which means that non-standard time differences of half-hour and quarter-hour derivations (used in countries like India, Iran and Nepal) can be accounted for.
However far afield your travels might take you, the Avenue C™ Dual Time is a constant reminder of New York, the city Harry Winston immortalized on the high jewelry map. Named after Fifth Avenue - the most prestigious shopping address in the world and home to Harry Winston’s New York Flagship Salon - the Avenue Timepiece Collection evokes the stylish and streamlined geometry of the Art Deco period, when Harry Winston founded his namesake business in 1932.

The elongated rectangular 18-karat gold case of the Avenue C™ Dual Time is gently cambered in the center to sit perfectly on the wrist. Glowing with the light of 42 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case, the two crowns are also set with truncated diamonds in classic Harry Winston style. Framing the case at both ends, the iconic arches of the Avenue recall the grand arched doorway that leads into the Fifth Avenue Salon, a gateway to the unparalleled world of Harry Winston.
Set against a glowing mother-of-pearl background, the vintage typography used for the numerals and the minute track perfectly complements the Art Deco inspiration behind the timepiece. The minute track is shaped in honor of Mr. Winston’s preference for emerald-cut stones, the same shape that houses the hand-applied 18- karat gold Harry Winston logo placed at 12 o’clock. Inside the minute track, a series of floral motifs emanate from the center of the dial.

Available in 18-karat rose gold and 18-karat white gold models, the Avenue C™ Dual Time is presented on seamless alligator leather straps with a lustrous pearl finish. The 18-karat gold ardillon buckle on both models is set with six brilliant-cut diamonds and features an 18-karat gold folding clasp that adapts perfectly to the contours of the wrist for added comfort and security.

Harry Winston Avenue Classic Automatic

The new Avenue Classic Automatic evokes the glamorous Art Deco scene of New York in the 1930s, with a thoroughly modern heart, beating in perfect time thanks to its sophisticated automatic movement.

Named after Fifth Avenue, the most prestigious shopping address in the world and home to Harry Winston’s New York Flagship Salon, the Avenue Collection evokes the streamlined styling and urban sophistication of the Art Deco period, when Harry Winston founded his namesake business in 1932.

The new Avenue Collection Automatic recalls the scintillating past of the House of Harry Winston, but moves with the times thanks to its sophisticated automatic Swiss calibre. Marking the first time an Avenue Classic timepiece is fitted with an automatic movement, the word ‘automatic’ is proudly printed on the dial.
The refined rectangular 18-karat gold case of the Avenue Classic Automatic is set with 29 brilliant-cut diamonds and a truncated diamond in the crown, which sparkles like a New York skyscraper at night. The classic arches, positioned at either end of the case, are diminutive recreations of the famous arched doorway of Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Salon and an iconic feature of the Avenue Collection.
Set against a beaded mother-of-pearl canvas, the vintage typography used for the numerals perfectly complements the Art Deco mood of the timepiece. The minute track, a novelty which will be appearing on all Avenue timepieces this year, is outlined with 42 diamonds in the shape of an emerald-cut diamond, in honor of Mr. Winston’s favorite cut. The timepiece is complete with a stunning emerald-cut diamond that graces the dial and reaffirms the unequivocal provenance of this American beauty.
To ensure superlative precision and lifelong service, the Swiss-made mechanical automatic movement is equipped with the latest technology in the form of a silicon balance spring. In order to maintain the lean profile of the Avenue case, Harry Winston’s watchmakers came up with an ingenious solution. Instead of making the case thicker to accommodate the mechanical movement, the rotor is allowed to protrude slightly on the caseback, protected by a sapphire crystal glass. Designed to be admired, the 18-karat rose gold rotor is decorated with a guilloché motif and the elegant finishes on the movement – circular Côtes de Genève and circular graining – speak to the attention to detail synonymous with the House of Harry Winston.

Available in 18-karat white gold and 18-karat rose gold cases, the Avenue Classic Automatic is presented on a seamless alligator leather strap with a shiny pearl finish. The 18-karat gold ardillon buckle is set with six brilliant-cut diamonds and features an 18-karat gold folding clasp that adapts perfectly to the wrist for added comfort and security.

Harry Winston Avenue C™ Mini Moon Phase

The Avenue Collection pays tribute to the elegant geometry of the Art Deco period when the House of Harry Winston was founded in New York. Equipped with a poetic moon phase complication, in its pearly heart, the new Avenue C™ Mini Moon Phase timepiece recalls the House’s illustrious past, while also looking to the future of its brilliant universe.

When Harry Winston founded his namesake business in 1932, his dazzling creations shifted the high jewelry spotlight from Paris to New York, establishing the House as a symbol of American glamour. New York City, with its majestic skyscrapers, bright lights and vibrant spirit was a source of constant inspiration in Harry Winston’s life and the Avenue Collection, with its prominent Art Deco styling, pays tribute to his lifelong affair with the city.
Bringing a touch of the heavens to earth, the moon transitions from new moon to full moon against a midnight blue sky. In order to incorporate a complication of this nature into such a tiny area, Harry Winston’s superior Swiss watchmakers kept the size and height of the movement to a minimum, so as to not disturb the lean, elegant profile of the case. As one of the smallest movements with a moon phase complication on the market today, the Avenue C™ Mini Moon Phase is at once feminine and unique.
Named after New York’s Fifth Avenue - the most prestigious shopping address in the world and home to Harry Winston’s New York Flagship Salon - the Avenue Collection recalls the streamlined design of the Art Deco period. The elongated 18-karat white gold rectangular case is set with 47 brilliant-cut diamonds, which twinkle like the lights of a miniature skyscraper at night. Gently cambered to sit perfectly on the wrist, the case is embellished with a truncated diamond on its crown. At either end of the case are the iconic arches of the Avenue Collection, diminutive recreations of the grand arched doorway that leads into the Fifth Avenue Flagship salon, a gateway to the glamorous world of Harry Winston.
Set against a white mother-of-pearl canvas, the vintage typography used for the numerals and the minute track perfectly complements the Art Deco mood of the timepiece.

Inside the minute track, a series of engraved floral motifs emanate from the center of the dial revealing a small, crescent-shaped aperture for the moon phase complication.

Available in 18-karat white and rose gold models, the Avenue C™ Mini Moon Phase is presented on a seamless alligator leather strap, with a lustrous pearl finish. The new 18-karat gold ardillon buckle on both models is set with six brilliant-cut diamonds and features an 18-karat gold folding clasp that adapts perfectly to the wrist for added comfort and security.

Broadway Glasses by Harry Winston

The Broadway Glasses by Harry Winston are the star of this year’s high jewelry timepiece collection. This time telling jewelry art piece is decorated with diamonds, emeralds and black onyx, evoking the bright lights of Broadway and the sleek, geometric aesthetic of the Art Deco era.

The Broadway Glasses by Harry Winston take us back in time, to New York City during the 1930s; in particular, to the bright lights of Broadway’s theater district, which drew in spectators from around the world, who were seeking a large variety of shows.

New York, home to Harry Winston’s jewelry empire since 1932, was a constant source of inspiration for the House’s one-of-a-kind creations. The 1930s were, after all, the exciting age of the skyscraper - with the majestic Chrysler and Empire State buildings - the height of the Art Deco movement, the rise of the syncopated rhythm of jazz, musicals on Broadway, and the lively cultural scene that has long been synonymous with Manhattan.

Opera glasses or theater binoculars, as they were referred to in the past, are hand-held magnification devices that allow a close-up view of the action on stage and have, throughout history, been designed to appeal to sophisticated women who wanted an accessory to match the elegance of their attire.

The lorgnette, a fancier predecessor of theater binoculars, was a pair of foldaway spectacles attached to a long handle, which was favored by fashionable society women in the 18th and 19th centuries, as a way to keep a close eye on the stage, or to get a closer look at people in the audience. More a piece of jewelry than a visual aid, lorgnettes – derived from the French “to take a sidelong look at” - were also used at masquerade parties to confer an air of mystique and allure on the wearer.

This year, Harry Winston revives the tradition of opera glasses with the introduction of its Broadway Glasses. To create this feminine accessory, Harry Winston designers married the sophisticated decoration and elegant long handle of the classic lorgnette, vintage cameras. These were then combined with the magnifying power of binoculars to create a product that is at once beautiful and practical.
The Broadway Glasses by Harry Winston are designed for a night out on the town. They were created using a combination of white gold and titanium that is almost entirely covered in diamonds and black onyx. The central structure, or body of the binoculars, is decorated with a bold, geometric design, a tribute to the accessory’s Art Deco spirit. Two layers of 80 baguette-cut diamonds frame six rows of 240 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Amazingly, on the bridge of the body, a delicate timepiece is revealed. Shaped to echo Mr. Winston’s favorite diamond cut, the emerald-cut, the dial is fully set with 48 baguette-cut diamonds and bordered with a black onyx frame with emeralds in each corner. The small wheel below the timepiece, used to adjust the focus of the lenses, is, as you would expect from the House of Harry Winston, also set with 70 baguette-cut diamonds. A labor of love, the gem setters set the baguette-cut diamonds upside-down to ensure a better grip on the focus knob and placed a cabochon emerald on top to complement the four emeralds framing the timepiece.

Onyx, a popular stone during the Art Deco period was used extensively in the creation of the Broadway Glasses by Harry Winston. In contrast to the gleaming white diamonds, panels of sleek, black onyx are inlaid on the lenses and the eyepieces.

The beauty of the Broadway Glasses by Harry Winston goes well beyond the surface, as ingenious mechanical movements, hidden beneath the gleaming exterior, ensure the perfect functioning of both the lenses and the timepiece. Equipped with professional binocular lenses, the glasses are flexible and can be adjusted to fit the shape of your face.

Setting the time on this superlative Swiss quartz-powered timepiece is effortless. Pressing a small button opens the entire high jewelry structure and allows the time to be set seamlessly from the inside.

So that the opera glasses can be held elegantly in one hand, Harry Winston’s designers created a telescopic handle that can be extended and retracted to obtain the desired length. Crafted in 18-karat white gold, the handle features a tapered octagonal shape and is decorated with onyx marquetry and a combination of 30 brilliant-cut and 14 baguette cut diamonds.

Not only can it be extended, exposing a white gold interior, the handle can also be rotated to create alternate angles for the perfect viewing experience. Last but not least, the bottom of the handle features the House’s iconic emerald-shaped logo in white gold, and, in case you don’t need the handle, it can easily be detached from the glasses.

Divine Time by Harry Winston

The House of Harry Winston introduces Divine Time - a scintillating and versatile high jewelry timepiece that can either be worn as a pendant or on the wrist as a traditional timepiece. Set with an array of glistening diamonds, time has never been so brilliant.

New York City - the city of soaring skyscrapers, sophisticated nightlife and the epicenter of the Art Deco movement in the United States – is also home to Harry Winston. Founded in 1932, at the height of the Art Deco movement, Harry Winston’s dazzling creations shifted the spotlight of the high jewelry scene from Paris to New York City. The Divine Time by Harry Winston captures the spirit of this period to perfection, marrying its refined, symmetrical elegance with the brilliance of Harry Winston’s unparalleled diamonds.
Pendant watches have always been a glamorous way for women to wear their timepieces and are currently making a revival on the high jewelry scene. Last year, Harry Winston unveiled the romantic Rosebud Heart. In continuing in this tradition, this year, Harry Winston presents Divine Time, a high jewelry timepiece destined to attract women who value versatility and the spectacular sparkle of fine diamonds.
An array of diamonds, cut in different shapes and sizes, covers the entire surface of the 18-karat white gold timepiece and demonstrates the expertise of Harry Winston’s stone cutters and gem setters. Starting from the center, the dial is paved with 188 brilliant-cut diamonds and set with six stunning marquise diamonds, which also serve as hour markers. Rather than setting the marquise diamonds directly on the base of the dial, the gem setters placed them on top of the pave diamonds, giving the dial an extraordinary sense of depth and allowing the light to reach all facets of the gemstones.

Echoing the silhouette of the curvaceous case are 28 brilliant-cut diamonds crowned at both ends by a magnificent trio of diamonds. Larger than any of the other diamonds used to embellish the timepiece, the triumphant ensemble of a baguette cut diamond flanked by two marquise diamonds is absolutely captivating.

The Divine Time by Harry Winston can be worn as a pendant, with a Harry Winston tag set with a brilliant-cut diamond on an 18-karat white gold chain, or around the wrist on an openwork alligator leather strap, which is embellished with an additional 27 brilliant-cut diamonds on the ardillon buckle. The transformation from pendant to timepiece is done with great ease and allows for the versatility of the wearer.

Emerald Time by Harry Winston

The Emerald Time by Harry Winston is an exquisite high jewelry objet d’art. Crafted in white gold and adorned with shimmering aventurine and radiant diamonds, the Emerald Time by Harry Winston recalls the elegance of the Art Deco period when the House of Harry Winston was founded.

When Harry Winston founded his namesake business in 1932, the Art Deco movement was in full swing. New York City, with its majestic architecture, bright lights and lively culture was the epicenter of the Art Deco movement in America. Unlike other artistic movements, which were primarily seen only in museums, the Art Deco movement permeated all aspects of daily life, leaving its sleek, symmetrical imprint on everything from soaring skyscrapers to fashion and countless high jewelry creations.
The Emerald Time by Harry Winston is a precious, yet practical, object that bears all the signature codes of the House of Harry Winston and celebrates the streamlined design ethos of the Art Deco movement. Inspired by Mr. Winston’s favorite diamond cut, the emerald-cut, a series of overlapping octagonal shapes bring a dynamic, architectural feel to the clock. Adorned with precious blue aventurine, the color scheme of the Emerald Time by Harry Winston evokes the signature codes of the House. As the “King of Diamonds,” it is only natural that diamonds play a fundamental role in the embellishment of the Emerald Time by Harry Winston, which features a total of 223 brilliant-cut, 235 baguette-cut and one emerald-cut diamond.
Far from being a static object, the 18-karat white gold Emerald Time by Harry Winston is equipped with a pivoting mechanism, which allows it to show the time and date on one face, and a mirror on the other. Interrupting the formal geometry of the rich blue aventurine inlays, the diamond-set areas of the stand and frame are endowed with a gentle, feminine curvature.

The stand, which can be folded, provides a firm and stable footing for the pivoting clock and mirror. With the light of diamonds and dark blue aventurine, the Emerald Time by Harry Winston, even when closed, glows like a miniature skyscraper. Two faces for one clock Once again, the mastery of Harry Winston’s gem setters is on display, as the 50 brilliant cut and 151 baguette-cut diamonds framing the dial appear to overlap like ribbons – giving the piece rhythm and movement.
The aventurine dial with hours, minutes and a large date window is set with nine brilliant cut hour markers, two horizontally-set baguette diamonds at 3 and 9 o’clock and a signature Harry Winston emerald-cut diamond at 12 o’clock. And because it is a Harry Winston creation, where every last detail counts, even the flange of the clock is set with 164 brilliant-cut diamonds, so that every angle shines with an unparalleled brilliance. Like the dial, the mirror side of the clock features an octagonal frame set with baguette cut diamonds that contrasts with the shaper angles of the blue aventurine frame.

To set the time of the Swiss quartz-powered clock there is an octagonal-shaped crown with the HW logo on the side of the stand. The Emerald Time by Harry Winston is a very special objet d’art and serves as a constant reminder of the glamorous world of Harry Winston.

Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 8

The House of Harry Winston continues to explore the universe of superlative tourbillon timepieces, with the introduction of the Histoire de Tourbillon 8. Featuring a two-biaxial tourbillon design, unified by a spherical differential, the new timepiece attains the greatest heights of timekeeping and kinematic magic. With a finish inspired by the world of haute horlogerie, two large tourbillon cages perform a slow ballet with impressive precision. Together, these tourbillons display time through the use of two off-center cones, housed in a large white gold case dedicated entirely to the grand complication. The exclusivity of the Histoire de Tourbillon 8 is matched only by the exceptional quality of its details, finishes, and engineering.

As its name suggests, the Histoire de Tourbillon 8, is first a story of the extraordinary technical prowess of tourbillon timepieces. In an immense space, which encompasses half of the watch, two large tourbillon cages are engaged in a constant dance. Every 75 seconds, each tourbillon completes a rotation on a 30-degree inclined axis. Nested within this movement, a second cage turns on its own axis, completing a rotation every 45 seconds. Within the latter, the balance wheel keeps the tempo at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour.
The principle behind the tourbillon design is to minimize gravity's influence on the balance wheel by enabling it to achieve the maximum variety of positions. With two biaxial tourbillons, the trajectory of its regulating movements is that of a disc inscribed in a sphere. This multiplication of dimensions endows the Histoire de Tourbillon 8 with the highest magnitude of chronometric properties imaginable in a mechanical watch.

Given the rigorous and exclusive environment in which the Histoire de Tourbillon 8 has evolved, the pursuit of such precision must be sought by every available means. This is why the timepiece’s HW4503 caliber is equipped with two rapidly rotating superposed barrels, one of which is equipped with a slipping spring. By virtue of the latter component, there is no sensation of disruption when winding the barrels. Furthermore, the possibility of applying too much tension, which could potentially break one of the three springs, is neutralized. Together, these components guarantee that the watch has a continuous run time of 55 hours, and more importantly, ensures the rigorously calculated regularity to its movement. This quasi-constant flux of motive force maintains the rotation of the tourbillons and balance wheels.
Comprised of 117 components, each biaxial tourbillon weighs no more than 0.76 grams. Each of their two regulating movements operates independently. Nevertheless, they must be unified, so that their deliberately independent mechanical operation results in a single time measurement. To accomplish this, the Histoire de Tourbillon 8 employs a spherical differential. The exceptional complexity of this system makes it possible to obtain an average from the two biaxial tourbillons, eliciting a superlative level of precision to determine the elemental information known as time.

The Histoire de Tourbillon 8 is also a story about materials. The materials used in the timepiece have been selected for their technical properties and exclusivity, as well as for their design potential, using only the most exceptional haute horlogerie finishes. The 51 mm case is composed entirely of white gold. It features alternating polished mirror and satin finishes that highlight its various details, such as the three Harry Winston arches located at 3 and 9 o'clock, respectively.

The dial, with its chamfers, reveals bevels that encircle the vast space dedicated to the grand revolutions of the tourbillons. The dial’s entire surface area is actually one component, made up of 13 different elements. Its distinctive textural variety is achieved through a manufacturing technique characterized by unparalleled precision, which includes sanded, grained, and satin textures, varnished components, honeycomb patterns, and script produced through a unique engraving technique. Available in 2 color variations, each version is an exclusive 10-piece limited-edition.

The first color variation is pure anthracite. The second version features dark gray with intense red accents, which appear on the periphery of the dial, the minute indicator cone, and the bracelet's topstitch needlework.

The HW4503 caliber movement, which is at the heart of the Histoire de Tourbillon 8, is made almost entirely of titanium. This light-weight, rigid, non-magnetic material is difficult to machine, and requires a unique level of expertise to fashion it in accordance with the high level of complexity required by the HW4503 caliber. The titanium used to assemble the plates and bridges first underwent extensive surface treatment, having been sanded or polished in accordance with function, while the edges of each component have been hand-beveled, a time-consuming practice which necessitates a high level of expertise. Titanium was also used to form the three dimensional bridges which hold the hour and minute indicators in place.

The two conical discs, housing the hour and minute displays, are made of aluminum. Each tourbillon cage is composed of titanium, chosen for its excellent weight to strength ratio. The upper, lower, lateral, and beveled cage surfaces have been embellished by hand, in accordance with the most innovative watch-making techniques. Finally, the bracelet is comprised of hand-stitched alligator leather, featuring red or black needlework that matches the color of the watch dial.
The Histoire de Tourbillon 8 is a story of design: a design whose first impression is one of technical prowess, exclusivity, and modernity. At rest, the axial symmetry of the timepiece is nearly perfect. On the left, the two large, superposed, biaxial tourbillons mirror one another. On the right, the two cones, whose masses differ, offset this harmonious effect. Finally, the power reserve indicator, in the form of a grooved scroll positioned at 6 o’clock, restores the timepiece's overall balance. As the tourbillons begin to rotate, their static balance is transformed into mechanical dynamics. The ensuing hypnotic interplay results in a ballet performance that is only visible on the dial’s face, and is reserved solely for the timepiece’s owner and for those invited to witness its choreography. This is because the tourbillons’ backdrop consists of an opaque plate of white gold. This particular feature contrasts with the transparent sapphire crystal case back which reveals the scope of the movement's finishes.

When worn on the wrist, only the Histoire de Tourbillon 8's indicators exceed sleeve-length. Although readability is enhanced, the timepiece remains discrete. Its design is driven not only by technical considerations, but also by the wearer’s needs. The movement's unusual dimensions (43.5 mm diameter) necessitate a sizable watch case. And yet, although the watch case measures 51.0 mm in diameter, it is rather thin: (a mere 17.30 mm). These proportions give the timepiece a relatively delicate and harmonious appearance.

Special attention was paid to lug design, particularly with respect to the lugs’ downward slope. The bracelet, whose geometrical vertical descent from the watch case is nearly perfect, features a clasp which hugs even the most slender of wrists. Such advanced ergonomic research demonstrates that the Histoire de Tourbillon 8 is not intended to embellish a window display or remain locked away in a luxury watch collection. It is meant to be worn, admired, and displayed on the wrist of one of the 20 individuals discerning enough to have chosen it.
