Premier Precious Butterfly Automatic 36mm
The Premier Precious Butterfly requires an unusual technique
In the stunning Premier Feathers, Harry Winston combines two ancestral skills: horology and feather art. With its new Premier models, the House wishes to continue exploring unexpected pairings and use another highly original technique.
The material chosen for this model – butterfly wings – is brimming with emotions and symbolism. The vibrant colors adorning the Premier Precious Butterfly timepieces are created using the fragile, yet extraordinarily iridescent, powder found on butterfly wings. Harry Winston designers successfully harvested and expertly placed this delicate powder on each of its dials, a technique that required three years of creative reflection and development.
Creations in which color springs to life
With each Premier Precious Butterfly, the pigments create a fascinating kaleidoscope of colors as they recreate butterfly wings. The dials catch and hold light just like the wings of a butterfly found in nature. The sapphire crystal seems to be the only thing keeping the butterfly inside the gold case, set with 57 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The Premier Precious Butterfly timepieces are driven by a mechanical automatic movement equipped with a silicon balance spring ensuring excellent precision. The movement finishes – circular Côtes de Genève, rhodium plating and circular graining – speak to the attention to detail cherished by the House of Harry Winston.
