HARRY WINSTON MIDNIGHT BIG DATE
Classic yet modern. In a word: timeless. The new Harry Winston Midnight Collection embodies the quintessence of watchmaking, imbued with a sense of authenticity and refinement.
Harry Winston Midnight Big Date depicts the time indications in a unique style, true to the spirit of the brand and to watchmaking tradition. This intrinsically elegant watch would undoubtedly have appealed to Mr. Winston himself.
Behind the scenes, the self-winding mechanical movement works with the required precision, its fine detailing visible via the transparent case-back.
On center stage, the dial, available in black, is definitely masculine. It offers the leading role to a large date that takes an uncompromising stand at 6 o'clock. The dial features a traditionally crafted circular guilloché pattern, which moves outward like an off-centered ripple, emphasizing the sleek and contemporary elegance of the watch.
As Harry Winston's codes dictate, the excentered chapter ring is placed at noon, fringed with a thin gold ring that accompanies the hands as they travel round. Opposite, a window draws the eye to the double-aperture.
The arrangement offers each element a prime place and gives depth and relief to the dial. A single diamond is perched discreetly above the large date, reminding connoisseurs of Mr. Winston's habit of keeping one of his gems in his pocket for the sheer pleasure of rolling it between his fingers.
Crafted in white gold, the 42 mm case chooses understated elegance to better highlight the sophistication of the time indications. The timepiece features an inherent visual balance that adds both elegance and readability.
