Luxury timepieces by Harry Winston
Harry Winston shone the spotlight on a new collection of luxury watches that pays homage to New York – the city that never sleeps. The pieces injected the jeweller’s iconic pieces with an Art Deco appeal.
The jewellery house presented The Avenue Collection, which include timepieces that evoke the cosmopolitan energy of New York City, at BaselWorld. Named after New York’s infamous Fifth Avenue, the Avenue Collection is inspired by the streamlined design of the Art Deco period.
Harry Winston launched four new iterations of the Avenue Collection – the Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom model, which interprets the beauty of the Japanese Sakura season with artistic sensitivity and recreates a scene of the annual blooming of the cherry blossom tree through diamonds and pink sapphires; the Avenue C Mini Moon Phase, which brings a touch of heavenly beauty to earth with its romantic moon phase complication and vintage touches; the Avenue C Dual Time, which is equipped with a practical second time zone function for women on the move; and the Avenue Classic Automatic, which is the first woman’s timepiece in the Avenue Classic Collection to be fitted with an automatic movement, an acknowledgement of the growing number of women who appreciate fine mechanical movements.
Other novelties in the Avenue Collection include a new gold folding clasp in the strap, which offers enhanced comfort and security, and the use of seamless alligator straps for a more elegant finish, according to Harry Winston.
