Always pursuing the quest for excellence, elegance and innovation, the House of Harry Winston deftly blends modernity and timelessness in the newest Glacier manchette masterpiece. Truly a work of artistic beauty, the Glacier timepiece is, in reality, a splendid piece of jewelry.
Inspired by the Harry Winston Water High Jewelry Collection – which inventively combines geometry and ultra-femininity – Harry Winston set a goal of creating one of the most fluid, graceful diamond watches using only baguette-cut diamonds.
The challenge was to give life to this exquisite rectangular shaped diamond. Using twelve different sizes of baguette-cut diamonds, assembled in different positions, the master gem setters and designers at Harry Winston bring romantic passion to the forefront in this eternally glamorous piece. Set with more than 76 carats of diamonds, Glacier is a harmonious balance of symmetry and purity in design.
Working side-by-side, Harry Winston’s designers, gem cutters and gem setters spent four months in the design phase of this architectural beauty, and over one thousand hours to set the seductive piece. Exactly 386 baguette-cut diamonds weighing approximately 71 carats are meticulously set into platinum and brought together via thin wires of platinum to form an open-worked watch bracelet that is so supple that it sits against the skin in sensual beauty. Glacier resolutely reflects the designs codes of Harry Winston, from the geometric inspiration to the glorious feminine appeal.
Capturing the essence of nature’s finest diamonds, Glacier features a manchette-shaped dial set with 36 baguette-cut diamonds weighing 5.4 carats. In total, the beguiling one-of-a- kind piece is set with 422 baguette-cut diamonds weighing 76.4 carats. Glacier is powered by a quartz movement, whose crown is underneath the dial so as not to intrude on the magnificence of this piece of jewelry. The extraordinary Glacier underscores Harry Winston’s commitment to innovation in design and purity in spirit.
