HARRY WINSTON Midnight Collection – Midnight Monochrome Automatic & Midnight Monochrome

Pure lines create a powerful emotional identity. Harry Winston explores this approach through the “Monochrome” theme, an artistic creation designed as a dramatic climax, a breathing space intended to release an emotion nurtured by rigorous stylistic discipline.

Traditionally reserved for noble buildings, the Slate continues to symbolize a certain architectural philosophy. With its pure and discreet shades of grey ensure it stands out from all other rocks. Endowed with such a beautiful nature, it naturally finds its way untouched through changing eras. A humble, and yet truly timeless material, it is Harry Winston’s source of inspiration for the Midnight Monochrome collection.

In order to reproduce the unique structure of slate, the Harry Winston dial-makers developed a new technique far removed from the usual watchmaking finishes, honing it to create a plate with a truly slate-like effect. In addition to its mineral beauty, the dial thus guarantees a degree of longevity entirely in tune with the principles of excellence upheld by the House of Harry Winston.
