The Ocean Biretrograde 36mm is a grand classic from the House of Harry Winston featuring bold, elegant details, including an ex-centered Hour/Minute display and two retrograde functions. Designed for ladies, this new interpretation showcases mechanisms imbued with a technological beauty that do not go unnoticed. The enchanting, design offers lyrical, graphic display that conveys the model’s unique blend of energy and harmony.
The mechanical complication movement – that has been part of the Ocean Lady collection since its launch in 2006 – has been entirely redesigned and notably features a silicon balance-spring. In addition to silicon’s resistance to corrosion, the material is highly durable and wears well over time. This revisited calibre is further enhanced by decorating the bridges with a circular Côtes de Genève centered around the balance; and a new design for the rose gold oscillating weight on women’s models, which are specific to each collection.
The path of the hours and minutes follows the indexes shaped like an emerald-cut diamond. They are extended by clearly visible diamonds also picked up on the retrograde seconds and day counters, irresistibly swept over by the graceful dance of their respective hands.
The raised counters, as well as the invisible wall-to-wall diamond-setting on the shimmering mother-of-pearl, are delicately layered, further enhancing the architectural quality of the dial. Shown in a subtle blue-gray shade, that hovers between day and night, it exudes a mysterious and seductive quality, while further accentuating the contemporary nature of the model.
The case is fitted with an entirely redesigned crown, bevelled decorative pushers, elongated lugs and arches with even purer lines. The size and quality of the gems adorning each part reflect the House’s legacy of the finest diamonds. The House’s expert gem-setters have exercised their precious skills in ensuring that each stone is set with a minimal amount of visible metal.
