Travel Time by Harry Winston

The 18-karat white gold Travel Time combines the practicality of a portable alarm and desk clock with the precious materials and flawless finishes associated with the House of Harry Winston. Embellished with a combination of semi-precious, sparkling blue aventurine, opalescent mother-of-pearl, rich blue sapphires, and rare diamonds, this timepiece is the ultimate travel companion.

The color blue is deeply associated with the House of Harry Winston and recalls the rare 45.52-carat blue Hope Diamond that Mr. Winston famously acquired in 1949. Another House signature is the emerald cut, an elegant octagonal shape favored by the ‘King of Diamonds,’ who loved to highlight the natural magnificence, clarity, and color of extraordinary gems in his jewelry design.

The Travel Time by Harry Winston pays homage to both of these signature codes. A succession of octagonal shapes is harmoniously incorporated into the architecture of this timepiece, while blue aventurine, punctuated by blue sapphires, dominates the scenery.

Measuring just 66 mm when closed and designed to fit in your pocket, the corners of the Travel Time by Harry Winston feature four large emerald-cut, blue sapphires, framed by two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds. A fifth emerald-cut diamond, located in the center of the clock, denotes the point of opening.

By gently sliding the case’s gold protective covers, the doors glide open to reveal the sophisticated dial. For added stability, Travel Time is equipped with a collapsible stand that can be deployed manually from inside the case. A closer inspection of the white gold stand reveals that even its base is octagonal and emulates Mr. Winston’s beloved emerald cut.

The emerald cut truly dominates all aspects of this unique timepiece, as the 64 brilliant-cut blue sapphires, white gold Harry Winston logo at 12 o’clock, and minute track all replicate the emblematic octagonal shape.

In addition to the time and date functions, the alarm is indicated by a third hand with a black arrow-shaped tip. Just above the clock, embedded in the white gold case, are two crowns; the crown on the left allows to set the alarm, while the one on the right controls the hours, minutes and date. The clock is equipped with a high-end Swiss quartz movement.
