Harry Winston Premier Winston Candy Automatic 31mm Limited Edition

The Premier Winston Candy Automatic 31mm is a vibrant coloured high jewellery timepiece that celebrates the dazzling art of snow setting.

The dial of the Premier Winston Candy features a cascade of 244 diamonds and candy-colored gems. To create the joyful scene on the dial, eight different gemstones were cut in three different sizes and artfully snowset. By combining the bright white light of 108 diamonds with the dazzling neonblue of 25 Paraiba tourmalines, the intense green glow of 24 tsavorites, the vivid orange hue of 24 spessartites and the mysterious fire of 17 dark- and 17 light-blue sapphires, as well as 16 red spinels and 13 pink sapphires, Harry Winston has created its most delectable high jewelry timepiece to date.

Harry Winston’s master gem-setters have turned to the art of snow-setting, a technique that was designed to capture the natural –and irregular – beauty of freshly fallen snow. Rather than the traditional method of prong-setting uniform gemstones, snow-setting relies on different-sized stones, which are in turn set into an underlying gold structure pitted with hollowed-out areas. The challenge is to set the stones side by side, revealing as little metal as possible, while also maximizing the fire of each individual stone. As a result, three different sizes of stones are snow-set on the dial of the Premier Winston Candy.

Since its debut in 1989, Harry Winston’s Premier collection has been designated to showcase different artistic disciplines, including this magnificent display of snowset gemstones. Instantly recognizable by the distinctive lugs that replicate the shape of the arched entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon, the Premier Winston Candy is crafted in an 18-karat white gold case and embellished with 63 multi-colored gemstones. Reasserting its high jewelry nature, a truncated diamond is set in the crown and on either side of the lugs. Presented in a feminine 31 mm case, this smaller size is ideal for women with dainty wrists.

The Premier Winston Candy is powered by a high-end Swiss automatic movement with a 40-hour power reserve. Equipped with the latest technology in the form of a flat silicon balance spring, this movement is destined to keep impeccable time. The sapphire crystal case back reveals the attention to detail synonymous with all Harry Winston creations, in this case with a rose gold open-worked rotor and elegant finishes – circular Côtes de Genève motifs, rhodium plating and circular graining – on the movement.

A limited-edition of 77 pieces, the Premier Winston Candy is presented on a raspberry strap with a white gold ardillon buckle set with 15 colorful gemstones, echoing the décor of the dial and case.
