Harry Winston Premier Lotus Automatic 31mm features a dynamic floral sculpture rising from the pearly waters of the dial. Recalling different chapters in the scintillating history of the House of Harry Winston, the majestic petals of the lotus flower dazzle with their color, light and volume. Presented in either 18-karat white or rose gold, the eternal bloom of the flower is matched by a sophisticated mechanical movement for a lifetime of precision.
Every detail of the Premier Lotus timepiece remembers the rich history of the House of Harry Winston. Inspired by the Lotus Cluster fine jewelry collection, this timepiece captures the beauty of the same aquatic flower in a vibrant arrangement that recalls Mr. Winston’s signature clustering technique. The lotus flower, a prevalent motif in Indian culture, is a symbol of regeneration, as it rises every morning from the dark, muddy waters to extend its immaculate petals in the sunlight.
The lotus flower depicted on the dial is a miniature floral sculpture composed of layered petals that rise to greet the viewer from a pool of mother-of-pearl. Each petal is sculpted in 18-karat white or rose gold and filled with precious and semi-precious materials. The rich kaleidoscope of colors, shapes and textures creates a dial of fascinating volume and dazzling light.
The white gold model celebrates the majesty of the lotus flower with a blue color palette achieved using different varieties of mother-of-pearl. Interspersed throughout the bloom, are petals set with brilliant-cut diamonds, and others filled with martelé white gold. The rose gold model plays with more earthy tones and features petals in different shades of taupe mother-of-pearl, golden tiger’s eye and martelé rose gold.
No Harry Winston timepiece would be complete without the House’s famous diamonds; these dials shine with the radiant light of 147 brilliant-cut diamonds and seven striking marquise-cut diamonds set near the center of the flower.
The first timepiece collection launched by the House in 1989, the Premier collection features three diamond-set arches placed at 12 and 6 o’clock on the case, evoking the shape of the entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon. Measuring a delicate and feminine 31 mm in diameter, the gold case is set with 58 brilliant-cut diamonds and features the hallmark, truncated diamond at the crown and four truncated diamonds at either end of the strap attachments.
The hour and minute functions of the Premier Lotus are powered by a high-end Swiss mechanical automatic movement. The latest technology, in the form of a flat silicon balance spring, will ensure years of impeccable service and help optimize the overall isochronism of the movement. The sapphire crystal on the case back reveals the fine finishes on the movement and the skeletonized 22-karat rose gold rotor engraved with Harry Winston.
The straps of both models echo the color scheme of the dial; the white gold model is presented with a pearly blue alligator strap, while the rose gold version comes with a pearly brown alligator strap. Both are fastened to the wrist with a matching gold ardillon buckle set with 15 brilliant-cut diamonds. The Premier Lotus Automatic 31mm is also available with a solid 18-karat gold bracelet or one that is fully set with diamonds for the ultimate homage to Mr. Winston.
