Winston Kaleidoscope High Jewelry Watch by Harry Winston

Four extraordinary high jewelry timepieces, inspired by the magical spectacle of a kaleidoscope, make their debut this year. Precious gemstones, clustered around the case, recreate an explosion of color and volume. A dazzling red carpet companion or bright evening accessory, the Winston Kaleidoscope showcases the creativity and gem-setting expertise that characterize the House of Harry Winston.

The four sparkling high jewelry beauties are adorned in scintillating ball gowns crafted entirely from diamonds and colored gemstones. Housed in platinum cases, the dials of the four Winston Kaleidoscope timepieces are fully set with 71 brilliant cut diamonds and the iconic white gold Harry Winston Emerald applique at 12o’clock. The marvelous gem-setting on the case recalls the dramatic high jewelry creations upon which the reputation of the House was built. In true Winston fashion, stones in varying cuts and sizes are free of heavy metal settings and transformed into three-dimensional masterpieces characterized by movement and light.

Two of the models feature round brilliant, pear-shaped and marquise-cut stones, and recall Mr. Winston’s love for “clustering,” or creating the dynamic arrangements that might be found inside a kaleidoscope. Through the magnificent work of Harry Winston’s gem-setters, the underlying platinum structure – in itself a work of art – fades into the background to let each individual stone revel in its natural beauty.

The all-diamond high jewelry timepiece features a spectacular halo of white diamonds. In a fine show of Mr. Winston’s signature clustering technique, 40 pear shaped diamonds, 10 marquise-cut diamonds, and 105 round brilliant diamonds shine in a unique arrangement on the case, offering incomparable brilliance and radiance. A closer look reveals two hearts, at either end of the case, made from two pear-shaped diamonds.

A second diamond-driven model features the same stone arrangement, but with a burst of color. Set with 85 brilliant-cut diamonds, 20 brilliant-cut Brazilian Paraiba tourmalines, 20 pear-shaped diamonds, 10 pear-shaped blue sapphires, 10 pear shaped tsavorites, 5 marquise-cut diamonds, and 5 marquise-cut pink sapphires, it is an absolute vision.

Like the blades of a windmill, the latter two Winston Kaleidoscope timepieces feature energetic gem setting on the case to convey a hypnotic sense of motion. Emanating from the diamond center, a variety of precious gemstones gather speed and gradually grow in size.

The spiraling energy is enhanced by color, with one model featuring 42 tsavorites, 29 blue sapphires, 28 orange spessartines, 14 diamonds and 14 yellow sapphires. A second variation displays a different color palette, with 36 blue sapphires, 28 diamonds, 21 aquamarines, 21 pink sapphires, 14 rubies and 7 tsavorites.

All four Winston Kaleidoscope models are equipped with a high-end Swiss quartz movement and are presented on satin straps with a platinum buckle set with 29 brilliant-cut diamonds.
