The new Premier Majestic Art Deco timepiece by Harry Winston pays homage to the signature aesthetic of the Art Deco era.
Housed in a white gold case, the dial reveals its jazzy geometry emphasized with a bold black and white color palette. A careful assortment of black jade, mother-of-pearl and diamonds, set in layers, create a dramatic spectacle of infinite depth and glamour.
The Art Deco spirit dominates the magnificent dial of this timepiece, which features a dynamic arrangement of black and white creative elements. Slivers of white mother-of-pearl and glossy black jade, carefully set in a white gold base, work together to form the abstract background. This technique, known as marquetry, allows the geometric sunray design to come to life.
Paying homage to Mr. Winston’s favorite cut for precious stones, an emerald-cut black jade sits center stage on the top half of the dial. Its octagonal facets are framed by round brilliant diamonds, arranged in a cut-down setting that promises the utmost sparkle and light.
Once again, Harry Winston’s gem-setters have found innovative ways to use mother-of-pearl. Grey and white mother-of-pearl cabochons sit between brilliant-cut diamonds. The sizes of both the pearl cabochons and the diamonds vary, adding visual complexity, volume and rhythm.
Since its debut in 1989, Harry Winston’s Premier Collection has been the designated series to showcase various artistic forms, and the Premier Majestic Art Deco is no exception. Instantly recognizable by the distinctive diamond-set lugs that reimagine the entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon, the 18-karat white gold case is set with 57 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel with truncated diamonds in the crown and tips of the lugs.
The Premier Majestic Art Deco Automatic 36mm is powered by a high-end Swiss mechanical automatic movement with flat silicon balance spring. It provides a generous 72-hour power reserve. The movement, with its 18-karat white gold skeletonized rotor and refined hand finishes, can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.
In keeping with the black and white color scheme, a black pearl alligator strap accompanies the timepiece and attaches to the wrist with a white gold ardillon buckle set with 17 brilliant-cut diamonds.
