Icy diamonds and iridescent mother-of-pearl join their natural forces on the outstanding dial of Harry Winston’s sophisticated Emerald collection of watches. Enhanced by colorful cabochons, the house has brought out a new palette of captivating colors with turquoise, champagne, orange and violet joining the collection in 2021. Aqua stones on the turquoise dial, the vibrant orange dial, a refined look for the champagne dial and unbridled exuberance on the violet dial, color becomes the order of the day on these timepieces. Each of the dials is accompanied by a satin double tour strap that matches the dial.
Set around the perimeter of the dial are cabochons crafted from natural mother-of-pearl and the cabochons in turn are enlivened by 20 brilliant-cut sparkling diamonds while the central section of the dial is covered with a layer of beaded mother-of-pearl. The dial is nestled into an elegant octagonal 18-carat white gold case which is set with 53 brilliant-cut diamonds which illuminate the dial with their icy radiant light.
The double tour satin straps enjoy 11 brilliant-cut diamonds on the buckle and the Emerald timepieces are also available on a luxurious 18-karat white gold Milanese mesh bracelet which has a total of 120 dazzling diamonds. The watch is outfitted with a precision Swiss quartz movement and is water resistant to 30 meters. Introduced in 2016, the Emerald collection is named after Mr. Winston’s preferred diamond cut: the eight-sided emerald cut.
