Celebrations abound at Harry Winston in anticipation of the 20th anniversary of the Ocean Collection. The Ocean 20th Anniversary Biretrograde Automatic 36mm is a highly exquisite timepiece and just one that is targeted at the female population. The other timepieces that the brand has dazzled the globe with include the Ultimate Marble Marquetry, Marble Marquetry and also two Ocean Biretrograde Automatic 36mm models.
The anniversary timepiece certainly has taken center stage and while being a limited edition release, it is such a jewelry masterpiece. The timepiece features 120 Paraiba tourmalines, which is one of the rarest gems on the planet and one of the most costly. In addition to these spectacular gems there are 169 brilliant-cut diamonds adorning the timepiece.
The other timepieces have been inspired by vintage design and are stellar cocktail watches. The starburst that is featured in the Harry Winston New York store is on both, and gemstones of diamonds and sapphires enhance the elegant timepieces. The two other Ocean timepieces are designed with mother-of-pearl dials crafted in two colors, blue and burgundy. The straps are matching colors made with alligator leather. Also each of these pieces has diamonds outlining the dial, and positioned on the case itself, and are part of the original collection.
The brand automatic 36mm was designed to recall the colors of the sea and was brilliantly crafted to be alluring and graceful on the wrist. The stunning 18 carat white gold timepiece bears every trait of its namesake collection and includes a biretrograde display and excentered hours and minutes counter. The clients that Harry Winston created these timepieces for appreciate refined beauty and precise mechanical movement. Embarking on a maiden voyage this collection introduces some really exquisite jeweled timepieces.
The Paraiba tourmalines were discovered in the 1980’s in Brazil and are an intense bright blue that glows like the ocean water. The jewelry industry was taken by frenzy when these were introduced. The timepieces were inspired certainly by the classic shape of navigational tools and enhanced by gemstones that are breathtaking. The use of the mother-of-pearl on the background was clever as it creates the illusion of depth and volume. The natural iridescence, that design really creates the beauty of a shimmering sea. The dazzle of these timepieces continues on the back of the case where the transparent sapphire crystal allows you to see the novel gem-set rotor and hand finished touches on the movement itself.
The limited edition of these Harry Winston 20th Anniversary timepieces makes them highly sought after and truly a collectors dream. If you love great beauty and respect precision and high end watches, then you will want to see each of these to appreciate them in full.
