Premier collection 2010

Premier: A collection that embodies the essence of Harry Winston timepieces – the boldness to achieve uncompromised excellence and the creativity of mechanical watchmaking. Launched in 1989 as one of the first Harry Winston timepieces, the Premier design captures the pioneering spirit of the brand and continues to introduce world-first horological marvels, including the Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar.

Highlighting Harry Winston’s inimitable sophistication, Premier watches strike a creative balance between aesthetic and technical design for a rare and original expression of time. The iconic case features Harry Winston’s signature three arches, an invitation to step into the brand universe. Offset dials, retrograde indications and a multi-layered effect accentuate the creativity and dimensionality in design. 

Enriching the line with a distinctly modern touch, two new models are being introduced this year: the Premier Perpetual Calendar for men; and the Premier Lady Chronograph for women. 

Premier Perpetual Calendar 

In 1989 Harry Winston introduced the first Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar, sparking a
revolution in contemporary mechanical watchmaking. Two decades later, this iconic design
returns to center-stage with a blend of strength and sophistication. The 41mm white gold case has been reinvented with even more refinement, adding a subtle groove in the side to highlight its elegant contours, while maintaining the three signature arches.

The highly dimensional dial articulates the quality of craftsmanship and places the focus firmly on the complications. Surrounded by a snailed black base, the silver colored Côtes de Genève pays eloquent tribute to fine watchmaking tradition. The anthracite color contrast highlights the various indications: off-centered hours and minutes, retrograde months at 10 o’clock, and retrograde dates at 7 o’clock are arranged in a contemporary manner, while the understated leap-year and moon-phase apertures are set opposite each other. Touches of Harry Winston’s signature blue shade further accentuate the design and enhance the readability of the dial. Driven by a mechanical self-winding movement with a 45-hour power reserve, the Premier Perpetual Calendar is also available with a silvered dial.


Premier Lady Chronograph

Radiating an elegant, yet seductive charm, the new Premier Lady brings an ultra-feminine feel to the chronograph by combining horological tradition with fine jewelry design. 

Framed by an exquisite 39 mm gem-set white gold case, the dial is meticulous and delicately detailed, adding a modern refinement without compromising the readability of the design. The off-centered diamond-set mother-of-pearl chronograph counters, each with its own personality, are discreetly juxtaposed. The materials are crafted using a magnificent marquetry-like motif to catch, hold and reflect the light. The inner bezel ring is adorned with a brilliant crown of diamonds that appears to melt into the watch in such a way that only the wearer can admire its full radiance. The innate refinement of the applied hour-markers creates a subtle contrast with the carefree numerals on the sunburst satin-brushed dial. The date appears at 6 o’clock in an ultra-simple round window. Meanwhile, the Harry Winston signature set with a single diamond gracefully follows the curve of a counter.

This dynamic approach to gem-setting is further expressed on the case. The gently beveled bezel is embellished with a double row of diamonds. The sides of the cabochon-set crown are paved with diamonds, and the folding clasp sparkles with the fire of the glittering gemstones. And finally, to match a variety of feminine tastes, the Premier Lady Chronograph is also available with anthracite or blue satin-brushed dial versions.
