Ahead of Baselworld 2017, which takes place next month in Basel, Switzerland, Harry Winston has previewed a new diamond studded rectangular-shaped ladies’ timepiece called the Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom. Captures the ephemeral beauty of the cherry blossom tree on the dial. The gorgeous scenery celebrates one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful gifts with diamonds and pink sapphires and is protected for eternity in a case that mirrors the architecture of Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon in New York.
Inspired by the architecture Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon in New York the case is set with 29 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 2.21 carats). The push-in crown is also set with a diamond. The 18k white gold case measures 21.15 mm x 36.1 mm x 6.68 mm and is water-resistant to 30 meters. The symbolic branches of a cherry blossom tree are crafted in white gold and hand-applied to the to dial.
Other Harry Winston signature codes include the House’s official logo. Placed on the dial at 12 o’clock, the letters HW are housed in an octagonal frame, a shape inspired by Mr. Harry Winston’s favourite diamond cut – the emerald cut. This miniature masterpiece is presented on a green-blue alligator strap to match the color of the dial and the 18-karat white gold buckle is set with 6 brilliant-cut diamonds.
This ladies’ jewelry masterpiece is powered by a caliber HW1044 quartz movement. The novelty for the Avenue Collection this year is the incorporation of an 18-karat white gold folding clasp that adapts perfectly to the wrist for enhanced comfort.
