Harry Winston Premier Chinese New Year Ox Automatic Watch

Harry Winston celebrates the Year of the Ox with a captivating rose gold timepiece from the Premier collection, the zodiac sign for the upcoming Chinese New Year. The Premier Chinese New Year Ox Automatic 36mm watch will light up wrists and eyes with its captivating design.

The timepiece features a powerful figure of an ox set against a vivid red mother-of-pearl dial, decorated with Harry Winston diamonds. The Ox is the second of the twelve animals represented in the Chinese Zodiac. Among the five elements associated with the Ox, the year 2021 corresponds to the Metal Ox. A hardworking, noble draft animal, the Ox is highly valued in Chinese culture. People born under the sign of the Ox are said to be diligent, dependable, and honest. With these traits in mind, the master artisans at Harry Winston opted to portray the ox in all its glory – turning to rose gold and diamonds against a stunning bold red background. 

The muscular silhouette of the animal, with its characteristic curved horns, strong muzzle and mighty chest, is drawn in 18-karat rose gold and then applied to the dial. Diamonds play a principal key role in the composition, and Harry Winston’s gem-setters have highlighted the horns and animated the Ox’s body with touches of light. The hours and minutes are excentered and placed just below the large emerald-cut diamond at 12 o’clock; a direct reference to Mr. Winston’s favorite diamond cut. The chapter ring framing the Ox is also set with diamonds and punctuated with two brilliant-cut diamond indexes, and four applied rose gold hour markers.

In all, the 18-karat rose gold 36mm timepiece boasts 57 brilliant-cut diamonds.  A sapphire crystal on the reverse side reveals the high-end Swiss-made mechanical automatic movement. Fitted with a flat silicon balance spring to ensure precision over the years, the movement offers a robust power reserve of 68 hours. The rose gold skeletonized rotor, Côtes de Genève decoration, rhodium-plated parts, and circular graining on the base plate can also be admired along with the number of each limited edition engraved on the case back.

The Premier Chinese New Year Ox 36mm comes on a shiny red alligator leather strap to match the dial and is secured to the wrist with a rose gold ardillon buckle set with 17 brilliant-cut diamonds. It is presented in a dedicated red-lacquered gift box with golden serigraphy. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
