Lace, fringe and fabric are all the hallmarks of fine fashion. Now, however, Harry Winston marries the fashion-forward elements of lace and woven fabrics into its women’s timepiece collection. The brand, a master at haute-art dials, turns to the rare art of weaving for some of its new fabric-inspired Premier watches. The Premier Precious Weaving Automatic 36mm watches feature hand-woven dials created using a rare Japanese technique. The new 36mm automatic Premier Precious Weaving watches (there are four versions) feature hand-crafted dials that weave silk threads, as well as threads of gold with mother of pearl for a stunning masterpiece.
The weaving technique was more than 18 months in the research and development stages. The use of silk thread with mother of pearl makes for a dial that almost resembles an artistic tapestry. Among the versions offered: Chrysanthemum flower with alternating petals of white and darker tones of mother-of-pearl; an abstract motif created from interwoven mother-of-pearl, silk and gold; an antique-inspired Koi fish motif; a dark metallic motif that resembles city lights. The collection retails starting at $36,400.
The brand has also unveiled a stunning Premier Lace Automatic 36mm watch,which is actually carved mother of pearl designed to look like lace. It is an incredible work of detail and dramatic beauty.
