Harry Winston Premier Hypnotic Opal Mosaic

Marina Milojević | 06.27.19 | 08:59 PM

In 2019, Harry Winston adds two new feminine watches to its Premier collection. The first one is the Premier Hypnotic Opal Mosaic, a watch that celebrates Mr. Winston’s passion for motion and color in fine jewelry. This blue-themed watch evokes the rare blue Hope Diamond that Mr. Winston acquired in 1949, and later donated to the Smithsonian Institution. The story of this diamond is quite amazing, and the most interesting fact is that Mr. Winston sent it to the Smithsonian Institute through U.S. Mail in a box wrapped in brown paper as simple registered mail. It was last reported to be insured for $250 million.

Now back to the watch. The new Premier Hypnotic Opal Mosaic timepiece is crafted in white gold and set with baguette-cut diamonds and blue sapphires. The precious stones dance with the coming light, diffusing color and kinetic energy in all directions.

The dial of this truly beautiful timepiece is crafted from iridescent opal, which emits a distinctive blue and green sparkle, flashing a rainbow of colors that vary according to the light. The mosaic design is a reference to Harry Winston’s artistry in transforming diamonds into three-dimensional jewelry sculptures. The whirl is brought to life through the series of white gold quadrilaterals that lessen the size as they travel from the bezel to the center of the dial. The outermost areas of the design are set with 72 baguette-cut diamonds and 72 baguette-cut blue sapphires, while a swarm of 24 princess-cut diamonds dominates the center. Visible between the precious gems is the iridescent opal, which highlights the sensation of motion and depth. A tiny star lays on top of the base for the hours and minutes hands, rotating clockwise as the movement is running.

The watch is housed in a medium-sized 36mm 18-karat white gold case with diamond-set lugs that evoke the look of the arched entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon. The case is set with 161 baguette-cut diamonds, and the lugs are embellished with four truncated brilliant-cut diamonds, while a truncated blue sapphire adorns the crown.
