In the wake of speculation that famed watchmaker and diamond retailer Harry Winston is looking to sell his business, the brand continues on as a benchmark of luxury. The company’s new Midnight Collection is the epitome of elegance, reflecting Harry Winston’s famed attention to minute detail.
For men, there are two Midnight Collection timepieces available, both featuring a 42mm-diameter case in either white or rose gold. The Harry Winston Midnight Automatic and Harry Winston Midnight Big Date both showcase a minimalist design which focuses attention on the essentials of watchmaking.
For women, the Harry Winston Midnight watches, in white or rose gold, are available with a 32mm or 39mm-diameter case. The wearer can choose whether to wear the timepiece unadorned, or can choose delicately set embellishments.
In every edition the Midnight watches have a discreet satin finish which complements the gold cases. Tying the entire timepiece design together is an understated silky wristband, which makes this watch an incredibly versatile yet functional; it is appropriate to wear to the office or out at night. While the look is one of simple elegance, the timepiece is anything but; on the dial the hours are marked with slim batons, lightly dusted with diamonds, giving the watch a classic, clean-scrubbed and sober esthetic.
CEO and President of Harry Winston Frederic de Narp stated: “If you close your eyes and think of what Harry Winston is and has been for the past 80 years is elegance and refinement, so my first goal was to give to Harry Winston a watch that is the embodiment of elegance and refinement.”
The Harry Winston Midnight Collection timepieces range in price from $14,700 to $32,200.
