Harry Winston brand, decided to pay homage to the Chinese New Year with its new special watch for ladies. The dial of the Premier Monkey Automatic 36mm makes a dazzling first impression. A pink mother-of-pearl twinkles with flecks of 24K gold, each inlaid one by one in tiny individually carved hollows, creating a magnificent pink and gold constellation. Delicately affixed to this luminous backdrop is an 18K gold carved monkey with a diamond for an eye.
Appearing to grasp the bezel at 9 o’clock, his tail winds around a 0.09-carat emerald-cut diamond at 12 o’clock. In a profile carved from yellow gold appliqué with marquise-cut openwork, the dimensions appear fleshed out and the creature seems to come to life. The subtle cutouts evoke Jianzhi, or paper cutting, a prized art form used since the dawn of time to convey traditional Chinese wishes of prosperity and a long life.
The Premier Monkey Automatic 36mm is driven by a mechanical automatic movement equipped with a flat silicon balance spring, visible through the sapphire crystal on the case back.
The Circular Côtes de Genève finishes are impeccably executed. The timepiece is presented in a rose gold case that measures 36 mm in diameter and is secured by a stylish black satin strap. The bezel, lugs and ardillon buckle are set with 74 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total weight of 2.47 carats that sparkle with all the fire of Harry Winston jewelry.
Harry Winston Premier Monkey Automatic is limited to only 8 pieces.
