My Precious Time

#FirstClassFriday: Harry Winston perfects the art of discretion with a secret watch
A diamond-cloaked timepiece fit for Bond woman, Monica Bellucci

Seductive, elegant and lusciously alluring. If Harry Winston's secret watch My Precious Time were made for someone specific, we're putting in our vote for Monica Bellucci. A modern creation with an old soul, the American jeweller once again revives the hard lines and playful geometrics of '30s Art Deco.

Devised as a dazzling brooch drizzled with no less than 368 brilliant, baguette and marquise-cut white diamonds, every inch of the high jewellery timepiece was tended to by Harry Winston's master jewellers. Here comes the scintillating secrecy: Push down on the marquise-cut diamond (positioned horizontally below the largest gem) to activate the in-built trigger, and revel in the octagonal watch face unveiled. If only Harry Winston's My Precious Time was fastened onto Bellucci's smoldering black lace dress — a push of the diamond and hey, presto, it's time to go. Even Bond's fliratious ways will have trouble trumping that.
