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.
