Inspired by their house’s history and the legendary Hope Diamond, Harry Winston proudly reveals the new Emerald timepiece collection

For a maison with a renowned catalog of world famous diamonds, the new Emerald collection by Harry Winston is a fitting series of exquisite timepieces that alludes to the American jeweller and watchmaker's storied legacy. Exhibiting the iconic emerald-cut on each watch, this elegant silhouette is undeniably a Harry Winston signature, so much so that the house's insignia is based on this very motif.

Similar to the intrinsic dazzle and beauty of the maison's emerald-cut gems, the new collection takes after this stunning facet and simultaneously echoes the design of the captivating Hope Diamond — a 45.52-carat stone that once sat in the house's archives prior to its permanent display case at the Smithsonian Museum. Utterly feminine and flattering, the lines of the Emerald collection trace two satin sunburst watch faces of either intense blue or snowy white, complemented by bezels and horns paved entirely in brilliant diamonds. Fabricated with the maison's expert craftsmanship, the radiance of each watch is highlighted by diamond hour markers studded at three, six and nine o' clock, and rounded off by winding satin straps colour-matched to the dials.

Equipped with a calibre HW1040 quartz movement, the Emerald collection is also available in a sinuous Milanese mesh bracelet crafted in rose and white gold. Magnificent and incomparable, these Harry Winston creations are true compelling contemporary classics.

The Emerald collection is available at the Harry Winston boutique in ION Orchard.
