Winter Wonder Watch: Harry Winston Premier Blooming Snow 36mm

Winter Wonder Watch: Harry Winston Premier Blooming Snow 36mm

Harry Winston has long been known as the king of diamonds — from the days of the man himself who was said to have walked around with diamonds in his pockets from time to time.  Today, the brand remains a top purveyor and seller of premier diamonds and high jewelry, and also of top-quality watches. In fact, the brand builds some of the most complicated watches on the market, and some of the most scintillating. Part of the Harry Winston Premier collection, this Premier Blooming Snow 36mm high-jewelry watch offers extraordinary elegance. The Premier Blooming Snow 36mm (Ref. PRNAHM36WW016) houses the automatic HW2008 caliber and offers hours and minutes indications. As its name states, the 18-karat white gold case of this watch measures 36mm in diameter. The exquisite dial is set with 201 brilliant-cut diamonds, 105 brilliant-cut Paraiba tourmalines, and 68 brilliant-cut blue sapphires. Additionally, the case and lugs are set with diamonds and gems. In fact, the total gemstone content on the Harry Winston Premier Blooming Snow 36mm watch equates to: 256 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 2.94 carats), 118 brilliant-cut Paraiba tourmalines (approx. 1.29 carats), and 74 brilliant-cut blue sapphires (approx. 0.55 carats). With nearly 5 carats on the wrist, this watch can also double as a small weight. It is finished with a soft blue alligator strap and is water resistant to three bar — but I, for one, would not swim with it...

Time is Aflutter With the Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Papillion Automate Watch

More than three years in the making, this Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Papillion Automate wrist watch brings the beauty of nature — and the glory of automatons — to the wrist.  Featuring  a  stunning automaton butterfly amidst a shimmering garden of beauty, the watch brings together the brand’s grand expertise in haute joaillerie and haute horology. The translucent enamel painted gold butterfly flutters its wings in a remarkable display several times each hour. Each time the butterfly moves it can flutter as many as 19 times so that in any given hour, the wings will open and close more than 100 times.  Additionally, the wearer can activate the wings on demand by a press of the crown. The complex movement, which holds four patents, was developed exclusively for Van Cleef & Arpels. The highly detailed dial is created using a  mix of champlevé enamel, paillonne enamel, plique-a-jour (translucent) painting, gem setting and more. Round- and pear-shaped diamonds and colored sapphires outline the magnificent...
