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 on.
