Pre Baselworld 2015: Harry Winston Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Harry Winston has produced some fantastic watches in the past.  We are big fans of their Opus series which is done in conjunction with leading independent watchmakers.  For Baselworld 2015, a small preview from the Midnight collection.  The Harry Winston Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm.

The eye is immediately drawn to the dial of the watch.  It looks like a piece of natural wood. But the pattern is actually made up of bird feathers. Each remige or flight feather is carefully selected, shaped and then placed under a magnifying glass, so as to ensure optimal precision. The resulting marquetry motif plays on alternating colors that impart a vibrant, dynamic rhythm to the dial.
