Third, the incorporation of an automatic movement with an updated balance spring is something that I feel also shows the brand’s devotion to time precision because a actual jeweler-watchmaker, not only a jeweler who happens to make a couple fancy watches. Harry Winston – hugely successful as a star favorite because of their stunning one-of-a-kind gemstone inventions and, only afterwards, equally-as-elegant women’s and men’s watches – might have easily lasted to create easy quartz diamond-encrusted jewelry-watches and always found customers.Even though plume along with flight-inspired watches have been around the scene in a significant way since about 2013, they’ve become increasingly more evolved in their interpretations. The most well-known are, of course, Dior and their Grand Bal Plume, which ingeniously made the feathered element to the rotor component to enhance beauty in motion; Cartier’s Marquetry Parrot, that imagined a feathered layout but crafted instead from individually fashioned flower petal pieces; and Graff’s iconic butterfly watch, showcasing 1,641 diamonds combined with 108 multicolored sapphires in a kaleidoscope of shifting colours. Each piece highlights a different new design technique.In the Harry Winston Premier Precious Butterfly collection, the situation is made from either 18K white gold or rose gold with 2.32ct across 57 brilliant-cut white diamonds in a frame pattern adorning the bezel. The matching buckle is also set with diamonds, tonal 18K gold, and a dramatic black lace strap.
