Introducing the Harry Winston Emerald

Two things inspired the creation of the Emerald collection. First thing: in 1949, New Yorker Harry Winston (1896-1978) bought an intense gem of exceptional size and composition, the Hope diamond, before parting with it in 1958. Second thing: the jeweller’s favourite gem cut was the emerald cut (rectangle with truncated corners). These two things have joined forces to create a rectangular timepiece in electric blue.

The small white gold case is reminiscent of an emerald paved with 53 brilliant-cut diamonds. The HW 1040 quartz movement inside the watch brings to life two small silver hands tracking the hours and minutes. The hour rim on the softly sunburst dial sparkles subtly: three diamonds at 3, 6 and 9 and an HW insignia at 12.

This dazzling watch has a blue satin twin strap with a diamond and white gold buckle to wrap it around your wrist.
