HARRY WINSTON – Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm

The feather used to be an almost sacred sign of status to mark a triumph. It was worn as a trophy on an ethnic-style necklace, springing from a hat or as a Native American headdress for example. As time and fashion passed, the feather disappeared but now it’s back as a full-fledged fine craft: feather marquetry is a skill that the Harry Winston brand has superbly showcased on its watch dials. The dial of this Midnight is like a cloth woven with amber goose feathers and thick black edges. Two slim rose gold hour and minute hands burst from the heart of the feather tapestry. The time functions are brought to life by a self-winding HW2008 calibre inside the rose gold case which measures 42.5mm precisely and bears Harry Winston’s signature three arches at 3 o’ clock.
