Harry Winston - Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm

Harry Winston Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm

For its latest masculine creation, Harry Winston enters an unexpected field of expression, marrying horology with feather marquetry.

In 2012, the Harry Winston played a trailblazing role in the world of watching making, offering an unusual combination of two ancient art forms that did not seem destined to meet and mingle: horology and plumasserie (feather artistry), a rare and almost forgotten craft.

With the new Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm, horological expertise and the animal inspired craft of plumasserie meet again on a rich new canvas, reminiscent of finely textured fabric, like that used in bespoke tailored suits. 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. These intense colors evoke amber-tinted vetiver roots, bulrushes and cedar wood, while the rose gold of the case is the perfect complement to the brown alligator strap.

Each piece of the Midnight Feathers Automatic 42mm is truly one of a kind, with each hand-crafted dial naturally varying according to the feather and the touch of the master artisan.

The slim case features the House’s timeless design, three arches, a tribute to the iconic gates of Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue salon. The transparent case-back reveals the refined finishes of the mechanical automatic winding movement HW2008, driving the hours and minutes functions. The skeleton oscillating weight, the circular graining, the parabolic Côtes de Genève and the beveled bridges all confirm a proud heritage of watchmaking excellence.
