Harry Winston is arguably one of the few brands who have successfully bridged the gap between jewelry and watches. The brand embodies the very best of American glamour, combining a classic elegance with an avant-garde aesthetic. The iconic Avenue Collection is inspired by Fifth Avenue: the home to Harry Winston’s very first Salon.
Each of their New York-inspired Avenue Classic Automatic novelty pieces feature classic arches at 12 and 6 ‘o clock to reflect the famous arched doorway of Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Salon as well as a new minute track outlined with 42 diamonds in the shape of Mr. Winston’s favorite cut (read: emerald, in case you were wondering).
The new Avenue Classic Automatic stays true to its roots with a refined rectangular 18-karat gold case set with 29 brilliant-cut diamonds and vintage typography but competes with some of the more modern pieces of today with sophisticated automatic Swiss caliber. In order to keep the Avenue case’s iconic lean shape, they have allowed the rotor to protrude slightly on the caseback, protected by a sapphire crystal glass.
An elegant and feminine timepiece to add to your collection, the Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom pays homage to the Japanese Sakura season. The delicate sprinkling of 39 brilliant-cut white diamonds and 29 brilliant-cut pink sapphires across the dial make up the flowers and petals of the cherry blossom tree—a reminder of how precious life is and the importance of time.
The watch comes in an 18-karat white gold case with a pale green-blue mother-of-pearl and 18-karat white gold buckle and green-blue alligator strap to match.
Always on the go? Harry Winston’s Avenue C™ Dual Time is equipped with a second-time zone for those of you who like to travel in style—with both counters powered by two independent quartz movements for optimal precision—as well as the ability to set both the hour and the minute hands using the double crowns on the side of the case.
Stay connected with friends and family at home with the smaller home time counter displayed in Arabic numerals while using the larger counter for local time in Roman numerals. What’s more? The minute track changes from a vertical positon in the local time counter to a horizontal position for home time.
A timepiece, which looks to both the past and the future, the Harry Winston Avenue C™ Mini Moon Phase, is one of the smallest movements with a moon phase complication on the market. So, as to not compromise on Harry Winston’s feminine and slim design, Swiss watchmakers have kept the size and height of the movement to a minimum.
Available in 18-karat white and rose gold models, the Avenue C™ Mini Moon Phase features engraved floral motifs and a small, crescent-shaped aperture for the moon phase complication inside the minute track along with a seamless alligator leather strap and a pearl finish.
