Harry Winston’s Premier Lady Chronograph

Launched in 1989 as one of the first Harry Winston timepieces, the Premier design captures the pioneering spirit of the brand and continues to introduce world-first horological marvels, including the Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar.   The Premier 2010 collection brings an ultra-feminine feel to the chronograph by combining horological tradition with fine jewellery design.

Framed by an exquisite 39 mm gem-set white gold case, the dial is meticulous and delicately detailed. The off-centered diamond-set mother-of-pearl chronograph counters, each with its own personality, are discreetly juxtaposed. The materials are crafted using a magnificent marquetry-like motif to catch, hold and reflect the light. The inner bezel ring is adorned with a brilliant crown of diamonds in such a way that only the wearer can admire its full radiance. The innate refinement of the applied hour-markers creates a subtle contrast with the carefree numerals on the sunburst satin-brushed dial. The date appears at 6 o’clock in an ultra-simple round window. Meanwhile, the Harry Winston signature set with a single diamond gracefully follows the curve of a counter.

This dynamic approach to gem-setting is further expressed on the case. The gently beveled bezel is embellished with a double row of diamonds. The sides of the cabochon-set crown are paved with diamonds, and the folding clasp sparkles with the fire of the glittering gemstones. The Premier Lady Chronograph is also available with anthracite or blue satin-brushed dial versions.  Price on request

Dior Jewellery Collection

La D de Dior watches in 19mm and 42 mm versions

la mini d de Dior gold bracelet

Inspired by the 70’s, La D de Dior was born in 2003 with the tag line “A woman who decides to wear a man’s watch so that she is always thinking of him.” Its classical shape, reliable materials and movements – quartz or Zenith hand wound mechanical wowed one and all. The watch’s cheerful style, precious stones, noble and eternal metals and lacquered finish are marked by the poetic signature of Dior fine jewellery.

La D de Dior has a dual personality in its present avatar. In mini (19mm) or maxi (42mm) versions, it playfully revisits the Haute Couture taste for fairytale volumes. And when it adorns its dial with panther motifs in sapphires or diamonds and black lacquer, it does so in tribute to Mitza Bricard, Christain Dior’s elegant muse.

Dior watchmaking also draws its inspiration from the concept of refined and elegant Couture clothes being as beautiful on the inside as on the outside: such as, for example, the faces of the dials on the cases with their intricate graphic work and tinted sapphire glass that reveals the hidden luxury of the Dior Christal and Chiffre Rouge automatic movements. Price : La Mini De Dior ( steel strap with diamonds Rs 1,478k and La Mini De Dior (gold bracelet with diamonds) Rs 9,30k.
