Widely known as the the king of diamonds, Mr Harry Winston left an indelible mark in the high jewellery industry with his contemporary approach to cutting gemstones. More than just setting them in a conventional manner, Winston’s philosophy was to always showcase the stones’ beauty with minimalist mountings.
The Emerald collection — named after one of Winston’s favourite diamond cuts, also known as the emerald cut — stands out because of its distinctive octagonal case shape and unique dial. The best part? The watches are all petite, and come in very feminine frames. Until now.
Today, the Emerald collection adds the 33mm case into its fold. Available in 18k white and rose gold, the octagonal case comes with beveled edges, and the classic gold Harry Winston logo at 12 o’clock is balanced by a beveled date window at 6 o’clock. The new members come in both quartz and automatic versions, as well as elegant alligator leather straps — blue for the white gold and brown for the rose gold.
