Limited to only 50 pieces, the Midnight Precious Weaving is the latest Metiers d’Arts luxury timepiece from Harry Winston. The Mother of Pearl natural iridescence of the Midnight Precious Weaving watch reveals itself in different ways according to the light.
The new watch is presented in a delicate 18K white gold case and explores a rare Japanese weaving technique, in which silk gold thread and thin pieces of natural mother of pearl are woven together. The House’s precious weaving technique was first introduced in 2016 with the Premier 36mm timepieces.
This unique art form was derived from “Raden,” the ancient Japanese practice of applying shells to wood and lacquer surfaces.The Midnight Precious Weaving Automatic 42mm marks the House’s second exploration with hand-weaving as a way to transform a timepiece into a creative canvas. By combining mother-of-pearl – an organic material from the sea – with land based silkworms,the House’s designers create a unique tapestry with a timeless quality.
“The Midnight Precious Weaving unveils the sublime work of Harry Winston’s craftsmen whose hand-woven know-how honors the founder’s boundless creative spirit,” said Harry Winston house.
The Midnight Precious Weaving Automatic 42mm is powered by a high-end mechanical automatic movement with beautiful hand-finishings, which can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back. Equipped with the latest technology, in the form of a flat silicon balance spring, this movement promises to keep impeccable time on par with the everlasting beauty of the dial.
Harry Winston’s Midnight Collection pays tribute to the tradition of fine watchmaking in its most timeless form. Appealing to both men and women, each model is produced in rose or white gold beautifully combining purity and elegance. The vast collection includes Midnight Date Moon Phase Automatic, Midnight Diamond Stalactites Automatic, Midnight Big Date, Midnight Infinity, Midnight Retrograde Second, to name jus a few of the models.

Another ultra-luxurious release from Harry Winston is the Premier Diamond Second ladies watch. In contrast to the deep white mother-of-pearl background, a burgundy mother-of-pearl crescent embraces the ex-centered hours and minutes counter of the exquisite watch from Harry Winston’s ateliers. Three white gold hands, adorned with three pink sapphires, dance along the counter to the beat of the seconds, bringing a beautiful display of motion to the dial.
The new Harry Winston Premier Diamond Second is expertly crafted with two-tone mother-of-pearl and vibrant diamonds.
