Here we have yet another classic-looking timepiece from the watchmaking house of Harry Winston. The new watch that joins Harry Winston’s Midnight Collection is named Harry Winston Midnight Date Moonphase Automatic 42mm.
This newcomer boasts an amazing combination of arches and textures. Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a sunburst finish dial which comprises an off-set date indicator and a moonphase display. A date complication is placed in a recessed zone, thus providing that the numerals stand out, while the moonphase disk features a rough and textured appearance in deep, metallic blue. The gorgeous silver colored dial also comprises two applied gold indexes at 3 and 9 o’clock positions, and there is also one diamond (weighing 0.003 carats) which is placed in the upper part of its dial.
The beating heart of the latest member of the Midnight Collection is the in-house manufactured caliber HW3203 which consists of 279 individual parts. The impeccable mechanical movement oscillates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and it is built on 28 jewels. The mechanism features an 18-karat white gold open-worked rotor that is visible from the see through window on the case back. The white gold rotor boasts beautiful haute horlogerie finishes, including Côtes de Genève, circular graining and chamfered bridges.
Harry Winston Midnight Date Moonphase Automatic 42mm is available in two variants. The first one is housed in an 18-karat rose gold case, while the second one is delivered in an 18-karat white gold case.
As the name suggests, the elegant case of the new Midnight Date Moonphase Automatic timepiece measures 42mm in diameter. The watch boasts a decent level of water resistance – up to 30 meters (about 100 feet).
The new Harry Winston Midnight model comes with a hand-sewn black alligator leather strap, ending with an 18-karat gold ardillon buckle.
