Seven years after the release of the first Harry Winston’s Ocean Biretrograde, this exceptional watch is available in new color options. The renewed versions feature the aesthetic codes of the haute horlogerie Ocean Biretrograde, bringing the one-of-a-kind appeal to this beautiful watch with new dial colors and a three-dimensional design. These new models are intended for both men and women.
Harry Winston has presented 16 different models of the new Ocean Biretrograde, with choices ranging from strap to bracelet, as well as from unset to partially and fully set. Probably the most impressive renewed Ocean Biretrograde watch is the model housed in elegant 18-karat rose gold or 18-karat white gold case with a fixed bezel set with sparkling diamonds. Its gorgeous case boasts some brand’s signature details, such as three arches at the 3 o’clock position which subtly embrace the crown. The 36mm case is set with 57 brilliant-cut diamonds (weighing circa 2.15 carats).
Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a stunning dial which is created with a graduated sunray diamond-point finish encircling the hours and minutes counter which is set at the 12 o’clock position and graduating into larger diamond points as they fan away and spread out across the dial. A day display is placed between 3 and 5 o’clock positions, and it is well-balanced with a seconds counter which is situated between 7 and 9 o’clock positions. All three sub-dials are finished with a circular snail pattern that complements the diamond points. There is also a round black-on-white date aperture located at the 6 o’clock position.
The new Ocean Biretrograde timepiece is equipped with the in-house manufactured caliber HW1029 mechanical movement which provides no less than 42 hours of power reserve when fully charged. The mechanism consists of 256 individual parts and it is finished with a gold skeletonized rotor, Cotes de Genève, circular graining and chamfered bridges which are all visible through a transparent case back.
Besides the choice between the white gold and rose gold models, there is also a choice between two types of wristlets: a leather strap and a gold bracelet. The model attached to a partially-set bracelet is encrusted with 120 brilliant-cut diamonds (about 1.95 carats) of which 36 diamonds are set on the buckle, while the fully set bracelet model comes with 372 brilliant-cut diamonds (approximately 5.45 carats).
