Harry Winston Diane

    The idea behind the Diane "was to create a very strong watch for a woman," says vice president of design Sandrine de Laage. "We wanted to combine the importance of high complication with a unique and feminine style." Harry Winston collaborated with complication specialist Renaud Papi to design the Diane’s minute repeater, which offers prestige and a touch of the feminine in each of the line’s 20 limited-edition watches. Renaud Papi developed the technical side of the movement but relied upon Harry Winston’s designers to decorate nearly all available plates and bridges in a complex, leaf-motif lattice. Crafted in white gold for resonance, the Diane’s case is voluptuously curved, and the proportions of the hands, lugs, and bezel are expanded and softened.
