Harry Winston’s Midnight Hours

Laurie Kahle

Harry Winston’s sci-fi Opus Eleven may have grabbed the headlines this year with its iconoclastic time display, but the brand’s refined Harry Winston Midnight Collection promises to become a future pillar of the brand. With its classic round shape, svelte gold case, minimalist baton indexes, and beveled hands, the 42 mm Harry Winston Midnight Automatic ($21,300) embodies timeless elegance. Meanwhile, Art Deco undertones infuse the Harry Winston Midnight Big Date ($30,700) with its circular guilloché engraving and off-center satin-brushed time display at 12 o’clock. The solitaire diamond set above the double-window date display at 6 o’clock is a nod to the single gem Mr. Winston used to keep in his pocket as a touchstone. Harry Winston also talks to the ladies, offering Midnight in two sizes for women ($14,000 to $20,300), with or without the house’s famous diamonds. (www.harrywinston.com)
