Object of Desire: Harry Winston Premier Precious Micromosaic Watch

By Lynette Kee

Tung Pham/Tok Wei LunThe Harry Winston Premier Precious Micromosaic timepiece in diamond-encrusted rose gold with a raspberry pearl alligator strap.

Like mosaic art that tessellates sporadically across the capital city of Italy, illustrating the story of the Roman Empire since the 5th century, the latest chapter in Harry Winston’s Métiers d’Arts narrative is told through coloured glass and geometric designs. Presented in both white and rose gold cases, each Premier Precious Micromosaic timepiece is fully handcrafted, and limited to 30 pieces in each colour combination. On the dial, contrasting fragments of translucent and opaque glass fit together seamlessly like a puzzle. Below the surface, artisans of the house go through a breath-stopping process — from the slow-heating of the glass to shaping (cutting it into small pieces when it has cooled) and assembling these tiny glass pieces. Finally, the mosaic dial is polished and sealed in an oven until it gleams like the diamonds paved around it. American jeweller Harry Winston’s keen sense of presenting timepieces in artistic forms has yet again culminated in a new watch design that could easily pass as a bejewelled accessory.
