A new elegant timepiece is coming from the house of Harry Winston. The renowned American luxury jeweler and watchmaker has recently expanded its acclaimed Ocean collection with the Ocean Biretrograde Automatic 42mm – a watch evocative of a ” a majestic ship on the horizon” that ” navigates the oceans of time with power and precision”. The watch industry can sometimes be really creative with the descriptions of watches :) . Featuring sophisticated retrograde complications and diamonds, the new Ocean Biretrograde Automatic 42mm represents a tribute to the brand’s founder Mr. Harry Winston – the legendary “King of Diamonds”. Ever since it first ventured in the world of watchmaking in 1989, Harry Winston has been incorporating its founder’s passion for first-class stones and refined jewelry design into the sophisticated and highly technological domain of watches.

In total, there are 367 diamonds


The Harry Winston’s Ocean collection consists of timepieces that feature a modern balance of casual elegance and sophisticated watch mechanisms. Housed in luxurious gold cases, these watches features some of watchmaking’s most revered complications. The new Harry Winston Ocean Biretrograde Automatic 42mm has two of the brand’s trademark complications – off-centered hours and minutes and a double retrograde display. The hours and minute subdial is encircled by three rings of brilliant-cut diamonds. Positioned at 8 and 4 o’clock respectively, the two retrograde subdials display the small seconds and day of the week. The semi-circular counters feature diamond borders and are decorated with a beautiful wavy guilloché design evocative of tide marks in the sand. The retrograde seconds function follows the curve from zero to thirty and then instantaneously jumps to the beginning. On the other hand (no pun intended :) ), the days of the week hand moves every 24 hours and performs a sweeping jump on Sunday at midnight.
