There are a total of 73 diamonds

 

Like many Harry Winston watches, the new Midnight Automatic 29mm is also decorated with diamonds, 73 of them to be precise :) . The case itself is decorated with 64 expertly set brilliant-cut diamonds. Although the timepiece is the smallest in the collection, the size of the diamonds is still the same as on other Midnight models. With its large gemstones, the Midnight Automatic 29mm creates a sense of luxury, capturing the signature glamorous spirit of Harry Winston’s fine jewellery. At 3 o’clock, near the crown, there are three larger diamonds. A signature Harry Winston feature, the three diamonds recall the shape of the arched doorway of the brand’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon in New York.

Effortlessly elegant and timelessly classical, Harry Winston’s Midnight series includes watches of superlative simplicity that combine the purity of design with the tradition of fine Swiss watchmaking. The Midnight Automatic 29mm is no exception. Housed in a 29mm case, the newest Harry Winston timepiece comes in two versions: 18k rose gold (ref. MIDAHM29RR001) and 18k white gold (ref. MIDAHM29WW001). Both are water resistant to 30 meters and feature transparent sapphire case backs. Each model has a beautiful white mother of pearl dial. With its soft, billowing cloud formations, the dial is a background for the feminine gold Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o´clock, a spectacular emerald-cut diamond at 12, and eight arrow-shaped hour markers, each highlighted by a brilliant-cut diamond. Completing the dial are two gently tapered central hands.

The brand’s first 29mm model to feature a mechanical movement

 

The new Midnight Automatic 29mm is a special model because it is the brand’s first 29mm watch to be powered by a mechanical movement. Harry Winston took into account the growing number of women who appreciate fine mechanical calibers, and decided to equip the timepiece with a smaller high-end mechanism. Featuring 20 jewels, the self-winding caliber HW2010 is equipped with the latest watchmaking technology which includes a flat silicon balance spring, rhodium plating, circular graining, and of course the circular Côtes de Genève. The movement itself works at a frequency 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of approximately 40 hours. Completing the Midnight Automatic 29mm is a stylish white pearl alligator leather strap. The strap is secured with either a 18k white gold or 18k rose gold ardillon buckle.
