Premier Perpetual Calendar

A creative balance between aesthetic and technical design

The Watch Quote™ - July 3rd, 2010



Premier: A collection that embodies the essence of Harry Winston timepieces – the boldness to achieve uncompromised excellence and the creativity of mechanical watchmaking. Launched in 1989 as one of the first Harry Winston timepieces, the Premier design captures the pioneering spirit of the brand and continues to introduce world-first horological marvels, including the Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar.

Highlighting Harry Winston’s inimitable sophistication, Premier watches strike a creative balance between aesthetic and technical design for a rare and original expression of time. The iconic case features Harry Winston’s signature three arches, an invitation to step into the brand universe. Offset dials, retrograde indications and a multi-layered effect accentuate the creativity and dimensionality in design.

Enriching the line with a distinctly modern touch, two new models are being introduced this year: the Premier Perpetual Calendar for men; and the Premier Lady Chronograph for women.


Premier Perpetual Calendar

In 1989 Harry Winston introduced the first Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar, sparking a revolution in contemporary mechanical watchmaking. Two decades later, this iconic design returns to center-stage with a blend of strength and sophistication. The 41mm white gold case has been reinvented with even more refinement, adding a subtle groove in the side to highlight its elegant contours, while maintaining the three signature arches.

The highly dimensional dial articulates the quality of craftsmanship and places the focus firmly on the complications. Surrounded by a snailed black base, the silver colored Côtes de Genève pays eloquent tribute to fine watchmaking tradition. The anthracite color contrast highlights the various indications: off-centered hours and minutes, retrograde months at 10 o’clock, and retrograde dates at 7 o’clock are arranged in a contemporary manner, while the understated leap-year and moon-phase apertures are set opposite each other. Touches of Harry Winston’s signature blue shade further accentuate the design and enhance the readability of the dial. Driven by a mechanical self-winding movement with a 45-hour power reserve, the Premier Perpetual Calendar is also available with a silvered dial.
