Often known for its innovative design philosophy, Harry Winston has a story to tell apart from its jewelry collections. Entering the horological world in 1989, it established itself as a pioneer of fine timepieces to achieve technical sophistication. The lot here offered is a very fine specimen of the Ocean family but specifically made for the underwater world. The solid 37 mm yellow-gold case has screwed down back and crown, some fancy-lobed central and mobile lugs and a graduated unidirectional revolving bezel, especially made for the decompression times. The electric blue dial has applied luminous yellow-gold round indexes, outer minutes/seconds divisions in gilt color, the aperture for the date at 6 and below the Harry Winston logo at 12 o’clock, the depth indication for 300 FT. With a fancy taste and a special bezel that reminds the “Thunderbird” that can be found on the Rolex, this very watch is preserved incredibly well.
