They also mirror the color of Winston’s famous Hope Diamond. Rich alligator leather bands perfectly complement the luminous precious metals and gemstones of Harry Winston’s luxury watch cases. Functional as well as fashionable, many Harry Winston watches also feature a calendar display and chronograph functionality.
The Histoire de Tourbillon collection embodies Harry Winston’s commitment to innovation and artistry.
