The Manual Wind: Harry Winston Avenue Dual Time Automatic

hwatime1Once an avant avant-garde brand, always an avant-garde brand.  Once that original plunge into obscure design and complication is taken, free reign ensues.  Harry Winston might have started off as a jewelry brand, but years ago they took that plunge.  From the limited edition series of Opus watches, down to their most basic production watch, Harry Winston is certainly avant-garde.  Their latest design, the Harry Winston Avenue Dual Time, takes their rectangular Avenue case shape and makes it interesting.

This vertical rectangle, in either sedna rose gold or Zalium (Harry Winston’s own ultra light allow) measures a substantial 55mmx36mm.  Sandwiched between two sapphire crystals is Harry Winston’s in house calibre HW3502 movement.  This movement features day, date, time, day/night indicator,
retrograde hours, and a second timezone.  hwatime3Above the movement lies an eccentric dial.  Layered and slightly skeletonized, its a good thing Harry Winston decided to label the dial in order to read the time.  The local and hometime are both labeled.  The depth and finish on this dial is very impressive.  For added comfort on the wrist, the crown has been placed at the 5 o’clock position as to not dig into your wrist.

This new Winston is by all means a Winston.  Impressive finishing, complicated in-house movement, exotic metals, and of course eccentric style.  One of their first pieces in their Avenue case for men, they have certainly made a statement.  The rectangular case is striking in size and finish, and finished with those infamous Harry Winston tongues at 12 and 6.  These avant-garde beauties do come at a high price though.  You wont get away with one of these for less than $30,000.
