New York, its extravagant nightlife, the Art Deco, Broadway’s brilliant lights inspired Harry Winston with an exceptional high jewellery timepiece, hidden in a precious clutch’s clasp. The New York Companion.
New York is at the very heart of Harry Winston’s inspiration. Since the Maison’s founding, in 1932, the Big Apple’s vibrant atmosphere provided Harry Winston with the perfect setting for their collections.
The New York Companion: the perfect tribute to New York and its nightlife.
The clutch is designed to fit in the palm of your hand, and it consists of a 18k white cold case coated with glossy black lacquer which is the background for the magnificent gemstones decorating this high jewellery clutch.
A pompon fashioned like a skyscraper sparkles with the light of 58 white baguette-cut diamonds and dominates a cityscape of avenues and streets, punctuated with green and red lights. The red lights come from 8 baguette-cut rubies (1.62 carats), while the green ones from 21 baguette-cut emeralds (3.22 carats). The city’s white illumination is given by 486 diamonds (36.67 carats) combined with mother-of-pearl.
At the top of the skyscraper, on the clutch, there is the hallmark Harry Winston emerald-cut, and underneath it, a precious timepiece.
By swivelling the black onyx cover a secret watch appears, allowing to check the time in total privacy and discretion. The black onyx dial is offset with a bezel enhanced with diamonds which sparkle like fallen snow.
Inside the clutch, once opened, one will find mirrors, placed on either side of the interior case, allowing the make-up refresh in total comfort. The large mirror is decorated with delicate mother-of-pearl marquetry and baguette-cut diamonds, while the smaller ones present contrasting white and Tahitian mother-of-pearl inlays.
The New York Companion by Harry Winston is a three-in-one one-of-a-kind creation: a high jewellery evening bag, with a secret watch and a vanity mirror. An objet d’art which captures the Maison’s intrinsic New York world and gives back its constant quest for luxury and impeccable quality. CC
