Harry Winston Midnight Diamond Stalactites
Featured Watch of the Day: Harry Winston’s Midnight Diamond Stalactites
Talk to me, Harry Winston, tell me all about it! Today’s featured timepiece is a new one from Harry Winston: the Midnight Diamond Stalactites Automatic. This 36mm ladies timepiece is available in two variations; it is available in white gold on a white satin strap, and in rose gold on a taupe alligator leather strap.
Stalactites are found growing from cave ceilings and are formed over the course of thousands of years as dripping water rich in minerals calcifies. In the image above, stalactites can be seen growing down from the cave ceiling, while stalagmites can be seen growing up from the cave floor.
The Midnight Diamond Stalactites timepieces each feature designs resembling these marvels of nature on the dials. The stalactites on the white gold version (Reference # MIDAHM36WW001) are made of 0.46ct of pink sapphires and 0.17ct of rubies set on a beaded mother-of-pearl dial. The stalactites on the rose gold version (Reference # MIDAHM36RR001) are made of brilliant-cut diamonds set on a Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial.

Each of the Midnight Diamond Stalactites timepieces are equipped with the Harry Winston automatic HW2008 caliber movement which has 28 jewels and 28,800 vibrations per hour. Both versions of this timepiece feature a diamond bezel and diamond lugs, making them even more striking. They each are covered with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and come with an open sapphire crystal case back, so you can see the movement in action. Neither timepiece features a date display, so as not to detract from the gorgeous stalactites design. Both timepieces are water resistant to 3 bar, or approximately 30 meters.
So what do you think? Do you love the stalactites design and appreciate the fact that Harry Winston draws inspiration from nature, or do you think this particular design needs to stay in a cave? Let us know!
