Harry Winston Debuts New Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom Timepiece, Inspired by the Beauty of the Japanese Cherry Blossom, Ahead of Baselworld 2017

Harry Winston has set our hearts aflutter with their latest creation inspired by the natural beauty of the Japanese cherry blossom: the Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom.

The blooming of the sakura cherry blossom tree is a cherished cultural event in Japan. Every year, people gather at the base of cherry trees to hold hanami, or a flower-viewing festivals, when the beloved pink and white flowers bloom. The brief blooming of the cherry blossom flowers represent the coming of spring, or new beginnings, and also serve as a reminder of the short but precious time we each have on this earth.

The brand expertly utilizes the natural iridescence of the  pale green-blue mother-of-pearl dial to emulate soft clouds gently blowing across the sky. The focal point of the dial, however, are the 39 brilliant-cut white diamonds and 29 brilliant-cut pink sapphires, all of varying size, which are scattered across the dial along white gold “branches” and call to mind the tranquil beauty of the Japanese cherry blossom.

The case of the Avenue Classic Cherry Blossom was inspired by Harry Winston’s flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York. The art-deco styling serves as a stark, and yet also complementary, contrast to the more traditional influence of the dial. Tying it all together is a vibrant blue-green alligator strap which emphasizes the beautiful mother-of-pearl dial. This timepiece, which represents both an enchanting work of art and an exhibition of the excellent watchmaking which Harry Winston has become known for, leaves us anxious and excited to see what they’ll unveil at Baselworld 2017.
