Harry Winston – Avenue Dual Time Automatic21 December 2015
Avenue Dual Time Automatic
The Avenue Dual Time is decisively masculine in design and an absolute embodiment of Harry Winston’s signature style. Though in an entirely new case, it incorporates the basic design principles of the House’s Avenue Collection
This timepiece embodies the House’s unique style with its use of Zalium™, an ultra-light alloy developed by and exclusive to Harry Winston. It not only allows for comfortable wear but also defends against scratches and tarnishing. For the first time, Harry Winston also uses Sedna™ gold, giving the timepiece a warmer color and finer finish.
The indications are split into two zones on two floors, with two levels of display, two types of indication and two styles of finish. The main time zone is offset on the right and has two hands under smoked sapphire crystal.
On the left, a second dial, closer to the crystal, reveals local time. The careful arrangement of vertical openings gives the Avenue Dual Time a unique personality. The local time zone’s hands successively cross these windows, vanishing from one to reappear in the next.
The unique off-center dual time indicators are driven by a movement, superlative in quality and true to the Harry Winston standard. The caliber HW3502 epitomizes the two core principles of Harry Winston’s watchmaking: the off-center indications and the retrograde display, both key components of this timepiece and its movement. To simplify, the crown controls all functions
