The last batch of Harry Winston
watches I saw were complex technical marvels with highly unique designs suitable enough for magazine covers. Now the shock-watch luxury brand brings a more elegant lady's watch to the table with the "Talk To Me, Harry Winston" watch. It isn't obvious when you view the watch, but it has a little gimmick to it. Consider the fictional "king of diamonds" who for pleasure rolls loose diamonds in his hands and between his fingers. This concept is metaphorically transcended into the Talk To Me, Harry Winston watch via a roller on the side of the watch (that bears the title of the watch). This roller can be spun to reveal the entire title of the watch, as well as the 24 diamonds on the ring as is spins around the watch case - something to do with your hands when idle. According to the name of the timepiece, you may even speak to it, but don't expect it to talk back.
With an 18k white gold case bearing 290 applied diamonds, the glitzy sun-burst pattern makes for a striking, but simple woman's timepiece. There is also an even more 'diamondier" version of the watch with a full 340 diamonds on the case. Inside the watch is a Swiss quartz movement and the strap is satin. Look for a release at Baselworld soon.
