Harry Winston’s new Premier Precious Butterfly Automatic watch collection unites horology with lepidoptery: each of the four timepieces feature a dial decorated with the iridescent powder found on a butterfly’s wing. The result is a kaleidoscope of inimitably vibrant springtime colour—ranging from chic cool tones to effervescent sunset hues—framed by 57 brilliant-cut diamonds set in an 18-karat white or rose gold case. Both beautiful and precise, the timepieces feature rounded graining, rhodium plating, and circular Côtes de Genève movement finishes. Many cultures view the butterfly as a symbol of grace; now Harry Winston captures the beauty of this elegant insect—without even using a net.
