Harry Winston Premier Sunflower Automatic 36mm

Radiating sunshine and joy, the combination of white diamonds, yellow sapphires, mother-of-pearl, and the Sunflower motif unmistakably nod to the namesake fine jewellery collection. Encased in a sophisticated white gold Premier case, this new timepiece dazzles while marking the passing hours.


very creation from the House of Harry Winston bears the unmistakable mark of its founder. A keen observer of nature, Mr. Winston possessed an extraordinary ability to transform nature’s precious gifts into objects of everlasting beauty. Inspired by the sunflower’s grace, symmetry and radiant petals, Mr. Winston first translated the fleeting beauty of the flower into an iconic and timeless jewellery motif in the 1950s, inspiring generations of Harry Winston designers.

Taking design cues from the Sunflower fine jewellery collection, the Premier Sunflower Timepiece pays tribute to the vivid sunshine yellow of these flowers, making it the perfect complement to any of the fine jewellery pieces within the collection.

The Premier Sunflower is an eloquent canvas of Harry Winston’s ongoing exploration into the decorative potential of mother-of-pearl. Selecting the finest beaded mother-of-pearl, Harry Winston’s talented stone cutters carve the delicate, highly brittle nacre into three-dimensional shapes, emulating precious gemstone cuts.

The Premier Sunflower flaunts a sunshine-yellow mother-of-pearl dial, basking in the light of 120 brilliant-cut diamonds and eight yellow sapphires. Twelve sunflowers, scintillating with the light of brilliant-cut diamonds, mark the passing hours on the peripheral chapter ring. The next ring is embellished with 12 yellow mother-of-pearl cabochons guar- ding the inner sanctum. Slightly smaller in size than the sunflowers marking the hours, the overlapping diamond flowers in the center feature a beaming yellow sapphire in their hearts.

Perfectly proportioned, the sophisticated white gold Premier case has a diameter of 36mm and a slender silhouette of 8.4mm, ensuring it sits beautifully on the wrist. Sparkling with 57 brilliant-cut diamonds, the diamond-set lugs recall the famous arched entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon.
