The Cherry on the Cake

India Today - - LAST LOOK -

A thing of beauty is a joy for­ever, may seem like a tired cliché but any­one who has wit­nessed the achingly short span of the Ja­panese Sakura or the ethe­real bloom of the Cherry blos­som will un­der­stand. The House of Harry Win­ston has tried to cap­ture the ephemeral beauty of the flow­er­ing cherry blos­som tree on the dial of its en­tic­ing Av­enue Clas­sic Cherry Blos­som time­piece. The mag­nif­i­cent scenery is an ode to one of na­ture’s most glo­ri­ous spec­ta­cles and is adorned with di­a­monds and pink sap­phires, pro­tected in a case that mir­rors the ar­chi­tec­ture of Harry Win­ston’s Fifth Av­enue Flag­ship Sa­lon in New York. The back­ground is crafted from pale green-blue mother-of-pearl and uses the nat­u­ral iri­des­cence of the nacre to sim­u­late clouds on a blus­tery spring day with a flurry of 39 bril­liant-cut white di­a­monds and 29 bril­liant­cut pink sap­phires scat­tered across the dial; some of the flow­ers are at­tached to the white gold branches of the tree, while oth­ers are cap­tured as they float gen­tly to the ground. The con­cept of time as eter­nity in an ephemeral blos­som couldn’t be more po­etic. Price on re­quest; Avail­abil­ity bou­tique out­lets
