The one amazing thing about New York is its sheer energy. New Yorkers move at a frenetic pace; they thrive on it. The Avenue Classic Automatic is perfectly in line with this spirit. It subsists on the kinetic energy delivered to its inner core as the wearer is on the go. Every swing of the wrist winds the movement, calibre HW2009, and keeps it running to tell the time. For women who appreciate time-honoured watchmaking, it is worth noting that this is the first Avenue Classic model with an automatic movement. Yet, it wouldn’t be a Harry Winston without the requisite generous sprinkling of diamonds—and this beauty doesn’t disappoint. It is fully studded with stones: 42 brilliant-cut diamonds and an emerald-cut one on the dial, 29 brilliant-cut sparklers on the case and a further 138 brilliant-cut ones all over the bracelet.
