Harry Winston presents the ladies’ Midnight Date Moon Phase Automatic 36mm equipped with a complication that tracks the phases of our celestial neighbor. With its dreamy white mother-of-pearl canvas set alight with twinkling stars, this exquisite timepiece is destined to exert a strong gravitational pull on your imagination.

A poetic complication

Harry Winston turns its gaze heavenward for inspiration and alights on the moon and its phases to animate the dial of this timepiece. Moon Phase complications are considered the most poetic and romantic of complications reminding us of the cyclical nature of time and the bewitching beauty of the moon. Harry Winston’s Midnight Date Moon Phase model displays the different faces of our satellite as it orbits the earth over 29.5 days in a crescent-shaped aperture on the dial. Floating in a midnight blue sky, the gold moon completes its course from new moon to full moon thanks to a sophisticated complication developed especially for this 36mm timepiece.

Moonstruck by the dial

The moon phase aperture is, in turn, suspended by pearly white clouds recreated by the iridescent mother-of-pearl used to embellish the dial. Positioned in the northern hemisphere of the dial, the hours and minutes counter glows with a halo of 43 brilliant- cut diamonds and features three larger diamonds as hour markers and the hallmark Harry Winston logo at 12 o’clock. Like two celestial bodies orbiting serenely in space, the date counter gently intersects the hours and minutes ring. To enhance legibility, the circumference of the date disk is highlighted and inscribed with numbers for the uneven days and gold dots for the even days of the month. And since Harry Winston is all about diamonds, a bright white diamond punctuates the name of the brand arching gracefully between 9 and 11 o’clock.

A beautiful movement for a beautiful timepiece

The movement for this timepiece is a miniaturized version of the 42mm Midnight Date Moon Phase and is the ideal female counterpart of the men’s timepiece. The mechanical automatic movement, which animates the moon phases, the date complication and the hours and minutes is equipped with a silicon balance spring beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The advantages of using silicon in the balance spring are numerous: lighter than metal, impervious to magnetic fields and corrosion, shock-resilient, flexible and less prone to deformation.

This avant-garde material will ensure years and years of impeccable service and optimize the overall isochronism of the movement.

Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the movement and the gold rotor are beautifully hand-finished and decorated with circular Côtes de Genève motifs – an exclusive feature of Harry Winston’s timepieces. With a power reserve of 68 hours, the time and date are set on the crown and the moon phases can be adjusted with a corrector hidden on the case at 8 o’clock. Presented on a white alligator leather strap with a pearly finishing matching with the mother of pearl dial, the 18-carat white or rose gold ardillon buckle secures the timepiece safely on the wrist.
