Chronograph Watch

Harry Winston (the watch arm) makes a living on high-end women's watches with a healthy amount of diamonds and quartz movements. Here however they are retaining the diamond part of the equation, but offering women a mechanical timepiece. The Premier Lady Chronograph is of the same design vein as the also new Harry Winston Midnight Chrono Tourbillon, but this women's watch pulls the design aesthetic off much (much) better. The mannerisms of the dial are new to Harry Winston. They actually remind me a lot of Boucheron.

Each watch comes in an 18k gold case that is 39mm wide with diamond set cases and dials. Large diamonds line the bezel and lugs, while diamonds are set around the periphery of the dial, as well as in the chronograph subdials. Probably the most "blinged out" chrono I've seen. While the subdials have their hands in the normal position, the dials are of different sizes for a faux asymmetrical look. The subdials also have mother-of-pearl elements.

Coming in three dial colors (silver, blue, and anthracite), the watch has a total of 317 (4.4 carats) of diamonds all over it. While I am not sure what the movement inside the watch is, it has the same layout as a Swiss ETA 2894 automatic movement - which might be what is inside. A good looking - sort of sporty feeling - lady's watch make ultra lux by all the diamonds.
