Queen of the Ocean Collection

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Ocean Collection by Harry Winston. To celebrate, the maison presents the 18-carat white-gold Ocean 20th Anniversary Biretrograde Automatic 36mm timepiece, which is inspired by the shape of classic navigational tools. A ribbon of Paraiba tourmalines and 70 brilliantcut diamonds embraces the three counters and draws the eye to the heart of the action while white mother-of-pearl decorates the background of the dial, creating the illusion of depth and volume. On the right is the retrograde days of the week counter and, on the left, the retrograde seconds counter, which traces the arc of the seconds track. Once it reaches the 30-second marker, the hand jumps back in a counter-clockwise motion and begins again.
