The young Harry Winston (1886-1978) worked in his father’s small jewellery workshop in New York and quickly became a connoisseur of precious stones. His knowledge of the subject earned him a fortune and made him “King of the diamonds”. In the United States his name even became an expression, a symbol of luxury and riches! In 1932, he set up his own jewellery brand but it was not until 1989 that the brand transferred its creativity in jewellery to the field of watchmaking. It continued its rise in 2007 by opening its own manufacture in Geneva, the capital of fine watchmaking. Harry Winston is famous for its Midnight, Avenue and Opus collections.
