Inspired by the richness of nature, the Premier Precious Marquetry 36mm features an intricate dial that continuously enchants the eye. As if viewing nature through a kaleidoscope, the hypnotic design reveals a seemingly endless array of flora and fauna – from the brightly colored wings of butterflies and birds, to the petals of exotic blooms.
The complex stage-setting of the dial took expert artisans more than one hundred hours of work to achieve. Like nature itself, the white gold dial is comprised of several diverse elements, including mother-of-pearl, enamel, cabochon sapphires, and exquisite diamonds. Each material is deliberately set at different levels to create an architectural composition that plays on volumes and relief, exemplified in the varied treatment of the mother-of-pearl. The beaded and freshwater mother-of-pearl varieties are fashioned in three-dimension, while the white mother-of-pearl is engraved, intricately hand-painted or shaped like a milky-white cabochon stone. Three ‘paillonné’ (spangled) enamel areas are dusted with gold flecks, and are hand-set with diamonds and cabochon sapphires creating an intense fusion of colors. True to Winston heritage, this incredible masterpiece is set with a stunning array of spectacular gems, including 11 cabochon sapphires and 54 brilliant-cut diamonds displayed on the dial, housed within an elegant round case, hand-set with 63 brilliant-cut diamonds.
