Harry Winston presents The Avenue Classic Sweet Valentine
Relive the romance of Valentine’s Day every minute of the day with this
heartfelt tribute to love. Beating with three-dimensional hearts in passionate
red mother-of-pearl, the graceful white gold case of this Avenue Classic
timepiece is adorned with diamonds and a touch of luscious red rubies.
Love is in the Air
Harry Winston delivers a bold and unequivocal message of love with the Avenue
Classic Sweet Valentine timepiece.
Once again, mother-of-pearl plays a leading role in the composition, marrying Harry
Winston’s ongoing love affair with this precious natural element with the
exploration of new creative avenues.
Ranging in size, the red mother-of-pearl hearts get progressively larger as they float
towards the top of the dial. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, the dynamic three-
dimensional hearts seamlessly push up from the background, and unlike flat
mother-of-pearl inlays, the hearts get plumper as they get bigger, allowing their
raised contours to be visible in profile.
A classy Art Deco case
New York’s Fifth Avenue has long played a pivotal role in Harry Winston’s story.
Renowned as the world’s most prestigious shopping destination and admired for its
soaring skyscrapers, Fifth Avenue is also home to Harry Winston’s Flagship Salon.
When Harry Winston founded his jewelry empire in 1932, the Art Deco movement
was in full swing. Inspired by the streamlined styling of this period, the Avenue
Classic boasts a stylish rectangular 18-karat white gold case that is gently cambered
to ensure a perfect fit on the wrist.
The classic arches, positioned at either end of the case, are diminutive recreations
of the famous arched doorway of Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Salon, and an iconic
feature of the Avenue Collection. A total of 48 radiant white brilliant-cut diamonds
sparkle on the bezel, lugs and even the sides of the case paying homage to the
diamond expertise of the House.

One of the extraordinary features of this timepiece is the incorporation of a
mesmerizing heart-shaped ruby in the top arch and a truncated ruby in the crown,
in place of the traditional diamond.
Even the emerald-shape white gold logo at 12 o’clock succumbs to the romantic
spirit of the timepiece and features a bright red lacquered background.
Wear your heart on your sleeve
The Avenue Classic Sweet Valentine is fitted with a high-end Swiss quartz
movement, ideal for everyday wear and the white gold case back is engraved with
its limited-edition number. Matching the dynamic red hearts on the dial, the
seamless red alligator strap comes with an 18-karat white gold ardillon buckle set
with six brilliant-cut diamonds.
Limited to just 14 pieces, the Avenue Classic Sweet Valentine is presented in a
beautiful white box decorated with precious red hearts recalling the dial of this
