February 2016 will usher in the Chinese New Year of the monkey, and in honor of this playful, inquisitive creature, Harry Winston has unveiled the Premier Monkey Automatic 36 mm wristwatch. Using scrollwork that calls to mind Chinese paper cutting, the watch features a small gold monkey, its tail coiled around an emerald cut diamond at 12 o’clock. A pink mother-of-pearl dial inlaid with 24-karat gold flecks serves as a colorful background for the monkey and 57 brilliant cut diamonds provide a glittering border. The piece is finished with a black satin strap and a gold and diamond set buckle. The new watch is part of the Premier collection. Only eight watches of this limited edition set will be available.
