Harry Winston is preparing to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Pig with a commemorative recreation of a rose gold Premier Automatic.

As part of the brand’s Premier Collection, the 36mm timepiece has a bright red background to represent China’s national flag.

Elsewhere on the dial, a pig is crafted in 18-karat rose gold while fine silvers of mother of pearl in red and pink combine to create magnolia flowers.

Designers have also incorporated diamonds into the piece, with one being placed to mark the pig’s eye and to crown the dial at 12 o’clock.

Fitted with a flat silicon balance spring for precision, the movement has a 72-hour power reserve and can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back, which is engraved with the corresponding limited-edition number-barring number four, which is considered to be an unlucky number in Chinese culture.

Limited to just seven limited edition pieces, the watch is part of the 1989 launched Premier collection which was the first timepiece collection introduced by the House of Harry Winston and was designed to replicate iconic symbols of the New York jewelry brand.
