Watches with designs coming from the art deco era are a mixed bag. Some with more modern looking elements that tended be either more minimalist or futuristic at the time are handsome watches still today. The perpetuation of that aesthetic is usually successful.

Then is also the more decorated jewelry style items of the era that are often an extension of the belle epoque design era. Translated today, these designs are interesting, but certainly not for the mainstream. Harry Winston’s new Avenue Classic watch for women is such a piece.

Using an art deco era jewelry look as its foundation, Harry Winston imbues an American flavor as well into this “old time New York” celebration watch. Coming in a white gold case (36mm tall by 21mm wide), it is set with 4.7 carats of lovely diamonds. Another 124 diamonds are used on the dial in combo with either black or white mother-of-pearl.

The Avenue Classic comes with a black or white satin strap, as well as an optional blue alligator strap. It has a Swiss quartz movement inside with a small subsidiary seconds hand. The piece is interesting, but certainly an acquired taste.

Elite.
