Harry Winston ?

What you guys think about this brand ?
Re sale value , or any opinions ?
I almost pull the trigger but really not sure about this brand.

Between these two , first one or or second one looks better ?


Thank you

Very exclusive, especially the OPUS range.

Some very cool pieces but lacking in any horological heritage for me.

I handled a $238K HW and it was very interesting, but totally outrageously out of my price range...most people that buy those just put them in a safe and never wear them.

I think they are expensive, that's pretty much it

I would spend my watch money elsewhere (not that I am at a position for that price segment)

But I guess if all friends are wearing AP and Hublot, and you need something different and expensive ...

I really like some of them but needs to be bought at the right price.

HW is a jeweler not a watchmaker.

Not true. HW has advanced watchmaking with some seriously cool complicated movements. My issue with HW is the lack of heritage which detracts nothing from the watchmaking credentials of the company.

Lack of heritage and short history of producing timepieces equals not a watchmaker in my book. I could hire a trained watchmaker, slap my name on the face but I still wouldn't be a watchmaker. I have the same issue with HW watches that I do with the Ralph Lauren watches. RL is a fashion company who decided to capitalize on the high end watch market. Do you consider RL a watchmaker? I didn't think so.

Right. I think you money could be better and more wisely spent somewhere else.

"We have written of the Opus line in the past, but for those not in the know Opus is essentially a distinct line of Harry Winston timepieces which have been created in a collaborative partnership between Harry Winston and many of modern Horology’s most talented independent watch makers."

Pretty much sums it up.
