1920s-Inspired Feather Watches From Harry Winston and Dior
Designer timepieces are going to the birds. With the recent resurgence of Jazz Age favorites such as art deco, fringe and now feathers—not to mention the highly anticipated remake of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan—it seems the Roaring ’20’s feathery accents are also making a comeback on watches, adding a bit of glamour to very traditional pieces. The new Dior VIII Grand Bal Plume watch honors the designer’s fanciful love of traditional costume balls, while the House of Harry Winston added their own take on the trend with the Ultimate Adornment Timepieces, a collection of watches (as well as pendants and brooches) accented with colorful and fringed peacock and duck feathers. Take the trend and fly with it!
VIII Grand Bal Plume watch by Dior, $36,300. Available by calling 866-675-2078. Diamond, gold and pheasant-feather satin-strap timepiece by Harry Winston, price upon request. Available at Harry Winston boutiques.
