My only idea is that with a 36mm dial, it may be a little large for the conventional cocktail watch, however I am interested to learn how it lies on the wrist. It could go either way on a case by case basis, with the larger dial layout featuring more as a beautiful bracelet, or perhaps only a gorgeous casual costume-occasion watch.Bottom lineup: for all the hopeless romantics that have secretly imagined committing their wife/girlfriend/passionate-unrequited-love-interest a flock of trained butterflies delivering a diamond (you know who you are), this is a wonderful alternative. Additionally, though, in the event that you simply wanted a gift having a little whimsy and charm that this is actually also an intriguing choice with a sentiment just romantic enough that cannot be missed on the receiving end. And finally, for women who are looking for a superbly designed dialog piece with a story, and a real automatic movement to add to their collection, the newest Harry Winston Premier Precious Butterfly collection is well worth considering.Having seen several unique dials, marquetry methods and craftsmanship in women’s bits, what I personally love is the idea that, for a cost, you can basically get a little “pixie dust” on your watch.The Harry Winston Premier Precious Butterfly collection watches come in four variations: The “Chrysiridia Madagascariensis” – 18K white gold butterfly marquetry theme in Emerald on black silk technician strap, (PRNAHM36WW004) price: $42,500. “Agrias Claudina Lugens” – 18K rose gold on champagne-toned beige tech satin strap (PRNAHM36RR007) cost: $41,500.
