At 36mm wide this is definitely a woman’s watch. But if it was larger I could envision a few men who could pull this off. White and red is surely a “showy” combo – and you don’t see it that often. What is this “zalium?” It is an alloy that Harry Winston likes to use to made of a blend of zirconium and aluminum. In addition to being light (and used for aeronautical purposes) it is said to be hypo-allergenic and resistant to corrosion. Is this metal necessary in a jewelry watch? Not at all, but part of what comes with the high-end watch experience (a bunch of people looking for odd materials to use).
Zalium is mixed with diamonds for decoration on the case and dial. While the dial design is complex, the Swiss automatic movement only shows the time (with subsidiary seconds dial) and a moon phase indicator. The Ocean Lady Zalium comes on a white rubber strap for a sporty, iconic “Ocean” look.
