ABOUT RICHARD MILLE
Heralded at its initial release in 2001 as a break from the past and a new direction of horology, the wristwatches of Richard Mille were from their very inception extraordinary and uncompromising. From its establishment, the young brand would lay claim to a number of world premiere innovations that have seriously extended the entire field of horologic knowledge and invention. The brand’s guiding principles are the best in cutting-edge innovative technology and a strong artistic and architectural dimension, resulting in watches designed for ease of use and robustness, while remaining extremely sophisticated. Each piece is finished and assembled by hand, reflecting what is best in the tradition of ‘haute horlogerie’.
An incredible journey to the bottom of the sea led to H.Stern’s creation of the new collection, Iris. Captivated by the deep waters, this creative endeavor reveals the natural riches of the oceans as well as the poetic beauty of Iris, a Greek goddess of the sea.
From June 7th – July 1st H.Stern will feature an exhibit inspired by “the shells of the sea” or better referred to as the Iris Collection. The exhibit will showcase the brand’s exotic statement pieces such as the Mya Maris ring and the Tellina earrings.
This display will be located on the second level of The Shops at Crystals, between Todd English P.U.B. and Harry Winston.
Following the successful launch of the limited edition Harry Winston Hope Collection™ Bracelet, the House of Harry Winston is pleased to continue the gift of giving in a new, charming way.
