Countdown to a Cure Timepiece: Harry Winston supports amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research

American jeweler and watchmaker Harry Winston launched the "Countdown to a Cure," a timepiece honoring the brand's partnership with amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.

The "Countdown to a Cure" is a limited edition of 20 women's and 20 men's watch models. They will be sold exclusively at Harry Winston stores, with 20 percent of the retail sales price from each timepiece being donated to amfAR.

Each model is produced in white gold and was designed to showcase the campaign colors that symbolize the fade of the disease from crisis to cure. The "Countdown to a Cure Timepiece" is part of Harry Winston's Midnight Collection.

"Through Harry Winston's support, amfAR has been able to make significant research investments into cutting-edge research studies that address the remaining roadblocks to a cure," underlines Nayla Hayek, CEO at Harry Winston.

"It is our hope that through our continued partnership, amfAR will be able to advance its efforts to end the global HIV/AIDS epidemic, giving millions of individuals around the world a more brilliant and healthy future."

The men's version features a 42mm white gold case with a navy blue dial that is accented with a multicolor gradient. The women's model displays 12 brilliant-cut diamonds, four pink sapphires, four blue sapphires, four yellow sapphires, four rubies, and three spessartite garnets.
