Now, exiting from the jewelry retail business, Aber has sold the retail division of the Harry Winston brand to Swatch, which had earlier bought major watch brands. The rest of Harry Winston company, will be renamed to Dominion Diamond Company will now focus on the diamond mining operations in Diavik mine & Canadian diamond mines.
