Each season, Van Cleef & Arpels creates dreamlike timepieces which embody the bold creativity of the Maison. These timepieces never cease to amaze...
Once upon a time, in 2007, the Lady Arpels Féérie appeared. The diamond fairy then granted a wish to a baby girl in her cradle. Years later, we followed her as a young girl in Une Journée à Paris, where she discovered the City of Romance.
In 2010, the girl returned to Paris on the Pont des Amoureux watch, where she met a young man and fell in love on a bridge over the Seine.
This year, the Maison introduces two new Masterpieces...
The Midnight Poetic Wish and the Lady Arpels Poetic Wish symbolize the never-ending love story between the two young lovers in Paris. Each of these precious timepieces requires hundreds of hours of work to complete. They combine an incredible amount of expertise in watch-making with the know-how of decorating the dial.
Each watch features three integrated automatons with a five-minute repeater movement. While sculpting and engraving on gold, miniature painting, mother-of-pearl sculpting, and stone-setting accentuate the exquisite detail and refinement of the timepieces.
With this new chapter, the Maison not only pushes the limits of technical prowess, but also changes the representation of time.
