At the intersection of Watchmaking and High Jewelry, Van Cleef & Arpels continues to explore its creative universe with jewels that tell the time.Whether graphic or figurative, Van Cleef & Arpels' watches display a wealth of savoir-faire and lend a sparkle to time – disclosing it in glimpses or even cloaking it in mystery. Secret watches – created by the Maison since the 1930s – marvel with their concealed treasures. They have all the appeal of jewelry, with dials that remain hidden before being discretely revealed. Sliding a treasured bow, opening a diamond chest or glancing at a mirror are so many ways of playing with time.
To mark the SIHH, the Maison is showcasing its High Jewelry savoir-faire with distinctive watches recently completed at its workshops. Influenced by the beauty of the sea, the Heure Marine piece combines the technical expertise of a secret watch with the finesse of a feminine jewel.
