Van Cleef & Arpels – SIHH 2018
On the occasion of the SIHH 2018, Van Cleef & Arpels has drawn on new sources of wonder between Heaven and Earth to reflect its distinctive Poetry of Time®. Just as in childhood memories, everyone can lie down in the long grass and gaze up at the vast vault of the sky. Poetic Astronomy™ offers an invitation to plunge into the cosmos and observe the dance of the planets, presented in a precious setting.
The gaze is drawn to the twelve constellations of the Zodiac, which light up thanks to a virtuoso mechanism. The voyage continues from one-time zone to another, from the starry night to the break of day, revealing the spectacle of nature bathed in sunlight. Within “Le Jardin Van Cleef & Arpels”, flowers shelter the time beneath precious petals, their corollas blooming against beds of pink sapphires.
Secret and transformable watches combine the rhythm of the seasons with that of High Jewelry. Four-leaf clovers assume their place in the pastoral tableau, measuring the hours in a succession of Alhambra® motifs. Time slips peacefully by from one creation to the next, opening the gates of a world of dreams and harmony.
