This year Van Cleef & Arpels flower bloomed a new as a guardian of time, a watch preserving the hours beneath a heart of yellow sapphires. When raised, the latter reveals a diamond dial that echoes the sparkle of the petals. Their finely arced silhouettes combine a precious touch with the natural appearance of a real flower, burgeoning in the sunlight.
In keeping with the Maison’s tradition of transformable creations, the watch becomes a clip by assuming the central place in foliage of yellow gold, carved using ancestral goldsmith’s techniques. With their polished openwork, the leaves seem to quiver in the breeze, in interplay of brilliance and warm reflections.
