It took Van Cleef & Arpels sev­eral years to gather the 115 Mozam­bique ru­bies re­quired for its lat­est in­spired creation. Ru­bis Se­cret is nei­ther watch nor jew­ellery, but a per­fect blend of both, re­call­ing a her­itage of cre­at­ing ‘se­cret’ watches from the days when women had no need to know the time. The bracelet alone is in­dica­tive of the crafts­man­ship that de­fines the mai­son’s finest in­no­va­tions, its 151.25 carats’ worth of red gems set by hand in three rows over 1500 hours, with di­a­monds in­ter­laced for an even more strik­ing ef­fect. The di­a­mond­framed watch it­self is con­cealed in a side drawer, in­vis­i­ble un­til pressed, seam­lessly in­te­grated into the mas­ter­piece. POA
