VAN CLEEF & AR­PELS – LADY AR­PELS UNE JOURNEE A MONACO

24-7 (Singapore) - - O For .... Only Watch -

Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the host city and in­ject­ing its famed ex­per­tise in “po­etic com­pli­ca­tions”, Van Cleef & Ar­pels’ Only Watch cre­ation is gor­geous and cere­bral in equal mea­sure. At first, one is awed by the cap­ti­vat­ing dial. Framed by bril­liant-cut di­a­monds, the multi-lay­ered dial fea­tures sil­hou­ettes of fe­male fig­ures in white gold – a mother and her daugh­ter – set against a turquoise back­ground that de­picts a panoramic view of Monaco. But it is through the pas­sage of time that the watch re­veals its charms. As the day ad­vances, the fe­male sil­hou­ettes slowly emerge and dis­ap­pear from view un­derneath a mother-of-pearl disc, a neat lit­tle an­i­ma­tion that ru­mi­nates on the fleet­ing mo­ments of our lives.
