Van Cleef & Arpels
Lady Jour des Fleurs And Lady Nuit des Papillons
The joys of spring appear to have overtaken Van Cleef & Arpels with the launch of two new Poetic Complications creations. The Lady Jour des Fleurs watch has delicate foliage adorned with berries, executed with gems such as spessartite and tsavorite garnets, yellow and pink sapphires and spinels. The Lady Nuits des Papillons, on the other hand, showcases butterflies flitting in the moonlight, where four rose-cut diamonds outline the wings of a butterfly. There are two new features: the hour-minute display with 12-hour rotating disk movement, and a case measuring 33mm in diameter (compared to the usual 38mm). Set with diamonds on the bezel and edge, this receptacle of feminine proportions contains a hand-wound mechanical movement equipped with a 12-hour module.
