Van Cleef & Arpels Dandelion secret watch
At this year’s SIHH, Van Cleef & Arpels unveiled eight high jewelry watches inspired by nature. Flowers, to be exact. From peony to myosotis, chrysanthemums to dandelions (pictured), each high jewelry watch strongly recalls the structure of each flower, enclosed with diamonds, sapphires and gold. Undoubtedly one of the highlights is the Dandelion secret watch, which is adorned with white and yellow diamonds on the strap to recreate the outline of leaves. On one side, there’s the petal with the yellow gold and yellow diamonds. On the other, the pusteblume, which is recreated as a diamond sphere, where the trembleuse technique is applied to depict the ball of seeds as it is about to take flight or blown in the wind. As a result, it will quiver delicately as you move your wrist.
