Give A Luxury Watch For Woman
If a fine mechanical watch is both a call and an invitation to savor time, the poetic complications of Van Cleef & Arpels must be counted as the true heralds of time. Traditionalists may thumb their noses at the brand’s Une journée à Paris (A Day in Paris) watch – where the multi-part dial follows the passage of time and literally tells the story of a stroll through the City of Lights – but these stuffy killjoys have long ago surrendered their joi de vivre.
Certainly, watching day turn to night via the same complication in the Lady Arpels Jour et Nuit piece last year was not especially technically significant but the idea is simply priceless. Yes, there is gold, there are diamonds, there is aventurine and mother-of-pearl but these are not the stars of the show. Anyone can assemble these commodities, given the right resources. Only Van Cleef & Arpels has the creativity to transform these materials into a precious watch.
