Van Cleef & Arpels Ballerine Musicale- homage to the world of dance
By SENATUS Editor | 16 January 2023

Powerful symbols of joy and hope, fairies and ballerinas are an enduring tradition at Van Cleef & Arpels. Touched with ethereal grace, these emblematic feminine figures evoke the Maison’s enchanting world.

In homage to the world of dance, one of the Maison’s cherished inspirations, Van Cleef & Arpels has created the three Lady Arpels Ballerines Musicales watches. These timepieces echo the colors and musical themes of the three-part ballet Jewels, created in the 1960s by the choreographer George Balanchine following his encounter with Claude Arpels.

Each of the melodies has been specially adapted to be played by a watch using an innovative combination of a carillon and a music box. Their intricate architecture produces a particularly fine musical effect, providing a genuine sound experience.

Finally, different precious stones – emeralds, rubies and diamonds – and schools of dance – French, American and Russian – are revealed on animated dials thanks to the Maison’s craftsmanship.
