Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Jour Enchanté - Watches & Wonders 2024 #WatchesandWonders2024

15 April 2024

With the Lady Arpels Jour Enchanté watch, Van Cleef & Arpels brings to life a graceful silhouette picking flowers under the early morning sun. Light passes through generous leaves of white gold, plique-à-jour enamel and diamonds harboring a field of flowers aglow in dazzling colors.

Set with yellow sapphires, these blossoms are rendered in relief thanks to a new technique developed by Van Cleef & Arpels to offer the illusion of a boundless flowerbed: façonné enamel. Meticulously hand-sculpted, the feminine figure in white gold spreads her wings made from sparkling, pearly-white plique-à-jour enamel for a luminous transparency effect.

In the background, affixed to a sky exhibiting three nuances of turquoise, the sun gleams with the radiance of its precious stones: spessartite garnets, colored sapphires, or diamonds. Its rays are secured with a lifted setting, an innovative technique that creates the impression of stones suspended like dewdrops, with no visible attachment. The story continues on the back of the case, through an engraved decor illustrating the fairy taking flight. Two years of development and 180 hours of work were required to assemble this dial, a testimony to Van Cleef & Arpels’ ingenuity.
