This year, the Maison recalled the history of 'Jewels that tell time' and poured out new jewelry watches in various forms. In addition, following last year, the amazing Extraordinary Object novelty with the automaton function was added to stop the visitors visiting Watches & Wonders and evoke admiration.replica watches uk Let's take a look at the new major timepieces of Van Cleef & Arpels, which offer beauty every year with the elegance of a queen.
A rose gold version of the Lady Fairy Watch 33mm version that debuted in 2021 was born. The previous version of the white gold case with a blue dial received more than expected response, so this year, a rose gold case with a delicate color gradation dial reminiscent of a sunset creates a different atmosphere.
Van Cleef & Arpels has been creating feminine figure jewelry (clips) inspired by ballerinas and fairies since the early 1940s. With delicate details that make each wing flutter, a unique lyrical composition centered on a figure, and elaborate gem setting, the fairy clip soon established itself as an iconic jewelry symbolizing the Maison. The fairy theme does not stay in the realm of jewelry, but expands to timepieces in the 21st century and is reinterpreted more abundantly. For example, the Lady Arpels Fairy Watch was the first timepiece in the Poetic Complications collection, which was launched in 2006 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of its founding under the banner of “Poetry of Time.” You need to remember the facts. It can be seen that the fairy is a symbol that occupies a very important place in the history of the Maison.
Since then, the newly introduced Lady Fairy Watch in 2021 has attracted attention with its 33mm size, which is smaller than the existing 38mm. The follow-up, this year's new product, is also the same size. And, like the previous white gold version, the rose gold case's bezel and profile are densely set with 364 round-cut diamonds (approximately 4.73 carats), giving it the appearance of a high jewelery watch.
A figure of a fairy sculpted in rose gold on top of a cloud made of white mother-of-pearl reveals its presence. The wings of the fairy were depicted with a three-dimensional effect while being transparent like stained glass using a unique enameling technique derived from cloisonné called plique-a-jour.replica cartier The background of the dial, adorned with a radial guilloché pattern, is created by alternating translucent and opaque pink enamels to create a distinctive gradation effect. It is said that the Maison's dedicated enamel craftsmen had to repeat the process more than 10 times to create a natural feeling of color ranging from pearl white to yellowish champagne, deep plum tinged with purple, and intense fuchsia color close to red.
