Van Cleef & Arpels - Midnight Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs

Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs

A masculine take on travel, with dual time zones and jumping hour display.

The Midnight Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs watch is equipped with the Maison’s own dual time zone movement and offers an understated and poetic interpretation of time, suspended between two horizons.
With its new 42mm Midnight case, the Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs watch revisits Van Cleef & Arpels’ vision of masculine elegance. Its slender bezel and horns provide the frame for a generously proportioned dial. In a unique design, the case and hour markers – in satin-finished and polished pink gold – harmonize with the black of the dial, embellished with a stamped sun motif. The pure lines complement an asymmetric decor, in which the cursive letters of the watch’s name pay tribute to the poetry of words.

In an extra touch of refinement, a single crown is used both to wind the movement and to set the dual time zones and minutes.
Developed in partnership with Agenhor (Atelier Genevois d’Horlogerie), the exclusive selfwinding movement stands out for its jumping hour and retrograde minutes display, and offers a 48-hour power reserve. The Heure d’Ici – the reference hour displayed in the window at the top of the dial – and the Heure d’Ailleurs, corresponding to the second time zone indicated in the lower window, jump simultaneously thanks to a single sector that synchronizes both hour disks with the minutes’ retrograde hand. When the latter reaches 60 minutes on the graduated scale, it returns to its starting position in perfect synchronization with the hour display. A new cycle can then begin, marking a new journey.

The watch is fitted with a black alligator strap, with folding buckle in pink gold.
