Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Jour des Fleurs

Derived from the Poetic Complications collection, the Lady Jour des Fleurs watch brings together the refinement of traditional crafts and technical sophistication to express the sources of Van Cleef & Arpels’ inspiration.

At the 2016 SIHH, Van Cleef & Arpels presented two new watches from the Poetic Complications collection. With these two models, the Maison blends high jewelry craftsmanship with the spirit of the Poetic Complications collection in a unique combination. Two new features are introduced on this occasion: the hour minute display with 12-hour rotating disk movement and a case measuring 33mm in diameter (compared to the usual 38mm).

A major source of inspiration for Van Cleef & Arpels, nature has contributed its rhythm and poetry to these two Poetic Complications creations. With the Lady Jour des Fleurs watch – evoking the cycle of the seasons – time flows by in harmony with the colors of the vegetation. A delicate foliage adorned with berries is brought to life by changing hues, from spring-like green to autumnal red.

Lady Jour des Fleurs

Set with diamonds on the bezel and edge, this receptacle of feminine proportions contains a hand-wound mechanical movement equipped with a 12-hour module, developed exclusively for Van Cleef & Arpels. The reduced dimensions of the case and thinness of the movement are a feat of technical expertise. Beneath a pierced over-dial, the rotating disk makes two complete turns each day to create an ever-changing scene. The dial is crowned by a sparkling over-dial with serti neige style setting, adorned with diamonds of different diameters so as to perfectly match the surface. The Jour des Fleurs model depicts shimmering foliage in dazzling shades of green, yellow, orange and purple. Spessartite and tsavorite garnets, yellow and pink sapphires and spinels come together to recreate seasonal hues. On the over-dial, berries in pink sapphires embellish the scene, while the back of the case is adorned with intricately engraved plant motifs.

Available on an alligator bracelet, these piece can also be accompanied by a jeweled bracele. The theme of the dial is continued in an elegant composition in diamonds and colored stones. Thanks to a specially designed system of articulation, the scene retains its shape and regularity while embracing the curve of the wrist.
