Lady Arpels Pont des Amoureux

Van Cleef & Arpels 2020

ref. VCARO8TY00
Women's

Love is in the air at Van Cleef & Arpels and has been ever since the brand was created in 1906. Introduced in 2010, the Lady Arpels Pont des Amoureux watch plays out that most romantic of scenes when lovers kiss. Now that kiss can be repeated a thousand times over thanks to this new interpretation. The principle is unchanged: boy and girl meet in the middle of this lovers bridge; she counts the hours as she advances towards their rendezvous while he crosses his half in 60 minutes. At midday and midnight their lips lock in a tender embrace. Van Cleef & Arpels has added an on-demand function to this poetic scene which, with a simple press of a pusher, allows our two lovers to be united at any time of day or night. Their romantic encounter is set against a backdrop of grisaille enamel, a decor that takes some forty hours to complete, and delicately sculpted gold. This charming scene takes place inside a 38mm white gold case that sparkles with the fire of diamonds.
