Van Cleef & Arpels : Midnight Poetic Wish

For five years, the Poetic Time collection from Van Cleef & Arpels has presented watches that demonstrate a mastery of horological complications together with unparalleled virtuosity in the artistic crafts.

The Midnight Poetic Wish, with a movement by Agenhor and decoration by Olivier Vaucher, carries on in this vein. Its three automata display time as a "poetic animation" while a striking mechanism sounds the elapsed hours and five minutes. Five patents have been filed for this five-minute repeater watch.
