Flowers in bloom treasure the passing of time to reveal it beneath precious petals. Feel the freshness of Spring in the high jewellery garden cultivated by Van Cleef & Arpels: Le Jardin.
Le Jardin Van Cleef & Arpels: an enchanting garden where secret and transformable watches disclose the Poetry of Time.
Genuine jewels and enchanting timepieces, the High Jewellery watches depict the passage of the hours with a precious sparkle.
Nature – one of the Maison’s favourite themes – has instilled its rhythm, freshness and perpetual metamorphoses into eight floral creations. Whether unique or repetitive, they form a garden rich in delicate shades.
Le Jardin Van Cleef & Arpels collection features mainly secret watches. And it creates a sense of surprise and wonder that perpetuates the Maison’s much-loved tradition of mystery and wonder.
A collection composed of unique or repeatable creations, which allows the wearers to tell the time discretely, in keeping with rules of courtesy.
Le Jardin Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewellery watches – unique pieces.
The High Jewellery secret watches are unique pieces that testify to the superb level of craftsmanship of Van Cleef & Arpels’ goldsmith atelier.
A highly skilful and intricate work is adorned by gemstones in all their glory: white and yellow diamonds, spessartite garnets, all shades of sapphires in white and yellow gold.
Virtuoso creations that express the creativity and excellence of Van Cleef & Arpels’ savoir-faire to evoke Flora’s delicate touch. They adorn the wrist while telling the time in the most precious way.
Out of all the beautiful flowers adorning Le Jardin, we chose those with that special “visual scent” that captured our eyes and conquered our hearts.
Like the Dandelion Secret watch, with its delicate diamond sphere employing an en trembleuse technique that gives the illusion of seeds ready to take flight.
Or like the Chrysanthème Secret watch, with its generous and finely chiselled corolla unfurling in a spiral of diamonds and pink sapphires. The dial is revealed through a hidden mechanism, sparkling with spessartite garnets – a beautiful hint to autumn.
The Pâquerette watch is another extraordinarily blooming creation. Spring is in triumph here, as well as the Maison’s stone experts and setters. This jewel combines pear-shaped diamonds with round yellow sapphires to render the petals. By fastening the bracelet, tsavorite garnets appear to suggest the grass of a meadow.
Le Jardin Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewellery watches – repeatable timepieces.
Flowers have been one of the Maison’s recurrent source of inspiration. For this collection, the daisy, a creative theme since the 1920s, becomes the absolute protagonist on the wrist.
A daisy guards the time beneath a heart of yellow sapphires in the Marguerite Secrète watch – also wearable as a clip, in keeping with Van Cleef & Arpels’ tradition of transformable creations.
Another flower, the hollyhock, gives life to the Primerose Secrète watch, and adds different shades of pink sapphires, to evoke youth and femininity. The dial is revealed by pressing a petal in the corolla.
Le Jardin Van Cleef & Arpels is a renewed interpretation of that Realm of Dreams that evokes the Poetry of Time in its most pure form, through exquisite masterpieces of Haute Horlogerie.
