The Cadenas watch was born in the prosperity and splendor of the 1930s avant-garde. Since 1935, it has been a timeless and signature piece of Van Cleef & Arpels.
In the beginning of the 20th century, it was considered inelegant for a woman to look at the time publicly. Thereby, artistic director Renée Puissant‒daughter of Van Cleef & Arpels' founding couple‒came up with a subtle, elegant and modern solution: an angled dial only visible to its wearer. With one simple gesture, the Cadenas watch goes from a precious jewel to an inventive watch.
The Cadenas watch defines the perfect marriage between beauty and functionality. Its lock-like clasp seals the bejeweled watch in an unprecedented and exquisite aesthetic.
Bold and timeless, the Cadenas watch is a memento of dynamic design inspired by the industrial aesthetic of the time. The curves of the chain bracelet combine harmoniously with the straight lines of the case. To fluidity answers sharpness in a balanced aesthetic.
With the Cadenas watch, Van Cleef & Arpels has conquered time. Adored in the 1930s, the sumptuous watch has traveled through decades up to the 21st century, when it became a long-lasting model of the timepiece collections. Timeless, the Cadenas watch is always up-to-date.
