Dandelion Secret watch, white, yellow and pink gold, white and yellow diamonds, quartz movement
Reflecting nature’s perpetual renewal, the Dandelion Secret watch offers dazzling metamorphoses to the person who appreciates its beauty. With twin motifs embellishing each end of a torque bracelet, this unique watch pays homage to this wild flower’s dual nature. White and yellow diamonds alternate along the bracelet to recreate the outline of the leaves, before adorning the feathery seeds and petals respectively.
While the corolla’s heart pivots to reveal a sun-colored dial, an ethereal diamond sphere employs an en trembleuse mechanism to depict the ball of seeds, which quiver delicately as if about to take flight, according to the movement of the wrist.

Deep in this precious garden, majestic flowers keep watch over time, revealing their secret with a brush of the fingers. The peony, in its dazzling diamond robe, conceals a hidden dial in its heart of spessartite garnets. The Maison's jewelry-making savoir-faire is here revealed in the movement, delicacy and angle of each petal, which endow the corolla with an exceptionally realistic three-dimensional effect.
Lush green leaves furl around a delicate bracelet in pink gold and pink sapphires. When closed, the clasp forms an elegant bow against the wrist, providing this unique piece with the grace of a ribbon.

Light and spring-like, daisies have blossomed in the Maison's creations since the 1920s. This year, the flower blooms anew as a guardian of time, preserving the hours beneath a heart of yellow sapphires. When raised, the latter reveals a diamond dial that echoes the sparkle of the petals. Their finely arced silhouettes combine a precious touch with the natural appearance of a real flower, burgeoning in the sunlight.
In keeping with the Maison's tradition of transformable creations, the watch becomes a clip by assuming the central place in foliage of yellow gold, carved using ancestral goldsmith's techniques. With their polished openwork, the leaves seem to quiver in the breeze, in an interplay of brilliance and warm reflections.

This virtuoso piece expresses all the inventiveness and excellence of Van Cleef & Arpels’ savoir-faire to evoke the tender symbolism of the daisy. It illustrates the talent of the Maison’s stone experts and setters by blending sparkling pear-shaped diamonds with round yellow sapphires to depict the petals. The expanse of daisies seems to come to life when the bracelet is fastened: tsavorite garnets then appear to suggest the grass of a meadow.
Entirely paved with white diamonds, a dial sparkles at the heart of the piece, counting the hours in time with the rhythm of nature.
Genuine jewels and enchanting timepieces, the High Jewelry watches depict the passage of the hours with a precious sparkle. This year, the Maison has given pride of place to flora, contributing all the excellence of its savoir-faire to its vision of the Poetry of Time. Nature ‒ one of the Maison's favorite 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.
