    This bracelet watch by Van Cleef & Arpels features a central diamond on the concealed cover, weighing approximately 0.75 carats. The central diamond is set next to brilliant and baguette diamonds, which form a flower petal motif. The rope bracelet, composed on brilliant and baguette diamonds weighing approximately 12 carats in total, winds and turns beautifully like a vine on the wrist. Such excellent craftsmanship can only be seen by jewelers such as Van Cleef & Arpels - the bracelet has been manufactured to the highest quality. The movement is furthermore manufactured by LeCoultre Co, which is absolutely correct for the period. This watch is manufactured to the highest caliber and the watch is in extremely well preserved and original condition. A similar watch was given as a gift by Mohammed Rez Pahlavi to his fiancée, Princess Soraya, the future Queen of Iran.
