  • Catalogue Essay

    Throughout the Art Deco period, Van Cleef and Arpels produced some of the very best jewellery time pieces for their esteemed clients, ranging from the Duchess of Windsor to Marjorie Merriweather Post.

    The present watch, lavishly adorned with brilliant-cut and old-cut diamonds weighing approximately 7.80 carats in total, truly exemplifies Van Cleef and Arpels' mastery in gem-setting. The hinges on the bracelet are fashioned so that the watch is flexible and moving fluidly with the wearer's hand. This masterpiece is furthermore embellished with geometric configurations on either side of the watch - a hallmark of the Art Deco period. Van Cleef and Arpels furthermore commissioned Vacheron and Constantin and Verger Frères to create the movement and case, which is another sign of quality and craftsmanship.
