In 2007, Van Cleef & Arpels launched the Poetic Time series, which combines poetic and complexity, which made the watch fans astonishing. The Lady Arpels Pont Des Amoureux model released in 2010 won the GPHG Women’s Watch Award that year. In 2012, Van Cleef & Arpels continued its story five years ago, launching two poetic romantic watches, Arpels Poetic Wish and Midnight Poetic Wish.
This watch is a collection of high-quality gemstones (set with diamonds D, E and F, with very slight flaws), extraordinary craft series (engraved in gold, painted enamel, mother-of-pearl, gem-set) and Fine watchmaking company (constant force mechanism, a five minute repeater and three automatic devices). With the popularity of ‘Shinabashi Lovers’ last year, the main development goal of the high-end watch production base Agenhor under the leadership of Jean-Marc Weiderrecht is this watch.
As with all Van Cleef Arpels poetic complication watches, the two new Poetic Wish watches are certainly more than just an ornament. Their movements indicate the minutes and hours respectively in the form of poetic romantic animations, and they use a five-minute two-question mechanism, that is, the time is reported first, and then the minutes are reported in units of five minutes. The clearer and more pleasant sound, the design is ingenious.
These two poetic romantic watches use metal engraving, micro-painted enamel, mother-of-pearl engraving and diamond setting technology to create beautiful dials. After turning the crown at 2 o’clock to wind the two-question function, the girl under the tower in the Arpels Poetic Wish watch will slowly approach the center of the dial, and the mother-of-pearl clouds will gradually approach her. When the two meet, the watch will report a small clock sound, and then the paper kite above the Notre Dame will slowly fly, echoing the five-minute clock sound.
Similarly, in Midnight Poetic Wish, a young male on the left side of the watch dial stands on a balcony in the Bastion of Notre Dame Cathedral slowly moving towards the center of the watch, indicating the precise hours, and the mother-of-pearl cloud opposite him Will move towards him with the level. When the two met, the bell of the church called the bell, and a diamond shooting star on the dial appeared behind the clouds and flew to the sky to indicate the minutes with the bell’s music rhythm. In addition, every Poetic Wish watch is equipped with a precious watch box, which is inlaid with rare wood and mother-of-pearl. The creative ideas in the box come from the production of stringed instruments, which complement the moving music with poetic complexity.
Such a poetic and elegant watch is very suitable for the majority of lovers of watches as a holiday gift, quickly put him in his pocket. More details are at the Watch House.
