Flowers are the stars of Van Cleef & Arpels’ newest High Jewelry watches. True to its vision of the Poetry of Time, it presents eight dazzling floral creations, including forget-me-nots and daisies.

This virtuoso Mysotis Watch expresses all the inventiveness and excellence of Van Cleef & Arpels’ savoir-faire to evoke the tender symbolism of the forget-me-not. When laid flat, the bracelet reveals a bouquet of wild flowers in gentle yellow, blue and pink shades. Wrapped around the wrist, it takes on a new aspect with the appearance of a bed of pink sapphires beneath the corollas. This creation beguiles the eye with its remarkable volume, split-level articulated structure and precious transformations.

The Pâquerette watch adopts the same structure as the Myosotis watch, repeating the exercise in an interplay of springtime colors. 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.
