The new Sweet Alhambra watches draw inspiration from a style born in the world of jewelry. The elegant casing incorporates a design of clover-inspired motifs lined with two rows of gold beads. Dials are created using a number of precious materials: two models present dials set with delicately iridescent white mother-of-pearl, while a third gleams with the dark luster of onyx. The final two models are embellished with a sparkling, fully diamond-paved dial, and a yellow gold dial adorned with a traditional guilloché aesthetic, respectively. Its engraved lines suggestive of sunbeams catch and cast back light for an intense reflection.
Van Cleef & Arpels is adding another novelty to Sweet Alhambra watches for more frequent wear: interchangeable bracelets. These are made exclusively from precious alligator leather, in colors chosen for their elegant sobriety. Each timepiece comes in a jewel box containing a second bracelet, to be selected from among classic colors or more vibrant hues. Easily interchangeable, bracelets can be removed with a gentle push of the finger: a playful way of celebrating luck at any time of day, to complement a particular outfit or simply to mark a new day or a new season.
