Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Heures Florales

This timepiece houses a complex mechanism that — at the turn of every hour — opens and closes the flowers.

By Roberta Naas

A world’s first in watchmaking and métiers d’arts, this new Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels timepiece houses a complex mechanism that — at the turn of every hour — opens and closes the flowers. As each flower opens, a diamond center is revealed; time is told via the number of opened flowers. A tiny automaton on the wrist, the 38mm gold watch offers a lateral display of the minutes. The dial is made in three colors of gold with diamonds, mother-of-pearl and miniature paintings.

$246,000, available at Van Cleef & Arpels in New York, +1 212 896 9284, vancleefarpels.com
