Drawing inspiration from nature and fairy tales is the philosophy that Van Cleef & Arpels followed. The beauty of nature and the wonderland of fairy tales are infused into the works. In the process of using, people can also experience the unique charm brought by these elements. At this year’s Asia Haute Horlogerie Show, Van Cleef & Arpels launched the LADY ARPELS CARDINAL CARMIN series of watches. This series of watches is based on the theme of flying birds, using unique feather feather inlay technology, and exquisite design, I believe you will love it.
Extraordinary dial series watches, full of designer inspiration on the dial of the watch, watch craft masters also play their expertise in this field. This watch has a diameter of 38 mm and the case is made of white gold. A round diamond is set around the case.
Kingfisher inlay with fine feathers
White gold dial, lapis lazuli and turquoise mosaic background, round diamonds, white gold substrate decorated with birds, lapis lazuli and turquoise alternate use, making the background look more layered. As if layers of water ripples, the use of arcs makes the background look fluid. Micro-painted feathers, white gold beak, finely painted, white gold bird eyes, convex round cut onyx. The use of the fine feather inlaying process allows the designer’s design to be presented to the fullest extent. The gradient effect of the two wings of the kingfisher from the inside to the outside makes the kingfisher look more real.
Crown with gear pattern, set with a diamond
The white gold crown is located on the right side of the watch and is decorated with gears. A round diamond is set on the top of the crown.
White gold gold lugs with diamonds
The lugs are also made of white gold, and diamonds are set in the central part of the lugs and on both sides of the lugs, in harmony with the watch as a whole.
Peacock blue alligator strap
The bright peacock blue alligator leather strap is clearly visible under the light. The blue alligator leather strap echoes the blue dial, as if the dial’s blue background extends.
Pin buckle also set with diamonds
White gold pin buckle with diamond inlaid on the buckle. Striving to integrate with the watch as a whole, and the attention to detail also makes this watch more eye-catching.
Sealed back cover design
The back cover of the watch is sealed. Despite this, the designers did not ignore this area of little attention. The Van Cleef & Arpels logo is printed on the back cover. Kingfishers on the rocks, the wavy lines in the distance are very dynamic. The back cover is also printed with the limited number of this watch. It is equipped with a manual winding mechanical movement (830p) and provides a 60-hour power reserve. Water-resistant to 30 meters.
Summary: Inspired by the kingfisher symbolizing happiness and steadfastness, the fine feather mosaic technique is used to bring the kingfisher to life. Full of rich and beautiful meanings, coupled with the use of precious materials, the combination of turquoise, lapis lazuli and round diamonds, has made this watch a lot of style. I believe that wearing it on the wrist will definitely become the focus of the audience.
