Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons by Van Cleef & Arpels #SIHH2016
By SENATUS Watches & Jewelry | 18 January 2016

This latest addition to the Van Cleef & Arpels' "Poetic Creations" collection is a veritable ode to nature, with a watch face adorned with moving butterflies, a showcase of the workmanship of the label's engravers, setters, enamelist, gem-cutters and miniature painting specialists. Behind the delicate scene depicted on the watch face, a unique mechanism has been developed exclusively for this watch, based on a retrograde hour hand, variable-speed minutes and on-demand movement.

Three colorful butterflies loop around the dial in a winged ballet. Minutes are tracked by the butterflies' loops between the clouds, while the hour is shown by a swallow pointing to the corresponding number with the tip of a wing.

The scene on this exceptional model can also move on demand. At the simple press of a button, admirers can watch the butterflies fly around the clouds in a 13-second sequence.

The "Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons" watch has a 38mm-diameter white-gold case with a diamond-encrusted bezel and crown. The dial is finished in mother of pearl, engraved white gold, and features intricate miniature painting. The watch is paired with an alligator strap with a white gold pin buckle set with diamonds. It has a 42-hour power reserve.
