Amazing craftsmanship with this iconic creation of Van Cleef & Arpels. @vancleefarpels
The Lady Arpels Planétarium watch is a feminine vision of the cosmos.
This watch illustrates the Sun and the closest
planets: Mercury, Venus and finally Earth, along with its natural satellite, the
Moon. Each heavenly body moves at its actual speed, orbiting the dial in 88
days for Mercury, 224 days for Venus and 365 days for Earth.
The Moon itself rotates around the Earth in 29.5
days, performing a visible celestial ballet on the dial, day after day.
The choice of planets, imbued with feminine symbolism in the case of Venus and the Moon, goes hand in hand with craftsmanship to adapt the dimensions of the timepiece to a woman’s dainty wrist.
The 38mm case is set with diamonds in the bezel and sides of the case. The case houses a movement redesigned for this smaller size, with an exclusive module developed in
