Last week, during a special event at the Planetarium Dome of the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, Van Cleef & Arpels paid tribute to Poetic Astronomy™, new timepiece creations that combine the poetry of the spheres with the measurement of time.
The Midnight Planétarium Poetic Complication™ timepiece unites Maison’s mechanics of time with the heavenly spheres, while starry compositions of the constellations are unveiled in the Extraordinary Dials™ collection. Chosen according to the inspiration of each piece, traditional craft skills form dazzling combinations, bearing witness to the innovation, creativity and excellence of Van Cleef & Arpels.
In this celebration of the Poetry of Time™, the Maison also showcased some of its watchmaking icons. These included the Charms timepiece that takes on a mantle of pink gold with exquisite simplicity, while the Pierre Arpels collection welcomes two creations that reflect the lifestyle of the multi-talented aesthete whose name it bears.
This special event revealed creations that once again tapped into Van Cleef & Arpels’ ongoing themes of luck and the importance of the passage of time through elegant creations.
