Van Cleef and Arpels Unveils Collection of Hummingbirds Watches

Apr 29, 2010
Inspired by amazing hummingbirds, the illustrious watchmaking house Van Cleef & Arpels has manufactured an exclusive collection of five spectacular timepieces - the Lady Arpels Extraordinary Hummingbirds. The range includes Berylline, Ruby-Throated, Violet-Crowned, Blue-Throated and Calliope watches.

The flamboyant dials of the Van Cleef & Arpels watches depict the nomadic birds with remarkably bright plumage. In search for nectar, hummingbirds collect pollen with their long curved beaks from flowers.

In order to impeccably convey the movement of the bird and the flower it is attracted to, the extraordinary dial of every model has been created utilizing three different techniques: setting of precious stones, champleve enamelling, as well as three-dimensional enameling.

Every horological masterpiece from the collection is available with a 38 mm case sculptured in white gold. It is adorned with scintillating round diamonds. On its side, the watch features a Van Cleef & Arpels engraving.

Ticking inside every timekeeper is an 830P mechanical movement.

Each Van Cleef & Arpels Hummingbirds watch is completed by an alligator leather strap. It terminates in a white gold buckle paved with sparkling diamonds.

The issue of every model has been limited to just 8 pieces.
