Jan 25, 2010
The famous watchmaker Van Cleef & Arpels is proud to announce its novel Midnight Extraordinary Japanese Lacquer watches, reserved specially for men. Encouraged by breathtaking Japanese sceneries, each of these remarkable timekeeping creations has been produced in a limited series of 8 pieces.

Born from the dexterous fingers of Hakose San, a genius artist who acted as a master dial maker for Van Cleef &Arpels, the new watches achieved the marriage of the austere purity of the Midnight case and matchless precision of the lacquer work.

The Midnight Extraordinary Japanese Lacquer watches borrowed their names from five traditional landscapes, including Sakura and Ryusui. These sceneries represent a source of ceaseless inspiration for the masters of lacquer craftsmanship.

Each timepiece from the Van Cleef & Arpels collection is offered with a 42 mm case, rendered in white gold. It frames an extremely attractive dial, done with Japanese lacquer. Ticking inside every watch is a self-winding 800P movement.

The Van Cleef & Arpels watches, reviewed by, are secured to the wearers wrist on an alligator leather strap, finished with a white gold buckle.
