Van Cleef and Arpels Delights Women with Pont des Amoureux Watch

Sep 10, 2010
The creative minds within the Van Cleef & Arpels manufacture have designed a romantic-themed Pont des Amoureux watch. Developed with true women in mind, the design of this novelty exudes passion for living in love.

A true work of art, the dial of the new Van Cleef & Arpels watch captures the time in a very special manner.

The retrograde display reveals miniature figurines of a man and a woman, setting off to meet at the famous arch bridge over the Thiou River in Annecy, France.

The delicate figure of the woman, carrying an umbrella, substitutes the hour hand. The man, secretly holding a flower behind his back, serves to indicate the minutes.

Upon hitting 12 oclock, the lovers meet at the center for a kiss - a remarkable detail that further enhances the romantic mood of the model.

The Pont des Amoureux watch is offered in an 18-carat white gold case, which measures 38 mm in diameter.

Its thickness is equal to 11.8 mm. The case carries a graceful bezel, surrounded by a stream of scintillating diamonds.

The case also features mono-piece lugs and a cabochon-set crown. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 20 meters.

At the heart of the Van Cleef & Arpels watch is beating a modified Jaeger-LeCoultre hand-wound mechanical movement. It operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and provides a 39-hour power reserve.

A white crocodile leather strap completes the features of this marvelous ladys watch.
