Van Cleef and Arpels Watches - Mythical Constellations

Jul 20, 2011
Van Cleef & Arpels offers four alluring ladies watches, which catch attention due to their skillful interpretations of mythical constellations. The collection is delivered in an exclusive cabinet produced of sycamore and mother-of-pearl inlay.


The new Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Pavo Decor watch is devoted to the Peacock constellation, found in the Southern hemisphere and dedicated to Hera. In Greek mythology, the peacock is an emblem of the queen of Olympia, which embodies the return of spring.

A symbol of pride, the bird mesmerizes the audience with its diamond plumage. It is depicted on the dial, done in hard stone inlay, sculpted gold set with diamonds as well as champleve and vallone enamel. The display ensures hours and minutes.

The new Van Cleef & Arpels watch is set in a 38mm white gold case, illuminated by the play of diamonds. Ticking inside is an 830 P mechanical movement.

The model is attached to an alligator leather strap. It is finalized by a white gold pin buckle, set with diamonds.

The dial of the new Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Cassiopeia Decor watch demonstrates an image of Cassiopeia, queen of Antiquity. She proclaimed her beauty to be without equal, thus insulting the Greek goddesses. As a result, they exiled Cassiopeia to the firmament. The name of the queen was given to a constellation in the Northern hemisphere.


The display strikes the eye with gorgeous opal stones - extremely fragile and difficult to deal with. The watch face is performed in hard stone inlay, sculpted gold set with diamonds as well as champleve and vallone enamel.

The model indicates hours and minutes, animated by an 830 P mechanical movement. It finds home in a 38mm white gold case, set with diamonds. The final touch is provided by an alligator leather strap. It is finished with a white gold pin buckle, studded with diamonds.

The new Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Cygnus Decor watch pays tribute to the Swan constellation. Zeus, the God of all gods, took on the appearance of a swan in order to seduce Leda.


The bird enchants the public with its diamond wings, which look extremely graceful against a star-filled sky. The dial is done in hard stone inlay, sculpted gold set with diamonds as well as champleve and vallone enamel.

The display, indicating hours and minutes, is controlled by an 830 P mechanical movement. It is hidden inside a 38mm white gold case, highlighted by the sparkle of diamonds.

The timepiece is worn on an alligator leather strap, finished with a diamond-set white gold pin buckle.

The new Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Pegasus Decor watch reveals an image of Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology. A symbol of agility, independence and elevation, this animal was a loyal messenger of Zeus. For his services, the Olympian god turned Pegasus into a constellation.


The body and wings of the horse are covered by the rarest stones and purest diamonds. The dial is done in hard stone inlay, sculpted gold set with diamonds as well as champleve and vallone enamel.

Powered by an 830 P mechanical movement, the model whispers the time through hours and minutes. The caliber is placed inside a 38mm white gold case, studded with diamonds.

The timepiece is teamed with an alligator leather strap. It is finalized by a white gold pin buckle paved with diamonds.

Each new Van Cleef & Arpels watch is offered in a limited edition of 22 pieces.
