Van Cleef & Arpels embark on a journey with fairies, interpreted in the form of the Lady Féerie watch...

There was a time that fairies sparked daydreams and fantasies. As magical as they are mischievous, the fantasy of fairies have been celebrated by Van Cleef & Arpels ever since its origins and today, the Maison is offering a new interpretation of the theme — evoking dreams and wonder in the form of the Lady Féerie watch.

The timepiece is the latest addition to the Féerie timepieces collection and as always, it continues to blend watchmaking expertise with traditional craftsmanship. Perfectly proportioned in a 33mm case, the fairy is set with a sapphire and diamond gown overlooking Van Cleef & Arpels' Poetry of Time.

The timepiece itself is a marriage between watchmaking and traditional skills, and is fitted with a self-winding mechanical movement, retrograde minute display and jumping hours.

Requiring great precision to fit the sophisticated movement into a 33m in diameter, the case is embellished with a rounded sapphire glass allowing the maximum of light to enter, providing a gentle finishing touch to the watch's silhouette.
