— Lady Arpels Peau d’Âne Forêt enchantée is a unique watch with a marvellous gem-set dial.
A new creation enriching the Extaordinary Dials™ collection, the Lady Arpels Peau d’Âne Forêt enchantée watch is inspired by Charles Perrault’s famous “Donkey Skin” fairytale. Fleeing the castle of her childhood, the young princess finds refuge in a forest, a lush and verdant setting filled with deer, fawn and birds. Pervaded by a sense of poetry and graceful charm, this timepiece is also distinguished by the precious nature of its dial testifying to the jewelry expertise cultivated by Van Cleef & Arpels. This exquisite watch face called for more than 150 hours of workmanship combining for the very first time gem-setting, sculpture, engraving on gold as well as miniature painting. Diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and garnets bring the enchanting natural environment to life, while engraving on white and yellow gold gives shape to the various dial motifs, and miniature painting heightens the light and shade effects. This decor composed of six successive levels is strikingly lifelike and invites us to immerse ourselves in the entrancing world of Perrault’s tale.
