Replica watches: Created in 1949, the Pierre Arpels watch perfectly reflects Van Cleef & Arpels’ interpretation of a strong and refined masculine style. This masterpiece of balance and understated elegance features a slim case with
two central lugs adorning the connection between the strap and the dial.

The new Heure d’ici & Heure d’ailleurs watch expresses the unique taste of Pierre Arpels by interpreting the great journey with subtle poetic brushstrokes. In order to meet the needs of the family’s distinguished customers, Mr. Pierre Arpels has visited all over the world and was inspired by exotic cultures, which he transformed into the long-standing creative tradition of Van Cleef & Arpels. One of the most world-famous creations occurred in 1966, when Van Cleef & Arpels was commissioned to create a royal jewellery collection for Queen Farah Pahlavi of Iran for the following year’s coronation.

selected suitable gems from the treasury of the Central Bank of Iran,
and built a complete jewelry workshop in the building where the treasury is located. Pierre also travels all over India, where he

The essence of design and craftsmanship
To this day, Van Cleef & Arpels continues to follow the yearning for exotic cultures, while adhering to the timeless aesthetic characteristics of the Pierre Arpels collection: minimalist lines, central lugs and thin replica watches shell, and the honeycomb pattern in the center of the dial; the latter is more reminiscent of the front of a dress shirt and the Van Cleef & Arpels brand stamp. The newly designed watch also shows many classic styles of the century-old family, such as the irregular design commonly used in jewelry creation by Van Cleef & Arpels, and the calligraphic name engraved on the watch to pay tribute to the poetic text. The equally elegant and charming crown can simultaneously wind
and adjust the minute hand and the two time zones of the movement; a single-set diamond at the top lights up the elegant arc of the case frame.
Dual time zone movement
For the first time, the Pierre Arpels collection welcomes a dual-time-zone complication, echoing the Poetry of Time™ by Van Cleef & Arpels. Its unique self-winding movement was jointly developed by Van Cleef & Arpels replica and Agenhor (Atelier Genevois d’Horlogerie), equipped with double jumping hours and retrograde minutes display. The hours are displayed in a window at the top of the dial,
while another window at the bottom shows the hours in the second time zone. Both are driven by a synchronizing member connecting the two hour dials and the retrograde minute hand,
thus achieving a fully synchronized beating. Best Rolex Replica Watches In The World
When the retrograde minute hand reaches the 60-minute mark,
it will fly back to the starting point,
and the hour displayed on the watch will jump accordingly. In order to keep the case slim and to reflect the classic features of the Pierre Arpels collection,
this automatic movement is equipped with a platinum micro-balance and takes up very little space. The balance wheel generates power by oscillating back and forth to drive the movement. The sapphire crystal sees through the delicate movement, the spiral-textured Van Cleef & Arpels classic bridge, and the blue lacquered balance wheel that echoes the honeycomb texture of the dial.
