At the 2018 Geneva Haute Horlogerie Show, Van Cleef & Arpels once again took inspiration from all things, and continued to write poems of the Poetry of Time®, interpreting the uniqueness of the golden years poetry. The family turned the memories of childhood on the grass and gazed at the vast sky, turning it into a Poetic Astronomy ™ poetic astrological watch, and in the cosmic sky, appreciate the wonderful dance performed by planets made of extraordinary gems. And when you look at the 12 constellations, you will be intoxicated by the bright starlight illuminated by the precise mechanical watchmaking process. Today we take a look at this poetic complication watch.
Watch real shot:
Poetic Astronomy presents 12 new Midnight Zodiac Lumineux watches, once again performing the bright starlight dancing in harmony with the rhythm of the universe and the nebula. Each watch is equipped with a movement module developed exclusively by the family, which can light up the infinite star sea at will.
This watch uses a blue dial, like a blue sky, dotted with a few star patterns, and a sheep pattern is drawn in the middle, which represents Aries. The constellation symbol is engraved in white gold, and is even more outstanding under the blue enamel. Each nebula is stringed with multiple exquisite enamel beads and carved and inlaid by hand.
Black strap with stainless steel case, stylish atmosphere. The folding buckle is easy to wear.
The bottom of the case is also engraved with a constellation pattern and is equipped with a delicate automatic mechanical movement. Van Cleef & Arpels’exclusive movement module contains a ceramic strip. When the wearer’s body moves the ceramic strip to vibrate, it can generate electrical energy through physical reactions, thereby powering four to six light-emitting diodes. When the push button is activated, the lighting device is lit, and the backlight reflects the transparent enamel beads on the dial, which can last for three seconds. This pinnacle of watchmaking craftsmanship complements the exquisite craftsmanship of Van Cleef & Arpels.
Since the launch of the first lucky gold coin charm with a constellation theme in the 1950s, the family has always been fond of the magnificent astrology, and the new watch is also based on the dazzling 12 constellation theme, and the dial is sprinkled with Aries and Taurus , Twin Gemini, Cancer, Lion, Virgin, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Aries, Aquarius and Pisces. The crystallization of the Midnight Zodiac Lumineux watch, which combines different craftsmanship, is inspired by the piezoelectric effect.
