Catalogue Note

In the 1920s, timepieces for women transformed from a functional object to an essential fashion accessory. Van Cleef & Arpels had taken advantage of this opportunity by stepping into the world of horology to produce the perfect jewelry timepieces which they had envisioned. Similar to the present lot, their Art Deco timepeices from the 1920s would incorporate the use of diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and onyx. The present lot is a contemporary representation of their classic models and designs.
