Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Planétarium

VCA welcomes a member to its Poetic Complications® family, and it's a beautiful piece inspired by astronomy.

Based on the silhouette of the classic Planétarium watch, the new timepiece comes with glitter-blue alligator strap and diamonds set white gold case, bezel, crown and buckle.

Cartier Santos-Dumont

No amount of fancy nor extravagant watches could stop our love for this timeless work from Cartier, which first created in 1904 by Louis Cartier to his friend, the Brazilan aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont.

And this is how the world's first wristwatch was born.

During SIHH 2018 (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie), Cartier announced the revival and re-design of Santos. The 18K rose gold case of the new Santos is reshaped with more curves and chamfer, giving it a gentle and modern touch.

Each of the watches also comes with both leather strap and steel bracelet, a button is equipped on it to allow the straps to be swapped without using any tools.
