Van Cleef & Arpels Blends Savoir-Faire and Creativity in Lady Arpels Zodiac Lumineux

As part of its Poetic Astronomy watch collection, Van Cleef & Arpels explored the zodiac in the most feminine of ways. The French watchmaking house has always made us dream through a simple glance at its timepieces and this time around, the decision to enrich this collection with 12 feminine watches was a blessing to every woman watch enthusiast. And behind these 12 watches, lies the secret of savoir-faire and creativity – values always cherished by the house, whether in jewelry or watchmaking.

What makes these watches spellbinding is a phenomenon known as piezoelectricity. Object of study since the 18th century, the latter was exclusively developed for Van Cleef & Arpels and refers to the capacity of certain materials to accumulate an electric charge when subjected to mechanical constraints. Are you wondering how this phenomenon works in these watches? We will tell you all about it! Under the effect of the timepiece’s movement, the piezoceramic blade’s vibration allows the mechanical generation of electrical energy, which is then used to supply from four to six LEDs for about three seconds at the press of a button.

This video not only shows you the movement of the watches, but also the one-of-a-kind aesthetic of every Lady Arpels Zodiac Lumineux dial. The symbolic zodiac signs are adorned with white or yellow gold, precious stones and enamel – making them true bejeweled works of art.

After watching the mesmerizing video, head to the Photo Gallery to check out the stunning collection.

Santos de Cartier Campaign Stars Jake Gyllenhaal

Cartier has finally revealed its new Santos de Cartier campaign and it is as fabulous as one would expect. The 60-second film directed by Seb Edwards and starring actor Jake Gyllenhaal, is a tribute to the aviator Santos-Dumont and celebrates the latter’s thrill-seeking spirit.

Indeed, the pioneering aviator was a friend of Louis Cartier, whose life was devoted to the magic of flying and the thrill of adventure. And so, his story is counted through a 60-second film that boasts Seb Edwards’ unabashed talent.

“I wanted to create a Fellini-style fantasy world to tell the thrilling story through the eyes of Cartier, in the most immediate way possible. I tried to capture the spirit of Alberto Santos-Dumont and his obsession with flight, speed and danger. I like to imagine what his dreams might have looked like... and come up with some wild imagery, a kind of abstract fantasy,” stated Seb Edwards. 

The award-winning British photographer instills the film with his powerful signature, alongside an artistic collaboration with American actor and producer Jake Gyllenhaal.
