Best Of The Best 2006: Top Secret

The Van Cleef & Arpels Secret collection embodies the notion that what a woman does with her time is sometimes best kept to herself: Each of the collection’s pieces features a gem-set rectangular case from which a watch slides out like a nightstand drawer. The subtly elegant combination of diamonds and mother-of-pearl and the ladylike dimension recall dress watches of the 1930s, and the drawer is playfully addictive. The Secret’s appeal is no mystery at all.
