Lady Arpels Féerie

    In 2005, Parisian jewelry house Van Cleef & Arpels presented its Midsummer Night’s Dream high-jewelry collection depicting impish fairies rendered in sparkling gems. A year later, the brand combined the fairy motif with a complicated retrograde movement and created the $96,000 Lady Arpels Féerie watch. Designers referenced a museum piece, the 1927 “Bonze” fob watch, for this retrograde watch, which was made in collaboration with Geneva specialty house and frequent Van Cleef & Arpels partner Agenhor.
