Valentine’s Day Is a Time for Romance with Van Cleef & Arpels’ Féerie Rouge Watch

In 2008, the Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Féerie took home Robb Report’s Best of the Best award for Women’s Watches. Now Van Cleef & Arpels is back with the Féerie Rouge, a new version of the watch with a striking ruby-red enamel-on-guilloche dial, making it a perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Like the original watch, the Féerie Rouge displays time with retrograde hour and minute hands, meaning that rather than travel in a circle, the hands jump back to the beginning of their arc when they have reached the 12 and 60 marks, respectively.
