If it’s a classic dress watch with an elegant retro character you are looking for, this Pierre Arpels watch by Van Cleef & Arpels is the perfect match. Designed by Pierre Arpels in 1949, this dress watch comes in a 42mm white gold case with a slinky white gold Milanese bracelet. The distinctive features of the Pierre Arpels watch are the cylindrical bars that unite the supple gold strap to the case framing the dial and the honeycomb decoration in the centre of the white lacquered dial, reminiscent of the piqué motif of a black-tie shirtfront. The mechanical manual-winding movement is ultra-thin giving the watch a classy, lean profile. And for a final touch of sophistication, the white gold crown is set with a round diamond. Also available in rose gold.
