The Cadenas watch, a perennially chic style, was designed by Van Cleef in 1935 to allow the wearer to see time discretely via the angled dial. An eighteen-carat gold bracelet with a mother of pearl dial signed Van Cleef and Arpels with VCA serial numbers. 79.08 grams, seven inches long, signed Van Cleef.
Founded in 1906 by Alfred Van Cleef and his brothers-in-law Charles and Julien Arpels on the Place Vendome in Paris, Van Cleef & Arpels is one of the world’s most exquisite jewelers. The immediate success of the House prompted the founders to expand to important seaside resorts in France as well as abroad. New York City became the first location in the United States for Van Cleef & Arpels in 1939 and the House has since opened boutiques in five more U.S. cities. Van Cleef & Arpels is renowned for its innovative designs and techniques such as the Mysterious Setting, in which the prongs are hidden underneath the gemstone. The designs include only the highest quality gemstones and pieces are often interchangeable – brooches can become pendants or hairclips, earrings detachable drops and bracelets can be linked together to create necklaces. Van Cleef & Arpels is currently part of the Richemont group.
