Luxury jeweller and watchmaker Van Cleef & Arpels has brought ‘The Poetry of Time’ exhibition to Hong Kong. From today on until June 7 at The Peninsula Hong Kong’s China Clipper lounge, high jewellery timepieces that boast complicated clockworks from the maison will be on display. 

Van Cleef & Arpels’ chief Nicolas Bos combines his business vision and artistic creativity to come up with amazing jewellery

The exhibition features more than 30 watches – including the latest novelties from this year’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie – as well as the maison’s classic collections. Van Cleef & Arpels is known for its romantic interpretation of natural motifs and mythical creatures. Ballerinas and fairies are also the maison’s signature designs. 

The Poetic Astronomy – inspired by dazzling stars and the universe – is a new addition to the maison’s portfolio of creations that combine the excellent know-how of high jewellery and timepieces. In addition, a magnificent fresh flower centrepiece has been set up to welcome visitors.
