Van Cleef & Arpels has magnified the natural beauty of diamonds by creating the High Jewelry watch À Cheval. Perpetuating the jewelry-making savoir faire of the À Cheval set – created in 1981 – this timepiece epitomizes the elegance and refinement of feminine beauty.

By using an unusual setting method in which the gems overlap, the À Cheval watch offers a bracelet of great flexibility that adorns the wrist with a thin river of diamonds. A jewelry-making technique of great complexity, its subtly three-dimensional craftsmanship endows the diamonds with unparalleled sparkle.
The visual style of the À Cheval High Jewelry watch celebrates the white diamond: a symbol of purity and eternal love. Set in platinum, the gems are embellished by the precious metal, which reflects their radiance and sparkle. Enhanced by a bezel set with round diamonds, the watch is equipped with a quartz movement. The dial in white gold is illuminated by diamonds.
