Today's offering showcases this beautiful Certified Pre-Owned Van Cleef & Arpels "La Collection" ladies watch by famous watch designer Gerald Genta. The "La Collection" line was renamed the Pierre Arpels line when it was relaunched.
A blend of sophistication and forward looking design at the time, it has a high fashion neo-classic design and is notable for its case case held by two central attachments.
It possess exquisite style. Its opulent case is 18K gold. Its thick bark texturing adds depth and elegance. Completing its distictive style is its cabochon sapphire topped crown.
For those unfamiliar, the late Gerald Genta is generally recognized as the most famous and greatest luxury watch designer of the last century. Beginning in 1970, he created some of the most high-end iconic watch designs including Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, the Patek Philippe Nautilus, certain versions of the Omega Constellation, the Bvlgari Bvlgari, the Piaget Polo, and the reinvention of the IWC Ingenieur. He also launched the watch brand that bears his name.
With a resume that includes so many luxurious labels, it is no surprise that Gerald Genta incorporated the sophistication of an elite brand, while deftly designing ultra-sophisticated and daring designs.
This is an exclusive watch likely made in a small run - you'll be the only person you'll ever know who owns one of these. Our extensive research couldn't turn up a single other identical example (though we are not suggesting it is a unique piece).
Powering it is a caliber 78x mechanical movement signed Gerald Genta. Photos of the inside available upon request. The caliber 78x is the same movement that also powered most of the vintage Cartier Tanks and many other Cartier watches from the era.
It has 100% of its original parts and presents and presents in gorgeous condition - a 9.7 out of 10. The only replacement part is the new aftermarket leather strap and buckle.
The case presents as mint. The dial has been meticulously refinished - the gilt printing could pass as Van Cleef & Arpels factory done, and the crystal is like new.
A Master Watchmaker has freshly overhauled the movement. It is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap done in the style of the original making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Current price for the newest version: $14,300.00 plus tax.
