Wristwatches Inspired by Hummingbirds

Share
Hummingbirds with their amazingly bright plumage have inspired a whole collection of luxurious watches. Named the Lady Arpels Extraordinary Hummingbirds, the collection has been created by the watchmaking house of Van Cleef and Arpels.

The watch dials depict the birds searching for nectar and collecting pollen from flowers. Three different techniques have been used while creating the timepieces – gem-setting, champleve enamelling, and three-dimensional enameling.

The Hummingbirds watches, equipped with reliable mechanical movements, demonstrate 38 mm cases rendered in white gold and sparkling with scintillating round diamonds.
