Van Cleef & Arpels has a long history when it comes to creating secret watches.

A master at high jewelry watches, Van Cleef & Arpels has a long history when it comes to creating secret watches. For at least a century, the brand has built high jewelry wristwatches with covers that open to reveal a watch dial — a woman’s secret jewel. This new Frivole Secrete watch is a work of sublime beauty with multiple fancy-cut diamond shapes magnificently set in a cascade of flowers. Even better is the fact that the watch can be transformed into a clip or a pendant. Even the watch dial — hidden beneath a floral cover — is diamond pavé. Each of the 459 diamonds (weighing 4.91 carats) is flawlessly set by Van Cleef & Arpels’ master gem setters.
Price: $121,000 in 18K white gold
