Van Cleef & Arpels’ Gift to the Mailer Center

9 Oct

His & Hers 2012
“Poetic Wish” timepieces

This year, Van Cleef & Arpels‘ “Poetic Wish” timepieces were selected to be in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. For each “His & Hers” set that is purchased, Neiman Marcus will donate $10,000 to the Norman Mailer Center. We are so grateful to the never-ending generosity of Van Cleef & Arpels, and are awe-stricken by the beauty and complexity of these timepieces. The text on the image reads:

His & Hers 2012

It all begins with a classic story: Boy meets girl. A romance is sparked. They share a kiss at midnight on Paris’s Pont des Arts. But fate intervenes, and they are separated. Each night, they send wishes – he upon a star, she upon a kite – that, one day, they will reunite.

This tale of love found and lost inspired the “Poetic Wish” watches from Van Cleef & Arpels. Mini works of art on the outside and exemplary displays of technical watch-making behind the dial, these masterpieces are in need of their own happily ever after.

The lucky buyer will also receive two business-class tickets to Paris and Geneva to tour the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique, atelier, and watchmaking workshops. Neiman Marcus will donate $10,000 for each His & Hers 2012 gift sold to The Norman Mailer Center, which supports writers who challenge readers’ perspectives on the world around them.

Van Cleef & Arpels “Poetic Wish” Watches & Trip starting at $1,090,000
