Van Cleef & Arples: Bal Proust
She who was considered by many as the queen of Parisian society, Baroness Guy de Rothschild,
had decided to celebrate the centennial birthday of writer Marcel Proust with a Ball. To create
their costumes, the guests had only to plunge into the author’s multi-volume masterpiece, “In
Search of Lost Time”.
The Bal Proust timepiece is adorned with refined white gold silhouettes appearing from the
mother-of-pearl background, gracefully twirling around the dial as time goes by. This 24h Poetic
ComplicationTM is an ode to romantic Paris.
