The result was a massive watch realized various materials and versions, one of them is the present rectangular rounded reference 15 101. It is in full 18k yellow gold and the massive triple stepped case has this shape to house the large rectangular movement. The dial has a particular aubergine color with applied gold baton indexes and date at 3 o’clock while at 6 is presenting the personalization for Van Cleef & Arpels.
