Van Cleef & Arpels: A Journey Through the Poetry of Time


With Omicron tearing its current wave around the world, most of us might be putting our VTL travel plans on hold. In the meantime, have your passport-free and PCR-free romantic getaway to Paris with bae or bring your kids to see the Eiffel Tower at Van Cleef & Arpel’s immersive exhibition, A Journey Through the Poetry of Time.

From 12th – 20th February 2022, the free installation recreates the streets of Paris right here at MBS.

Update: All slots have been fully booked, but stay tuned for updates on the Journey Through the Poetry of Time website for more openings in the future.

You can also imagine yourself in a Parisian garden or opera house while checking out Van Cleef & Arpel’s new Pont des Amoureux luxury watch collection. Their watches are embellished with diamonds and precious stones, and even feature tiny figurines that mechanically move to meet in the middle of the watch face.

The exhibition is open to the public, even if you’re more of a smartwatch or fitness tracker kind of person. This showcase of the art of watchmaking, backdropped by a neon Paris, is perfect for a romantic mini “getaway” right here in Singapore.
