Van Cleef & Arpels watches and trip
gallery neiman marcus his hers poetic wishes watches
Price: $1,090,000

Shoppers can find their "once upon a time" this holiday season with "his and hers" Van Cleef & Arpels "Poetic Wish" watches, which feature mini works of art on the outside -- one of a man atop the Notre Dame and the other of a woman at the Eiffel Tower. The scenes become animated as the time passes. On the man's watch, a shooting star moves higher in the sky to indicate the passing minutes.

Both watches are encased in 18-karat white gold and set with diamonds and come in handmade mother-of-pearl inlaid wood cabinets.

The fairytale continues with two business-class tickets to Paris and Geneva to tour the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique and watchmaking shops.

But the true "happily ever after" of this million-dollar gift is that $10,000 of the proceeds will go to The Norman Mailer Center, which offers support and other programs to writers.
