According to Van Cleef & Arpels’ website, the Ludo bracelet flatters the wrist like a belt complements a silhouette. Created with couture classics in mind, it features "honeycomb" or "brick" patterns by the Maison's artisans.

The collection offers various versions of the bracelet. Selections include the Ludo Secret watch in 18K rose gold with diamond and mother-of-pearl and another in rose gold, mother-of-pearl, and sapphire.

Ludo bracelets are also available in 18K white gold, diamond, and onyx or 18K yellow gold with diamond. Premium versions feature 18K yellow gold with diamond, lapis lazuli, sapphire, turquoise, or a combination. Additional Ludo secret watches are presented in 18K yellow gold, diamond, lapis lazuli, mother-of-pearl, sapphire, chrysoprase, emerald, coral, and ruby.

Like the Minaudière and the Mystery Set, the Ludo bracelet represents 1930s French elegance. Louis Arpels' wife and Ludo's inspiration, the French model Hélène Arpels, famously wore the bracelet over gloves or long sleeves, detailing its design.
