The 43 mm case of the new Hermes watch is crafted from steel. It provides the complete calendar function via the day and month apertures. The dial demonstrates a herringbone pattern one would see on saddle rugs. It is completed with stamped and rhodium-plated Arabic numerals as those featured by the original model. The sloping design of the numerals echoes the movement of the hands.
The opaline silvered dial catches the glance by a broad opening at 6 o’clock demonstrating the deep-blue moon disc with rhodium-plated stars. The moon disc is framed by a rhodium-plated flange with the calendar display. The counter is embellished with the snailed motif. The dial is protected by a glare-proof sapphire crystal.
The self-winding movement, beating inside the timepiece, is visible via the transparent case-back. The movement boasts circular-grained and snailed bridges, as well as an oscillating weight adorned with “Cotes de Geneve” pattern.
The Hermes Arceau Grande Lune watch is secured to the wrist on a matt havana alligator or matt graphite-black alligator strap fitted with a safety folding-clasp.
