Enjoy Hermes Arceau Grande Lune Watch

Feb 22, 2011
Hermes unveils its new Arceau Grande Lune watch inspired by the initial Arceau model created in 1978 by Henri d’Origny. It honors the brand’s 175-year old equestrian heritage. The timepiece boasts a timelessly elegant trademark Hermes style, as well as an impressive set of complications.

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.
