Hermes Arceau Le Temps Suspendu Watch - World First Triple Retrograde

Jul 25, 2011
Hermes has proudly issued its new Arceau Le Temps Suspendu watch, to be officially presented at the Only Watch 2011 event.

The new Hermes watch is executed in a 43mm palladium case. On the front side it is assembled with a glare-proofed sapphire crystal. At 2 o’clock the case features a winding crown. The model is 30-meter water-resistant.

At the heart of the case is beating a 34mm self-winding mechanical movement with a “Time Suspended” module. It incorporates circular-grained and snailed bridges as well as an oscillating weight, embellished with a Cotes-de-Geneve pattern.

The mechanism consists of 254 individual parts, including 45 jewels. It operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and allows for a 42-hour power reserve.

The movement breathes life into 360° retrograde hour and minute skeleton hands as well as a retrograde date hand. It also provides the function of starting and stopping the hands, that is making time suspended. To activate this feature the user should press a pushbutton.

The new Hermes Arceau Le Temps Suspendu watch shows off a blue grained and snailed dial, embellished with a herringbone motif. The “Time Suspended” zone is revealed at 12 o’clock.

A matt indigo alligator leather strap, finalized by a folding safety clasp in palladium, completes the appealing design of the new Hermes watch.
