Hermes’ Gives Arceau Casaque Timepieces a Vivid Twist

Hermes’ Arceau timepiece has a heritage stretching back to 1978 when the iconic French brand’s artistic director, Henri d’Origny, fitted the watch with asymmetrical lugs in a shape inspired by stirrups.

This style has remained enduringly popular to this very day and now Hermes have returned to the classic piece to give it a contemporary twist with vivid primary colours and a detailed, but minimalist, dial.

The dial is crafted using champlevé, lacquer and transfer techniques. Hollows are first created in the dial base, then filled with lacquer, while a matt tone-on-tone transferred chevron motif lends the final touch.

Each of the watch’s 36mm case is made from steel and is powered by a quartz movement. The watch is available in a choice of red, blue green and yellow and each comes sporting a matching calfskin strap.

Founded in Paris in 1837, Hermes has grown to become one of the world’s most famous luxury labels.
