n 1978, Henri d’Origny freed the round watch from established aesthetic codes by imagining a classic and singular curve: the Arceau watch was born. Its case with asymmetrical stirrup-shaped attachments and sloping Arabic numerals evoking a galloping horse reveal a discreet and enduring elegance that lends itself to every possible expression of Hermès creativity and know-how.
The sunburst blue face of the new Arceau Grande Lune is paired with a matching Abyss blue alligator strap, an intense colour accentuated by the casual elegance of the steel case and sapphire caseback.
Swept over by slender hands and enlivened by sloping numerals creating an in-motion effect, this dynamic-looking display is complemented by a moon phase and date counter adorned with a starry sky, as well as a double day and month window appearing beneath the Hermès logo. Hours, minutes, seconds and complete calendar indications are displayed to the rhythm of a mechanical self-winding movement housed in a case crafted in the Hermès watchmaking workshops, as are the dial and strap.
