La Montre Hermès has introduced a feminine version of its iconic Arceau Time model designed by Henri d’Origny. The Arceau was first designed 35 years ago, and now, to celebrate this anniversary, the brand is offering the Hermès Arceau Petite. A complication showing the moon phases, this automatic mechanical watch is encased in a gold 38 mm steel case and a mother of pearl dial. The Arceau Petite Lune is showcased exquisitely in a round steel case featuring asymmetrical lugs, with a curvaceous stir-up shape, which expresses the signature of the Maison Hermès.
The watch is available in two versions, mother of pearl white dial or black iridescent. The hours pass over the sloping numerals elegantly, while the edges are emphasized by net rhodium. The moon phases reveal on a hard deep blue decorated disc with a moon and stars, while a blue pointer-type date indicates the days of the lunar cycle. With a power reserve of 42 hours, its plates and bridges are snailed, and its oscillating weight is decorated with a Côtes de Genève motif.
The watch’s alligator strap embarks Hermès saddle stitching technique and is s available in three colors — indigo blue, elephant gray, or black.
