Hermès Arceau Time Suspended watch is the world’s first complication that suspends time

Black leather straps have a raw elegant feature to its beauty. Hermès Arceau comes with a feature called Time Suspended (Le Temps Suspendu) where ‘its owner can forget the present time thanks to an ingenious system of cams, pinions and segments’. It has a module developed in cooperation with Agenhor, Geneva, and its founder Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. The watch can alternate automatically between real and suspended time, coordinated by two synchronised column wheels – one for hours and one for minutes and date. The watch is a limited edition of just 174 pieces in rose gold. It comes with 254 parts including 45 jewels, a circular-grained and snailed bridges and oscillating weight adorned with Côtes de Genève motif. There are a couple of dials – an opaline silvered dial with herringbone motif for rose gold or steel model and a black dial with herringbone motif for steel model. The straps are Matte Havana or black alligator and feature a folding safety clasp in rose gold or in steel.
