Arceau Grande Lune

A deep blue dial

of a timeless model
La Cote des Montres - December 8th, 2020

The new Arceau Grande Lune featuring a deep blue dial with a sunburst motif highlights the creativity of a timeless model. In 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.



a Hermès object  

Hermès creates objects. Objects shaped by the hands of artisans to make them true companions for those who wear them. Practical, functional and stemming from uncompromising expertise, they radiate the lightness of the unexpected. They make everyday life their playground, and each instant a uniquely special moment.

For Hermès, time is also an object. Its inherent tension is translated by the house into a singular characteristic. Rather than measuring, ordering, and seeking to control it, Hermès dares to explore another time, designed to arouse emotions, open up interludes and create spaces for spontaneity and recreation.
