In 1978, Henri d’Originy imagined the Arceau model, a timeless and classically elegant watch inspired by saddler: a stirrup detail.
The original asymmetrical shape of its lugs, the elegant shape of its numerals and its equestrian references: both its design and its connotations have combined to make the Arceau an iconic Hermès watch.
Ever since, through successive evolutions and variations, the model has been constantly renewed while remaining loyal to its original spirit.
The new HermèsArceau Chrono Colors in their white and navy blue versions feature matching dials and straps that thus extend and enrich the collection.
On both these models, the saddle stitching and soft, smooth feel of the Evercalf indigo blue and Epsom white calfskin straps testify to the House tradition of excellence in leather craftsmanship.
The three counters and date are harmoniously arranged on the dial framed by a 43 mm-diameter steel case.
The chronograph hands and the small seconds at 3 o’clock discreetly display the signature Hermès shade of orange.
