An even more poetic vision of the Arceau icon, all in transparency.
The Watch to See and Have
In 1978 when Henri d’Origny imagined for Hermès a watch in the image of the house, he brought into his repertoire a piece that played happily between fantasy and classicism.
With this typography of figures inspired by the fascinating movement of a galloping horse, Henri d’Origny composed an axis of time very different from what was done then. This time in 2020, the Arc is a little more enigmatic.
The new Skeleton Arch offers all the complexity of mechanical architecture. The roundness of a 25.6 mm steel case, open on a smoked sapphire dial.
Here is the deep black detaching the mechanics of time. Stitched with a beaded timer and silver numbers, the transparency of the center reveals the skeleton movement. A wonder made even more mesmerizing by the figures in levitation.
An aerial display that makes it one of the most poetic watches of the beginning of 2020 – the Arceau Skeleton is the ideal watch to see and have. All stamped with the ultimate luxury from Hermès.
