This new timepiece from the Arceau collection is dressed in chestnut livery, elegantly interpreting the brand’s original source of inspiration, the world of horsemanship. Its Swift calfskin strap as well as its numerals and hourmarkers acclaim the brand’s theme for the year, “The Great Escape”. The extended stirrup of the case, asymmetrical attachments, the beautiful rhythmic numerals on the dial, the direct-drive centre seconds-hand with its nimbus of Hermès orange, and the harmoniously integrated chronograph counters and date window are an expression of a long history of dedication and savoir-faire. The Arceau transcends time with the bold simplicity of a grand classic.
