Hermès - Arceau 78

Hermès Arceau 78

Ever since its creation, Arceau has played with different styles, a natural privilege afforded by its understated design and its deliberately simple lines.

Arceau 78 features a round case in mirror-polished stainless steel, topped by a beadblasted bezel in matt brushed stainless steel and distinctive equestrian-inspired asymmetrical lugs reflecting the origins of the Maison founded on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

This model features the understated and elegant allure of a timeless object paradoxically in tune with its time. In 1978, Henri d’Origny ‘unbridled’ aesthetic codes by combining a round case with asymmetrical lugs inspired by stirrups, and a sloping font evoking a horse’s galop.

This Very Large Model in stainless steel displays the hours, minutes and date at 6 o’clock and is powered  by a Swiss made quartz movement. The finely grained anthracite dial is punctuated by slender cream-coloured luminescent hands and Arabic numerals. This delicate contrast accentuates the characteristic design of its sloping numerals. The Arceau 78 is fitted with a natural Barenia calf leather strap crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops, as indeed are the case and dial.
