Hermès - Arceau Casaque

Hermès Arceau Casaque

Inspired by the board games, this new creation by Hermes features a horse-head pawn pattern and is available in four different colours : yellow, red, green and blue.

When Henri d’Origny created the Arceau watch in 1978, he revisited the aesthetic codes of the round watch. Eager to escape the confines of its classicism, he fitted it with asymmetrical lugs in a shape inspired by stirrups. Four decades later, the story continues with the Arceau Casaque, a new timepiece inspired by the board games universe.

This two-hands watch indicating the hours and minutes has a 36mm-diameter steel case and is driven by a quartz movement. As for the smooth calfskin strap, it matches the dial colour (electric blue, vertigo green, capucine red or lime) and is equipped with a pin buckle.

The case of the Arceau Casaque becomes an equestrian manège, an arena marked with curved hoof prints on the sand. Outlined against this background is the Cavale motif. The dial is crafted using champlevé, lacquer and transfer techniques. Hollows are first created in the dial base, then filled with lacquer. A matt tone-on-tone transferred chevron motif lends the final touch to this colourful composition. Their bright tones bring to mind the horse-head pawns of a classic French children’s board game. Yellow, red, green or blue: which will prove the fastest in flouting time?
