Hermès Arceau Petite Lune Jeté de diamants et saphirs

Hermès unveils a new timepiece, Arceau Petite Lune Jeté de diamants et saphirs.

Diamonds and sapphires light up the steel case and motherof- pearl dial of the Arceau Petite Lune watch.

Created in 1978 by Henr i d’Or igny, the Arceau watch mingles under s t atement with di st inct ivenes s. Its round case with asymmetrical stirrup-shaped lugs and sloping Arabic numerals evoking a galloping horse endow it with timeless elegance.

Arceau Petite Lune is lit up by 87 sapphires and 68 diamonds set in «Jeté» from the 38 mm steel case to the natural white mother-of-pearl dial. As if blown in by a gentle breeze, the azure blue stones surround a mischievous Moon sparkling against a deep blue sky dotted with stars. The mischievous night star, designed by Franco-German artist Édouard Baribeaud for the Hermès silk scarf titled Acte III, Scène I, la Clairière..., is freely inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Swept over by slender hands, the lunar glow of the mother-of-pearl is enlivened by random setting and stretches to the pointer-type date and sloping numerals at 6 o’clock. The whole fascinating performance is choreographed by the Manufacture Hermès H1837 sel f-winding movement complete with a Petite Lune module and driving the hours, minutes, date as well as the moonphase appearing between 10 and 11 o’clock. A sapphire blue alligator strap, crafted in accordance with the saddlery-leathermaking skills of the Maison, adorns this watch entirely designed in the Hermès watchmaking workshops.
