The brand name Hermès evokes thoughts of seemly styled products. Each creation, whether it is a bag, belt or scarf, conforms to a sense of proprietary. Nothing is gauche or outré. Indeed, all the firm’s products exhibit a decorous style.

While most eyes focus on the Maison’s handbags and scarves, the firm’s watches are worthy of consideration. They uphold the same design ethos as the brand’s other products and sometimes incorporate artistic crafts.

This latest creation, the Hermès Arceau Petite Lune Jeté de diamants et saphirs, is housed in the company’s distinctive Arceau case with its stirrup-shaped lugs positioned above noon. It also features the self-winding Manufacture Hermès H1837 movement, requiring minimal wearer input, making it ideal for daily wear.

The case and dial are suffused with randomly positioned diamonds and sapphires. A crescent-shaped aperture reveals the moon in a playful and poetic format. Feuille-shaped hour and minute hands float above a sea of mother-of-pearl. Finally, a pointer-style date display, located at 6 o’clock, completes the inventory of functions.

The brand’s press release

Created in 1978 by Henri d’Origny, the Arceau watch mingles understatement with distinctiveness. 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 self-winding movement complete with a Petite Lune module and driving the hours, minutes, date as well as the moon- phase 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.
