Hermès Arceau Chrono Titane

It was in 1978 that Henri d’Origny created the Arceau model: a round watch that he decided to associate with asymmetrical lugs featuring a shape inspired by stirrups along with a distinctive and singular font.

Since then, interpreted through countless evolutions and variations, the line has been perpetually renewed while remaining true to its original spirit.

Equipped with a chronograph function and a 41 mm beadblasted titanium case, this sportier version radiates an appealingly light air. Its sloping numerals give the impression of having been blown in on a playful breeze. The three counters and the date are harmoniously arranged. Aesthetic characteristics inspired by saddle-making are showcased on both models, fitted with a natural Barenia calfskin strap, or with a black embossed Barenia calfskin strap, on which the saddle stitching and inimitable feel testify to the tradition of leather-making excellence cultivated by the Maison.

Above and beyond purely equestrian design codes, the Arceau Chrono Titane asserts a ne balance between sturdiness and airy lightness.
