Hermes Arceau Cavales Watch

The Arceau watch never stands still, and the classics and the present are out of the unique characteristics of the times. In 1978, Mr. Henrid’Origny designed the first Arceau watch, whose iconic asymmetric lug design showed a unique charm that was different from the traditional watch aesthetic of the time. Every detail of this watch has been carefully considered, showing the elegant and noble temperament. The contradiction between strict precision and bold creativity has achieved the chic and free yet rigorous and low-key Arceau spirit.

   The 36mm and 28mm models feature unique diamond-set bezels. 70 or 60 diamonds complement the mother-of-pearl dial, recreating the famous ‘Cavales’ rider theme.

   The other 28mm model is set with 56 diamonds on the outer bezel, and the dark black dial is filled with black lacquer.
   The ArceauCavales watch is shining but not arrogant. It shows the mastery of watchmaking and also shows Hermes’ unique understanding and perception of time.
