Hermès: Arceau steel with diamonds/2008

Designed thirty years ago by Henri d’Origny, the Arceau watch is the grand Hermès watchmaking classic.

It stands out for its asymmetrical stirrup-shaped lug – a nod to the horse, the brand’s first historical companion – and the slanting numerals that appear to be dancing across an elegantly understated dial.The steel model comes in a new version featuring a bezel set with Top Wesselton VVS full-cut diamonds. Available in two sizes, a choice of white or pink mother-of-pearl dial and five matching straps in calfskin or alligator leather.
