Arceau Petite Lune

Hermès 2013

Arceau Petite Lune

For the 35th anniversary of its Arceau watch, Hermès has imagined a moon-phase complication in a 38 mm version, suited to feminine wrists. Offered as two models with a white or black mother-of-pearl dial, the sloping Arabic numerals remain true to the original Arceau. The asymmetrical lugs which have the curve of a stirrup are another signature of Maison Hermès.
