around the world around a phone

After the Arceau Heures de la Lune, presented in 2019, the house of Hermès has created its two new horological complications related to travel, which the house reinterprets in its lightness and the poetic, always taking this process to separate each object. The industry is approached, watchmaking, leather goods, silk, clothing or the world of the house.
Available in two styles, a platinum watch with a black DLC-treated 41 mm titanium bezel and a 38 mm steel case with a blue dial, the Arceau Le Temps Voyageur is perfect for the wrist of a man or woman. Thought, attitude and thinking are not related to gender.

The new Arceau Le Temps Voyageur lives up to its name. First of all because it is dedicated to travel, with a time display in 24 time zones, the map that shows the dial clearly points to this topic, but also – and a this is really new – because time itself, in a sense.

This innovation takes the case of the Arceau watch, designed in 1979 by Henri d’Origny, known for its precise materials and the typography of its numbers, one can easily imagine blowing by the speed of the galloping horse. It’s always in the house’s mind – don’t we say at Hermès that the horse is the house’s first customer? – the equestrian world forms the back of the watch dial, with a planisphere adapted from Jérôme Colliard’s sketch of a square published in 2016 for the Saut Hermès. This “Planisphere of an equestrian world” re-branded the landscape as a miniature world of the horse. Please, like this last wink, Hermès is here again: don’t look for the time zone about Paris, replaced here by “24, faubourg” to say more to aesthetes around the world .
