Hermès – Group Test: WorldTempus X Hermès – Style and Style

Brice Lechevalier

The ability of Hermès to reinvent itself and surprise us with an original and elegant way at the same time feeds my respect and confidence in fine watchmaking. Of course, as the founder of GMT magazine, watches that tell the time in multiple time zones don’t leave me alone. The Arceau Le Temps Voyageur by Hermès is as comfortable to wear as it is to look, with a simple time reading: home time on the counter at noon, and travel time on a small dial that switches to the next one. measuring a place. visit it, where it is met. The beautiful decoration of the rotor on the back remains in the spirit of the comfort of this small accessory, whose tone on the tone continues with the beautiful Hermès bracelet. The whole is light and harmonious. It is enough to easily go through the time zones.

There is nothing to guarantee Hermès watch collections. It’s always beautiful, refined, beautiful with some mischief that deserves a lot of attention. Indeed, Hermès always forces us to look at things, time and the world in a different way. This GMT watch – Hermès Arceau Le temps Voyageur – is no exception to the rule. Like Galileo upsetting our realities, Hermès does the same by turning time around the world. Behind this kind of expertise and real skill, Hermès offers us a simple watch. But isn’t simplicity the hallmark of beauty? When the effort is lost, the thing, the work is beautiful; the watch becomes Art.

For me, the deadline challenge is the best of all challenges. Not a week goes by that I don’t type “What’s the local time in the city?” “sometimes. So imagine a watch where you work, looking at the dial to see if the time is “good” or “bad”! This happiness will be increased in the 100 if I could check the local time for my colleagues from abroad on this new Hermès Arceau Le Temps Voyageur with its playful function developed with the master of the movement, Jean-François Mojon of Chronode . The beauty of this movement is that it is more than just a temporary appeal. Jean-François Mojon has created a system for children to play by using and reading (NB: the most timepieces are not only intimidating to use, but sometimes impossible to read without a supersonic experience!) The Hermès Arceau Le Temps Voyageur proves that although it is very difficult to achieve, They don’t have to be difficult to use, it should be a pleasure to have in hand.

The concept of watches at Hermès has always inspired a sense of joy, a taste for the importance of appreciating the watch and having fun with it. Even with a pragmatic and utilitarian appeal like the second time, Hermès can present itself with style and unexpected features. The Arceau Le Temps Voyageur watch, like many travel watches, has a dial that reproduces the world map. But if you look closely, you will see that the map on the dial of Arceau Le Temps Voyageur is not a map of our world. But it is an imaginary world, designed by the French architect Jérôme Colliard and first seen on a silk Hermès box: the Planisphere of a World. The home time is displayed on a window at noon, while the local time is displayed by a sub-dial, which is rotated around the map via a button on the dial at 9 o’clock and points to time period using a small redn. triangular number. It is a refreshing way to do this, inspired not only for thinking, but also for printing because, it must be said, the tactile and sensory sensation when pressing the button time and we see the sub-dial goes around the watch. It’s just cool.
