Hermes unveils Arceau Le Temps Voyageur in white
This 78-diamond-encrusted model features a moving diagram of the world’s timezones
Hermes has revealed the latest addition to its famed Arceau line of watches, the Arceau Le Temps Voyageur in white, containing a remarkable 78 diamonds.
The Arceau collection was originally launched by Henri d’Origny in 1978, and according to Hermes, "lends itself to a new expression of style and evokes the spirit of travel". The newest edition, which is available either in platinum and titanium or steel, features a unique moving decal showcasing the various timezones of the world.
The mobile counter and the home-time indication at 12 o’clock are driven by an exclusive 122-component module, housed in a thickness of 4.4 mm and integrated within the Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement. The mechanism as a whole powers the display of hours, minutes and a dual- time display with city indication
Three Arceau Le temps voyageur models – a 41 mm-diameter platinum iteration enhanced by a matt black DLC-treated titanium bezel, as well as an all-steel 38 mm-diameter version and its feminine interpretation set with 78 diamonds – are paired with alligator or Swift calfskin straps secured by a pin buckle and crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops in accordance with the saddlery and leatherwork expertise cultivated by the House.
This new model features a natural white mother-of-pearl dial and can be paired with a pearl grey alligator or calfskin strap.
