Her­mès Arceau Robe Du Soir

DA MAN - Caliber - - WOMEN'S WATCHES -

Based on the “Robe du Soir” silk scarf de­sign by Florence Man­lik, Her­mès’ Arceau Robe Du Soir watch fea­tures tiny jux­ta­posed leather squares that is set against an elec­tric blue back­drop and match­ing calf­skin strap. Of course, this process is any­thing but easy, or for that mat­ter, com­mon, since mo­saic artists usu­ally use glass or stone in­stead of leather. It took about a year and a half of re­search and de­vel­op­ment to make this watch hap­pen. To start, no less than 3,500 tesserae are finely cut out from care­fully selected full-grain. From this, 2,200 of leather frag­ments are fit into the dial to make up the eques­trian mo­tif. Be­sides the dial, the watch it­self takes de­sign cues from the Arceau de­vel­oped by Henri d’Origny in 1978 and comes equipped with stir­rup-in­spired asym­met­ri­cal lugs. The Arceau Robe Du Soir, how­ever, marks the first time that an Arceau is in­tro­duced in rose gold.
