Hermès Arceau Lipstick

Each year, Hermès offers new seasonal shades, colours that set the tone. In 2013, watch straps from the Maison are adopting lipstick pink – a tangy shade framing a case designed in 1978 by Henri d’Origny and featuring a curve inspired by the equestrian world.

Hermès introduces two steel models with a matt white dial: a 28 mm quartz model and another 32 mm version housing a self-winding movement driving a central seconds hand and a date display at 3 o’clock. These models are fitted with a smooth Lipstick pink calfskin strap graced with a tone-on-tone interpretation of the emblematic Hermès saddle stitching.
