Hermès Arceau Le temps suspendu 38mm

Hermès has created a 38mm version of its Arceau Le temps suspendu watch, the playful timepiece introduced by the brand in 2011. This new model is available with stainless steel and rose gold case versions with the option of gem-setting. These new models come with opalin silvered dial with or without white natural mother-of-pearl.

Hermès Arceau Le temps suspendu 38mm

The Arceau Le temps suspendu watch incorporates a very mischievous function: it makes time run on or stand still. At any time, by operating the pusher at 9 o’clock, you can halt the hour and minute hands at round 12 o’clock as it disengages both the hands without interrupting the movement operation. When you press the pusher once more, the hands will automatically get aligned to the corresponding time.
