Following the aesthetic codes of the original Arceau watch created by Henri d’Origny in 1978, the round case of the Casaque model becomes an equestrian manège, an arena marked with curved hoof prints on the sand. Outlined against this background is the Cavale motif.
The dial is crafted using champlevé, lacquer and transfer techniques. Hollows are first created in the dial base, and then filled with lacquer. A matt tone-on-tone transferred chevron motif lends the final touch to this colourful composition.
Their bright tones bring to mind the horse-head pawns of a classic French children’s board game. The Arceau Casaque watch is available in Yellow, red, green and blue versions.
