Hermès ARCEAU Petite Lune Jeté de diamants et saphirs

This new Hermès Arceau Petite Lune watch is adorned with 87 sapphires and 68 diamonds set in «Jeté» from the 38 mm steel case to the natural white mother-of-pearl dial. Its dial design takes inspiration from Franco-German artist Édouard Baribeaud’s work for the Hermès silk scarf titled Acte III, Scène I, la Clairière…inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Swept over by slender hands, the lunar glow of the mother-of-pearl is enlivened by random setting and stretches to the pointer-type date and sloping numerals at 6 o’clock. Fitted with a Petite Lune module, the Manufacture Hermès H1837 self-winding movement drives the hours, minutes, date as well as the moonphase appearing between 10 and 11 o’clock.
