The Arceau round dial watch was designed by Henri d’Origny in 1978, inspired by the horse stir. Now, the new Arceau Soleil watch gives a new style interpretation to this classic series. The geometric pattern of the sun pattern designed by the Swiss artist Fred Rawyler for the Hermès square scarf is cleverly interpreted by light and shadow, and then decorated on the dial, making this new watch bright and charming.
The sun radiation pattern alternates light and dark, presenting the effect of light and shadow of gradual color, which highlights the psychedelic beauty of the slender pointer movement. The diamond hour markers under the sapphire crystal case seem to float on the dial, and the blue or gray translucent lacquered dial adds a layer of mystery to the watch. The case of the Arceau Soleil watch is light and delicate. It is made of stainless steel in the Hermès watch workshop and is set with exquisite diamonds. It is matched with a crocodile leather strap to show elegance and sophistication.
Hermès creates all kinds of objects. With the careful tempering of his craftsmen’s dexterous hands, he creates objects that can blend in with the wearer’s spirit and breath. Born in exquisite and superb technology, the illusion is a superb technique, and it combines practical and ingenious functions, revealing unexpected lightness and agility. These objects make ordinary daily illusions a wonderful stage; let every moment that flows quietly become a precious time.

Time is also an object to Hermès. Hermès extracts the uniqueness of time from the lingering sense of compactness. In addition to measuring, sorting, and driving, Hermès boldly pursues another view of time: an exciting, free-flowing space that allows people to move around freely, creating a beautiful fantasy space without forgetting joy and interest.
