HERMES the Arceau Le temps Suspendu


It’s time to dream at Hermès. A new chapter in the story that started in 2011, Arceau Le temps suspendu adopts a 38 mm case and prolongs the interlude in time begun with the first model. A press on the pusher at 9 o’clock, and the magic begins to weave its spell as the hour and minute hands come to a halt at round 12 o’clock. The time is erased from the dial and thus dissociated from standard time that begins running thanks to the Manufacture H912 movement. A playful hand, turning counter-clockwise on an indicator between 4 and 5 o’clock, signals that the mechanism is indeed in operation. Another press brings the hands back to their proper place and time starts running again.
