Hermès probably won’t be the main brand to consider when talking top of the line watches or Haute Horlogerie, however indeed, a portion of their watches are unquestionably having a place with this class. One of them is the new Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune. Introduced to us yesterday at the SIHH, it was by a wide margin the most fascinating watch of their novelties.

Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune

There are really two variants of the new Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune watch, one with an aventurine dial and one with a shooting star dial. Each is restricted to 100 pieces and have their own exceptional number. The two watches empower you to see the moon stages exhibited at the same time for the northern and the southern sides of the equator. This is being accomplished by the circles that float on either the shooting star or aventurine dial, showing the moons (made of mother-of-pearl) to the wearer.

Although the pictures in this article show a similar dial positions, we shot some photographs ourselves with various places of the turning discs.

We clearly love the space and moon subject here on Fratello, so we can’t hold back to dive into this watch a piece deeper. A more top to bottom article on this Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune watch will be distributed later on.

Caliber H1837 + Module

Hermès utilizes their in-house caliber H1837 development as a base and an elite “L’heure de la lune” module for the attractive energy of the versatile counters. The development is self-winding and uses 193 components, and another 117 components are added for the module.  It ticks at 28,800vph and has a width of 26mm. The base module estimates 3.7mm in thickness and the module adds another 4.2mm. The Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune shows hours, minutes, a date and a twofold moon stage (show of moon stages seen from the northern and southern hemispheres).

White Gold Case

The instance of the Arceau L’heure de la Lune was at that point planned in 1978 by Henri d’Origny (it is cool that Hermès specifies their fashioners) and is made of 18-carat white gold. This case has been utilized for some different watches and still is in the current assortment, of course.

Although I love shooting star as a material for dials, the aventurine is flawless also. The two materials have been utilized by different brands too (and for a long time), however it never disillusions truly. In the event that I needed to settle on a decision between these two adaptations of the Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune, I would most likely go for the aventurine. Albeit the shooting star is maybe the material with regards to moon related watches, the aventurine is a particularly ideal portrayal of the sky.

The watch comes on an excellent crocodile tie, including a white gold clasp. The Aventurine dial adaptation has a matt void blue tie and the watch with shooting star dials comes on a matt graphite dark strap.

Retail cost of the Hermès Arceau L’heure de la Lune is €23.000,=.
