Hermès is launching two variations of its iconic rose gold creation: The Arceau Le Temps Suspendu watch. Rewarded by several watch industry prizes, this new horological composition is developed exclusively for Hermès and is a world ﬁrst. Behind a simple and playful gesture lies a sophisticated mechanism with subtle play of cams, pinions and segments. Protected by two patents – one for its construction and the other for the play-reducing gear teeth – this gem of horological engineering alone comprises no less than 24 jewels and is equipped with three play-reducing wheels. The running time and suspended time phases are coordinated by two synchronized column wheels, one driving the hours, and the other the minutes coupled with the date. Each part is hand-decorated in Switzerland with circular graining, engraving and Côtes de Genève, according to the ﬁnest watchmaking traditions. The rose gold model initially issued in a limited edition now comes with a choice of two dial colors: silvered or chocolate brown.
