Hermes: Aesthetic Codes

Hermes Arceau 78 Watch

Since its creation in 1978, the Arceau line from Hermes–designed by legendary artistic director Henri d’Origny–has evolved into countless iterations. As the watch turns 40, the brand has unveiled the new Arceau 78. Named after its year of birth, the Arceau 78 comes in a stainless steel measuring 40mm in diameter, while the dial comes in an elegant grained anthracite color. This watch also features sloping numerals, which were inspired by the movement of a horse’s gallop and also Hermes’ highly-recognizable asymmetrical lugs. Above all, the brand has successfully added yet another eye-catching design to this iconic collection.
