Hermes Reinvents the Travel Time Complication With Arceau Le Temps Voyageur
With a 24 timezone city-ring and moving dial.
Produced in steel in 38mm with blue dial and black DLC-treated grade 5 titanium in 41mm with black dial, the Arceau Le Temps Voyageur features a travel time dial set within a city ring representing 24 timezones.
A pusher on the caseband at the nine o’clock, obscured behind the bezel, advances the dial around the inside of the ring, allowing a timezone to be selected, while home time is displayed through a window at the 12 o’clock position.
The system, as well as being a unique blend of worldtimer and travel time complication, neatly illustrated Hermes’ signature playful style and also borrows its globe illustration from the brand’s “Planisphère d’un monde équestre” silk scarf.
The Arceau Le Temps is available now, via Hermes, with prices starting at £17,400 GBP (approximately $22,770 USD).
