Through Arceau L’heure de la lune watch, Hermès wants to offer you a unique vision of Earth’s satellite, those simultaneous display of moon phases in both Northern and Southern hemispheres. Crafted from real meteorite that landed in New York in the mid 60s, martian Black Sahara meteorite dial turns to reveal mother-of-pear moons. Available in three limited-edition models, time moves around extraterrestrial dials to the rhythm of an exclusive module, combined with an Hermès Manufacture H1837 movement.
The unique, mischievous displays have swapped cardinal points with south in the north and vice versa. That topsy-turvy direction invites you to lose your bearings with your head in the stars. On the meteorite dial, the moon at 12 o’clock features a Pegasus designed by Dimitri Rybaltchenko. It’s portrayal of a winged horse hints at a passage between two worlds, it’s called Pleine Lune (Full Moon). At 6 o’clock position, the moon provides a realistic depiction of its surface. Hermès says this watch is a combination of free-spirited and impertinent vision of mechanical watchmaking, it’s where magic and reality merge to reveal the hidden side of contemporary watchmaking.
