In Paris, the romantic capital of art, many artists have been born and various famous luxury brands have been created. For the trend and fashion, it is sensitive and sentimental, it is bold and bold, Hermes is born from it.
Hermes has a long history, starting with the manufacture of high-grade horse tools, and then gradually expanding into travel bags, jewelry, perfumes, scarves and watches, we can see from these products, Hermes has always maintained the French romantic and artistic style, for the times branded exclusive. In fact, not only leather goods and silk scarves are the hallmarks of Hermes, hermes watches are also breaking through, with the introduction of a number of iconic classic watches.
Hermes Arceau78 watch’s unique stable-shaped asymmetric ear forms a unique style.
Hermes watches have classic aesthetic designs and reliable performance designs, writing on its legendary watchmaking history. It has become a watchmaking world with its continuous progress of watchmaking strength, artistic feelings and the interpretation of time-specific. In 1928, Hermes ushered in the era of watches that belonged to it, producing watches with Swiss specialist watch makers and establishing a foothold in the watchmaking world. In 1978, Hermes founded a watch company in Bir, Switzerland, which pioneered another new phase of Hermes watches in the field of professional watchmaking, with complex features that Hermes has been exploring for a long time.
This year, Hermes’ new moon-phase watch, Arceau L’heure de la lune, won the best calendar and astronomical watch for the 2019 Geneva Superior Watch with its unique moon phase design. One of the highlights of this monthly timewatch is its ability to present both the north and south moons.
The watch “amplified” the entire lunar phase function on the dial, with two “moons” at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock on the meteorite dial, but Hermes turned the moon phase upside down, the southern hemisphere up and the northern hemisphere lower. Two sub-dials are suspended on the lunar phase disk in the northern and southern hemispheres, one of which is used to show time and the other is used to show the date, and the two dials rotate around the disk like satellites, slowly covering the two moons on the dial to show the moon phase’s profit-and-loss state.
On closer inspection, the moon in the southern hemisphere, the moon at 12 o’clock, is decorated with a pegitor. The pegasis is inspired by the illustrator Dimitri Rybaltchenko’s image of a peg: two front hoofs raised high and their wings stretched on their backs; but look at the moon at 6 o’clock, which paints a true surface image of the moon, a “magic” and “realistic” interweaving feeling. In fact, it also reflects hermes’ poetic feelings.
Such a phase design is thanks to a patented mechanism by Hermes that allows us to see the moon phase as it works in the universe. This mechanism requires the addition of 117 additional parts to the movement of 193 parts, allowing the two subdials of the time display and date display to rotate around the dial.
