Hermes Launches Arceau Grands Fonds Limited Watch

The dial uses micro glass mosaic technology to present a vivid image of fish playing in the water, lighting the Arceau watch with bright colors. The face pattern is derived from the GrandsFonds scarf and consists of a large number of hand-made colorful inlays.

   The Arceau watch was designed by Henrid’Origny in 1978, giving low-key and unique lines to the expertise and creativity of arts and crafts. The round case features stirrup-shaped lugs that frame the micro glass mosaic dial. The colorful exotic fishes stand out against the blue-green background, recreating the theme of the GrandsFonds scarf designed by French artist Annie Faiivre in 1992. The microscopic world of stained glass created by Hermès watchmakers reflects AnnieFaivre’s rigorous skills and rich imagination.

   The micro-composition of a single dial takes more than a month. First, artisans select glass inlays of various colors, cut them, and melt them at temperatures in excess of 700 ° C to form filaments of the required specifications. The putty base consists of marble powder, lime and linseed oil for filling. The dial pattern is reproduced in proportion, and the inset area is carved and hollowed out with a utility knife.

   Then use a file to cut the stained glass tow into small cubes and fill them one by one with the help of wooden nails. After a month of drying, the mosaic decoration must have a perfectly flat surface-a real technical challenge for the glass craftsman who created it.

   The slender hands swept through the micro glass mosaic dial, showing the rhythm of Hermes’s self-winding H1837 self-winding movement that drives the hour and minute hands. The elegant white gold case is 41 mm in diameter, with a bottom design and a blue crocodile leather strap, which echoes the color palette. The dial, movement, case and strap of this watch are made by Hermès watchmakers.
