We begin the second day at Hermès.
Hermès de la Lune. A moonphase display watch where the focus is on the moon rather than the hour/minutes. Two moons are displayed, one from the southern hemisphere and another from the northern hemisphere.
Two versions are available. One in an adventurine dial and another with a meteorite dial. Each edition is a LE of 100 pieces. CHF 26,000 for either edition.
Gallop a ladies collection designed with a young American designer. The idea is to make a feminine watch without using gemstones. But sensuous with shapes and design. For example, the numerals are not all the same, but become smaller as it ascends the dial. To create a sense of speed.
Several versions. SS, SS with diamonds, RG, RG with diamonds. Price range from CHF 3,750.
Arceau 78 is new. With a new finishing. Grained, textures dial in a brushed case. Quartz mvt. CHF 3,175.
