Haute Time: Hermès Launches All New Arceau Temps Suspendu at Baselworld

If you’ve ever had ‘one of those days’ where you wish that time would just stop–even for a few minutes–then Hermès newest timepiece is just for you.

In true Hermès fashion, the new Arceau Le Temps Suspendu not only pushes the standard barriers of fashion and technology, but now, it is revolutionizing the concept of time. As its name suggests, this new timepiece actually gives the allusion that one can suspend time.

With Hermès’ sophisticated system of cams, pinions and segments, the watch has been intricately designed so that its user can automatically enter the watch into “Time Suspended” mode, where the hour hand pauses at 12 o’clock and the date hand disappears completely. The technology is so impeccable, that Le Temps Suspendu is able to return to reality at once without any disruption in accuracy or its movement.

The Acreau Temps Suspendu features a 42-hour power reserve, retrograde hours, minutes and date, and stop/start push-piece for the hands. It currently comes in 18-karat pink gold or 316 L stainless steel, with Dial Opaline silvered (pink gold or steel model) or black (steel model) with Matt havana brown or black alligator leather strap.
