Designed by Henri d’Origny in 1978, the Arceau watch lends itself to a fresh illustration of spontaneity and expertise. Its round case with asymmetrical stirrup-shaped lugs is the setting for a thrilling and futuristic horse race, brought to life by vibrant colours, hand-painted on a glittering or iridescent dial.
We are thus propelled into the futuristic and colourful universe of the illustrator Ugo Bienvenu, who designed the Space Derby silk scarf, inspired by 20th century American comic book superheroes, and imagined brightly coloured cosmic equestrian teams: a breathless derby in the stars; mysterious planets and constellations; as well as jockeys racing at full speed on a track winding through space.

Miniature-painted on an aventurine or pink opaline dial, this scene lends a new creative dimension to the Arceau watch. This art requires extreme care, a sure touch and a keen sense of colour in order to compose and give life to a palette of nuances, contrasts and unique details. The glowing shades spring to life through a multitude of layers of micro-painting meticulously and successively applied using a brush and dried in a hot kiln. Two limited series reinterpret the original design of the Space Derby silk scarf. The first, crafted in white gold and aventurine, reveals a jockey and his aerodynamic chariot, pulled by a thoroughbred in armour, beneath a star-studded sky. The second, in diamond-set white gold, features a crimson moon-phase display as well as a flame-haired driver holding the reins of a horse-drawn carriage hurtling at full speed. Both models are equipped with a Manufacture Hermès mechanical self-winding movement and paired with an abyss blue or old rose alligator strap matching the dial colour. They are entirely crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops, based on the skills cultivated by the Maison.
