HERMÈS – Arceau Millefiori

This is a story about love at first sight. Once upon a time, watchmaking and glassmaking collided and sparked an explosion of beauty and elegance. The Cristalleries Royales de Saint-Louis’ Millefiori technique and Hermès’ expertise in mechanics and design have come together to bring the pairing to life. In the 19th century, Millefiori was originally associated with paperweights to make a floral design to adorn the base of the heavy transparent ball. Working alongside the Cristalleries, Hermès showcased the artisan work to its Arceau timepiece. Presented in a 34mm white gold case set with 60 diamonds, the result is breathtaking: tiny pink flowers blossom on a raspberry background. In the heart of the bouquet, two white gold hands point to the minutes and hours and are brought to life by the in-house Hermès H1912 movement. Price: 45,000 CHF
