Hermès colour codes the Arceau novelty in shades of hazelnut and blue
The Hermès Arceau Très Grand Modèle collection expands its colour palette with two new options. Are you Team Blue or Team Hazelnut?

Giving contemporary classics a new lease of life is Hermès with a pair of Arceau Très Grand Modèle (TGM) that refreshes its Henri d'Origny-established design codes with a new paint job. At once timeless yet fanciful, the 40mm large watches play on a paradoxical blend that combines its practical stainless steel frame with the whimsy of sloping hour markers inspired by a galloping equine. Distinctively Hermès and a delight to marvel at, this mechanical self-winding timepiece is now updated in a lacquered blue and a hazelnut brown — which just begs the question: Which one's more your speed?

If you're a true blue kinda gal...
You love sharp suiting and your aesthetic totally takes a leaf from Miranda Priestly's playbook. Sophistication is your middle name and the cooler end of the colour spectrum is your natural habitat. With a dial of lacquered blue and silvered numerals, this edition of the Arceau TGM is your haute horlogerie counterpart. Plus, the matte alligator straps dyed a rich abyss blue totally complements just about every outfit under the sun.

If you've got a sweet tooth...
You might have been Willy Wonka in your past life and all things chocolate (and chocolate-coloured) is right up your sugar rush alley. Working that sweetness to perfection is the hazelnut brown Arceau TGM, hued in a soft shade reminiscent of toffee-topped sundae. Decorated with a stamped chevron motif — bon-bon wrapper, anyone? — and surrounded by a sunburst chapter ring, this is 'wrist candy' redefined.
