La Montre Hermès Launches Newest Timepiece at Baselworld

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Basel, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

La Montre Hermès, led by CEO Luc Perramond, kicked off this year’s Baselworld watch and jewelry show with the unveiling of the house’s newest timepiece, the Arceau Le Temps suspendu.

In keeping with the “time made-to-measure” theme that originated in 2008 with the Cape Cod Grandes Heures series, the latest Arceau watch boasts an impressive new complication developed in collaboration with Agenhor founder Jean-Marc Wiederrecht in Geneva.

By pressing the pusher at 9 o’clock, the wearer can stop the hour and minute hands around noon while completely concealing the date hand—effectively “suspending” time, as the mechanism itself continues to track standard time. Two minutes or even two months later—depending on the wearer’s preference—another touch of the pusher will reposition the three hands to their original place and time, resuming their movement. The module enlists the help of a triple retrograde system including two 360-degree functions (for the hour and minute hands). A world first, this innovative watch is protected by two patents.
