Baselworld 2013-hermès Brand New Sports Watch

Whether it is the Arceau watch series inspired by the equestrian world, or the Clipper watch series inspired by sailing to the sea, Hermès can interpret the true meaning of sports into the art of life.
 
 A Sporting Life!
 
    The highly representative Arceau series re-interprets the essence of equestrian sports with the Arceau Chrono Bridon chronograph watch, presenting five combinations. In addition to the original round case designed by Henri d’ Origny in 1978, asymmetrical stirrup-shaped lugs and italic Arabic numerals, the Arceau Chrono Bridon chronograph watch is especially equipped with a strap strap.
 
    The turned-over leather part of the strap is called the ‘Lead bradoon’ strap. The unique saddle stitching is used to strengthen the close connection between the strap and the lugs, inspired by Mahler. Whether the strap of Arceau Chrono Bridon is sewn from Barenia calf leather full of Hermes history or extremely tough leather, it highlights the brand’s traditional excellent leather craftsmanship. Available in black, natural brown, ebony or dark blue, the strap is a subtle extension of the streamlined case.
 
    The Arceau Chrono Bridon chronograph is equipped with a self-winding chronograph movement that easily captures galloping time on horseback. The central second hand is steadily swept back on the dial. The orange hands are used on the more sporty models, and the blue or stainless steel colors are returned on the more classic models. The Arceau Chrono Bridon watch series, inspired by elegant horses, enriches the mechanical feel of the watch with its equestrian style.
 
 Clipper Sport
 
    The case made of titanium and stainless steel is very interesting; the color of the strap is bright and pleasing; the mechanical movement with automatic winding ensures accurate time running, echoing the rhythm of waves or footprints on the beach. It’s Clipper Sport.
 
    This brand new watch model is an extension of the Clipper collection, with its symbolic bezel inspired by the portholes of 19th century ships. The watch is equipped with three combinations, through the stainless steel caseback and bezel of the bimetal case structure, and the titanium case, the performance of complex and sophisticated materials. The ultra-light titanium performance guarantees outstanding performance in the highly competitive maritime world.
 
    The beautiful Hermes letter H is engraved on the rubber strap. The dial is adorned with oversized Arabic numerals for visual appeal. The triangle in the same color as the second hand indicates the date at 3 o’clock. At night, the dagger-shaped hour and minute hands and the luminous coating hour display ensure clear reading. The counterclockwise rotating bezel, plus the fluorescent hour marker at 12 o’clock, is like an invitation to sail south …
