Hermès ARCEAU Chrono Titane

Equipped with a chronograph function and a 41 mm bead-blasted titanium case, this sportier version of the Hermès ARCEAU timepiece radiates an appealingly light air. Its sloping numerals give the impression of having been blown in on a playful breeze. The three counters and the date are harmoniously arranged.
Aesthetic characteristics inspired by saddle-making are showcased on both models, fitted with a natural Barenia calfskin strap, or with a black embossed Barenia calfskin strap, on which the saddle stitching and inimitable feel testify to the tradition of leather making excellence cultivated by the Maison.
