Hands on with the Hermes Arceau Cavales Equestrian Watches and Arceau Casque Watches
Crafted in stainless steel, there are two versions of this watch with signature Cavales motif on the dial. The version with a white mother-of-pearl dial is offered in multiple sizes: a medium size at 36mm, or a small size at 28mm. Each watch features an inner bezel ring set with Top Wesselton V.V.S. rare white to rare white plus diamonds. The 36mm version is set with 70 diamonds, while the 28mm version boasts 60 diamonds. This unusual setting of an inner bezel ring adds even more shimmer to the “Cavales” motif. The timepiece is outfitted with a Chantilly matt alligator strap.
Additionally, the brand has been inspired by board games and chess pieces, and unveils the Arceau Casque watches in vibrant colors such as electric green, blue, red and lemon-lime. A Swiss quartz movement powers these watches. They offer hours and minutes only, and feature sapphire crystals with anti-reflective treatment to avoid glare. The watches are water resistant to 3 bar. The retail price ranges from $7,550 to $9,100.
