One of the maisons that certainly stands out from the crowd is Hermès. Of course, this classic French brand still earns most of its money with timeless quartz watches that are very popular among the ladies. But with watches like the ‘Arceau L’Heure de la Lune’ they prove to be capable of much, much more, once again.

The concept of this watch consists of two smaller dials, rotating opposite from each other. One dial for the time and one for the date. By rotating like this, these small dials overlap two detailed moons and thus indicate the moon phase on both the Northern and the Southern hemisphere. This is very spectacular, also because the moons are placed against a backdrop of meteorite or aventurine. The price of this piece of art is 23,000 euros.

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
