 No matter where you are in the world, this well-designed timepiece can simultaneously display the home time and the time in the second time zone, plus a two-color disc that matches the day and night display function, making the function more complete. The watch is made of stainless steel with silver-white or blue dial options, and it is fitted with curved Arabic numerals, which echoes the curvature of the case.

More watch details: Arceau Temps Suspendu

 At the Baselworld 2011, Hermès CEO Luc Perramond grandly launched Hermès new watch: Arceau Temps Suspendu. This unique watch simply presses the button at 9 o’clock to stop the hour and minute hands at noon, pausing the displayed time perfectly, while the time of the internal mechanism continues to maintain the standard time normally. This is also the first watch in the world with two exclusive patent protections.
