The Next Hour Neuchâtel
Fbg de l’Hôpital 78
2000 Neuchâtel

In shades of blue or grey, new Arceau Soleil, with sunray engraved dial and levitating diamonds, steel case (36 mm) set with 100 diamonds (0.34 ct), quartz movement.

Created by Henri d’Origny in 1978, the round Arceau watch with its stirrup inspired lugs lends its singular aesthetic to a new stylistic expression. Imagined by Swiss artist Fred Rawyler for a silk scarf, a gleaming graphic design – reinterpreted to create fascinating depth and effects of light – brings sunshine to the dial of the aptly named new Arceau Soleil.

Sunbeams radiating across a subtle chiaroscuro gradient accentuate the path of the slender hands, in an endlessly mesmerising geometry. The diamond hour markers, set into the sapphire crystal, create the illusion of levitating above the dial, while a translucent lacquer in shades of blue or grey swathes the engraved motif in an aura of mystery.

The exquisitely light gem-set steel case of this elegant watch is paired with an alligator strap.

Price: 7,710 USD
