Following the announcement of the Grand Arceau Moon Phase watch to hit the shelves later this year, the renowned French luxury fashion house Hermès has now come up with the Arceau Pocket Promenade de Longchamp watch, thereby continuing its trend of reviving age-old fashion.
Whether you carry this pocket watch inside a jacket or your trouser pocket, it heightens the instinctive class of the Arceau wristwatch originally imagined by Henri d’Origny in 1978. The Hermès pocket watch for 2011 comes with a new dial made of a block of natural mother-of-pearl.
