by YannickWN "The unchallenged queen of the Hermès watch collections since the late 1970s, the Arceau watch, created by the Parisian firm’s star designer Henry d’Origny, is one of the rare timepieces that can be instantly recognised on the wrist."

There are Breguet numerals, and there are Bre-ghey numerals. This one has the latter, especially on the date wheel. If it didn't have a date, and it had proper Breguet numerals instead of the Bre-ghey ones, it would really be one nice watch.

I like the font and Hermes watches are really well made and amazingly well priced when you consider a shoe lace goes for $100.

The Hermessence Fragrance line has been run by Jean Claude Ellena for the past decade, perhaps the greatest perfumer of our time. We met in Singapore where he selected some very rare oils that my old company distills. Pretty manly post on my part.
