Luxury Swiss replica watch brand Montres Hermès introduces Hermès Arceau Tigre, the first timepiece created using the original Email Ombrant (shaded enamel) technique. The method originates from a 175-year-old technique patented by Paul de Bourgoing in Tremblay, a commune in the northeast of Paris. In its turn, Arceau is the most classical of French label’s replica watches. Its asymmetric attachments take their shape from stirrups and its case, designed by Henri d’Origny in 1978, is full of subtle details.
Hermès Arceau Tigre Replica timepiece is limited to 12 pieces and was launched by La Montre Hermes at Baselworld at the beginning of spring. Keeping up with Hermès theme for 2016 “Nature at full gallop”, the great cat featured on the dial of the Arceau Tigre is drawn from an illustration by artist Robert Dallet, who worked with the Maison during the 1980s.
The Email Ombrant technique serves to create pictures that are revealed only when light passes through them. The motif is negative-carved in a mould into which the biscuit porcelain is then poured to form the work itself. Created on a white gold base, the dial of the Arceau Tigre is a masterpiece as the engraver has even reproduced the very shape of the individual hairs composing the coat of the tiger so as to maintain the appearance of the initial sketch. The head of the largest cat species becomes alive by the way in which the light penetrates to create depth effects.
The asymmetrical case of the replica watch features a stirrup-inspired upper attachment and is crafted from white gold. Hermès Arceau Tigre Replica is powered by the in-house mechanical self-winding H1837 movement driving the hours and minutes hands.
