La Montre Hermès hosted 'Of Mastery and Time', a special horological exhibition at The Dubai Mall.The exhibition displayed some of the Maison's exceptional timepieces within a unique setting that played with time and offered visitors a captivating insight into Hermès' savoir faire in Haute Horlogerie.

On display 
was the Arceau Lift, the first Hermès flying tourbillon watch, inspired by the historical premises of Hermès at 24, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris.The double H topping the tourbillon carriage and the barrel bridge of the Arceau Lift reproduced one of the emblematic motifs featured in the interior design of the boutique, above the door of the Lift after which it was named.Limited to 176 pieces, the watch was driven by Calibre H1923 visible from the dial side and was also revealed through an opening carved out in the back of the gold case.

'Of Mastery and Time' also featured the Pendentif Boule, the Heure H with baguette diamonds and the Cape Cod in gold also set with baguette diamonds, amongst others.The exceptional timepieces were inspired by the imagination of the Hermès universe, embodying a unique level of artisanal innovation and the know-how of the Maison in creating high quality objects.
