The Arceau watch has taken countless forms since its creation in 1978, without ever departing from its round dial and distinctive font. Its latest interpretation, the Chrono Titane in titanium, is no exception.

Equipped with a chronograph function and a 41 mm beadblasted titanium case, this sportier version radiates an appealingly light air. Its sloping numerals give the impression of having been blown in on a playful breeze. The three counters and the date are harmoniously arranged. Aesthetic characteristics inspired by saddlemaking are showcased on both models, fitted with a natural Barenia calfskin strap, or with a black embossed Barenia calfskin strap, on which the saddle stitching and inimitable feel testify to the tradition of leathermaking excellence cultivated by the Maison.

Above and beyond purely equestrian design codes, the Arceau Chrono Titane asserts a fine balance between sturdiness and airy lightness.
