The Hermes 'Arceau Marqueterie de Paille' watch incorporates some of this fashion house's famous patterns for a luxurious aesthetic that is hard to beat.

The clock face is specifically covered in the label's signature tie fabric that involves chevrons and tiny squares. Nevertheless, these patterns were created using a traditional art and craft form known as straw marquetry. Basically, thin strips of blue and black veneer were used to fashion the stylish face. This is the first time marquetry has been used for watches. The details don't end there, however. The face of the Hermes Arceau Marqueterie de Paille watch is bordered by a 41 mm white gold casing, which beautifully complements the blue alligator strap.
