Since its launch in 2007, the Antarès with interchangeable strap has become one of Michel Herbelins fastest selling designs. This season sees a new version with a new lyre-shaped case. Featuring the same ingenious system as its forerunners, this watch lets the wearer change the strap for themselves.
A jewel of a watch
A departure from the existing round and rectangular shaped watches, this new design is inspired by classical Greek architecture. Its curved case in stainless steel is delicately fluted like the columns of Antiquity, extending into chiseled lugs that unify the whole in a pleasingly flowing aesthetic. The case – finished with a crown topped with a black onyx – showcases the dial and its distinctively generous dimensions. There are three lovely dial designs to choose from: pure and simple real white mother-of-pearl, sophisticated matte black “velvet” studded with diamonds, or timeless Roman numerals against a silvered background with a sun ray centre.
Freedom of style
A timepiece of everlasting style, it keeps up with changing trends thanks to its easy and practical system of interchangeable straps. Since “it’s a lady’s prerogative to change her mind”, Michel Herbelin offers a broad palette of colourways (no less than 30) and materials, in a single or double wrap style, to swap in seconds according to your mood. Just slide the strap between the lugs of the case, clip it, and you’re good to go!
