Very cool detail on these Hermes watches (yes, a bit of a foo-foo designer brand in some ways, one that I normally don’t follow, but they do have some good watches in their collections).

What material are those blue appliques on the dial made from? How about hand-crafted dyed straw marquetry from an atrisanal farm in France!

I like this idea, I like the execution, I like the design and look, and I like these watches. No idea on price but probably out of my typical range. :-) For more info on the Hermès Arceau Marqueterie de Paille read here by Kyle at
