When somebody asks you for the time, do you reach for your cell phone? Stop. Just stop. It’s way more stylish, especially now, to look to your wrist.
We’re trying to make it easy for your to do the chic time check with an exclusive Hermès Watch Event for the next few weeks with 0ver 40% off like-new offerings.
We saw first hand last fall how these timepieces are meticulously assembled by hand at the Festival des Métiers in New York.
Each style translates the striking design that Hermès is known for and adds the technology of precision watchmaking. You’ll find the same leathers and luxurious details you’d expect from the French design huse.
Here’s a guide to some of Hermès watches styles:
H Hour: It’s hard to miss that emblematic “H” for Hermès. Since 1996, this minimalist graphic approach is balanced with a simple sundial-like dial.
Cape Cod: A solitary anchor chain inspired this homage to the peninsula of Cape Cod. Henri d’Origny created this watch in 1991 with the coastline on his mind.
Arceau: Designed in 1978 by Henri d’Origny, it is distinguished by its upper horseshoe-shaped attachment and the slanting numerals across the dial.
Médor: The Médor, designed by Philippe Mouquet. Functioning as both timepiece and bracelet, it is decorated by three stainless steel studs, one of which pops open to reveal the dial. This watch also has a secret compartment inspired by the collar of a boar-hunting dog, making it a unique, multi-faceted piece.
