Visit different corners of my city and taste essence of urban life! Ramble in the street, and feel every wonderful moment! Hermes Slim d’Hermès has captured a great number of minimalists with delicacy, elegance and simpleness since it hit the market in 2015, a perfect choice in the daily use. The new model with GMT is the best partner on the journey. From Paris to New York, from Buenos Aires to Bombay, Slim d’Hermès GMT travels around the world. It tells you the truth of time, sheer beauty of time.
It’s necessary to own Hermes Slim d’Hermès GMT in the daily life. It bears artistic aesthetics, harmonious design and practical functions, featuring original number hour markers by Philippe Apeloig. What’s more, refined details are worth appreciating. It’s limited to 90 pieces across the world. 9.84mm-thick watch case in light-weight and rare palladium comes with matte black crocodile skin bracelet, and modern, simple and high end temperament stands out.
The entire dial is divided into two parts, the outer ring and the inner dial. Sunburst outer ring in stale gray is printed on white original Arabic number hour markers by Philippe Apeloig. The date sub-dial displays at 6 O’clock, and it reminds me of vinyl records. The second time-zone sub-dial at 10 O’clock is bigger than the sub-dial at 6 O’clock. White sand-blast surface looks high end. Arabic number hour markers on it look littery but regular, and the blued-steel hand is eye-catching. There are two day&night indicators at 2 O’clock. “L” refers to local time, and “H” means home time. White light refers to day, and blue light means night. “HERMES PARIS” at 3 O’clock symbolizes brand image and high reputation.
Thanks to H1950, slim self-winding mechanical movement by Vaucher with 1.4mm-thick GMT module, Hermes Travel Watch Slim d’Hermès GMT has excellent performance. Vaucher, an old and famous mechanical clock manufacturer, revived in 2003, short of VMF. It not only manufactures movements but researches modules. Though it is young, it finds its place in the movement-manufacturing field. In 2006, Hermes spent CHF 25,000,000 on 25% stock acquisition of Vaucher. Therefore, H1950 is an in-house movement. Besides basic functions, the caliber with a micro rotor makes users read home time and local time easily. It’s easy to adjust the destination time by operating the pusher at 10 O’clock. Like all in-house movements, H1950 is decorated on “H” logo symbolizing brand image, visible through sapphire crystal. Hermes is good at crocodile skin bracelet, and it brings users luxury wearing experience. Public price of Hermes Slim d’Hermès GMT is 14,700 dollars. It seems a little expensive. Will you collect one?
