“H” is the eighth letter in the alphabet, but it ranks the first place in many people’s hearts because it is the abbreviated letter of Hermes. It symbolizes Hermes’s family honor. “H” has supplied a lot of inspirations for six generations of Hermes family and designers. It was decorated in Hermes purse, belts and shoes first. To 1996, it was designed for Hermes Heure H wristwtch by Philippe Mouquet. “H” has been an iconic element of watch design since then. New models every year pay tribute to originality and unique style of Hermes Heure H.
The First Hermes Heure H
A finished product reflects designs’ concept. In general, designs spend much time and much energy on a successful work. Today’s Hermes Iconic Heure H made Philippe Mouquet take great pains in 1996. Philippe Mouquet planed to design a wristwatch combining the iconic letter “H” and a wristwatch. How to design a distinctive work? It’s a test for Philippe Mouquet, even every designer. In the end, he obtained a inspiration from Magritte’s painting l‘explication. In the painting, there are a bottle, a carrot and a strange item. The most arresting is the image whose upper half is carrot and whose other half is bottle. Inspired by the image, he kept his attention focused on square watch case and “H”. To use “H” to the square wristwatch he imagined, lugs were designed according to the upper part and the latter part of “H”. Finally, he did it. I think he is a great designer. He also designed a lot of famous and popular products.
Hermes Heure H Double Jeu
Hermes Heure H Double Jeu is loyal to the original model, featuring the iconic “H” and contrasting diamonds. It includes two types of dials, “H” bezel set with full diamonds and the second half of the dial and the bezel inlaid with diamonds. Each version is available in black or white Barénia calfskin strap. I am surprised at diamond design, and I am attracted by the square lacquer dial, diamonds and cozy, durable Barénia bracelet. Diamonds are the best friends of ladies. All girls will be addicted to diamonds decoration. “H” bezel is set with full 122 pieces of diamonds weighting 0.26 carats, and 231 pieces of diamonds on the half dial and the half bezel weight totally 0.5 carats. The designs fit urban ladies more.
