Slim d’Hermes is an aesthetic art-themed line, featuring simple design, original hour markers and urban style. Hermes Group pays tribute to hardness, leather goods and enamel watches by Hermes with Slim d’Hermes Collection. Philippe Delhotal, directer of Hermes watchmaking, said that it was an epochal collection showing essence of the brand. The balanced combination of art design and watchmaking crafts creates extreme, pure beauty of Slim d’Hermes Collection. Hermes Slim d’Hermes Perpetual Calendar Platinum was unveiled at Baselworld 2017. With dominant tone of navy blue, it highlighted slim and simple, elegant and practical style.
Original Hour Markers
It’s the first time for Philippe Apeloig to design hour markers for wristwatches by Hermes. Mr. Apeloig’s design for the hour markers started with basic elements of numbers as if musicians create a symphony from musical notation and seven notes. He wanted to design concise but classic numeral hour markers like a classic melody. Finally, he did it. Concise hour markers fully meet the demands of time display: geometric design, airy image. Disconnected parts of numeral hour markers represent a brief pause arranging cleverly rhythms of time.
Hermes Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar Platinum, simple but elegant, drew people’s attention at Baselworld 2017. The outer ring and the central dial present different blue colors. The outer ring is printed with Arabic numeral hour markers by Philippe Apeloig. There are five functional sub-dials on the central dial. The second time zone displays at 6 O’clock, and the round aperture above tells the day and the night of the second time zone. Month and date display at 9/12 O’clock. Mother-of-pearl moon and starry sky hang on the half of the sub-dial at 3 O’clock. The blue dial looks more elegant against platinum watch case.
In-house Ultra-slim Movement
Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar Platinum is equipped with H1950, in-house ultra-slim mechanical movement with self winding, at 2.6mm thick. Decorative “H” grain is visual through sapphire back. The chamfer baseplate and the mini rotor show good craftsmanship. It has 42-hour power reserve. What’s more, the reliable mechanical memory device guarantees automatic date display around the year.
Ocean Blue Alligator-skin Bracelet
Precious metal, perpetual calendar, the second time zone and moon phase are integrated into Hermes Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar blue dial watch. It shows exquisite craftsmanship on dial making and further development on in-house mechanical movements. As the saying goes: Strong horse with strong saddle. Ocean blue alligator-skin bracelet makes the complicate wristwatch better. It’s well known that Hermes does well in leather goods. The alligator-skin bracelet combining exquisite crafts, perfect details and supreme wearing experience tells us what luxury is.
