HERMÈS – Cape Cod TGM Automatique

Cape Cod is a long and pretty peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. It is a 3382km² strip of land, dunes and beaches swept by the wind and whipped by the sea swell on the East Coast of America. But that’s not all. Cape Cod is also the name of a watch collection by Hermès and this large model (TGM) is part of it. Its 33x33mm steel case (excluding lugs) is inspired by the Parisian brand’s famous Chaîne d’Ancre toggle bracelet. It houses the self-winding H1912 calibre which brings to life the time and date functions alongside a 50-hour power reserve. The off-white dial features an hour rim and black minute track echoing the square shape of the case. Rhodium-plated Arabic numerals break up the straight lines with their curves. Three rhodium-plated hands in the centre track the hours, minutes and seconds whilst the date display lies at 6 o’ clock. Price: 5,200 CHF
