Introducing the Hermès Slim d’Hermès Email Grand Feu
The Slim d’Hermès was unveiled in 2015 and has been a great success, especially among those who love minimalist timepieces and simple watchmaking. Its power of seduction lies in the uncrowded dial, slender font by designer Philippe Apeloig and slim case.
To coincide with Baselworld 2016, Hermès has put a more classical and “fine watch” spin on the model. The Parisian brand has coated the low-key dial in Grand Feu enamel for a velvety, intense and shiny white effect on three levels (hour ring, minute display and small seconds at 6). The features are all in black enamel, from the Arabic hour numerals and minute track to the seconds.
Three baton-shape rose gold hands glide over the enamel surface to track the central hours, minutes and seconds. They are brought to life by the super-slim H1950 calibre in the 39.5mm rose gold case with a 42-hour power reserve.
