HERMÈS – Slim d’Hermès Perspective Cavalière

This 2D design technique has been around since the 16th century and was used by military mapmakers. The Parisian brand has used this very technique on one of its famous silk scarves called “Perspective Cavalière” which is closely bound to the horse riding world. The same pattern has moved from the neck to the wrist and its bold, colourful shapes adorn the white gold and champlevé enamelled dial on the Slim model, the latest from the Hermès watch collections. Four combinations of vibrant hues (Klein blue, indigo, navy and turquoise, scarlet, burgundy and aubergine, pink, peach, grey, yellow, black and white) are each limited to 6 numbered pieces. The dials form architectural letters above which two silver hour and minute hands glide. Hermès’ own ultra-thin self-winding H1950 calibre brings the time functions to life from inside the 39.5mm white gold case. Price: 75,000 CHF
