Hermès Clipper (New Models – 2015)

In 2010, the Hermès Clipper line with its rounded curves forming a shape reminiscent of the portholes on the legendary sailing ships is innovating by adopting a 44 mm case in titanium, a material lighter and more powerful than steel and which is notably used in competitive sailing due to its impressive performances and exceptional resistance.
Inside it beats a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement that is the epitomeof reliability and precision, faithfully marking off time and perhaps enabling the wearer to suspend its relentless flight. After matt black and daring orange versions, the strap now appears in a warm shade of brown. Interpreted in various sizes – particularly for small watches intended for dainty feminine wrists – the range has lost nothing of its original elegance. Gem-setting, engraving, rotating bezels and gold studs set the perfect finishing touches to the models in steel, in steel and yellow gold, or in steel and rose gold.
