Hermès Clipper Sport

A case offering a playful blend of materials and alternating between titanium and steel; a strap available in a range of bright colours; a self-winding movement keeping step with the passing of time, to the gentle rhythm of dancing waves or footsteps in the sand. Its name is Clipper Sport.
An extension of the Clipper line, this new model features the emblematic bezel inspired by the portholes of the great 19th century sailing ships. Available in three versions, it showcases complex work with materials through a bimetallic case construction featuring the case-back and bezel in steel, and the case-band made of titanium – a material known both for its lightness and for its performance in the world of competitive sailing.
The slim outline of the H for Hermès initial adorns the rubber strap. Large Arabic numerals stand out on the dial, while a triangular marker in the same colour as the centre seconds-hand points to the date. Once night has fallen, the dagger-shaped hands and the superluminova-coated hour dots ensure perfect readability. The counter-clockwise rotating bezel also features a luminescent marker at noon.
