HERMÈS – Slim d’Hermès La femme aux semelles de vent

Incorporating traditional artistic techniques and mechanical watch making, the Slim d’Hermès La femme aux semelles de vent timepiece houses a Porcelain dial from the French Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres. A representation of the “La femme aux semelles de vent” (the woman with soles of wind) motif first used in an Hermès carré, using a traditional Japanese technique of miniature painting in various shades of red, called Aka-e. Produced in a limited edition of 12 pieces, the Slim d’Hermès La femme aux semelles de vent timepiece beats to the rhythm of an Ultra-thin Hermès Manufacture movement with automatic winding.
