Hermès’ brand new watch collection, the Slim d’Hermès, is designed by Philippe Delhotal, Creative Director of La Montre Hermès. This new collection boasts a stylistic exercise on the theme of aesthetic purity.. This determination to aim for essentials results in lines distinguished by their elementary sobriety, expressed through the slenderness of a case. The broad dial of these timepieces opening immediately draws the gaze, while the design of the lugs forms a right angle. The extreme simplicity of this watch conveys a movement towards essentials in a rigorous, beautifully balanced manner. This collection testifies to the graphic approach of the house through the original typography created by Philippe Apeloig to mark the hours. The light, airy outline of the numerals imparts a lively rhythm that gives time a pleasing cadence.
Highlight of this collection is the Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar perpetual calendar, a 39.5 mm-diameter model equipped with a perpetual calendar mechanism, one of the most demanding horological complications. This function, which counts off the days and months while taking account of leap years and thus provides a four-year display, is associated with a moon-phase indication in natural white mother-of-pearl set against an aventurine glass sky, as well as a dual-time display in an ultra-thin composition.
