Hermès - Slim d’Hermès Quartz Collection

Designed by Philippe Delhotal, Creative Director of La Montre Hermès, the Slim d’Hermès watch collection offers exceptional timepieces for both men and women. Made debut at the Baselworld 2015 watch fair, timepieces from this new watch collection are distinguished by their elementary sobriety, expressed through the slenderness of a case, which is available in three sizes. The broad dial 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.

In addition to automatic models – the Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar & the Slim d’Hermès Petite Seconds – the collection offers a wide choice of quartz powered timepieces. A quartz movement drives the 32 mm and 25 mm models, while new colours enrich the range of alligator straps: blackcurrant, cloud white and sapphire blue, alongside ember, Etruscan, elephant grey and ultraviolet options.
The wristband is also available in box calf, Barenia leather strap or steel bracelet versions. Slim d’Hermès appears in rose gold or steel variations, with or without diamond settings. When adorned in rose gold, the watch is graced with a guilloché dial in white natural mother-of-pearl, while the brand’s ex-libris motif appears on the back of the case.
