Hermès Faubourg Manchette

The Faubourg watch launched in 2014 becomes an all leather-clad Manchette or cuff watch. In a nod to the origins of Hermès as a saddle- and harness-maker, its miniature case appears dressed in the finest leathers, available in a wide range of colours.
When teamed with the rose gold version, the cuff strap is crafted from havana, agate red, black, ultraviolet, geranium or elephant grey alligator. When paired with steel, it opts for calf in a natural Barénia version or deeper shades of electric blue, iris, orange or red.
Available in such tangy or more classic colour versions, the leather strap is fashioned all of a piece like an extension of the case so as to flow seamlessly around the wrist. The signature of this cuff watch that fits like a second skin, the iconic Hermès saddle stitching accentuates the pure lines of the object.
