Hermès uses the delicate art of invisible setting to adorn the pyramids of a watch with a mantle of baguette-cut diamonds, stemming from hand craftsmanship combining traditional techniques with cutting-edge technologies.
For the very first time, Médor Serti Baguette by Hermès conceals its watchmaking soul beneath the sparkle of trapeze-cut diamonds. This “secret” watch tells the time only when its pyramid-shaped cover pivots to one side at a press on an invisible push-button. Created in 1993, the watch is inspired by the dog collars that Hermès already used to make in its early days, alongside its harnesses for horses. In this version, it appears clothed in a highly original gemstone mantle that called for a wealth of engineering and expertise.
In addition to the diamonds adorning the three pyramids and the pin buckle, Médor Serti Baguette also features these gemstones at its very heart, since the dial is adorned with an invisible-set rosette motif.
Médor Serti Baguette flaunts 656 diamonds including a Ceylon-cut diamond set on the crown, making a grand total of 17.8 carats. Housed in the square white gold case, a quartz calibre drives the hours and minutes hands. The smooth sapphire blue or geranium alligator strap is hand-crafted.
