The Slim d’Hermès L’heure impatiente is endowed with a complication that invites us to look forward to an upcoming moment. The effervescence of the wait is entirely summed up in a module measuring just 2.2 mm thick, powered by the Manufacture Hermès H1912 movement.
The jubilant ritual consists of setting the counter of the watch to the time of the eagerly awaited event that will take place in less than 12 hours. An hour before it occurs, the mechanical hourglass is set in motion and its progress can be followed at 6 o’clock on the dial.
