To support Only Watch charity event, Hermès has created a unique Slim d’Hermès L’heure impatiente timepiece. This mechanical wristwatch features the playful and quirky ‘Impatient Hour’ complication that 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. This complication that stirs our feelings and heightens our sense of pleasurable expectation is an exquisite torture that culminates when the note rings out. The striking mechanism has been designed to ensure a lasting, velvety-smooth sound that is also delightfully modulated for the wearer’s ears only.
