Hermès “The Slim d’Hermès” Timepieces





The numerals on the dial of the Slim d’Hermès are a meeting of Art Deco or the Jazz Age and the digital age, devised for Hermès by the graphic designer Philippe Apeloig. And what distinguishes them is what is missing. Slim d’Hermès comes in several versions: time-only with a 39.5mm case and 7.64mm thick, in rose gold (£11,400/$18,500), and in stainless steel (£5,100/$8,500). The perpetual calendar version (9.04mm thick) is available only in rose gold (£24,200/$38,900).

Hermès “Arceau Marqueterie de Paille” Watch

Hermès honours the ancient art of straw marquetry, a form of expertise that has become extremely rare, with these two beautifully dialed watches. Marquetry (also spelled as marqueterie) is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures. Presented for the first time on a watch dial, the Hermès Arceau Marqueterie de Paille (literally, “marquetry of straw”) watches reflect a highly complex miniaturisation of the marquetry technique. The blue and black motifs depict two iconic Hermès tie patterns featuring chevrons and tiny squares. The rye straw used in these models is produced by only one farm in France
