Slim d'Hermès collection was born of a stylistic exercise on the theme of aesthetic purity. This determination to aim for essentials results in lines distinguished by their sobriety, expressed through the slenderness of a case. The broad dial opening immediately draws the gaze, while the design of the lugs forms a right angle. The extreme simplicity of this watch conveys a movement towards essentials in a rigorous, beautifully balanced manner.
Slim d’Hermès, designed by Philippe Delhotal, Creative Director of La Montre Hermès, testifies to the graphic approach of the house through the original typography created by Philippe Apeloig to mark the hours. The light, airy outline of the numerals imparts a lively rhythm that gives time a pleasing cadence.
Slim d’Hermès, for both men and women, comes in three sizes - 39.5 mm, 32 mm and 25 mm - and in rose gold and steel.
The large 39.5 mm-diameter model is equipped with the Manufacture Hermès H1950 ultra-thin movement. The integration of a micro-rotor serves to slim down this self-winding calibre that measures just 2.6 mm. Like the other models from the Manufacture, this movement is adorned with the “sprinkling of Hs” motif and the bridges are hand-bevelled in keeping with watchmaking traditions.
A sapphire crystal case-back affords a glimpse of the details conveying this expertise. On the opaline silvered dial, time is displayed in its simplest expression showing only the hours, minutes and seconds.
The watch is completed with a havana or black alligator strap.
The 39.5 mm-diameter model is also available equipped with a perpetual calendar mechanism.
