For 2016, new leathers and new colours expand the line-up that was one of the best newcomers of 2015.
Hermes debuted the Slim d’Hermes collection in 2015 with specially designed numerals distinguishing the dial and an ultra-thin manufacture movement driving things.
The range included a time-teller and a Perpetual Calendar measuring 39.5 mm in diameter,and 32 mm and 25 mm ladies’ models.
New for men are dials in slate grey with a matching elephant grey alligator strap or midnight blue on a matt indigo strap, the straps crafted in Hermes’ own famed leather workshops. The cases are steel.
Power comes from a H1950 ultra-thin movement with a power reserve of 42 hours and it can be admired through a transparent sapphire crystal caseback. It’s notable for a technically complex micro-rotor and finishes including hand-chamfered bridges.
Ladies are now also treated to a 39.5 mm steel-cased version with an ultra-thin movement and alligator straps in vibrant colours – sapphire blue, elephant grey, geranium, cassis or simply black – while jewelled versions carrying 66 white diamonds on the bezel are also on offer.
