Hermès Clipper 44mm Mechanical Chronograph

In 2010, the Clipper line with its rounded curves forming a shape reminiscent of the portholes on the legendary sailing ships is innovating by adopting a 44 mm case in titanium, a material lighter and more powerful than steel and which is notably used in competitive sailing due to its impressive performances and exceptional resistance.

Inside it beats a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement that is the epitome of reliability and precision. After matt black and daring orange versions, the strap now appears in a warm shade of brown.

Interpreted in various sizes – particularly for small watches intended for dainty feminine wrists – the range has lost nothing of its original elegance. Gem-setting, engraving, rotating bezels and gold studs set the perfect finishing touches to the models in steel, in steel and yellow gold, or in steel and rose gold.
