Hermes Cape Cod Tonneau “Snow Setting” Limited Edition

This exceptional timepiece from Hermes is beautified with a unique gem-setting called snow setting. The principle consists of selecting diamonds rigorously and merging them into the material side by side and playing on their complementary natures and their varying diameters.

160 hours of work went into creating this exceptional piece of jewellery composed of 1,242 “full-cut” diamonds: 449 for the dial, 750 for the case, 42 for the buckle and a cabochon for the crown, totalling 8.33 carats. The Cape Cod Tonneau “snow setting” is available in a limited and numbered edition of 24 pieces.
