Hermès Médor

First created in 1993, the Médor watch originated from one of the first objects produced by Hermès alongside the harness: the dog collar. Initially intended for hunting parties, dog collars were adapted to serve as belts during the 1930s. From there it was but a short step from the waists of elegant women to their wrists, which Médor thus adorned in the form of a bracelet. Since one creative idea often leads to another, the leather strap with its iconic “Clous de Paris” pyramid-shaped studs was then transformed into a ‘secret’ watch.

The ingenious and slightly mischievous Médor watch has fun with the passing of time by alternately concealing it under a domed cover or discreetly revealing it. This inspired creation comes in several colourful versions.

Available in two sizes and graced with gold or steel pyramid studs, the Médor watch may be gem-set along its edges or entirely paved with diamonds, further underscoring the precious nature of this jealously safeguarded time.
