Hermès expands their Slim d’Hermès collection by presenting a new rose gold timepiece equipped with GMT function.
Introduced in 2012, the Slim d’Hermès line embodies essentials: simplicity imbued with rigorous discipline and aesthetic balance, the unmistakable signature of the collection. The slender curves of the case middle, the right-angled curves, the original numeral font designed by Philippe Apeloig.
Made from rose gold, the Slim d’Hermès GMT watch is an ideal companion for today’s globetrotter. Its elegant and ultra-thin 9.48 mm thick case made from rose gold reveals its pure display beneath an enigmatic smoked crystal veil.
The broad blue dial with its distinctive font – slim numerals with spaces between them – is adorned with subtle finishing that accentuates its intensity. A sunburst chapter ring, snailed centre and date counter, along with a grained silver-toned GMT counter studded with numerals punctuate this perfectly legible Manufacture dial swept over by slender sandblasted gilded baton-type hands.
The new Slim d’Hermès GMT is equipped with the ultrathin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement measuring just 2.6 mm thick, combined with the 1.4 mm of the ultra-thin GMT module exclusively developed by Agenhor for Hermès. In addition to the hours, minutes and date function, this mechanical self-winding composition equipped with a microrotor drives a dual-time reading complete with two day/ night indicators for home time and travel time.
The time in a given destination is simply and playfully adjusted via a dedicated pushbutton. The movement bridges, hand-chamfered and adorned with the ‘sprinkling of Hs’ motif, along with those of the module featuring Côtes de Genève and circular graining, can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.
The watch is worn on a matt abyss blue alligator strap, crafted in the Hermès leather workshops.
