Hermès Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel

Hermès presents a new titanium Slim d’Hermès perpetual calendar watch. Featuring a slender case, it incorporates a much appreciated horological mechanism.

The ultra-thin Manufacture H1950 with perpetual calendar complication ensures that the date of months with 30 and 31 days is automatically adjusted, while taking account of leap years by indicating February 29th every four years without any need for corrections.

Adorned with a ‘sprinkling of Hs’ and meticulously hand-bevelled, the movement also powers day/ night, dual-time and moon-phase indications within a composition measuring just 4 mm thick. This intricate self-winding mechanical calibre may be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.

The numerals with their font specially designed by Philippe Apeloig stand out with light and airy grace. While the date, month, dual-time and leap year indications are displayed on various counters, a mother-of-pearl moon phase graces an aventurine sky backdrop at 3 o’clock. The elegant and graphic dial perfectly harmonizes with the rose gold and titanium or titanium and platinum case.
