Designed to suit the lifestyle of modern-day men, HERMÈS H08 watch features a circular dial housed in a case featuring softened edges, as if merging angles and curves. Through its enigmatic name, the Hermès H08 watch offers a nod to graphics, mathematics and metaphysics.

The original font of its numerals chimes with the object itself, featuring a 0 and an 8 recalling the shape of the case. Moreover, the figure 0 epitomises emptiness, while the horizontally titled number 8 symbolises infinity.

For Only Watch 2021, the Hermès H08 watch is unveiled in two interpretations, combining its mineral materials and deep colours with a hint of orange. Powered by the Manufacture Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement, the Hermès H08 Only Watch edition is presented in a cushion-shaped case.

The first interpretation, in titanium, is topped by a PVD-treated bezel. Its black gold dial is punctuated by orange Arabic numerals matching the watch-crystal seal, the caseback and the minutes track, while its black nickel-plated hands indicate the hours, minutes, central seconds, as well as the date between 4 and 5 o’clock. A titanium bracelet completes this understated and dynamic ensemble.

The second version features a PVD-treated titanium case and an orange rubber strap, which highlights the caseback, the watch crystal seal and the minutes track. In addition to its resistance and comfort, the rubber strap is as sporty as it is sophisticated.
