Hermès H08 watch

Unveiled at the Watches and Wonders 2021 digital event, the Hermès H08 watch is firmly embedded in the men’s universe of the house that Véronique Nichanian has been shaping over the past three decades. At once serious and sensual, robust and delicate, matt and glossy, it is defined by its inherently varied, multi-facetted nature.

Its sporting-inspired design mingles taut and flowing lines, its circular dial framed by a case with softened edges, as if angles and curves were merging into a seamless whole. It appears bedecked in mineral materials and tones, with black, grey and anthracite quite naturally rubbing shoulders with blue and orange.

The enigmatic name of the Hermès H08 watch hints at graphics, mathematics and metaphysics. The distinctively original font of the numerals chimes with the object, including a 0 and an 8 whose forms evoke that of the case. The 0 numeral embodies emptiness, while the horizontal figure 8 symbolises infinity.

Beating to the rhythm of the mechanical self-winding Manufacture Hermès H1837 movement, the new Hermès H08 line offers three large cushion-shaped models with a screw-down crown.

The first features a graphene-filled composite case, topped by a satin-brushed and polished ceramic bezel. Its black gold-coated dial is punctuated by a minutes track, luminescent Arabic numerals, and black nickel-coated hands displaying the hours, minutes, central seconds, and date at half past four. It is paired with a black rubber strap secured by a titanium butterfly clasp.

Two other variants – the first in matt black DLC-coated titanium and the second in satin-brushed titanium – frame a black nickel-coated dial and are teamed with a blue or black webbing band, or a black or orange rubber strap.

In addition to its toughness and comfort, the woven strap specially developed for the Hermès H08 watch epitomises a style that is as sporty as it is sophisticated, entirely consistent with the world of Hermès menswear.
