Hermès New Kelly watch

Created in 1975, the Hermès Kelly watch was inspired by the padlock shape from the iconic handbag designed by Robert Dumas in the 1930s.

Now, Hermès presents new versions of the iconic Kelly watch. This sparkling and mischievous jewellery timepiece flaunts its clean-cut design and reaffirms its stylistic freedom and wearability. This energetic nature is reflected in the lines of the case as well as the new gold or steel bracelet encircling the wrist.

Kelly watch can be used as a sautoir necklace by slipping into a black boxcalf or smooth alligator clochette secured to a leather cordlet, all crafted in accordance with Hermès leather craftsmanship skills.

There are five possible interpretations: in steel, in rose gold, with or without diamond setting and featuring a mother-of-pearl or spangled white-lacquered dial.
