Hermès H08 Chronograph

Swiss luxury watchmaker Hermès Horloger expands its H08 collection by introducing a new chronograph model.

The Hermès H08 Chronograph features a cushion-shaped case sculpted from a block of multi-layered composite. This high performance material with its unique look is composed of carbon fibre and graphene powder.

By contrast, the satin-finished and polished titanium bezel tops a textured case middle, while the black PVD-coated crown incorporates an orange-rimmed mono-pusher at 3 o’clock. This discreet, intuitive single button serves to activate the chronograph’s start, stop and reset functions by successive presses.

The interplay of materials and finishes highlights the depth of the black dial, itself enlivened by two counters and a cushion-shaped date, and punctuated by black gold hands and luminescent applied numerals and hour-markers. Orange touches accentuate the overall coherence and legibility of these displays.

The watch houses the Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement coupled with a chronograph module. This model is paired with an orange rubber strap featuring a structure reminiscent of Hermès weaves.
