Slim D’Hermès inspires a cadence based on pure, restrained lines. From the design of the case to the outline of the numerals, the collection sets the pace for a return to the quintessence of the watchmaking art. The Manufacture collection now welcomes models paying tribute to the saddlery and leather-crafting expertise of the Maison.
The collection was born from encounters between the Maison, designers and artisans. The singular blend of contemporary and classic elegance embodied in Slim d’Hermès expresses the essence of Hermès.
Graphic arts and horological skills meet and mingle in perfect harmony in a quest for aesthetic purity. The in-house expertise is expressed through the dial, the case and the ultra-thin Manufacture calibre. The exceptionally understated lines are accentuated by the slenderness of the case, while the design of the lugs forms a right angle. Their momentum extends to the spring bars around which the strap appears to coil. The result is the epitome of extreme simplicity, striking the balance between rigorous discipline and visual equilibrium.
Slim d’Hermès draws the typographic essence of a watch line. This font, with its light and understated rhythm, is generously revealed on a broad dial opening. The outline of the numerals respects the natural function of a watch – ensuring the legibility of time – it’s free of any superfluous elements. Designed like geometrical shapes, the hour-markers are drawn in a single stroke, without any counterweights on the ends. The simple and elegant dial surface comprises three different levels: a first circle for the chapter ring, a second central disc, and finally a small seconds sub-dial.
