The assertively minimalist Arceau collection offers a compellingly subtle aesthetic balance. Amidst curves and curls, the experienced Parisian saddlers’ hour markers lean forward in what can only be described as a canter. Its rounded lugs, recalling stirrups, provide optimum comfort whilst keeping its line slim, matching its delicate blue-tinted hands.2 6
The Heure H is an ode to simplicity: by adopting its own initial for the shape of the case, Hermès highlights its identity – and creates its own wholly exclusive design. The Heure H is deliberately audacious, verging on the cheeky, with its diminutive dial sporting diamonds, mother-of-pearl, or guilloche in restrained yet unabashed elegance.3 6
Secret time; personal time; me time: the famous Hermès Kelly padlock watch encapsulates all these promises and more within it. At once a piece of jewellery, a bracelet, and a watch, this piece eschews convention – to the delight of women who are not averse to doing just that themselves.4 6
The Cape Cod has been ploughing its own furrow, with no clear ancestor or heir, for 25 years now. Its square-in-a-rectangle case is a watchmaking exception – a Hermès design that the firm never fails to refresh with the same respect and simplicity, relinquishing none of its natural, relaxed elegance.5 6
A watch that does not speak its name. The timepiece hides its precious dial beneath a cabochon, and the strap is similarly clad. Originally designed for its dog collar range, since 1993 Medor has been one of Hermès’ showcase collections. Completely off the wall for 25 years!6 6

Hermès is a French family-operated company headquartered in Paris with origins in saddlery and traditional leather processing. The collaboration between Hermès and watchmakers has been in place for more than a century. This longstanding tradition began in 1912. The legendary Parisian Hermès shop at 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré began to sell its own watches for the first time in 1928, featuring clockwork mechanisms from the leading Swiss manufacturers. In 1978, the La Montre Hermès watch production facilities opened in Biel, the centre of Swiss watchmaking expertise. The company opened a leather watch strap factory in 2006 and since then has remained the only watchmaker that produces its own straps as well.
The perfect combination of the Swiss watchmaking tradition and French luxury.
