Hermes launches a new version of Slim d'Hermes in platinum
January 17, 2017: As is true with every Hermes creation, the maison ensures beauty with functionality. The new version of Slim d’Hermès is no exception.
The simplicity of the all-blue Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Platine immediately draws an appreciative gaze. The numerals stand out with light and airy grace. While the date, month, dual-time and leap-year indications are displayed on various counters, a mother-of-pearl moon phase graces an aventurine sky backdrop at 3 o’clock. The sparkle is minimalist, adding that touch of glamour to an efficient timepiece. The elegant dial melts seamlessly into the surrounding platinum case.
The remarkably technical ultra-thin Manufacture H1950 movement is equipped with a perpetual calendar. This authentic ‘mechanical memory’ ensures that the date of months with 30 and 31 days is automatically adjusted, while taking account of leap years by indicating February 29th every four years without any need for corrections. Adorned with a ‘sprinkling of Hs’ and meticulously hand-bevelled, the movement also powers day/night, dual-time and moon-phase indications within a composition measuring just 4 mm thick. This ‘engine’ can be viewed through the sapphire crystal case-back.
The Abyss blue alligator strap reflects impeccable leather craftsmanship and sets the perfect finishing touch.
