The essence of pure formBASELWORLD 2015: The Slim d’Hermès draws on the visual culture
Slim d'Hermès captures the essence of pure form. An elementary sobriety dictates each line, underscored by the thinness of the case and the right angle formed by the lugs. A study in harmony and rigor, Slim d'Hermès draws on the visual culture of Hermès, as witnessed by the original typography of the numerals, designed by Philippe Apeloig.
The 39.5 mm diameter watch measures time to the beat of the Hermès H1950 extra-thin Manufacture movement, and can incorporate a perpetual calendar. This automatic calibre integrates a micro-rotor, thus reducing its height to a mere 2.6 millimetres. Versions measuring 32 or 25 mm in diameter are driven by a quartz movement, and crafted in steel or gold, with or without diamonds.
