Heure H is adorned with an interchangeable double tour strap featuring a perforated decoration in apricot, vermilion, black or etoupe colours.

A strong and steadfast signature, Heure H – created in 1996 under the impetus of the designer Philippe Mouquet – is more than a watch. It is indeed a symbol, which has maintained its edginess, its dynamism and its freshness over the years, thanks largely to the singular idea of capturing time inside a letter. An amusing way to frame the passing of time.

An object of Hermès’ leather goods expertise, the double tour strap – designed by Martin Margiela for his first fashion show for Hermès in 1998 – fits seamlessly into the case and accentuates its graphic shape. This watch band features a dual nature, with a classic finish between the case lugs and a geometric micro-perforated H pattern on the second loop around the wrist. To achieve a transparent effect, a wafer-thin sliver of Beton leather is inserted between the two strap sections.

Crafted by Hermès Horloger artisans, the Heure H watch case is available in two versions. The first, made of steel, is adorned with an apricot or vermillion strap, while the second rose gold-plated variation comes with a black or etoupe strap. The white lacquered dial, punctuated by four Arabic numerals and metallic hands, strikes a pleasing contrast with the strap colours. The overall result is a perfect match between rigorous stylistic and technical disciplines, highlighted by the precision of a deft and expert touch.
