Hermès – Cape Cod, style all sewn up

In two-tone leather, single or double tour, or as a cuff for the well-groomed action man, the Cape Cod for men has style all wrapped up, including with colourful dials.

Blue, anthracite or black: the Cape Cod dial appears in new shades that are echoed in an indigo blue, graphite matt or black matt alligator strap. At the heart of these subtle visual orchestrations, time is steadily marked off to the rhythm of a watch mechanism created by Hermès: the Manufacture H1912 movement. This year, the dials are also attired in lacquer, as Cape Cod sets the stage for subtly graded shades of red and brown, creating reflections that shimmer delicately across the surface.

From cutting to the final burnishing, as well as the famous “saddle stitching”, the same meticulous operations are tirelessly repeated in the Hermès workshops. This hand-crafted expertise enables the Maison to offer unusual approaches: a wristband formed from a traditional strap merged into a cuff strap and made in alligator or Barénia calfskin; or a two-tone smooth calfskin strap combining Malta blue with Hermès red or étoupe. Encapsulating a vision of time threaded with elegance and originality, Cape Cod continues to distil its singular style, inspired as ever by the anchor-chain link.
