Slim d’Hermès cultivates a sense of opposites along with pared-down purity. Its supremely understated lines stem from rigorous stylistic research. Its slender silhouette, broad dial opening and the aesthetic details of its lugs: everything about this design accentuates its quintessential nature. Its strength also lies in the original font of its numerals, created like a musical score by graphic designer Philippe Apeloig. This eminently pure and meticulously thought-out script is distinguished by finely traced lines interspersed with ‘silent’ spaces, setting a lively cadence for the passing of time.
This subtly balanced paradox is also apparent in the two new dial variations featuring opaque black lacquer or translucent magnolia white. Crafted in the Hermès watchmaking workshops and available as small and very small models, the Slim d’Hermès watch reveals itself exactly as it was first conceived: with utter simplicity. Hermès creates objects. Objects shaped by the hands of artisans to make them true companions for those who wear them. Practical, functional and stemming from uncompromising expertise, they radiate the lightness of the unexpected. They make everyday life their playground, and each instant a uniquely special moment. For Hermès, time is also an object. Its inherent tension is translated by the house into a singular characteristic.
