In collaboration with Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier, the watch brand Hermes has released an extraordinary timepiece, christened Cape Cod Moon Phases. This enchanting watch is proposed in an individually-numbered edition, strictly limited to 170 pieces per series.
The undeniable highlight of the new Hermes watch is its moon phase indication, offered with the astronomical accuracy of over a period of 122 years and 46 days. This remarkable function compliments those of displaying hours, minutes, seconds as well as retrograde date.
At the heart of this horological marvel is beating a self-winding movement - Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier H 1929 calibre. It incorporates a 916 pink gold rotor and two barrels, which assure a power reserve of 55 hours. The mechanism incorporates 306 individual parts and 32 rubies.
This reliable caliber is enclosed in an appealing case, crafted in pink or white gold. Both front and back sides of the Hermes watch are protected by an anti-glare sapphire crystal.
The Hermes Cape Cod Moon Phases watch boasts an opaline dial, completed with gold applied hour-markers.
The Hermes watch is coupled with a gold, black or tobacco-brown alligator leather strap. It can be also accessorized with a black or natural barenia calfskin strap. Both versions terminate in a gold folding clasp, equipped with a safety mechanism.
