Hermes Carre H Watch - Extremely Contemporary Design

Aug 13, 2010
Luxury watch collectors will be pleased to find out that Hermes is presenting its new limited edition wristwatch - the Hermes Carre H watch. To create the avant-garde piece, Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director of the brand, has joined efforts p with well-known French architect and designer Marc Berthier.

The slightly curved case is of a gunmetal shade and measures 36.5mm in diameter. It is crafted from microbead blasted titanium featuring polished upper surface. The square with rounded corners shape of the case is really appealing.

The case is coupled with a Black Barenia calfskin strap fitted with a matching titanium pin buckle. The case construction is water-resistant to 30 meters.

The anthracite dial is completed with baton-shaped hour-markers that are of the same width as the hands. An original detail is a small seconds sub-dial at 6 oclock. The face of the watch, as well as its back side, is shielded by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.

The heart of the new Hermes watch is the Swiss automatic Girard-Perregaux caliber GP3200 movement that offers a 44-hour power reserve. The movement belongs to Sowind, a highly-respected Swiss manufacturer in the Jura region. The 32-jewel movement oscillates at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The oscillating weight and the bridges of the movement feature hand-polished angles and are decorated with an original pattern formed by Hs.

The Hermes Carre H watch will be available in a limited edition of 173 pieces.
