Hermes takes great pride in unveiling its new Dressage Perpetual Calendar model, which marks a milestone in the brand’s watch design.
Manufactured at the heart of the traditional watchmaking region in Switzerland, the new Hermes watch is offered in a limited edition of 24 pieces.
Featuring a 40 mm white gold case, the timepiece strikes the eye with its refined shape, which will wrap itself around the wearer’s wrist with incomparable comfort.
Equipped with a screw-locked crown at 3 o’clock, the case features sapphires crystals on both front and back sides. Its water-resistance is ensured down to 50 meters.
The new Dressage Perpetual Calendar watch is adorned with an eminently readable dial, which presents a range of useful functions. It is completed with Arabic numerals and dot-shaped hour-markers at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock. The progression of hours and minutes is marked by centralized hands in white gold. The slender seconds hand, meanwhile, is crafted from blued steel.
The display is highlighted by a remarkable retrograde date display. Set within the dial there is also a counter at 3 o’clock, which serves to indicate the month, as well as a counter at 9 o’clock, where appears the day of the week. The year indication is arranged at 12 o’clock. The dial is visually balanced by the moon phase complication, positioned at 6 o’clock.
Giving life to the functions mentioned is a self-winding mechanical Calibre H1935 movement, entirely executed in the company’s workshops. It is composed of 393 individual parts, including 32 jewels, and graced with Haute Horlogerie finish.
With a diameter equal to 27 mm, the caliber incorporates twin series-coupled barrels, which work to deliver stable power for 55-hour full autonomy. The mechanism beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Expressing its exquisite style through an understated aesthetic, the new Hermes watch is mounted on a black alligator leather strap, which terminates in a white gold folding safety clasp.
