10 LUXURY HERMES WATCHES THAT WE WANTThe new Carré H WatchDesigned in 2010 by Marc Berthier, this "architect's watch" appears this year with a perforated leather strap featuring red or yellow burnishing.

The Carré H watch displays a sporty touch with a new black or natural Barenia caftstrap with perforating reflecting the circular geometry of the display. Available in red or bright yellow, the burnishing matches the seconds sand sweeping around a black or anthracite grey guilloché and finely grained dial.

Crafted in the workshops of La Montre Hermès in Brügg, the perforated and colorfully burnished leather accentuates the aesthetic codes of the Carré H: Modernity with its polished and bead blasted steel square case with rounded angles; and immediate legibility, with its pure dial bearing luminescent numerals topped by a cylindrical crystal.

This new version of the Carré H watch adds a new chapter to the story of an encounter between the French designer & architect and the leather & saddle making expertise cultivated by Hermès.


The New Hermes Arceau L’heure De La Lune Watch

Travelling in another dimension, cosmic and dreamlike. Setting foot on the moon and losing one’s sense of time and space. The Arceau L’heure de la lune watch offers a unique vision of Earth’s satellite with the simultaneous display of moon phases in both northern and southern hemispheres. Two mobile counters gravitate on a lunar, Martian or Black Sahara meteorite dial, revealing mother-of-pearl moons in step with an exclusive module, coupled with a Manufacture Hermès movement.

An offbeat expression of a classic horological complication, the Arceau L’heure de la lune watch offers an original interpretation of Hermès watchmaking expertise. Framed by a white gold or platinum case, the mechanics adopt a light, barely-there role. Meteorite inlaid with mother-of-pearl form a cosmos in which satellite dials float above hemispherical moons. These mischievous displays have swapped cardinal points, with the south above and the north below. A topsy-turvy direction inviting observers to lose their bearings, with their head in the stars.

The horse, representing the origins of Hermès, gallops elegantly into the world of dreams. At 12 o’clock, the moon is adorned by a Pegasus designed by the “dreamer-designer” Dimitri Rybaltchenko. Entitled Pleine Lune (Full Moon), this portrayal of the winged horse hints at a passage between two worlds, where magic and reality merge. On the other side, at 6 o’clock, the view of the moon from the northern hemisphere provides a realistic depiction of its surface.

The mobile counters displaying the time and date turn weightlessly to reveal the moon discs while maintaining their horizontal orientation. This contemporary dance is choreographed by a module exclusively developed for Hermès and for which a patent has been filed. With a total thickness of just 4.2 mm, its 117 polished and bead-blasted components are incorporated within the Manufacture Hermès H1837 movement: a technical challenge designed to preserve the slenderness of the overall mobile chassis, which sweeps around the dial in 59 days. The mother-of-pearl moons set into the stone display the lunar cycles in the northern and southern hemispheres. This mysterious game of hide-and-seek reveals nothing of its technical complexity, so as to give pride of place to dreams.

Within this space-time, metal, stars, and rock seamlessly merge the watch exterior with the movement to form an unprecedented technical and aesthetic display of simple and graphic readability. The double moon here eclipses a traditional aperture-type display, instead of covering the entire surface of the dial. The result is a free-spirited and impertinent vision of mechanical watchmaking according to Hermès.

‍The Arceau case with its asymmetrical lugs, designed by Henri d’Origny in 1978, becomes a lunar crater made of meteorite stone, while the lacquered dials, gravitating like satellites, display Arabic numerals with a distinctive sloping font. This Haute Horlogerie timepiece is fitted with a matt alligator strap in black, Havana, or Veronese green, depending on the versions.

With Hermès, time has entered another dimension. A dimension where style is not just a marketing pitch, but a real aesthetic aim. Each component has its own identity. Once brought together, the elements give the watch a unique character. For proof, you just need to look at the brand-new Slim Titane. The chapter ring is made up of white figures in an original typeface. Designed by Philippe Apeloig, they are precisely cut out from the watch face. In the center, an azure surface houses a grained counter at 6 o’clock in the same color as the hours. While the Parisian firm likes to play with materials, it also shows unique skill in combining colors. So we find a touch of orange, Hermès’ trademark color, in figure 12 and on the small second hand, helping to bring the simple design to life. The watch is housed in a 39.5mm-wide titanium case with a swirling, satin-brushed bezel.

The time elements are powered by an extra-flat calibre, the H1950, which is just 2.6mm thick. The self-winding movement provides the watch with 42 hours of power reserve, thanks to the rotor on display through the sapphire crystal. The delicate mechanism is decorated with a forest of H’s and features hand-filed angles on the bridges. The matt alligator leather strap worn with the Slim Titane recalls the colors on the dial. The front comes in a graphite tone, while the lining is a smooth orange.

Hermes Arceau 41MM in Matte Black - Black
Hermès presents a new timepiece that reveals the oscillations at its heart, the beating of its movement: the Arceau Skeleton watch. A round case extended by a steel stirrup: therein lies the very essence of the Arceau collection, inspired by the origins of the company itself, the equestrian world.

The Arceau Skeleton’s two sapphire crystals reveal the beating heart of the mechanism within: blued hands and large second hand, open-worked bridges and main plate, polished gear wheels, and a skeletonized oscillating weight reproducing the Hermès signature. Against this exquisite mechanical backdrop, tiny arabesque numerals appear to be dancing around the rim of the brown or slate-grey dial.

In its characteristic, understated manner, the Arceau collection thus offers an elegant and refined interpretation of the Skeleton watch. Mechanical precision blends with the simplicity of steel and the sensuality of a Havana or black alligator leather strap.

Apple Watch Hermes GPS + Cellular 44mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case with Noir Swift Leather Sin

Now it’s time to take a look at the all-new Apple Watch Series 5, one that comes with updated features that amp up the desirability factor of the much-lauded device.

First up, in contrast to previous Apple Watch versions that power down after a period of inactivity, Series 5 comes with Always-On Retina Display that keeps key features visible on the screen at all times. This is done using an all-new display driver that runs on an efficient power management system, along with an integrated ambient light sensor that will allow the Apple Watch to last approximately 18 hours on a single charge. Other plus points of the device include a built-in compass function which shows elevation, incline, latitude, and longitude, along with Fall Detection, where an emergency call is automatically made if you’ve taken a hard fall and remain unresponsive after 60 seconds.

Function aside, the star of the Apple Watch Series 5 has got to be its continued partnership with Hermès, with a brand new selection that’s now available to order online via Apple, or coming to a store near you (in selected Hermès boutiques and Apple stores in Singapore) from 20 September 2019. This includes the limited-edition set rendered in full black (think of it as the perfect accompaniment to your So Black Birkin or Kelly), thanks to the brilliant combination of Space Black stainless steel case and tone-on-tone Swift leather band, along with an additional black Hermès Sport Band so you can switch it up as and when you please.
