HERMÈS – SLIM D’HERMÈS PETIT MODELE AND SLIM D’HERMÈS TRES PETIT MODELE
KEEPING SLENDER WRISTS IN MIND
A must in the watch collections of the Parisian fashion house, the Slim d’Hermès is now available in two new models for the slimmest of wrists.
Just two years after its original launch, the Slim d’Hermès still delights with new offerings. Adding bespoke artistic accents and complications to the mix, this collection continues to expand with two new models in two different dial colours and case sizes. Here are a few highlights on this watch duo by Hermès.
The key to the success of Slim d’Hermès, as for most of the watch collections from this Parisian fashion house, is essentially its simplicity. Already known for quintessentially understated elegance, the Slim d’Hermès Petit Modèle and Slim d’Hermès Très Petit Modèle dress up a bit more with a strand of sparkling diamonds. In total, 60 or 70 jewels crown the steel 32mm (Petit Modèle or PM) and 24mm (Très Petit Modèle or TPM) cases. The fire from these precious gems illuminates deep black, magnolia white and pale rose dials, accentuating custom numerals designed by renowned typographer Philippe Apeloig.
In white or black depending on dial colour, tiny circular minute markers serve to emphasize his ethereal figures and a petite pearl subtly punctuates the hour. The translucent rose watch face features a grosgrain texture whilst the black lacquer boasts a sunburst pattern. Where baton hour and minute hands meet, dial centres are decorated with circular guilloché engraving.
Swiss quartz movement powers the Slim d’Hermès Petit Modèle and Slim d’Hermès Très Petit Modèle alike.
