Hermès: Cape Cod H1 Grand Hours/2008
Hermès pays homage to the relativity of time in creating the delightfully clever and innovative "Grand Hour" timekeeping mechanism.
Now available in the elegant Cod Cape watch, a paragon of Hermès timepieces. Developed exclusively for Hermès, the Grand Hours module incorporates a sophisticated system of oval-toothed wheels that makes it possible to speed up or slow down the movement of the hour hand, while the minutes and seconds tick by at the traditional pace. Available in steel, the Cape Cod Grand Hour comes in two dial colours – silvered or anthracite – and six different time-telling patterns.
