Hermès: Dressage l’Heure Masquée

The Parisian firm adds to its Le Temps de l'Imaginaire collection with a watch that again plays with time: Dressage L'heure masquée. The hour hand is hidden behind the constantly moving minute hand, and appears only when the pusher in the crown is pressed, at the same time revealing a second time zone. When the pusher is released, the hour hand and second time zone disappear again, and time regains an air of mystery. The patented H1925 movement is by Vaucher Manufacture. Limited edition of 500.
