Hermès associates two of its time-honoured skills in this pocket watch, which spans contemporary design and classic style with the greatest of ease. One of the most striking aspects is the extraordinary expertise behind the leather crafting, which makes use of two distinct techniques: through-seam stitching and full-grain leather, whereby layers of leather are laid one on the other to produce a 6-mm thickness that will then enclose the watch. Closer observation confirms the dexterity that went into this piece. One easily imagines the craftsman's confident, practiced gestures. This precision is reflected in the self-winding, in-house movement that lives inside the white gold case. Materialised on a beautiful grand feu enamel dial, time becomes an object of irrefutable elegance, prolonged by a delicate white gold chain.
