Fellas, if you haven’t peeped the new Hermes Carré H Watch take a look. It’s definitely HOT! The watch is square, but not completely square. An extremely contemporary model, the Carré H is based on designs before today’s nomadic objects such as mobile phones and laptops, which used to have sharp-sided shells and cases. The upper watch glass is curved with rounded corners creating an elegant domed shaped while the dial below slopes downwards. Carré H Watch has been described as supple, accurate, and anthropomorphic. The counter-curve on the wrist makes it extremely light to wear and eliminates any stiffness. For my luxury lovers, you already know Hermes is the epitome of contemporary classicism.
Like the hands on a watch, certain ideas cross paths, brush against each other and then glide on. Those of designer and architect Marc Berthier, and of Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director of Hermès, simply met and mingled. These devotees of the finer things in life united their passions and their expertise. This encounter and this creative spirit “squared” have given rise to a rare object stemming from a magnificent alchemist’s blend.
