Hermès will be debuting at SIHH this year. As a preview, the Maison releases two new interpretations of its Cape Cod collection.
The Cape Cod collection was born in 1991 out of the impertinent spirit of Henri d’Origny. The design of this timepiece has the characteristic “shape within a shape” design – a square within a rectangular frame that made this watch an icon, enhanced by its double leather strap.
Today, playing with this model, the collection is enriched by two new variations, in the name of elegance, audacity and style.
The first model features a rhodium-plated dial, polished to obtain a mirror effect and coated by a precious translucid lacquer. Available in small and large sizes, this timepiece presents a Milanese mesh bracelet, simple or double.
Also, two more variations add to the Cape Cod collection’s versatility.
Only for the large model, always with simple or double leather strap, there are two additional coloured versions, one in taupe and another in Maltese blue.
The dial of the first model is treated with black gold, while the one of the second model has blue lacquer. Both present the “Chaîne d’Ancre” motifs, a design detail that underlines the collection’s spirit, rich in intriguing discoveries.
It will be fascinating to see the novelties that Hermès will unveil at the upcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie.
Novelties that will not only measure time but will also transform it into emotions – the time of fantasy and divertissement.
