Yes, it’s impolite to stare, but we can’t help it in the case of the three incredible new watches by French heritage house Hermès. Each makes for a unique masterpiece that seamlessly combines heritage, luxury, and modernity – all at the very highest end of the spectrum. Discover the exquisite new timepieces below and take a peek inside the atelier, where skilled artisans work tirelessly on creating these flawless items of lust.
'Arceau Pocket Ailes et Écailles'
Combining the mysterious-sounding art of “scarab beetle elytra marquetry” with engraving and miniature enamel painting, this dreamy watch is a true work of art. The inspiration for the design comes from a beach towel created for Hermès by artist Pierre Marie. Adding further appeal is the fact that only two pieces were launched of this limited-edition watch, which is made of white gold and enamel and features an alligator strap.
This entirely diamond-studded darling made with white gold and thousands of gems is as precious as a watch can get. Functioning as both a jewelry cuff and a timepiece, the ‘Médor Secrète’ screams high-end luxury and was inspired by the dog collars and harnesses from the early days of Hermès.
'Médor Serti Baguette'
Traditional artisan work combines with the latest innovative techniques to result in this incredibly elegant watch. It features white gold, diamonds placed with an invisible setting, and exotic leatherwork. A staggering 626 diamonds and smooth sapphire-blue or geranium-alligator straps come together for the definitive splurge that personifies light, nature, and craftsmanship.
