Speaking of the origin of Cape Cod, it is necessary to go back to 1991, when the designer Henri d’ Origny suddenly thought of embedding a square face plate in a rectangular frame, and the prototype of Cape Cod was born. In the years that followed, Cape Cod kept pace with the times, constantly applying ingenuity to interpret the original design ideas. Today, the new Cape Cod we see has a clear style for men’s watches. At the same time, the superb craftsmanship of fine watchmaking has also created the movement, case and dial. Coupled with a strap made from Hermes’ excellent leather processing skills, the new Cape Cod collection is really looking forward to.
