Hermes-simple Time Run

Slim d’ Hermes ultra-thin series line design of front bridge is simple, giving time a pleasing rhythm: from the case design to the original time stamp font, all are based on the theme of aesthetic craftsmanship. With this series, Hermès pays tribute to the brand’s harness manufacturing, leather workshop and Daming fire enamel craftsmanship.
   Mr. Philippe Delhotal, Hermès watch production director, said: ‘This series is an epoch-making work made by the perfect combination of brands, designers and craftsmen, showing the essence of a unique brand.’
   The harmonious combination of artistic design and watchmaking craftsmanship creates the ultimate pure definition; the brand’s watchmaking expertise is fully reflected in the perfect cooperation of dial, case and self-made ultra-thin movement; the lug design at 12 o’clock is extremely delicate, becoming a watch The frame of the crown forms a right angle with the rounded curve of the case. This style extends to the table spring, the matte cigar-colored leather cord is coiled and wound, and the transparent bottom cover shows the heart of the movement. The overall structure is simple and neat, compatible with the aesthetic and visual balance.
Original font
   The original typeface of Slim d’ Hermes is from the handwriting of Mr. Philippe Apeloig. It is the first time that a designer has designed a typeface for a watch, and it looks elegant on the wide dial. Mr. Philippe Apeloig explained: ‘I start with the basic elements, just like the composer composes a chapter of a symphony with seven notes and staffs. I take inspiration from the movement of the human body, and focus on repetition and overlap, and then on the size of the font. And line rhythm. ‘
   The dial font is concise, which fully meets the primary function of the watch to clearly display the time: the geometrically designed font is light and neat. It is like a rest on a musical score, which is used to strengthen the characteristics of the melody; some digital lines are broken in the middle, which represents a paused space, which cleverly describes the rhythm of time.
   The dial is divided into three levels: the hours are on the periphery, the center circle is on the inner circle, and the small second hand at six o’clock.
Colorful
   In 2015, Hermès first introduced the Slim d’ Hermes Manufacture and Slim d’ Hermes Perpetual Calendar models equipped with the H1950 ultra-thin caliber, both of which are 39.5 mm, and women’s models with diameters of 32 and 25 mm are also available.

   Men’s models have new options such as a slate gray dial with grey crocodile straps, and a night blue model with matte indigo straps; all straps are made by Hermes leather workshops, embodying the spirit of branded harness manufacturing and leather craft .

   The Slim d’Hermes Manufacture watch is equipped with the H1950 ultra-thin automatic movement, which can be easily read through the sapphire crystal case back; the movement is only 2.6 mm thick, with a precision mini-rotor winding energy storage, power reserve 42 hours with hour, minute and 6 o’clock small seconds display; movement decoration like hand-chamfered splint highlights extraordinary watchmaking craftsmanship; H1950 ultra-thin movement is engraved with Hermes exclusive H pattern like all Hermes movements.
