Forget about bulky and loud timepieces that would naturally stand out in any make or model. The 39.5 mm Slim d'Hermès Perpetual Calendar, is the perfect example of how pure and simple aesthetics can still make a timepiece über stylish. The Slim d'Hermès Perpetual Calendar came up tops in the calendar category of the Grand Prix D'Horlogerie de Genève in Switzerland. This recognition in a higly demanding and competitive industry highlights the work that has been done by the team of Hermès Horloger.
The result of another collaboration between Hermès and Agenhor, the timepiece focuses on the essentials. Displayed on the white mother-of-pearl dial is a moon-phase indication, contrasted by the glass sky with copper and gold flakes. This is accompanied by a ultra-thin time-zone display and a third dial that counts down the days and months. The time-zone display is essential to the mechanics of the timepiece, as it ensures that the perpetual calendar is never out of sync when the user sets the time.
Bringing the typography that was seen on the Slim d'Hermès on the broad dial, it creates almost a play like persona on the otherwise business-like timepiece. Witness the impressive mechanism of the slim creation through the sapphire crystal glass on the case back. The final piece to the puzzle? The matte alligator leather available in either black or a suave Havana brown.
