#FirstClassFriday: The Slim d’Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique is the epitome of subtle nuance
Blooms of nature
A miniature painting of flourishing blooms and lush greens sketched on an exquisite mother-of-pearl canvas — this artisanal timepiece is the Slim d'Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique, an evergreen beauty like none other.
Wholly crafted in-house, the inspiration behind this limited edition watch originates from the motif drawing of a Hermès silk scarf by Mexican graphic designer Laetitia Bianchi. Each stroke of the detailed watch face is painstakingly etched by the expert hands of an artisan, then delicately painted with a customised colour palette before going into the oven to dry. This process is replicated another 20 times in order to achieve its shifting gradation of colours.
Pairing with its gorgeous visage is the ultra-thin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement, the ideal combination of form and function. Like the rich tapestries of 15th and 16th century Mexico from where the timepiece derives its name, the Slim d'Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique is a work of art superimposed on the elegant lines of the signature Slim collection.
The Slim d'Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique is a numbered six-piece limited edition issue.
