Hermès unveils a pair of streamlined beauties for the Slim d’Hermès collection

If all things sleek, sophisticated and scintillating call out to you, then you're exactly the lady the new Slim d'Hermès novelties were crafted for. An aesthetic that flaunts supremely understated lines delineating a slender silhouette, the discreet luxury of the watch duo is such that every facet — from the dials and lugs to the script of the numerals — underscores its rich femininity.

With two models in monochromatic themes, the black edition is a quintessential dress shirt piece, gleaming darkly with an opaque black lacquer dial that's contrasted against ivory coloured pearl-shaped hour markers — a flawless canvas to emphasise the brilliant diamonds studded along its 33mm-diametre bezel. And if you're looking to swap it out for something more casual (but no less chic), the white version wears perfectly for brunch dates with a pretty magnolia-toned dial complemented by straps in Chantilly white matte. Put together in the Hermès watchmaking workshops and beating to a precise quartz movement, the women that Slim d'Hermès is one of timeless style and substance.

The new Slim d'Hermès timepieces are available at Hermès boutiques.
