Hermès & Hodinkee Team Up To Create Limited Edition Slim d’Hermès Automatics
Created by the luxury legacy brand’s timepiece-focused subsidiary, La Montre Hermès, the Slim d’Hermès automatic was first launched in 2015 and was an overnight success. Today, they’ve created 2 special limited-editions of 100 pieces in a special partnership with Hodinkee. One is a time-only, the other is a GMT model. Both feature a slim 39mm case, a Vaucher-made caliber, and simple yet stunning Philippe Apeloig-designed typeface. The dials are a rich, deep blue with the seconds register in frosted silver, and the crystal is slightly smoked to give them a subtle vignette. The straps are alligator.
