If a new year marks the sign of new beginnings, then Hermes is certainly taking a bold step forward. This is the first year the brand has decided to exhibit at SIHH 2018 instead of BaselWorld.
Despite not showcasing a technical novelty this year, the Carre Cuir, where dial and strap seemingly become one, and the diamond-studded Klikti still managed to steal the spotlight. Men can look forward to a striking new Carre H (it vaguely resembles a more refined version of Bell & Ross’s BR01 or BR03 series). First launched in 2010, the newest addition comes with a guilloche dial and a grained chapter ring.
In the aesthetics department, the well-loved Cape Cod receives a double tour mesh strap, while the Arceau Millefiori pocket watch comes with a mock alligator dial.
We’ll be posting daily roundups of SIHH throughout the week, along with in-depth analyses later on in the month, so stay tuned. In the mean time, follow us on Instagram and watch our InstaStories for the latest happenings at SIHH.
