Twenty Years Later, Hermès Returns to Timepieces

After a 20-year hiatus, Hermès announced its return to the timepiece industry. The French label rolled out their new collection – available in three sizes: 39.5mm, 32mm, and 25mm – at Baselworld. Sold in a variety of materials and makes, the Slim d’Hermès is available in stainless steel or rose gold casing atop a clear crystal backing and is finished with alligator, steel, calf or Bareria leather straps. As if that weren’t enough, interested buyers also have the option to add diamond to their front casing for an extra ounce of glamour.

The Slim, designed by La Montre Hermès creative director Philippe Delhotal, is just that: made with thin, sleek numerals and hands for a light timepiece that won’t weigh down your wrist. The watch is also made almost entirely inhouse, and the straps are crafted at a Hermès factory in Switzerland.

Hypebeast reports although the full range won’t be available for purchase until October, each piece will retail beginning at $3,100 and could cost upwards of $38,900.
