The Slim d’Hermès Squelette Lune mingles simplicity with informality and demanding details with the daring use of contrasting materials and stylistic crossovers. This model with its pure lines carved from ultra-light titanium is joining the Slim d’Hermès collection, created in 2015.
The round case and angular lugs of the Slim d’Hermès Squelette Lune exemplify a blend of rigorous discipline and optimal balance, playing with paradoxes, hovering between elements that are at once classical and contemporary, understated and assertive. In a clever juxtaposition of materials, the bead-blasted titanium case-middle is topped by a precious platinum bezel and a white gold crown, creating subtle light and textural effects. The deep shades of the skeletonised dial, accentuated by its airy architecture and alternating matt and glossy finishes, express both the character and the refinement of this beautiful horological object.
In keeping with the cosmic and dreamlike dimension of Hermès time, a double Moon, also open-worked, completes this light and easily legible ensemble, sweeping over the slender blue hands that match the stitching on the alligator leather strap. The hours, minutes and moon phases beat to the rhythm of the ultra-thin self-winding Hermès H1953 Manufacture movement, adorned with the ‘sprinkling of Hs’ motif. The finely fashioned movement, case and strap are crafted by artisans in the Hermès Horloger workshops, based on the inherent skills of the Maison.

Time, a Hermès object
Hermès creates objects. Objects shaped by the hands of artisans to make them true companions for those who wear them. Practical, functional and stemming from uncompromising expertise, they radiate the lightness of the unexpected. They make everyday life their playground, and each instant a uniquely special moment. For Hermès, time is also an object. Its inherent tension is translated by the house into a singular characteristic. Rather than measuring, ordering, and seeking to control it, Hermès dares to explore another time, designed to arouse emotions, open up interludes and create spaces for spontaneity and recreation.
