Hermes introduced a new take on its  Slim D’Hermès asserting its singular character through colourful touches. Ultra-light titanium case, anthracite dial lit up with Hermès orange and its ultra-thin Manufacture Hermès movement form a lively yet understated composition.

Sleek lines and playful contrasts set a resolutely dynamic and bold tone for the Slim d’Hermès Titane.

Created in 2015 by Philippe Delhotal, Creative Director of the Hermès watchmaking division, this model is the epitome of simplicity, rigorous discipline and balance. The delicate curves of its round case with angular lugs, the purity of its dial with its original font designed by Philippe Apeloig, conceal the Hermès Manufacture Hermès H1950 self-winding movement

This Slim d’Hermès Titane features an ultra-thin 39.5 mm diameter case made from micro-blasted grade 2 titanium – a lightweight yet resistant material – topped by a circular satin bezel, creating light effects making a pleasing contrast with the depth of the anthracite dial.

The dial is composed of three parts: a chapter ring with cut-out Arabic numerals; a finely snailed centre swept over by slim baton-type hands; and a frosted crystal small seconds counter. Orange accents enliven the dial and match the burnishing on the matt graphite leather strap.

The indications on this watch face, with its distinctive font composed of beautifully spaced, airy numerals, are driven by the ultra-thin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement. The sophisticated mechanism adorned with a sprinkling of Hs and hand-bevelled bridges can be admired through the transparent sapphire caseback. The movement, case and strap are all developed and crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops.
