After the delivery of the first caliber entirely developed by the Montre Hermès, H1950 at Vaucher manufacture, an after adding an Agenhor module to show the functions of the calendar, which happened a year ago with the presentation of the Quantième Perpétuel in a rose gold case. At Baselworld 2016, Hermès presented a beautiful dial under the Grand Feu technique, which means that the color and structure were fixed by a centurial technique and process that exceeds 800 degrees Celsius at the facilities of Donzé Cadrans.
This 2017 the first novelty of the year in Hermès incorporates a platinum case, in response to the predilection of the collectors for this precious metal.

Not only is a new material added for the case, but the cover is delivered in blue, contrasting with the numerology – already emblematic – of the dial. So the reading is simple and minimalist and it is available at a sight: date by hand at 12 o’clock; Moon phase at 3 o’clock; Month, proposed at 9 o’clock in coincidence with the leap year and second time zone at 6 o’clock. Of course you can read the the hours and minutes by centered hands.
It is the development of the brand facing its vision of verticalization. A self-winding caliber with micro rotor and extremely thin profile: measuring 2.6 mm in diameter and adding a 1.4 mm module with perpetual calendar functions. Its heart vibrates at 21,600 a / h (3 Hz), while the bridges, rotor and mainplate are decorated with “H” motif, ¿still wondering why?
The piece extends up to 39.5 mm in diameter and is obviously developed in platinum with sapphire crystal upper and case back to display not only the time but the finish of the movement. Finally the dial shows a Moonphase of mother-of-pearl with a “sky” of aventurine, color that is replicated in the crocodile leather strap.
