With the Slim d’Hermès 39.5mm, three graceful circles on the front displaying the time indications provide ample scope for the exclusive dial font while enabling at-a-glance readings. Hermès’ determination to aim for essentials results in lines distinguished by their elementary sobriety, expressed through the slenderness of a case. The broad dial opening immediately draws the gaze, while the design of the lugs forms a right angle. The extreme simplicity of this watch conveys a movement towards essentials in a rigorous, beautifully balanced manner. Doubtless a model that women will relish borrowing from their husbands !
