Immediately recognizable for the proprietary font used for the dial numerals, the Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel is now available in two new variations in sandblasted grade 5 titanium, one with bezel, crown and pusher in rose gold and the other with platinum bezel and white gold crown and pusher.
Standing against an aventurine glass sky, the mother-of-pearl moon makes the elegant anthracite dial with silver-toned transferred numerals even more precious.
Month and leap year are displayed on the counter at 9 o’clock while the date can be read at 12 o’clock.
The hands, except for the small blue-lacquered hand of the second-time zone sub-dial at 6 o'clock, are 4N gold-plated or rhodium-plated depending on the version. The small aperture below the centre of the dial, on the right, is the day/night indicator of the second time zone.
The 39.5 mm case is water resistant to 3 bar (approximately 30 metres / 100 feet) and features a transparent sapphire crystal case back to display the ultra-thin Manufacture H1950 movement controlling the perpetual calendar complication.
Adorned with a ‘sprinkling of Hs’ motif, this self-winding movement beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 42 hours.
Matched to a matt graphite alligator strap with rose gold or platinum buckle, the Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel in titanium has a price of Euro 27,000 / US$ 33,600. hermes.com
