Cape Cod Tonneau
Cape Cod, the elegant seaside resort on the east coast of the United States, is also the name of a line of Hermès watches, expressing a style based on ‘elegance in movement’. The very first Cape Cod, created in 1991 by Henri d’Origny, was inspired by the ‘Chaîne d’ancre’ bracelet and included its rectangular case in the emblematic link of the House. This case, more cambered today, has given rise to the Cape Cod tonneau, which revives the curvaceous design of the original link. Another signature feature of the collection is the double tour strap; an iconic design which has reinforced its figurative ties with the line since 1998.
Reverso Squadra Lady
The aesthetics of the Reverso Squadra Lady dial are imbued with a rich diversity: straight transferred numerals standing out against a silvercoloured dial base; or numerals with an original geometry, set against a sunburst guilloché motif and underscored by two rows of diamonds.
