Hermès adopts a mother-of-pearl dial as a canvas on which to highlight the art of miniature painting in this 39.5 mm diameter watch. In a composition entirely crafted within the in-house workshops, the model is issued as a limited and numbered six-piece edition. The artisan begins by transferring onto the mother-of-pearl the motif drawing inspiration from a Hermès silk scarf by the graphic designer Laetitia Bianchi, before hand-crafting each line. Once the outlines of the motif have been sketched out more clearly, he prepares the palette of colours. Wielding the tip of his brush with infinite delicacy, he applies a first layer that is followed by around 20 more, interspersed by successive firings in the oven at 90°C to dry the painting. The dial gradually reveals its countless subtle nuances enlivened by tiny touches of colour. Envisaged as a unique pictorial work, the dial is framed by a white gold case crafted in the Hermès workshops.
