The New Hermes Slim d’Hermès GMT Rose Gold (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
Strolling in step with Hermès time. Making light work of time zones. From Paris to New York and from Buenos Aires to Mumbai, the slender elegance of the rose gold case gracing the new Slim d’Hermès GMT criss-crosses the globe. The mysterious allure of its blue dial bearing a deliciously light font is revealed through a smoked glass, its indications moving to the tune of the ultra-thin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement and its exclusive – likewise ultra- thin – GMT module. Losing one’s bearings, living the moment anytime, anywhere.
The Hermes Slim d’Hermès line embodies essentials: simplicity imbued with rigorous discipline and aesthetic balance; the unmistakable signature of the collection born in 2015. At once classic and modern, it devotes considerable attention to details. The slender curves of the case middle, the right-angled curves, the original numeral font designed by Philippe Apeloig.
Made from rose gold, the GMT version becomes the ideal companion for today’s globetrotter. Its ultra-thin 9.48 mm thick case reveals its pure display beneath an enigmatic smoked crystal veil. The broad blue dial with its distinctive font – slim numerals with spaces between them – is adorned with subtle finishing that accentuates its intensity. A sunburst chapter ring, snailed centre and date counter, along with a grained silver-toned GMT counter studded with numerals punctuate this perfectly legible Manufacture dial swept over by slender sandblasted gilded baton-type hands.
At the heart of this journey, the new Hermes Slim d’Hermès GMT beats to the rhythm of the ultra- thin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement measuring just 2.6 mm thick, combined with the 1.4 mm of the ultra-thin GMT module exclusively developed by Agenhor for Hermès. In addition to the hours, minutes and date function, this mechanical self-winding composition equipped with a microrotor drives a dual-time reading complete with two day/ night indicators for home time and travel time. The time in a given destination is simply and playfully adjusted via a dedicated pushbutton. The movement bridges, hand-chamfered and adorned with the ‘sprinkling of Hs’ motif, along with those of the module featuring Côtes de Genève and circular-graining, can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back. A matt abyss blue alligator strap, crafted in the Hermès leather workshops, binds this reliable travel companion firmly to the wrist.
