Hermès has announced a new addition to the Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel – a new model in titanium. While the watch is not all titanium, it is comprised of a combination of metals in a round case measuring 39.5 mm in diameter. The middle case and case back are bead-blasted grade 5 titanium, and the bezel is available in a choice of either platinum or an 18K rose gold. The crown and pusher are in 18K white gold for the titanium and platinum model and in 18K rose gold for the titanium and 18K rose gold version.
The Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Titanium timepiece features an anthracite silver-toned dial with transferred Arabic numerals and a mother-of-pearl moon against an aventurine glass sky. The numerals were specially created for Hermès by French graphic designer Philippe Apeloig and have become synonymous with this model. The ultra-thin Manufacture H1950, produced by movement maker Vaucher, with perpetual calendar complication, ensures that the date of the months with 30 and 31 days is automatically adjusted, while accounting for leap years by indicating February 29th every four years without any need for corrections. An intricate self-winding mechanical caliber can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back. The Hermès timepiece is finished with a matte graphite alligator strap with either a platinum or 18K gold pin buckle, depending on the model ordered.
