Hermès has tweaked the design of its Slim d’Hermès Quantieme Perpetual, introducing the new style in two new models which use bimetal cases.

Changes to the existing design include a new alternating placement of the 12 hour numerals for the watch’s second time zone at the six o’clock position, while the perpetual calendar’s months and leap year indication, which previously sat on the same dial at the nine o’clock have been separated for better legibility.

The 39.5mm case is constructed of a bead-blasted Grade 5 titanium case with either 950 platinum bezel and 18k white gold crown and pusher or bezel, crown and pusher in 18k 5N rose gold for two different high contrast looks.

Elsewhere both designs feature the same anthracite dials, applied Arabic numeral hour markers and intricate aventurine and mother of pearl moonphase displays.

The Hermès Slim d’Hermès Quantieme Perpetual uses a 2.6mm thick manufacture H1950 movement from Vaucher Fleurier, which Hermès owns a stake in, paired with a 1.4mm perpetual calendar and second time zone module from renowned Genevan movement maker, Agenhor. The micro-rotor movement beats at 3Hz, has a power reserve of 42 hours and is finished with hand-bevelled bridges and the brand’s ‘sprinkling of Hs’ engraved motif.

Both watches are available now with rose gold examples priced $33,600 USD and platinum pieces priced $33,575 USD.
