Slim d’Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique

The Slim d’Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique is a watch like a hothouse plant. No, that description doesn’t do justice to the luscious floral design on the mother-of-pearl dial of this watch. This miniature artwork was inspired by a Hermès scarf designed by Mexican graphic designer Laetitia Bianchi.

The ticking heart of this watch is the Hermès H1950 movement fitted in a white gold, 39.5mm case.

The matching green alligator strap is the perfect fit for the natural theme. The watch comes in a limited edition of just six, price on application.
