The Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Platine

The Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Platine
The font of the numerals is specially designed for the Hermès Slim collection

The all-blue-clad Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Platine is a soft-spoken beauty. The numerals with their font specially designed for the Slim collection stand out with light and airy grace. While the date, month, dual-time and leap-year indications are displayed on various counters, a mother-of-pearl moon phase graces an aventurine sky backdrop at 3 o’clock.

The elegant and graphic dial of the 39.5mm Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Platine melts seamlessly into the surrounding precious platinum case which houses the ultra-thin H1950 in-house movement with an Agenhor module.

Full spectrum of watchmaking skills

the-slim-d-hermes-quantieme-perpetuel-platine-1The perpetual calendar ensures that the date of months with 30 and 31 days is automatically adjusted, while taking account of leap years by indicating February 29th every four years without any need for corrections. Adorned with a ‘sprinkling of Hs’ and meticulously hand-bevelled, the movement also powers day/night, dual-time and moon-phase indications within a composition measuring just 4 mm thick. The movement with 42 hours power reserve can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.

With its new Slim Quantième Perpétuel Platine, Hermès unites the full spectrum of watchmaking skills. Its gleaming platinum exterior provides a perfect setting for mechanical complications to rub shoulders with the skill of case and dial-making artisans, while an Abyss blue alligator strap reflecting impeccable leather craftsmanship sets the perfect finishing touch.
