Official description

The Cape Cod Chaîne d’ancre watch smoothly and casually transitions from one style to the next. Its iconic links intertwine on a striated dial, coated with Glycine or blue lacquer.

The distinctive and impertinent Cape Cod watch was born in 1991 from the unbridled pencil strokes of Henri d’Origny. The designer had intended it to be a square watch, but it turned out to be «a square in a rectangle». With its pure lines and bold spirit, the Cape Cod shakes up existing aesthetic codes. Its original case composed of two «anchor chain» half-links plays with the emblematic motif created by Robert Dumas in 1938: a design inspired by a boat chain, which has become a brand style signature.

Displaying the innate ease of a timeless icon, the Cape Cod watch finds its way through the years with a light- hearted attitude, freely and joyfully undergoing successive transformations. Two new feminine gemset or non-set models interpret the double chain on a graphic dial in shades of Glycine or blue. The intertwined links stand out against a background of stamped horizontal lines, all coated in tinted lacquer and swept over by fine baton-type hands. Crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops, an alligator or calfskin strap accentuates the soft dusty shades of these contemporary and elegant creations.
