Official description

WINTER – In winter, an ice wolf in paillonné enamel twirls in a white gold case set with 52 baguette-cut diamonds. This meticulous technique consists of inserting gold or silver flakes between enamel layers to create a play on light, transparency and depth.

Depicting Nature’s bounty and a whimsical animal world, Slim d’Hermès embodies exceptional expertise. Four limited-edition models adorned with paillonné enamel, engraving or miniature painting vividly interpret the cycle of the seasons.

Crafted by experienced artisans, Slim d’Hermès Le Sacre des saisons highlights a palette of skills that are as demanding as they are remarkable. Each embodying a season, four animal figures drawn from a Hermès silk scarf take on a new artistic dimension on the dial in a profusion of nuances and captivating details.

Designed by Philippe Delhotal in 2015, Slim d’Hermès expresses the very essence of Hermès: a singularity that is all about rigorous discipline and pleasing balance. Its pure, contemporary yet timeless lines evoke the inimitable style and imaginary world of Hermès. Showcasing a range of rare and often unexpected crafts, it boldly – yet with a light touch – revisits the silk scarf titled Le Sacre des saisons and designed by artist Pierre Marie.

A sun-haloed lion, an eagle with unfurled leafy wings, an ice-crowned wolf and a horse with a flower-strewn mantle: each animal symbolises a season and embodies the narrative universe and baroque fantasy of the French designer. The beauty of Nature and the depth of time are reflected in the richness of the motifs, inspired by the costumes of 17th and 20th century French and Russian ballets. Appearing on a refined dial elegantly framed by a gold case, thismischievous bestiary reveals unique and precious skills.

Eloquently expressing Hermès’ watchmaking expertise, these four remarkable watches are powered by a Manufacture H1950 ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement. Each issued in a 12-piece edition, they are paired with a matt or smooth alligator leather strap, crafted in accordance with the in-house leather-making expertise.
