Hermès updates Cape Cod collection for 2017

Hermès first created the Cape Cod watch in 1991. The timepiece’s design came from an idea to cut the brand’s anchor chain motif in half and incorporate it into a case and lug combination that presents as a square dial gripped within a rectangle.

The style caught on, and is being re-imagined this year in a collection that includes models with a mirror-like rhodium-plated dial coated with a precious translucent lacquer. It is available in large or small versions with a single or double tour Milanese mesh bracelet.

Two other variations include a large model with a single or double tour étoupe or Malta blue strap. The dial of the first features a black gold treatment, while the second is blue lacquered with the divided anchor chain motif.
