SIHH newcomer Hermès seeks to raise profile with reinvention of a classic watch


Hermès was the biggest new exhibitor at the prestigious SIHH exhibition in Geneva last week, and the fashion house marked its 40 years since it moved into watchmaking by recreating a 2010 classic.

The Carré H returns in a new style, with Hermès designer Marc Berthier enlarging the square case by a few millimetres and playing with surfaces and light effects across its guilloché dial and steel case where polished and microbead-blasted finishes interplay.

The 38mm square watch comes with an Opaline center in grey or black, as well as rhodium plates hands.


The Hermès Manufacture H1912 movement is housed inside this square steel case and protected with crystal front and back. It comes with a calfskin strap in black or brown.
