Hermès is not the first name to come to mind when one thinks of high-end watches. Nonetheless, the Parisian marquee has presented surprisingly stunning horological pieces over the years. As part of the 2017 edition of Baselworld, the brand unveils the Quantième Perpétuel Platine – a fabulous addition to the Slim d’Hermès collection. In the past, the watch collection has successfully pleased connoisseurs with intriguing models such as the Arceau Temps Suspendu. Astonishing us yet again with a complicated yet simplistically alluring wonder, Hermès introduces the Quantième Perpétuel Platine in a luxurious blue.
Sitting stylishly in a platinum case with a blue dial, the new version of the Quantième Perpétuel is compellingly intricate. Complete with a second time zone, moonphase (with mother of pearl moon), day/night indicator, a perpetual calendar and an automatic in-house movement with a 42-hour power reserve, the blue clad Quantième Perpétuel has been designed with utmost precision and expertise. The luxe case of the timepiece measures about 39.5 mm and showcases sophisticated AR-coated sapphire crystals. Apart from its bewildering features that include an automatic, ultra-thin caliber H1950 with 32 jewels and a 21,600 vph, the Slim d’Hermès Quantième Perpétuel Platine comes with a sleek blue alligator leather strap with a platinum pin – buckle.
Complementing the Hermès allure to perfection, the Quantième Perpétuel Platine makes a prime example of horological excellence. To be introduced by the brand later this year, this new addition to the Slim d’Hermès collection is expected to retail at a reported price of $39,990 USD.
