Hermès Cap Code Shadow
Cape Cod, an icon born out of a rebellion. That of Henri d’Origny, a longstanding creative partner of the Maison, who was asked by Hermès to design a square watch. But this free spirit saw things differently and preferred to respond in an almost irreverent manner with a watch representing a “square inside a rectangle”.
The stylishly attired Cape Cod has made its way blithely through more than 25 years while exuding a natural air of authority. Its design reflects rigorous discipline combined with a boldly impertinent attitude. Its natural penchant is to lend itself with great aplomb to the ebb and flow of the times.
Definitely not the kind to stand still, Cape Cod disconcerts observers with the full-on aesthetic appeal of the Shadow. A black DLC-treated case, a matt black dial, red burnishing of the strap edges: such are the deliberate style choices of a model profoundly enamoured of liberty.
Hermès creates objects. Objects shaped by the hands of artisans to make them true companions for those who wear them. Practical, functional and stemming from uncompromising expertise, they radiate the lightness of the unexpected. They make everyday life their playground, and each instant a uniquely special moment.
For Hermès, time is also an object. Its inherent tension is translated by the house into a singular characteristic. Rather than measuring, ordering, and seeking to control it, Hermès dares to explore another time, designed to arouse emotions, open up interludes and create spaces for spontaneity and recreation.
