A strong and steadfast signature, Heure H – created in 1996 under the impetus of the designer Philippe Mouquet – is more than a watch. It is indeed a symbol, which has maintained its edginess, its dynamism and its freshness over the years, thanks largely to the singular idea of capturing time inside a letter. An amusing way to frame the passing of time.

An object of Hermès’ leather goods expertise, the double tour strap – designed by Martin Margiela for his first fashion show for Hermès in 1998 – ts seamlessly into the case and accentuates its graphic shape. This watch band features a dual nature, with a classic finish between the case lugs and a geometric micro-perforated H pattern on the second loop around the wrist. To achieve a transparent effect, a wafer-thin sliver of Beton leather is inserted between the two strap sections.

Crafted by Hermès Horloger artisans, the Heure H watch case is available in two versions. The first, made of steel, is adorned with an apricot or vermillion strap, while the second rose gold-plated variation comes with a black or etoupe strap. The white lacquered dial, punctuated by four Arabic numerals and metallic hands, strikes a pleasing contrast with the strap colours. The overall result is a perfect match between rigorous stylistic and technical disciplines, highlighted by the precision of a deft and expert touch.


Time, a Hermès object

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.
