Hermès H08


Hermès H08


Sporty spirit
and urban look
La Cote des Montres - January 16th, 2023

The Hermès H08 watch with its sporty spirit and urban look echoes the masculine universe of the House. Its pluralistic nature is now interpreted through a new rose gold and titanium model.

Created in 2021, the Hermès H08 watch embodies a blend of rigorous discipline and high standards. Hovering between tension and fluidity, this contemporary design signature with its powerful style forms an object that is all about balance and contrast. Its pluralistic nature is expressed through a play on shapes and materials. Careful attention to detail and accurate operations shape a look that is as sporty as it is elegant. The vitality and sensuality of its lines reveal a singular aesthetic featuring a circular dial with an original font, housed in a square case with softened edges.

Designed by Philippe Delhotal, Creative Director of Hermès Horloger, the Hermès H08 watch mingles texture and minerality, deep hues and colourful touches, uncluttered and geometrical lines, along with a matt or shiny appearance. This recent signature is now enriched by a model combining gold and titanium.

Crafted in a sturdy and light alloy, the cushion-shaped case of the Hermès H08 watch is composed of a black DLC- treated titanium case-back topped by a rose gold case middle. This play on opposites is enhanced by a black ceramic bezel and crown. Alternating satin-brushed and polished finishes, this two-tone case highlights the depth of the blackened, finely grained dial against which luminescent golden hands and Arabic numerals stand out in perfect clarity. The central minutes disc and the seconds hand are treated in black nickel, while the date appears in a cushion- shaped aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock.

This legible and beautifully balanced display is driven by the Manufacture Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement. A strap in black and anthracite fabric webbing or black rubber with a titanium DLC folding clasp underscores the elegance of this new model.


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.
