Tension and fluidity, robustness and delicacy: a pluralistic nature in an intense shade of blue
La Cote des Montres - June 18th, 2022

Firmly embedded in the masculine universe of the House, the Hermès H08 watch combines tension and fluidity, robustness and delicacy. This recent signature with its assertive style flaunts its pluralistic nature in an intense shade of blue.

Created in 2021 by Philippe Delhotal, Creative Director, Hermès Horloger, the Hermès H08 watch combines rigorous discipline with high standards. As sporty as it is elegant, it features a strong aesthetic dimension and plays with shapes and materials.

The Hermès H08 watch is a finely balanced object embodying the harmonious interaction of opposites and contrasts. Shaped by attention to detail and accurate skills, it is distinguished by a graphic connection between all its components that represents a true style signature. Its geometric lines reveal a bold style involving a circular dial with singular typography, framed by a case with softened edges.

Its deep blue titanium case is topped by a black ceramic bezel and screw-down crown. A play of textures and finishes highlights the blue PVD-treated dial, punctuated by white Arabic numerals and orange accents. The black hands indicating the hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the date between 4 and 5 o’clock, are driven by the Manufacture Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement.

A blue rubber strap with a black DLC titanium buckle underscores its sporty spirit and creates an urban and contemporary look echoing the world of Hermès men’s ready- to-wear.


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.
