Hermès Delves into the Blue with Quantième Perpétuel Platine Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

The 2017 edition of Baselworld is still over two months away but anticipation is rapidly building. Doing nothing to slow down the enthusiasm, iconic French brand Hermès have unveiled a new creation set to debut at the prestigious Swiss watch fair.

A new addition to their Slim d’Hermès watch collection, the Quantième Perpétuel Platine timepiece sits stylishly in a platinum case with a striking blue dial.

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 watch promises to be one of the most noteworthy watches to launch in Basel.

The watch’s case measures about 39.5 mm and showcases sophisticated AR-coated sapphire crystals, an automatic, ultra-thin caliber H1950 with 32 jewels and a 21,600 vp, and a sleek blue alligator leather strap with a platinum pin buckle.

This new addition to the Slim d’Hermès collection is expected to retail at a reported price of $39,990.

Despite being primarily known for their fashion and accessories, Hermès have created a number of outsanding watches in recent years, including the hugely popular Arceau Temps Suspendu timepiece.

Founded in Paris in 1837, Hermes has grown to become one of the world’s most famous luxury labels.
