Diamonds break out of the mould as the miniature “Nantucket” appears in a whirl of sparkling radiance. At its birth in 1991, this Hermes watch model was fitted with a rectangular case featuring the “Anchor Chain” motif created by Henri d’Origny who had been asked to design a square shape.
Continuing the saga of an aesthetic rebellion, this “Tres Petit Modele” further accentuates the outline of the original design and celebrates diamonds for daily wear, dotted around as if the wind had scattered them across the watch. Nantucket thus becomes a relaxed piece of daytime jewellery. Crafted in steel, it is fitted with a choice of single tour alligator straps in smooth ember or matte toupe in Mykonos blue, cactus green, abysse blue, black variations.
For Hermes, time is also an object. They make everyday life their playground, and each instant a uniquely special moment. Its inherent tension is translated by the house into a singular characteristic. Rather than measuring, ordering, and seeking to control it, Hermes dares to explore another time, designed to arouse emotions, open up interludes and create spaces for spontaneity and recreation.
