Baselworldbasel 2013-hermès Dressage Chronograph

Since 2012, all Dressage models are equipped with Hermès ‘self-developed movements, demonstrating the enthusiasm of the brand for the development of high-end watch technology, and reflecting Hermès’ adherence to the pursuit of perfection since its establishment in 1837, and more than 100 brands Over the years, we continue to strive for excellence and persist in technological innovation.
The new Dressage chronograph is elegant, with two models: a silver-white dial with a matte cigar alligator strap and a black dial with a matte black alligator strap. The simple dial design actually hides subtle details: the central part is decorated with straight lines, and the three-dimensional hour markers reflect the glorious glory, and the inner bezel design makes the dial more layered.

These two new works are equipped with their own H1925 movement in honor of the brand’s first chronograph launched in 1925. Like other Hermes-made movements, H1925’s modification process is very delicate. The pearl pattern and spiral pattern of the splint are polished by hand, and the rotor is decorated with the brand’s ‘H’ pattern.
The barrel-shaped case has simple and neat lines, but there are no shortage of features. The lugs are subtly integrated into the curvature of the case. The space between the lugs and the case is shaped like a stable, inspired by Hermes’ equestrian world.
The strap is made by Hermes Watch & Leather Workshop located in Biel, Switzerland. It is carefully selected from the finest leathers. With enthusiasm, it is sewn with the Hermes saddle stitch method, inheriting the essence of the brand’s craftsmanship.
