(Im)Patience is a Virtue
While most watches simply tell us the time, the Slim d’Hermès L’heure impatiente invites us to look forward to upcoming events. The watch’s unique “Impatient Hour” module allows users to set a counter to the time of an upcoming event that is less than 12 hours away. An hour before the event occurs, the mechanical hourglass comes to life and culminates in a sweet-sounding tone denoting the exact time of the event. This charming and emotional feature is encased within the watch’s 40.5mm rose gold case, and is accompanied by an Abyss blue matt alligator leather strap.
