WHO THEY ARE Founded by Thierry Hermes in 1837 as a har­ness work­shop cater­ing to Euro­pean no­ble­men, the French house started of­fer­ing leather items and cloth­ing in the early 1900s un­der the man­age­ment of Hermes’ grand­sons, Adolphe and Emile Mau­rice. It in­tro­duced its Swiss-made watch line in 1978. CLAIM TO FAME The sig­na­ture H-our timepiece. WHAT’S HOT The Arceau Time Sus­pended, which comes in a 38mm ver­sion for ladies. It houses a play­ful mech­a­nism that snaps the hour and minute to a 12 o’clock po­si­tion when ac­ti­vated, giv­ing the il­lu­sion that time has stopped, even though the move­ment con­tin­ues to run. RETAILS AT Hermes bou­tiques at Liat Tow­ers, Takashimaya, Scotts Square, Ma­rina Bay Sands, and Hermes watch bou­tiques at Paragon and Ma­rina Bay Sands
