The Peak (Hong Kong) - - Watches -

Cel­e­brat­ing 150 years, IWC re­vives a pocket watch clas­sic in the form of an in­cred­i­bly en­tic­ing wrist­watch. Fea­tur­ing a jump­ing hour and minute dis­play, time is ‘dig­i­tally' dis­played across the dial of the Trib­ute to Pall­we­ber Edi­tion “150 Years”, with the small sec­onds hand sweep­ing be­low the hour dis­play. Two ad­di­tional ref­er­ences were un­veiled at the show, a plat­inum piece with a lac­quer dial and a stain­less steel ver­sion fea­tur­ing a blue dial. Lux­ury pow­er­house Her­mès opts out of this year's Basel­world and in­stead takes its col­lec­tion to Pal­expo. What re­mains though, is the brand's cre­ative take on watch­mak­ing, which in pre­vi­ous years ranged from watch with hands that can be switched on and off by com­mand, to dec­o­ra­tive di­als in­spired by tra­di­tional glass­mak­ing. The house un­veils a square time­piece with a round face, a de­sign that brings forth a strong vis­ual im­pact. In stain­less steel, the Carré H's case mea­sures 38 mm with ta­pered lugs se­cur­ing a calf­skin strap. Paired with a brown or a black strap, the piece comes in two ref­er­ences, one with a red se­cond hand while the other one ticks with a yel­low hand.
