New aes­thet­ics

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

Back in 2010, Her­mès in­tro­duced the Carré H, a square time­piece cre­ated by Marc Berthier, with a mod­ern aes­thetic, de­signed for in­stant leg­i­bil­ity. Fast for­ward to 2018, and the Carré H re­turns in a new style. Berthier has en­larged the square and opted for light ef­fects, play­ing across the steel case with its pol­ished and mi­crobeads-blasted fin­ishes. He also did it on the dial with its right-an­gled guil­loché work and on the facetted hands and nu­mer­als. This bal­anced use of light ac­cen­tu­ates the clar­ity of the de­sign, the soft­ened edges of the square and also the curved pro­file of the case. Over­all, the house dares to of­fer a time­piece de­signed to open up new in­ter­ludes and cre­ate spa­ces for recre­ation.
