On the square
The cape cod watch design was born in 1991 from Henri d’Origny’s vision of creating a chic style capturing the free spirit of the peninsula it was named after. Hermès’s legendary Artistic director combined a square, slightly curved case and dial with bold elongated lugs. With its unusual appeal, the watch was an instant success and has been a staple in the Hermès collections ever since. Hermès has reinventing the collection by stirring up old and new ingredients. From the past, the anchor chain motif by robert dumas is beautifully is completed with d’Origny’s original “square in rectangular” design.
