A LIGHT TOUCH

TIME Her­mes re­freshes the de­sign of Carre H.

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Time - By KEN­NETH TAN

The Carre H, a Marc Berthier-de­signed time­piece, de­buted in 2010. Its square case and em­pha­sis on in­stant leg­i­bil­ity made it an easy favourite for ad­her­ents of cool de­sign. Now, eight years later, Berthier has en­largeed the square and em­ployed light as the means to il­lu­mi­nate the new Carre H (RM34,400). Pol­ish­ing and mi­crobead­blasted fin­ishes on the 38mm case, as well as right-an­gled guil­loche work on the dial, add re­frac­tive sur­faces for an an­i­mated, al­most hyp­notic, lus­tre.

The use of an ex­clu­sive font for the in­dices – in­clud­ing the novel use of zero – adds new char­ac­ter to an Her­mes favourite, which comes with dial choices of dark grey or black, paired with nat­u­ral or black Bare­nia calf­skin. www.her­mes.com ≠
