A LIGHT TOUCH
TIME Hermes refreshes the design of Carre H.
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 ≠
