  • Catalogue Essay

    The Hermès H08 Limited Edition for HODINKEE is a minimalist study in contrast. The watch features a lightweight matte black DLC-coated titanium case and polished ceramic bezel, a combination appearing for the first time in the H08 line and that maintains the collection's multifaceted approach to design and wearability. An intermix of taut and fluid lines on the rounded case and dial are a signal to the efficacy of the watch's all-around qualities. Cast in a distinguished shade of gray, the watch’s dial and strap conjure a feeling of frictionless, streamlined modernity.

    The multilayered dial is rendered in taupe for a one-of-a-kind monochromatic effect that's further complemented by a matching taupe textured silicone strap for all-around comfort and utility. The numerals are a custom Hermès creation, while the arrow-tipped seconds hand incorporates a splash of the company's signature shade of orange. Inside is the mechanical self-winding Hermès Manufacture caliber H1837 movement.

    The H08 collection is refreshing in its thoughtful approach to watchmaking and design and was first revealed by Hermès at Watches & Wonders 2021.

    Generously donated by HODINKEE, the watch is being sold to benefit the missions of Swiss Institute.

    The buyer of this lot may be eligible to receive a charitable tax deduction for their purchase. Please see section 10 of this Auction’s Conditions of Sale.
