  • Catalogue Essay

    In the 1930s Jaeger-LeCoultre created a gorgeous watch for women. Nicknamed 'Etrier', French for stirrup, the original case was an unusually oriented rectangle fixed to the bracelet by two stirrup-shaped fastenings. This simple yet powerful design code allowed for endless declinations, and men’s versions were soon offered. The propinquity between this design and the world of horses did not remain unnoticed to Hermès who added this collection to its offer.
    The present watch is a very attractive example of the men’s Etrier. Made in stainless steel, the dial proudly displays the Hermès signature at 6 o’clock. The caseback is also engraved Hermès Paris and stock numbers have been hand engraved underneath the case number.
    The refined luxury of the case’s shape is further reinforced by the addition of a superb Milanese mesh bracelet, both very well preserved. This watch is a great example of the collaboration between two major actors of the luxury industry.
