- Hermès that started life as a bridle maker in the days when horses were the only mode of transport, has maintained strong links with the equestrian world.
- This new model features a ceramic enamelled dial with a pair of magnificently harnessed horses as first seen on the 1950’s silk scarf of the same name designed by Hugo Grygkar, the famously talented in-house designer.
- The richly caparisoned and feathered horses are from an illustration of Napoleon I’s coronation coach in 1804. Each dial takes a month to make starting with a bas relief of the horses on a bisque Limoges ceramic base.
- Layer by layer of enamel paint is painstakingly applied and repeatedly fired to achieve the rich and lustrous effect.
- Only twenty-four of these exquisitely detailed watches will be made.
