A. Lange & Söhne introduces Richard Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ with white gold case and black dial

Rejoice A. Lange & Söhne aficionados! The Saxon brand has just revived the Richard Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ in a limited edition of 218 watches. Each will boast a white-gold case, black dial and a black alligator strap. The watch was announced at the brand’s dealer conference in Dresden, though we have a suspicion that this watch was originally intended to be unveiled at the formerly annual Watches & Wonders (now biennial).

If you missed getting the pink-gold and platinum references, this is quite possibly your last chance at this timepiece.

Review: Hermès Slim d’Hermès 39.5mm

At BaselWorld 2015 Hermès unveiled a brand new collection of watches under the banner of Slim d’Hermès. Both men and women were catered for but the really big news was the in-house, ultra-thin automatic movements packed into the 39.5mm models. Those watches immediately pegged our interest, so we were excited to receive the rose-gold Slim d’Hermès 39.5mm for review.

We've been waiting to see the Slim d'Hermès in person since we first saw it at BaselWorld 2015.

These aren’t all new watches, instead they are different references though one in particular, the Perpetual Calendar Heritage Limited Edition,  is so distinctive compared to its predecessors, it could be considered an all new watch.

With the launch of the Slim d’Hermès collection in 2015, Hermès gave the world a collection that it hoped would be an everyday staple for those that wore mechanical timepieces. It was an interesting and elegant family, one that we liked, and now in 2016, Hermès has decided to give the family an artistic boost.

The Slim d’Hermès Mille Fleurs du Mexique will grab attention, and only six will ever be made.

Introducing the slim d’Hermès collection

We saw glimpses of them at BaselWorld 2015, and now the cat is officially out of the bag. Hermès has just unleashed its new slim d’Hermès collection in the region, consisting of watches that were created out of a desire to focus on essentials and aesthetic purity.

Graphic designer Philippe Apeloig came up with the hour marker font that you see on both watches. We think it suits the watch perfectly.
