Hermès adds enamel dial to Slim d’Hermès

Stop the presses! Hermès has taken its already desirable Slim d’Hermès timepiece and turned up the desirability to 11, by offering a limited edition reference with an enamel dial. It’s called the Slim d’Hermès Email Grand Feu, and it’s incredible.

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.

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.
