It’s all about balanced juxtaposition for the Hermès H08 watch — the Maison’s newest timepiece designed for the modern man.

Brand new for Watches & Wonders 2021, the Hermès H08 carries diametric opposition in its very name, with a ‘0’ perched on the edge of nothingness; the ‘8’, in contrast, tunnelling towards infinity. It’s this manner of divergence that’s definitive of the overarching design cues, too.

From a circular dial framed by a case oscillating between angles and curves to an aesthetic that straddles both sports-inspired and sophisticated notes, a sense of multi-faceted versatility colours through the Hermès H08 collection. It should come as no surprise, then, that this chameleonic sleight of the hand represents just the kind of modern-day man Véronique Nichanian designs for within the broader Hermès universe.

As for mechanical specifics, the H08 beats to the rhythm of the mechanical self-winding Manufacture Hermès H1837 movement in the manner of three different models. The first, a graphene-filled composite case with a black gold-coated dial and a black rubber strap. The second, in matte-black, diamond-like carbon-coated titanium; the third, in satin-brushed titanium. A design described as ‘all-terrain’, taking the contemporary gentleman from boardroom to adventure in time and in stride.

Laurent Dordet, CEO of Hermès Watches, kindly expands further on this exciting release — as well as his own career and role within the Maison — for 2021’s edition of Watches and Wonders. Read on for more.
