Lot Essay

Hermès time cultivates the ‘extravagant’ idea of reconciling rigorous discipline with whimsical fancy. It takes a deft ability for handling paradoxes to imagine that the calling of a watch should be to kindle our emotions. Such is the purpose of the unique Slim d’Hermès L’heure impatiente timepiece unveiled at Only Watch 2017, whose complication invites us to look forward to an upcoming moment.

The jubilant ritual consists of setting the counter of the watch to the time of the eagerly awaited event that will take place in less than 12 hours. An hour before it occurs, the mechanical hourglass is set in motion and its progress can be followed at 6 o’clock on the dial. This complication that stirs our feelings and heightens our sense of pleasurable expectation is an exquisite torture that culminates when the note rings out. The striking mechanism has been designed to ensure a lasting, velvety-smooth sound that is also delightfully modulated for the wearer’s ears only. The playful and quirky ‘Impatient Hour’ complication is based on this companionable rapport.

EXPERIENCE
