It is a transformed stirrup. A dreamlike arch. A futuristic space vessel. Flowing and luminous, it plays with time. It is the new Hermes Galop d’Hermès watch. “More than a piece of jewellery and more than a watch, Galop d’Hermès is a style object devoid of any formalism. It is free-spirited, witty and passionate.” It’s almost nothing, yet it changes everything. In the Hermès watchmaking workshops, a choreography of controlled actions led by skilled hands polish and smooth cases. Dials are crafted and then given their colour. Straps are made using the finest leather and Hermès expertise. All Hermès craftsmen are virtuosos with the materials they shape.
Created by Hermès perfumer Christine Nagel in 2006, Hermes Galop d’Hermès watch is inspired by the equestrian universe and embodies freedom of movement: “At Hermès, I discovered the true femininity of leather. I composed Galop d’Hermès like a painting with two materials emblematic to Hermès and to perfumery: leather and rose.”
“At Hermès I discovered all the femininity of leather. I composed Hermes Galop d’Hermès watch like a painting with two main colours… Two raw materials that are emblematic to Hermès and to perfumery: leather and rose.”
Hermes Galop d’Hermès watch is a contemporary manifesto that expresses absolute freedom in feminine expression and in a perfume. The leather livens up the rose and the rose carries away the leather in a fiery dance.
