Since 2012, all Hermès’ Dressage models have strived to incorporate exclusive Manufacture movements that reflect the enduring passion for fine mechanisms which have reflected the manufacturers’ quest for excellence since its founding in 1837.
2003 saw the birth of the Dressage collection, with the latest model coming in two colours: one with an opaline silvered dial and a matt havana alligator strap and the other with a black dial and a matt black alligator strap.
Like the other Manufacture movements from the house, its circular-grained and curved bridges are hand-finished and its oscillating weight features a sprinkling of “Hs”. The round shape of the elements occupying the spaces between the lugs are inspired by the equestrian world of Hermès and shaped like stirrup bars.
The roots of the saddle and harness maker permeate through the leather straps which are indeed crafted like harnesses, with padding and saddle-stitching from the specialised La Montre Hermès workshops in Bienne.
Finally, an inner bezel ring accentuates the overall depth effect. At its heart beats the Manufacture H1925 movement named in reference to 1925, the date when the first chronographs bearing the Hermès signature appeared.
La Montre Hermès CEO Luc Perramond said, "The Hermès watch business in the Middle East is growing very fast since 2 years at a rate of about 60%. We are expanding our presence through the Hermès stores and specialized watch stores".
The Dressage is priced at $11,500 and is now available in all Hermès boutiques across the UAE as well as Seddiqi & Sons outlets.
