Hermes is introducing a new watch called the Grandes Heures. The casing is in the Cape Cod design and will be offered in rose gold with the choice of copper or opal face. Leather or exotic strap, automatic movement, etc. The truly fascinating part, however, is the movement. While keeping accurate time (of course), this watch alters your perception of time passing. Everyone's day is different. Some people feel the hours before lunch are interminable, noon to two o'clock passes in an eyeblink, and 2 to 6 pm drags by, but happy hour (or hourS) passes in another blink of an eye. There's a version for those people. There is also another version for those of you who like lunch hours long, and afternoons short. If I recall correctly, there are six or so versions of the Grandes Heures in all. The numbers on the watch face are bunched around the dial in an almost Dali-esque/Dr Seussian fashion, illustrating how our perception of time is altered during the day depending on our daily activities. But the magic is in the movement. The minute hand travels around as normal, but the hour hand travels either quickly or slowly around the dial between numbers (spaced far apart or close together). I can't wait for this baby to come out. I'm not really a watch person, but I've already decided that I've got to have this one. It's sheer genius! A wonderfully fanciful fusion of art and technology. I love it!!
