HERMES The Dressage Watch - Annual Calender

Time is mankind’s noblest conquest. Tamed, mastered and masterfully cadenced, it performs spectacular figures on the dial of the new Dressage annual calendar watch from Hermès. The frenzied gallop of the seconds hand, the sedate trot of the minutes and the steady step of the hours. The graceful pirouette of the retrograde date hand as it jumps back to its point of departure. The spinning carrousels of the twin day and month discs. Schooled in the perfect discipline of precision timekeeping, this watch immediately draws the eye to the elegance of its rose or white gold case featuring two stirrups extending the rounded curve of the dial and creating a subtle contrast between the flat surface of the satin-brushed case middle and the polished bezel. A glimpse behind the scenes: the sapphire crystal enables one to admire the architecture and the finishing of the exclusive movement with its hand-bevelled bridges, its rhodiumed mainplate and its gold oscillating weight, decorated with a sprinkling of Hs. A superlative demonstration of expertise for collectors of rare models and devotees of Fine Watchmaking. 

The Dressage annual calendar watch houses a self-winding movement crafted by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier – a virtuoso of fine mechanical engineering, with which Hermès has reinforced its ties. A single artisan assembles and adjusts the subtle choreography of the 329 parts in this exceptional calibre. The sophisticated annual-calendar mechanism drives a central pointer-type date display running over a 225° segment. Taking account of 30- and 31-day months, the date requires only one correction per year, at the end of February, by means of special pushpieces integrated into the case middle. Adorned with hollowed Arabic numerals, the dial comes in a choice of black, blue or white, with pink or white day/month discs matching the gold of the case.
