Emphasising on the role of straps on timepieces, Hermès Cape Cod was born from the singular vision of Henri d’Origny. Invented in 1991 by sketching a square inside a rectangle, Cape Cod consistently adapts to the mood of the times, expressing abundance through fascinating interpretations of the original design. The new masculine models are also presented with a distinct infusion of watchmaking expertise, all enhanced by the signature Hermès fine leather craftmanship.
Blue, anthracite or black: the Cape Cod dial appears in new shades that are echoed in an indigo blue, graphite matt or black matt alligator strap. This year, the dials are also attired in lacquer, as Cape Cod sets the stage for subtly graded shades of red and brown, creating reflections that shimmer delicately across the surface.
From cutting to the final burnishing, as well as the famous ‘saddle stitching’, the hand-crafted expertise enables the Maison to offer unusual approaches: a wristband formed from a traditional strap merged into a cuff strap and made it in alligator or Barénia calfskin, or a two-tone smooth calfskin strap combining Malta blue with Hermès red or étoupe.
