The Hermès Heure H Double Jeu plays with the codes of Hermès’ identity. In its vertical-set version, the capital letter is boldly enhanced with diamonds, while in the horizontal setting, it slips away, its lines softened. A joyful sleight of hand that reinvents the spirit of the Heure H watch, designed in 1996 by Philippe Mouquet.
Playful and contemporary, the Heure H Double Jeu watch carries within its square the paradox of lacquer and diamonds. Its steel case celebrates contrasts. In black or white lacquer, it is reinvented through two graphic compositions that subtly stage the letter H. Whether vertically adorned with 122 diamonds or embellished in its horizontal version with 93 diamonds framing a dial also set with 138 diamonds, it skilful double jeu that either accentuates the recreation_ extends an invitation to temporal recreation by playing with tones and luminescence. A H or merely hints at it. The Hermès Heure H Double Jeu black Barénia or white grained calf- skin strap, enlarged by 3 mm on either side, merges with the dial in a simple tour around the wrist.

The Hermès Heure H Double Jeu is thus the custodian of a companionable, enduring and joyous vision of time.
