Hermès Nantucket TPM

Downsizing does not mean simplifying, as is admirably demonstrated by the now extremely dainty Nantucket watch. At its birth in 1991, it featured an elongated case with the “anchor chain” motif dreamed up by Henri d’Origny, who Hermès Nantucket TPM had been asked to design a square shape. In the latest instalment of a resolutely rebellious creative saga, this Très Petit Modèle (17 x 32 mm) further accentuates the outline of the original drawing. Available in steel and opaline silver-toned dial or gem-set rose gold and natural white mother-of-pearl dial versions, Hermès Nantucket TPM is teamed with single or double wrap-around straps available in alligator or calfskin and in a wide range colours. Diamonds break out of the mould as the miniature Nantucket appears in a whirl of sparkling radiance. At its birth in 1991, this model was fitted with a rectangular case featuring the “Anchor Chain” motif created by Henri d’Origny who had been asked to design a square shape. Continuing the saga of an aesthetic rebellion, this “Très Petit Modèle” further accentuates the outline of the original design and celebrates diamonds for daily wear, dotted around as if the wind had scattered them across the Hermès Nantucket TPM watch. Nantucket thus becomes a relaxed piece of daytime jewellery.

Designed with a steel case and a rhodium-plated sand-coloured dial, this Hermès Nantucket TPM watch, driven by a quartz movement, is fitted with a choice of single tour alligator straps in smooth ember or matt étoupe, Mykonos blue, cactus green, abysse blue, black variations.
