Today we’re taking a close up look at two new creations from one of our favorite luxury houses, Hermès. Le Pendentif Boule and La Pendulette 8 Jours are not your typical timepieces. Take a look:
Le Pendentif Boule
This is a necklace that bears a 21.6mm-diameter spherical white gold case, housing a quartz movement crafted in Switzerland. The boule is set with 420 diamonds on its middle and 63 diamonds on its crown, while the back is covered with matte indigo-blue alligator. The mother-of-pearl dial features rhodium-plated pearl-shaped hour markers. The chain of the necklace is white gold.
La Pendulette 8 Jours
