A Luxury Timepiece precisely designed to display the correct positions of the constellations as they move across the sky.
The celestially inspired design features the emblematic “Duc Attelé” Hermès emblem which is created with using the paillonné enamel technique. First the gold dial is meticulously hand-engraved with the Hermes pattern, then covered with translucent blue pigments and repeatedly fired in a kiln at nearly 800°C. Hand made gold stars also placed during the enamelling process for further visual effect.
The watch is powered by the auto-mechanical Hermes H1928 movement with a solid gold oscillating weight adorned with a sprinkling of H symbols, visible through the sapphire crystal case-back . Paired with a matching indigo colored gator strap.
