The Spring/Summer 2016 Men’s Collection represents an entirely new level of sophistication in engineering and structural design. A clean, contemporary aesthetic and refined detailing set the standard for the Global Citizen’s premium travel experience.
Slim d’Hermès inspires a cadence based on pure, restrained lines. From the design
of the case to the outline of the numerals, the collection sets the pace for a return
to the quintessence of the watchmaking art. The Manufacture collection now
welcomes models paying tribute to the saddlery and leather-crafting expertise
of the Maison.

Its finely curved 42 mm steel or rose gold case frames a restrained dial featuring engraved hour-markers and slender leaf-type hands.

Instead we’re looking for tips to create an art collection of enduring value, with gallerist and collector Lucia Topalian.
