In our digital everyday life, when you can check the current time on any device, the adherents to standard arrow watches are only collectors hunting for exceptional models of bewildering complexity and skill. And although the quartz counterparts are not fully mechanical, they are definitely worthy of attention, especially if presented by the legendary French fashion house with a nearly two-hundred-year history of producing premium accessories.
We are talking about the new Médor Rock watches in the "timeless" Hermès Médor line, continuing the history of the famous pyramid stud—a typical stud for hunting dog collars. At first, this simple, yet recognizable to upper-class persons, mark of distinction moved to the brand’s cult bracelet—Collier de Chien, and then became the main source of inspiration for the Médor watches, first released in 1993.
The new versions are inlaid with diamonds and fitted with triple tour straps echoing the color of the dial. As before, the cover concealing a secret opens with a press of the crown, paying tribute to a survival of the past such as a pocket watch.
