HERMÈS CAPE COD CHAÎNE D’ANCRE TIMEPIECE COLLECTION
The Cape Cod Chaîne d’Ancre is dressed in diamonds and obsidian to reveal new precious and distinctive facets of its personality.
June 11, 2021
This year, the Hermès Cape Cod is once again transformed: shimmering with diamonds and carved in obsidian stone – a grey vitreous volcanic rock – or sandblasted, gilded and lacquered, its distinctive graphic shape plays with materials and textures.
Hovering between contrast and harmony, a first Hermès Cape Cod Chaîne d’Ancre watch features a precious rose gold case set with 52 diamonds, framing an obsidian dial stands out, illuminated by interlaced links set with 181 diamonds. A second, smaller model matches the tone of its gemset steel case with the anthracite shades of the volcanic dial and gemset anchor chains. Finally, a third similarly small-sized rose gold version set with 46 diamonds is distinguished by its sand-blasted gold dial adorned with gemset anchor chains.
Paired with a single- or double-tour strap in Chantilly-coloured or pearl grey alligator, crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops, these new Cape Cod Chaîne d’ancre models display hours and minutes, swept over by slender gold or rhodium-plated hands.
