Hermès presented the H08 new watch collectıon

Hermès has invested considerable resources in developing its watchmaking division in recent years, and they have just released an all-new men’s watch collection for Watches & Wonders 2021. The Hermès H08 fills in one of the most glaring gaps in the brand’s catalog by offering a casual everyday watch that’s versatile and tough but still has that uniquely Hermès quirkiness and style.

The totally new case of the Hermès H08 feels like a younger sibling of the Carré H that sheds some of the eccentricity in exchange for more mainstream design choices. The lightweight titanium case, comfortable and well-constructed strap, lumed hands, AR-coating, and yes, 100M of water resistance, back this up pretty well.

The Hermès H08 comes in three varieties: classic titanium; black DLC-coated titanium (which is the one I went hands-on with here); and a Graphene case. At the same time, they can be supplemented with textile straps of blue or black color or bracelets made of black or orange rubber.
