Discreetly elegant, the new Slim d’Hermès GMT watch, with a slate gray dial and a smoked crystal, offers an interesting take on a GMT. Powered by the ultra-thin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement topped with an ultra-thin GMT module made exclusively for Hermès by Agenhor, the 39.5mm case is crafted of palladium. In addition to 42 hours of power reserve, the watch indicates the date, hours, minutes, GMT, as well as day/night indications for both home and local time. The GMT subdial is silver with unusually placed numerals — a nod to Hermès’s whimsical side. The subdial at 6 o’clock shows the date, and the two dots — blue for night and white for day — show whether it is day or night in both local and home time. The watch also features a shaded gray sapphire crystal caseback and is finished with a matte graphite-gray alligator strap with blue stitching. All of the numerals use the exclusive numeral font designed by Philippe Apeloig.
