Hermès Cape Cod Chaîne d'ancre - pure lines, bold spirit
By SENATUS Magazine | 22 February 2023

The distinctive and impertinent Cape Cod watch from Hermès was launched in 1991, designed y Henri d'Origny who had ntended it to be a square watch, but the timepiece turned out to be "a square in a rectangle".

With its pure lines and bold spirit, the Cape Cod shakes up existing aesthetic codes. Its original case composed of two "anchor chain" half-links plays with the emblematic motif created by Robert Dumas in 1938: a design inspired by a boat chain, which has become a brand style signature.

Displaying the innate ease of a timeless icon, the Cape Cod watch finds its way through the years with a light-hearted attitude, freely and joyfully undergoing successive transformations. Two new feminine gemset or non-set models interpret the double chain on a graphic dial in shades of Glycine or blue.

The intertwined links stand out against a background of stamped horizontal lines, all coated in tinted lacquer and swept over by fine baton-type hands. Crafted in the Hermès Horloger workshops, an alligator or calfskin strap accentuates the soft dusty shades of these contemporary and elegant creations.
