Cape Cod series watches were born in 1991, stemming from the bold and eclectic design of Henri d’ Origny. At first Henri was invited to design a square watch, but he preferred rectangular designs. A bold idea germinated from this, why not split Hermes’ iconic design ‘anchor chain’ into two? Henri took a bold mix of these two shapes. In the Cape Cod series, the square dial is embedded in a rectangular frame, and the double-circle strap design is more elegant, giving this watch a unique avant-garde feel. Timeless and interesting.
