Hermès: Pendentif Boule


Where the time ticks by with exquisite delicacy.

BY La Montre Hermès

Hermès introduces an unusual interpretation of its Pendentif Boule by exploring the art of cloisonné enamelling. The unique demands of this unique skill are rendered all the more complex by the rounded nature of the back of the watch on which the enameller creates a unique motif for Hermès.

Everything begins with a white gold half-sphere, on which the artisan marks off the central point of the motif using a compass. The initially geometrical operation then becomes unmistakably artistic with the putting in place of white gold cloisons or partitions, a change from the yellow gold generally used in cloisonné enamelling.
