“A few years ago Jean-Louis Dumas, then at the head of Hermès, asked me to think about ‘what an Hermès timepiece for a travelling dandy might look like’,” said architect and designer Marc Berthier in 2010. While today we are more used to seeing a shape similar to this thanks to the Apple Watch, in 2010 a squarish case wildly stood out. And now in 2017 a brand-new Carré H arrives for the sophisticated, sporty, elegant man.

De Fossard Solar Time Clock: Appreciating An Extreme Achievement Without A Loupe

/
The de Fossard Solar Time Clock isn't so much a clock but a time-telling sculpture because it unites the past, present, and future in a single object.
