[Watch House Brand News] Nantucket watches have been continuously consolidated and developed for nearly 30 years. Its story revolves closely around the “chain link”, first in 1991. At that time, Henri d’Origny, a Hermès designer who was good at breaking conventions, used his bold and neat shelter to outline the sister models of Cape Cod watches on paper, namely the equally unique Nantucket watches. This courageous and confident timepiece is characterized by its case shaped like a “rectangle in a rectangle”, which is unprecedented. It is inspired by the chain links of the chain (Chaine d’ancre). It was written by Robert Dumas. Created in 1938, it became a classic element of Hermès.
Today, Nantucket watches once again continue to write wonderful stories with anchor chain elements, while also paying tribute to the past. In this new chapter, the iconic chain link elements have a breakthrough design, which is perfectly integrated with ingenious posture to create a lightweight and flexible stainless steel or rose gold bracelet. Adhering to the spirit of being loyal to the overall design, the glyph design of the digital hour markers on the dial is also inspired by the anchor chain pattern.
The case of the Nantucket watch is made of rose gold or stainless steel and is made by the Hermès watch workshop. The case of the stainless steel model is decorated with beautiful diamonds that seem to be sprinkled randomly. This sprinkling inlay method makes the light flow on the sandblasted silver dial like a playful, more pleated brilliance; on the rose gold model, Beautiful diamonds sparkle around the dial made of mother-of-pearl in a classic jewellery setting. With a light and natural style, the Nantucket watch has a distinct personality but still maintains an elegant appearance.
