Hermès creations are not simply objects; they are a reflection of the times and they appeal to our emotions. The Nantucket watch is steeped in history. Hermès has once again paired this watch with its early companion: the anchor chain. Discover the four new versions of this legendary model.
The Normandy coast as a source of inspiration
All the models sport a "Chaîne d’ancre" bracelet made out of the same material as the case. The anchor chain was designed by Robert Dumas during a trip to the Normandy coast in 1838. He was initially inspired by the chain links of a boat's anchor to create a bracelet that has since permeated the Maison's many crafts. Today, it has become an Hermès classic. The Nantucket watch is closely tied to the Cape Cod, both of which were released in 1991. The former features a rectangle within a rectangle, while the latter, a square within a rectangle.
An anchor chain bracelet for the new Nantucket
The new Nantucket collection comes in four versions: two in rose gold and two in stainless steel, with or without diamonds. Those in rose gold have a white mother-of-pearl dial, while the steel models boast a sandblasted rhodium-plated or silvered opaline dial. The watch houses a Swiss-made quartz movement. The rectangular 17x23 mm case is made entirely at the Hermès workshops. The font used for the numerals also draws its inspiration from the anchor chain. The incorporation of diamonds adds additional sparkle. The bracelet was made to be as lightweight and flexible as possible. The watch is protected by a sapphire crystal.
