The Hermès In The Pocket For the Only Watch with a unique combination
More news from the Only Watch auction: Hermès has just released that it will be including the "In The Pocket" watch in the line up for the November 7 charity auction.
For Only Watch 2015, Hermes has reinterpreted their iconic "In the Pocket" timepiece, uniquely designing the case in 18 karat rose gold. A pocket watch that can be transformed at will into a wristwatch, it’s a historic design with roots tracing back to 1912. The 40mm pocket watch quickly increases to 49mm when worn as a wristwatch.
The black dial’s red minute and seconds tracks, echoing the H red emblematic of the House of Hermes, create a sharp contrast to the H red swift calfskin. The mechanical, self-winding H1837 movement features a 50-hour power reserve.
The design was re-designed and released in 2012 with the name "In The Pocket." The piece has returned to the market with a unique combination of rose gold case, black dial, and fitted into a H red Swift calfskin holster. The watch is 40 mm in diameter and becomes 49 mm in diameter when placed in the holster. The watch had a subsidiary seconds dial at 4 o'clock. The caliber H1837 automatic movement was made in-house and has 28 jewels.
