A typography watch

I’ve seen the H. Moser & Cie watch before and I came across it again this year and I must say that even though this is a simple pared down watch, there is something to be said for the typography of its logo because it certainly makes the watch.

Hermes Baselworld 2013

I personally love this. For this one, Hermes dipped into their past – back in 1912, when Jacqueline Hermès, fourth generation of the family was a child, she received from her father, Emile, a pocket watch with a clever system that holds it in place on a leather strap. It was made especially for her because she could not wear a watch at that young age nor carry one. Cut to Baselworld 2013, the brand is issuing a tribute to it with a release of 24 pieces of the pocket watch complete with the leather holder. related links Hermes
