Hermès Cape Cod TGM Bicolore

When Hermès's famed artistic director, Henri d'Origny, design the Cape Cod in 1991, he probably didn't anticipate the watch would go on to become the icon it is today. Inspired by the maison's Chaîne d'Ancre motif, he famously defied the brief given to him to create a square-shaped watch and made a "square-within-rectangle" timepiece instead. The steel très grand modèle (TGM) models released recently give us more to love about the distinctive ticker, especially the version with bi-colour calfskin strap, which is expertly hand-crafted and finished in the Hermès ateliers.
