Hermès Dressage watch, created in 2003 by Henri d’Origny, now appears in a modernized interpretation while remaining loyal to its original aesthetic. In welcoming the exclusive 11 ½ ’’’ movement, the Dressage collection asserts its sophisticated horological nature. This in-house movement, H1837 named after the founding date of the Maison Hermès. These timepieces are equipped with the exclusive H1837 caliber made for Hermès by Vaucher Manufacture. Dubbed the H1837, the movement provides 50 hours of power reserve thanks to twin spring barrels. It was designed with two barrels so that in the future it may power small complication. The new Dressage with H1837 is available with both a center seconds and date. These movements were developed exclusively for Hermes by Vaucher in Fleurier, of which Hermes owns 25% - the rest of which belongs to Parmigiani. Hermès leather is selected in accordance with the noble saddle-making traditions of the House. The resulting padded and saddle-stitched straps are entirely produced in the workshops of La Montre Hermès, in Switzerland.
