The signature pointed studs of Hermès' popular timepiece collection is interpreted in sparkling new editions.

French luxury label Hermès has added to its Médor line with two new timepieces: Médor Secrète and Médor Serti Baguette. Inspired by the pointed studs that Hermès once incorporated into its dog collars, the new sparkling watches reflect the maison's mastery in three different fields: horology, gem-setting and leatherwork.

The Médor Secrète (pictured above) flaunts 10 white diamond-set pyramids, resulting in a gemstone count of 4427. The largest pyramid on this cuff timepiece hides the dial that features pyramid-shaped index markers. To ensure a clean aesthetic, that puts the focus solely on the gleam of the white gold and the sparkle of the diamonds, the crown has been cleverly placed on the case back, hidden from view and immediately offering the timepiece to be the ultimate jewellery accessory.

Meanwhile, the Médor Serti Baguette, with its three pyramids – one on the case and two on the straps – features 656 diamonds including one on the crown. Each of these stones were individually cut before being precisely placed to fully encapsulate the white gold case. Giving a bright contrast to the diamonds, both in terms of colour and texture, is the hand-made alligator strap, available in either sapphire blue or geranium.
