And A Bonus....
Fresh off the SIHH 2019 watch fair, the luxury giant, Hermes, debuted at the SIHH fair with a new watch line - The Galop.According to the maker, the inspiration for the line was as follows: 'Galop d’Hermès was born of Ini Archibong’s detailed observations of bits, stirrups and harnesses in the Conservatoire des créations Hermès. The designer drew inspiration from every object and component of the harness collections. Hybridisation. He grasped their ingenuity, their technicality, their perfect balance, their avant-garde nature – and thus their beauty. A mission that lost nothing of the movement that shifts lines, or the function that embodies and gives life – with complete elegance.'
