Historical luxury French House Hermès is not only widely known for its expertise in leather-making, it has also forged its reputation as a watchmaking powerhouse. What started as an unrelenting pursuit of excellence in crafting equine saddles and harnesses quickly expanded to include belts, jackets, bags and watch straps. The first Hermès watches were made in the 1920s, and today, the House continues to delight watch enthusiasts with its minimal, classic and elegant designs.
Following the recently concluded Hermès Heritage—In Motion exhibition at Liat Towers, the House’s new exhibition, titled Time, A Hermès Object, explores iterations of time as a huge playground, complete with immersive and multi-sensorial experiences. Using light, sound and motion effects, the exhibition is designed to stir emotions, open up interludes and create spaces, while showcasing the brand’s timepieces: Arceau L’heure de la lune, Galop d’Hermès, Carré H and Cape Cod.
‘Time, a Hermès Object’ runs from May 24th to June 2nd 2019 at Ngee Ann City atrium level 1.
