I Just Worked Out the Cost-Per-Wear of an Hermès Watch and I’m Tempted
There are few brands, if any, like Hermès. As one of the oldest fashion houses in the world, it’s built up its reputation on quality pieces that have become iconic. It doesn’t pander to seasons in quite the same way as other mega houses—hype is the last word associated with the 182-year-old label as it focuses on its classics all year round. Sure, you could argue that the Birkin has peaks of popularity (that episode of Sex and the City; Kris Jenner’s Birkin room) but it remains the ultimate designer handbag regardless. What I’m saying is when you buy an item from Hermès, you own it for life. It’s not the kind of brand you’d want, or need, to switch out according to the seasons. Everything the brand creates is timeless. While we’ve often focussed on the brand’s handbags or its H Oran sandals, there’s another accessory that the brand is also well-known for: it’s watches.
