The rich history of the Massachusetts coastline has attracted artists and creatives for generations, including legendary artistic director of Hermès Henri d’Origny. In 1991 he introduced the original Cape Cod “rectangle within a rectangle” wristwatch that has since become a household classic.

Drawing from another house staple, the Chaîne d’Ancre, the latest Nantucket TPM is accented with diamonds and a mother-of-pearl dial and interwoven with elegance.
