When one thinks of sporty watches, Hermes is not exactly the first brand that pops into mind. Elegant watches? They’ve got plenty. Statement watches? More than a few. But the only sport chrono in the Hermes family is the Clipper; first introduced in 1981, and now updated for 2010. And by updated we mean a surprisingly un-hefty, forty-four-millimeter case (made of titanium for lightness and strength), plus a rubber bracelet that’s quite fetching in Hermes orange for the first time (above). The Clipper is powered by a thirteen-jewel automatic movement with a forty-six-hour power reserve, and it’s water-resistant to two-hundred meters. More than enough to qualify as a sporting watch, but it doesn’t have to be. This is Hermes we’re talking about, so the clipper also comes in an exceptionally elegant time and date version.
