PublicationsTimepiece Extravaganza Introducing the Hermès Faubourg Polka Watch The miniaturised Faubourg model presented by Hermès in 2014 has inspired the quintessential design of the Faubourg Polka: a mother-of-pearl dial framed by a dainty round case. Share

The Hermès Faubourg Polka watch has an entirely redesigned bracelet consisting of interwoven dots and oblique lines, as if its curves were going off on a tangent, as if its lines were wary of excessive straightness. It thus sets the pace of time with a sense of total freedom as its lines and dots invent a new language, whose punctuation and grammar tell the tale of a far-sighted present.

Introducing the Hermès Faubourg Polka Watch

Embodying a subtle blend of watchmaking and Haute Joaillerie, the Hermès Faubourg Polka watch calls upon the patiently acquired skills of the artisans who craft it.

Introducing the Hermès Faubourg Polka Watch

Available in five versions – white or rose gold, gem-set or entirely paved with diamonds –, this jewellery watch draws in equal measure on fine craftsmanship and abstract art.
