Jewel of the day: Hermes Faubourg Gold and Diamond Watch

Hermes has some iconic watches in its catalogue (the H Heure, the Kelly, the Cape Cod) but the Faubourg is somewhat unusual (and welcome) in that it uses none of the well-worn Hermes design elements. It has no H, no Kelly lock or turnkey, no chaine d’ancre form. It is a simple and elegant round white gold shape set with diamonds, featuring a white lacquered dial.

It is available with an all-gold strap; this version, with a barenia calfskin strap, sells for USD $10,025.
