Introduced at the SIHH in 2019, this 100 piece limited edition watch shows the ability Hermès has to produce something special. This watch has a dual moon phases display showing both the Northern and Southern hemisphere. Moreover, the moons are made of mother of pearl and are a part of a beautiful aventurine dial. The Southern moon bears a very fine Pegasus made by the artist and designer Dimitri Rybaltchenko.

The present lot is offered in a very attractive condition as a full set with certificate of origin and presentation case that doubles as a watch winder.
