APRIL 16, 2014 - Hong Kong – DFS Group (DFS), the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, rolled out the red carpet today for a series of exquisite red-strapped watches from Hermès. The Heure-H Rouge Casaque collection will be sold exclusively at DFS airport stores and downtown T Gallerias and DFS Gallerias, in what is the latest example of the brand’s ongoing commitment to offer customers a carefully curated assortment of luxury products.
“We are incredibly excited to work with our longstanding partner Hermès on the exclusive release of this outstanding collection, which serves as a clear reminder of why global travellers with an eye for the unique, and an appreciation for fine watches and jewellery continue to shop at DFS,” said Christophe Chaix, Senior Vice President, Global Merchandising – Watches, Jewellery, Accessories & Sunglasses, DFS Group.
Proudly emblazoned with the iconic letter “H” – the emblem of the House of Hermès – each of the watches feature a Rouge Casaque bull-calf strap available in single or double wrap-around versions. The straps are crafted in the leather workshops of La Montre Hermès in Switzerland, which epitomises the House expertise and mastery in leather-making. A handy yet delicately disguised strap-changing mechanism allows different straps to match a particular outfit or occasion.
Framed by the square stainless steel watch case in silver or gold plated steel is a pristine, white watch dial with a stamped sunburst motif. In an alternative design that also exudes understated elegance, the white natural mother-of-pearl watch dial is set with 11 diamonds (0.09 ct).
DFS carries a wealth of equally distinct select watches from over 15 of the world’s leading luxury brands. DFS is also proud host of the Masters of Time event in Macau, an annual showcase of exclusive, rare and limited timepieces from some of the world’s most prestigious watchmakers.
