The ladies Hermes watch is New Old Stock (NOS), never sold nor worn and complete with the original packaging.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
We have drawn a blank researching Hermes, but this watch definitely has nothing to do with the reknown handbag maker nor the courier company with the same name. The movement also brings up no results, and the paperwork is not completed. The paperwork include a price in decimal currency, and a post code so it is later than 1974. The uncompleted papers also have a gap for a date starting 19__, so must be from pre 1999. If you have any insights then please do contact us, as 1985 is just an educated guess this time!
The watch is in perfect condition. The basic hand winding movement is by Aphel, which we believe later became part of Seiko, and is working well, and the strap is perfect. The blank plastic packaging has space for a larger, gent’s version that we do not have.
This watch was bought purely because of the excellent condition and we suspected it would not be an ideal birth year watch, due to the lack of company history. That doesn’t stop it being an interesting find, and great value for money if you want to keep the budget down.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation packaging, blank papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
