Where Watchmaking and Leather Savoir-Faire Share a Roof, and Much More – A Day at La Montre Hermès, Part II

One of the reasons is that there are in fact two distinct, yet intimately connected, operations taking place under the same roof. The first, and the reason La Montre Hermès exists in the first place, is watchmaking. As we saw, the breadth and depth of in-house horological work taking place there is considerable. The French maison is truly one of the major watch players in the city.
