4. Quality Time

mothers-day-terranea-life5As a tribute to the famous vacation destination on the East Coast of the United States, the Cape Cod watch is an invitation to take to the high seas. Available in both non-set and gem-set versions, its attachments reinterpret the links that are characteristic of the Chaîne d’Ancre bracelet. The Tonneau model is created using a new Hermès-exclusive silver alloy, which preserves the characteristic glow of this precious metal over the years. Both the non-set and gem-set models tie at the wrist with their interchangeable straps, allowing for endless possibilities for wear.
