Jacqueline Hermès was an energetic child in 1912 when she was given a gift by her father: an unusual pocket watch with a leather holder designed to let her wear it on her wrist. In 2012, 100 years later, the watch was reinvented under the name In the Pocket. Hermès has now issued a second piece in the series, a rose gold watch with a 50-hour power reserve and a silver dial. The alligator leather holder is handcrafted in the Hermès studio in Switzerland and is composed of three layers of leather expertly polished with beeswax. The 178-piece limited-edition creation is also designed to be carried as a stylish pocket watch.
