In 1937, Robert Dumas watched boats as he strolled along the Normandy coast. The anchor chains that held them in place caught his eye and inspired the shape of the iconic Chaine d'ancre motif. This exemplifies the "intelligence of the eye" and the harmonious balance between practicality and beauty that is quintessential to the Hermès philosophy. It was in 1938 when the Maison ventured into uncharted waters and crafted the first silver Chaine d'ancre bracelet. Since then, this motif has been an endless source of inspiration, undergoing a plethora of interpretations, utilizing various materials and shapes, all while preserving its essence. An Hermès icon, the signature toggle clasp becomes a motif. A style both graphic and pure.
