Hermès is part of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, a foundation of the greatest watch brands in the world. Hermès sits alongside the likes of MB&F, Vacheron Constantin and A. Lange & Söhne in this elite club.Hermès also bought up Natéber SA in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 2012 for dials and Joseph Erard SA in Le Noirmont in 2013 for cases. As from 2017, the case and dial entities have been brought together in Le Noirmont under the name of Les Ateliers d’Hermès Horloger. Hermès now has internal control over movements, cases and dials. In 2019 Hermès has in its horological portfolio everything from GMTs, to ultra-slims, even tourbillons.
