Movements are still from Swiss ETA, and the quality and style are still good. But take this pictured model and consider the price - and to me it looks more $2,000 sporty than considerably above that. Maybe it is the orange strap (it also comes in back or brown rubber, or a steel and titanium bracelet). Dial design borrows heavily from the IWC Aquatimer Chronograph watch range, mixed with the standard Clipper design that we have been accustomed to. It is a very "right now" look that I fear won't look that awesome in a few years. I am really interested in fashion brands like these offering timeless looks that will look fresh (and unique) in a decade or two from now. Having said all that the Clipper sport watch series is still a damn wearable watch line with a cool look and decent features. Case here is 44mm wide in its complex constructed look and readable dial. The watch is water resistant to 200 meters and has inside a decorated automatic Valjoux 7750 mechanical movement. More on the rest of the line once I am able to check them out. Look for these new Hermes Clipper watch models soon.
